26 weeks

I'm at 26 weeks today and we are both steadily growing.  Baby Kate can now hear me and Brian carry on a conversation.

Baby's size: 14 inches and a pound and a two thirds, about the size of an English hothouse cucumber.  
Cravings:  ice cream and Mexican.  For the record, I've had NO ice cream!  I'll break soon.
How I'm feeling:  pretty good.  I'm still having Braxton Hicks that force me to sit down and relax from time to time.  
Sleep:  I sleep great!  
My favorite part of this week:  She just kicks and kicks and it cracks me up!  The doctor said something like, "she moves a lot....good luck with that!"  I told Brian that I think we have a feisty one because I don't remember Harper moving this much.  I can also completely feel her outline at times.  It is weird!  I know where her head and feet are and can feel her on the outside.  Let me just say, she is 14 inches from head to toe, and she is tiny.  She needs to stay in the hot tub for a while.

Planning:  Our bedding finally shipped and the furniture should be here soon!  Harper is getting ready for a new little sister; for Christmas she got a baby doll that cries, sucks on a pacifier, and eats a bottle.  She has two babies-a little one I let her have during our angel tree shopping trip (she made it almost hour in the toy section and was so good) and the big one she got on Christmas morning.  She usually brings me the big baby and says, "mommy's baby" then she rocks the little one and says, "Harper's baby."  How cute.  Let's just hope that she doesn't try to stuff her little sister into her Winnie the Pooh car like she does the play baby.
