I can't believe I am already half way through week 14, time is going by quickly! Even more amazing is the way our little baby is being knit together more day by day. God's creation blows Matt and I away each week as we read about what is going on in secret inside me. Our baby has fingernails, fingerprints, perfect toes, can stick its tongue out and suck its thumb! Our baby can respond to outside stimulus by kicking back if we poke on my tummy! The coolest thing by far this week is the strange little tickling feeling I have every now and then! I cannot say I have felt any outright kicks, but when I am still after dinner especially or Matt is playing with my tummy I can feel these slight tickling flutters inside my tummy. It is so amazing!
We had a great time visiting with family this past week. It was much needed and we really enjoyed ourselves! We went to the fair and enjoyed the sights and sounds. I made homemade bread with my sisters, and just spent time catching up with everyone. One day we went to one of my favorite area parks. Thanks to my very creative sister she took this picture to document Baby's first park outing and our first family picture! :)
Our next midwife visit is in two weeks, I am very excited. I can't wait to hear our baby's heartbeat again. Also, at this visit we will hopefully be scheduling the appointment for the ultrasound to find out what we are having! We cannot wait! Neither can our families! We are all ready to know whether to be thinking pink or blue and Matt and I are ready to start calling this baby by name!
