16 Weeks, NYC and My 200th Post

Wow!  My 200th post!  Kind of crazy!  It's been over a year since my 100th post and a lot has happened since then.  Somehow, I think the next 100 will be even more eventful!

Anyway, I made it to 16 weeks on Thursday, which was our graduation day.  We are so thankful for our training but thankful to be finished as well.  It was a great time but we are looking forward to what's next!

Here's my 16-week pic...

The highlight from this week was another doctor's appointment and hearing Baby E's heartbeat again.  It's just the coolest thing ever!  What a miracle!

We left Virginia Friday morning and drove up to New Jersey to spend the weekend with my brother.  Yesterday we went into Manhattan to enjoy the Christmas spirit.  It was crazy there but we had a great time.  We walked a lot and looked at all the window displays, we checked out the tree in Rockefeller Center, went to Central Park and Ground Zero and ended the day with a delicious meal in Little Italy.  We were exhausted by the end of the day, which I think is a sign of a great trip.

Here are some pics of the day...

We are leaving NJ in the morning and will head down to Raleigh to continue the travel craziness before we leave on the 1st!

Yeah, I could notice a pretty big difference too this week. I am still wearing my regular clothes, we'll see how much longer that lasts! We're excited about Thursday too!
