Wanna play catch (up)?!

I know, I know, it's been forever. I still have a week off of school for Winter Break so I will get this thing caught up.

What a crazy year so far! We can't believe the school year is half over already! Courtney has been busy coaching wrestling and is at practice right now. This coming weekend is our last free weekend until March because he has a tournament every Saturday (& some Fridays too!). State wrestling is the last weekend in February and then baseball practice starts the following Monday. We will have 3 weeks of just practice with no games and then it begins...2, 3, & sometimes 4 games a week! There are a few weeks that I'll be watching baseball every night Monday - Thursday!! Good thing I bought a stadium seat because my butt is going to be tired!!

I think I am at 16 weeks as of Tuesday the 30th. I will know for sure on January 14 when I finally have a sonogram!! I am so excited! We heard the heartbeat again today and it was 152 bpm. Apparently the earlier in your pregnancy the higher the heartrate so it dropping from 160 to 152 is a fine and dandy thing. How were we to know - this is our first rodeo! I'm dealing with my weight gain which has not been too bad so far. I know it will get worse! Clothes are beginning to get tight and I'm down to 1 pair of "normal" jeans that I can wear...sort of. They were tight today when I put them on but I'm attributing that to the fact that they just came out of the dryer. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! I did however buy a tub full of maternity clothes off of craigslist that I'm excited about. They aren't the cutest but the number of pants alone is worth the money they cost! I have a feeling maternity clothes are going to be so comfy I may never want to go back to "normal" clothes.

Aside from all of that I can't think of anything too interesting to tell. Our lives are pretty boring right now, I know. We did have a fabulous Christmas with all of our family. Joy was even here for a week! Hopefully she'll come back in April and I'll have a baby shower then. Hope everyone has a great New Year!!

Glad to hear from you! I missed you not being a regular blogger. I haven't done it in a while either.
