Highlights this week:
*Spending time with my guys in Rhinebeck, driving through the country, looking at the leaves, petting sheep at the Sheep and Wool Festival, eating yummy food, fiber shopping.
*Watching Seamus discover his love of honey, and the next day laughing at him pretending to be a honeybee for hours with a long straw for a honeybee tongue.
*Marveling over something S said: I haven't seen the whole world yet; everything is new to me.
*Dreaming more amazing baby dreams, including one in which I gave birth to a dark-haired, blue-eyed baby girl with chubby cheeks.
*Feeling baby move more and more and feeling the shape of a little foot, small as a stone, by my belly button.
*Having a helpful husband who will ask me to rest while he loads the dishwasher and does the laundry even after working an extra-long shift.
*Having a husband who will drive our family all over New Jersey and New York for my errands and whims with minimal complaint. Oh, how I love that husband of mine!
*Starting to write more.
*More minor pregnancy discomforts: variose veins spreading (so far it's just the right side of my body), the usual hip achiness, heartburn and so on.
*Still measuring small for dates, but week 32 brings good news about this.
T took these photos of me at the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival on Sunday.
