24 weeks

These weeks seem to fly by now. I can't believe I am over half way there! Nothing really has changed over the last few weeks except I am having braxton hicks and getting bigger. It has been interesting to see the differences with carrying one baby versus two. There hasn't been too many differences except I can't fit into all my maternity clothes yet. Guess my big belly last time was a little too big!

No names have been finalized for this baby girl yet. I have a few I have liked but Clark seems to think they are all silly. 

We were watching a friend's baby here the other day and Brooklyn was so gentle and loving and Beckham would just laugh. I really hope this is a good indication of what is to come!

Mother's Day 2013

I had a wonderful Mother's Day this year. It started out with Clark waking up with the kids and making some delicious German pancakes! YUM! Clark was even able to ride with us to church since there were no early church  meetings!

Each mom was given a pretty rose and we enjoyed listening to the kids sing a Mother's Day song.

Clark let me get a nap in after church before we headed over to his sisters for yummy Hawaiian haystacks.

I  received a pretty hand stamped bracelet I wanted! Over all it was a wonderful day and I feel so blessed to be a mother to Beckham and Brooklyn. They are such a joy and pleasure to be around. They even teach me a few things  :)

I am also grateful for my mother who has always been there for me. She has taught me how to love be kind and patient. She has been a wonderful example to me through my life and she is a great Nana to our kids.

21 weeks

Today was my 20 week appointment with the specialist to check out the baby! I was lucky enough to get someone training a new person so I was able to get a 4D picture!

She is still a GIRL and they said everything looks fine! 10 fingers and 10 toes! 

She looks just like Brooklyn did at this stage. She is going to be such a sweet pretty baby.

I have been feeling fine but sleeping has been a little difficult at night. I get so tired but by the time I get in bed I am awake for what seems like FOREVER. The tummy is getting bigger and my appetite is pretty normal! I wonder if I will gain more weight towards the end. I mean I know I will but I wonder how much and how sudden.

I go back to the specialist in 2 weeks because they couldn't get a great picture of the heart. I can't wait until September! Hopefully we can find a new before then!
