Week 8, Our Weekend, and Some Great News!

I really do have other things I need to post about but barely have the energy to post about anything so this is all you get today.

I am now in Week 8 and that is amazing in itself but really there isn't much news to post about this week. Besides being just extremely tired I feel pretty good. T-Bone is now the size of a kidney bean or a little bigger than a dime. The nose, ears and a mouth are forming. His toes and fingers are also starting to grow also.

The Mister and I were doing really well getting up in the mornings and running before I got pregnant but now we have really been slacking. I need that extra 30 mins in the morning :-) So this weekend we decided to get our butts in gear and get some exercise. We have never been to Stone Mountain (this is a huge granite rock in Georgia that is now a a national park) so thought this would be a great place to go and the weather was beautiful. On Saturday we hiked all the way up the mountain. It was a mile one way - this may sound easy but this was a steep climb, a very steep climb. It was quite beautiful up on the top and the view of downtown Atlanta was amazing. Of course I did take my camera. We enjoyed ourselves so much we got an annual parking pass. Then Sunday came along and we decided we would go back to Stone Mountain and do one of the actual trails. The one trail we did was 3/4 of a mile and then we did part of a 5 mile trail also but not exactly sure how much of this one. Dusty and Dakota got to go on this trip with us! I did get some pictures on Sunday and will have to post those once I get them on the computer.

So we had a pretty good weekend and it was good that I got some exercise. I haven't gained any weight yet even though I can definitely see a difference in my stomach. My pants are also feeling tighter.

Okay one more thing - I guess I have decided to put everything in this post (keep having to add to the title) :-)

So in May I had to do an interview, application and essay to get accepted into the College of Education for my Early Childhood Education degree. Well on Thursday I got my Acceptance Letter!! It is such a huge relief and I am just so excited to start in August! It is going to be a busy two years for me but I am looking forward to all of it, well besides the tests I will have in my classes.

Okay that's all. And I promise to do my award post by the end of the week. I already know the first one ;-)

Are you going to post belly pictures so we can track how big you get?! Hehe :)

Are you guys hoping for a boy? You always refer to the baby as him.
