Week 21 and a fun halloween weekend!

Tripp and me at 20 weeks

We are officially past the mid-way mark. Week 21 is upon us!! Here is what our little precious Tripp is up this week:

Baby's now the size of a banana! Baby's 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.

You may soon feel like he's practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to his activity as you get to know him better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.

We can't believe that Tripp is already growing so large! In fact we have noticed how my belly has seemed to sprout a bit over the last few days. There's no mistaking the fact that I am preggers now! Thank goodness ;)

We had a very fun halloween weekend. Friday we kicked off the weekend by attending a birthday party for some of Carl's little cousins. All of the kiddos were dressed in their costume and we all had a great time! Carl even dressed up for work on Friday (only because he had a chance to win some money...and he won first prize last year). He dressed up as Paul Blart: Mall cop. It was pretty funny, I would love to post some pics but he would not let me take any! We continued our halloween celebrations on Saturday. I went out to my sister's to celebrate with my nephews and my fam and some good friends! Poor Carl was stuck at home working on the septic system :( I have posted some pics...enjoy!

the cutest astronaut and skeleton ever!

Me and my 3 boys (baby tripp too)

Sundays are always my favorite day of the week. Carl and I started our day off at church then we went and had lunch at Katz's...which Tripp and I enjoyed very much! Afterwards Carl and I did some baby mattress shopping. Mom and I went shopping after we got home while Carl was mowing. We of course bought a few things for Tripp and a few things for me to wear to cover that growing bump! YaYa ia already spoiling her new grandson...she's had plenty of practice with her other two precious grandsons! We topped off the night with dinner at my mom's house and now it is time to relax with each other :) As always we hope everyone has a safe and blessed week!!

We will update again soon! Thanks for reading this week :)
