Down to the SINGLE DIGITS!


(sorry for craptastic pic, i have a new phone and can't figure it out yet!)

26 weeks! I am now down to less than 100 days! Yikes! How did this happen??

I have a busy August and September with family things, wedding showers, weddings, and my own baby showers. It has sent me into panic mode....like panicking because the closet isn't organized enough.

We will say that nesting has kicked in. We cleaned out baby's room this weekend, and I went into crazy prego mode where i cleaned the whole house and baked a years worth of baked goods. After cleaning out his room, we discovered glow in the dark stars--EVERYWHERE! I cursed the kid who lived in the room for a little while and then felt a little bad. Then, I found the whole sticker sheet stuck to the ceiling, and I cursed him again. Not cool, and neither is the glow in the dark volleyball with wings the kid drew on the wall.

After we take off all those damn stars, we need to paint but I am having trouble deciding on a paint color. I had originally planned on a doing a green and orange scheme but after browsing through a home magazine I found a shade of blue (similar to turquoise) and orange and I was in love! It's reminds me of a vintage blue and I have so many ideas now....but wall color is not one I can think of! White furniture...including this rocker I found at.....Walmart. Yep, i was surprised too. The great thing is that it is un-upholstered so I can either make a (well, have someone make i should say) a cover, or buy a slipcover!


I am starting to think that this little guy thinks that my ribs are a play gym which is not fun, nor is it comfortable.

Sleep and I have become BFF's. I love sleep more than I love most things in life right now.

It's always great when people tell me their horror stories, like 'oh i was in labor for two days, or 'i heard on the news pregnant women really are susceptible for swine flu. you need to blah blah' thanks....

Next week is my last week in the 2nd trimester!!!

He is about 2 pounds right now about the size of a eggplant! Eyelashes are starting to grow, and his eyes can blink but his eye color has not developed yet! I am curious to see what his eye color ends up being because I have brown eyes, dark brown. Blake has one green eye and a blue eye! So, he could end up with anything!! I can't wait to find out!

loving the belly pics.

and i kind of like finding "artwork" left by previous home owners. my best friend in philly bought a house and when they moved stuff into the basement, they found pencil drawings on the drywall of ladies with big sagging boobs :) niiiice.
