25 weeks...

And Maddie was feeling left out of the photo shoot!

(I wore this same shirt for our 15 week picture.  Think I've grown much?)

We are 25 weeks!  15 to go!!!

According to Baby Center, Little Hoot is:

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

25 week highlights:
  • Cravings-not much of anything specific, I just like to eat.
  • Belly Button-according to Robert-holding steady at 95% outie.  It's the top part that is sticking out and not the bottom--Robert says it looks like a buck tooth.  He's too kind.
  • Sleep-still much better thanks to the borrowed snoozer, but still having at least one night a week where I feel like I haven't slept at all.
  • Symptoms-Nothing new.  Swelling seems to have leveled out--maybe it's because the weather is in the 20's this week and I'm always COLD!!!  Still have the occasional nose bleeds and still can't wear earrings.  Did you know that?  I haven't been able to wear them since the very beginning.   If I had known this was a symptom, I would have known we were pregnant at 3 weeks (and you're not even technically pregnant for the first two!)
  • Movement-Little Hoot is getting more and more active and I'm loving every moment of it!  He/she especially loves the quiet moments in the morning while we hang out with Jesus together.  I'm praying that this carries on once Little Hoot is here!
  • Other 25 week highlights:  
    • Had our monthly appointment and got to hear Little Hoot's heartbeat.  Staying strong at 150.
    • McMom (aka GranNan) was able to come up for the appointment.  We loved spending quality time with her.
  • Best moment of the week:  Almost every night this week right before I fall asleep, it's as if Little Hoot wants to say good night and remind us he/she is in there.  So each night we fall asleep with my hand and Robert's hand saying good night to our little one.  I love these moments and want to cherish each one of them.
