Week 13

Today is the start of week 13 of this pregnancy, maybe this week I'll get my so called energy back. I went to my MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) meeting today and got to show off my "baby bump" for the first time. So exciting!! I love going there because it's a fun time with other moms playing games, doing crafts and eating goodies. As a leader we were supposed to bake goodies to put in a basket for all the child care workers and I have been so lazy lately that making brownies was the best I could offer. This weekend I will be getting some more baking supplies and actually making it feel a little bit more Christmassy around here. Tomorrow I will also be finishing up the rest of our Christmas shopping. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Grandpa Poppy sent up a gift card for the kids and we decided to just pick out presents for Dylan rather than letting him so he'll have more to open on Christmas day. (thanks everyone who has sent the kids gifts so far too, we'll make sure they get thanks-yous out early :)
I also realized that I have been taking all of these pictures from my so called bad side so I might have to change up my formatting. At 13 weeks the baby is over 2 inches long (on one website it said the baby could be anywhere from 2-4 inches long) and almost a full ounce (.91 oz) The baby is the size of a Peach! All this talk of fruit is making me hungry.


  1. You don't have a bad side honey. You are beautiful everywhere--even the baby bump!

  2. So cute! I can't wait to see you in person next Saturday!

  3. Shannon, I know your bump is bigger by now. You are so very darling, and I'm very excited for you. Let me know if there is anything we can do for you!
