Halfway Point

When did this happen? Did I go to sleep and wake up 20 weeks later? I can't believe I am halfway through my pregnancy. I also can't believe it has taken me this long to feel like I have some kind of routine back in my life. To say that the last 20 weeks of my life have been chaotic is an overstatement, but things have felt a little out of control. It's been harder to adjust to being back in Miami than I even imagined. The demands on me now are different than they were four years ago and I have found myself trying to assert and preserve the independence I had in Boston. Sure, this involved me getting upset with Alex and feeling like I was lecturing him on the importance of our family unit, but at least I feel like I have a little more clarity, more voice in how I want my Miami life to be. So now I feel like the routine is back or at least the beginning of a routine is back. And this is extremely important to me because in 20 weeks time we are going to have to adjust again and get a new routine set in place.

The belly this week.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
