She has become a lot more verbal in the last month or so. She still doesn't have a ton of words but her two favorite at the moment are "hot" and "up" along with "mama" and "dada". A few of her other words are "crack-ca" (cracker), "coo-coo" (cookie), "mmmm" (milk) and "nigh-nigh". I'm sure there are others I am forgetting but that's what we get out of her at the moment. She is still doing great with her signs, she is such a smart girl. She also has the memory of an elephant, the girl doesn't forget anything. I have mentioned to her a few times that there is a baby in mommy's tummy and every time I say anything about the baby, she reaches over and rubs my belly :) I love it.
Speaking of the baby, this pregnancy is literally flying by. I will be 20 weeks on Friday! It needs to slow down just a bit, I'm not sure if I'm ready to embrace two under two just yet. We had planned on being "team green" and not finding out the gender but I just couldn't do it. We went and had an elective ultrasound done a couple of weeks ago and found out that Sophia will have a littler sister!! I am so excited. I wanted her to have a sister so badly. I can't wait for them to meet, and hopefully become the best of friends.
As of right now we are planning on the girls sharing a room so we have been brainstorming on how we will rearrange the room to fit both cribs and all the toys and whatnot in one room. We want to keep the 3rd bedroom a guestroom for now. That is if we don't move before the baby comes. We are kind of looking right now but it's one of those if we find something and sell our house great, if not that's fine too. We'll see.
Here's another bump pic, this one is from last friday, 19 weeks
When I went to the OB yesterday, he informed me that I am carrying this baby super high just like I did with Sophia. Great, just waiting on the reflux to kick in any day now! I had it so bad with Sophia since she was so high and I'm definetely not looking forward to that.
Anyway, here are a few pics from the last couple of months since I've been slacking...
