25 Weeks...15ish To Go :)

Let me just start by saying I love numbers that can be easily divided, so this week makes me happy :)  I'm also feeling pretty good this week!  Johnny went on a men's retreat with our church this past weekend, so I got to spend some good old mommy daughter time with Joey!  It's getting more and more challenging to pick Joey up, give Joey a bath, play with Joey on the floor, and basically do anything because this belly is OUT OF CONTROL!!!!  That being said, when Johnny was gone, Joey was great!  She was willing to go up and down the stairs on her own {usually she wants mommy or daddy to carry her}, she was good for the bath {recently she hasn't wanted to take baths}, she ate well {we have been getting to fight with an almost 2 year old at every meal}, and well you get the point, she was great!!!  I'll explain more of the "how am I feeling" questions during the belly pic section...let's get to it!!

Here I am with Joey in my belly!  The caption on this picture said 104.4 lbs!  It also said my doc wanted me to gain 10 to 15 more lbs!  I remember thinking...are you crazy??  Where is all that weight going to go??  I can't possibly get any bigger!  Now onto the pic for baby Sam....

This pic is with baby Sam in my belly and answers the question from above!  This is where all that weight can go!  In this pic I weigh 110 lbs...Yikes!  I was wondering why my docs aren't concerned with my weight this time around, and I guess it's because I'm not having any trouble putting any weight on :(  That's why I have a frustrated look on my face!  I don't even think I could wear the shirt I'm wearing in the pic above without offending someone because the bottom of my belly would stick out!...oh well, pregnancy is beautiful...blah, blah, blah!

On with the Baby Center news :)

How your baby's growing (25 Weeks):

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

And for those that want the inside scoop, here's the view!

Look at the drawing's belly, so cute and little {sigh}!  One day I too will have a small belly again :)

HAHA! Your current weight is 10 lbs BELOW the weight I am trying to get back to after Lizzie :) And yes, I realize the fact that I am 7 inches taller than you probably factors heavily into that ;-)

Awww. Your belly is cute, cute, cute, and I rather suspect its occupant is, too!
