21 Weeks!


You have been growing & moving so much this week. I can't believe you are already the length of a carrot. You are 10 1/2 inches long, that is exactly half the length your sister was when she was born. We are so proud of your progress & how easy you are right now. We have a lot of transition going on in our little family right now but you are being a good little girl.

I am really starting to show to the point where people are not afraid to ask when I'm due. I like this so much more then when they are wondering if I have just been gaining some weight. I feel like this pregnancy is starting to go by faster, we are more then half way there. July will be here before we know it!

Keep growing little one, we are praying for you & thinking of you often. Lots of love!!

20 Weeks!


We are half way Zoey!! I feel like time is flying by so fast, but at the same time I feel like July is so far away. I promise to enjoy the next 20 weeks & continue to dream of what your sweet little face will look like. We had another ultrasound this week & everyone says your profile looks like Hallee. You two are going to be the cutest little sisters!!

You are the length of a banana, 10 inches long. You sister was 21 inches when she was born so you are about 1/2 there. Also your sis weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces...please don't get much bigger then that :) We are praying you can already feel how very loved you are. We pray for you often & I know that you can hear our voices, know God loves you! Hallee is so excited for your arrival she kisses & talks to my belly, get used to your chatty sister.

Keep growing & moving around in there, we enjoy feeling your presence. Love you so much sweet girl!

19 Weeks!


Sweet Zoey you have been such a good travel companion this week! We were in Seattle & then Minnesota & you were so good to me. You were gracious with our random eating schedule as well as letting me stay up past my normal bed time. While we were in Minnesota visiting the beautiful Tisor family I was able to hold cute little Evan & dream about you being that small & in my arms soon. I promise that you will get to spend a lot of time with them once you are here, they are wonderful.

You are growing strong in there babe & very healthy. You are the size of an heirloom tomato, already 6 inches long! We feel you moving around in there all the time these days. I can also tell you are getting bigger cause my belly is really starting to grow. I will take the extra pounds know that you are healthy. Next week we get to see your sweet face in our ultrasound, we are looking forward to that. We love you very much!!

Your Mom

Minnesota was one of those trips where you walk away feeling refreshed & longing for more. We spent a week with our dear friends the Tisor's & it could not have been better. It was refresing to spend time with those friends who truly know you. It was so much fun to see the kids play together, Hallee & Asher got along so well. Hallee called Asher A-chew, it sounded like she was sneezing, love it! They are 5 months apart & Evan & Zoey will also be 5 months apart, so fun!

Of course we visited Mall of America,

lets just say WOW!

They have a theme park inside
