sweet potato pie.

i won’t lie, when my mom said it’d be cute to draw a little face on a veggie, i was not 100% convinced… but then when i saw how happy the little face was that she drew, i thought about how happy our little sweet potato must be all cozy in there & that made me very happy, so what the hey! our little is now the size of a SWEET potato! yummm. i’m officially 18 weeks & can’t believe i am only TWO weeks away from being halfway through this pregnancy! can this be real? bumping out, was just as everyone said, OVERNIGHT, and at 18 weeks, i am finally starting to feel or atleast look like i’m pregnant. i am really trying to enjoy all sides of pregnancy because i am SO thankful that i have been blessed with it, and also because though we hope to have a large family, you really don’t know what God has in store for you, and so i think it is really important to be grateful and joyful wherever you are.
i have seen these floatin’ around the blogging community & haven’t participated yet, so i decided today was the day! a few updates…
How far along? 18 weeks TODAY!

Sleep: still sleeping great - minus a few trips to the bathroom and the occasional wacky dream
Best moment this week: feeling what i am almost positive are the first signs of movement in my tummy!
