sixteen weeks

how is my little baby already (almost) 16 weeks? and why am i not taking belly pictures? i have a teeny one now! i am happily out of the first trimester. i was unmotivated and going to bed as soon as my little family would allow me. a lot of food aversions and so, so tired.

all i can think about is this will probably be the last time i am 16 weeks pregnant. i am trying to slow time down, enjoy every second that is being offered me. the good and the bad. it still hasn't completely sunk in, maybe when i start showing more? i still don't know who this little person is and how she (or he) will change our family but i welcome this new stage in our life. 

and even though they are thousands of miles away, i am thrilled to be pregnant at the same time as esther and courtney from babyccino! courtney asked me very early on when she saw me talking about decaf coffee and chicken and ginger soup. what a wise mama! we actually have the same due date which is so exciting. lots to look forward to this fall!

  3. I just had a jolt looking at pictures of my little girl from just last summer, so much smaller, so different, already so far away in time, and feeling swept away by the hours of the clock. Treasure every moment!

  4. Take lots of belly pictures. I only took a few and wish I'd taken more now!

  5. I am so, so happy for you. It sounds like you won't regret taking lots and lots of baby bump pictures (and if you're going to be taking them you should probably be sharing them on here :). You are so blessed. I said this on instagram but I'll say it again here, Elodie is going to be the BEST big sister. She is just the cutest. I am so excited for you and your family! CONGRATULATIONS!

  6. The most exciting part is to saw the tiny angel inside for the first time.:) The excitement is endless. Have a healthy pregnancy.

  7. I felt the same with my second pregnancy. I had a very hard time enjoying it because of round the clock nausea the first 4 months and sinusitis for the whole pregnancy. It does become more real and enjoyable when the kicks become stronger, though. I hope you're feeling better and show us your bump! :-)

  8. I can't believe I missed this post when you first published it. I just found it.
    I'm so excited to be pregnant with you too. (And how funny that you and I both have that Homestead print.) xo C
