Our Little Girl.

So, now that I'm 22 weeks... I should probably do an update of some sorts on this sweet little girl growing inside of me.
First off, oh how I love her so!
I feel like I already know her so well.
At both ultrasounds so far, she has cooperated perfectly and let us see everything we needed to.
She's also incredibly wiggly.
At first I couldn't tell if I was feeling movements or uhm... gas... but I'm so beyond sure that it's her now.
She's an early bird. Just like daddy.
In fact, when I'm struggling to take Hunter to his early lifts she kicks away and flips around until I start laughing and get out of bed to take him.
She loves when I drink lemonade, and so do I so I can tell we're gonna be best friends already. 
She's not a huge fan of me sleeping on my side, that's okay cause it doesn't feel so good on my shoulder anyways.
She's been so kind and hasn't made me throw up still.
My doctor is very pleased with her progress thus far.
Everything is growing exactly how it should and that makes for a little bit of a calmer mama.
Although, he is a bit concerned that her daddy was 11.5 lbs at birth. He'll be watching me carefully. 
I'm still not completely showing. Whenever I tell people I'm pregnant they seem shocked...
But trust me, I feel pregnant! My body is definitely changing and she pokes out a tiny bit more each week.
Her little profile in her pictures makes my heart melt.
Daddy loves his little girl and loves to sit in her rocking chair already.
Goodness we love her.
I cannot believe she'll be here in 18 weeks or less!

Here's a little bit more of an organized update on little lady:

How Far Along? 22weeks 
Weight Gain: Around 15 pounds already! But my doctor said that's just on track. I feel like a whale
 Maternity Clothes? Maternity pants for sure! They are heavenly! Though the bump hasn't completely arrived my hips have definitely widened making the button a little harder to snap ;)
 Sleep? All. The. Time. I require like 10 hours of sleep every night if I ever wanna get anything done.
 Best moment this week? Just movement. That always puts a smile on my face :)
 Weird pregnancy moment? Dreaming about this little girl being a baby giraffe that Hunter and I totally loved... what? Apparently that's actually quite normal. So weird.
 Movement: YES! Such an active little thing. I love it!
 Food Cravings: Salad, fruit, and french fries mainly but I've worked up quite an appetite since the first trimester.
 Anything making you queasy? Still even the thought of raw chicken kills me. I've definitely gotten better since the first trimester but I'll never look at it the same!
 Gender: 100% girl! Bring on the tutu's hair bows and pink!
 What I'm looking forward to: Getting her nursery underway!

And that's all for now!
My blogging game is lacking but I'll try harder I promise! 

All my love, 
Aleigh Joy

Ps. How sweet is this? :)
