20 Weeks!

Noah's foot, his toes are pointing to the left.
Noah's profile, you can see his little nose and lips and chin! So cute!
Another of his profile, I just can't get enough!
So we got our 20 week ultra sound on Wednesday! As you can tell, it's a boy! We are sooo excited! His name is Noah Ryan Sams. It was the most wonderful thing to see him again in the ultra sound. He was just moving around like crazy in there. I've been able to feel him moving since about 18 weeks but I can't feel all his movements so to see just how active he really is was amazing. The tech was taking measurements of his heart and other organs and he just kept flipping around showing off his little bottom. It was very cute. He weighs 12 ounces right now and is about 10 inches long from head to toe.

It's so great to finally know and I am still in awe of the fact that we have a son! I can't believe how much I love him already. I hear it only gets worse after he's born, lol. Anyway, I just wanted to update everyone on that.

I had to go back to working full time for now. We had a staff member leave so while she's looking for someone to hire, I get to work all day. Yay me...I also had to change my hours so now I work 10-7.

It's crazy to think I'm halfway to the birth of little Noah, it feels like it's gone by really fast in some ways and really slowly in others. I know some people will be curious so just to let you all know, Ryan and I just really love the name Noah. It's not a family name or anything. Obviously Ryan is after his daddy, I wanted to make it meaningful but also give him his own identity. So there you have it, Noah Ryan.

We are choosing to decorate the nursery in a Noah's ark theme. Fitting, right? The walls, as you've seen are yellow and I think we're going to add another color but it's a surprise what it will be right now. (meaning we haven't picked it yet) It's hard to find a really cute Noah's ark crib set so I think we're just going with an animal themed one and we'll add in the other elements to tie it all in. I am so excited to see it all put together!

I'm still feeling great although I think I might be getting something from one of the kids at work. I just feel blah. It is flu season and I'm doing everything I can to avoid it but we'll see. I hope everyone is doing great and can also avoid getting sick this year. We hope to see you all soon!
