Week 34

Week 34! Wow, time seems to be going so fast, and yet not fast enough; I can't wait to meet this little miracle!
This week baby Pauls is working on developing it's immune and digestive systems. It he/she were to be born this week it would be able to digest milk without any problems.
The length of our baby this week is just over 17 inches and he/she weighs around 4 to 5 pounds!

I feel like I'm running out of room for this baby. :) Every kick is very easily felt and I find myself jumping once in awhile when my ribs are in babies way. But I am so blessed to still have this little one inside me!
Next week Monday we have an ultrasound to see if this baby will have the same syndrome as Andy has, I am ever so excited to see our baby!!

1 month and 12 days, or 43 days left!

A Beautiful Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday we headed over to family for lunch and the afternoon. It was a very beautiful day outside and the kids had a great time playing some football, and I had a nice time taking pictures.

Week 33

It's getting colder... which means that the time for our baby to be born is getting closer!!
This week the babies lungs are almost developed and if it were to be born now Lord willing we would not need to spend much more than 2 weeks in the hospital!
Basically all that the baby is working on these days is getting longer and heavier. He/she weighs around 4 1/2 pounds and measures just over 17 inches.
He or she is also sensitive to light and noise now, often I'll feel a big jump when there is a loud noise. I love knowing that he/she is in there listening to us talk.

I'm feeling big and great! I really enjoying these last few weeks, and I'm beginning to make lists of things to do before the baby gets hear. And once it does I promise that this blog will be more interesting to read again! :)

1 month and 19 days or 50 days left!

Week 32

Another week closer to meeting our newest miracle, talk about exciting news!!
There is really not a lot to say about the baby this week, now that everything is developed he/she is staying busy practicing it's breathing, blinking it's eyes, sucking it's thumb, making faces, listening to whatever is happening around me, smiling and growing, growing, growing! Together we will be gaining about 1 pound every week, half of that going to the baby. :)
Right now he/she weighs around 4 pounds and measures close to 17 inches.

I'm doing great! I'm at the point where I am trying to decided if I should start getting baby stuff ready or wait longer because I don't want to be bored with nothing to do at the end of my pregnancy. :) I never feel alone because as soon as I sit down I can enjoy a wonderful preformance in my tummy. :)
1 month 3weeks and 5 days, or 57 days to go!

Canning Salsa

After much pruning, watching and waiting the tomatoes are ripe!! I'm not sure why but I really enjoy canning anything with tomatoes, in fact I have been looking forward to this day all week :)

It is such a blessing to be able to store food for the Winter, and ever so yummy!!

First we chopped up tomatoes...

Which was very exciting for Andy because he really, really likes tomatoes.

Both eating and poking holes in them. :)

Then we chopped up peppers...

and onions...

then added some spices and mixed it all together.

Then we took the empty jars...

and filled them with delicious salsa!

Week 31

Big news for the baby this week... it has now perfected the art of smelling, hearing, seeing, tasting and feeling! The only that our baby can't really do is breath, which we figured out when Andrew was born.
The rest of it's time in my womb will be spent working on learning how to breath and growing bigger and chubbier.
This week the baby weighs about 3 1/2 pounds and measures 16 inches. From this week on he/she will be gaining around 1/2 a pound every week!

I am feeling great! We had a midwife appointment last week and everything went well. The baby was head down with it's back towards mine, the perfect position for me to feel each of his/her kicks and punches. :) I can't keep from thinking only 9 more weeks, only 9 more weeks!! It's starting to get harder and harder for me not to get out the car seat and baby clothes and start packing. :) I keep telling myself to wait a few more weeks.

2 months and 3 days or 64 days left!

In The Field

Andy does not get to go a long in the grain truck very often because he is either sleeping or eating supper. Last week he got the chance to go after supper and he really enjoyed it!
