#2: Week 13.

Finally finished up the first trimester. So ready for that burst of energy and appetite everyone is reminding me I got last go around. I haven't been miserable in the past few weeks but just not my normal self... just my pregnant normal self :)

13 weeks along.
Through the first trimester I had about a month of feeling pretty nauseous. But besides that it really has just been mainly lack of an appetite and less energy. One of the things I was most worried about with being pregnant with my second was that I wouldn't have enough energy to take care of Cameron. Thankfully most days have been fine, every once in a while he will have a bad day on a day I'm extremely tired. Those days we usually just hang at home and hibernate! 
It's so fun to compare this 13 weeks picture to mine last pregnancy. I'm definitely "showing" much more this go round. Although, I feel like I'm not showing "to the world" yet but I'm sure some people who don't know I'm pregnant are wondering what's up with the extra weight! haha
I've been working out atleast 3 times a week this pregnancy. I'm hoping that this will help me to gain more slowly this time and lose the weight faster after!
I've been to the doctor twice so far. First for our initial visit where we got to see our little munchkin and then our second visit where we got to hear sweet baby's heartbeat. It was a different experience taking Cameron with me to my appointments. Round 2 is very different, but not in a bad way. I think this pregnancy will fly by since we aren't just sitting around waiting for baby to get here... we have plenty of entertainment daily to keep us busy and occupied! 
Here's to another great few weeks before I go to the doctor again just before Thanksgiving!

Cameron: Ten Months.

Stats: No official stats this month. 
Size 3 diapers, 9 months clothes.

Firsts: First time to the Hsv Botanical Gardens for the scarecrow trail, first two top teeth broke through, first time telling everyone you're going to be a big brother, first time to Ag Round Up on homecoming weekend, first time to the zoo, first time to Tatum's birthday party, first time really legit crawling, first time to the Pumpkinfest in downtown Franklin! 

Milestones: Your biggest milestone this month was finally starting to actually crawl instead of army crawl. You definitely still prefer to cruise around being upright. You're getting more and more personality every day! It's so fun to see your new expressions and abilities. 

Food & Sleep: You now nurse 3 or 4 times a day and continue to eat 3 meals. Your favorite breakfast is oatmeal with apple sauce! For lunch a dinner you usually eat a veggie and fruit and something else. We like to try and give you meats but you are starting to be kind of picky. I guess we should have expected it, since we are your parents :) Overall you are doing great though! You typically do enjoy eating and basically never want to stop. I would say basically all fruits are your favorites! Trying to make you a healthy boy. You are on a great sleeping schedule. You wake up around 7 typically and take a nap at 9, unless we go workout then we push that nap back a bit. You nap again around 1 or 2 and then bedtime between 7-8. 

Our days: We are pretty consistent with last month, except now you sleep a little better. I nurse you after you wake up and then you eat some breakfast before we head out to work out on MWF. We workout and play a bit before heading home to take a nap. After you nap I nurse you and we eat lunch. We play for a while before you take another nap. When you wake up we play awhile before nursing and eating dinner. Dad usually gets home around then and we play with him before it's bath time and bedtime!  

Favorites: Mommy's favorite is your new smile with your new four teeth. Daddy's favorite is how you love to say dadadada!

Nicknames: Cam, CamMan, CammyCam, Little Man
