Pregnancy Update - 28 Weeks

So this weekend, my Sister (who is an amazing photographer - here is her business Reflections by Amanda Rooney) did a maternity photo shoot with Brant and I. I really wanted to post a few more pictures for you, but Sister says I can't until she has them all edited! But today, she posted this picture on her site for the I Heart Faces weekly contest. The only requirement- a HUMAN face - so how perfect is this little human's face?

As of today, I am 28 weeks along - Officially in my third trimester! It is crazy to think that I am 2/3rd through my pregnancy. It has gone by so quickly.

Here is what is going on with Baby Girl.

Size of the baby: She is 2 1/4 lbs and almost 15" long - about the size of a Chinese cabbage.
Total weight loss/gain: 24 lbs - although my scale only says about 20! The dr. is now monitoring my weight closely only because I didn't gain anything the first 4 months!
Maternity clothes: Just tops. Most of my pants still fit with the help of the belly band.
Gender: It's a Girl! Emmalee Caroline Williams
Movement: Feeling it all the time and loving it. She gave Brant a good kick a few weeks ago - it was his first real time to feel her. Now he feels her quite a bit. She is still very calm, but has more power to her punch!
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well - no complaints here!
What I miss: Being about to move around freely - I can't bend down very well, I seem to literally roll myself out of bed, and I can't clean my house very well b/c it hurts my back!
Cravings: Not really craving anything.
Symptoms: a BIG belly
Fun Facts: Emmalee is growing beautiful, long eyelashes and her eyesight is developing.

Well this weekend we went to visit my mom's family in Shreveport, which is where we took the maternity pictures. Downtown Shreveport has some GREAT old buildings and structures. I can't wait to see how some of these pictures turned out! We came home Saturday night, went to church yesterday, then came home and cleaned house. It was such a gorgeous day that I went out into the garage and finished painting, destressing and putting the crystal knobs on EmC's dresser. Then I started painting the crosses for a project I am doing in her room. Well lets just say that bending over for 2 hours painting crosses is NOT good for a pregnant woman's back! Today I am feeling the pain. But, I am happy to say that her room is coming almost quite nicely and I can't wait to show you pictures of the finished product!!!!

Well, as most of you in the nation are probably preparing for, we are in for some nasty cold weather the next few days. Stay safe...and WARM!!!!
