Mr. E is turning 2 years old!!!
We went on a family mini-vacation to a neighboring town and visited the local science center. What a blast! Before we had taken our coats off, E was staring at everything there and telling me "Play, play!".
From petting snakes and watching tropical fish to blowing massive bubbles and flying an indoor hot-air balloon, there was so much exploring for us to do...
Baby #2: 26 Weeks
Baby's Size: A head of lettuce, average fetus size: 13.6 to 14.8 in, 1.5 to 2.5 lbs.
Cravings: The usual. Plus, steamed broccoli (with ranch, of course)?!
Aversions: Lately, going out to eat. Unless it's Erbert's and Gerbert's sub shop!
I'm Feeling: Baby is very active these days! Poor E has been fighting a cold all week and, while we were cuddling, Baby was actually "kicking" E. The sibling fights start early I guess! Had a great appointment with our midwife last week. Baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead but all is well. No UTI, no dehydration, looking good!
Sleep: I struggle with sleeping past 6:30 am, which is fine, but the problem is I'm ready to pass out for the night at like 8 pm. When I'm out, I sleep like a rock!
Weight: +17 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight.
My Prayer for Baby: "Lord, as we are nearing the third trimester I give all of my worries and concerns to You. I feel tempted to worry about carrying our baby full-term, how the delivery will go and how we will adapt to having a new baby in the family. I know that You care about every aspect of our lives and that You will take care of our family in every way!
Prepare Leo, E and I to welcome this little one into our family. Continue to guide Baby's development and prepare us for a healthy delivery in a few months! Thank you, God, for the blessing of this pregnancy and for my supportive family. Thank You for knowing what we need even more than we know ourselves! Amen. "
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?Last Week's Workouts:
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? MATTHEW 6:25-27
