24 Weeks

I am 24 weeks pregnant? Really? The 1st trimester was s...o...o...o long and now the 2nd trimester is going by a bit too quickly for me : ) My appointment went well last week. All very straightforward. Cravings? still coffee! So VERY strange as I couldn't even stand the taste of the stuff when I was pregnant with the other four. My late night bowl of cereal seems to still be a must too.

I continue to nest like crazy. This wonderful weather we have been experiencing in the Houston area has been such a treat. I cannot think of the last time we were able to sleep at night with the windows open in May!

We have the garden planted, I have 2 closets gutted and cleaned out, I have gone through all the hand-me-down clothes and got "real" about what to keep, and I started sewing PookieBear's new dress. Though, I have not made the kind of progress she would like to see. She wants to wear it, now!

I found a great gentleman's chest for D-man off Craigs*ist. It looks great in his room. Iy was a needed perk for him as he went on a 3rd antibiotic this week and it has been rough on him. However, because it has been hard on him, we know that more Lyme bacteria is being zapped. He also started 2 online summer school courses this week and he is looking forward to the classes.

I do have pictures to post, but I am going to need to employ a child to upload them all for me off the 2 cameras and my phone so I can share them soon! Well, off to grade some papers and finish that dress for PookieBear!


  1. Great news Shannon! Happy 24 weeks!

  2. I had cereal cravings too! Crazy. ; )

  3. Yes, late night cereal is definitely a must for me. Although, in the past week or so I am beginning to not have room for it! My hunger has definitely weaned with Keller taking up so much room : )

  4. Glad you're doing well! We're having some nice, cool weather these days, too.

  5. Congrats on 24wks!!! I had to laugh when I read this post as I also love coffee (although I always have so nothing new for me there) and I also must have a bowl of cereal before bed...too funny!

  6. So glad to hear things are going well. D-man is in my prayers and of course you and mud-puppy. (Is that the right nickname?) :) The coffee craving is totally weird.

  7. Can't wait to see the pics, Shannon! Post pics of the dress, too! ;)
