22 Weeks!

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. I guess chasing a toddler around all day helps with that! Boy do I look forward to his nap time. It's the only time of day that I can work on my many projects for the new nursery. I wish I could take a nap when he does, but I can never fall asleep!

What's going on with baby love...
-About 11 inches and about 1 whole pound! She's growing fast, I wonder if she'll be anything like her big brother in that department.
-Lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, making her look more like a human than an alien :-)
-Tiny tooth buds are developing underneath her gums.
-Her eyes have formed, but still lack pigment in her irises.

I have been feeling her kick and wiggle around a lot! Joe even got to feel her a couple of weeks ago. Just this week I have been able to feel her when I am sitting up. I think feeling the baby move around is my absolute favorite part of being pregnant. It's a reminder that my body is doing something so amazing!

Lately I have been feeling great. No sickness, not much fatigue, and all of the food aversions have almost gone away. I have been craving a pumpkin pie for about a week, so I made one last night and enjoyed a slice before bed. It was soooo good! Satisfied my craving instantly. I also made loaded baked potato soup. It was delicious and perfect for a cold day. It was only 42 degrees here yesterday. Hubby even bragged it was the best soup he has ever had!

Have a Blessed Day!
