Ain't That a Kick in the Head!

Chris felt Baby Burns for the first time a few days ago. His head was on my belly, and the baby gave a HUGE kick...the strongest I have felt so far! It was so funny :) Reminds me of one of my favorite Dean Martin songs, Ain't That a Kick in the Head:

My head keeps spinnin',
I go to sleep and keep grinnin'
If this is just the beginnin'
My life is gonna be beautiful.

I've sunshine enough to spread,
It's just like the fella said.
Tell me quick,
ain't that a kick in the head?

Other than that I haven't felt the baby too much. I've been much more active lately though, getting ready for school next week. I'm looking forward to a nice 3 day weekend before we get back into the hustle & bustle of everyday life. I'm afraid that once school starts, time is going to FLY by.

21 weeks!




I really love my belly. I love being pregnant.

Come on people!!

Earlier today I was thinking about how Gwen Stefani has been pregnant for what seems like FOREVER. Lo and behold I find out later that she had her baby today! However, the name is awful, just awful: Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale...why, why, why do celebs do this to their poor children? Kingtson was half-way decent, so I was expecting something much, much better. This is getting old.

Funny, honey

Today I sent Chris a text, "I hope we have a girl so we can sing 'Isn't She Lovely' to her!"

Chris wrote back, "I hope we have a boy so I don't have to hear you sing."

LOL :)

20 week ultrasound

It was so amazing!! Hard to believe that's our baby in there, moving and growing all the time :) Dr K. pointed out all the different parts; head, brain, stomach, heart, spine, arms, hands. I think the coolest part was when the baby had his/her arms up in front of his/her face. Then he/she waved at us!! I got a little teary at that point. I could have laid there all day and watched him/her move their little arms and hands. Ugh, it was adorable! We looked away while the doctor checked out the legs (and what was in between, lol.) I'm so glad we didn't find out, although Chris would have found out if I'd let him :) Here are the pictures we got:

This is a picture of the face, and the baby has his/her hands up


The baby's body, with his/her head turned away (gah!!)



Another body shot:



The pictures are pretty grainy, which makes me want to get the 3d/4d ultrasound even more than I did before! We may do that in October. For now we're so happy that the baby looks great. Dr. K was very happy with everything. Baby Burns is 13 ounces and I've gained about 10 pounds so far, luckily all in the belly :) 

Keep growing Baby Burns! We love you!

Yes!! Finally!

We have movement :) I was laying in bed reading after a nice warm bath. All of a sudden, Baby Burns started to move like crazy! It's the weirdest feeling. Like pokes from the inside. Sometimes ripples. They always catch me off-guard. Even  when I'm waiting for a movement, it happens so fast! I can't wait for our u/s tomorrow.

20 weeks, halfway there!

Wow, I'm halfway done?? Time has really flown. I feel fantastic, this has been an amazing pregnancy so far. Our big u/s is on Monday morning and I cannot wait to see Baby Burns. Hopefully not too much of Baby Burns though ;) I hope he or she is happy & healthy in there. I worry that since this has been such a perfect pregnancy, something is bound to go wrong...I hate that! Just keep us and BB in your prayers!

I felt the baby kick last week! I was in Maine, laying on the back of the boat. It's kind of a hard surface (vinyl cushion) and I was laying on my belly (which wasn't terribly uncomfortable.) All of a sudden I felt a kick! Unmistakable, no doubt about it. I felt it a few times while on vacation and it was so incredible. I am starting to really feel the "flutters" and movements at other times, but the kicks and punches are the best. I'm excited for when I feel those constantly. I love looking at and feeling my belly. It's a true miracle to have another human being grow inside of you. I'm in total awe!

Hopefully I'll have great news to report on Monday, along with some pics of our little one!

Stoked about our Stokke!!

Our stroller finally arrived and I am so in love! I put it together right away and have been strolling around the house ever since. I am going to love taking Baby Burns around town!




I love all the different seating options. 3 facing me and 2 facing out. It will also work will a car seat...I'm very happy!



We celebrated a lot today. Today Dawn & Joe were baptized and then we all had lunch together. Family are starting to arrive for their wedding which is in less that a week!

We also celebrated Scott's 13th birthday. I just can't believe he's a teenager. He's as tall as I am! I remember when he was a baby, I used to LOVE just sitting with him, and rocking him to sleep. I was completely smitten. I can't wait to see how Uncle Scott bonds with Baby Burns! Here we are at dinner:


I'm looking forward to the next 3 weeks. I hope they don't go by too fast.
