20 weeks- Pregnant and it's a ....!

Gosh! I can't believe that I am already halfway into my pregnancy and I am relieved that I am starting to get over my morning sickness. Yay! It's been nice because I have actually managed to do a little laundry, get out of the house beyond the corner store, and even do a few projects around the house. I love being productive but I am realizing I have to really take care of myself and take lots of snack breaks, and Nora loves snack breaks because they usually involve cookies or ice cream. The baby wants these things, so why deprive myself?  

I pinky-promised myself that I would try to take more maternity photos the second time around. I think I have all of two photos of my pregnancy with Nora and I am feeling the need to document my journey. Nora is now asking me if there is a baby inside and then walks over to Tim and points at his tummy and asks if there is a baby inside. I think she knows something is going on and I love seeing her think and figure things out. 

Big smooches from Nora and, oh yeah, I am having a boy! Crazy huh? We went to the ultrasound appointment and was pretty excited because I thought it was going to be a boy and Tim thought it would be a girl. The ultrasound tech was so great and funny. In the appointment, they take a ton of photos for me to take home and when she did the gender reveal, she drew a small dot with an arrow to indicate the male parts. Too funny! :)
I hope you're having a wonderful week!

oh yay a boy! as a mother of two of them they are pretty great.
i think i was much better at taking pictures the first time around... I pretty much dropped the ball the second time around.
it was really interesting watching D figure out the whole baby thing.. he was surprisingly very caring and concerned about me while I was pregnant.. giving me tummy rubs.
