Week 18

My little Bell Pepper!

This week week you 5 1/2 inches long from head to bottom. You weigh 7 ounces, you are growing so fast! I received a package from my sweet grandmother, your great-grandma, with some maternity clothes for work. I am so excited to wear them & show off my belly now that it is showing.

We celebrated Mother's Day with our parents this weekend. It was such a fun time to see everyone & celebrate the amazing mothers they are to your dad & I. I pray that you will look at me like a best friend like I do my parents. We have learned so much about parenting from our parents, we have been blessed!

We also decided this week that we are moving. Don't worry we are still going to live by the beach, even a little closer! We are moving to a place I know you are going to love! It has so much more space for you grow up in. It is in the cutes little community with little parks for you to play in, take the dogs for a walk & learn to ride your bike at. I keep thinking about how cute your room is going to look, I can't wait to start working on it!

My friend Jorden who just had her little boy last week sent me this text this week. "Its amazing how fast it goes, it feel like I just share the pregnancy news & now he's here in my arms!! Cherish the journey my friend." I think this was an amazing reminder for me. I find myself wishing it was October & you were here with me but I need to enjoy today as well. So that has been my focus this week to enjoy all the changes in you & me during this 40 week journey. Thank you Jor for that reminder, love you friend!

Stay healty in there little one! Start getting ready for our next ultrasound in 2 weeks, I need you to cooperate so we can find out if you are a little boy or girl! I can't wait for the big reveal!!

Love you more then you can know!

Your Mommy
