Umm ... Life =) We've been sticking close to home the last few weeks mainly to get some work done. Christopher has been working on his learning goals and curriculum for the fall and so far he thinks he will like teaching even though he technically hasn't taught yet. Details, details ... He's also been working at a farm once a week with our friend to earn our weekly CSA box. They come home dirty but satisfied every day and they both really seem to enjoy the farm work. He's also been making some yummy meals this week and keeping the kitchen clean. =) I've mainly been working and trying to keep up with the household things. I think I have "summer fever" as the result of not taking any summer vacation while saving up for maternity leave. We'll be up north the next two weekends and I think that will help. I keep reminding myself that it will be worth it when I'm actually getting paid in the fall.

Baby B. We had another ultrasound today and baby looks great. The heart arrhythmia is gone and baby had a nice regular rhythm. Perhaps baby just grew out of it or maybe it's because I haven't had A DROP of caffeine in about a month. The doctor still says nothing until baby is born and while it hasn't been a huge deal, it does make the 3am - 4am part of my night shifts difficult. Baby is super active and all the measurements check out right where they should be. We are going to birthing classes, organizing the baby's room and have decided upon names. By all accounts, we are ready for baby to join us outside of the womb, in about two months that is.

We've decided to cloth diaper and I've been doing research and working on acquiring said diapers. I wont say much about them now since we haven't used them yet but I'm excited to use a couple of different kinds (I think one system would be boring) and seeing what works well for us.
On a some what related note, some of our friends, who are also pregnant, found out recently that their baby girl has some serious health issues. Our heart breaks for them as we pray for God's will along with His peace and healing. That baby girl is loved and we know that God holds her tightly.
