This weekend happily broke that streak as we celebrated with our friends Matt and Jessica. It was a wonderful weekend and a beautiful wedding. Refreshingly good times with friends from far away, too. Our house was full...and we had a blast.
Can't wait for the other upcoming weddings this year...here are a few pics from the wedding...
Gary, The Happiest Man Alive, Josh
The NEXT happy couple! Less than a month to go!
(Gary told me he didn't want to be documented in this attire - see following post - but it's been so long since we've had a picture of us, I couldn't pass up the opportunity!)

Even though I'm technically 18 weeks, this picture was taken at 17 weeks, so I thought I should title this post accordingly. I also should note that I do not feel like this is a very accurate picture. The shirt that I'm wearing is a little baggy, and I think the bump looks a little more prominent than it really is. Just needed to give that disclaimer...there are some things I wear that it's still hard to tell there's anything there!
Second trimester has been amazing for me so far. I love that I can't suck my stomach in anymore, that I'm more comfortable in maternity pants and dresses (this excludes sweatpants, of course), the random bumps and nudges I can feel from the baby (this is REALLY the best), and of course, having a bit more energy and appetite.
Only 3 more weeks until we find out the gender...both of us can hardly WAIT! What a wonderful season of anticipation.

a baby?! I love it!
I really should have taken a new picture of him in his current
position on the rocker...his floppy, spindly little arms and legs seem
to find the funniest positions!
I love that all of the other kiddos will be toting around bears and
bunnies and dolls and here comes our kid - with Grinch in tow!
I couldn't have picked it better myself...thanks, Muggs!
Oh, and in case you can't tell in the picture, he also ironically
matches the walls of the nursery. :)

Yesterday I was riding the train home quite late and as I was mid-bite into my McChicken Sandwich it occurred to me that this was my second time having McDonald's this week. It should be noted that until the past few months (with the introduction of Baby in my belly who craves a hearty mid-afternoon snack), I had maybe eaten McDonald's once or twice in the past 10 years. Yes, quite a lot has changed. Thankfully, being pregnant erases much guilt that comes along with food cravings and binges, so I enjoyed every last crumb of my sandwich and fries. :)
Speaking of babies and bellies, below is a "belly shot" (for those of you who have requested). It's from a couple of weeks ago - say 12/13 weeks along...as you can see, you can't really see too much. I plan to take the next pics around week 16, so hopefully there will be a little more evidence of Baby A (or at least the McDonalds!!) :)
Overall, I'm loving second trimester. It is a very refreshing change.
