Here's a look back at what's been going on the past two weeks for today's edition of the #fridayfive! Since I was sick, I missed telling y'all some pretty exciting things about Miss AC!

the Sowell life's Friday five... 

25 1/2 weeks photo

1) {Hiccups} I felt AC having the hiccups. I've only felt it once (that I know of), but it was the coolest feeling. It only lasted a few seconds, but I knew it was something different than her kicks and movements.

2) {Kicks, Kicks & More Kicks} The same day I felt her having the hiccups, I got to feel her kick on the outside in bed that evening. And it was a good kick. The Mr was asleep so I woke him up and he got to feel her kick, too. One of the best feelings for both of us because he now knows what I'm feeling on the inside!!

3) {Napping} I'm back to napping again. Some days I feel like I need a nap in the mornings and in the afternoons. Of course, I usually only get in a half hour to an hour, but it's needed and wanted.

4) {MB Got Kicked} When Marsie Belle comes to visit, she thinks she's supposed to lay in bed til noon. So if you want to spend anytime with her in the mornings, you have to promise her turkey or lay with her. Well, I was laying with her this week and she started stretching. She put her paw on my bump and pressed in and AC kicked her! And as soon as she did, MB put her head on my bump. It was the sweetest thing. But AC didn't stop moving, she was wiggling away in there. Maybe they are already buddies!

5) {Stretch Marks} Some people might be upset when they get stretch marks while pregnant, but I'm not. I've noticed three so far. Two are kinda small and one is kinda large, but it makes me smile because it means she's getting bigger so mommy has to get bigger, too. It's not like I'm going to be sporting a bikini, ever. So I'll take these "battle scars" any day if it means my girl is growing and doing great in there!

Now, who's ready to link up?!! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!! Please stop by and visit with the other bloggers who link up. It's a great way to find new bloggers to follow! And who doesn't love comments, right? =) Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. So pretty, Joy! I am loving that shirt too! That is so cute that MB put her head on AC :) They are for sure going to be BFF's!! It's crazy how dogs can sense things. When my sister was pregnant with Christopher, our dog Rusty would hang around her to protect her all the time. The morning that she went into labor, Rusty was in my dad's room and he instantly got up and ran to her bedroom door and started barking and trying to get in. My dad went to see whats up, and that is when my sister's contractions started!!

  2. Aw that's so exciting!! :) I can't believe that you're feeling her move so much! I mean, I can believe it, but I can't believe you're already this far in your pregnancy. So exciting. :)

    Have a great weekend, friend! Also, I love the top you're wearing in that photo.

  3. Exciting stuff! You look great!

    I think AC and MB are already fast friends!

  4. Yeah for the return of the nap! I love all the new things! So exciting! And the stretch marks - trust me - I refer to my mid section as my tiger attack. Just be careful not to scratch them. Trust me. Gentle rubs with lotion if possible! If they don't itch now, just wait! But I am with you. It's part of this amazing process and I wasn't blessed with "Non Stretch Mark" genes!

    Happy Friday Friend! I have been loving meeting all the new ladies on the link up! Some Houston girls! Super awesome!!

  5. You are such a cute pregnant lady! I love your picture :) And LOVE that story about AC kicking MB! That's so cool, I know they already have a connection. She's gonna be a good big sister :)
