I have a lot of smaller thoughts running through my mind, some of which keep me up too late or wake me up at 4am over. And really, they’re mostly just inconsequential items.
Firstly, there are a number of photos I want to share, since apparently the camera has made more of a debut in the past week or so than most weeks.
Two pinholes in tinfoil on the evening of the eclipse gave us pictures of the sun with a crescent in it from the moon crossing it. I don’t really think Spencer understood, but we can say he witnessed it.
In other news, Confirmations at our parish take place this week, so Andy’s been running around like crazy and spending many hours working on things. The first time’s always the worst in prep. Next year will be much easier in the planning process for him. It has, however, meant that he’s hardly home evenings anymore until this is over with. It’s been a bit rough on Spencer (and me). Just tonight he kept asking ‘Where Daddy?’ And when we prayed for Andy and his work tonight during prayers, he started tearing up. We’ll both be glad when we can have our man back with us more evenings.
I finished reading ‘The 5 Love Languages’ by Gary Chapman. I found it really helpful. Online he has an assessment questionnaire to help you figure out which love language resonates with you. Mine is definitely quality time. Which is also a reason that not having Andy around lately has been rough. I’m thankful for the book; in looking at a number of marriages of people I know (even distantly), I see how this book could really help to build up the bond between the couple. Andy’s still reading it (I got ahead of him by finishing it), so it’s also going to provide good fuel for us to talk about and see how we can serve each other better. I like how the book emphasizes that relationships are about serving each other. That really resonates with me.
I’m halfway through the pregnancy! I’m stunned at how quickly it’s going by, but it’s also very exciting. Four and a half months left. It’s a little daunting, but I’m very much looking forward to meeting this babe.If you missed it on facebook, here’s a photo of my ultrasound last week:
Hope your week’s started off on the right foot!
