16 weeks and lots of lovin'

I had a terrific midwife appointment yesterday. The baby is measuring right on, I've only gained 2lbs and we heard a steady heartbeat of 150ish bpm. All is right with the world. I have The Sonogram scheduled for July 8th. I can't wait to catch a glimpse of this kid and hopefully learn girl/boy. I've been doing a bit of shopping lately (what can I say? I can't resist a good sale!) and though I've saved all of the receipts I'd like to know if the matching Easter dresses I found will be put to good use :-P

Audrey is as crazy as always. **knock wood** She's been sleeping through the night (finally!) on a fairly consistent basis and is making it past her 5:00 AM wake up time regularly as well. She's a much happier child for getting better sleep - it's nice to have a snuggly ball of kid in the morning than a overtired shrieking mess. I'm proud that she found her way herself and it wasn't something that we forced upon her by letting her cry fruitlessly in her crib by herself. Yes, it's taken some time (and some frustration, for sure!) but she's there. At least for now :-P

She's still nursing before bed at night. She's all about anything that will stall bedtime. We sing songs, kiss her "buh-bites" (bug bites) - both real and imaginary and rock in the glider. For her final act she flings her arms around my neck and lays a big, fat kiss on my mouth. It's delightfully adorable and she knows it. Girlfriend has my number - the way to Mama's patiences is through hugs and kisses.
