Dear Baby ...
I felt you move for the first time on Thanksgiving morning! Oh my, what a wonderful feeling!
Feeling much less nausea these days! Just a little when I take my prenatal vitamin and sometimes around suppertime.
Keeping to home as much as possible - a quiet schedule helps my energy level!
Earlybird has noticed Mama's belly, but when he asked "What's wrong with your belly?" and I answered, "Well, it's getting kind of big, isn't it?" he simply shrugged and said, "Yeah, wow!" Nothing else, lol.

Happy Tuesday, my friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I apologize I am so behind on comment replies ... I will be catching up over the next few days. (I always seem to think I have much more time (and energy) than I actually do!) I truly appreciate the time and thought you put into your messages. :)
Well, have yourselves a good day ... I will see you here again very soon!
