Happy 23 Weeks - and Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Daniel and Mommy are up early watching cartoons while Daddy sleeps in a little (since Mommy got to have off Veteran's day!).

So what's new...hmmm...well you've definitely been growing more and more, and getting your move on! You're pretty low, so every kick seems like you're going to punch out through the bottom. I'm sure that's not going to happen, but it's still sort of weird. You're most active at night while we're watching TV, and pretty quiet during the day.

Next week we have another appointment (24 week or "6 month" appointment) where we have the big glucose test. Not really looking forward to that, although you'll probably enjoy it you fuel to jump around like a jumping bean!

The week after starts some traveling! Your first time on a plane will be on the inside! We're going to San Antonio for a meeting, and leaving Daniel and Daddy to bachelor it up for a few days. Then right after we get back we're going to see Grandma and Grandpa Stone's house for early Christmas and a wedding! That one all of us are going on!

So definitely exciting (and busy!) things to come! Already getting your registry started and all of that good stuff...stay cozy and warm inside! :)

A Bit Overdue...But...

We found out on October 20th that you are a BOY! The ultrasound went very well, and after a long wait through the whole thing (not that the ultrasound wasn't fun in and of itself!) up on the screen came confirmation!

So out comes the book of boy names! It's kind of weird (but we're still early!) that we don't have a solid name picked out for you yet, but we are getting close. I'm sure if your big brother knew that he was getting a baby brother he'd be excited (but pretty sure Daniel doesn't realize what is to come!).

Onto other things...the ultrasound was great, and you're growing right on schedule (or a couple days ahead) just like your brother. The kicks and other movements have gotten more pronounced as well, which is definitely exciting too!

On Sunday the 24th (10-24...easy to remember since it's your mommy's favorite number!) you were actually kicking so hard that daddy can now feel it! Very exciting! The moving and shaking hasn't stopped, and you have done some full on body rolls in that cramped little space.

Mommy is doing pretty well, aside from waddling pretty solidly by the end of the day. Your big brother has wanted to go for long walks after daycare (before picking up Daddy) which I'm sure doesn't help with the soreness. But at least this week there's not much overtime for Daddy, which means we all get to relax at home!

Another doctor's appointment this coming Friday, and this Thursday you will be officially halfway to your due date (20 weeks!). Time is really flying!
