7 Weeks

7 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a blueberry. 
This week the baby's hands and feet are emerging from the developing arms and legs- although they look more like paddles. The baby still has something of a small tail which will disappear in the next few weeks. Our little blueberry now measures half an inch long. The eyelid folds partially cover the eyes, which have some color to them. The hemispheres of the brain are developing and a loop in the baby's growing intestines are bulging into the umbilical cord.
How far along?
 7 Weeks
Total weight gain? Nada yet
Maternity clothes? Nope, but it's also summer vacation and I pretty much live in comfy clothes for 2 months and avoid doing my hair/makeup at all costs.
Stretch marks? Nope and I just bought some of the same cocoa butter as last time.  I'm hoping since it worked with Cole that it will work for this one!  
Sleep? Waking anywhere between 7-8 am with Cole and sleeping like a rock.  Also napping a bit here and there when Cole takes his short afternoon nap.
Best moment this week? Finishing the basement and saying our goodbyes to our beloved home.  Now we start our new adventure at the rental house in Emporia.
Miss anything? Our house/family/friends in Gardner already :(
Movement? Nope
Food cravings? Just drinking lots of cold, cold water
Anything making you queasy/sick? Everything. 24 hours a day.  Not fun.
Gender? Not yet
Labor Signs? Nope
Symptoms? The all day morning sickness is horrible.  Chasing and playing Cole-Man all day probably isn't helping much.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? HAPPY!!! So excited for this life change!
Looking forward to? Trying to get ourselves somewhat settled/unpacked soon.
Daddy moment: Thank heavens that Trent helps out with dinner.  Feeding Cole is such a chore and all I want to do is throw up the whole time.
Big brother Cole moment: Cole is so resilient and flexible to these changes in his life.  The move didn't faze him one bit.  We set up his room pretty similar to what it was and he was instantly a happy camper!
