The Easter Bunny happened to leave some goodies for the Baby Boy! A cute little basket with a car and some M&M's (for Mommy!?!) made their way from my sisters house and the most ADORABLE stuffed Lamb made its way from my moms house.
At the end of it all everyone was sleepy and as we watched some golf my precious niece, Abbey, cuddled up next to me and fell asleep. She's the BEST!
vegetable soup (thanks Mom!) and just hung out. It was nice but looking back I feel like a total slacker! Now we are in for a week of 70 to 80 degree weather - you gotta love Colorado!

I thought about this yesterday morning listening to the birds chirp - sounds so Mary Poppinsish but that made the list in my journal many times. It is one of my favorite things - a great way to start the day.
I need to start that journal again - I really enjoyed it.

I have just started to show. I will have to start posting belly pics - there just hasn't been anything to see up until now. Also - I can feel him moving all around. He seems to be more active at night which thrills Jason as he says the baby is already like him (a night owl!).
We still have done nothing with the nursery but we are now thinking of the blue/brown option since we now know which team we are on.
We are in our 20th week already and baby is the size of a Cantaloupe!
Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!
The results from our ultra sound were great - everything looks just as it should and Baby is measuring right on track. His heartbeat was 164 and Jason got to hear him kicking. The Dr. is not thrilled with my weight gain. I have actualy lost a half of a pound which means I have only gained one and a half pounds. This suprised me as I feel as though I eat a lot and I am always full. So I will be working on my caloric intake. I need to gain 4 pounds by our next appt in May.
