|Afternoon nap with Monkey|
Boogie, much like her daddy, would rather spend her time outside and in the water, than inside playing with toys. What fun is having baby dolls if they can't go digging for dinosaurs in the dirt? I can't even imagine what the first fishing trip will be like, but I plan to go and capture every single (and utterly disgusting) bit of the momentous "daddy-daughter fishing day" on film.

I think what I love so much about spending lazy end of summer days with my family is that we are all so close. We accept each other for our faults and difference and this clearly reflects in our children and how much they love each other!
In other news I'm in my second trimester officially! Less than 200 days until our Baby Nowell is here and the excitement grows everyday, although I'm finding myself growing more and more anxious and always finding something that needs to be done with the house. I've been thinking about reworking the house and organizing better. I still haven't decided between Boogie and school I just don't know when I would work this in, but still, I might try.
Weekly Pregnancy Update!
How far along? 12 weeksTotal weight gain: two pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes!
Stretch marks? no new ones ;)
Sleep: It's been a long and draining process the past week trying to get sleep. I'm sure this is partly to blame on my cold and this cough I can't get rid of, but I'm starting to notice it's getting harder and harder to sleep on my stomach and I'm such a stomach sleeper!
Best moment this week: Thinking I felt the flutter of movement, it was the faintest of flutters, but it wasn't gas!
Miss Anything? Having a drink with friends, but this is so worth it!
Movement: According to my ultrasound Baby Nowell moves constantly, but I haven't felt her outside yet, but the faintest of movements inside!
Food cravings: Fruits and veggies. Recently it's been tomato's (with salt), cucumbers (with ranch), watermelon, and turnip greens.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My toothpaste. I'm still using it but when I make my way into town this week I will be finding a different flavor and seeing if that helps.
Gender Prediction: Girl, although Deven is predicting boy!
Labor Signs: Not yet, thankfully!
Symptoms: Lots of gas and heartburn! Let's not forget nausea and peeing.
Belly Button in or out? In
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and Tired!
Looking forward to: The second trimester and feeling the actual movements and finding out the baby sex!
