She's still middle nameless, but...

I love when my students rub my belly. The ownership they've taken over this baby is so sweet. Almost all of them have a pretty adamant opinion about what her name should be: 
Mrs. Hawley Junior

But today, I finally decided to break it to them that she already has a name...and it's 
They all thought it was weird. 

25 weeks

I started out this pregnancy keeping a journal, and writing about every little thing blah blah...
But now I guess this blog is the closest thing to a journal that I've got. So a few dates I might want to remember someday: 

January 26 - Movement! I was so excited, and of course called my mom right away so she could convince me that, yes, you really did feel her! (like she even knew)
February 10 - "unofficial ultrasound" Mostly like a boy!
February 22 - "official ultrasound" No, definitely a girl! 
February 27 - Ben felt her kick - making this baby a little (but not completely) more real for him
March 1 - EVERYBODY seemed to notice I was pregnant today - at least 15 people commented on my belly at work
March 15 - Saw her move from the outside! Watching my belly is now our favorite pastime. (Or it is mine at least, and Ben humors me)
April 14 - Felt the first round of hiccups

Week 23

I was the grumpiest teacher ever today. Walking by another teacher, I so negatively said "It's only Wednesday..." And she replied with, "Only 7 more Wednesdays!"

And then I looked at my kids and realized I only had 7 more Wednesdays with them and I realized that I was way too grouchy today. 

Also, I'm in charge of 89ers Day at school. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know what that was. It was simply called "The Land Run" back when I was a tot. Needless to say, it might be a lame 89ers Day at Rollingwood Elementary. 

I'm already done house hunting - too stressful. I've sent my brave husband out with the realtor twice now without me. I've got the perfect excuse of having a job, while he's living the 4th year medical student dream life - sleeping in and golfing. His time is coming.
