Baby Update

So we had a doctors appointment and everything is still good. The midwife was a little worried that Quinn was slightly too small so she had us do another ultrasound. It was really neat to see our little guy again. It was a bit harder than last time to see things since he is getting so big but was clear enough to tell that he has hair all over his little head :-) I am very excited about that. Turns out he is in the 45th percentile for weight/size so everything is OK. He currently weighs 3lbs 4oz and from the quick glimpse we got of his face he looks like a miniature of his father.
9 more weeks to go!

This Friday Peter got done with classes early so I claimed him for myself for the rest of the day. We decided to go hiking up Sleeping Giant since the fall weather is so beautiful and with all the changing colors we figured the views would be spectacular...they were!

Beautiful fall leaves, the colors were so vivid, this picture doesn't do it justice

Me trying to figure out the easiest way to the top :-)
On the way home we just had to pull over and
take this picture of the lake right next to the
law school. It was so beautiful!

29 weeks

Just less 11 more weeks to go until little Quinn is here. I try not to think about how much time is left because it seems like it will never come but I can't help myself, I am so excited! And scared, nervous and a whole mix of emotions. I am anxious to get the nursery finished but I need Peter's muscles so that will have to wait until Thanksgiving. Pregnancy is definitely different than I thought it would be but so amazing. I love feeling Quinn squirm and kick. If I gently poke my belly he will usually kick back and if I lay on my side he always scoots over so he is against the surface too and loves to kick it. He definitely already has a mind and spirit of his own. I am truly grateful that the Lord trusts us enough to be parents and that he was willing to entrust this little spirit to us.
