Week 25

Another week  has passed, wow, Summer will be over before we know it, which is sad in a way, but... ever so exciting!!!

This week our baby is measuring 13.7 inches and weighs 1 1/2 pounds. He/she is busy putting on more fat, getting chubbier arms and legs. Another big thing happening is the development of the spine, including 33 vertebrae, 150 joints, and 1000 ligaments!! I am continually amazed at this little miracle growing inside me!

3 months 2 weeks, or 106 days left.

Psalm 102:1, 2, 12, 13 + 27

Hear my prayer, Oh Lord, and let my cry come unto Thee.

Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble;
 incline thine ear unto me:
 in the day when I call answer me speedily.

For thou Oh Lord shalt endure forever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea the set time is come.

Thou art the same and thy years have no end.

Week 24

I beginning to really notice that I have a living, moving baby growing inside me! I can feel where the baby is at, and sometimes my tummy looks kinda lopsided, it's very amusing for me so if you find that I'm not paying attention to you just tell me so. :)
Still feeling great, growing and waiting. The baby is now 1.3 lbs. and measures 11.8 inches. This week baby will be starting to replace his/her cartilage with real bone and also growing more layers of fat. The lungs are also still developing more. 

Only 16 weeks, or 3 months and 21 days left.

Watching An Airplane

Last week the field beside our house was getting sprayed by a sprayer plane, it was noisy but really interesting and fun to watch.

And in farm news Josh and Dad have been busy spraying and haying :) They got all the cut hay baled today and at supper time they had 3 fields left to spray, by the time Josh gets in tonight I'm sure it will be less. We have really been enjoying the sunshine and HOT weather, everything is growing and blooming, it's a wonderful time of year!

Week 23

Another week has gone by already! One thing that is very different between my last pregnancy and this one is how fast it's going. With Andrew it seemed to go on and on and now time is flying by!
Not much has changed this week, the baby has grown 1/2 an inch and is putting on weight (so am I) :) He/she really had a busy day today, most days I will just feel the baby at lunch time and in the evening, but today was different, must be all the strawberries I'm eating. :)
I'm still feeling great, I have all the energy that I need, although I did have a nap today. I bought a cute little pink sleeper yesterday, not sure if I'll need it this time, but just in case.

3 months and 27 days left.

Memories Monday

This morning Andy and I watched Josh head to the field to cut hay, it brought back a lot of memories from when I would head out with Josh every morning and hang out with him all day. Josh had a nice little seat in every tractor that he drove just for me and I enjoyed spending the whole day with him.
Now things have changed a lot and I don't get ride nearly as much as I would like to. But I am looking forward to when Andy can ride a long all day, I know he will have just as much fun as I did.

Week 22

 This is something that I wanted to do since the beginning of my pregnancy, but of course I forgot. :) And I can't promise that I'll remember to do it every week, but I'll try.

Our baby is now 11 inches long and weighs about 1 lb. He/she is starting to grow hair :) And is working on brain development.

I am doing great, Andy and I like to go for a walk every day. I don't feel so tired anymore and as long as I eat the baby is happy. He/she is moving a lot now, especially between 10 and 12 at night, I'm not sure why then, but it's better than in the middle of the night.
Only 18 weeks or 4 months and 4 days left!!!

 This last weekend we were able to take off and spend some time away from home relaxing and enjoying nature.
We went along with my family to a cabin that belongs to some friends of theirs, and we had a blast! Even though we spend the night in our tent, trying to sleep through a thunder storm, at least we stayed warm and dry. :)

Rita and Andrew right after getting there, enjoying the water.

We didn't waste any time, and got started fishing right away.

And then most everyone went swimming. Randy and spent some time on the paddle boat relaxing and fishing.

Andrew had a great time splashing in the water and spending time with Grama.

On Monday after a super meal of fresh fish we spent more time in the water.

Tube rides

Andrew joined us in the water, but he wasn't to sure about it. I'm pretty sure he liked the dock better.

Knee boarding... my husband was the best one there! :)

Andy back on dry ground.

We were sad it had to end but we all enjoyed our time A LOT!!
Camping is so much fun!
