Happy Easter and 19 weeks!

this week was a good week! Of course I had those doctors appointments but, we just had a fun weekend. Julietta and I went to the park friday afternoon. Since we've moved here she has become a little timid. She doesn't like to walk on the playground because it has small holes in it. Well friday, she took off! She was running and having a ball. Saturday we just hung around the house in the morning and then Saturday afternoon after nap we went out to the mall and then to the beach. Julietta went to the book store with Randy while I went to target to get easter basket stuff and she loved going someplace with just daddy! Sunday we got up and went to church and Julietta had a great time playing with the kids. Then we came home and she ate the candy that they gave her at church, and took a nap. Then we had our easter egg hunt and she ate candy for awhile! Needless to say last night she was HYPER! We couldn't get her to stop! She was really hilarious :) Randy is doing great in the art compitition he's gotten several awesome feedback so we're excited to see where he'll place. They are doing their last little bit of work stuff and then they have a week in the field before graduation. I was able to schedule my next appointment for May 8th and Rands will not be in work so he will finally be able to go and see an ultrasound of this one. We still have no names! However the little boy is a moving machine. He kicks my bladder a lot! Around 5:30 he starts to get REALLY active. Randy was actually able to feel him kick the other night. A lot earlier than with Julietta, and he seems a lot more active! Great! hehe.

Your baby's sensory development is exploding! Her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom. His arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body now. His kidneys continue to make urine and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. A waxy protective coating called the vernix caseosa is forming on his skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid.
