then and now

It's so wonderful not being pregnant anymore ... yet strange and a bit sad as well.  There are so many thoughts, emotions and feelings floating around these days.  This is such a special time that we are experiencing with our first baby.  However, I miss feeling those sweet little kicks.  I do not miss those uncomfortable stretches though or the continuous heartburn or feeling heavy.  I love being able to see, snuggle, smell, and love on my baby!  Felix and I still look at her and think, "Wow, she's ours!"

as I wait

I used the time to make a plum streussel cake for my hubby.  He's been asking for a streussel cake (he doesn't ask for things often, so I wanted to make it for him), so yesterday as we went by the market, I told him to pick any fruit he wanted on top and I would make one.  So here we are ... I love streussel cakes!! 

Still waiting for baby ;) Friday I have another appointment at the hospital to check that everything is still ok.  I'm curious to see what they say ...
