On October 22nd, five of my sweet friends hosted a gender reveal/baby shower. We are so blessed to have such generous and supportive friends and family. The day couldn't have been more perfect! Our little girls are so lucky to have such wonderful people to look up to in the future. I'll stop jabbering and let the pictures do the talking.

|22 Weeks with Harper and Avery|
How Far Along: 22 Weeks
Size of baby: 11 inches and almost a pound. About as long as a spaghetti squash.
Gender: Two precious girls...Harper Faith Kendle and Avery Ryan Kendle
Maternity Clothes: Some regular shirts and dresses, but mostly maternity.
Weight gain: 15 pounds total...Dr. Herzog told me to stop eating bread, pasta and rice. He only wants me to gain a pound a week from here on out. His goal is for me to gain no more than 30 pounds total. So, I have been really watching EVERYTHING that goes in my mouth this week. I weighed myself this evening and I have lost 1/2 a pound since Monday.
Movement: Moving and kicking like crazy. It's such an amazing feeling.
Sleep: Having major hip pain when I sleep. Finally had to break down and buy a body pillow. Sleeping so much better at night.
Symptoms: Reflux when I eat tomoto based foods or spicy food...so I just avoid it.
Cravings: Nothing in particular.
Best moment this week: Having all of our family and friends together for the gender reveal. Also, getting to see our babies at our appointment on Monday.
Pregnancy Highlights: The babies are starting to look like miniature newborns. Their lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and they are even developing tiny tooth buds beneath their gums. Their eyes have formed, but their irises still lack pigment. If you looked inside the womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair that covers their body and deep wrinkles on their skin. Inside their belly, their pancreas - essential for the production of some important hormones - are still developing.

We cannot wait to meet Harper Faith and Avery Ryan in February. We had a gorgeous gender reveal/baby shower on Saturday. As soon as I get some pictures from my friends and family, I'll post them to the blog. For now, here are some adorable hats my grandma bought for the girls.
|Are these not the cutest?!?! Can't wait to find an outfit to match.|
