12 Weeks!

We’re moving along quite nicely. Last week was lovely- I had the whole week off for Thanksgiving, and Frank and Sandy were able to fly out for a visit. And there was food. Lots and lots of food. It was fantastic! Here are a few pics from the visit:

I picked F&S up from the airport on Tuesday night- it was clear and dry outside. This is what we woke up to on Wed morning. MAGIC!!!!


Getting ready for Thanksgiving

Luke's Baby. Frank took it for a spin~ what is it about tractors that turn grown men into 4 year olds??

I also whipped out the doppler and gave a listen to my Granny and Boompa in Phx. Then of course I helped Frank and Sandy hear their grandchild for the first time as well. That’s such a special thing to me. I have to say how glad I am that technology is what it is. I don’t listen often, but I still can’t wipe the stupid grin off my face each time!

So. On to the 12 week photo:

BUMP! Okay, more like... bump! It's not ready for uppercase yet. =)

Baby is the size of a plum (that’s over two inches, people!) and is developing reflexes. Now, when the Apple Smuggler trods on my poor belly, the baby is saying, “What the He%$?!? ” (Let’s be real- it’s my kid. She knows those words.) =-/

She will now turn away and squirm during belly poke-age, and is making sucking motions with her mouth. Her itty bitty fists are clenching and unclenching, and her face is definitely human. So cool!

So, yeah. Busy week for baby and mama. I think I’m gonna go eat some more turkey… lean protein, right?


ps: Yes, I switched from “He” to “She”- I don’t know anything more, and I still kind of feel boy-ish, but if I have a little hardcore ninja tomboy girl in there, she should know when she reads this in a few decades that I will be just as happy with little Grizelda instead of Chuck.

    Plum jelly is yummy……..Sara did you cut your hair? and when?

    • No haircut here. I did manage to get a really terrible… ahem…perm. I hate to even say it out loud. 😛 So if the hair’s not up, it’s straightened until I can whack it all off again. Good thing I love short hair! 😀

  3. Soooooo exciting! Yay! You look fantastic and so happy. Are you going to find out the sex when you can?

    • Thanks, Nikki! And yes, bebe’s sex will not be a secret… Too many people excited to start shopping and sewing and knitting and building. Lucky kid! 😀
