Last night, Mike felt the baby move for the first time. I love noting this things down! It's awesome because he also felt Weston move at 21 weeks! Speaking of Weston, I would just like to record what he ate yesterday....He had some Ponsit, a ring pop, mashed potatoes and ice cream (Cake Batter from Coldstone). Seems that my little man has quite an adult appetite! I'm just glad he'll eat something. He does not want his baby food anymore besides the cereal and fruit (which he also had yesterday, along with his formula.) Anyway, he's nine months and probably in a week when we go to the doctor, I will get in trouble for already giving him an egg, banana nut cheerios and yogurt! I don't care though! He doesn't have any allergies and he's eating so that's all that matters to me!

Yesterday was our mid-pregnancy sonogram appointment and everything looks great! Most importantly the baby was able and willing to show us proudly that he is, in fact, a BOY! I got to take home so many pictures. The baby is right on target as far as growth. His heart rate was 166, seems soda jumps it up a bit (I had some cream soda before the sonogram!) He weighs about 13 oz right now which is awesome! It's so crazy to imagine that this little 13 oz human being has all these people parts already! God truly is the most amazing designer ever! So we are going to have a little Grayson (still deciding on the middle name) come August (or July probably). So that's the news on this pregnancy for now. More updates in two weeks when I go back for my next prenatal appointment.
P.S. I don't know if I mentioned it yet, but the blood work that was taken at my last appointment came back A-OK!
I will be taking pictures of our new living room and posting them. We just finally completed putting things together and cleaning up! I love it! Lots of play area for Weston. We still need to mount the TV on the wall but we have to call DirectTV and get a cable extension first. Hopefully that won't take forever and costs a million dollars!
On another good note...I'm so excited about the weather getting better! I cannot wait to take Weston outside to play! He hates being cooped up here in the house and I think my days will be much easier if he has other things to do!

Yesterday we had appointment no. 4 for Baby Dos and saw Dr. Hoffman. Baby's heart rate was 147 so I'm guessing it was the Sprite last time that made it 166. :) I had my blood drawn for the screening test and will get those results in about 10 days. And I've gained 5 pounds this past month. So altogether, with the 3 pound loss, I've only gained 2 pounds in the first 18 weeks of my pregnancy which is pretty awesome! So everything is looking really good! On a sort of sad note, Mike's work may be switching insurance to Kaiser Permanente which means that I will have to switch doctors in the middle of my pregnancy which really sucks because I absolutely adore my doctors. I'm sure I'll live though and the decision isn't final yet. The good thing is that I can squeeze in one more appointment with Hoffman and Associates and I will still get to keep my sonogram appointment on March 20th since the change won't happen until April. So more updates on that later! :)
