I get these e-mail's weekly to update me on the progress of my pregnancy. I love to read these and see what's going on inside my body. I thought I would share this with you! Enjoy!

Your baby is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango). He may be able to feel your movements now, so put on some tunes and dance around the house. No matter what race your baby is, he looks red now due to blood vessels showing through his transparent skin. His true skin tone will develop over the course of his first year. Blood vessels in your baby's lungs are developing to prepare him for breathing, but complete lung development will take many more months. The lungs are the last organ to fully develop.

I know I already posted today, but I am killing time at work. I am hoping someone has the second book in the Twilight series they will let me borrow? I have seriously gone to the library like 4 times and of course they are all checked out. I know I can be put on a list ot have it held for me, but I don't have the patience for that. I am also too cheap to go out and buy books. I know I will only read them once, so why buy them? Anyway, if anyone wants to be so generous as to let me borrow the book (seriously I will only have it for like 4 days!) I would appreciate it! If not, I will continue to wait not so patiently...

Gotta get something off my chest

This is something that has been bothering me lately. It is going to sound silly and trivial to most people, but there will be some who see my point.
The last couple weeks they have been doing some type of construction on Dixie Drive, the main road that runs by our subdivision. This in itself does not bother me, but some of the workers do. (Disclaimer: I am not a construction worker. I do not know all the the ins and outs of construction jobs, and have no clue all that is involved in this gentleman's job. I hope I don't offend anyone...:) ) You know the guy who holds the sign that says "slow", and on the opposite side its a "stop" sign? Well, his job seems pretty simple right? Hold the sign so the drivers are aware they are in a construction zone and the keep their speed down. Occasionally if he gets the signal to stop traffic he has to turn the sign around to the other side to ask people to stop..... not rocket science right? Well, I have heard they get paid a fairly decent amount of money to do this since its considered "hazardous" or something. Well, there the guy who is supposed to be holding the sign in my neighborhood doesn't even bother to hold it. He leans the dang thing up against a traffic cone. He stands fairly close, but honestly, if all you have to do is hold a sign and you get paid a nice chunk of cash to do it, can't you make sure you actually do it? Sheesh...
Oh well, I feel better now....

Oh Chloe....

what to say about this girl? She is adventurous, fearless, and determined. The following picture was taken yesterday morning. After her morning bath. Bentley woke up and asked for yogurt for breakfast. I knew it would make a mess but since they needed baths anyway, I wasn't too worried about it. I set them up at the table and let them eat. Of course, Chloe was covered from head to toe. After they were done I put them in the bath and got them cleaned up. Shortly after I hear chairs moving in the kitchen but didn't think much of it because Chloe likes to push things around. A little bit later I decided to check on her and this is what I found.....

I was thrilled. (sense the sarcasm?) She had managed to push her chair up the table, climb up (we have a bar height table!) and find the left overs of her yogurt. I stuck her in the kitchen sink and she got another quickie bath.

I can't wait for the "terrible two's" with this one!

Belly Pic Time!

I failed to mention this last week, but we had a semi-lengthy discussion with our Doctor about my due date. As I mentioned before, the ultrasound shows me not being as far along as we had originally thought. While I do believe I will go sooner than my new due date, I have opted to change my due date to September 16th. (ps, thats the day after my birthday :)) I decided I would rather move my due date back and be surprised when I go early, than to plan on sooner and be depressed if I go overdue. So, I am now 20 weeks along... again...

On a happier note I am starting to notice lots of fetal movement. When I get in bed for the night I can feel the baby roll around like he is trying to get into a comfortable position. I love this point in my pregnancy. I have more energy, I am not as sick as before, and lots of exciting things with the baby. We have picked a few names, but I think the one at the top (for today haha) is Brody. Opinions......? To end this baby filled post - a pic, of my ever expanding belly!
