19!! I can't believe we are almost halfway!!!
Next week we go in for another ultrasound to see our little one!
We cannot wait!
I love my bump! I love feeling him kick me,
I honestly love it all...
This week is going to be a little different,
because I'm flying out to Utah and meeting my wonderful familia in St. George
and I cannot wait!
I have missed them way too much!
It's hard to go from seeing them weekly/daily your whole life
 to seeing them every other month.:(
Unfortunately because of law school,
Aaron can't come..
(my siblings are so sad, Aaron is the favorite in the family)
It makes me sad to think of leaving him for a week,
I'm going to miss my sweet handsome husband!
Hopefully I will be able to sleep!

I completely jinxed myself into saying that "I have so much more energy lately"
on week 18.
I have learned that you definitely have your days!

Turns out this "energy thing" only
lasts about 3 days here and there.

I woke up the other day, (barely woke up, I felt abnormally tired)
I went to work, came home at 5 and ATTEMPTED to
go on a run. Made it about 4 miles,
and decided there is no way I can go any farther,
(the 90% humidity and 85 degree heat didn't help any I'm sure).
Came home, fell asleep on the FLOOR,
in my running clothes.
Aaron comes home, wakes me up after he finishes working out
around 7.
No dinner ready.- wife fail.

Aaron makes me a couple eggs and a smoothie (such a sweetheart)
It took me about 10 minutes to eat,
and I was back on the couch,
and within minutes.... ASLEEP.
Aaron carries me up to bed,
tucks me in,
and I slept all night long.
I don't know if I have ever felt so tired,

So I have definitely learned that you have your days,
some days the little one takes it all out of you....
but I wouldn't trade this process for the world.
You think you love each other more than anything when you get married,
and somehow that love grows 100 times when you go through this process together,
just when you thought it couldn't grow anymore.
I honestly love it.

This week our baby is the size of a Large Heirloom Tomato,
weighs about 8.5 ounces, and 6 inches long!

He's growing each and every day! I/we feel it!
