22 Weeks

22 weeks today! I’m fighting a cold and its zapping up all of my energy, but otherwise I couldn’t be better.

Little Eleanor weighs 1 whole pound now, which seems like such an accomplishment considering she started out as a tiny little poppy seed sized embryo. I’m constantly amazed when I think about how she once was nothing, then was a tiny speck of something, now is a healthy fetus that kicks and pokes, and soon will be a full fledged baby.

Last weekend Andrew and I took a walk around the lake that is just a few blocks away from our apartment and took some pictures. It's a really beautiful area and I walk its paths 5-6 days a week. The lake is home to lots of pretty birds like herons, egrets, cormorants, pelicans, coots, and tons of geese. There is a small amusement park called Children's Fairyland there along with several playgrounds. You can also rent all sorts of boats, everything from paddle boats to kayaks to gondolas, and take them out for a little cruise. It will be a really fun place to take the baby. The pictures are kind of small on this blog, but they can also be viewed on my Flickr page.
