My third post about Mother's Day and Juice Drop's Update

My second mother's day was absolutely perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better, more relaxed day and I think the best part was the very end when Travis exclaimed, "that was one of the hardest days of my life." Uh uh, welcome to my life, buddy. Now you won't question what I do all day and scoff when all I want to do is fall into bed as soon as I lay Anna down. It really was a wonderful day though. It was full of me doing a lot of nothing and receiving a lot of love and affection (and great food--that's always a must). The day was completed with a special Mother's Day journal written in by Travis and colored in by Anna and will continue to be throughout the years. It's my all time favorite gift because it's the gift that keeps on giving. Ever year I'll be able to look back and see what my man and children have written or drawn for me and every year there will be a brand new entry with thoughts and pictures of love that only a mother would cherish. It's crazy to think next year I'll be enjoying my third mother's day with two little ones. It's still so hard to believe but it is getting more real considering I've finally felt little pitter patters against my belly! I almost forgot what that felt like but as soon as it happened on Friday night there was no doubt in my mind it was our little Juice Drop in there letting me know he/she is real. I didn't even mind that it was close to midnight and the flutters were keeping me awake. Best. Feeling. Ever.

How far along? 16 Weeks
How big is baby? the size of an avocado and can hear our voices. He/she will know Anna's voice very well by the end of all this! 
Total weight gain: I've been packing on those pounds. I'm chalking it up to my uterus expanding at an exponential rate and knowing exactly what it's doing since this isn't my first rodeo.  
Maternity clothes? some days
Sleep: just ok, but again it's because I can't breath. Allergies are the worst.
Best moment this week: How can I not say my mother's day??
Miss Anything? sushi. I saw some at the grocery store this week and couldn't help but salivate over them. First meal after this baby comes!
Movement: YES!!! 
Food cravings: anything and everything
Gender: our ultrasound is a week from today and we'll find out the 24th with our friends and family! ...had another dream Juice Drop is a boy! 
Symptoms: bloody noses, a few headaches, bloating, and heartburn. I feel like an old man. 
Belly Button in or out? in between
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy!
Looking forward to: the pool at the YMCA opening! It's been so hot! What happened to spring?

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! Don't get too wet out there :)
