This past week we went to the doctor for our 16 week visit. Everything went well, and I’m happy to report, I only gained one pound! It took awhile for the doctor to find your heartbeat because you were moving around so much. For some reason, I have a feeling this is going to be a pattern. From everything we’ve seen, you seem to be a very active little baby. I haven’t felt you move yet, but that should be happening in the next couple of weeks. Still no major cravings, just less self control—especially with sweets!I We also found out that you’re going to have another new friend, baby Senefelder is going to arrive about two months after you! My pants are starting to get pretty tight–especially when I sit down. I’m still wearing pre-pregnancy pants, but keeping them buttoned with a hair tie or the belly band.
Other news to report, last week Daddy surprised me by painting the nursery. Another item checked off the list. We also found a rocking chair for the room and should be getting it in a couple of weeks. Next step is to paint the changing table. Other than that, things have been pretty low key. I haven’t been traveling for awhile and we had the weekend off from weddings. Your cousins Ashley and Courtney slept over and we had a Harry Potter slumber party. We also were able to relax on Sunday by laying by the pool.
This weekend we’re headed to Brainard to shoot a wedding and then have an engagement session on Sunday so a busy weekend ahead! Also, just a cute little story to remember. Daddy was playing with my tummy the other day and flicking it and I go “What are you doing” and your Daddy responds, “We’re playing, would you leave us along”. It was very sweet and I think a little forshadowing to the future. Your Daddy is really just a big kid and he is going to have so much fun with you—I can’t wait to watch!
