Seven Months Pregnant

Well, here I am seven months pregnant. I cannot tell a lie though, these were taken three weeks ago! The Christmas decorations have been taken down, and I have done some growing since then - which is easy to do even when you are not pregnant during the holidays! I laugh though, I'm not worried about pounds gained right now. I am more concerned with growing a healthy baby.

Some creative avenues I have been involved in (other than making a baby) are baking, sewing, cross stitch, and knitting. More leisurely activities have been reading, watching movies with my girls, and even playing out in the snow with them. In fact, we even built a snowman today (an activity I haven't participated in since childhood). What fun! We were downright silly, and had so much fun - I literally laughed until I cried! Making memories is a blast!

I have truly been enjoying the nesting phase of my pregnancy, but even to my own surprise, I haven't entirely given up my writing. I am still doing occasional press release projects, editing, and writing for some clients. They have been so good to me and I just can't seem to completely give up this element of my life.

My New Year's writing goals are to do some more creative writing and work on projects that would bring me more personal satisfaction. How about you? What are you working on now, and in what ways would your writing bring you the most joy in the coming year?

I miss you all, and will post again soon!

Congratulations to you too Lisa! You look great for 7 months along :) I am much bigger than you are at 8 months.

Lisa Vella said...

Thank you, Harmony! Of course, it doesn't seem to matter how much or little you gain, you still feel as big as a house, don't you think? LOL!

I hope to be readign more posts from you soon! I check back from time to time, and really miss you!

Take care!

Love the pictures of you, and the pictures of the girls with Mr. Snowman. Good job. Great post.

Missed you today. So did Barb. And, Maddy missed her little friend. I got you a tape because Steve is in China.

That sounds like code, huh? (I've been watching too many movies.)

:) Bets

Thank you for your blessings! They are much appreciated, and I will continue giving updates and returning regularly as interesting things unfold in my life!


We missed you yesterday too! I hope you will forgive us and that we can still get a copy of the sermon!


Thank you for your sweet words, as well! Glowing...hmm, must be all that nesting I've been doing has me in a sweat! LOL! I'm loving every minute of it though!

Take care and best wishes for a wonderful New Year to all of you!
