Holy moly we are half way there!! 

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. she's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she's measured from head to toe.)

Halfway, I cant believe it. only five more months till we meet our princess. things are going by really fast now. I'm sure towards the end it will slow down again. All i can think about is holding our little girl in my arms. 

well since today is the half way mark and we are sick of referring to jelly bean as baby instead of her name. we have finally picked out a name. We werent sure about sharing it, a lot of friends told us to keep it a secret but we dont want to. I want to call her by her name.  So  I hope you like it. if not at least it's not yours. 

baby girls name is JOVI!!! 
Jovi _____ Showalter

for short we will call her Jo.

I think it's perfect jesse came up with it and it's stuck n my head right away. we had a few other favorites but we just couldnt stop calling her Jovi.  it's like she picked it. 

Other things going on this week...well, i cant fit my clothes anymore. i feel like totally unprepared. jesse got sick of me complaining so he took me out shopping today. we wanted to look at maternity clothes so we went to the mall and out of all the stores only two had maternity sections. One of them only had two racks and i wouldn't put my dogs in their clothes and the other one wasnt much better. So we went to target. they had a slightly bigger selection and better styles. I got some maternity jeans, a dress, a bathing  suit, and some shirts. I cant believe how bad your options are when your pregnant. im not even that big yet. its makes me want to start designing clothes. 

sorry rosie sneaks into every photo.. she love the attention 

while we were at target we added some stuff to our registry. and we picked up this little guy 

We originally registered for it but we couldn't take the chance of not getting in and then target selling out of them. I cant wait to wrap Jovi up in there and get some adorable pictures. 

here are some other photos from the days outtings. 

haha that's me trying out a breast pump!
