Baby Update: 15 weeks

Yea Yea I'm a terrrible blogger.  I can only imagine it will get worse as the year progresses.  I've also become a terrible emailer.  I used to dislike those people who took days and days and weeks to respond to a simple email, but that has become me.  I don't get to sit in front of a computer anymore so its not so easy.  But enough of this down talk, let's talk about fun Babies!

So we are 15 weeks along now and the 2nd trimester is going well so far.  I still want to go to sleep about 9:15pm but I've been feeling pretty good overall.  Baby is about 4-5 inches long and weighs between 3-5 ounces right now.  My app says the baby is the size of an avocado.  I love avocados, or at least did for a while.  Avocados are not currently on my favorite food list.  I'm sure that craving will come back at some point.  I've always been a streaky eater.

So do you want to see some pictures?

Let's start from the beginning.
7 Weeks
We like the call it "the mouse". 

9 Weeks
Finally looking less like a mouse and more like an alien baby.

13 Weeks 4 days
When I look at this picture, I think "aww, cute baby", not "hey that is LITERALLY in my abdomen."  It's a very weird phenomenon.
I know it says 12 weeks 5 days, but the baby is measuring big (13 weeks 4 days) and has been at each session.  I think our due date will be changing.  I'm supposed to be asking my OB about it at my next appointment per the specialist recommendation.  So I call the baby by what he/she has been measuring consistently.

Baby Steele wants to say, "Hi!"!
Sweet little hand.

I've been awful about taking belly pictures.  My awesome sister-in-law bought me these adorable stickers that say, "12 weeks, 16 weeks, 20 weeks, etc."  
I actually didn't get to take my 12 weeks photo until almost 13 weeks, but I'm trying to do better.  And yes these are cell phone pictures.  We tried to get a quick picture before work and discovered that the camera battery was dead.

Too many pictures I know, but Paisley was so excited about baby, I had to add this one.

15 weeks!
More like a stomach roll than a baby bump, but baby is definitely growing.
I can make it look big if I hold both sides with my hands.  Not sure how big my stomach looked when I did this before I was pregnant, but I feel like its bigger.

Hope everyone wanting an update has gotten their fill.  I will try to be better about posting, but I am one sleepy momma with about 50 things on her plate right now...So I make not promises.  We are in midst of the 3 week lull between our doctors appointments.  I don't wish the time away, but I am always excited for an update with our OB and getting to see our sweet babe at our specialist.  

Anyone have any guesses on what Baby Steele is?   Boy or girl?
Everyone seems to have different reasoning for their guess so far... the pictures look like a ...  You look like you're having ....  So I would love to hear your guesses.
We should be finding out in the next few weeks.

Shhhhh, Don't Tell!

Just Kidding!  We couldn't expect you to keep something so big a secret!

We are going to have a baby!

Kind of a creepy picture isn't it?  It looks like B!..... J/K.
You heard me correctly!  Come October, there will be another little Steele running around.  Yes, another!  Paisley Blue Steele, our puppy, takes offense that you didn't think of her as our firstborn.
Our bundle of joy is due October 25th.  Although right now, baby is measuring closer to the 19th, so we will see.   We are excited to finally be 13 weeks...tomorrow anyway.

Okay, have you stopped screaming?!  Oh, that was just me?  Okay. I'm done.  

We found out on the day of love.  Valentine's Day.  Which was very lucky for me considering I already had a gift ready which turned into the perfect way to tell B.  On our first Valentine's Day, I shipped in B's favorite Kentucky soft drink, Ale-8, and tagged it with all the reasons I loved him.  Cute I know.  I had already decided to recreate that gift again this year and had 12 Ale-8's waiting for me.  So I quickly whipped up some hearts on my cricut machine and got to work.  I tagged the box with this statement "I love you because...."

On the last Ale-8 I wrote...
"You are going to be the greatest dad.  No really, You are going to be a dad!"

He didn't believe me at first, but as you can tell he was very excited.

Paisley was excited too!
Yes.  We let Paisley put the pregnancy test in her mouth.  No I didn't pee on that part.  Gross.

She loves looking at pictures of the baby. 
She loves to put her nose as close as she can to the picture.
Sorry for my appearance.  This is how we spend Saturday mornings...playing with Paisley in our bed in our PJ's.

We are so excited and thankful for great friends who can be excited with us!

Spring Has Sprung And Its Busy!

Yes I have been gone for like a month and half...or so.  Here is a bit of what we have been up to...

B had a Sunday off at church and we spent a fun day together with breakfast at Frothy Monkey.
The best vanilla latte I've ever had.  I absolutely suggest a Sunday date there.

I've spent some quality time with the cutest west tennessee 1 year old around, Cubby.
Isn't he cute dancing in his hummer?

Trying to enjoy our crazy almost 10 month old german shepherd, Paisley.
Today we read outside and played.  She loves being outside!

Last but not least, last weekend we went to Murray for this big guys 4th birthday!
 Classic 4 year old face!
Caden's favorite part of the party...his shark goggles!

We've been busy these past few weeks enjoying this beautiful weather!  Hope you guys have been too!
