Oh and...

We've already found out (through a blood test that analyzes trace amounts of the baby's DNA found in my blood and that wasn't offered during my other pregnancies, my how much has changed in a few short years) that we're having a girl this time!

Project 52: Week 34

Week 34:  5 minutes in the backyard I'm trying to get back into my usual photography routines now that I'm kind of feeling better (although I felt terrible for most of yesterday).  I took a few shots while I was in the backyard getting the dog back inside.  I kind of wish we had more flowers to take pictures of, but I try and make the best of what we do have.
