Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you'll miss it.'

-Ferris Bueller

Ferris never said anything truer. Life over the past couple of weeks has been amazingly busy.

Rebecca is celebrating the end of her first medical school year with four year end exams. They are topical and the information begins back in August. Fortunately she doesn't have to heavily excel in them to keep her grades high, but that doesn't alleviate the stress of them. These exams, Shelf exams, are designed to teach medical students how to prepare and study for Step exams (or at least this is how I understand them). Her tummy as continued to grow making space for Blueberry. Rebecca had a doctor's appointment last week for blood taking, no fun stuff. It looks like we'll be waiting another 4 weeks to find out Blueberry's gender. We're a little tired of waiting. :)

According to Blueberry will double in weight and grow inches in the next few weeks. Blueberry is the size of an AVOCADO., guacamole jokes. Legs are more developed, ears are close to final position and the 'patterning' of his scalp has begun - I pray for no cow licks. They are awful. Blueberry is also started growing toenails (wow). Also, his Grandma Pierce bought Blueberry the first gift - a 'My First Medical Kit' with fun medical stuff.
Blueberry also got a great little picture frame for the sonogram picture from Lala! (Pics to come.) When were we in the Bahamas we searched high and low, close and far for a onesie and found this great one!
Life for me is going well. It's been a tad difficult balancing a new store and school. Sometimes when I get so passionate about something I'll let others slide. I think we all do it. I am thankful that I recognize when this happens and am able to fix it pretty quickly. My family made the trek to visit us two weekends ago and it was great having them here. A lot of time was spent on the front porch relaxing.
I'm gonna try and take Ferris' advice this week and slow down a little bit. I believe golf will be on the agenda Thursday. I'm pretty pumped about that!
