Julietta's words

Funny quotes from Julietta in the past couple weeks.

"Pooping makes me hungry!"
"Daddy your so weird!" (after watching Lion King)
"It smells INTERESTING!"

Those are just some random ones. She's been so funny though that I didn't want to forget her little sayings. I'll add some more as I think of them :)

Week 23 kinda







Well, we did not take a picture this past Sunday. So now here I am 23 weeks and 3 days and it's Wednesday and still no picture, so I'm just going to post without one! We had a very busy week last week! Randy's parents came in Wednesday and were here until Sunday! It was wonderful to see them. We've never really spent time alone with them and that was very special because who knows if and when we'll get to do that again! Then.... Randy graduated on Thursday! He's officially an army diver :) YAY! Friday was our appointment and everything went great. Little boy wouldn't move his hands or feet from his face to get a good shot. But he's measuring good. He was weighing about 1 pound and 6 ounces. I gained WAY too much weight this past month so I'm really watching it. As soon as we get to VA I've got some nutrisystem left so I'm going to do that for about a month to try to level it out! Very frustrating and dishearting! I wish I could be one of those TINY women pregnant and be adorable, guess not! And on Julietta and the ocean Randy just grabbed her on Friday and took her out, and she loved it! They were jumping the big waves. It's all she can talk about! We saw a pack of about 20 or more dolphins that were SO close. Randy was right up on one! That was pretty amazing! Then Sunday was mothers day, and Randy took his parents to the airport while I finished some school work. Then for dinner we went and got chinese. I have been craving Chinese food since we moved down here and we haven't found a place. So finally we went searching and it was AMAZING! So this next week is going to be VERY busy. We are packing up and leaving Sunday. We will get as far as we an that night and then make it the rest of the way to mom's on Monday. Then get all our baby stuff and leave Jules at mom's house and get to VA on Tuesday. Pray for us that we can find a place fast! So, I'm going to post some of the ultrasound pics and some pics with Randy's parents. I don't have a ton, his dad took a lot so I'm waiting for them to send them to me. Also there's a picture of Randy and I at his graduation. I look HUGE! I don't look that fat in person but it's the only one I got!

WHAT'S UP WITH BABY:
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With his sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that he's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound, you may be able to see him squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing him for entry into the outside world.

22 weeks


Well not much happened last week. Randy was in the field from Monday til Thursday. I took Julietta to the pool a couple days with some friends and surprise surprise she got in and loves it! Still FREAKS out if water gets in her face, but it's a big step that she likes to get in! We had some people over Saturday night and just kinda hung out at the house. Most everyone is leaving right after graduation so it was our last weekend with everyone down here. Other than that nothing really happened. This coming week will be our BIG week with Randy's parents coming, graduation, doctors appointment, and leave starting!!!

WHAT'S UP WITH BABY BOY!?
Well he's moving a lot still. We still have no names, but that's okay. I spoke with Aunt Marsha to see if there were any other family names that would have meant anything to dad, but there's not. We would like to do something, but sadly I don't want to stick my kid with Harry. I'm at about 11 pounds to 12 pounds of gain so far. I got addicted to iceepops this past week. I ate a TON of them. Something about the ice and sweet just hit the spot. I mean I turned down ice cream to have these things. That's how much I was addicted. Well, I didn't think they were THAT bad for me until I noticed they had about 100 calories in each one! YIKES! Soooo needlessly to say I think that's where some of the weight this past two weeks came from. So no more!!!Acording to Babycenter he should be at 11 inches and almost 1 pound. He is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily. We'll see how he looks this coming friday!
