24 weeks.

here are some thoughts on pregnancy,

  • my internal clock wakes me up between 4:45 - 5:00 every morning. now don't get me wrong, this would have been great when i was working out last fall before work and tried to get to the gym by when i dont have to teach summer school til 8? not so cool. i get super deeduper sleepy around 10ish, and im usually in the middle of a reading group - trying to teach jumal, fresh from ethiopa, how to read and comprehend a text in english. 

  • continuing to fight my internal battle with accepting my growing/changing body...slowly but surely i'll come around (probably just in time for fall when i can finally wear jeans again because its not 98 degrees outside) but really.........this week is better than last week, and that's progress :)

  • totally loving the energy that comes with the 23rd/24th week. i can mow the lawn (something i thoroughly enjoy. for real), clean the house, and even cook a mean tuna caserole (dont know how to spell that word) that mr leif liked, it was edible!!!......all in one afternoon!!!! booooooyah.


  1. Love the picture updates! You are too cute :) I also, love the braid to side - I have been rocking this a lot lately (and have one in right now!)

    Hope to see you very, very soon!

  2. You must have a brain tumor because you are the cutest most adorable pregnant lady I've every seen!! And I'm not just saying that to be nice! You are seriously!! Absolutely stunning! So, I miss you friend! I'm finally getting back into the groove of things....haven't been on the computer in awhile and am just now starting to get back in the groove of things. Hope everything is going well with you. i'm sure I've missed alot of the pregnancy updates as I haven't been on the computer in like a month, so I hope you are doing well and I hope to see you soon! also, totally off subject...but how did you do your header with the picture collage. I've been trying to look up how to do that and can't find the answer. Help please!!! love you friend!
