All about Baby

This is day number 195 and you're 27 weeks pregnant!
You have 85 days or 12 weeks left, and are 69.6% of the way there.
Baby's age since conception is 181 days or 25 weeks.

Well that puts it all into perspective. This means, hurry up Angela and Jason, I'm a coming! The above pictures are so fun! That's Jason working on Lylas room and me doing my favorite thing, baking and bellies! Yum-O!

It's strange to see my stomach wave. What I mean by this is that I can actually see it popping, moving, conforming, changing and kicking. Lyla kicks and moves so drastically that my stomach is visibly moving through my clothing. It goes in waves and little parts poke out each time. It's so neat! I love setting my hand on there when she's dancing around. I can only envision her little cute body pushing on me.

We took our first pre-natal class yesterday. It was "ALL ABOUT BABY". Wow, lots of preggo mamas there! Jason and I learned to swaddle, bathe, soothe, comfort, and diaper change our baby. This may seem like nothing to some of you, but we really know nothing about babies or how to care for them. This was a highly educational class at Evergreen Hospital and we left knowing so much more than when we walked in those doors. I think Jason and I can now swaddle with the best of them! Jason asked some pretty good questions in class "How long will we be in the hospital?" (he then whispered to me, so you can pack enough clothes, you know?) "What should the water temperature be for the bath" (I whispered.... I registered for that ridiculous little duck that tells you if the water is too hot or not). It was so much fun and really a bonding time for Jason and I. After six hours of learning all about baby we went home as soon to be partially educated freaked out parents. Our Labor and delivery class starts on April 9th and that is a five week series, can't wait to hear all about the pain I will shortly be experiencing.

I'd like to end this blog just by saying that I have the best husband in the world. He pampers me, and lets me do whatever I want. It's the small things that count and I just want to say that since I've been pregnant he's done multiple little things for me that mean the world. In turn I bought him his renewal subscription to X-Box Live.... so that means I'm a good wifey too!

Just some of the things:
Asking me what I'm craving each and every day and giving into my cravings.

Going to Red Apple with me on a Friday night for mint ice cream and a cadburry egg.

Pulling me and my belly into our highly propped bed each night.

Opening my door.

Carrying my purse wherever we go because he is worried about my shoulder (even though I insist on carrying it).

Telling me I look beautiful.

Going to each and every appointment.

Being a proud and excited husband.

Laughing with me and at me.

Making funny faces with me.

Sitting at home with me.

Taking care of me.

Buying me Gerber daises.

Loving me and Lyla.

Man..... I'm one lucky girl!

There is no question that Jason is a doting husband and going to be a great father. We're excited for you both!
