23 Weeks

I am officially 23 weeks nows and growing! I really do love being pregnant (except for all the fatigue!) So far my pregnancy is going great. The only minor complication is that I have a low lying placenta. Worst case scenario, I will have to have a c-section, but whatever has to be done to make sure my sweet baby arrives healthy is fine with me. Addison is growing and weighs over 1 pound now. She has the longest legs...definately going to take after her brother! We brought Cole with us for the ultrasound on Wednesday. I thought it would be cool for him to see the baby sister we always talk about. Well, he didn't like it. He thought they were hurting me and it upset him. He told the ultrasound tech numerous times "Take that gel off my mommy's tummy!" At one point he looked at Paul and said "Daddy, I just want a dog!" I guess he thinks if we get a dog it wouldn't hurt mommy! I think its so sweet that he's so protective of me :)

Now, my only disappointment is that her room is not ready. Finding the time to work on her room after a day at work, playtime with Cole, and supper is not easy. We still have plenty of time since she won't be here till December, but there is just something about being able to walk into a nursery that is so soothing. I long to be able to sit in my rocker and just look at her sweet crib...imagining how sweet she will be laying there. I love to go through her closet everyday and look at all the sweet clothes she has and imagine all the cute pictures I am going to take! I am so excited about her changing table...we custom ordered from the local wood place. Once it comes in they will stain it to match her crib.

Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!
