Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @<br />lowercase letters

1. Linking to Facebook
I took down the automatic link that I had on Facebook that always showed when I posted a new blog post, thinking it gave me some semblance of privacy....while I will be posting it again. Several of my non-blogspot using friends commented that they couldn't find my blog anymore, so I'll put it back up there sometime this week. blog isn't private, so I am not sure what I was thinking.

2. Sleep
In desperation I asked my 3rd year resident doctor (not the ob/gyn) to please find something I could take for sleep while pregnant and he did find something. Though I am pleasantly surprised to not need it after all. Several pillows and regular tylenol have me sleeping well enough to be acceptable and not too grouchy.

3. Nursery
It's coming along. The furniture finally arrived and Avery put it together.

4. Surreal
Pregnancy, my own baby shower and all that jazz is still surreal sometimes. I feel guilty about my baby shower. It is almost uncomfortable to me. I wish infertility didn't exist, so everyone who wanted a baby could have one without such a fight.

5. Baby Name
He still doesn't have one. We want to use a biblical name, but are torn on which one we agree on.

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @<br />lowercase letters

1. Fence Sign
My husband's submarine has always been called "God's Boat." I don't have the foggiest idea where this nickname came from. Regardless, we take the name seriously, so of course our fence sign has to be one of the biggest. This took 4 hours to put up and no I admittedly was not there the whole time. Today we took the sign down and that took about 1 hour. I think I like take down better!

2. Together Again
Blogger is letting me put pictures up again (maybe that Firefox update that I'd be ignoring was the trick?), so here's a picture of us from Friday's Homecoming. Forgive how awful we look. I was sick at this point and Avery had just come off a submarine. Enough Said.

3. Our Little Guy!
Looking straight at the camera during his 24 week check-up. I celebrated 25 weeks on Saturday and Avery will get to come with me to see him again at our 27 week appointment. Oh and we are hard at work on the name. He should have a name that we can announce in the next few days.
4. Candy Corn Fudge
I found a recipe for it in All You Magazine. It's basically fudge with candy corn in it. I think I'll be making a trial batch soon. Just because candy corn & fudge=win win, right? I think so.

5. Nook Color
It was a birthday gift and is my new favorite piece of technology. Thanks, Mom!

Happy Homecoming!

Avery arrived home from Westpac yesterday afternoon. I am so happy to have him home. It was a very emotional day for me. I admit it, I sobbed when he came off that boat. I was so relieved to see him. This deployment was a hard one for us. Obviously, pregnancy compounded by the fact that I wasn't working this time, made it seem very long. We did it though.

I just want to thank all of those people that helped me get through this deployment. I can't thank you enough for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers. It means a lot to have so much support.

Onto the next chapter- our baby being born and SHORE DUTY!
