boy or girl?

It's finally here.
Tomorrow morning at 8:00 we have an ultrasound apt. to find out if 
this little bitty bundle is a 
boy or a girl
and I just don't think either of us will sleep we're so excited to find out!
I say all the time, 
"This is going to change our lives forever"
and Jonny's like, "Uh ya, we're having a baby!"
but tomorrow we'll know forever if our first child is a 
 girl or a boy
That's sort of wonderful to try to wrap my head around.

Lots of people ask if I have any intuition as to whether its a
boy or a girl
and I have absolutely no idea. 
(That's why we're so excited about tomorrow)
And most of all we are thankful that the Lord would give us such a good gift.
We don't deserve any of his blessings and yet,  
he continually pours them out on us.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

my quotable husband.

Just so you know, as I write there's beef stew on the stove. 
This beef stew smells amazing, and the aroma is filling the whole apartment.
 I kinda feel bad I'm the only one who's experiencing it right now.

But I'll get to the point of this post now,

I want to take some time to share some of the funny things Jonny has said lately. 
I don't want to forget these quotes,  so I figure if I put them on the interweb, 
I can be reminded of them every now-and-again, 
and smile almost as big as I did the first time I heard them.

Quote #1
If you know Jonny, you know he likes cookies, right?
Well, I haven't made him cookies in a good while.
(**Today I did make 9 dozen chocolate chip cookies but they were for my students...not Jonny.)

However, the other day I had made some chocolate popcorn, and he quickly finished an entire (BIG) bowl! 
To this he said, 
"I like treats, so make me treats, but with treats...treat me like a dog. Just portion some to me in a bowl everyday but keep the rest in a secret place."

No joke.
So since then I've been trying to hide "treats"
but he found some in the in the dishwasher that we never use, I need to find a better spot.

Quote #2
On Monday nights Jonny makes dinner because we have to leave for 
a class we're taking 15 minutes after I get home from work.
This past Monday night, the meal was particularly bland.

As we noticed it's blandness Jonny blurted out, 
"Over the next 50 years while I'm trying to master Hebrew, will you master the spice cabinet and know to add a bit of this, and a bit of that so that I can have a party on my tongue every night!?"

How can I say "no" when he words it like that?
I married a man who makes me laugh all the time. 
Even when he doesn't mean to.
Like today, when I received this text message.
Totally thought he was talking about a family called the Walker's.
But no...

He makes me smile.

And I just realized this post reminds me of this one.

busy getting bigger.

So the month of September came and went, 
It's already the middle of October now, 
things get pretty around here in the fall.
These are the trees that line a nearby street.
Even though Fall is beautiful, I did listen to Christmas music today...don't judge. 
(***I have the the best husband who knows how to get me smiling, 
and sends me links to recommended Christmas cd's on Amazon.)
We are currently negotiating a date to put up the Christmas tree.

I have so much more energy now than I did during the first trimester.
We've been waiting for this to happen.
And by "we" I mean Jonny. 
The poor guy probably thought I was never going to bake or clean again.
Pretty much every morning now I say to him,
"I'm definitely bigger than yesterday."
To which he raises his eyebrows in agreement.

My next appointment is Monday, pretty sure I will finally be over my pre-pregnancy weight.
At the first two appointments I weighed under my weight, 
I've always weighed the same, since like age 15.
Then I dropped in early pregnancy, 
because. I. hated. food.
But these days I'm embracing change in the belly region,
(and I'm hungry all the time).
