27 weeks, which means only 13 weeks (3 months) to go. And for those of you who are doing the math, yes, you really are pregnant for more like 10 months! Where this whole 9 months thing came from I have no idea! So here I am at almost 27 weeks.

We thought it would be a cool idea to have me in the same place and wearing the same thing in each picture. That is why I am still in that brown tank. Kudos to Ryan on getting the angle/position almost identical so you can really see my belly getting bigger. I am definitely moving out of the "honeymoon" stage of the pregnancy into the third trimester, but still having lots of fun. Have a great weekend!

Have I mentioned . . .

Have I mentioned how amazing it is to feel the baby move? Our little guy is quite the mover - experts say that with your first you should start to feel the movement anywhere between 20-24 weeks. Well he was kicking hard at 18, "gonna be a soccer player"! So for 2 months now I have gotten to experience this little life moving inside me. It is pretty bazaar, but so amazing. The coolest part is when Ryan feels/sees him move also - I can't even start to explain the connection that I feel with Ryan & our child, it is like the coolest feeling of being a family and being filled with so much love. I have heard from friends who are parents that you cannot even imagine the love you feel with a child - I think I am beginning to understand what they are talking about. Sometimes I just lay there and think about our little boy and how he is living, hearing, thinking, and so connected to me right now - I hope I can remember these moments 4 months from now when I am going on 2 hours of sleep. Here is a picture of the precious little legs and feet we have been feeling. We are just getting into our third trimester - you know the one where I just get huge . . . so I am really trying to enjoy the little kicks, moves, and pokes now because I have a feeling as he grows it will not be quite as cute.

Have a great week!

Back from a break

Well hello again! Sorry it has been so long, we hope you have not given up on us. So here we are, back from our little break with new stories and photos. Chrstmas was great spending time in town with Katie's Family, then traveling to New Mexico to be with Ryan's parents. Here are a few pics of our time down south. Ryan's parents own a piece of property on this horse track so they can train their quarter horses througout the winter.

It has also been a while since I have posted a belly picture, over a month actually. So as expected, here I am at 24.5 weeks, a little larger than last time. The first picture is self explanitory, but the second is a little funny - it is me looking straight down, barely able to see my feet. That is taking some getting used to! He is about 12 inches long now, and wieghs 1.5 pounds. I imagine he is getting a little cramped, but still has plenty of room to kick, stretch, poke, dance, etc.
