It snowed again yesterday in Dallas but did not stick around for today. I was hoping it would still be around for us to look at and enjoy but it wasn't. Oh well, it was pretty to drive home in yesterday evening. We have a lot coming up on our calendar. First up, we are going to Brandon and Shelby's for NYE to go out and eat dinner and play games with some other couples at their house. Low key and fun, just the way we like it. Then we will start our registering for our baby showers coming up, working on the nursery, going to a prepared childbirth class at the hospital, my glucose test and next doctors appointment, showers etc etc and before we know it Channing will be here!
Goodness, we look forward to updating everyone on everything coming up! Also, look for an updated belly picture tonight! I swear I am growing by leaps and bounds!

Last night I watched the Kendra and Baby show on E! Yes, I totally watched it and yes I felt a little emotional seeing her and her husband get ready and then finally have the baby! It is really just so exciting and to see how happy she was to finally be able to hold him made me want to cry. I can't wait for that moment! One thing I hope that ends up totally different in my story than it did in hers.... the baby weighed almost 10 pounds... good Lord help me!!
Anyway, I am 24 weeks tomorrow and there will be a belly update post! Yes, that means 6 months!!! Although, I did figure out why people say pregnancy is really 10 months... you would think I only have 3 months total left and that is not the case. I am not due until April 13Th or 14Th and that makes it almost 4 months left! Goodness gracious, it is a good thing I am having a fairly good time or finding that out would have made me mad!
Look for the belly update tomorrow!

How your baby's growing:
Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.

Pieces and Parts Everywhere!
She continues to enjoy the right side of my belly A LOT and sometimes that makes me uncomfortable, but she seems to be growing and doing great in there. We go for my next doctors appointment this Friday December 18th! I cant wait to hear her little heartbeat again!

The music was GREAT! They incorporated a few old Christmas songs with a lot of popular 'pop' songs. They had a Christmas Pops chorus singing with them on a few songs and a few featured performers as well. They even asked for volunteers from the audience and let one hilarious lady direct the symphony on that song! It was so fun.

Chan's Aunt Toni, Cousin Lexi & I at Thanksgiving lunch!!
Chandler's Grandmother gave us one of the most special gifts we have received yet! Above we are posing with her and her baby quilt from when she was a little girl! She thought Channing could enjoy it and we think she will for sure! What a thoughtful and sweet gift! We are honored to have this blanket for our little girl! Thank you Grandmother!

How your baby's growing:Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
