Half way there! 20 weeks

Baby boy's profile (see his head on the left? His hand is by his nose!)
Baby's foot - he has 5 toes!
This is the baby's face looking right at the camera. The doctor said it looks normal for 20 weeks but she kept calling it a Halloween mask! How rude! :)

The 20 week sonogram today confirmed that we are having a boy! He is very healthy. We got to see the 4 chambers of his heart and a healthy brain. We also got to see his kidneys, stomach, spine, and leg bones! The only problem was he was so active that he wouldn't give us a good, clear profile picture to print out. I told him he better not be all squirmy like his dad and make funny faces in all of his pictures! I've started feeling the baby kick more lately. Ty gets jealous and excited and always wants to feel it too! At Sing Song this weekend, we sat near a huge speaker and all of our chairs vibrated. The baby started kicking like crazy whenever there was a loud song or lots of vibrations :)

Also, I've gained 9 pounds in the last month!! Yikes!! I think I've been eating too much junk food and not exercising enough. Our wonderful friends have been throwing us all sorts of going away dinners which have been good on the taste buds, but not kind to the wasteline! Now that I'm not working (I quit my job a few weeks early to pack before we move to Tampa) I can focus on exercising daily and trying to only gain the recommended one pound a week.

We went to Abilene this weekend and had a fun time with my family and the Purcells. We also saw Ally and her beautiful daughter Camden. I think we won't go back to anymore Sing Song's until the Kojies decide they want to beat the Siggies or the Moonies beat the Gammas. :) Too bad we didn't get any pics of the weekend!

Moving update

Not much going on here these days, except getting ready for the move to Tampa. We have a moving company scheduled to come pack our house on Feb. 28th! Yikes... that's soon! My last day of work is next week (Feb 15th), so I'll have a few days to pack the house before the movers come. We are still working on finding a place to live in Tampa... but hopefully we'll nail that down next week. Our friends have already started planning us going away dinners.... which have been really good food, but sad to think of leaving all our wonderful friends behind! Please pray for God to provide a supportive community in FL to help us raise this baby!! Btw, my next ultra sound is the Tuesday after Valentines, so stay posted for a pic.
