5 Weeks Prego

I'm 5 weeks along and the baby is now the size of an apple seed :) The baby is starting to form major organs (heart, kidney, liver, stomach) and systems (nervous, circulatory, digestive). How amazing :)

Well, yesterday was our Petke reunion and it was a lot of fun! All of my dads brothers and sisters were able to make it so it was the first time since my Grandma's funeral that all 9 siblings were together! This of course meant we had to take a big photo shoot :)

The Petke's are truly the most fun family and I just love being a part of a family that loves God and loves each other. It's a beautiful thing. I had the garage set up for the party so we spent most of the day outside which was nice. We also took a long walk downtown which was fun. It looked funny as I was at the front of the walk and looked back and you just see this huge herd of people walking downtown. Ha. We ordered a 6 foot sub from VG's for lunch and got a big cake and then pizza and breadsticks from Fenton House for dinner. It was a fun day!

Ethan is completely better and was by Friday afternoon. Sadly, Gracelyn started to not feel well yesterday and had a fever :( She sat on my lap a lot of the day and wouldn't go to anyone - it was obvious she wasn't feeling well. She woke this morning with a fever also but not as high as Ethan's was so I'm thankful. She doesn't seem to be interested in eating breakfast (another real sign she isn't feeling well seeing as she normally loves to eat!) so no church for us this morning. Ethan's seemed to last just a couple days so I think she'll be feeling better by tomorrow. Daddy just gave her some Pedialyte in her sippy cup and she likes it so that's good! Ethan didn't.

Today will definitely be a lazy Sunday for us...cleaning, playing with the kids, watching tv and maybe grillin' up something yummy for lunch or dinner. Will post pictures from the reunion soon.

Oh and one last thing. My first appt. for the new baby is set up! Yay! I'll have my first visit with my midwife on September 1st. I'll be close to 12 weeks by then and we should be able to hear the heart beat then - can't wait :)

Much Love,
Momma Keri

Oh, I wondered where you were this morning. Hope Gracelyn feels better soon! And what a wonderful day with your family yesterday!
