baby 3 ultrasound pics!

not sure what this one is...maybe face?

both arms and hands

profile: looks like its sucking its thumb

better profile pic (keep in mind that we asked to NOT know the sex of the baby, so what you might think you see, is probably just umbilical cord...unless the tech secretly tried to give it away...)

so i'm 19 weeks 2 days pregnant. the baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and measures 6 inches, head to bottom, approximately the size of an heirloom tomato . i, on the other hand, am weighing in at about 162 lbs (7lbs gain so far). i would classify this pregnancy as being "hard" at this point so i was very happy to see the baby today. it just helps to remind me of the joy thats coming...and the labour too...which in some weird way is also something to look forward to, to hope that i can "do" better this time.

our cute kids...

playing nicely together

messy eater

using a spoon

spotless eater ;)

i think this picture is hilarious...diedre has an alphabet writing book where you trace the letters. she took the picture of an onion on the "n" page and drew herself with eyes, nose, mouth, arms, legs and lots of curly hair. so cute!

at the park with grandma

ezekiel tries on his new protective equipment for biking, but he didnt want to bike at all...

diedre does the circuit

ezekiel's hair is so staticky on this cold but sunny day

he loves the slide

diedre is such a big girl on the swing now

and on these idea what to call them...

18 weeks pregnant

well i finally felt the baby kick a few times. i've been so tired lately and it could be more growth spurts from this baby. ezekiel's been waking up every night and thats been so tiring. last night i let him cry for 15 minutes in the middle of the night (which derek slept through thankfully) and i'm hoping that might help reboot him to sleeping all night and not expecting me to go in.

i got some birthday money and went maternity shopping. i love pajamas and so i bought 2 pairs of maternity ones that were on sale and got two pairs of jeans as the pair i've had for 3 years doesnt fit that well this time around...i guess the body is ever-changing ;P

i'm looking forward to my ultrasound on april 28 :) so we can get a look at this little one.

UPDATE: ezekiel FINALLY slept through the night! twice!!!

art with the kids
