I can't believe I'm almost 17 weeks pregnant! I have been trying to take pictures weekly to keep a belly book, and to send to John while he's gone. It's a little bit tricky, setting the timer & running to pose before the camera snaps. Haha...Owell, it'll be nice to look back on. As you can see I definitely have a baby bump. I scheduled my 20 week ultrasound right before Christmas, which will a great Christmas present to see baby G again. We had an ultrasound done at 9 weeks just to see how far along I was. The 20 week ultrasound is usually when you find out if the baby has outdoor or indoor plumbing (boy or girl), but John and I have decided we're not going to find out with this baby. We want it to be a SURPRISE! We've decided to decorate our nursery in Classic Winnie the Pooh. More of the nursery to come.
John is doing well in Afghanistan, and I thank you on behalf of both of us for all the prayers and support we have felt from friends & family. You have outpoured your love to both of us, and I cannot tell you the blessing that it has been. He's been there almost a month and he's working a lot, lifting a lot of weights, and playing a lot of ping pong. I think he'll come back and join the olympic team. Can you say...Forrest Gump?!
Love from NC & Afghanistan
