28 weeks 5 days!

Check out the belly!!!! It is growing! I love it. Of course these were taken yesterday morning after the kiddos opened all their presents. What a wonderful day it was. First thing in the morning Swae was sure to hug and kiss her little sister and tell her "Merry Christmas!" Ugh, my heart melts when she does that.

The belly was a big hit with the family yesterday. Everyone enjoyed touching and rubbing. It is so funny though because Skylar won't kick for them. I don't know what it is...they poke and talk and mess with her and she just is nice and content not moving. As soon as we left and were driving home, she was awake and going crazy! Maybe it is because I don't sit enough or something? I don't know. My mom is definitely getting frustrated.

The doctor appointment on Christmas Eve went excellent. I had the kids with me and of course their eyes got huge while listening to Skylar's heartbeat. It was so strong and so loud...I could listen to it all day every day. I am no longer going every 4 weeks. My next appointment is in 3!!!!! I am just in awe at how quick this is going and getting more and more excited. My mom and dad got Skylar a little present even this year for Christmas (her very first doll, some sockies, and little booties). So freaking cute! My doctor was saying that I am still looking very small yet was amazed when she had me lie down to measure and realized I was measuring perfect for 28 weeks. I must be doing something right! We are now in the stage of doing kick counts!

I am still feeling great and everything seems to be going well. I am loving everything about this pregnancy, feeling my little girl, and soaking it all in because I know it is all going to come to an end soon.

You look so great! I love that even your doctor thought you were measuring small and you proved her wrong. That is awesome!

Ah, kick counts. I hated those. Bay never did as she was supposed to.

Your belly is absolutely adorable - you do look tiny! And are you wearing REGULAR jeans???

I love the name Skylar . . . do your step-children live with you full time? How wonderful that they're so excited and you consider them your own!

In case you can't tell, I'm happy you stopped by my blog because I am really enjoying reading yours!
