The easy way to travel with a small baby

Andy and I have enjoyed traveling with a small baby, it is really easy to take care of right now! We took our second (17 week) baby bump picture at the Grand Canyon.  There was lots of snow there! It was quite a bit cooler than Portland.

They say that between 16 and 20 weeks I can start to feel the baby. Last night I think I felt the first real movement. Many blogs describe it as a ping, flutters, gas bubbles, but mine felt like a uterine massage. You know those massage machines that are two balls that move around and you put it between your back and a chair and you get a "massage"... it felt like a really light massage in there. I hope my baby will give me back massages someday.

Eating for two

The real meaning of eating for two came to me this morning as I was on my second round of breakfast.  I was in a hurry and didn't want to eat breakfast twice, but the first round made its way into the toilet bowl, and I knew I would be hungry in a few minutes if I left home without eating again.  So I am eating twice as much; its not as fun as I imagined.
