Look at that Belly!

I took this photo of myself at 29 weeks pregnant! As I sit here and write this, I think my belly has grown even more, so I will have to post another photo soon. I'm actually starting my 31 week tomorrow, so that photo is slightly out of date. I am feeling great right now, just very aware of this baby growing in my belly! Charlie and I have been to register and will soon start taking baby classes at the hospital. I believe we start on May 21 with the Childbirth Prep and Tour. Wow, things are getting real! It sounds like our new house will not be ready in time for the new baby, but that might be a good thing. With so much going on, maybe we will have a chance to get used to this baby thing before we have to dive into a move. I will keep you posted. I'm not sure what this means for my pottery studio, but I will have to play it all by ear. With my decreasing energy and Mom going through chemo, things are kind of up in the air anyway. Happy Mother's Day to all of you~ Kelly

Mother's Day

Hello everyone, Mother's Day is tomorrow, and this year has special meaning for me. With my Mom being sick, I realize that this could be our last Mother's Day together, and that weighs so heavily on my heart. Because of this, I am going to try to make the day special for her. I am taking her to Beaufort, SC, with her mother, as well, and the three of us are going to make a day of it. We are going to have lunch and go shopping and just enjoy being together. She is feeling pretty good today, and hopefully tomorrow will be another "feel-good" kind of day. She started chemotherapy last week, and so far, she is doing okay. Thank goodness for that. Mom is such a generous person. Her last stay in the hospital was for bronchitis, and she really enjoyed all of the nurses she dealt with. So what did she do? She came home and started making clay pendants for keychains for all the nurses. She just wanted to do a little something to say thank you. She has taught me so much in life and and I hope to learn even more from her as we go along on this path. Thank you to all of you who have sent me your thoughts and prayers. I do believe they are helping! Kelly
