#2 is 13 weeks

How far along?: 13 weeks
Total weight gain: I've lost 5 pounds but I will attribute that to the nasty stomach flu that we passed around to each other last week
Sleep: Being 13 weeks pregnant while having a 7 month old is exhausting. I thought I was sleep deprived last time around. Ha!
Best moment of this week: Heard the heart beat and got to see the one again. It actually looked somewhat like a baby this time! :)
Gender: We find out in 1 month to the day!!!
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out?: In
What I miss: Tanning. I'm so pasty. I will be doing airbrush tanning this time around. I just have to find a place!
What I am looking forward to: Knowing the gender. I don’t know how much longer I can hold out without getting my hope too high for a girl.
Weekly wisdom: Sleep when you can. I have been taking advantage of being able to be completely alone on my lunch break. I’ve been napping in my car. Shhh. Don’t tell!
Milestones: I'm in the 2nd tri!!!

What baby Campbell is up to:
Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords, and is reaching normal proportions, with a head only one third the size of the body.

7 Months

7 Months old. 2 weeks until your 1st Thanksgiving. 2 months until your 1st Christmas. There are only 5 months until your 1st Birthday, 6 months until you become a big brother. What is going on? 7 months have never gone by so fast. You're a busy busy boy and you need to slow down for Momma!

What you've been up to this month:

•You eat 2 stage to meals a day and one meal of table food. You have had all of the fruits and veggies that Gerber makes but peas are still not your thing. You love pancakes and pears and much to my surprise you actually like green beans. You had your 1st taste of cinnamon roll the other day and you went nuts!!!
•You can officially crawl now but you’re still faster with your version of the army crawl.
•You are starting to pull up on things. It’s time to lower your crib mattress!
•You love to play peek-a-boo. It’s definitely your favorite game
•You have the best personality of any kid I have ever met. You are so happy and silly and well to be quite honest, dramatic. Your laugh would melt anyone’s heart.
•You’re still in size 3 diapers and in between your 3-6 and 6-9 month clothes. You may be a little guy but you have huge feet!
•Still no sign of teeth but I’m sure you’ll have some pearly whites to show off soon!

We have a crawler!

For what seems like months now, Brock has been "army crawling". He pulls himself across the floor with his arms and pushes off with his feet every once in a while. You should see his back... He's ripped! ;)A couple of weeks ago he started doing a couple of steps on his hands and knees before giving up and going back to the army crawl. On Sunday he finally did it. He crawled far enough that we are willing to count it! He got up on his hands and knees, rocked back and forth a couple of times and he was off! All the way across the living room! Aaron and I are so excited and probably a little crazy for being so happy for having a mobile baby!

Now I just need to catch it on camera!

I never realized how many Halloween activities there are until I became a Mom. Between the pumpkin patch, the fall festival, parties at daycare and trick or treating we are all Halloweened out and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! The time is going by too fast!!!
