Here is a picture (of a picture) of our baby in the sonogram on Friday! It is pretty blurry, but you can see the tiny body and even a little smile, so sweet! We were not able to find out the gender since baby had to be sitting indian style and breech position for nearly an hour during the sonogram, but we will be going back next week for another try! :) It was really exciting to see our baby for the 2nd time squirming around in there! Cade was able to go with us and he would just watch the screen and wave and say "hi" over and over! :) So, we are now 16 weeks and a few days! I read this week that our baby is going to take a huge growth spurt and even double his /her weight! Here are a few other things happening this week: baby will get toenails, heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood each day, and he/she is the size of an avocado! We are SO excited to find out the gender, hopefully next week and get started on the nursery! :) Have a great weekend!

My mom and dad gave Baby Grimes these outfits for Christmas! Since they didn't know what the baby was they bought for both! So cute! Tomorrow is the BIG day! Jon, Cade, and I will go to the sono appointment in the morning and just like last time Jon will leave the dr's office grinning ear to ear knowing he will be a dad to another amazing son, or tickled pink knowing he will have a mini me running around and wrapped around his little finger! He has already said he will be proud to announce either to me later on in the day! Can you believe I am letting him to this again...if he didn't get the most JOY out of surprising me I wouldn't ever do it, but my man knows how much I love the thrill of surprises and as he says, "it's boring to find out any other way." Ok ok, only for you Jon! Tomorrow night my friend Jen will be getting married so we will wait and share the news on Saturday! Our families will be coming over for a Big Gender Brunch and then our friends will hear the great news! SO, what will it be, leave your prediction and you'll be surprised to see on Saturday! :)

Cade stole a few fries....look at that face!
In about 15 minutes our sweet friends Kenny and Reba will be headed to the hospital to be induced tonight! Kennedy Trapp should join the world sometime during the night or tomorrow! Can't wait to meet her! Praying for a healthy baby, easy delivery, and happy family! :)

Tonight I was able to go over to the Mangrem's (our pastor's family) house and take dinner. Here is an update from Mark last week:
UPDATE ON JULIE: Julie has had a good week. Thank you for praying for her and our family. She continues to receive fluids a couple of times a week to help with the dehydration. We will meet with her doctor next week to see if there has been any improvement in her liver functions. Until those levels come down, she is not able to receive treatment.
Julie and I desire to honor Him and be about His kingdom first and trust Him with the details. Knowing He's in control helps me not worry too much. I'm still working on trying to walk out Sunday's talk. (Maybe I need to listen to the podcast.) We love being a part of this church. Thanks for everything.
Have a great week. See you Sunday.
Staying On Track,
Julie is the sweetest person ever! She is sick and note feeling well and all she wanted to do was talk about Cade or how far along we are now, or anything but her! She is so brave and has fought so hard! She has the most incredible faith I have EVER seen and she is such an encouragement! I am going to update more on her each week! Please continue to pray for her and their family!
After I got back from the Mangrem's house; Jon, Cade, Gigi, and Papaw met me at our favorite Monday night Pizza hangout! We really have become faithful Monday night customers! :)
And here is our little 14th month old son! What a GIFT!
Jon just got home from getting me gas (what a great husband) and came home with my favorite sour straws (it's a weird craving I get these days). I am off to watch the bachelor and have a great sugary snack! I should be feelin the baby movin' tonight! :)

Here are a few random pics, all taken with my phone this week so they are a little blurry!
I will leave you with proof of mr taking baby steps! It's just a few, but we are working on it everyday! I wish I could describe how much I love my little guy! The other day my dad asked how Cade's ear was feeling and I said he was good and that I sure loved him, my dad said I know you do because that's how much I love you! Thought it was really sweet! SO thankful I am his mommy!
Have a great week!

Thursday afternoon I met Jon's Aunt Becky and cousin Meagan in Dallas at the Ivy Jane/Uncle Frank warehouse sale! You go in, shop, try on your clothes in front of everybody (no men allowed), stalk a few women to decide if they are going to buy that LAST fabulous jacket in your size (just kidding that's probably only me), and checkout! But, here is the most fabulous part: everything is $13 and under!! WHOOHOO!! It was so much fun and I came home with several great items!
We are now at week 14 and a few days! YAY! Our sweet baby can now squint, potty in the womb, and suck his/her thumb! Baby is the size of a lemon and about 3 1/2 inches long! We are slowly but surely growing! Jon actually just said to me, "you are definitely getting a belly." I can still button my pants, but i predict this won't be happening long! I am gaining weight differently this pregnancy. To all of you out there who have multiple children; did you gain weight differently the second pregnancy like in your hips and thighs or does this mean my second baby is possibly a different gender than the first?! This week these things tasted very good: Dove milk chocolate hearts, strawberry sour straws, oranges, DP (ALWAYS), and salads with yummy dressings! We go to the dr on Friday for a checkup, can't wait! :)
Hope everybody had a great weekend! We have a fun week ahead of us!

This morning mr and I met Gavin and Jack with their mommies for brunch at Mimi's! You will notice Cade looks a little tired and worn out, I tried him going down to one nap a day today and let's just say he isn't ready for that just yet. He CRASHED on the way home and never even woke up to me taking him in or changing his diaper before laying him in his crib. Poor guy! I won't try this again for a while. This boy LOVES his night night time!
On Sunday Jon, Cade, and I went to the grocery store; this doesn't usually happen all as a family. For some reason when Jon joins us at the store we end up purchasing a few extra things like this....
Sunday we met Jon's fam for lunch (minus Court and Rhett-court man was too sleepy) at Uncle Julios. I had a serious crave for their salsa and fajitas!! Here is Jon practicing holding his 2 sons. JUST KIDDING, we don't know if baby #2 is a boy, although it would be pretty fun! This is baby Beckham and he sure is a CUTIE! :)
Did anyone watch the Bachelor last night? If so, do you think the whole thing with Rozy is a scam to spice up and dramatize each Bachelor season, or do you think Chris' story was real? Sometimes I wonder about that show....I watch it most every season, but how ridiculous is it that a man you possibly want to spend the rest of your life with is dating 20 other women at the same time?!
on a completely different and Real Life note....
Jon, Cade, and I were able to listen to sweet baby's heartbeat this morning! His/her heart was beating at a strong and healthy 156 (which is lower than Cade's ever was) bpm! We are SO thankful! Cade was jibber jabbering as always and when he heard the heart beating on the doppler he was completely quiet and still! Oh, I can't wait for him to be a BIG brother! :) Happy Tuesday everyone! :)

This week our baby is about 3 inches long and weighing about an ounce. He/she is the size of a shrimp and growing very quickly! His/her fingerprints have formed this week and his/her body is starting to catch up with the head size! I can't wait to call the baby by name, we will find out the middle of February, so not too much longer! I am feeling great this week, Cade slept until 7am this morning so that was a great sleep in for us all! It's the coldest day ever today, I hope everybody stays warm and bundles up! YAY for week 13! :)

This was the other day...Cade likes to help himself to a snack, such a good boy and chose grapes!
Havin' a fun day with Aunt Krissy, Gigi, and um-ma (my name has changed from emm-ama)!
Practicing walking, not sure about it just yet...

My cousin Jeremy and Amanda got married on Saturday in Paris, TX! They had a beautiful wedding and a really fun reception! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Mehringer! They are now cruising away on their honeymoon!
And Lastly here is Cade and his friend Brylee! These 2 were born the same day just a few hours apart. Brylee came over to play with Cade a few weeks ago and they play so well together. I think they could even pass as brother sister twins!
Happy New Year to everybody! Does anybody have any fun New Years resolutions? Let's hear about them!?! :)
