Wow, I didn't realize it's been since Friday that I've posted last. I go tomorrow for an ultrasound to see how far along I actually am. I really hope I'm more like 10 weeks than 5. That means one less one to go! We'll see tomorrow!

I haven't gotten much done around the house at all. I've been so tired. Not much in the way of morning sickness except for some evenings I get nauseated. And not to mention today I ate a bowl of cereal and drank a glass of milk and threw that up. When I was pregnant with Joey, the only thing I wanted was milk but NOT THIS TIME!

I got a call from one of my best friends, Eric, from back in Ohio today. He's coming December 7-10 to see us. I'm so excited! Since we're not going back to Ohio for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it's going to be so nice to see one of my friends. My parents are coming up for Christmas, but it's still not going to be the same. This will be my first Christmas not in Ohio.

Onto a Joey update! He's still not sitting, but getting very close! He's sitting for about 20 seconds at a time and he really seems to want to sit on his own. He gets so frustrated! It seems like everyday he turns into more of a little person. His personality keeps coming out and he gets funnier each day. He's getting new facial expressions and says new sounds all the time! Not to mention he's rolling so much now! It also seems like he's wanting to crawl. He lays on his belly and his little arms and legs move so fast but he goes no where. He still needs more strength to get up on his hands and knees.

Ohhhh!! And today Joey turns 8 months old! I can't believe my baby is 8 months old! The time has flown by!!

Well, I guess that's it for now!

Hi! Sounds like Joey is doing really well! Have you tried the small corner chairs? That helped my Joe to sit up for longer periods of time. Our early intervention OT or PT (can't remember!) brought it to our home.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! And Joey sounds like he's doing great. Have you heard of the bumbo chair? I haven't used one, but they're supposed to be great for increasing stomach and back muscles for sitting up.

Great Job Joey! And Happy 8-months birthday. Hope you feel better too, nausea sucks :-)

Heather Noel said...

Yeah 8 months old!! (only 4 more months to the big one). I hope you start feeling better soon.

Joey has a Bumbo, but he already outgrew it! He discovered he can lean out of it to reach stuff and gets out of it!
