21 Weeks!

Today I am 21 weeks and feeling great!  Not much has changed since last week, no ultrasound or huge milestone to report on but I swear I’m getting bigger by the day.  Here are my latest pictures!  Special Thanks to my good friend Susan who is 3 weeks ahead of me and my inspiration for the self-portraits in the mirror idea : ) and my Mother-in-law for my tripod, that allows me to take pictures of myself when Dan is not home : )

I guess a pretty big thing is that the baby’s movements are becoming more distinct!  It used to be pretty sporadic and really only felt like tickles or flutters, but lately I’ve been feeling him more consistently, and although I still feel the flutters I have been feeling what I can only describe more as a “thump” from the inside : )  I think I’m starting to notice a pattern too.  I always feel him in the morning when I first wake up (that’s when I feel the thumps, I think it’s his way of saying “feed me Momma”) and I usually feel him after I eat, when I lay down to go to sleep at night and sometimes when I’m driving in my car.

Speaking of cars…we got a new one over the weekend!!!!  Dan and I knew that my little Jetta wasn’t going to cut it once our little guy came and that his truck; as nice and convenient as it has been for us and all of our friends : ) just wasn’t practical. Dan has a company car which he drives all the time, and I have little “Jackie”, who’s been fantastic, but just too small, so we did some research and test drove some SUV’s and we decided that a Toyota Sequoia was a great fit for us!  We wanted something bigger, that could carry us, the baby, and the dogs comfortably, and also needed something that would be able to tow the boat, and the Sequoia was esentially a perfect fit!  I put my car up for sale 2 weekends ago and by Friday I had “sold” it to a co-worker of mine!  So we traded in Dan’s truck and we now have our pretty and sweet new ride!! 

The New Car!


It’s much bigger than my Jetta, but it is awesome and I LOVE it!!!!  I think it will be a great “family” vehicle : )
