*This was supposed to post yesterday but apparently it decided not to!*
It doesn't really get much better than that does it? The day starter off perfect w drew taking the kids downstairs to let me sleep a little more. I slept till 8:30!! That hasn't happened in a Long time. It was heaven. Then we were planning on a bike ride to brunch, but it looked like rain so we drove to Jelly, a favorite breakfast spot I have blogged about before. There wasn't a wait to sit outside, and we all had sweaters so even though it was only high 40's we sat outside. Best decision, as it's covered and it started to rain. So cozy. After brunch we drove around looking at some different neighborhoods in the area we might want to buy a house in at some point. Perfect morning! And now tindra is napping, I'm blogging from my phone, jasper is working on his science project and drew is getting everything ready to make his amazing broccoli cheddar soup. My favorite meal he makes. Yep, perfect fall Sunday! Hope yours is just as great!

How far along: Just about 17 weeks.
Size of Baby: Inbetween an avocado and a bell pepper, about 6 oz
Total Weight Gain:I gained back all the weight I lost in the past three weeks now that I'm no longer sick, plus 2 more, so up two from pre pregnancy.
Maternity Clothes: I totally busted out the maternity jeans early this time, like three weeks ago because it just feels better. And bigger bras. Tops and leggings are normal, but I'm going to need to buy some maternity leggings soon, I think I'm sitting rather low. Or rather, the baby is.
Gender: Boy! We will double check in a few weeks but I could tell before the ultrasound tech said anything so I'm definitely thinking boy. Plus, I just knew even before the ultrasound.
Movement: Some little taps, but not regularly at all. I have felt what I think is him the last few nights, but I can't wait till its more regular and stronger!
Sleep: Decent, I'm pretty much tired all the time though. Apparently I need to up my protein, like triple it.
What I miss: Until this week I have been missing coffee, it sounded so gross till now, but now I can have a tiny bit! yay!
Cravings:No strong cravings, mainly just aversions. But carbs are basically the only thing I want right now. And pears.
Symptoms: Out of breath very often, and dizzy.
What I’m looking forward to: REAL fall weather. We have been having some chilly mornings but then by mid afternoon it's up to 80's. Over it! I want boots, and scarves and sweaters. All day, not just in the morning and a tank top by afternoon.
17 weeks last time. I definitely think I'm sitting bigger and lower this time!

BOY! And couldn't be more excited about it!
Here's a little video I posted on instagram last night.
Tindra is still 100 percent convinced it's a baby dinosaur though. She has a slight obsession with Dinosaur Trains, so I thinks he's in for a bit of a disappointment in March!

Our second full day in Stockholm we woke up to over cast and a bit chilly (high 50's, low 60's) but I love this kind of weather so it didn't bother me at all! After another delicious breakfast (okay brunch since we didn't wake up till 10:30) we took the boat into town again, this time to meet some friends. I met Nadja about 4 years ago (I think?) when she was an au pair in Denver and we would do play dates with the kiddos. Now she's back living in Stockholm with her (American) fiancé and beautiful baby girl. We made plans to meet up with them to walk around, but the weather had other plans!
As soon as we got off the boat it started pouring, and then within a minute, hailing. We took cover underneath the awning of a fancy hotel that had heated lamps and waited out the storm. 20 minutes later or so it was just sprinkling so we went and met our friends at The most amazing library I have ever been in. It's on the top floor of a big building right in the middle of the city, and a complete dream for kids. I didn't get a really good picture of the library, here's one below I found. The whole library was filled with little places for kids to climb, and get cozy with books. If I lived here I think I would want to come every rainy/snowy/crappy weather day. Not only could you sit and read/look at books everywhere, they also had an amazing craft room. I think we paid $3 for Jasper to get a tray of different items to make a craft with. He ended up making a really cool necklace. The most amazing thing was they had a bunch of used books for sale. I ended up buying like 8 different Swedish books for like $4. Amazing!
