Second Ultrasound - 13 weeks!

How crazy, that in just a few short weeks, Burrito nearly quadrupled in size!!! At 13 weeks, he/she was over 2.5 inches (or over 16 cm) as compared to only 1.7 cm at week 9. Jackie, my youngest sister, got to come with me for this ultrasound - she was astonished at how much the baby was moving around and kicking his/her legs. I don't think she really believed me that I was pregnant until she witnessed firsthand the ultrasound. It was such an exciting event that I'm thrilled she was able to be a part of! I am literally counting down the days until our next ultrasound - not because we get to find out if it's a boy or a girl, but because I absolutely love seeing my little baby wiggling around in there. What a freakin' miracle?!

My growing waistline - week 13

What cracks me up most about this picture is Rosie's sweet face in the background. She knows something is going on, but she's not quite sure yet what's up. Our biggest hope is that Rosie will love and be sweet to Burrito - it's going to be a rude awakening for her to all of a sudden go from #1 priority to #2; but she's such a sweet, loving girl that we're pretty confident Rosie and Burrito will be the best siblings to one another!

Official Welcome!

As you may have noticed, from the gentle (ha!) persuasion of a dear friend of mine, I decided to start a blog about how our pregnancy is progressing, complete with pictures, updates, etc. Our hope is that this will become a quick and easy place for all of the people we love so much to come and keep up-to-date on our daily lives while eagerly anticipating our sweet baby.

Some upcoming milestones:
  • May 4th is our next appointment with Dr. Hoover
  • May 26th is the ultrasound to find out if it's a boy or a girl
  • And in June (possibly the 14th), our awesome friends are throwing us a co-ed baby shower/crawfish boil (how fun will that be!)
We have so much to do in preparation for Burrito's arrival, but as I've told some of you before, I think the Lord has blessed me with a whole new personality over the past few months - rather than being anxious and constantly worried (like I normally tend to be), I am cool, calm and collected, resting in the comfort that our understanding and protective Father has walked this path before us and will provide for and protect us.

We love each of you so very much and are so excited to share with you this blessed journey of ours. Feel free to come visit, call, text, email, send smoke signals, etc. anytime! :) I will add some recent belly pics and ultrasound pics later today when I find the cord to the camera...pregnancy brain - ugh!

P.S. Didn't Allison do an amazing job of getting my blog started with some pictures she had on her camera and making the background all pretty?? She's pretty awesome!
