Silly Socks!

Today was "silly sock day" at school for Kinley! She loves days like this~she looks forward to waking up in the mornings to do it! I took 3-4 pictures this morning & brought the camera with me to work to load them and when I looked at them on the computer..this is the only one that turned out :( She still looks goofy in it but I love it! You can tell she just woke up lol!

And..her shoes are too big LOL! She outgrew her other twinkle toe shoes & since it's summer we just never bought her any new tennis shoes. Emily gave her these brand new ones bc they were the wrong size (10's). But with thick socks they were a better fit! I just hope she didn't trip all over herself at school today!!

11 weeks

I am 11 weeks today! I can't wait for my appointment next week!
Here's the stats for baby this week:

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

10 weeks

I hit the 10 week mark on Monday (yea I'm behind on blogging)! I'm officially in the double digits!
Still feeling yucky & tired & to be honest I can't wait for that 2nd trimester! Everything is good tho with the baby :) My belly is actually starting to get hard on the top already! Yikes!

I go back to the doctor on August 2nd at 11am. I think we will bring Kinley to that one so that we can all hear the heartbeat together! And then I SHOULD be able to find out the sex at the following appointment :) I was 17 weeks with Kinley & if I can get the next appt the week of Sept 5th then I will be 17 weeks then. We shall see!

Here are the stats for baby this week:

Your baby is now almost 2 inches tall and weighs 5 grams. It's not much, but he/she is complete! In your belly sits a miniature person who in no way resembles the tadpole of a few weeks ago. You can recognize the little face and the eyelids are clearly visible. The vocal cords are forming and the inner ear and auricle have been formed, too. The first downy hairs are becoming visible. The process of ossification is in full progress; the fingertips are hardening and soon they will get minuscule nails. A bit later the toes will follow, because the development of an embryo (and of a baby as well) takes place from top to bottom.

Although the gender already has been determined, you can't see whether it will be a boy or girl yet. At this stage, the umbilical cord between the embryo and the wall of the uterus starts to function and a lot of work is done on creating the placenta. That's because from now on your baby-to-be will grow rapidly and that's only possible when he's provided with a sufficient amount of nutrients via the placenta and the umbilical cord.

The Greatest Show On Earth

We got some free tickets to the circus from my friend Kate & it couldn't have been in town at a better time. Connor & Camryn are with my parents while Jamie & Jeremy are in Vegas-so we all went to the circus! Kinley & Camryn loved it.. Connor was pretty scared, mainly of the loud music & stuff. After intermission & some cotton candy he perked right up though & had a good time. Kinley's favorite part was the acrobatics!

I think this is my favorite picture of Kinley! I will have to frame this one.
This was Connor the first hour 1/2! Poor thing.
This family cracked me up.. they all wore clown suits. I'm not sure if they thought everyone would be dressed up the same?
Mom & Kinley
Connor after cotton candy!
Both of their eyes were closed but it is still a cute one ;)
Kinley took this picture of me.. she did pretty good!
She got the cutest lil horsey to take home- she loves it!

Little Butter Bean

We had our very first baby appointment yesterday afternoon! I was starting to feel nervous about the whole pregnancy because with Kinley.. I went to the doctor for something unrelated & they told me there that I was pregnant! So I already had the docs confirmation that I was. This time I had to wait a month before I heard from the doctors mouth! But we did the ultrasound & little butter bean's heart was beating just fine & growing just fine! I am 8 weeks & 3 days which puts me at a February 17, 2012 due date! We are so excited!! Kinley was disappointed that it wasn't twins like she had hoped.. but she is getting over it! If it's not a girl.. then I don't know what we are going to do with her! I can see a big meltdown in the future!

I had a few concerns about delivery since it went so horribly with Kinley. So doc agreed to induce me a week early if I haven't already started labor on my own. I'm praying this time goes 100% smoother!!
