How far along: 26 weeks
Symptoms: Heartburn & indigestion, hip pain
Maternity Clothes: Yup.
Total Weight Gain: 14 lbs… yeeps!
Gender: girl, & pretty sure we’re set on a name 😉
Sleep: I get up to pee about a zillion times, but other than that, sleep is good.
Cravings & Aversions: sweet & salty things
Funny Moments: Emmalyn pretending to tickle the baby
Nesting: Just the other day, I got all new bedding/pillows for the full-sized bed in the baby’s room. I found a navy and white table cloth with a rope pattern all over it that I’m going to turn into the curtains. I picked up the matching table runner, too, to lay on top of the dresser to protect the wood. They were all a steal from both Marshall’s and Stein Mart. I also found the most perfect decorative (but totally practical) baskets–in coral and navy. With anchors! I thought for sure I would have a difficult time finding coral-colored items, and would have to change part of our color scheme to pink (which I really didn’t want to do because I’ve been there, done that), but Stein Mart blew me out of the water with the amount of coral-colored nautical items they carried. Success!
Best Moments This Week: Emmalyn calling her (“old”) playroom the new baby’s room, and even *giving* some of her stuffed animals to her “little sister”. It’s so sweet that she already wants to share. Let’s just hope it stays that way…
What I Miss: My energy.
Looking Forward To: Matching sister outfits!
