White Christmas

27 weeks pregnant

Life around here has been as busy as ever (story of everyone's life, right?) Chase and I are both enjoying our jobs, although we're still trying to get used to getting to work by 6:50 am with all of the surprise overnight snowstorms. Add 6 inches of freshly packed snow, an unplowed freeway, and the normal "Utah drivers" together and it makes for a big adventure getting to work most mornings...and a stressed out Leah.
Our baby boy is just as busy as ever in my growing belly. Watching my belly roll around as he moves never gets old for Chase and me. Chase loves to talk to my stomach and get a little kick in return. (Chase doesn't have to know that he is pretty much kicking all of the time whether we're talking to him or not)
It makes me so happy to see how excited Chase is about our future addition. We went to Target the other day to pick out some presents for friends who were expecting. Of course we couldn't help stopping at the baby boy section, and of course we couldn't resist picking out some cute outfits. We decided that we would each pick out one outfit. Needless to say, we ended up leaving with 8. 1 nighty picked out by me, and the other 7 outfits were chosen by Chase who just couldn't possibly narrow it down more than that. Any of you who know Chase wouldn't be surprised that every single one said something written on it like:

"Future quarterback" or "Sports Star-just like Daddy"

As of today I am 27 weeks, 3 days pregnant. I can't believe in 3 months he'll be due! The second trimester has completely flown by. I have been feeling great, thanks to my friends:
Tums (for heartburn)
the three pillows I sleep with at night, and
hand sanitizer that I carry around to keep sicky germs away.
I'm determined not to get sick during this crazy flu season.
and we might as well add ice cream to that list.
But lets face it, when has ice cream not been my best friend?

24 weeks. Kind of old I know, but its fun to see the contrast-if you can.
Can you believe Christmas is here in two weeks? WOW! Time is flying by. I think I need to savour the Christmas spirit a little more before it passes me by. Today in Relief Society our teacher challenged us to spend at least a few minutes a day pondering Christ and what Christmas really means. I can't think of a better way to get into the Christmas spirit.
