16 Weeks

How far along: 16 Weeks
Size of Baby: about 4 1/2 inches long. Last week the doctor said the baby was 4 ounces.
Maternity Clothes: Shorts, some shirts. Still love to wear my comfy stretchy pants and longer regular tops.
Gender: It's a BOY!!!
Movement: Haven't felt him move yet, but the books say it could happen anytime now. Most people I have talked to say it happened for them more around 20 weeks.
What I miss: Nothing. I love being preggo!
Sleep: I toss and turn a lot during the night, but sleep the best in a nice cool room with the fan blowing and a big extra pillow to snuggle with (and Barrett too.)
Symptoms: This week I have really begun to notice being out of breath at times - even when I have no reason to be out of breath.
Cravings: I would have to say pizza and artichokes! Mmmm, we are having artichokes again tonight with our dinner. I can't wait!
Aversions: I still don't like the thought of seafood.
Best moment of the week: I really feel like this week my tummy has started to pop out some. It is fun to know it is because of our baby boy is growing bigger and stronger.
What I look forward to: Hearing the little guys heartbeat tomorrow at my 16 week appointment!

  1. Tanya and Barrett,

    This Is Such A Wonderful Little Creation God Has Brought You Both, I Am So Happy For You Both,You Both Are Going to Make Outstanding,Wonderful And The Best Parents In The World.God Bless You Both!!! Love You Both!!!

    My Blessing To Both Of you:

    Tanya touch your child,
    Barett,hug your son tight,
    Let Your Son know you love him
    morning, noon, and night.

    Put your arms around Him,
    hold Him near to you,
    Feel the beating of His heart,
    the life that you made new.

    Roll around the floor with him,
    tease and laugh and play,
    Listen to what he'll tell you,
    he has so much to say.

    Take time to get to know him,
    see the colors in his eyes,
    Appreciate that person
    that deep inside him lies.

    Let him run his fingers through your hair
    and down your face,
    Fill his heart with words of praise,
    make home his favorite place.

    Cuddle with him on the couch
    and watch a t.v. show,
    Sing with him or share a book
    and help his world to grow.

    Take a walk into the park,
    hold each other's hand,
    Smell the flowers, feed the ducks,
    build castles in the sand.

    Tanya, touch your child,
    Barett, hug your son tight,
    Show him what a wonderful gift he is to you both,
    to love him feels so right.
