Bumpdate: Week 16

Week 16 according to

How Big is Baby?: 
The size of an avocado! Now, she's about 4.6 inches long and weighs about 3.5 ounces, and she's big enough that your doctor may be able to hear her heartbeat.

Your Baby at 16 Weeks:

  • She's listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in her ears.
  • She's growing hair, lashes and eyebrows.
  • And she's forming taste buds.

Week 16 according to me:

I feel exhausted all of the time. I'm still dealing with nausea and vomiting, but it's not constant all day anymore so that's a huge plus.

No particular cravings, but I feel like I am eating all of the time. I get hungry about every two hours. Even if I was stuffed to the gills, in about two hours I'll be hungry again! Like, stomach growling hungry. I don't remember being this way when I was pregnant with Sydney. 

I don't know if it's possible this soon, but I swear I felt a big kick on Saturday. I was leaning up against a chair and felt what I think was a big kick right where the chair was pushing in on my stomach; baby must not have liked that too much. 

We are looking forward to my appointment next month when we'll finally get to find out what we're having! I really don't care either way, but it's always exciting to find out.

Halloween Party Time!

If you know my daughter, then you know she is obsessed with kitties, has been for almost a year now.  So I knew exactly what costume to get for Halloween this year...

I was a little worried that she might not like wearing it, but it turns out I had no reason to worry. She LOVES this kitty outfit and wants to wear it all the time.

Our friend Keri had the awesome idea to throw a halloween bash for all of the kiddos. It was SO much fun! We all did one game and brought some halloween themed snacks to share. There was a cakewalk, a pinata, pumpkin and cookie decorating, ballon pop games, apple games. and the classic but always fun game of stick-your-hand-in-the-bucket-and-guess-what-nasty-thing-you're-touching.

(Sorry about the picture quality. It was the best I could do at night with flash.)

I am amazed that Sydney did not get sick that night. Every time I turned around she was at the food table, swiping some cheese balls, jello, cookies, chips...whatever she could get her hands on. We would be outside playing a game, I would turn my back, and she would literally be sprinting to the garage where the food was. That little kitty cat ate for three hours straight.

We had a great time! Thanks Keri and Shaun and everyone who brought food and games! I know Sydney will be back next year, if only for the cheese balls and jello!

Pumpkin Patch - 9 Months

We finally got around to taking Cameron's nine month pictures! Better late than never! We went to the pumpkin patch for most of them and also took a few at home with the same setup as last time.

Happy nine (well, technically ten) months Cameron!
