21 weeks and kicking

I have always wondered what it would be like to feel a baby move inside of you...well I have recently realized that it feels like...something moving inside of you! WEIRD! Emily has been very active in the past 2 weeks, and has seemed to develop a routine of when she decides to stretch her little arms and legs. Usually right after I eat lunch, and around dinner time is when I begin to feel rolls, turns, hiccups and kicks. She especially moves anytime after I eat fruit or drink orange juice. Todd was able to feel her kicking on Sunday evening! It was pretty exciting for him! We have her room completely painted and this weekend are putting the white chair rail up in the room. I can't wait to move everything back in there and begin organizing and decorating. :)
My work/church is throwing me a baby shower on March 24! And friends are blessing me with more showers! I can not wait:)
Sleep is one thing I can not get enough of and I am thankful that I have been able to sleep through the night better. I usually go to bed at 10pm and wake up around 8:30, I definitely get a full nights sleep! We recently got some wonderful news with Todd's job, he got a much deserved raise! It could not have come at a better time and we feel very very blessed, as we know there are many people who are getting laid off and can not find any work at this time.
Work is getting busier for me, but I have learned to leave it all at work when I leave.:) Auction planning time is beginning and this year I won't be playing as active a roll as I did last year. Since I will be leaving the school in April right before the Visions auction, I won't be around as much. I think this is a blessing in disguise...:) shhhhh!!!
I will be posting pictures of the nursery once it is complete! Can't wait!

Emily sounds like an athlete...maybe a golfer like her dad or a basketball player like her mom?
