 Gender: Little Man!!!
How far along? 20 weeks half way point
Baby Size: A small cantaloupe
Total weight gain: 10 lbs
Maternity clothes? I am living in leggings and a lot of black. I feel like when I walk out of the house everyday I have ALL black on! Trying to look thinner after all of the holiday indulgences I guess?!
Stretch marks? No, but I need to buy my favorite body oil by Basq now that the weather is making my skin feel drier
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back & my skinny jeans.
How my life has changed so far: Buying blue, I have been living in a house exploding with pink tutus, hair bows, glitter shoes, dolls, and all things girly for the past 2 years. The boy side of the store is foreign to me! Its the best of both worlds I get to shop both sides of the store!
Movement: At night when I'm trying to get comfortable in bed I get a few really powerful jabs.  Little goodnight Mom I love you punches:)
Food cravings: The holidays aren't helping me make healthy eating choices. I'm craving gingerbread/molasses cookies, lots of lemon/lime Gatorade, and Artichokes.
Symptoms: This pregnancy I had a few weeks of acne which was a real treat but it seems to be gone now!

 Gender: Baby Boy!!!!!!
How far along? 13 weeks
Baby Size: Lemon
Total weight gain: 3 lbs  
Exercise: None besides chasing Kinsley around!  Need to start walking around the neighborhood and get moving! 
Recent happenings? We just found out the sex of the baby! Matt wasn't able to make it to my doctor appointment, so I surprised him at work with a little baby boy football tee(above). He was speechless and then he went down the hall to tell his colleague! We couldn't be more excited and feel so blessed.
How my life has changed so far: I cherish Kinsley's nap time, its the highlight of my day! Not because she is sleeping but because I myself take a little afternoon siesta, I sleep so hard its unbelievable.  
Movement: I have felt this tiny dude a handful of times already, I can't believe how fast things are progressing!
Food cravings: All things sweet and grilled cheese sandwiches!
Symptoms: My nausea has subsided and now I find myself hungry all the time, more so than when I was pregnant with Kinny.
