Precious memories of Grandma

February came and went! It was a very fast month and we ended the month by making an unexpect trip to NY!
On Feb. 22 Grandma, (Mike's maternal grandma passed away)!
We debated on the trip and how to get there-being pregnant and traveling about 14 hours was some what of the big discussion! But, after we looked at the $1,000 plane tickets we decided to drive! I am feeling great now and knew if we stopped every 2-3 hours I could make it!
We got to Mom & Dad's at 5AM on Saturday morning and enjoyed the time with them, Mike's brother Phil and getting to know Brian's girlfriend! We had calling hours on Saturday and the Memorial service on Sunday. Grandma planned her funeral out last fall, as she was almost 92 and was ancy to go to Heaven and see Grandpa and her 2 boys already preceeded in death by her! We traveled back home Monday morning and we are SO glad that we took the time out of our busy schedules to be there! My boss was generous enough to give me 2 and 1/2 days off of work and Mike had a full 2 days off as well! Mike was in transition with a new client, so the timing could not have been any better! We will really miss Grandma especially her laughs,teasing her (the boys especially, her faithful birthday cards to us all, homemade cream puffs and most of all, her unconditional love! She was known for her quilt making and it really makes us treasure the quilts we have here in our house!
I am 16 weeks and feeling great!
Many of you have been asking to see photos of me-so I finally have a photo to post!
I really have just started showing and I am at such an in-between phase of clothes! Looking forward to the belly really popping out (and rounding more) so that the maternity clothes fit better! My next appointment is March 23 and the beginning of April is the big ultra sound!
But we are Still NOT going to find out the sex of the baby! Some of you are disappointed but it will be one of the most interesting phone calls you'll get from Mike-come Aug! To many debates of me wanting to know and Mike not wanting to know! It will make all the labor in Aug. more worth it to know what the baby is!
Blessings to you all,
Jenn, Mike and Baby :)
