The Kids and I

Since I'm officially 18 weeks pregnant today, I decided it was high time to start official pictures of the growing belly. I didn't do so well the first time around and I didn't want to start it too early with all my recent complications. However, I'm pretty sure now is as good a time as any! While Jonathan was posing me outside yesterday afternoon, I couldn't help but get both my kids in the shot with me. Aren't we precious?? However, here is the official First Belly Shot of Pregnancy 2010:

What do you think? Pretty impressive size for 18 weeks, I'd say. :) Granted, I have only gained a few pounds so far - woohoo! That bump is just my guts rearranging and pushing up to make room for baby. Cute, right? Anyway, I know I can't end this post without comparing my sweet baby to a fruit or a vegetable. So, without further ado, as of today, my precious baby is approximately 5.5 inches from rump to head, weighs 7 ounces, and is the size of a bell pepper!

Can you believe there are only three more fruits and/or veggies to go through before we can change Baby Bauer's name to something much more substantial? I can't wait to know who is growing in there. And starting to softly kick me. :) I love feeling my baby's movement and although it's few and far between now, I know in the coming weeks I won't be mistaking indigestion for baby. Hope you are all still watching cartoons in your PJs. Happy Saturday morning!
