21 weeks



Quick baby Otter update! My little one is sailing around, doing flips, and regularly thumping me in excitement--usually when I sit down, go to sleep or when the car stops. This movement has helped, greatly--I'm not just a huge belly who can't see her toes, I'm a momma with a baby growing who can't see her toes. I'm slowly progressing out of the "perpetually green around the edges" phase, though by the time it hits 7PM I'm thinking bed sounds like the most delicious thing in the world. We find out if it's a girl or boy next week Wednesday--I'll keep you posted!

PS I finished my first crochet lesson and I'm now hooking together yummy Granny Squares--I'll try and take pictures soon. Hurray!

You are stunning-really glowing. Such a cute baby bubble you have there. Granny squares! I have been trying to learn those forever! I just can't seem to master them. One of the blogs I sent you had the most amazing colored granny squares {some time ago}. Did you see those? Can't wait to hear about baby Otter.
