on a lighter note

Amanda (otherwise known as "MyFriendAmanda" or "My Roommate in Auburn") will be in town next week. The following week, Elizabeth is going to stay a few days in Slap-out. Two weeks after that, Mikkee is (hopefully) coming to town. Yay for my friends!

Brian has picked up a phrase that is so uncharacteristically Southern, every time he says it I start giggling. The exact spelling is "oooh-weee." As best as I can tell, it appears to be some form of expletive. As in, "Oooh-wee, it's hot out here."

AND - we have a place to live! We'll be moving into an apartment in the Cloverdale area (in MONTGOMERY) sometime in the next few weeks. It's a supercooldeluxe apartment, complete with huge bedrooms and a tiny little fenced-in area for my pup to pee without me having to take an infant outside (in the cold) several times a day. Yay for supercooldeluxe cheap apartments!

I go to the doctor today. Hopefully we'll make an appointment for the ultrasound, and within a few weeks we'll know the sex of the baby. I'm so excited ... I don't know how, given the choice, people can actually wait until the baby gets here to find out. Isn't having a BABY enough of a surprise? For those who are interested or keeping count, I'm 18 weeks pregnant now. Yay for ultrasounds!
