i haven't updated about my pregnancy at all and that makes me sad. \\sorry to leave you hanging about one or two babies. just one.\\ with steele i posted all the time about how i was feeling and growing. this round i am busy every single day and can't seem to find the time to post. steele is so much fun and i need to do a post about how adorable my son is. i'm constantly smiling and hugging him because he is absolutely the sweetest little boy. i was telling brett the reasons why i think i mesh well with steele. i think it's mostly because steele is a mini brett. the biggest resemblance is their mild and even tempered personalities. steele is shy and gets overwhelmed by crowds. he listens well and is disciplined easily. he says please and thank you even at the wrong times. my favorite thing to hear is "thank you mommy" in his sincere innocent voice after i give him anything. he is still so cuddly and loves to sit on my lab and play with my hair. obviously brett doesn't do many of these things but i really think steele is the perfect child for me because he has a lot of brett in him.
now onto the real reason for this post, the baby! i'm 16 weeks 5 days and loving being pregnant once again. this time has been much more difficult because one, i have been much much more sick than with steele. morning or night it doesn't matter but even more so between 5-9pm. thank goodness for zofran because my life would be a wreck without it. i didn't even hesitate to call and get a prescription when i felt the sickness coming on. i loved zofran with my first pregnancy and knew i needed it to survive. secondly, entertaining an almost two year old around all day long really takes it out of you when you are pregnant. i find myself needing to lay down at some point in the day or i will start to get crampy.
as most of you remember from my first pregnancy, i get very large very quickly. although last pregnancy i feel i was growing faster, i have been the same large belly self for about a month. i've had a belly from about 8 weeks on. i'm feeling a growth spurt coming on so i'll try to be better about belly pictures.
\\i am going to have to start making it a point to look somewhat attractive in pictures. every picture i've posted the last two months i just look haggard. and the yellow lighting in a doctor's office (below) is not the most flattering.\\
...............little GIRLie girl!!
steele is going to be the best big brother to his little sister!
