Time is just clicking right on by!
We had our big anatomy scan at 19 weeks, and Adeline will have a LITTLE SISTER! She’s been talking about “baby sister” ever since we told her we’re having another baby, and she has been adamant about the baby being a girl from the beginning. She does think “baby sister” is coming soon, but I have no way to explain that we have a few more months before she arrives! Adeline does ask if baby sister can cook with her in her new play kitchen (a birthday gift from the grandparents). I think she might have an idea of what’s coming, but we’ll see once this little one arrives!
We all went to the ultrasound together, and we just had the tech tell us there! A little different than what we did with Adeline’s gender “reveal”. We went out for “brunch” at the Sleepy Bee Cafe, and we got Adeline a berry smoothie so that we had a cute photo to send our friends and family. It was a fun way to celebrate the next little one coming to our family!
I’m pretty excited to have another girl. My sisters and I weren’t very close until later in life (we’re 4 and 8 years apart- WOW!), so I’m hoping that Adeline and her little sis can be good friends in these younger years. We still haven’t really made a list of any names that we like. A few have resurfaced from when we were thinking about girls’ names for Adeline, but we’re still at that place of neither of us loving the name. She’ll have a name someday, right?
Let’s see… how am I feeling? Pretty good! Feeling bigger than I did with Adeline, but again, I think I’m carrying lower (and I feel bigger throughout my butt/hips/thighs). I feel like I look about 3-4 weeks ahead of where I was with Adeline (aka- I feel like I look 24/25 weeks pregnant). I probably shouldn’t compare, but I’ve only done this pregnancy thing twice, so it’s hard not to!
Fun fact: there are 6 other women at church who are expecting babies between November and March, and we are ALL having girls! There’s going to be quite the pick for the few young guys at church Also, my best friend is having a baby, and she’ll find out in just 2 weeks what her little nugget is! So excited to be pregnant at the same time as my BFF! We’re hoping we’ll get to see each other over Christmas, she lives in Texas so we haven’t seen each other since last Christmas!
And, just for fun, a little collage of the last 21 weeks!
