We're having a Cashew!!!! least that is what we are calling the new little life due to to arrive in our (and your) life on February 3rd, 2007. The moniker is catching on and as as we debate names, it is becoming clear that "Cash" is not just catching on for now. This poor little guy/girl may very well be called Cash for a long time coming.

In all seriousness, Steve and I could not be more excited about this new part of our life together. I find that I drive more carefully, avoid jaywalking, and debate in my head whether I need that cookie, that scoop of ice cream, or any other deliciously empty-caloried snack. Steve is doing his part to keep me motivated to exercise (moderately of course) and being a great support system. Who else could deal with their spouse's eyes drooping each night at nine o'clock?

People seem to want to know how I am feeling. Overall, I have no complaints. I have been somewhat fatigued, but have not had any morning sickness and I hope that continues. I have gained between 1.5 and 2 pounds thus far, but my body is already changing a bit to accomodate Cash, who at this point is about the size of a lime. My mother did not really and truly "show" until about 6 months, so I am crossing my fingers for the same to be true of me.

This weekend we were at Humarock to celebrate Steve's Grandfather's 90th birthday. It was a great day, despite one powerful downpour, and the guest of honor seemed to have really enjoyed himself. Here are some photos from the day courtesy of Kiki.
