How many weeks:  27 weeks

How am I feeling: Hot mostly.  Also, happy.

Doctor’s Appointment: Today, well, sort's 3-D u/s day!!  We see the MFM next Friday, the 13th.

Weight Gain:  9lbs - I am bummed about this, but I suppose it was bound to happen.  :)
Maternity Clothes:  I wear all maternity clothes these days.  Love it!

Baby Preparation: Nursery is all cleaned out!!  We have a few things to hang on the walls and then pictures, lots of pictures, before we can pile it up with shower gifts!! 

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 5 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Name:  Noah Reagan McCleskey.  It means Peaceful Little King.  Pretty sweet!

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)  Although Noah likes to wake me up with some kicks/punches around 3 or 4 in the a.m. - I think he just needs some mommy time.  I love it. :0)

Best moment this week:  Feeling him kicking away pretty much all the time.   Seeing him for about 40 minutes on the 3D thing today, it was absolutely breathtaking.  God is so amazing!!

Movement: A lot.  I love it.  I love being woken up by it early in the morning.  It's so sweet.

Food cravings: sweet fruits, mango, watermelon, strawberries

What I miss: Well, pretty soon I'll be missing my belly button ...  Much to Matt's joy I might add!! 

What I am looking forward to: I am looking forward to reaching 28 weeks (next Friday), and entering the 3rd trimester. 

Milestones:  Today!  I'm at 27 weeks.  Every day is another blessing and symbol of God's love for us.

Picture Time!!

Happy Late Mother's Day, Girl! I absolutely LOVE that photo in the middle. He almost looks like he is laughing or giggling about something. That last picture is also precious...if he is sucking on his arm, I hope this doesn't mean that he is going to suck his thumb too! It took my mom 6 years to break me of that habit! :-p

Looking forward to seeing more photos and to (hopefully) seeing you guys sometime this year ("hopefully" meaning me finding a break in school)!

Love you and still prayin' for ya!
