week twenty-two

It feels like someone is flicking me from the inside this week, which basically means Christmas came early because this is the thing I've been most excited about all along. 

Finally some real reminders of this little person who's going to be such a huge part of our lives!

And now that we know he's a boy, it's easier to visualize things like the nursery, a baby shower, and even a first birthday party (that's a long way away, I know, but this is where my mind goes). 

Tell me if this is weird…but for the last week I've been on the hunt to find one piece of baby boy clothing that I love more than words, so that I can channel all of my thoughts towards being excited to dress him up. So far no luck, although Mexx Kids and Baby Gap were the closest I came. Joe Fresh was quite disappointing until about size 3 or 4 in the boys section.

I may have to get creative.

I also need to figure out a way to convince Brittany to come over again to do another coat of the grey paint in the nursery (maybe some sushi or some baked goods…).

As for a pregnancy update, here's what's going on:

  • Flipping over in bed at night is getting to be a whole procedure.
  • I bought my first bit of maternity clothes, starting with two pairs of leggings and one pair of jeans.
  • I feel the baby kicking just a little bit (similar to a flick as I mentioned before) and it usually happens at night while we retire to the living room and watch Breaking Bad.
  • I'm crying less these days which is apparently normal and I'm sure Ry is happy.
  • My appetite is super low, but now that we know it's a boy Ry has been on my case extra hard about eating protein. He makes me omelettes and I eat them.
  • I've been spending a lot of time at Loraleah's place trying to get Luca's newborn photos taken but he's just too good of a baby and wants to be awake all the time! However, the photos that I've taken so far make me crazy excited to take photos of my own little guy. 
  • Sleeping almost all of the time, same old. 
  • Oh yeah, and the baby is as big as a cantaloupe.
