I forgot to blog when we found out if you were a boy or a girl. On April 23rd they confirmed you're a BOY! Your Papa and I decided on Oliver as your first name.
I've been craving watermelon often and Pizza Hut bread sticks. Nothing much else. During my first trimester I was all about the tea and lemonade. This week I've been so hungry all the time.
We've been buying clothes and have a crib for you. Happy I have all the summer yard sales to find all your baby stuff. Baby accessories are expensive! We need to paint your room and set up your nursery but the weekends have been busy outside planting flowers or mowing all the lawn and prairie grass on our land. You're going to sleep in our room anyhow. Right next to Mama in your bassinet.
Your Great Grandpa Joe died May 19th, exactly a year after your Grandma Marilyn passed away. I'm sorry you won't get to meet another family member.
We are still so excited and can't believe you're in me! Olivia (your cousin) always asks if I have a baby in me. She wants to name you all sorts of funny names.
My clothes are getting too tight. I bought bigger clothes a month ago but all summer stuff. Weather has been strange this May. We even had a blizzard on Mother's Day! I need warmer days so I can put my new clothes to use instead of wearing the same few things that still fit.
We have your 20 week scans next week. We're excited to see you again. We use the doppler at home to listen to your heart beat. Lately you just want swim around and kick me when we try to hear you. Ornery like your Mama I suppose. ;-) If I figure out how to upload sound files I will put up the recording we have of your heart. ♥♥♥
Love, Mama and Papa
