All that to say, my mood lately has matched the weather even though there's really no reason to be down. A few things I should be thankful for:
-We just had family in town for Easter weekend which definitely made me happier. (And my maternity wardrobe got a serious upgrade thanks to my mom and mother-in-law, so I now have more than one pair of jeans to get me through this never-ending winter.)
-Deric and I have started geocaching, which is a fun and (most importantly) free way to spend time outside. Never heard of it? Look it up in your area; there are millions of geocaches worldwide. Its like a global treasure hunt!
-Our house is filled to the gills already with baby stuff and we've still got a shower to look forward to. We have incredibly generous friends and family.
-An ultrasound yesterday had our doctor telling us everything looks perfect. Baby boy (yes, still unnamed) is growing like a weed, in the 54% for weight. I'm okay with that as long as he doesn't put on too many pounds before delivery ;) The only bummer is that he decided to nap during the ultrasound with his face buried, so a very blurry side shot is all we walked away with. But seeing this little face--and knowing we'll see him in person in about nine weeks-- really cheers me up!
