New addition

James and I finally got a dishwasher!

This is a really big deal for us. Having a dishwasher was pretty much the number one reason on our list of why we’d even consider buying a house, so it’s a relief to take that off as a priority (so now we only have to get a house if we are actually ready to buy a house).

Using the dishwasher is such a novelty right now. I think James ran the fourth load of dishes through it today (fourth since having it delivered to us on Thursday last week).

Here I am standing in front of the dishwasher:

And here James is getting ready to unload the (clean!) dishes:

We wheel the dishwasher into the kitchen when we’re ready to run it. So far, we’re pretty happy to have this as an option.

So I’ve put on a little weight…

Well, I think this is actually the most my weight has ever increased within such a short period of time (4-5 months). I don’t really feel all that different, and I would say that most people that see me don’t even guess that I’m pregnant. The people who work with me everyday can really see the changes, though! And every time my family sees me, they can tell just how different my shape is from what it has typically been.

Here’s a photo from about 2.5 weeks ago, the day we had a 19-week ultrasound done:

I guess we should tidy our apartment a bit!

James took another photo tonight, for comparison:

(And I had thought I wouldn’t look any different in this picture — I guess I’m getting used to the shape.)
