16 Weeks

These weeks are just flying by.  Friday we started out with my cousins sons birthday party.  Then on Friday night we met some friends and walked to the park and got ice cream. It was a great night hanging out with great people and their sweet little boy.  Saturday Travis had an away baseball game, so the girls and I hung out at home, went to a couple garage sales, and got lunch with my sister before heading to the baseball game. It was a great game and the boys played really well. I love watching Travis coach.  The girls love to be outside and Kenna loves the baseball boys and all of the parks we find at the baseball games, so we try to make it to as many games as we can:).  Sunday was Mother’s day and it was filled with breakfast from Trav, homemade presents from the girls, church, picnic, grill out, and planting the garden. It was a pretty successful day.  Trav helped the girls make the sweetest card and crafts for me. Kenna was so excited to give me her present and explain in detail how she made it.

Pregnancy side of things: I keep just rolling along, this pregnancy is flying by. I have been super tired still and waiting to get some energy back.  It helps when the sun is out, perks me up a little bit.  My 16 week doctors appointment went great and they found the baby’s heart rate right away. It is always a relief when you hear that little beating heart.  The girls came with me to my appointment this time. They were great helpers and ate lots of gold fish.  Emmy even sat still on my lap while they drew blood, thank the lord.  I am also happy  I have had no itchy palms like last time!  I also scheduled my ultrasound:) I can’t believe in four weeks I will be have way done.  This little baby will be here before we know it.
