I wish I could think of things to say on here like I used to. I guess I’ll just write for a while. Sometimes I just need some momentum.
I’ve been keeping very busy for the most part. When I’m not working or visiting with people I’m usually planning to organize things in my house or taking long walks, or cooking something, or vacuuming up the fantastic amounts of hair that Maya leaves on the floor on a daily basis. Nothing spectacular, but busy none-the-less.
I don’t really feel pregnant anymore, except that I have started to show now (and by this I mean others can tell that my belly looks of baby, Jeff and I could tell for a while). It’s strange to have my body change like this. When I feel my stomach it’s all tough and smooth. My boobs have become offensively large, and while Jeff seems to think this is great, I feel a bit out of my element with these bad boys. High class problems, I know… It balances out with the high amount of energy I have lately, and my ability to stay totally happy all day long. Not that happiness was really an issue for me in the past few months, but I routinely felt “blah” and now I feel “yeah!” Second trimester is actually pretty nice so far. My sprout is roughly the size of a potato now, which is funny to me. I like how they compare the growth to fruits and vegetables. I guess it wouldn’t be nearly so romantic to say “Your little baby is about the size of a roll of masking tape!”
There have been things that I have greatly enjoyed lately. I have gotten into the routine of drinking a warm cup of raspberry leaf tea every morning. It’s been so hot that tea doesn’t always sound appealing to me unless it’s iced- but at 7:30 in the morning, with the cool night still hanging in the air, it just hits the spot. I like making new food creations. I like harvesting tomatoes.
I’ve also been really happy about Jeff and I. We feel almost rhythmic at this point- we dance. We were talking about a couple of friends of ours that have been having a hard time allowing each other to be separate. We had this read at our wedding, and I truly believe that by consciously working to allow for each other to be ourselves it has in fact helped us grow in intimacy and trust every day.

I miss taking pictures… Lately my camera hasn’t been doing what I want it to. I hate auto focus. I wish I could just tell it to focus on something and it would!!! Grrr. I should probably study the thing more, but I’m leaning more and more towards getting a better camera. This one is really good for casual pictures, but the kind I was starting to take needed something more.
Anyway, I’ll try to take some good pictures later and post them if I can.
