I'm Back....Who Knows For How Long

It has been incredibly frustrating at our condo these past few weeks. We have been fighting with DirecTv and Comcast over getting our Internet set up. You would think that they don't want to provide us service or something.

We have had 3 technicians out and they keep pointing fingers saying the other company is causing the problem. We need to just get them here at the same time and duke it out! Mark hasn't been able to work from home and clearly I haven't been able to be on either. I had to come to a coffee shop while Eliza napped to be able to get this out.

I am almost 17 weeks pregnant...3 weeks away from being half way there! Unfortunately for me, the second half seems to be the tougher of the two. Thankfully I am no longer feeling sick, but my energy is still GONE. I went to my 15 week appointment and everything was good. I have gained half a pound since I got pregnant.  Dr didn't seem too concerned, but hopefully since my appetite is coming back I will start to get the nutrients I need for Bug. I started feeling the baby move and kick on the 11th, now it is constant. Mark is even able to feel it which is so fun!

Eliza had her dance recital, it was amazing. Watching her be so fearless to go up there in front of all of those people, it blew me away. I cried, OK I sobbed, the whole time. I couldn't have been any more proud of her. We couldn't take video or pictures so I will make sure to upload the video when we get it next month.

Condo living is definitely different, especially when you have been in a house for almost 7 years. It is a very nice condo and complex which we do enjoy. Mark takes Eliza swimming all of the time and we have a huge play structure that she has mastered. She has even made some friends!

We have made progress on the new house. The roof is done, windows and doors are in and the plumbing. The heat/ac guys and electricians are working right now. I was there on Friday picking out where I wanted the light fixtures and switches...never thought that would be stressful-but it was.

Such a weirdo, her favorite place...her new tub

We took Eliza to another fair. It was DEAD and she got to go on the rides as long as she wanted, the guys just let the ride keep going until she said stop. Her favorite by far was the bungee trampoline. She couldn't figure out how to jump herself so the woman just started launching her...she is still talking about how fun it was!

Our local orchard grew a great crop of strawberries this summer so Eliza and I ventured out to pick some. It was a blast. I picked, while she ate, and we grabbed 4lbs in less than 15 minutes. I think I might go back on my own to be able to get some for jam.

Well, my allotted time is up, time to head back home. I HOPE we will have internet back tomorrow as the technician is supposed to be coming back...again. If not, looks like I will be ordering a lot of frozen hot chocolates here at Biggby!!

I'll leave you with this gem...nothing better to her than her Prince Charming...

That bungee trampoline is AWESOME! Not sure if Easton would love it, or hate it. haha

When do we find out what the little bug is? Have you done any over-the-counter tests? ;)

@CourtneyI definitely was not sure if Eliza would like the bungee...she still talks about it though. The same lady will be at the Livonia Spree this week so I think we will take her back to go on it.

We will find out Mid July for little bug. No over the counter tests but all the wives tales are pointing to a little girl.
