Half Time!!

I am officially half way through my pregnancy. I really popped out in the last week and a half. The baby has really been moving a lot more and now Jason can feel him and see him move. Last night we laid in bed and watched in amazement for about five minutes while my stomach moved and jumped around. He has moved under my belly button too which is cool because it means he is really growing on track. Jason gets very excited about the baby moving and that is just so much fun for me. The dark line that most women get in the middle of the stomach called the linea nigra is really starting to show now. We still haven't come up with a name yet which I know is driving some of you crazy. It's driving us a little coo coo too! Many people have asked when I plan on taking out my belly ring and the answer is "When I get my pregnancy belly ring." That is right, they make them and I am hoping to get one for my birthday. (hint, hint...Jason) They are made of flexible material and are longer for the growing belly. If it gets too uncomfortable then I will take it out and just put it in every once in a while to keep the hole open. Going to get ready for bed now and enjoy the kicks and punches. can click on my pictures to see them in full size.

Hello from Carolina,
The "new one" is developing very well.
Baby Ames will be here before you know it. You don't need to decide on a name until the Dr. fills out the birth certificate. Ha!
Hopefully you will be fully coherent and alert when that time comes so Jason will not be required to make the call alone in the joy and craziness of the birth. We could easiy have a baby boy with the name.........Buckshot Mallard "Lil Hunt'in Buddy" Ames. Take care.
Love ya,

That's really neat how you can see the baby move and kick. You look great and really happy. I'm bummed that I'm way up here in Boston and I can't experience all the fun stuff with you. Can't wait to see this pregnancy belly button ring you keep talking about.

Don't worry about the name to much. Sometimes you have to see the person you are naming before it seems right. Mom had 2 names picked out for Danielle and she couldn't decide. When she was born we looked at her and said she is definately a Danielle. Can't wait to see that pregnancy belly ring.
