16 weeks

16 weeks pregnant with Reid
 Now.... I am starting to see a small difference between my pregnancy with J and L and this pregnancy... I was for sure a little "puffier" with J and L... but I am guessing since Jack and Lucy ripped my muscles wide open... I am just showing a tad more than your average 16 week pregnant person.. but that is A-Ok with me! At least the baby is growing healthy! :) 

16 weeks pregnant with Jack and Lucy
 We did find out some super exciting news this weekend! My next ultrasound at the Doctor's office isn't until August 6th, and I just simply could not handle waiting any longer before finding out the sex of this baby! I am AWFUL about things like this... and so is Cal... we can't hardly stand a wrapped present under the Christmas tree! ha! So, we went to a place here that you pay to get the ultrasound and immediately HE showed us that he is in fact a BOY!!!!! His name will be Reid but his full name will be announced later! :)
I am not sure if this is tacky or not.. but here is evidence of his "boy parts" ! ha
 ... and his cute little profile!
 Jack and Lucy did this little announcement for family and friends! Lucy looks like she is saying, "YAY, I'm still the only princess!!!"

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: just over 4 and a half inches long and about 3.5 ounces, the size of a avocado
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gained 2 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular.
Gender: It's a BOY!!!
Movement: I have felt him moving all around these past couple of weeks. He feels like he is doing a little dance in there! :)
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good! I am just tired of sleeping on my side... i love my tummy or my back.
What I miss: um... WINE!!! (and smoked salmon)
Cravings: I have craved pickles.. what?!? such a cliche'... but it is true! ha! I will literally stand at the refrigerator and drink the pickle juice.. it is like nectar! LOL
Symptoms: The throwing up really did stop around 12-13 weeks! I was so so so happy!! I don't           even feel pregnant right now, except for maybe being a little more tired than normal in the afternoons! The 107 degree heat isn't helping with that, though... ha 
Best Moment this month: watching the ultrasound and seeing him move all around, and of course,show us that he is in fact, a boy!

July 4

Happy Fourth of July!

We went out with the Rays the night before the 4th for part of our 4th of July celebration...
I can barely hold the both of them now. Pictures like this are few and far between these days.
 nice finger, Lucy...
 These kids are obsessed with their Daddy! Lord, have mercy... I am just minced meat when he is around! ha
 We went to Regatta Boathouse... the kids loved feeding the ducks and the little water fountain outside of the book store. (Well, all of the kids except Lucy... she has a thing against water) ha
 Jack, Lucy, Caroline and Madeline
Jack has a "small" crush on Caroline... bahaha
