16 Weeks

Well, I wanted the Dutch to win the world cup but they just couldn't pull it off today.... and I just ate HUGE crepe filled with bananas & Nutella. Wow, it was so rich that I feel like I need to drink a gallon of water.

Anyway, I have not been feeling very inspired to blog lately. I think I'll be somewhat "fading out" of the blogosphere, but I still love following those on my blog roll, and I always appreciate the comments from those still reading my occasional posts.

I'm now 16 weeks and the bump is out! Our ultrasound on Wednesday went well and we found out that there is a BOY in there! The other baby was not showing us the goods, so we'll have to wait to find out that one's gender for another month. I've had so many people (mostly fertiles) tell me that I should let it be a surprise. But, per my last post, I am so OVER uncertainty. I want to know everything I can.

We started getting a few gifts this past week and it is all becoming increasingly real. I'm still putting them in a a closet..but it's fun to start assembling some little, cute things! I think after week 20 we are going to start doing our own shopping.

In the near term, I've got a very busy week planned (probably too busy). We've got dinner out with friends, a musical on Wednesday, a girls night on Thursday and we drive to Tahoe for the weekend on Friday. I'm doing the swim leg of a triathlon relay up there which should be fun. I've been swimming a few times a week and it feels awesome. In fact, I'm off to the pool right now...


  1. Alice, I am grinning from ear to ear for you right now.

    I love that you're in such a good place, and HOLY CROW congrats on your little boy!!! That must be a little frustrating to have to wait to find out the sex of the other baby... Seeing's how you've waited long enough to get to this point.

    Have a wonder trip, and good luck in your mini triathlon!

  2. Congratulations on 16 weeks and on your little BOY! I hope his brother or sister is more cooperative at the next u/s. :) Enjoy your trip and your swim!

  3. Happy 16 weeks!! And congratulation on find out at least one baby's gender!! Much love, Fran

  4. Congrats on 16 weeks and your baby BOY and baby ?! Can't wait to hear what the other one is :-)

    Enjoy your trip.

  5. Awwww, a boy! And that crepe--that got me excited too :)
