Lots has been going on with our growing family lately. Lily has strep thoat. She's been pitiful, but now that her medicine has kicked in, she's insane. I swear, she didn't say 30 words all day on Sunday. When I got home yesterday, Josh said she had not stopped talking since 4 p.m. She wasn't quiet until she fell asleep, and even then she woke up asking for a story. I think she's getting better now, though.
Today I went to the doctor. I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant. I'm mostly over the sick part. I can't complain about morning sickness at all. I just has a nausous feeling, but no throwing up. The cloak of exhaustion has lifted as well. I don't just want to go home and get in bed every day now. I would say the main difference now it that I look pregnant. I look much bigger much sooner this time. It's ridiculous, but I am growing another person!
The doctor's appointment was pretty routine. I lost a pound since last visit, making me down 4 pounds since my first visit. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat. Since Lily can't go back to daycare until tomorrow, she got to hear it too. She can't understand why the doctor couldn't tell us if was a boy or a girl. I feel the same way! I was hoping that we could find out the week of Thanksgiving, but he changed my appointments to every 3 weeks for the next couple of times to get us on a different schedule. That means THE ultrasound will be the second week of December. I still say boy. Lily goes back and forth. Really, we don't care either way. If it's a girl, great, we know what to expect and have lots of little girl things. If it's a boy, great, one of each, a new adventure!

There is an ongoing debate in our family as to who (or what) Uncle Sean looks like. Sonny swears he looks like a frog. I say Franklin the Turtle. Here I offer my evidence:
Don't you see it? Plus they both like ice cream.
They are both proud of where they came from. Notice how Sean makes his W with 4 fingers, just like Franklin has.
How can you deny the resemblance? The brown eyes with the far away look; the red bandana, the red hair. Totally alike. Case closed.
