Doing well in week twenty-three. Baby Boy is kicking but it hasn't become uncomfortable yet. People want to know if we've considered names, but I've yet to reach that point. Even with the first one, it wasn't really something we thought about until fairly late into the pregnancy. My parents didn't even discuss her Korean name until I was doubled over in pain at the hospital. And to be honest, we've still got a lot of work to do in the house to even think about names. He'll just be "the baby" until we get closer to February.

Dad is also doing well. He had his penultimate treatment last week. They changed the treatment so he doesn't feel so terrible after it. He has one more in November, with a follow-up with his oncologist a couple weeks after that. If all goes well, my parents may plan on returning to the states for a few months before returning to Korea for the three-month follow-up in February. Mom is worried she will miss Baby Boy's birth, but it's probably more important that she be with Dad than me. Granted, I could use my mom's help in the two weeks immediately following the birth, but I think I can manage to take care of myself and the baby (and Baby Girl and Husband). Everything is still conditional, so we'll see what happens.

This weekend we tackled the yard and got a lot done. We picked the last of the peppers; pulled up the rest of the plants; raked and bagged leaves; and mowed the lawn. I got a lot of laundry finished, and we started sorting and organizing Baby's toys and books. Next weekend's project will be to find a nice shelving system to put in the living room to hold the toys and books. That way, we can also unpack the rest of Baby's toy/book boxes.

    Plus I like your quote: happiness is relative. That is so true.
