half way!

I cant believe how fast time seems to be going by!!

At 21 weeks :

still craving salads (cafe rio chicken specifically, which I have had 2x this week!! yumm!)
Pink lemonade is my 2nd drink of choice next to Water of course!
Gained 9 lbs
Definitely feeling some stronger kicks! I started to feel him and know what I was feeling around 18 weeks but it was very subtle. Now I feel quite a few strong movements after I eat good food and when I lay down for bed! Colby has yet to feel them, but I have a feeling it wont be long before Im being kicked constantly!
Bought my first (and second) pair of maternity pants! They are so comfy I may never wear real pants again!!
Had two strangers actually ask me how about my pregnancy! I guess I am noticeably pregnant now!

This week I am missing Colby! He is in Mexico with my dad and a whole bunch of other people doing a Baja run! Basically driving dune buggies and motorcycles down the mexican coast! I cant talk to him until he gets back on saturday, although I do have confirmation that he is alive :) and is having a blast, thanks to wifi!!

I also went to do a 3/d ultrasound with my mom, grandma, brother and sister this past weekend! It was fun to get to see some of baby boys features and share that moment with my family!

Here is my 21 week pic and some pic from the 3d ultrasound!! Who do you think he is looking like??

Its a boy!

After what seemed like a forever wait we finally had our first ultrasound/anatomy scan yesterday!
Baby was being active and playing with his feet! Our ultrasound tech was very nice and walked us through everything she was doing and why. I had read a whole bunch of horror stories about techs that wouldnt talk to you but that wasnt the case for us!

Baby was measuring 19w4 days (I was 18w6 days) but they dont change the due dates unless it is an 11 day difference.
Baby's estimated weight was 10 oz and was 8 inches long and is in the 86th percentile.
Heartrate was 162 beats per minute
and baby is a BOY!!

We are so excited for our little boy! We were a little bit surprised, we had been thinking it was going to be a girl, but the Howard tradition held strong!

Here are a few of my favorite pics from the ultrasound!

And here is the video of him trying to grab his feet!!
