18 Weeks Update

I guess it's time for another update! My mom and sisters have been begging me to post some more pictures, so here they are! As of this weekend, the baby has been growing for 18 weeks, and it seems to be getting bigger every morning when I wake up! At this point it's surprising how fast this pregnancy seems to be going. All of a sudden the nine months is almost half over!

Here's a close up shot of my growing belly!

I think this pregnancy has been going by so fast because Doug and I have been so busy lately... buying our first home! This past week we signed the final papers to purchase a condo in downtown Abbotsford. We've been thinking of doing this for quite a while now, but realizing that we have a baby coming finally made us act. At the end of this month we will be moving out of our cramped 1 bedroom suite, into a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom place that will be our own. It's going to be alot of work, especially since we are going to have to do quite a bit of renovations before we even move in, but we are both up to the challenge, and are excited about the possibilities. This weekend we spent 2 days helping Erik and Jamie paint and lay laminate in their suite, and it got us looking forward to doing work in our own place.

We didn't work the entire weekend however. Doug and I managed to take in a great hockey game in Vancouver last night. It was the Flames vs. the Canucks, and we were definitely outnumbered by Canucks fans. Luckily, our team won. It was a great game, and the Flames took the Canucks 3 to 2.

Doug managed to capture a few shots of the game. Let me mention, that I was the one to buy the tickets for him. They are not easy to get out here, but I managed to find some. It was well worth the price!
Here's the view from our seats.
Doug was quite excited to zoom in and get a shot of his favorite Calgary player.

Well, I think that's all the news I have for now!

Your belly is so cute and small. I think I really popped at around 22 or 23 weeks.
Congrats on buying your first home. Seems like you two have moved around a lot since you've been married. That's the story of our lives too. We like staying put for a bit now.
