*26 weeks, 3 days*
Happy 4th of July to all! I had quite a busy day today, and for the first time in ages, I felt productive! I've been sick since the middle of last week with a sinus infection-slash-head cold, and I just can't seem to kick it. I was on antibiotics for five days, and now I'm hoping Sudafed and Vitamin C can do the trick. I do feel the best today that I've felt in days, thank goodness.
Anyways, this morning I went to the Wheaton parade, followed by a visit to Ben's grandma's house for lunch. After a short time there I came home, and totally got on a roll cleaning the house! I cleaned out the garage, reorganized the cabinets in the garage and laundry room, cleaned up the kitchen, dining room, & living room, and scrubbed both toilets! I was good and sweaty when I was done - the sign of a productive day!
Tonight we had the fam over for BBQ, the Cubs, & the fireworks. Everyone (including a small dog) watched the fireworks from the roof, except for me and Julie - thanks for keeping me and baby company! Ben's BBQing was great as always, the Cubs won, AND I got all of that cleaning done, so it was pretty much a perfect day.
After everyone left, I was reclining on the couch, with my shirt pulled up past my belly, and I could literally SEE the baby kicking. My belly was bouncing with every kick!! I told Ben to look, and he saw it too! He put his hand on my belly, and he FINALLY felt our little monkey move for the first time!!! Yay!
