20 Weeks!!

20 Weeks

How far along? 20 weeks...half way there!
Food cravings: Soft serve ice a cone
Biggest Moment? Heading to our 20 week ultrasound
Movement? Baby loves to dance and kick! I am even seeing the kicks on the outside on top of feeling them!
Baby's Milestones: Baby is growing fast he/she is now 6.5 inches long and weighs about 10 ounces!

We had our appointment today. The monitor we normally get to see things on was broken so it was kind of disappointing. Our tech was really nice and tried to turn her screen to us as much as possible. We saw babies feet and lots of profile shots. We even were able to see baby moving it's lips and cute!
The tech tempted us with finding out the sex by offering to write it down and put an in an envelope. but we held strong...go thing Ryan was there to keep me from saying yes. I'm finding it harder to be team green this time around. However, after today there is no turning back and I know I will be so happy with our decision on delivery day!
Here are a few pictures of our sweet little one!

This picture is a little weird but you are looking at it's face straight on. You can also see the arm to the right and it's body is kinda wrapped up and around. She was trying to get a good face shot for us, but baby was apparently very content in this very weird position.

Baby feet!

Baby is measuring 3 days behind like he/she has at every ultrasound and is weighing a whopping 12 ounces!
We love you little bean!

Snow Baby...

We live in Denver, but we had to go to STL for Brinley's first snow experience of the season. She loves snow...loves it! We have gotten some here in Denver, but it is always gone by the time we actually have a minute to get out and play. 

Brinley was so excited when we started the long process of getting her ready to play outside, she couldn't wait to go sledding and build a snow man.

Christmas Wrap Up....

Christmas 2012 is one that won't be forgotten. Brinley spent early Christmas Eve morning puking for hours she was miserable and I felt awful for her. She really turned it around and was able to enjoy her evening and Christmas Day. I on the other hand woke up sick Christmas Day and I got worse and worse as the day progressed, then about half way through Ryan started feeling sick too. We were in bed before 7 pm. 
Thankfully it was a quick bug and we were feeling better the next day. 
Brinley was such a trooper and didn't let a little flu bug spoil her Christmas fun. 
Santa comes on Christmas Eve morning at our house because we are at the airport on Christmas Day here are a few pictures of what Santa brought B. 

Later that day we headed to Ryan's parents to celebrate with them.....

Brinley loved opening all of her presents and was so blessed to get some many awesome toys from Santa and our family. She spends hours each day just going from toy to toy and it makes my heart smile. She is such a sweet little girl. It's hard to believe that next year we will have a another sweet baby in the mix!

17 Weeks!

We are moving right along and getting closer and closer to the halfway point! I was looking back at pictures from Brinley and I think I am smaller this time around that I was with Brinley. I feel like I'm not showing as much as I should be since this is my second, but I also have to keep reminding myself I'm only 17 weeks and I shouldn't be complaining :)

Here I am at 17 weeks with Brinley:

Baby #2

How far along? 17 weeks
Food cravings: Thin tortilla chips...weird right?
Biggest Moment? Starting a new year! 2013 is going to be amazing!!
Movement? I *think* I might have felt Baby from the outside the other day. Its hard to tell because the movements are still sporadic. I am also noticing more kicks instead of flutters.
Baby's Milestones: Baby is growing fast he/she is now 5 inches long and weighs 5 ounces!

16 Week Bump Update

Week 16 was spent finishing last minute Christmas shopping and preparing to head out of town...

Here I am on Christmas Day..we were up early to head to the airport

How far along? 16 weeks
Food cravings: Cereal...I can't get enough of it!
Biggest Moment? Tending to Sweet Brinley who came down with the flu just 3 days before Christmas :(
Movement? I am feeling movements here and there. They are getting stronger every week!
What I'm looking forward to: Spending lots of time with my family and friends.
Baby's Milestones: Baby is now 4.5 inches long and weighs around 3.5 ounces
