My Little Girl Is Growing Up

I don't know where this time is going, but Lexi Belle has all of the sudden turned into a little girl. I got her dressed for church on Sunday and she just looked so big. She is starting to talk SO much more. We were a little worried because she wasn't talking very much, but she has really started to! She says "Ellie" and it is the CUTEST thing you have ever heard. I need to get a video of it soon because seriously, it makes me melt.  I snapped a couple pictures yesterday of Lexi and her Daddy. She has been so into him lately (as always). When he walks in after work she screams, "DADDY!" I think I get more enjoyment out of HIS face when she does this. She runs over and wraps her little arms around his neck and I can tell---she has him wrapped right around her little finger. :)

Look at her little hands in the second picture. Melts. My. Heart.

I'm also 20 weeks today. Hopefully I will do an update tomorrow or Wednesday. We go see our doctor tomorrow, so I thought I'd wait so my documentation would be more accurate. Frankly I'm scared to see what the scale says. Food loves me and I love it. True story.

Happy Monday friends.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, pants and some tanks for layering
Stretch Marks: No, thank goodness!
Belly Button: In
Sleep: Some nights are better than others. I have the craziest preggo dreams! I didn't have them this bad with Lexi, but this go-round they are nuts! I wake up pretty much every night after one.

Queasy or sick: Neither :)
Looking Forward To: Our appointment next week. We were suppose to go today, but this crazy snow kept us from it! Ugh!

A couple of new things that are working great for me this pregnancy that I haven't mentioned yet:

1. Old Navy's Maternity Tami- These things are great! And CHEAP! Win, win. They do run a little big. I usually order a small from ON, but after reading reviews I opted for an XS. They are super stretchy and long enough to layer perfectly with a growing baby bump!

2. J. Crew's Knit Cardi- These are the best! They will work great for after baby, too! They are on sale right now and come in 5 great colors, so hurry on over and snag you one, or 5 :)
