Life with the Wallaces

>18 weeks


>Head to rump, your baby is approximately 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and weighs almost 7 ounces. She’s busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. If you’re having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you’re having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, although he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.
How Far Along: 18 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss: gain 5.6 lbs overall (+ .8 lbs this week)
Maternity Clothes: I got a bunch for Christmas love it! They are so comfortable
Best Moment of the Week: finding out our baby is a girl-Morgan Elizabeth!
Movement: she is one very active baby, she loves to play kickboxing on her mommy’s tummy and Chad loves to tap my side and sometimes she will kick him back hes loving it and thinks its the funnies thing ever. Of course I have figured out she already has her days and nights mixed up since she loves to kick at night but is pretty quiet during the morning/afternoon
Food Craving: fruit & smoothies!
Food aversions: nothing
Morning sickness: none
Gender: a GIRL-Morgan Elizabeth
Labor Signs: hopefully not for a long time
Belly Button: in
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach but it is getting much easier
What I’m looking forward to: going to register tomorrow for our baby I cant wait!
Weekly Wisdom:
But he said, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.” Luke 18:27
Milestones: seeing all the gifts that Baby Morgan received and seeing just how much she is already loved by everyone, its just amazing to see the wonderful gift God has given us.
Baby Morgan received lots of gifts toys, clothes, piggy bank, blanket and she also got her crib, dresser, playyard, and mattress along with her stuff that my cousin brought down. I will have to take pictures of it all at least the little goodies the furniture still has to be put together and all and room needs to be painted as well. She is one very loved girl by all our family and of course her mommy and daddy love her very much as well:)

I have a ton of pictures to upload from our Christmas so maybe tomorrow or Tuesday Ill get those uploaded before we head away for a few days to Nashville for the New Year!
