Monday snapshot...

The past weekend we spread some Christmas cheer with some good friends when the kids exchanged presents. James scored a Tonka truck with matching hard hat, shovel, rake and mining pan.

So my Monday snapshot is of James showing off his new hard hat!

24 weeks...

A little update on Trout's progress.

How far along: 24 weeks, 5 days

Total weight change: Four kilos (approx. 8.8 pounds)

Maternity clothes: I need to get some more singlets and shorts. It has reached 34 degrees Celsius (93 f) here over the past week and the summer is just starting. Let's just say the air conditioning is going to get a workout over the next few months.

Stretch Marks: None yet.

Movement: Feeling a lot more movement over the past few weeks, even BJ has felt a few kicks which he was excited about.

This week we had just put James to bed and BJ and I were talking about how much we love him and BJ said that he couldn't imagine loving someone else as much as he loves James. I'm sure as soon as we see Trout our love will double and there will more than enough for both of our kids!!

I'm still keeping up the pregnancy photos and here is my latest one at twenty four weeks, five days.

Monday Snapshot...

Over the weekend I put up the Christmas Tree during one of James' naps (while BJ supervised). I originally wasn't going to because I was worried about James pulling on the tree and it falling on top of him. Paranoid much?!?!

But BJ talked me into it so we placed it on a small table with his toy box at the base as a bit of a buffer. Once James woke up he put the finishing touch on it.

Here is James (with the help of BJ) putting the star on top of the tree!

And I shouldn't have worried about him pulling the tree down, for the time being he's happy to point and smile at the tree, and other Christmas ornaments I have around the house. So adorable!
