Halfway There!!!

As of Monday I am officially halfway through my pregnancy journey! We are so excited and gearing up for the birth of this precious little miracle. The baby is moving a lot these days, kicking and dancing(mostly on my bladder). I have had a good amount of energy and am trying to stay active and busy. I feel so blessed to not have been sick with all the yucky viruses going around right now. Our family, thank the Lord, has not been affected by it. I pray that this good fortune continues.
I feel like I have been going through the nesting stage a little early, or maybe it is the spring cleaning bug....? Every day I find something that needs cleaning or re-organizing. I have never been much of a "germ freak", but lately I am much more aware of germs and wanting to sanitize everything. I was not like this with Jacob but they do say each pregnancy is different. I definitely have different tastes with this little one- I mostly want fruit, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries....this is great because these are all so very healthy. With Jacob I wanted salty foods, and red meat(I am not much of a red meat eater).
Jacob asks me everyday, "where is my baby?". I lovingly place his hand on my belly and tell him that his baby is in my tummy and growing. He loves to lean over and tell the baby he loves her/him. He is already such a sweet and loving big brother. He also likes to smell my tummy and say, "mmmm, smells like baby." This makes me laugh, I love his imagination.
My belly is growing and I have been doing my best to take photos every week. I promise to post these photos as soon as I can get them off my camera(I do not have a USB cord so this make it a little difficult).
I do hope you all have been having a wonderful week so far!
PS: I am currently doing online birth classes with a lovely lady named Kristen Burgess. Her website is naturalbirthandbabycare.com, this is a wonderful site with tons of helpful info. She is expecting their 7th child and has done at home, natural births with her 6 previous babies. I am learning so much and it makes me even more excited about our choice to have our baby at home in the water.
