This week I started my online class for Biology 101. Week one has actually gone much smoother than I was expecting - I guess because the ominous biology course has been dreaded and avoided by myself for, well, years now because of it's loving reputation for intensity and impossibility of feeling like a successful college student throughout the entire course. So I decided it was time to knock it out, especially before my Little Man arrives and my hands are full in a different way. I have been taking two classes per 8 weeks since shortly after Chris and I got married, but having a baby in my body and all the unexpected hic-cups and interruptions that come with being pregnant and working on my feet part-time plus not doing school or work on the Sabbath, I decided to cut back to one course instead of two this current 8 week "semester". So far it's been so delightful to not have to be thinking about school at every break and every spare minute that I have. I realized today that these "Sabbath dates" with the Lord that I can now have, and the baby books that I can read before Baby Boy Bean arrives will be cherished times before I embark on being a momma full-time in just about three months...
I haven't gotten the pictures up yet, but we had the pleasure of meeting my very dearest friend, Sarah's baby girl, Eden Renee, for the very first time.
mini trip to the past:
her wedding, 8.1.09
here she as my moh, and five lovely months pregnant
this past summer
at three months old she is so sweet,
i could eat her up!!
[look at those cheeks!!]
when i was holding her, baby boy in my belly kicked her a bit.
that might explain her expression here...
i promise, they will be friends.
he couldn't get enough of her either!
she was so cute talking to him while we got our pampering done...
she fell asleep while he was holding her, and he started dozing off, too.
WISHED i had a camera...
