Change in Due Date

Just received official word that my due date is February 25th. Check out these pictures and you'd probably agree that I MIGHT not make it until March! With this change, it makes me almost 31 weeks pregnant with only 9 weeks to go.
Anyway, the baby is doing well. Last weekend, I saw some pretty large movements from Jelly Belly "Peanut" Stewart! Unfortunately, I'm having some issues now with heartburn, acid reflux, and sleeping. Oh well, I guess it all goes with the territory. Hopefully, a few simple alterations in eating habits and my long, restful Christmas weekend off will help.

It's unbelievable that we're going to be parents soon. Fortunately, we don't go out and party (I gave that up years ago). We rarely make it to the movies (we hook up with the "movie man" instead). We hardly see our friends (ya'll know we still love you!). So, I think we've got a good start on having the typical family life with baby...having no life!!! Yes, we'll make sure a date night is scheduled at least once a month. Our theory is that you have to take care of yourself and the relationship first to have a well adjusted child. Most importantly, do not take things so seriously...sit back and find the humor in it. Laughing together makes life so much easier to deal with!
Merry Christmas!!!

Congrats, April & Aaron!!! Children are a joy and also a lot of work. Be sure to take lots of photos and video; my "baby" will be 5 in 3 weeks and I wonder just where all the time went. The kids also enjoy looking back at photos from when they were babies.

A Feb. Pisces is even better than a March Pisces. I'm so excited!

WOW!!! Imagine my surprise to see your due date moved up! I have to agree, I don't think you would have made it to March. See you all soon. LC
