23w1d - Pictures, video, and a name!

Alright...I have lots of goodies for you this week. First, here is a variety of belly pictures, taken at 22w6d:


Front view - K is anxiously awaiting my bellybutton popping so that he can make fun of me. I have always had a super deep belly button, so to see it right there even with the rest of my belly is quite a shock to me. It's even worse when I move in certain ways and it pokes out. I'm sure mybutton will eventually be an outie...it's just a matter of when.




And here is a full-body shot since I'm normally headless. I do have a head...it is becoming more and more useless as my brain withers away due to pregnancy, but that's beside the point. Here's me:

Baby has been kicking a ton lately. My parents and brother and sister were all able to see and feel her move this weekend, which was cool. At one point my brother was yelling about something and everytime he would yell baby would jump. My sister got to feel that and thought it was neat. At least she'll be somewhat used to his loud mouth by the time she's born, right?

I was able to get one good kick on video!! To see it, go here: http://s246.photobucket.com/albums/gg107/Bee415_2008/?action=view&current=4bb09455.pbr


And, last but not least, we have decided on a name for bean. She will be Kate Elizabeth. Kate is a name that we found we both loved the night before our big u/s (at which point I thought it was irrelevant since I was SURE she was a he). Elizabeth is both K's grandma's middle name and my grandma's middle name. So we've known her name for a while and a few times I've written Kate in my blogs and had to go back to change it since I hadn't quite shared that yet. Now I can type her name unfiltered since you've been formally introduced. :)

Great Bee!! I love the name Kate, so classic, but still fresh. I love that you are going with Kate as the name as opposed to naming her "Katie" and calling her Kate which is my ultimate peeve :) Way to go huns!
