19 weeks {babybrink#2}

I spy with my little eye... a little Courtney (should have cropped the photo) with the light hitting the belly just right to make a bump appear!
Size of baby: a large mango. We actually have a mango in the fridge right now and it's so crazy to think that this baby has already grown to this size! Time is flying!

Movement: lots of little pokes and jabs. These are the sweetest moments when I feel him moving around, especially because the movement is so pain free right now, ha ha! Eric has been feeling the movement for the past couple of weeks but I haven't even tried to have Mia feel it. Once baby grows bigger and the movements are easier for her to acknowledge, we'll have her feel the movement as well!

Cravings: watermelon and ice cream. Both of which I have NOT indulged. Ugh! I keep forgetting to add watermelon to the grocery list so I keep walking out without it... and don't remember until I'm home. I need watermelon ASAP!

Miss anything: feeling sane? I don't know what the deal is but between pregnancy, perhaps some sleep deprivation (a good thing, I had an early morning wake up call to be pampered for Mother's Day!) and Mother's Day... my emotions have been cray. Can I blame it on pregnancy hormones? I think I'll blame all my craziness on pregnancy while I can ;)

Random: I am sleeping through the night again and it's heavenly! I don't know what was up during the first trimester, but sleep was HORRIBLE for me! I'm definitely soaking up the sleep while I can because I know that third trimester is miserable when it comes to sleeping at night :)

Best moment of the week: We have our ultra sound photos hanging on the fridge and a few days ago I was holding Mia while standing next to the fridge, she pointed at one of the ultra sound photos and said, "baby brudder?!" Melt my momma heart! That's the first time she's called him baby brother all on her own, without any prompting from us! And just yesterday, Mother's Day morning, while playing in the kitchen she paused to point at the ultra sound photos and again exclaimed, "baby brudder!" So sweet!

P.S. In case you missed it, we are calling baby a "him" because we officially announced that we are having a BOY!

"baby brudder" melt. my. heart. she's so sweet :) Ugh sleep has been awful for me in the first trimester, I really hope it improves because I'm a little crazy... and I'm definitely blaming it on the hormones. You look fantastic and I just love your little bump :)

That's so sweet Mia can say Baby Brudder! I can't believe Eric can feel baby move already? I have been feeling it for a long time already but J can't feel anything yet. Hopefully this week! Cute lil bump!

Aww!!! I love that she knows 'Baby Brudder'. I let the little girl that I watch feel Charlie recently and seeing her eyes light up were priceless. I hope you can get it on video, but I know it's hard enough to time getting the movements in general on camera.
