So we have reached 24 weeks as of today. I can't believe that is just a few months we will be welcoming a new member to our family:) So exciting! We have finally got started on Emma's nursery. Her room will look very much like Jillian's room did when she came along as we are using all of the same bedding and furniture. We recently moved Jillian into a "big girl" bed to help make the transition of a new baby and givng Emma her crib a little easier....easier said than done:) Emma continues to be a VERY active baby, moving pretty much all day and night. We had a very exciting moment last week, for the first time Mark got to feel Emma kick. It was a very special moment for the both of us, as he only got to feel Jillian kick once which was right before she was born. He had the biggest grin on his face...that was a "proud papa" moment for sure. I have to say, it is so wonderful to be able to have him around during this pregnancy and know that he will not have to miss anything. We are definetly blessed.
Jillian has become more verbal about "baby" and "ma" (that's Emma). She puts the phone to my belly and likes to read to my belly, but she still has her moments where "she does not want to talk about it". We are experiencing a bit of overload on the whole "terrible two's" thing...it's really killer sometimes, but we are getting through it. She has discovered a new love in Elmo and books...wow she is in LOVE with both. She wants us to read to her constantly, which is wonderful:)
