Week 16

This past week, Peanut was an avocado!
According to 
"the baby is 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces.  His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head.  His ears are close to their final position, too."
YEY, peanut is looking more and more human and less alien like.  
I have my "16 week" appointment tomorrow even though I'll be 17 weeks.  This one isn't anything major, just a check up to make sure things are going ok.  We opted out of all of the tests that could be run so I'm thinking this appointment will be pretty short.
I don't get another sono until 20 weeks.  They will be able to tell the sex by then as well as other developmental milestones.  I am pretty pumped about that one and yes, I'm still leaning towards boy.
Still not in maternity clothes.  I tried on a few pairs of pants out of my hand-me-down stash and they fell down as soon as I pulled them up so I guess I'm just going to have to use the bellaband and rubberband trick until maternity pants fit.  God knows that the top button on most of my pants won't come close to buttoning.

Shannon! Don't throw the peanut! :)
I laughed out loud at that one. Your pictures and updates are adorable and I'm so excited for you and Matt!
