24 Weeks!

Another month done, I've made it to 24 weeks, or 6 months! Some days it feels like pregnancy is going by super fast, and others I feel like it is taking forever. This past month has been pretty uneventful for me. I've been getting bigger everyday but that's pretty much it. A few things are starting to get harder, like sitting for long periods of time, tying my shoes and zipping up my winter coat, but other than that I feel great. My bellybutton is dangerously close to popping out, which I wasn't expecting this early. Morgan thinks its super funny looking and most days I agree.

As far as we know, Henry is still doing really well. My doctor decided to keep my due date where it was, so he is still due March 20, but is just measuring a little big. At our last appointment he had a great heartbeat. He is as active as ever, and has started to develop a fairly predictable sleeping/waking pattern. One thing he doesn't like is to perform for people. Even when is is awake and kicking me like crazy, as soon as someone tries to feel him move he completely stops and hides. Somehow he seems to know when someone new is around and trying to feel him. Lately, he has been less shy around Morgan, but he will still stop moving with him every now and then. Even though he can be a stinker, all of my siblings were able to feel him move (after a bunch of false alarms) on Thanksgiving. My brother-in-law Cory and sister-in-law Renee also were lucky enough to get a kick.

For this next month, I'm looking forward to enjoying the Christmas season, and in the words of my doctor "eating whatever I want!"

24 Weeks (6 Months)!
You can almost see my bellybutton through my shirt. Soon its going to be time to push it back down with a band-aid.

The nursery is super dirty. The blue bin is filled with clothes from my aunt Jennifer. The bags are filled with toys from my mother-in-law Anita. The smurf was an early Christmas present to Henry from my Mom.  I think its safe to say I won't be buying any more clothes or toys!
