Halloween Weekend

Happy Halloween!
We decided to stay in tonight and just let Blake dress up and help hand out candy at our house. Probably next year we'll work on the trick-or-treating. She was a very cute Minnie Mouse, but she didn't love the ears.
Other than that... We celebrated my birthday (tomorrow) with lunch with my parents today at Wall Street. It was yummy! And after we ate, my mom brought in this little pumpkin cake she made. Isn't it cute?
This picture was taken yesterday after we ate breakfast and were running errands. Blake pretty much has to take some "baby" or stuffed animal with her anywhere we go, and this time it was the baby ladybug. It was a chilly morning and she looked so cute all snuggled up.

24 Weeks

We had our 24 week appointment today. It was just a normal check-up with a sonogram to check what we couldn't get last time. Everything checked out great and we got to see his face this time! He is 1 pound 11 ounces and is in the 89 percentile. He jumped from 41% to 89% in 4 weeks! The sonogram tech said he had a major growth spurt. His head measurements are exactly matching his gestational age, but his arm, leg and belly measurements are measuring a week older, or bigger. They said it is his length that makes him in such a high percentile.
It's hard to believe there are only a few months left til we meet Easton Ray Trevino!

Pumpkin Patch

The other day after school we went to visit the pumpkin patch. Blake loved touching the pumpkins, carrying them around, and looking at the other kids there.
"Up!" Bye Pumpkins!

Blake-isms

As of yesterday, Blake is 19 months old. She is talking more and more and is more energetic than ever! Sometimes it's hard for this momma to keep up, especially when I don't always feel great... (this pregnancy has been harder than Blake's. More nausea and lots of heartburn! But it's so worth it. I can't wait to see the little guy.)
  • Every morning when Blake wakes up, she asks for juice. Nine times out of ten, she picks orange over apple for the morning. Anytime Blake drinks juice, or water or milk or anything really, she savors it. She'll take a drink and then hold it in her mouth, swirling it around before swallowing it, and saying "mmmm."
  • Whenever Blake sees a dog she starts wagging her finger and saying "no no no no." She's met a few hyper dogs, Marley included, that like to jump up towards her, so she tells all dogs "no no."
  • When singing "The Wheels on the Bus" Blake always puts her finger on her nose and says "shh shhh," for the part about the parents on the bus shhhing the babies.
  • Blake smiles real big and says "bee!" for when you tell her to say please.
  • She loves feeding baby dolls or stuffed animals, or giving them a drink and making the slurp noise. Blake also likes to cover up the dolls with blankets and tell them to "ni-ni" (night-night) or carry them around in the blanket patting them on the back telling them to "shhhh-shhhh."
  • If Blake bumps her head or falls down or does anything to get a boo-boo, she starts making kiss noises and points to where she wants you to kiss to make it better.
  • Blake will tap repeatedly with her finger on a spot to tell you exactly where she wants you to be while saying your name
  • (I'll add as I think of more...)

It's a...

BOY!!! Today we went to the best appointment so far... sonogram day where we got to find out the sex of our baby. There is no doubt, it's 100% a boy. I was a little worried the baby wouldn't cooperate and be in the right position for us to tell, but he gave us about 5 great shots that are definitely showing his boy parts. Ha! Instead, the little guy would not show us his face! He was cuddled up and tucked head-down and wouldn't come up to say hi. So we get to go back in 4 weeks for another sonogram! They were able to get most measurements: 11 ounces, 41 percentile, and measuring at 20 weeks, 1 day (1 day ahead of actual age), so all is good. But they needed to check lips and nose, so another sonogram is needed.

My blood pressure today was 120/90, which I think was due to my excitement. I could hardly sit still as I waited for 3:00 to get here!!

I will post sonogram pictures later.
