Baby Dos-Appointment #2

I'm slacking as my second prenatal appointment was January 7th but I wanted to record the experience for myself. I lost three pounds. Dr. Erikson wasn't happy. She was even less happy when I told her I was still nursing. So now we are kicking weaning into high gear. It's going pretty well right now. Weston just won't take the bottle from me yet but I'm hoping after 3-4 days of taking only formula from Mike, he will take it from me. Back to the appointment...we weren't able to hear the baby's heartbeat with the doppler so I got to see the baby again. The heart looks just fine. Dr. Erikson said that the baby is kind of sitting behind my pelvic bone, low down, making it hard to hear the heartbeat. I go back to the doctors February 6 (I think) and Mike will be with me this time. I'm really hoping we can hear the heartbeat together for the first time. I'll be sure to record it right after Weston's on our tape! I can't believe I'm already into my second trimester. It's really been flying by. I guess when you are entertaining a seven month old nonstop things do that.

Speaking of Weston...he's doing so well. He gives kisses on command which is the sweetest EVER!!! He's starting to get brave with lunging forward for things, so I see crawling occuring in the very near future. I can't wait til he's on the move. I know he'll be into everything so I'm definitely going to have to do some childproofing soon. I also just realized that of all the places we have taken our little guy, we have not taken him to the Inner Harbor. Pretty much a sin, I know. So a trip will definitely be in the near future. I'm also hoping to take him to Florida late March, early April. He needs to see his Aunt Angel again so I'm looking forward to that!

That's about all I have time for now. I will be updating in about two weeks after my next appointment!
