16 Weeks and 24 To Go!

So this week I am feeling great :)  I am feeling big, but great :)  On with the pics...

Here I am with JoJo in my belly at 16 weeks...we were in Las Vegas!  Johnny and I had planned one last hoorah before we actually had a physical child.  This was an awesome trip!  We spent a ridiculous amount of time in Vegas, but got to do a lot of things...we went to Blue Man Group and Phantom of the Opera, went shopping, walked and walked and walked, and more!  It was fun to get away, and by the end of our trip we were well rested and ready to get home!!

Here I am with Stout Seed # 2 on Christmas Eve Eve :)  No trips planned this time except those up and down highway 75.  The Christmas festivities start tomorrow, and we will be in the car for a lot of it!  I'm so excited to see what Joey gets for Christmas and how she reacts to all the fun things :)  We have started teaching her about the Christmas story and she can totally say "Jesus"!!  She's stinkin cute :)

Here's the Baby Center news on Seed # 2 :)

How your baby's growing (week 16):

Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.

I hope this finds you all well, and I hope you have the Merriest Christmas ever!!
