Growth Spurt

So apparently little Mason had a growth spurt this week. I was able to fit in all my school shorts and t-shirts just last week. Yesterday, Mom and I had to go shopping for some bigger shorts. Not that the others didn't fit, they were just getting a little tight and I like my shorts/shirts a little loose when I'm teaching. Anyways, here is a picture of what I look like today....23 weeks and 1 day. According to my website thing, he is about 11-11.5 inches long and weighs a little more than a pound. I go for my monthly check-up Thursday. We'll see how much weight I have gained (hopefully a pound or so). Only 17 weeks left!

Mason's Nursery

YAY!! I love decorating!! I decided to get as much of the nursery done as possible before school starts because I knew my time and energy would be limited after that. Here is what we have so far.....not complete yet, but getting there!!

On July 31st we went to have our much awaited ultrasound. We had picked out names and nursery themes for both, just needed to find out if it was a girl or a boy????

San Francisco/Yosemite Trip

Andy and I went out to San Francisco to visit my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bob for a week. They were such great hosts! While we were there we went to Pier 39, drove around and got lost, walked the Golden Gate Bridge, went up to Muir Woods (redwood forest), and drove out to Yosemite National Park. While we were at Yosemite we did some hiking, saw a bear and a coyote! It was an awesome trip and we had a great time! Here are some pictures:
