17 Weeks! (Pictures coming tonight I promise!)

Jen and 17 Weeks

Jen and 17 Weeks

Well here we are at 17 weeks! It is going by kinda fast. I say that and then watch it go by super slow. Anyways, this time next week we will be finding out whether Baby Boo is a Jackson or a Peyton! I can’t begin to explain the excitement that we have. I took the day off of work because we are also going to go register afterwards and I am also going to take Jen out for a nice lunch wherever she wants!.

Here’s what is happening in Boo’s life:

Your baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she’s around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.

It would awesome to see the baby move at our appointment next week since s/he can move his/her joints. Hopefully the baby will be in a position where we can tell the sex. Either way, we are both ecstatic!

In other news, we had a great weekend last weekend. We got to hang out at my Gina and Eddie’s house (my sister and her husband). We watched some football, ate some cheese dip, and had some chocolate cake which all of the food was very tasty! They also gave us some baby things which was so awesome and appreciated very very much. Thanks you guys!

Also, we have an addition to the family! We are the proud owners of a 2005 Honda Pilot! We love the car. It is very roomy, comfortable and we got a great deal. We ended up going with our original choice from Brannon Honda becuase our other deal fell through. There will be pictures of the car up soon. We are really happy and blessed to have been able to get the car.

This weekend we have a semi-busy weekend. We have the Moody homecoming game this Friday. I am not sure who they are playing but we have been asked to go to the game by several youth at our church so we are going to go support them. On a side note though, I believe our town of Odenville did defeat Moody earlier this season =). Then on Saturday, I am participating in the Gospel Fest in Fairfield, AL. I will be playing two songs. I am pretty excited. It got rained out earlier this year.

Sorry for the short blog this time. I am kinda having blogging-bloc. Anyways, pictures will be up tonight!
