One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Bigger than little peanut was -- already!

I went to my perinatologist on Monday for another growth ultrasound. They are tracking the little guy's progress to make sure he keeps growing and my placenta is working properly until I deliver.

Well -- everything seems to be working great! They estimated his weight to be 5 lbs 1 oz already. Hard to believe he is already bigger than Evelyn was when she was born (4 lbs 13 oz). If this growth/weight gain continues, he should be around an 8 lb baby.

I guess the shots/medication that I am taking is working. I hate giving the injections -- but it if means a big, healthy baby, then that is fine with me :) I have another growth ultrasound in a few weeks, and then we will begin the non-stress tests also -- to watch & make sure the little guy stays happy until April 9th.

Here are a couple of pictures taken yesterday during the ultrasound:
Travis is already worried that this boy will have "second child syndrome". He says that there are twice as many baby pictures of his older brother Chuck than there are of him. I don't think he really cares -- but he likes to say it to rile his mom up a little bit -- and it works :)

He's so cute! It's amazing to me how much they actually look like these 3-D and 4-D u/s pics when they come out! What good news on the growing too!

What a great u/s pic. I am still hoping I can have 1 more u/s prior to delivery, but I doubt it.

Glad to hear the little guy is growing. It is hard to believe you might have an 8 lb baby. I bet mine will be just as big :)
