the proof is in the belly....





Here is the belly at 17 weeks & 5 days....not that I'm counting or anything. And here's a little update on what's been going on the past few weeks:



*I'm losing my mind. They say you lose brain cells when you're pregnant. Well, I'm definetly losing them, and afraid of not getting them back! I have had some really 'blonde' moments lately. For example, our neighborhood has those annoying traffic circles in it. I can't tell you how many times I've made the circle and just kept on driving without turning down our street! I get all the way to the highway before I realize I'm going the wrong way. I also tried really hard to get a drink from a vending machine with my credit card....a vending machine that takes cash/coins only.



*I love being able to feel the baby move! It makes me smile every time. I'm sure at some point these little movements will turn into big kicks that will keep me awake at night, but for now, I welcome every little movement. I'm pretty sure the kid loves food as much as I do. As soon as I finish a meal, it feels like the baby is jumping for joy! I'm pretty sure I heard it say, "Mmm...Thanks, Mom."



*A few weeks ago Matt's dad did an ultrasound for us. It was so much fun to just take our time and watch the baby move....and move.....and move! It was the wiggliest little worm! The kid looks like it has had some Tae Bo training the way it was punching and kicking--not to mention the somersaults...what a show-off. We weren't able to tell if it was made of sugar & spice or snakes & snails just yet (though we do have our suspicions), but we have our big ultrasound on Aug 15th and should then know for sure! I can't wait for that update!

Hey Sarah, It's Brooke Francis Cowart. I see your brother all the time and always tell him to tell you that I said hi. But, I know how men are so you may have never gotten my hellos. I am so excited for you & Matt. I will be praying for the three of you. Your belly is just too cute, I can't wait to watch it grow. Best wishes!

Yay! I am so happy for you! I bet Lee is THRILLED, yes THRILLED, to be an uncle! I know how much he loves you, so I can imagine he and the baby will have the same special connection! By the way, if you don't remember me, Laken Hathcock is my maiden name! Check out my blog too!!!
