This week our sweet baby girl...

This week our sweet baby girl has bulked up like the average cantaloupe -- to about 4 3/4 pounds. (Length: almost 18 inches, head to heel.)


And man is she moving! This week we were able to SEE her move, not just feel it. It looks so weird when my belly "jumps" and "waves" with the baby's movements. She is still diagonal, head up and feet down. We can't see her feet moving, just her head and arms. The doctor says that she still has plenty of time to flip, but we're getting close. Just 6 more weeks!

I LOVED when my babies moved when I was pregnant! Even though I could physically hold them after they were born I actually missed that cool feeling. One night after work when I was pregnant with Claire that she was way active I filmed my belly moving. I wanted to remember what it looked like! I'm a dork...

I cannot wait! 6 weeks and counting... hope she can hold out for her due date so Charlie and I will be able to be there!

It is fun watching the belly move. I miss that. How exciting! Don't fret. Rose flipped at almost 37 weeks. I was getting a little nervous, and threatened to give her a spanking if she made mommy have a c-section. (totally kidding...sort of;))
