Vegas Baby!!

Kasey, Dani, Sheri, Serenity, & Ryder: Ryder & his cousin Serenity have been missing each other so we planned a rendezvous in Vegas! While this may seem like an odd place to take a 4 and 6 year old... Vegas is almost exactly half way between our Phoenix house and the Nish's Utah house. We found a realatively cheap hotel with plenty of family amenities. While the Orleans was not the most fabulous place I've ever been in Vegas, it worked out just fine for us. We spent 4 days just hanging out and letting the kids get in some quality cousin time.


Cheap breakfast in our hotel room: (Kids actually mixed Lucky Charms and Coco Puffs together.... gross!)

Lots of Pool Time:

Week #17 - Baby BOY #2 Adventure

Bigger belly for sure over last week!

How far along? 17 weeks

Size of baby? A Turnip!, about 5", 5 ounces

Total Weight Gain? According to my last doc appt only 2 lbs... but I think I may be up 4 lbs now according to my home scale. Eek.

Maternity clothes? Yes! I need to buy more pants... I have nothing that fits!

Sleep? I am getting some insomnia now. Also getting a lot of body aches and pains that wake me sometimes. Not fun. I still feel pretty good most mornings. But I'm pretty worn out by the end of the day.

Best moment this week? Getting to see Ryder & Serenity together during our Vegas trip.

Food cravings? None really. Any bread or carb sounds good but no real cravings.

What I miss? Sound sleep.

What I'm looking forward to? The "big" ultrasound at the end of the month.

Milestones: FOR SURE I feel little baby boy bumping around in there a lot now. Pretty cool. Also we "may" have a name. Kasey is set on it and I'm working on falling in love with it too.

What's next?: June 30th - Ultrasound.

Emotions: Cranky. Tired. Getting Excited.

Symptoms: Shortness of breath. Wait. No breath! Yes, its that bad. Low blood sugar issues if I don't eat often and that makes me feel horrible.

From How your baby's growing:
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — his lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and he's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. He can move his joints, and his sweat glands are starting to develop.

(This week's picture took many takes because a little booger kept jumping in the photo. Here is one funny attempt:)
