Playing Outside....

We love to sing outside!
We love to make silly faces outside! (LOL) ( I have her daddy to thank for this!)
 Sweet smiles outside!
 Looking at "bootiful" flowers outside!

Ok! I am super late on this post, but this past week has been so busy that every evening I have forgotten to take a picture since I turned 21 weeks on Thursday.

Movement: Yes! He has some calm moments and then some moments that he is a very busy bouncy boy! :-)
Sleep: Great! I have been sleeping deep & have been told that I now snore! LOL
What I miss: Being able to sleep on my stomach...

Cravings: Well, I craved cake the beginning of the week & I had cake overload this week, so I'm not into sweets this week..LOL
