Five Months

And still hanging in there! Went to the Doctor today and everything still looks great. Keep praying! For those of you who don't know, we are having a girl! Very exciting, though anyone who knows Eric and I knows that this will not be a girly girl. The funny thing is only 10% thought we were having a girl according to the blog. Maybe it's because our girl will be a tomboy princess kind of a girl. I keep reminding people that pink is not my favorite color. In fact we're thinking that we'll do the nursery in red and white. I know, not the usual, but hey who wants usual. I am thinking a garden theme with red roses and other bright flowers. Little bitty has been starting to kick and wiggle a little more strongly. The morning sickness is still there but not as strong. I can usually get out of the house by 10:00 now with only a little queasiness.

Poor Eric still doesn't get fed. I have developed this distaste, okay, abhorrence for chicken. It makes cooking really difficult and I feel so bad! He is really aptient though. Thankfully our friends Whitney and Louie are taking good care of us and making sure that Eric gets fed. In the other times I am grateful that I am working and we are supporting the economy of the restaurant industry. :-)

We're headed into the scariest part over the next three weeks. It is a countdown to when we lost Lily so it's really scary. My Doctor is going to start seeing me twice a week most likely. He's watcing really closely to make sure that we notice anything as it comes. He says that the baby look really great and everything is perfect right now.

Thanks for all the prayers! Love Eric and Nellie and Little Bitty TomgirlThis is Caesar's new favorite way to sleep.. and look he brought me a toy to play with when I wake up.

I'm so glad to hear things are going well right now! I can already imagine you're tomgirl princess ;) I don't remember you caring for pink a lot, maybe that's where I picked that up. You, Eric and Little Bitty are in my prayers. Love ya'll
