WOW! 25 weeks!

The belly at 25 weeks!!

It feels like just yesterday that we found out we were pregnant! It is so hard to believe that 21 weeks ago we had no clue how much our lives would change! Now that we have less than 15 weeks until we meet our daughter, it is a mixture of emotions; impatience, anxiety, fear, love... I can't wait to meet her and spend the rest of my life with her, but at the same time I am scared to leave this life that I am so used to behind. Ah, the joys of growing up.

But thats enough sap right? On to the happenings of the week!

Its been a pretty typical week here at the Redburn household. Work, work, work, and a little bit of shopping in between. I had Monday off for MLK day and then went to work Tuesday to witness "history" on tv. Blah blah blah. That's how I feel about all that. Wednesday brought another day of work for me, a seven mile run for boy (he's doing so great keeping up with his running) and several trips to Target for clearance baby clothes. Sooner or later I need to put up some pictures of her loot from daddy! She is gonna love shopping with him one day. Thursday more work for me and boy started on Keira's floor. He didn't get much done with the lack of his wonderful pill that makes him productive, but he did do something. He wants to have it done by superbowl, so I guess he'll be pretty busy next week! He also bought little miss a VERY cute cream, pink, and brown dress that we hope to have her wear on her first birthday. It just needs to fit! Friday meant back to work for boy and the promise of a weekend for me! Now I plan on hiding in my house all weekend staying away from the cedar.

On to Keira! According to all of the books we are reading and the websites we check she should be about 1 1/2 pounds and 13 inches long. She has always been a little bit behind, but I think she has hit a growth spurt since I am feeling her kick more and more. Sometimes she can get very active! Stephen seems to calm her down though because everytime I have him try to feel her kick she stops! Only 2 more weeks until the third trimester begins!

As for school, things are going good. I am still at 19 kiddos and that number works great for me. I know that I will probably get more and thats ok! We are busy working on our reading levels, writing, and recognizing/writing our numbers. For boy, its been super stressful. Working for a small company can be very scary at times. Thankfully my boy knows how to bust his tail and do what needs to be done and his bosses recognize that. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that the economy does something soon!!

Well thats all for now. Hope you all had a great week and have a fantastic weekend!!
