I'm 24 weeks today! One of the websites I frequent compares the baby's size to fruit. At 24 weeks she's about the size of a papaya (around 8 inches long and 1.5 pounds). Jimmy likes to do a daily belly button check. We're thinking before long I'll have an outie. Here's a picture Jimmy took the other day of me eating my favorite food. Ice Cream!!! Looking a little guilty huh? :)

I would just like to say that I absolutely love my husband! I know I'm not technically a mom yet but Jimmy thought we should celebrate anyway. :) I thought I had dehydrated myself yesterday with all the crying at the wedding, but apparently I still had some tears left. Happy Mother's Day everyone!
Yesterday, Saturday May 9th, Debbie (Jimmy's sister) became Mrs. Kevin VanVooren! It was a wonderful weekend that began on Thursday night with pedicures and dinner with the VanVooren crew. Friday we had a wonderful bridesmaid's luncheon at the Green Valley Grill and then off to the church to practice for the big day. Luckily the weather was great so we were able to have the rehearsal dinner on the roof of Ganache in downtown Greensboro. We began a busy Saturday with Debbie proclaiming, "I'm getting married today!" at 6:45 and then off to the hair salon by 8:30. We got back to Maryanne and Ray's by 11:30 to do makeup and get dressed before the limo arrived at 12:30. And it's off to the church! The ceremony was beautiful and of course Debbie was breathtaking. I had a very hard time controlling my emotions and didn't just cry, but sobbed through most of it. Again luck was on our side. The rain held out until we finished with pictures and pulled up to the Proximity for the reception. From here on out it was party, party, party! This morning we gathered once more for a great breakfast before we all had to go our separate ways. It was a wonderful weekend and Jimmy and I were so excited to be a part of it. We love you, Debbie and Kevin!!!
