Pregnancy Update!

How far along: 18 weeks
Size of baby: 5.5 inches/5 ounces/sweet potato
Weight gained/lost: -4 pounds
Maternity clothes: not quite needing to yet
Gender: we have our big ultrasound in August but we still aren't 100% sure if we will find out or not.
Movement: not yet
Symptoms: having lots of Braxton Hick's contractions (a bit early for that business), migraines, and fatigue
Food cravings/aversions: no cravings or aversions. It's hot, trying to focus on water and popsicles
What I'm looking forward to: seeing our "little little" again!

This is our little sweetie and 16 weeks! I had to have an u/s to make sure everything was in good shape since I've been having so many BH's contractions. Everything looked normal, so I'm just focusing on resting, when possible. It was a treat to see the baby's heart, brain, kidneys, and stomach all working and growing!

21 Months!

Dear Liam Davy,

Happy 21 month birthday! I cannot believe how quickly these months are zooming by! We are loving learning more about you and chasing you all over the place!

Once again, I don't know your weight or measurements! You are wearing 18 and 24 month clothes and size 4 diapers. And, we finally found some shoes to fit your fat feet in a size 6!!! You are also very heavy, my arms ache from hauling you around!

You are still a great eater and you love fruits most of all! You have started objecting to being spoon fed by us and aren't into spoon feeding yourself, so you are strictly a finger foods guy right now.

Buddy, you are a dancing fool! When we catch your eye across the room you usually drop your shoulder and start "singing" your song while you bust some moves! You are constantly running, climbing, and trying to jump. You are a busy little dude, which means mommy and daddy are worn out...and loving it!

You are still obsessed with Gus aka "woof woof." When we come home you run into our room and stand at his crate asking for "woof woof" until we let him out. Love it!

Little man, you have decided you like to snuggle before bed which means that bedtime is my favorite part of everyday! We read "I Love You, Stinkyface," sing, and snuggle. You are such a little sweetie!

Darling boy, your mommy and daddy are so thrilled to have you for our son! We have so much fun learning and playing together. I love watching you learn something new and hearing you recite your words. We are so proud of you, Liam. And we always will be.

Love you forever, and ever,
