It's hard to believe that I'm six months pregnant! It some ways, six months have flown by. But then I remind myself that it's basically half a year. I have yet another sinus infection. I feel like at least one of us has been sick since 2013 began. We always have someone who is ill!

I'm praying for this baby's safe development and arrival. Also praying that he and Willow will be great friends for their whole lives.

Adam's mom will be here next week, and the following weekend is the play performances. Nesting is still underway. Today I finished washing and ironing our couch cushions, cleaned out the oven and the microwave, and tomorrow I'm going to spot clean the carpet again. I have to do this literally every m
