I go back for my complete growth/anatomy scan on March 11, and hopefully "he" will still be a "he". I've been feeling great, got my energy back and I'm so happy to report that nausea/morning sickness is gone forever. That stuff is brutal and I wish it upon no one.
I've felt a few movements from the little guy here and there but nothing substantial. Big sister Ava loves to "kiss da baby", see pic below:
We keep asking her what we should name baby brother and she replies, "baby brother". I really don't think it's clicked yet as far as her understanding that there is a real baby in mommy's tummy. She did graduate from her first 8 weeks of gymnastics. She got a blue ribbon that she calls her "present". We are still doing gymboree as she just has a great time with the other kids there too. Oh, and she LOVES boys. Whenever we see boys (no matter what age), she says, "awww look at the cute boys". Yep, we are in some serious TROUBLE here folks lol.
Since the weather has been nothing short of perfect, we've been hitting the beach alot recently. Ava loves to play in the sand, throw shells and chase the "duckies" (sea gulls).
And of course I have a blast taking and editing photos of her. Her excitement for the little things is a small reminder of how precious life is. Speaking of life, here are a few more ultrasound pics of our nameless little boy.....
