Baby Update - 6 Months

This pregnancy has flown compared to my pregnancy with Alexa. I guess I have other things to be focused on this time around!! Anyways, things are going well. This past month was a busy one and a sick one for our household. In fact, Alexa seems to have just come down with yet another cold after JUST getting over a nasty one. Gotta love the winter!! I've been feeling pretty good though...gained a little too much over Christmas but hopefully that'll taper off over the next couple months. :-) I'm feeling Payton move ALL the time now. She's a mover and a shaker just like Alexa was, although I think she's sitting a lot lower as I only feel her moving from my belly button down, whereas Alexa was all over the place. I still am hungry 100% of the time and extremely exhausted 100% of the time. I thought I was supposed to get some spurt of energy in the 2nd trimester but no such luck. Oh well. I can't complain too much though, this pregnancy has been pretty easy.
A cute little tidbit...Alexa is very aware of where baby Payton is right now and what her name is. I don't even have to remind her...when I ask her what her baby sister's name is, she immediately says "Taypon". Apparently, she can't quite say Payton and so gets the "p" and "t" mixed up. But I think it's pretty cute...a nickname for this little one perhaps???? I guess we'll see.
