I'm halfway there! We are both so excited we can't stand it. Ben poked at my belly the other night and said "Hurry up and get here!". We have a crib and she has a few outfits, but other than that we haven't done much planning.
Here she is! 20 weeks!
She is the size of a banana.
Movement: I think she may have turned sometime this week. I may be wrong, but her movement is in different places and more up high than down low.
Total Weight Gain: Fluctuating between 9 and 10 lb
Cravings: Kiwi, Peanut Butter M&M's (thanks to one of my students that always has a bag in class)
One of the more exciting things about this past weekend was my company. I have had the pleasure of having my family up here for two weekends in a row and I am rotten now. I keep waiting for another group to come in for the weekend. Blair and Ash came up Friday and they were able to stay until Monday morning. It was so nice to get to spend time with them and play with Blair. She is full time!
First things first, brownies! Blair is a pro at making anything. She can measure flour, sugar, pour, crack eggs, and stir. She is even great at cleaning up the leftover batter :)
We had a baby cow born while they were here that Ben thought wasn't drinking milk. Just to be safe, we gave him a bottle of colostrum to give him a head start. He is up and running now, but he was not feeling so hot the day he was born. You normally don't want to be able to get this close to baby cows - it usually means that there may be a problem if they aren't running from you, but it was fun for Blair to see him up close and personal. As soon and she saw the big cows she said, "Mama cows!".
She was a little apprehensive of him at first.
She finally gave him a little pet,
and even a kiss!
I had such a wonderful time with my company and can't wait for them to come back!
(The only way I could get Blair to take a picture with me was letting her push the button on the remote!)
