Our Little Cantaloupe!

* This week her digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

I have been feeling fantastic lately, a little tired but not getting sick anymore! 

She is a dancing machine, just like Isabell was and that puts my heart at ease! 

Just last week I had to break out my big girl pants not because my regular ones didn't fit but I wear low rise jeans and it just didn't look right anymore!  When I look in the mirror, it looks like I ate too much but I know that it's only a matter of time before she REALLY pops! 

I am having the same cravings that I did with Isabell, so weird, salad and fruit and I can't wait for summer to get here so we can have fresh stuff anytime we want.  The store bought stuff just doesn't last and that's not only because I am snacking all the time but because it seems to spoil really fast.

We picked out her bed set and once we get the basement finished, we will be working on the girls' rooms!

I started the list of what we will need for her but since Isabell was born September 7th and this one is due on September 12th, we won't have to buy a TON of clothes.  I kept almost everything so that will be nice!

We have NO CLUE what her name will be and according to my nephew, her name shall be "Petunia"  We have a list of NO WAYS but we are taking suggestions!

I will try to pass the camera to Christopher so he can take some shots within the next few days!  Please continue to pray that our little cantaloupe stays healthy and continues to grow!

It will be hilarious if both of your girls end up with the same birthday! We haven't decided on a name 100%. It's a hard decision. But Isabell has a beautiful name, so I am sure this little girl will too.
