We were at playgroup on Friday and started talking about the 2 year old well-check appointments and the different milestones that 2 year olds are suppose to have met that the doctors ask about. One was that they are suppose to be able to say 20 words or more. It made me think, "Does Bella say 20 words?" I honestly didn't think so and started to worry. She is completely able to communicate anything she wants/needs and is extremely receptive to communication (i.e., we can tell her to do something and she knows what to do-whether she actually DOES it or not depends on the stubborn factor of the day). SO I decided to make a list and we keep thinking of words randomly thru the day so its definitely not complete but its a LOT more than I ever thought and definitely over 20:
*In no specific order, I have preggo brain so I wrote them down as they came to me. These are only words that other people could actually discern-they aren't perfectly clear but easy to understand. Example: "Bella" usually comes out as "Bewwa" as it does for most kids her age because the L sound just ain't happening yet:)
baby (she is obsessed with baby animals, and also loves to take Squirt's ultrasound pic and carry it around the house saying, "Ohhh baby" and kissing it LOL)
away (her form of saying something needs to be thrown away-lil miss tidy!!!)
mine (definitely one of the most used)
no (another most used)
bank (LOOOOVES to put change in her piggy bank)
stinky (she is obsessed with smelling her horribly stinky feet)
choo choo (refers to trains AND trucks as choo choos)
baaa (what does a sheep say? and she usually SCREAMS "BAAAAA")
bee (every bug is a bee)
butterfly (except a butterfly!)
fry (french fry)

The tech said everything looked great-no obvious markers for Downs or any Trisomies and is measuring perfectly on target:)

She doesn't act like she doesn't feel good-still has tons of energy and has actually been eating and sleeping again, but she has constant congestion which is now causing a cough. None of its contagious-no fever, no green/yellow gunk, just fun ol allergies. Poor baby, it was one thing I didn't want her to inherit-that and my asthma. But I guess when you have parents who both have allergies and asthma, you are cursed LOL

I have an ultrasound on the 16th but I doubt we'll be able to tell the gender already even tho I've had dreams that we could. The gender ultrasound should be around the first week of August so we'll be able to get more serious about names then considering we haven't come up with any girl names yet LOL
WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH YOU
You may be suffering with more frequent headaches as a result of the change in your hormone levels. You can help prevent headaches before they start by eating regularly, drinking plenty of fluids, getting adequate sleep and keeping stress levels low. Ask your care provider if you can treat headaches with Tylenol (acetaminophen), a pain medication that is considered safe for pregnant women. If you experience frequent headaches, if the headache is the by-product of a fever, or if it causes visual disturbances or puffiness in the hands and face, call your practitioner immediately.
WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH YOUR BABY
Your baby-to-be is about 50 millimeters crown to rump and weighs about eight grams (about a quarter of an ounce). The irises are now forming. The liver, intestines, brain and lungs are beginning to function on their own. The primitive "tail" is now gone. The intestines are beginning to migrate into the abdominal cavity and the external genitalia are present but difficult to distinguish. Now that most of the major organ work is done, your baby adds such details as hair, fingernails and toenails. While your baby's head is nearly as large as the rest of her body, head growth begins to slow during this period.
11 weeks-now people might wonder "pregnant or tumor?" instead of "wow she is gaining weight or maybe she is pregnant" :)
9 weeks-yep I skipped a week
So at 9 weeks I had the sexy Urkel look and at 11 weeks I am flashing the lovely post-CSection flap... never know what you're gonna get!!
Riding the dinosaur
I love you!!!!!!
