oh baby | eighteen weeks

baby's size | baby is the size of a sweet potato |  5.6 inches and 6.7 ounces 

gender | a boy!! 

feeling | overall, so good!! starting to love being pregnant - yay!! 
maternity clothes | so far i don't need to wear them but have purchased a few and loved the pants when i tried them on - so comfortable. 

workouts | walks on the beach! 
sleep | much better than last week! i think the baby loves the salt air <3 

cravings | just lots of ice cold water

movement | sunday, august 9, was a very special evening. mr. monaco and i both had our hands on my belly when i felt baby boy do a real kick! mr. monaco couldn't feel it, but it was the most evident movement so far! throughout this week, i have felt him more and more … i think baby boy loves the beach like his mom and dad. 

fun facts | he is yawning, hiccuping, sucking, and swallowing. he's twisting, rolling, punching, and kicking, too. 
my view yesterday- 'i see skies of blue and clouds of white'

miss anything | red sangria! 

best moment of the week | feeling the baby kick! loved it- so much. 

looking forward to | our ultrasound next week i can't wait to see him! the last time we saw him {at eight weeks} he looked like a little shrimp! 

next appointment | next week!!! 
   there are a few days left to enter my current giveaway!
