Let it snow!

I've never been a cold kind of person.  In fact, suffice it to say I turn into a whiny baby when the temperature dips below 70.  But, this year, I am so excited.  Winter means I am mere moments away from the best thing that has ever happened to me.  And to think, this year started out with me planning to be an astronaut.  Sometimes I wonder how life's undulating road decides where to turn and when to remain straight.  However life goes, I am so thankful that mine has led me on the path of motherhood.

And on a path to a new camera and a husband willing to try his hand at it because I refuse to pay $200+ for maternity shots.  Not including the digital images, no less!

A new toy...

I got a new camera this week! And I couldn't be more excited.  These days, it's the first thing I have really thought of that isn't baby-related. All thanks to a great husband and a fabulous birthday this year.  It's the Nikon D3200, a decision we only made after consulting our favorite camera guru Catherine.

It is absolutely ludicrous to my shrinking brain that I am already 36 weeks along.  Baby is thus far healthy and growing right on target.  In true M-stream-of-conciousness, I recall saying many times in the doctor's office, "Gosh.  I have never been so happy to hear my baby is average."  Average is good.  Average is the majority of babies.  And the majority are healthy and happy.
