Flashback Friday

This is me at 9 months with Cole. This was taken a week before we had him. My hubby thought this would be funny :)

13 Weeks

Today I am officially 13 weeks prego! I survived the first trimester of being tired, sick, and cranky all the time! I am so excited to have a burst of energy and not have that instant feeling of nausea when I wake up each morning. The next few weeks are going to be so exciting...seeing my baby bump grow, feeling the baby kick for the first time, and most importantly, finding out what my little angel is going to be! As of right now, my ultrasound to determine the gender is scheduled for my birthday week (the week of August 13). My aunt is a RN at the local hospital and she has a friend who is willing to ultrasound us at 16 weeks, which falls mid July. So I have to decide if I want to wait for a cool birthday present or end my weeks of anticipation a little sooner!

Cole is getting more excited each day about the baby. He asks to see "his baby" daily and always gives a little rub and a kiss. Its one of the sweetest moments ever to see him do that. He isn't sure yet if he wants a sister, brother, or a dog! I told him the dog is not an option and he gives us the craziest look as if to say "why?" As each day passes, I do get a little sad because its one day less with my family of 3. I wonder sometimes if its possible to love another little person as much as I love my Cole man, but when I look at my ultrasound pics my heart just melts.

My baby bump has finally popped out! Now, its not big, but I did have to switch over to the ever so comfortable prego pants! I will have to post a pic of my little bump soon. I have to admit I am looking forward to seeing my big baby bump! The name game has begun. We have our girl's name, but not sure on the order. Maybe some of you can offer some advice. Addison Claire is our name. But, we have toyed with the idea of Claire Addison. That way we would have a Cole and Claire and wouldn't break the Cryer grandkid tradition of "C" names...Chloe, Carter, and Cole! What do you guys think? As for a boy...thats gonna be a hard one. The only name we can mutually agree on is Jackson. Maybe since we are certain on a girls name, we will have a girl!
