With 16 weeks of baby Hodges growing under my belt, your now slightly beginning to grow up and my belly is just beginning to pouch. You are now the size of a mango! This week I’m going to start photo documenting the growth of the baby bump. Subtle right now, but it’ll be fun to see how fast you grow! I’ve been little tired but overall I’ve had it easy! We let people know that we were blessed with you on Thanksgiving and now I’m starting to blog and document this journey on Christmas! I noticed this morning a little more of a baby bump. What a great Christmas present. We’re so looking forward to meeting you and can’t help but think about next year when we’ll get to celebrate with you! So far, you’ve been easy on me. Thank you!

Cravings:
Tomatoes
any kind of COLD fruit, I’m very inclined to Clementines and OJ ;)
and so cliche…PICKLES!!!
french fries with mustard
The first couple of weeks I lived on fruit..pineapples, peaches, apples…I hope this trend continues! You’ll be one healthy baby :)

At my last check-up, I had only gained 2lbs since the beginning. I thought this was good! The Dr. said he’d like me to up my calories…so…this I will do. Anything for you!

I’m not sure if I feel you fluttering just yet. It’s subtle if so, but I did start to feel a little something!! Your dad and I bought a heart monitor so we could hear you anytime we want. Your heartbeat is usually around 145-150 beats/min. Perfect! Every night before bed, we listen to you and it makes us so happy. Tomorrow we’ll wake up and celebrate Christmas! Looking forward to the next when we will wake up with you :)
