Wow, we have now entered the third trimester! I can't believe we are here already. Tripp is growing more each week and is quite a little wiggle worm. Carl and I love to feel him moving around. We can't wait to meet him! Here is what Tripp is up to this week:
In the last third of pregnancy, he'll double and triple his weight. The average fetus size at this point is 13.6 in.-14.8in and weighs about 1.5-2.2 lbs. Your dexterous baby can touch and hold his feet and make a fist. Your partner may be able to hear his heartbeat by pressing his ear against your belly. Your baby has a regular sleep schedule now and active and inactive periods. You may or may not be able to discern what those periods are. His nostrils, which have been plugged, open up.
To say we had a great holiday week/weekend would be an understatement! I spent most of last week baking and preparing for thursday which I always enjoy! On Thanksgiving we celebrated twice. First we went over to Carl's aunt's house and had a mini-feast with his family. We had a good time and his aunt did a great job! Afterwards we headed over to my mom's house where we feasted once again! All of the food was delicious but Tripp especially enjoyed mom/yaya's dressing and aunt kelly's sweet potatoes! We ate a couple rounds of food throughout the afternoon and then we rounded out the night with some fun games! We had such a great time getting together with family and friends. After a full day of fun we headed straight to bed to prepare for getting up early to partake in our annual black friday shopping! Mom, Kelly, tiffany and I fought the cold weather and stood in line to get some great deals and to watch all the crazy shoppers go bananas...which is the best part! I have posted a picture of our loveliness at 3am!

Thanks for reading and be sure to check in again soon! How blessed we are! We had a great holiday week and we hope everyone had a blessed thanksgiving and holiday weekend! Have a great week!
Traci, Carl and Tripp
