Emma & her cousin Madison before they went into the hot tub.
Do they look excited or what?
(And yes, Emma has a temp. tattoo on her arm.)

Protective gear

So David went on a bicycle ride today in this beautiful weather.  When he got home, he put his helmet on the table.  Well, of course, the little 2 year old hands find it and want to wear it.  David puts it on her head, and she runs around the house like crazy.  She slows down for a second to sit at the table and eat an apple.  Then....

she slips off the chair.

Did she get hurt?

No.  She was wearing a helmet.

I'll just be a sec...

but, not really.

I thought I'd sit down and update the ol' blog-a-roo with a little story.  Then I thought, well maybe I'll just change my font to something cool.  Then I thought, "Yeh, I can do this."  Then, I realized I have been sitting at the computer for about an hour getting this font in my template, editing my HTML, and finally looking at my page with a pretty sweet font.  But really?  An hour?  It's a good thing I like it, because there's no way I'm changing it now.

What week am I?

Due Date:  I guess July 17th.  Although my money is on June.
How far along:  22 weeks today by original due date.  23 weeks, 4 days by last u/s
Weight Gain:  Well, 20 pounds total.  Which means, I'm back on track.  At least he didn't say, "Little bit of weight gain here.  The more you gain, the harder it is to lose later."
Maternity Clothes:  Dear Bella Band, I love you.  Thank you for supporting my growing baby belly in ways I only hoped you could.
Stretch Marks:  I don't want to talk about it.
Feeling Baby:  Most definitely.  I would say strong kicks every 3 hours at least.  David, Steph (sil), and my boss have also felt kicks.  :)  Needless to say, I don't mind hands on my belly.....if I know you.
Food Cravings:  Nothing that I had to leave the house for.  I've been enjoying Skittles again.  Damn Skittles.  Strawberry-Orange Gatorade is a crowd-pleaser. 
Gender:  Still a boy!
Baby's Heartrate:  140's  :)
What I miss:  Skinny jeans and heels.
What I love:  Not having to suck in after a big meal.
Looking forward to:  Long summer dresses when the weather heats up.  Enjoying my last "me and Emma" days playing and tanning at the pool.
Milestone:  Past the halfway mark.  Not gaining 2 pounds a week.

Alright, alright....

I lied.

It's chips & queso.

That's what I'm craving.  When I said I wasn't craving anything, apparently I mispoke.

I wasn't aware that my body would soon want salty tortilla chips && nacho cheese queso at 11:00 am in the morning.  I like to think of it as a after-breakfast snack.  You know, good for you - get you going for the day.

Yep.  Call it brunch, I don't care.  It's good.
