Baby Update

I found this pregnancy update on a blog. I deleted a bunch of questions because they were a wee bit too graphic/personal for the internet.

How far along? almost 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: How dare you ask...
Maternity clothes? Oh yes... and I'm hating everything.....
Sleep: Love some, thanks.
Best moment this week: Colin asking every.ten.minutes if his brother is kicking me.
Movement: Oh, my, yes.
Food cravings: Watermelon and cucumbers.
Gender: A little boy
Belly button in or out? It's a swimming pool if you must know.
What I miss: bending over, fitting through small spaces, not getting food on my shirt when I eat.
What I am looking forward to: A little baby to love and hold, seeing Colin's face when he finally gets to meet his little brother.

And I want to remember this....
So one day when Colin was playing in my parent's basement, he found this realistic baby doll. I guess my dad told him it was his baby brother and together they named him (Michael Michael - can you guess what my dad's name is - and no that's not a typo, it's Michael twice).

We had to bring Michael Michael home with us. I went and got a little newborn outfit out of the bins in the basement. Together, we dressed Michael Michael and he has been a part of our family ever since. No seriously.

Covering MM w/ a blankie before bed, check.
Goodnight kisses, check.
Goodnight hugs, check.
Including him in our stories before bed, check.
Making sure he is in the car with us when we leave the house, check.

My favorite was the day I saw Colin spoon feeding MM. My mom told me Colin has more of a maternal instinct than I do.

He LOVES babies.
