Eliana making conversation...

"Mommy! I like the spice (in the dinner). That's because I'm a big girl! But I'm a little small. But I'm going to keep growing and growing until I'm a big girl as tall as you!! And the baby's going to get bigger and bigger cause your tummy's going to get bigger..."

Wait a little longer...

I was supposed to have my gender-telling ultrasound today, but I had to reschedule until next week. So sorry to keep you waiting! I feel like this pregnancy is going by so quickly. I'm already at 19 weeks! I've gotten some pregnancy-pics requests, and these aren't the greatest, but they come with a cute story... Eliana has been giving the baby hugs for a while now. She'll point to my stomach and say, with increasing excitement and volume, "Mommy, I like your baby. When she comes out, I'll give her a kiss. And then I'll have a FRIEND!!" She's practically screeching and jumping up and down by the time she gets to 'friend'. It's very cute. But yesterday she didn't want to wait to give the baby a kiss, so she lifted up my shirt and started kissing my belly. I had to grab the camera. :)

Eliana woke up really early this morning, so while I was attempting (without success) to get a little more sleep, I heard her and our good friend Heath (who had come back to the house with Stu from the rec center) having a conversation downstairs. Eliana was not happy about her daddy leaving for work...

Heath asked Eliana: "What does your daddy do at work?"
Eliana replied: "He makes money so we can live in this house."

So very funny. As much as I just wanted to be asleep, it made me laugh.

Baby Flutters!!

Last night as I was lying down to go to sleep, I felt the first baby movements! "Quickening", as they call it. I don't really get that term. Anyway, it made me smile. Feeling those little (later, not so little!) reminders of life is my favorite part of being pregnant. It just amazes me that there's a life growing inside of me. Not to mention, I still find it so weird! I'm now about 18 weeks along.

I had a check-up last Friday and Eliana came along. She was very excited to hear the baby's heart beat. The doctor jokingly said, "It sounds like a boy!", and Eliana didn't like that comment very much! She disagreed. We'll find out if it's a boy or girl in less than two weeks! Maybe we'll let you know. ;)
