pregnancy: week 16

Week 16
1 “Sprout” baby app downloaded on the iPad
3 pairs of maternity jeans tried on (one fit great, but it's probably too early to bite the bullet and get them!)
4 dinner guests
10+ servings of natural tonic water + cran-raspberry juice 
8 minutes on the phone with the insurance company, attempting to figure out the best place to have our anatomic ultrasound
2 books received from sweet local friends

I have gained about 5 pounds in the second trimester (!!!) Looking at the scale is actually startling since I went about 13+ weeks without gaining any weight at all. Guess I better get used to this!

Readers: I'd love to know who you are and what you're interested in reading. Leave a comment introducing yourselves and letting me know some topics or questions I should write about. Thanks, y'all!


  1. I can't believe it took me so long to find this, but I'm here! I'm just psyched to read about (and see!!!) your progress since we don't get to catch up very often. =)

  2. So fun! I love the updates. You and Joel are going to be wonderful parents! Now I know why Joel seemed so eager to hold Timmy at the end of the school year. Getting ready for his own! :)

    1. Yes, Bethany, he was practicing. Though I think he would have been eager regardless. He was pretty happy to report he had gotten a turn with Timothy :)
