Goin' Bananas! (& some pics... FINALLY)

So... I found the long lost camera cord and am getting the hang of the new computer! So that means WE'VE GOT PICS and a Baby Taylor update! Yay!

What's Baby Taylor up to this week?
Our baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a banana. Mom may may soon feel like (s)he's practicing martial arts as the initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. Mom may also discover a pattern to his/her activity as she gets to know her/him better. In other developments, our baby's eyebrows and lids are present now and his/her taste buds are functional. Baby is swallowing a lot of amniotic fluid these days for both hydration and nutrition. The amniotic fluid will taste like what mom eats.... so it looks like this babe's tasting a lot of peaches and steak! Some studies show that these are the tastes that the baby will take a liking to after birth as well.

I'm feeling good! I'm feeling lots of baby movements. Last night was the first night that it was actually distracting as I was trying to fall asleep. Up until last night I would only feel a flutter or kick or punch here and there... last night it felt like there was a whole breakdance routine going on in there!

**** and now for pics!****

This is the belly a week ago (20 weeks).... not much of a belly yet. I think I just look like I ate too much so my tummy's poochin' over the pants a little! :o)
This is me at 8 weeks for comparison.
And this picture just makes me smile. This is the first 3 (of many many many) pregnancy tests that came out POSITIVE! :o) and yes... that's a cup of pee! My best friend came over and was so excited that she wanted to dip a stick too (this may seem weird to some.. but we've been besties since the SECOND GRADE!) so I peed in a cup for her! HA HA! That's when you know you're close!

Until next time!!
The Taylors
