19 weeks

Here we go- just about to be heading downhill!

I'm still getting sick. Today, to be exact, has been the most recent. Bloody noses have been a frequent occurrence and feeling nauseous in the morning still, is not unusual.
Boikehh
Baby's heartrate is 144 still and has even since about 12ish weeks. The first ultrasound at 10 weeks 5 days was 177.

Weight gain? I have gained 3.5 lbs. started at 134.5 and am now 138.

Cravings? I really like cereal again, sour path kids, and I'm a fan of anything sweet.

Aversions? I really do not care for the smokin sweet chips I was obsessed with for some time.

Names? Currently we have 2 girl names picked out: Molly Katherine or Julianne Elise (maybe Grace). As for a boy name it's Patrick James, although I prefer Jack.

Baby kicks? Still nothing major. I've felt stuff but it's been minor.

Best day

Claire came running up to me at daycare today saying, "mommy, mommy, mommy" as he proceeded to give me the sweetest hug ever. My how things have changed:) it was te beat feeling ever.

On another positive note, nanny is stable and in good sprits. She has rehab to go through, but could be home by Christmas! Fingers crossed!!

Claire at dinner tonight with daddy!

She also has a future in music. The songs she knows already:

No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Lastly animal sounds:
Dog woof woof
Kitty cat meow
Lion roar
Duck quack (sometimes)

A thankful 2012!

So last night Claire was playing with a cheap magnadoodle from the dollar store and it was fun. Next thing I know the tip (a small magnet) is missing. We come to suspect she swallowed it. So after calling the pedi, we wake her up and take her to the ER at 9 pm. After an X-ray, we find out she never swallowed it!!! Thank goodness. I am pretty sure that will not be our last trip to the ER with Miss C Beth!

Happy Thanksgiving, all.

A family affair

We had so much fun getting out pictures taken as a family this year. Claire was quite the diva and we were amazed how Pamela was able to capture Claire in a nutshell of 30ish images. They're beautiful!
