We're having a little baby BOY!! Hoooray!!! Now it's 3 girls vs 3 boys lol!

Our Dearest Limes,

We are SO HAPPY to hear you are our little baby boy!! Mom's already started looking for the cutest little boy outfits for you! Dad is trying to hold me back a bit so I don't spend 'millions of dollars!'

And Dad keeps saying he won the 'bet', but as I'll explain, the bet was totally biased.

More to come...

We *love* you Limey!! 16 weeks 6 days!

We just adore you, little Limey (or Zee Limes, as I sometimes call you).
Last weekend, I finally told Rae, Mary and Shannon - 'So, guess what..I'm having a baby!' and I showed off my lovely bump. The girls are so happy for me, but I know Rae is especially. I'm going to hang the picture she drew of the family in Limey's room. Limey's going to have such cool Aunties!! Rae, Kat, Amanda, Claudia, Dani, Mary, Richa, Kate, Charissa, Melinda, Shannon.

I've been feeling kinda blah, like a zombie, just cause my headaches can be bad. But I'm really glad, that for the last one, tylenol worked.

Instead of having cravings for anything in particular, yet, I've found that I've 90% of my sweet tooth. When I went out with the girls last weekend, everyone ordered cheesecake but me. Me! No cheesecake! How strange lol. Instead I have a chai latte that was really really good. I also really like cucumbers, oranges/clementines, and these days, toast with almond butter and honey...mmmm...honey.

I'm researching co-sleepers vs. cribs vs playards these days. And we were given a cradle by Aunt Diane! It's passed down from Francine's last little girl. I was looking for something that rocked! I was a bit sad at first, just for a minute..I was hoping to have picked out Limey's crib with my's such a big part of the nursery, right? But Mister said we could use the cradle out in the living room, and I immediately felt better.

I've been googling jungle-themed nurseries, as I've always said I wanted to have a nursery that was mainly about big cats! Animals everywhere - none of that truck and princess theme stuff..ick. Limey can choose what he/she likes when she's older. I never chose pink - when I chose my room colours in grade 7, I chose turquoise walls with a really beautiful turquoise border, with yes, pink flowers..but it was *so* perfect. I really loved that room. Plus, I covered my closet in pics of boys and movie posters (Titanic!). I see how much little girls love disney princesses - do we really need these 'women' as role models to our girls? Thin, beautiful girls who sing and always get the guy? I just find the princess obsession so weird. But, I guess our girls grow out of that phase too. For me, it was all about My Little Pony, and characters that had horses. I *loved* She-Ra (which I think explains my love for Buffy!) Lady Lovelocks, rainbow bright, they all had such beautiful horses..and I still want one one day. I wonder if Limes will share my love of horses, whales and all fuzzy creatures? :)

Have to add that I just feel beautiful these days...I've never felt so comfortable and happy with my body! I just love my belly, and my boobs and my changing shape. I'm actually getting compliments all the time that I look really good..that pregnancy glow is real! :) It's all my happiness about our Limey shining through. I'm so proud of Limey already. 

We talk to Limey every night before bed. Mister says 'we love you Limey. We want you to grow big and strong and healthy. We can't wait to meet you!' Mister even called Limey 'My Limey' the other sweet! We are both so so so excited about Limey getting here. 

We get to hear Limey's heartbeat again this Thursday (yay!!!) and then in a few weeks, a long ultrasound that will hopefully let us know if we're having a son or a daughter. Wow. 

16 Weeks
Watch what 16 Weeks Pregnantyou say... tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you're interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.
