The days fly by....

WOW! The weeks just keep going by so quickly! I can't believe I'm 23 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) and our house is going to be FINISHED by the end of next week!! I guess I'd rather have it all fly past than creep along slowly...

Something I learned this week: pregnancy apparently makes sunscreen useless. I went in the sun for an hour of the afternoon, with 45 SPF WATERPROOF (thanks, Sarah Hall) sunscreen on and got a pretty bad sunburn on my chest and thighs... ugh. I was so concerned about not letting my body temperature get too high... oh well. Avery has started kicking me in the ribs this week when I am sitting down. I am one of those short-bodied, long-legged/armed people and apparently she has already run out of stretching space. It's going to be a long 17 weeks until she has all the space she needs... :)

We're heading to St. Louis this weekend for our last OB-GYN visit there. It's always fun to spend time with our friends- the Pandukus. Did I mention they have 4 boys? And that we all crowd into their apartment for the weekend? Fun times :)

Oh! It's free giveaway Friday on Allison's blog again! This week's giveaway is a painting by Kelly Smith (Allison's sister, and my friend from OBU) who is also going to be painting Avery's nursery for us! Here's a picture:
Head on over to her blog for a chance to win!
