Since Elijah was born on Mother’s Day it usually takes a back seat to birthday party plans. This year my mom, Janet and Aaron’s grandma Carol were in town so we had a fun Mother’s Day lunch out at the White Chocolate Grill in Naperville.
We had our 20 week ultrasound this past weekend for Zimmerbaby #2. Technically I was 22 weeks. Aaron and his mom Janet came along. While waiting in the waiting room we considered a last minute change of mind on finding out the sex, but decided to keep it a surprise in the end. There are 10 fingers and 10 toes, so we are thrilled! Below is a profile pic showing the lips and nose very clearly. The little bubble below the chin is an arm/hand.
Another profile shot, again the bubble is a hand/arm. The baby kept the hands and legs up by the head the whole time.
I loved this one. It’s hard to see but at the bottom of the black space you can see baby looking straight at you. There’s a nose and lips.
Arm and fingers. So cute!
I just loved seeing the baby this way. He/she moved around so much! If you’re curious what Elijah’s ultrasound pics looked like at 20 weeks click here.
I’m actually 13 weeks now but this photo was taken at 11 weeks. I’m a bit behind in my posting. There will be no bare belly shots this time around. I have no idea what I was thinking last time. Even I don’t want to see that.
For comparison’s sake, here is my 12 week belly shot when I was pregnant with Elijah. Significantly smaller.
Hello It’s Zimmerbaby. I decided to open my eyes this week. So far I felt more comfortable keeping them shut. But I thought it might be fun to see what things look like in my cave. For the most part it is dark. But I can definitely see some light shining in from time to time. I wonder where it comes from? Perhaps the walls just glow.
We put our dresser together this weekend. I actually helped with this one. It took about 2 hours. Plato helped too! He chewed on the dowel rods, walked all over the directions and fell asleep on the screws. We’re pretty happy with the way it turned out. The room is really coming together. We just need a chair and some decorations.
Hi Everyone! It’s your favorite Zimmerbaby! The strangest thing started happening this week. So I’ll be sleeping or just hanging out when all of the sudden my whole body jumps. It seems to be coming from my chest. And then, a few seconds later, it will jump again. It will happen over and over again every couple of seconds. Eventually, the jumping just stops and goes away. But then when I least expect it, the process starts all over again. The jumping doesn’t hurt but it is quite startling. It kind of sounds like a “Hic, Hic, Hic”. Weird huh?
