17 Weeks - Kellan

Introducing our little boy, Kellan Joshua Morgan!  

How far along: 17 weeks 6 days (in the picture)

Total Weight Gain/Loss
: 8/9 pounds

Maternity clothes: None yet, just using a belly belt every now and then.  

Stretch marks: None

Sleep: Still wonderful

Best moment last week: Making more time to spend in quiet with the Lord.  Josh and I both started putting aside more time to pray and in doing so God answered one of our biggest worries that we've had all year regarding Callie's childcare situation.    

Movement: Still just a few jabs and kicks here and there but not as much as with Callie.

Food cravings: Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!

Gender: BOY!!!  

Labor signs: Just a few contractions here and there, nothing too serious. 

Belly button - in or out? In, but it is getting closer and closer to being flat

What I miss: Feeling healthy.. This week included food poisoning and a sudden diagnosis of avian flu... yes, bird flu.  I have NO clue how I caught it but I'm pretty sure it's from the mixing pot of germs in my kindergarten classroom.  This week I would've done anything for a big ol' swig of Nyquil!!

What I am looking forward to: A week off to spend recovering and decorating for Christmas.  Holidays are my absolute favorite and you can be sure that we will be working in Kellan's room a TON in the next few months. 

Milestones: Finding out the gender and getting closer to the halfway mark.

First, congrats on your new baby boy! I LOVE the white board updates you did through your pregnancy, and I'd love to do the same for my own updates... but I was hoping you had some tips. Yours look amazing, and I am struggling to make mine look good!

Nicole, thank you so much for your sweet comment! I actually used an app on my phone called Rhonna Designs to get ideas for lettering and banners, etc... then I'd make a mock up in the app and use dry erase markers to sketch it onto the board. I hope this helps you out! Good luck and congratulations :)
