22 weeks and growing...

My baby belly has popped out so much faster the second time around. I was already struggling to button my jeans at 8 weeks and by 12 weeks, the belly had emerged and I was wearing maternity clothes. I wasn't in maternity clothes until about 20-22 weeks into the pregnancy with Sophie so it has been fun to see my belly grow much quicker this time. I love the baby belly! Here is a picture documenting the growth so far (courtesy of my aspiring photographer, Sophie)...

Our baby girl seems to be doing well and I am feeling much more movement these days. The first time I felt her move was at 16 weeks when Sophie placed her little hand on my belly. By 20 weeks, I could feel her move at least once everyday. Clint was finally able to feel her move for the first time last week. He said, "That's wierd." We could also see her kicking her little feet and moving all around in there as my belly moved seemingly on it's own...also very wierd for him. This is my favorite time of pregnancy and when I remember beginning to really bond with Sophie. These first little movements are our first interactions with each other...so amazing!
