i had no idea...

so it has come to my attention that people actually READ this blog, which makes me think it might need a little more content.
A. and i were doing a lot of cleaning this weekend. we are trying to get rid of stuff, consolidate, maybe have a stoop sale...
one of the things we have a lot of is books! lots of books! there are "bedroom" books and "living room" books, and when we moved in to the apartment two years ago, we just threw all of the books on shelves and kept promising ourselves we'd organize them someday. on saturday, we figured we'd at least try to put books from the same series together, and take a serious look at what we've got duplicates of so that we could get rid of some.
we did the bedroom first, collecting the bedroom harry potters to move into the living room; same with the series of unfortunate events, which got split up as well.
"wouldn't it make sense" we thought "to put children's books on the lower shelves?" and some rearranging began. it was only as i was holding two handsful of paperbacks that i realized that I WAS MESSING WITH THE BABY BUMP SHELF! i put all of the books back EXACTLY as i had taken them out, and the batman book never actually got touched in this situation.
so even if i'm not updating you super frequently, i am always thinking of you. the shelves above and below may look slightly different, but that batman book has not been moved. i'm still sticking with week 25 or so before i get there.
we shall see!

not THOSE bubbles


we went to the babydoc last night, and got to hear baby z's heartbeat, which is just the coolest thing ever. as it turns out, what i thought was the baby moving around was probably gas. that's fine. the baby is growing well, everything is chugging along as it should be, and A. and i are thrilled with the entire process.
i am in love with my new full body pregnancy pillow - it has made my hip pain completely disappear. plus, i used it to prop myself up while reading in bed last night. i will be using it long past pregnancy, i'm sure.

i don't want to alarm anyone, but it feels like there are little bubbles rising up in my insides, and i think i MIGHT be feeling the baby.
let's all remain calm, shall we?
