As you can see, there has been a lot of growth since my 6 week picture.
15 lbs of growth in fact! Eeeeek!
Yesterday I had my 20 week ultrasound and from what I could tell, everything looks good. Little baby boy was VERY active...in fact, the tech said it took about 15 minutes longer than it usually does, just cause the baby wouldn't stay still long enough for him to get the necessary measurments. Looks like we've got an active one on our hands!
Monday was Audrey's first day of gymnastics. I thought she looked so cute in her leotard that I had to take a picture!
She had a blast in her class! She made several new friends (as I knew she would...this girl is not shy). I can't say she was the most coordinated kid in the class (she's got her mother's skills I guess) but she had fun and thats all that counts.
So of course Wylie wanted me to take a picture of him too. Here he is doing his best to smile with a mouth full of goldfish.

These were taken last week when Michael's parents took Audrey and Wylie to Knott's Berry Farm. This one is my favorite :)
I'm sure most of you already know but we found out we're having another little boy...yeah! We're super excited. I'm 18 weeks now. Almost half way there!

After opening every present, she would run and give hugs to the gift-giver. It was super cute. I didn't even have to ask her to say thank you.

I guess I could have saved money on the pregnancy tests and just waited a few days!
So far I've been feeling really good...very little nausea, not too tired...COMPLETELY different than the other 2 pregnancies (but then again, I'm only 6 weeks...things could change at any moment).
Audrey is SUPER excited. She kisses my belly like 5 times a day. At night, right before going to bed, she kisses my belly and says "goodnight sweet baby, i love you." And she is really good at reminding me to take my prenatal vitamins :)
She's also very excited to share a room with her brother. Papa (my dad) has made bunk beds for them to share...very similar to the picture below, except he made drawers to store underneath the bottom bunk...Have I ever mentioned how awesome it is to have a dad who is an amazing carpenter?!?
I, of course, have been having tons of fun planning their room and picking out all the fabric for their bedding. Since we won't know the sex of the baby for quite a while, their room will keep me busy in the mean time. Here are a few pictures that are serving as a bit of inspiration for their room. We're gonna keep the walls really neutral with a "board and batten" wainscoting treatment on the bottom, and a warm grey paint on top. Both kids will have matching striped comforters (made by me and my mother-in-law...well mostly her, but I'll be there to keep her company :) and then we'll have some fun, bright pillows...kinda like the ones above, but different fabric (obviously the stripes will go on Wy's bed and the floral on Audrey's). My dad made the kids an easel...just like the one above...for Christmas, so that'll be in there. Oh, and we're gonna put rain gutter bookshelves on one of the walls too. Audrey LOVES to read, and Wylie is really starting to enjoy it too, so it'll be nice to have all their books easily accessible.
Wylie, as usual, has just been going with the swing of things. You ask him if he's gonna have a new baby and he gives you the typical "uh-huh."
Oh, speaking of Wylie...we've been taking him to speech therapy for the past 12 weeks or so...and he's starting to make major progress! He's to the point that he'll pretty much repeat any word you ask him to say (depending on his mood), which is a complete 180 from a couple weeks ago. Now I'm not saying that you can always understand the words, but at least he's willing to try. We're very proud of our little man!
Well, thats our update for now...I'll try to post more belly pics from time to time.
