Hi there! Remember me??? It's been almost 5 months since I've written anything on this 'ol blog and I have to say I've missed it! I'm not saying I'm back for good, but hopefully I'll be posting a little more often than every 5 months!
Let's see, what's happened in the last 5 months...? Well... Emerson turned ONE! Zach is half way through is first year of residency! Two of Zach's sisters got engaged! We made it through the holiday season in one piece! The Seahawks just made it to the Super Bowl AGAIN! And................. We are expecting Baby No. 2 (fondly referred to as the Gummy Bear)!!! It's been a busy 5 months and while the first trimester was rough with Emerson, it has been equally exhausting if not more with the Gummy Bear. I thought being pregnant was tiring enough but being pregnant with a one year old running around is flat out exhausting. At least I haven't been nearly as sick with Gummy Bear.
Wondering why we call it the Gummy Bear? Here's your proof! :)
This was our 9 week ultrasound and I was so amazed that it looked like a little gummy bear! With Emerson our first ultrasound was at 8 weeks and she just looked like a little bean/alien. This little guy was already growing arm and leg buds! So awesome.
We just had our 20 week ultrasound and got to find out that we are having a baby BOY!!! We are so excited! I'm still a little in shock because whattheheckdoidowithaboy?!?! :)
I had a feeling that it would be a boy this time around just based on how different this pregnancy has been already. I wasn't as sick in the first trimester (and halfway through the second) as I was with Emerson (thank goodness!). I've been wanting more salty foods instead of sweet. My skin has been freaking out - very dry and my complexion is not great. I remember my complexion was amazing with Emerson. And some other little things that have just been different that I can't remember right now. :)
Since I'm already so behind on this pregnancy with my weekly bump photos and my interviews, I thought I'd do a little catch up! I doubt I'll be up for doing them every week like I did with Emerson (how nice it was to have all that free time!) but I'll try to keep up every few weeks.
