12 Weeks

Friday, January 21st marked 12 weeks. According to Babycenter, the most dramatic development this week: reflexes. Your baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, the toes will curl, the eye muscles will clench, and the mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if you prod your abdomen, your baby will squirm in response, although you won't be able to feel it. The intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into the abdominal cavity about now, and the kidneys will begin excreting urine into the bladder. Meanwhile, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in your baby's brain, synapses are forming furiously. The face looks unquestionably human: The eyes have moved from the sides to the front of the head, and the ears are right where they should be. From crown to rump, your baby is just over 2 inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.

Kaitlynn and I played in the snow for a little while.


We went to MawMaw's to take her to an appointment. Kaitlynn napped in the car. Dave met us at MawMaw's. We went to the mall, ate dinner, walked around and Kaitlynn played in the play area. When we got back to MawMaw's, Dave's car wouldn't start. Later that evening, Kaitlynn had diarrhea and was up a lot of the night.

Saturday, the 22nd, Kaitlynn was feeling better, so she went to swim class. After swim class, she took a shower in the locker room. I could not get her out of the shower. She was having too much fun! Afterwards we ate lunch and met Tia, Annabelle and Alayna at McDonald's for the girls to play. When we came home, I took a nap because I was just so exhausted.

Sunday, the 23rd, we missed church because we were all tired and Kaitlynn's diarrhea came back the night before. Later we went to MawMaw's to try to get the car started, but it still wouldn't start.

Monday, the 24th, I had a doctor's appointment. I had to miss Sacred Romance class since we only had the 1 car. I hated missing, but it just wasn't an option to go. At this point, I had a headache for 2 days and couldn't get rid of it. Dave brought gatorade, caffeine soda and peanut m&ms home for me so I could see if any of that would get rid of the headache.

18th Week of Dance and 21st Week of Preschool

Tuesday, January 18th, Kaitlynn attended dance class. Miss Julie gave Kaitlynn a thank you card for the Thanksgiving goodies and Christmas gifts. After dance, we came home, had lunch and got ready for preschool. Kaitlynn chose an apple and raisins for her snack.

Wednesday, the 19th, Kaitlynn prepared for preschool and packed her snack (cheez-its and 2 oatmeal cookies).
The daily schedule said they created a Venn diagram to compare and contrast 2 versions of "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears," made letters using Wikki-sticks at the project table, played a giant bear board game using stuffed animals as pawns, played in the gym and in music listened to "Bean Bag Boogie."

After preschool, Kaitlynn took a nap in the car, while driving to MawMaw's to take her to an appointment. We ate dinner and went to the grocery store because there was a Winter Weather Advisory that evening and we received snow.

Thursday, the 20th, school was called off due to the snow.

11 Weeks, Swim Class and Date Night

Friday, January 14th, I was 11 weeks pregnant. According to Babycenter, the baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. The hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under the gums, and some of the bones are beginning to harden. The baby's already busy kicking and stretching, and his/her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as the body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that the diaphragm is forming.

I also took a photo shoot of Kaitlynn for Valentine's photo cards. The first 8 pictures are with her "This Little Princess is Going to be a Big Sister!" shirt / outfit, since we needed to get some good ones with her wearing that. The other 3 are in her Valentine's outfit.


We made the announcement of our pregnancy to the facebook world!

We went to MawMaw's house and took her to an appointment. While she was at the appointment, Kaitlynn and I went to Yo My Goodness for some frozen yogurt. Yummy! Later, Dave met us for dinner at Pasta House.
We went to Walgreens and Kaitlynn talked MawMaw into buying her a doctor's kit. Kaitlynn needed it for the new baby!


Saturday, the 15th, Kaitlynn had her level II / Goldfish swim class. She did great! We took naps afterwards. Later Kaitlynn went to MawMaw's so Dave and I could have a date night. We haven't had a date night since our anniversary in November, unless you count the almost 2 day stay at the hospital in December! We went to Casa Gallardo for dinner and then to see "Little Fockers." We both really liked the movie. It was hilarious!

Before bed, we read Phillipians to prepare for a new series starting at church this weekend.

It seems a lot of my friends are interested / are going to see the NKOTBSB tour. I was really into the NKOTB, but I have no interest in going to this concert. Am I alone in this? Maybe I am just getting old!

Sunday, the 16th, we attended church. We started a new series, Life Audacious, that will unpack Paul's letter to the Phillipians.
In Kaitlynn's class,they learned that "Jesus loves us all the time." They heard the story of Jesus and his disciples (Luke 5-6, Matthew 5 and 26:20-30).

After church, I cleaned / organized the kitchen table, closet and counter and the master bedroom.

Monday, the 17th, Kaitlynn attended a MLM Playdate at Olympiad. She had so much fun! Afterwards, she asked if she could do gymnastics.

We ate lunch, then went to MawMaw's to take her to an appointment. While MawMaw was in the appointment, we went to Yo My Goodness for frozen yogurt.

Dave watched Kaitlynn so I could attend my Sacred Romance class at church. I started reading the first few chapters of "The Sacred Romance" and kind of felt like I was missing something or not understanding something, but the class really helped clear that up. I am really looking forward to getting to know the ladies at my table and unpacking "The Sacred Romance."
