it's official...

After SO much consideration and contemplation we have finally decided to make our first choice on our name list official. When Travis and I first heard this name we loved it but jumping off the cliff and making it official was so much harder than I thought. We chose this name because it is unique but not too weird and because there was nothing else that we both agreed on as much as this name. So I'm sure you are biting your nails at this point... :) his name will be easton samuel harville. easton is the name we loved, samuel is in memory of Travis's best friend and cousin that is no longer with us, and harville comes with the territory :) We can't wait to meet him!

24 weeks

At my ultrasound appointment the tech told me that my baby boy was measuring two weeks ahead but that was totally normal. Normal??! Am I going to have a giant baby? So last week when I got to see my doctor I asked her what that meant. She said he was not measuring two weeks ahead (what a relief!). But as she looked at my chart she said "oh" and proceeded to tell me that his abdomen is measuring two weeks ahead. :) Im assuming that means he already has a belly. At least it's cuter to imagine him that way.

Baby's now the size of a papaya!
Baby's skin is becoming more opaque as the fat starts to pack on. And, thanks to the formation of small capillaries, her newly thick skin is taking on a fresh pink glow.
