Bump Pics & Transitioning Home...

Well folks, I'm settling back into life here in Missouri... it's been an interesting transition so far! Don't get me wrong... I'm so very happy to be HOME! Home is just a little different than where I've been living for the last 2 years. The fact that I have to drive a pretty little distance to Starbucks, a trip to get any organic grocery store involves crossing the state line, and my parents called six cars at a four way stop on a country road, "traffic"... different. Staying with your parents after having run your own household for the last 2 years and the weather going from 90 degrees and 100% humidity last Saturday to 50 degrees this Saturday... different. It's just been a lot of change for this little Mama and at 33 weeks, change is very hard. I honestly believe that "home" is where ever I am with Bri. Cheesy, but true. When he gets here and we we're cuddled up on our couch... I'll feel "home" again.

I know life's new "normal" is going to continue to look differnt for a while especially in 7 weeks when our baby girl arrives! At least Lovebug will have a nursery! (I'm jumping up and down with excitement at the thought of this) I signed a lease on an apartment this week and my wonderful hubby will be here in 7 days with all of our stuff to move in and get settled! We'll be house hunting eventually, but we figure... baby steps is best right now. We just need to breathe for a bit.

I've just been trying to keep myself busy while Bri finishes up things in San Diego. Three weeks apart and and I miss him soo much... I'll be so relieved when he gets here! Then we'll be putting together all the pieces of the nursery! I can NOT wait to post pictures!

Until then... here's the Bump Update!
