16 weeks

16 Weeks Pregnant!
June 3 - 9
*a little late in our weekly update
These fruit and veggie comparisons are so funny. It has more to do with length not overall size. But really, babies are all different sizes at this point. So from an orange to an avocado?? Hmm ok. 

What a lovely week it has been. 
I am more confident that I am now feeling my little one move! I was waiting for a butterfly feeling but never really felt it. Then someone else described it as a muscle spasm/tinge and I have definitely felt that. Actually, for almost 3 weeks now. I love it. I think it feels even more real than hearing the heart beat. I love laying in bed in the morning and feeling my baby move. 
June 5th Michael and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary.
June 6th we celebrated 7 years of being in love. 
We feel so blessed and are beyond excited for this next year of our life. 
Dinner at Flyte. 
(Pregnant people can't take a picture without touching their belly, btw)
I love Nashville. 
I love all the free festivals and events. 
Enjoying the East Nashville Hootenanny with family and friends.  
Oh the weeds... 
We definitely planted less this year knowing full well that my pregnant self would not like gardening quite as much as last year. But 1st trimester really set me back! It was wonderful getting back into the garden. I love growing these plants while I grow a baby. There is something therapeutic about the whole process.
Eeek! My belly seeing the sun for the first time in a LONG time. 
It was so great spending the day with Becca & Jonathan and Lauren & Evan. 
I also loved swimming at Edwin Warner Park. Just a great day all around. 

I am so grateful for such a supportive family! My mom surprises me with maternity clothes and my sister patiently listens to me ramble on and on about the latest baby thing. She is going to make the BEST aunt ever!

I also can't imagine going through this journey without Becca Moody. 
Read her blog here.
We just started a pre-natal yoga class together and we are signed up for the same birthing class. Having that support and camaraderie has been such a blessing for me. I am so excited for when are babies (probably 1 week apart) will have play dates :)

Starting to get my pregnancy rhythm and really loving this season.
