Happy hump day!

I resisted the temptation to name this post "Hump Week."  I can see the raised eyebrows now.

I am 21 weeks, officially "over the hump!"  We are both doing great - mom is feeling not too shabby and little miss is practicing for the US Olympic gymnastics team on a daily basis.  Still amazed at how quickly the pregnancy is zipping along.  Baby Bean will be here before we know it.  And from the feel of things, she will be able to do a perfect ariel at birth.

Here's a BabyCenter drawing of a 21-week bambino:

 And here's a snapshot of the real thing:

More belly pics as the oven continues to expand, I promise.  Up until now there hasn't been much to see.

If only that trend were destined to continue...sigh.  Had an OB check today and evidently no one ever told the scale there "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."

But it goes with the territory.  :)  I'm grateful for the blessing of another pregnancy and especially, the blessing of another daughter.  We can't wait to meet her.

Hope your Hump Day's HAPPY!

 Jesse treed a Baby Bug!!
Apparently these creatures like to climb trees when encouraged by their Daddies.
They are a little brazen and fearless as well.

And once they are in the tree, they tend not to want to come down.

Hooray!  We get to keep the designation "the girlies" when referring to our little ones.  We will be welcoming another daughter at the end of May. Jesse is seriously outnumbered at this point.  :)

I cannot BELIEVE how fast this pregnancy is FLYING by.  Another week and I will be at the HALFWAY point!!  We need to get on the nursery and start thinking about names while I am in my second trimester and feeling relatively good.  I am thinking a whole lot about getting back in some yoga classes 3 times a week too, but we will see if I can pull it off time wise.  It made a world of difference in eliminating pregnancy aches and pains with Madeline.  (Plus I just miss the gym, and Dr. said forget about doing anything but yoga or walking until after the baby is born, so yoga it is.)

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy new year!!  Here are some of the girlies' Christmas pictures that didn't make it into the Christmas cards.  I had a very hard time narrowing it down to 3.  Enjoy, and New Years' Blessings!!!!!!!!!!!!
