From Apple to Avacado

This past Thursday was the start of the 4th month in our 10 month wait to have our baby. The baby has grown from being an apple to an avocado. The baby is now about 4 1/2 inches long and should weigh about 3 1/2 oz. According to in the next few weeks our baby will double his or hers weight and add inches to the length. I also should be able to feel some movement any time now but realistically I probably won't notice it until a few weeks from now.

When I was looking for prenatal classes online, I cam e across this local business, Baby Bump Motherhood Center . They have many services available for the expecting parents and one of them is prenatal exercise classes. Yesterday I took my first two classes which were Bump on the Ball and Prenatal Yoga. Each class was 45 minutes long and one after another. The center is very cute. Its a small building set back away from the busy road it is on and is decorated with pinks, greens and yellows inside. When I walked in I was greeted by the owner (I believe) and Joy the fitness instructor. Both were very friendly and the classes were great. They are only held every Saturday but Joy did let us know that she is trying to get a few classes during the week scheduled. It was very nice and relaxing. There were 5 ladies plus the instructor in the classes which was the perfect amount for the room we were in. I liked being in a small class, it makes it easier to interact and see the instructor. I haven't really taken Yoga before but I really did enjoy it. The center has other services available such as massage therapy, 3D and 4D ultrasounds and maternity portraits. It such a great idea for a business!!

This Wednesday we are off to Texas to visit my friends and to meet their new additions to their families.

We have an Apple

Its the beginning of week 15 and our baby has grown to the size of an apple. I am feeling good and can't wait to find out if we are going to have a boy or girl. It really doesn't matter but I want to know so that we can call the baby a name or him or her instead of baby. I also want to know so that I can pick out decorations for the nursery.

I recently went shopping for maternity clothes and realized that the selection in the stores are not that great. They are not horrible but nothing that fun for an expecting mom. Jacob found this fun website that sells more trendy or rock and roll clothing for prego woman. It has some fun clothes on the site that I think I am going to order. If I was talented I would design or open up a store that had fun, trendy clothes for expecting moms.

Speaking of moms, we are leaving tomorrow to go visit Jacob's parents tomorrow. I haven't seen them in a very long time. Warning: I do have a belly :) I am excited to see the progress of there remodeling and spending some time with them

Welcome Baby Aaron

Aaron was born to Linda and Sean on Tuesday April 28th. He is the youngest of 3 boys and looks exactly like the oldest brother. Aaron made his 1st appearance in public on May 2nd and was the perfect guess at our friend Kelli's baby shower. Her bundle of joy should be here mid June.

Look at those cheeks!!
