12 weeks!

We are nearing the first trimester's end. Saturday marked 12 weeks, and baby is the size of a lime! I am getting more energy back and feeling less sick at night(and less nauseous all day, too.) Certain days I am still exhausted at night, last night for example, and I still needed a mini nap after supper to get by! I'm pretty sure it's from staying up so late this weekend with the girls!

I will upload a picture as soon as I take one for this week. I think I just have pictures from weeks 4 and 7 on the camera so far and I will upload those, too.

Lots to do on the agenda and preggo brain has already set in so I need to write things down to remember them~

I don't know about you mommas of more than one child, but I am already feeling this baby move! It is such a cool feeeling and I can't wait to feel it more. Lindsay and I were talking about this because she just hit 14 weeks this weekend and she's feeling her baby move more often as well!

As we traveled to Colorado this weekend for my girl Jen's baby shower we discussed that I was not updating my blog as religiously as I once had when Reef was changing by the day. Now that he's a big boy, I don't have as much to update, but at the same time, now that I'm ever changing, I am going to try to update about once a week.

We had a blast carpooling up to Colorado. Lindsay was a great chauffeaur as she picked Natalie up first, then drove down to pick me up and finally we headed down I-80 to the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Friday was pretty lazy as we just vegged out and ate pizza at Sean & Jen's house. We got to snuggle with Burly, their awesome Wheaton Terrier.

Saturday brought more laziness in the morning as we got spoiled by Sean making bacon, eggs and toast. We headed to Chick fil a for lunch (yum, yum!) and then off to the baby shower where we stuffed ourselves some more! After the baby shower we were able to hang out with Lindsay's sisters for a couple more hours and then went shopping at Ross. It was another late night of talking and suggesting baby names for Jen's, Lindsay's and my babies!

Sunday was a sad day since we were heading back home. We had some bagels and fruit and then packed up and headed out. We picked up Jen's mom, Lucy, in Aurora, as she needed a ride back to Ogallala because Dennis, Jen's dad, had left the day before. It was another fun trip back, but it is good to be home. I can't wait to hear when Jen has the baby if it's a boy or a girl. She says she's 99.9% positive it's a boy, but I guess we'll find out in the next month!

Overall, it was a great time had by all. Too much junk food, but a good time!
