The Purpose

I guess the primary purpose for creating this blog was to document my pregnancy and the changes that occur in my life as a result. I know that my life is in for some serious changes, but I feel that I am finally ready for those changes. I have done everything I hoped to do before having children and now I am ready to be a mom. I am now 6 months pregnant and enjoying all the movement inside me. I been thinking about names since we found out that we were having a girl. I think that I have decided on a name, but I am not absoluely sure. I love old names, both Biblical and classical. Right now I am in the "nesting mode" as some call it. I would love to start creating a nusery, but until I hava actual room to decorate I will have to be content with my imagination.

Something I have loved since I was a child was wooden toys. Yesterday I ventured into my parents crawlspace to look and see what wooden toys still remained. I was delighted to see my old wooden bike, rocking horse, dollie craddle and my brothers train set. Wooden toys retain a particluar charm that plastic toys do not. I love this photo of my friend's baby chicks sitting near this wooden train.

Baby on the way!!!!

Well, for those of you that don't know, I am five months pregnant with a baby girl. Nathaniel and I are excited with this new development . We had decided to start trying for a baby when we got back from our trip around the world, but what we didn't expect was the fact that it would happen so quickly. In any case, our family of two will hopefully become three sometime around the middle March. I had planned to document this pregnancy more thoroughly and take pictures from my first month onward but I have been a bit negligent and perhaps a bit shy.
