The baby is kicking!!!! PLUS pictures from Makaela’s 30th Birthday!

May 27th, 2008

We’ve hit a new landmark with the jellybean – he’s kicking away at mommy now. It took a while for me to feel him because of the position of my placenta, but he’s making up for lost time now. Travis even felt him Saturday morning. It was a little disarming…I was just laying down and started feeling these little spasms every once in a while. It took me a little while to finally put together what I was feeling. ( I even had to call my mom for confirmation.) And, of course, my belly is growing everyday. It seems that I’m hungry all the time, and while sometimes I just need a snack, sometimes I eat more food in one sitting than I ever thought possible! The Florida heat is starting to get to me a little bit when I’m out and about, but so far I’m handling it ok. So far, the whole pregnancy has been going great!

Over Memorial Day weekend, we celebrated Trav’s sister Makaela’s 30th birthday. We headed over to Trav’s Mom’s house on Sunday for dinner, presents and cake. Makaela is also preggers (about 30 weeks) and we got some great pictures of all of us, including her adorable 3 year old, Lucas. We hope you’re all doing great and we’d love to hear from you. Take care!

Week 21 Starts Today

May 8th, 2008

Hi family and friends!

Today is May 8, 2008 and starts week 21 for Jellybean. Mom and baby are doing well. Crisi seems to be getting into the “Super Mom” phase of the pregnancy. She has tons of energy, lots of projects, and it’s go go go! That’s a welcome change from the sick-all-day first trimester.

Here are a couple of pictures from the week 18 ultrasound. In the first two, Jellybean was facing the camera and was opening and closing his mouth. As soon as I pare down the video to just the fun stuff, I’ll get it posted. (Unfortunately, I’ve been working out of town quite a bit and haven’t had much free time lately.)

We are doing well and hope you are too! – Trav & Cris
