Week 26

99 days to go! We've come a long way, and are now in the countdown, with about three months to go! This week also marks our transition to the last trimester! Woohoo!!!

This last weekend Grandma, Poppa, Uncle Blake & Suzie (doggy auntie) came to visit for Thanksgiving. We had a great time being all cozy in our little house, tons of great food (both homemade and yummy restaurants), and of course the grandparents brought presents!!! (Thanks again Ma & Pop!) We also got to take a spontaneous trip to San Francisco! It had been about three decades since either Grandma or Poppa had been to SF, and we had a blast seeing some of the beauty of the city, on a clear, clean, crisp day! Here are some photos of our morning.

Week 24

This week is a huge mile marker in the pregnancy! At 24 weeks the baby is considered viable outside the womb (with lots of help of course). If baby came this week he/she would have a 50/50 chance of survival and which gets better every single week. But never to fear! With how well the pregnancy has been going I'm not worried about this sweetpea coming any time soon:-)

This morning I felt something new - movement on the left side and right side of my belly at the same time! Little BB was stretching out and is getting pretty long! BB dances, swims, does twists and turns all the time now! Its so much fun :-) This little one can't wait to show the Brinker Uncles, Grandma & Poppa all the tricks he/she can do this coming weekend when they come to visit!

Here are this weeks belly pixs! Long overdue I know!

Week 23

Baby shower!!! Last Saturday was our first shower thanks to my wonderful mama, amazing sister Hannah, & awesome friends Jenna & Becca! It was soooooo great to see old friends & all of the beautiful women in my family! How humbling it was to look around the room and see the realm of positive influence my life has had from the very beginning. What a legacy to give to my little one. We are so incredibly blessed!

Hannah's fun decorations!

Besides the babyshower the best part was getting to spend almost a whole week in Beaverton just hanging out with my awesome family (which includes my closest friends who are family too!). Between staying up until 1am jammin' to Dave's guitar, dancing at Saturday Market, stuffing our face with grapes, and watching Father Jay get wound up by the dogs, we were spoiled by my mama's amazing cooking! This crazy family is so excited for little BB to make an appearance.

Week 22

Its been WAY too long since my last post! I blame it on Dave (a common occurence these days) - the camera is at work and he keeps forgetting to bring it home! Belly pixs will come soon I hope! But in the mean time, here are the promised videos. They wouldn't upload directly to the blog so I posted the youtube links instead.

This one is of the 20 week ultrasound. So freakin' cool! You can actually see BB wiggling around in there!

This video was taken later that evening when Dave played at an open mic night. This is our baby's song!
