Week 25

June 4th, 2008

Today is June 5, and we are at the 25 Week mark.  The baby is doing well and growing fast.  He’s kicking up a storm and we can feel him easily on the outside of the belly.  We are into the nursery decoration now.  We have our furniture and the crib should be showing up today.   But we still have to pick out the colors and get the room painted.  Everything is moving pretty quick now!  Here’s a picture of Cris’ belly.

We hope you are all well.  – Travis and Cris

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!
