A Vision of Things to Come

No, we haven't disappeared from the face of the earth -- we have just had one thing after another with no time left to blog.

A couple of weeks ago we spent a fantastic ten days vacationing in Maine at Micah's parents. The ocean air did us good. Eileen's usual afternoon slump vanished as we climbed on rocks and hiked the trails at Acadia National Park. Baby's "first" camping trip was a success.

For Eileen it was all the better because she and Micah's mom hit the thrift shop jackpot for maternity clothes. Pennsylvania has great thrift shops -- but the dregs for maternity clothes. She came away with 7 pants and 7 tops -- all like new. She is now set for when her belly "pops" (even now things are a little desperate, but nothing that safety pins and a long shirt won't solve).

Here is one preview of her new wardrobe.

Note: Eileen is NOT this big at 12 weeks -- that would be very disconcerting. Rather the hidden prop of a pillow creates the desired effect of things to come.
