i’ve had a few questions on my formspring regarding our wedding.  it is still hard to for me to put what our wedding was like into words.  it was the most beautiful day of my life.  once again, i’ll let pictures do the talking.  the following photographs are courtesy of our incredible photographer, geoffrey horowitz of leapfrog photography in media, pennsylvania.

a beautiful day:

there are so many more pictures i could share with you, but that would be a MONSTROUS post (our photographer gave us a cd with over 900 pictures).  it was the most amazing day of my life, and being surrounded by the people who love us most was incredible.  the decorations, food, music, etc. made the day awesome, but our family and friends made it unforgettable.

10 weeks, less than 7 months.

today our kumquat is exactly 10 weeks old.  he/she has doubled in size in the last 3 weeks and is due to double again in the next 3.  in two weeks, our kumquat will be a lime!  A LIME!  kumquat’s major systems are now in place, but will continue to develop over the next 30 weeks.  little k is also getting ready to make his/her first poop!  this part blows my mind.  this little guy is pooping inside me?  WHAT!?

in less gross news, my developing placenta has taken some of the hormonal burden from me.  this means i am eating more and throwing up less!  HUZZAH!  those other less than comfortable 1st trimester symptoms, such as soreness and fatigue, should start to subside in the next few weeks.  i am anxiously awaiting that burst of energy everyone talks about.  more than anything, i am ready to start showing.  i can’t wait to have some tangible physical evidence of little k.  from what i’ve read, i’ll likely wake up sometime in the next month and suddenly have a small bump.
