{Week 21} Baby Kicks

I love feeling my baby move. 

I started VERY faintly feeling her at 17.5 weeks.  She has been a really faint kicker, usually right in my bladder everytime.  When we went to the ultrasound, the tech was surprised that I haven't felt her more just because of the amount that she was moving the whole ultrasound. 

This week, her kicks are becoming stronger and more frequent.  I love the reminder that my sweet little baby girl is in me growing and developing.  I love that I get these special moments with her.

Last night while trying to go to sleep.  She decided that it was time to start moving.  She had started kicking my in my left side, where I had never felt her kick before.  I was able to hurry and grab Jason's hand and put it on there just in time for her to give the kicking show of her life.  She had never moved around so much and so she knew that her Daddy was there.  I loved getting so share our baby with Jason for a moment before he nodded off to sleep.

I am so excited to get my baby girl here and in my arms.
I am already so smitten by her.

First Dentist trip

Today, we took Emerson to the dentist for the first time.  He did a great job.  At first, the hygentist introduced him to all of the instuments and told him exactly what she was going to do.  Then he got to choose a pair of sunglasses to wear while she did the cleaning.  Then she cleaned and flossed his teeth.  He did great!  He just didn't like the light shining on his face, even with the sunglasses.  I was so proud of him for being so good while sitting on the chair. 

We had been preparing him for the trip for a while, and he was so proud when the dentist said his mouth was nice and healthy.  Then the dentist gave him a bunch of prizes, one being a timer to know that he has brushed long enough.  He loved it. 

Here he is with his newly cleaned, cavity free smile!

It's A...

It took Emerson to the ultrasound with me--just in case the baby ended up being a girl.  He has been informing us for a few weeks that if the baby is a girl, then he won't be a good boy anymore.  I have been having trouble with this.  Letting him know that I don't get to choose.  So I thought that it would be good for him to hear it from someone else and see the baby on the screen.  He was so excited to see the baby.  When the tech said "It's a Girl", I said "YAY!".  Then Emerson immediately responded with a "Oh...".  He was definately disappointed, but is getting more excited as time passes a little.  He loved watching the baby GIRL move and jump. 

She is a mover.  At one point the tech said "This baby is a bit on the naughty side" because she wouldn't stop moving long enough to get measurements.  I am so excited for our little girl to join our family.  She is going to be so loved...even if Emerson is not going to be a good boy anymore.

{20 Weeks} Mommy and Emerson

I am so lucky to be Emerson and soon to be baby's mom.  I am so in love with my two babies.  They are the world to me.
I love that Emerson is already in love with this baby.  He sings to the baby, tells the baby jokes, and just loves on the baby all the time.  He is going to be a great big brother. 
Me at 20 weeks. 
HALF WAY THERE!  I can't wait to hold my baby in my arms.
