Holy Leg Cramp

I can't believe that this week I will be starting my 6th month of pregnancy with our little Emily. On Tuesday I will have my 24 week check up with my Doctor. Todd has done a great job on painting the nursery, it turned out just how we wanted it too:) We got new crib, and ordered our bedding and are beginning to set everything up, and DECORATE!:) My favorite part :) Hard to believe in that in 16 weeks the finishing touch of our little girl will be added to the room!
I have been feeling really well! I am beginning to get a little uncomfortable, as my stomach has really been growing! And sleep has really been an issue, I wake up 4-5 times a night to go to the bathroom, and then sleep very lightly in between. I know God is preparing me for those late nights, and every time I get up and stumble to the bathroom, I remind myself that this is a blessing:) Another late night occurrence has been leg cramps! I have tried eating a banana in the day to keep them away, but they still come, and they are HORRIBLE!!! I used to get them when I was little, but I forgot how much they hurt! I wake poor Todd up every time I get one so he can massage it out for me, (poor guy).
Emily is still moving a lot throughout the day, and I have seen her make my stomach move several times. Pretty cool!! It is funny the different comments that I have gotten on my appearance, some people have commented on how big my tummy is, others say I still look really small. :) Everyone is different, and probably relates it to how they looked when they were pregnant. All I know is we are all healthy and happy and ready for our little girl to get here!

WE are looking forward to the day we get to hold Emily. Right now she's as snug as a bug and her Mom is taking very good care of her.
What a special time for yo both.
We love you both,
Grandpa and Grandma Stone

Christi and Todd,
I am excited to hear the doctor appointment went very well today. The doctor confirmed what we have seen, Emily is growing!! It has been so fun watching the two of you, along with a reluctant Cloe, in preparing for Emily. Her room is almost ready!
We love you all!
