I'm having a hard time figuring out how to upload the videos from my camcorder to my computer :( I'm going to keep trying so you can see Brendan dancing/jumping. Lately, he has added a head bob to the dancing and moves his arms, too, but I haven't gotten a video of that, yet.

Weekend before last, we went to Boerne to see my mom and stepdad one last time before they move in April/May. Brendan really enjoyed spending some time with his CiCi and PeePaw. Of course, I was terrible about taking pictures, but here are a few.

Brendan reading a bedtime story with CiCi.
More bedtime story.
Brendan doesn't look enthused ;) This is how he normally looks in pictures, even when he is happy! He's a hard kid to get to smile in pics!
Also the other week, it was a beautiful day outside so we went and played in the backyard. I put Brendan in a bathing suit with no diaper. Bad mistake on my part. He shortly pooped so I had to strip him and just left him without pants. Tim thinks it looks like he's pooping in this picture, but he's not! He's just checking out the yard animals haha
Playing with his water table while Shiner enjoys some refreshment.
This past weekend, we had our friends from the playgroup (moms, dads and babies) over for dinner and playtime. We had such a great time! I didn't get any pictures but some of the other moms did so hopefully I'll get one or two to post. The rest of the weekend was spent putting together the bunk beds for Brendan's big boy room (he won't be in it until June but we went ahead and got it painted this past week because we wanted to put the bed together) and putting up a chair rail in the nursery, which we also got painted. Everything looks SO good but I haven't taken pictures yet and Brendan is napping now so I can't get one of his room. I will do that ASAP and have them next time I post.

Last Monday, we had our doctor's appointment to hear the baby's heartbeat. It was 160 bpm. Brendan's was 162 the first time we heard it, so pretty close! Also, I did Intelligender a couple weeks ago, like I did with Brendan, to see what it said. It was right with Brendan so I wanted to do it again to test it.

Here were the results:
We'll see if it's right at our big ultrasound/anatomy scan on May 2! I can't wait! I will post a poll in the top right corner of the page so you can vote on what you think the baby will be.

Here is my 14 week belly picture from Thursday:

The belly is definitely starting to pop out and friends/family have noticed a big difference. I have only gained 1 pound over the 1st trimester, so I am hoping to keep up a slow weight gain so I don't gain the 60 pounds I did with Brendan. The post title is in reference to the fact that this week, Brendan will be 15 months old and I will be 15 weeks pregnant. That is the only time that will happen on the same week this pregnancy. We have Brendan's appointment on Wednesday with the pediatrician. I'm afraid he isn't going to have grown since his 12 month, which would mean he would have dropped to the 80th percentile on height. Which, of course, is okay, but I really loved him being high up there in the height department :)

I'll post his stats and details from the appointment next week. And, I'll keep working on getting the videos from the camcorder. Hope you all had a great weekend!
