21 Weeks

We have an announcement to make! We have decided on a name for our little boy.

And he shall be called...

Orion Lawrence Lambes

We both really like it and hope you do too... but if you don't, no worries, it'll grow on you ;) It means "Dweller on the Mountain of the Laurel Trees" Lambes. Epic! Orion is a name that Nathan came across years ago and loved, and it grew on me until I couldn't see our son being named anything else. Lawrence is Nathan's middle name and his dad's first name. It feels pretty good to have a name picked out :)

And now our regularly scheduled update:

Orion is as long as a large banana! Obviously a banana is not as large as a cantaloupe, but we're going by length here, so bear with me. Starting this week Baby is measured head to toe instead of head to rump... he didn't really grow four inches in a week :)

How far along? 21 weeks even
Total weight gain/loss: Still +6 pounds total

Maternity clothes? Yep
Sleep: Fine
Best moment this week: Nathan feeling Orion kick for sure (several times), along with Robin, Allie, and Rachel!
Movement: Yep! He's getting very active.

Food cravings: None
Food aversions: Mexican food
Gender: BOY!

Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? Mostly in... there's one part that's been sticking out for a while :P
What I miss: Nothing
What I am looking forward to: The next ultrasound

Milestones: Deciding on a name, Nathan and others feeling him kick
