October gave in to November. I tried a case in court and felt like a real lawyer. I held my breath at the first OB appointment. I heard our baby’s heartbeat warble at 160 on the monitor. Fast, but not too fast.
We had a new nephew down in Dallas. We hopped on the 35 the afternoon before Thanksgiving for a long weekend.
We ate a wonderful dinner and played Settlers of Catan (I won at both eating and Catan). Mostly though, over the course of the weekend, we held the baby; and talked about how our lives would change.
We went ice skating together at a big mall in Dallas with a giant Christmas tree. A few months pregnant, Kris was still the superior skater, though I was more aggressive. Like life.
We made the five hour trek back north to Wichita, where the air was reasonably chilled. I had more cases to prep for and we had a 20 week sonogram on the horizon. Life, moving at the speed of life.
