I was just thinking last week how 'normal' I have felt during this pregnancy.  No morning sickness, minimal fatigue, steady emotions, etc.  (BTW - all of this makes me think it's a boy)  Anyway... I have been surprised at how unemotional I've been. I was a mess during the first trimester with Avery.  I remember talking on the phone with Matt (in tears) and telling him I know everything is fine and I know it's just pregnancy hormones but I cant stop crying. There were days when the smallest thing would set me off.  Up until yesterday, I haven't felt like an emotional wreck at all.

Yesterday something changed though.

I am HOMESICK.  I am sad I can't be home with Avery. I am thankful for my family and friends. I am so in love with my hubby.  I'm stressed about money.  I could go on and on.  I have no idea what changed but it's been a long week. More than anything, I think I'm feeling homesick.  I want to be close to my family.  I want to be able to call up my sister at lunch and invite her and Bryan over for dinner.  I want my parents to be able to watch Avery on Friday nights so Matt and I can spend a little time as a married couple.

I always want these things.  In fact, I daydream about it on a weekly basis but for some reason today I can't think abouti it without getting teary-eyed. Ugh, I spent my whole drive into work fighting back tears because of a song on the radio.  I don't know what is going on with my body but I'm glad it's Friday and I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend with two of my favorite people. 

It also doesn't help that a certain little girl will be 18 months old tomorrow.  A year and a half!! This is going by way too fast.  I'm really loving this age and I wish we could make it last longer. 

Here are a few pictures from last weekend.  Between my birthday and Halloween I'm really behind on posting pictures.  Hopefully I'll get caught up this weekend!
