24 weeks (and 2 days!)

YAY!! I can't believe how fast time is flying!! Our baby girl is growing like crazy and we are loving every minute of it! Every kick, every roll, every shake....makes our hearts melt even more for her. Here I am a little over 24 weeks (6 months) and I feel wonderful! My only side effects I've really have had are slight headaches (but they have kind of twindled away as more time goes by), some bloody noses and clogged noses. My clogged nose only really started happening this last week though. But overall I'm doing great. We moved to Pleasant Grove recently to be closer to work and really like our place. It's crazy to imagine that this is where we will bring Zealynn home. I always imagine what "that night" will be like. I still can't believe she'll be here before we know it! I've still been running and feel good doing it. I'm not doing it everyday, but when I do, I still feel good. we'll see how long I feel like it! :)

For those of you that don't know...her name is Zealynn Marie Todd. We wanted something different, but not too weird. Kev served his mission in New Zealand and I have always have had this fascination with it. One day we want to go visit it. We liked the "lynn" over the "land" and felt that she would have a part of Kev with her, but still have her "own name" rather then just being a country. :) Marie is my middle name...so she will always have a part of her and her daddy with her! (is that cheesy or what?) :) We love calling her by name and seeing my stomach move around when we call her by name.

I'm a little over 26 weeks now and I'm not sure if I have mentioned, but I really do love being pregnant and this opportunity of carrying not only my baby but My Love's child. It is really a blessing and I never want to take this opportunity for granted. I love feeling her little feet and bum and can't wait to look her in the eyes to tell her how much her Mommy and Daddy love her. We'll see you soon baby girl!

Yay! I knew you'd love being pregnant. It gets even better as time goes on and the delivery and when she's here! I think that's why people have so many kids . . .it's amazing :)

So happy you are enjoying pregnancy. I loved it!!! The last month gets a little worse, but that just makes you more ready to have that little bundle of joy. So, I'm planning on coming to your shower and am excited to see you.
