LESS THAN 100 DAYS!!



The ticker is down to two digits!

Here I am at almost 27 Weeks!

This week we had a lovely visit with my Mom, Dad, and brother. Everyone had a fun time watching and feeling Audrey move around in my belly! We had a lovely visit to the midwife and even went to pick out baby furniture. I really hope this energy sticks around! It sure is nice! Looking forward to upcoming showers and visiting with friends and family soon!

Dessert!

My favorite dessert from Mimi's Cafe! It was yummy!




The only thing that ruined that perfect meal for me was coming home to find a creature in the house! My kitty Penelope brought in a sweet little bunny rabbit to eat for her dinner but we saved it! Evan put it outside and it ran away to safety! BAD KITTY!

25 Weeks!! Whoa Rutabaga!! What is a Rutabaga?



Head to heels, Audrey now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

NEW this week...I have developed a new craving! ICEE! and guess what? At the gas station closest to my house, they offer every size for $1! Who would by a 16 oz for the same price you can get a 32 oz?? I know, crazy right?!

Also, I've been on the hunt for maternity swimsuits and nursing jammies as well as some new clothes. In my hunt for maternity items, I have discovered that lots of items are really ugly and unflattering or really expensive. Soo, haven't had much luck. Why do maternity clothing designers think you want to look like a frumpy ole thang? I'm young, I'm hip, can I please find some stuff that doesn't look like a potato sack?

Sooo excited and can't wait til next weekend when Mom (M), Dad (Poppy) and Nay come visit!

24 Weeks!

Baby Audrey is growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts her at just over a pound. Since she's almost a foot long (about the length of an ear of corn), she cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but her body is filling out proportionally and she'll soon start to plump up. Her brain is also growing quickly now, and her taste buds are continuing to develop. Her lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help her air sacs inflate once she hits the outside world. Her skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Baby Items I'm SUPER EXCITED about!!













BABY LEG WARMERS!!! This might be the cutest functional baby item ever! They are extremely cute, keeps baby’s legs warm, and you don’t have to take them off for each one of the 800 diaper changes a day! Cutest ones at BabyLegs & Etsy.


I would like to give cloth diapers a go! Would save us $$ on diapers and help out Momma Nature! Maybe set a goal of using them twice a week...think the washing might get tedious! gdiapers and bum genius have some cute ones but they are all just too adorable on their little booties!



A doorway jumper will be our new source of entertainment for the weekends! A MUST HAVE!!
An auto bottle warmer! For on the go bottle warming!

BEDDING!

This is Baby Audrey’s bedding from Pottery Barn Kids. It’s so sweet and I just can’t wait to get her room set up! Still trying to decide on wall paint colors and decor for the room…Any suggestions?
