Week 21.

^^ Dress : Target

How Far!? - 21 weeks

How big is baby: The size of a Pomegranate! The ultrasound- tech told us baby weighed in at a whopping 13 ounces a couple days ago. It must be all that captain crunch I'm consuming. 

Craving: I crave popcorn chips. Have you ever had those things!? I will not say how many bags I went through on my own last week. 

Gender: a Mini Ryan!!!! AHHHHHHH! Or as Ryan would say "I'm gonna to have a little Brudda"!!! ( I feel like Ryan should be a rapper with the way he says things - apparently that's the cool way to say it )
I have to say, even though I was pretty convinced it was another boy before the ultrasound, I never thought in a million years I would have TWO boys!! I am so excited. BLUE BLUE BLUE and more BLUE. Perfect scenario. I will be completely outnumbered, but Ryan will have a best sports buddy and my husband will be in wonderland. Pretty sure I will be matching them in everything until Ryan is old enough to tell me it's not cool anymore.

Random: I ordered Ryan's big boy bed from PBK and the boys set it up last night. Ahhh I LOVE it so much! I can't wait to show you his darling room when it's all put together!

Feeling: So, this child is wild. Aaron just sits there with his hand on my tummy every night while our little guy has his "boxing" session. 

If you can't tell, this is my sweet baby's little ankle and tootsie! ^^ See his little toes!!! AHHH! So this is what has been kicking me like crazy. All of the sudden I can't sleep lately because he's wide awake conveniently at 11 PM. It's like deja vu all over again - ( Mini Ryan )

Here's to being over halfway and being so so so so so so excited to bring another sweet baby BOY into this world!

from the bottom of my heart for all the sweet comments about our baby boy #2!!!

Gosh, I love him so much already.
( These boys seriously kill your heartstrings )
