It's time to tell you...

that the Bell Family is growing! Solon and I had a 2nd ultrasound today, and according to the ultrasound tech, we are 13-weeks along with a new baby Bell on the way! Due date is set for sometime around January 13. It has been pushed up twice because of the size it's measuring versus conception date - looks like we might have another big baby on our hands!

Here is a profile shot of the little thing right now:

(Actual size right now is about the same as a mini carrot!)

And here is a video of the baby dancing around during the ultrasound:

We are so excited for this upcoming adventure, and we know Quincy & Forrest are going to be awesome big brothers! We will find out mid-August whether it's a boy or a girl, but in the meantime, I am just trying to make it through the day as I deal with this fatigue and "All-Day Sickness" - it's not just in the morning with me. I have none of the same cravings as I did with Quincy, and although I was sick through 16 weeks with Quincy, according to Solon I am "way worse" this time. I will spare you all the details - ah the joys of pregnancy!

Meanwhile... over the last few weeks, Quincy has been spending some quality time with friends




Allison G!

He also currently loves to wear his Daddy's shoes around the house

A highlight of the summer for me was meeting Holly & Chad's baby for the first time. A while back, I posted pics of the baby shower that Becky & I threw for Holly, and now the little angel is here.

Here is Makena Grace with her Aunt Dida!

Quincy will do a great job of protecting her through the years

Scott figured out pretty quickly how to make Makena comfy

The Hutton family and Grandma Jill

Love the new hair Holly!

I am so glad our camera has a timer! This was so fun. Solon just adored holding little Makena.

We got to see them one more time before they went back to Reno, and I even got to see my friend Katie and meet her baby Isabella!

Makena is so tired after her exciting trip to AZ

Since Becky & Scott haven't figured out the timer function on their new camera yet, I volunteered to take some belly pics of them since Becky is over half-way there!

We had such a wonderful time spending the 4th of July weekend with great friends!!!
