Our Newest Addition
|We're expecting! Here I am showing off my growing belly (taken today) at sixteen weeks. Due date is March 23!|
The plane ride back and the weeks afterward I couldn't think about Hawaii. I didn't want to see the pictures. I didn't want to tell people how the trip went. I didn't even want Walter to wear his souvenir shirt. In fact, he had to pack all of our clothes into the closet and hide them from my sight because I would gag if I caught even a glimpse of the string of my bathing suit.
I'd always loved trying different foods, but the only food I wanted was the most plain, boring foods. (I told Walter I was eating like him.) I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything but sleep. Yet, life had to go on. Despite the all day nausea, I was excited and happy because I knew I was going to have a baby.
|My first gift to my baby. I drew and water colored a Winnie|
the Pooh picture. Then, painted the frame with chalk paint.
The quote says, "Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So
today is my new favorite day."
Now, I'm in my second trimester. I'm feeling much better (I like food again). None of my pants fit in the waist and my tops are a lot more snug. It's sometimes hard to remember that getting bigger is a good thing. (Just not too big!) Tomorrow makes four months.
This Friday, we might get to find out if we are having a little Miss Jess or a Walt Jr. We don't have a pick. We just pray every day for a healthy baby. This baby is what we think about daily and is already loved more than he or she could ever know.
So, what do you predict? A boy or a girl?
