Aunt Mary was kind enough to get Ryan and I a Border’s gift card for Christmas, and this is the delightful result! We still have a couple of books on the way, but here are some of our Borders buys!
Pictures above (from left to right) “From Head to Toe,” “The Mixed-Up Chameleon,” “Goodnight Moon,” and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”
Thank you, Aunt Mary!
I found a little pregnancy survey that I’ll fill out periodically to give you a more accurate update:
*How far along?: 29 weeks and 2 days (in 2 more days I start rounding up to 30 weeks, ha ha)
*How big is your baby?: According to babycenter.com, a butternut squash, about 2 1/2 pounds
*Total weight gain?:…it’s for the baby, it’s for the baby, it’s for the baby….
*Sex: Girl 🙂 Elliott Delaney Robbins
*Maternity clothes: eugh. Are AWFUL! I can’t wait to wear all my other clothes again!
*Stretch marks: Just the ones I had before the baby! TMI? I use plenty of Palmer’s and Bio oil on all of my danger zones, so whatever happens is meant to be.
*Sleep: I sleep fine, although I think I’ve started snoring a little due to increased sinus blockage, which means Ryan is getting a little less sleep than usual.
*Best moment this week: I had a wonderful date with Ryan last night. We went to the Melting Pot and indulged for what could be the last time for a while 🙂 My only critique would be that making fondue with alcohol is gross.
*Food cravings: everything spicy; Thai, Indian, Mexican. I WANT IT IN MY MOUTH! (Not so much in my stomach!)
*Labor signs: Not really, thank goodness. It’s far too early. I’ve had some Braxton Hicks for the past couple of months, and the baby has always been a really low sitter. But, nothing that tells me to pack a bag and have Ryan on speed dial.
*Belly button in or out: Still in 🙂 Although it’s looking a bit more shallow as of late…
*What I miss: lying on my stomach! When the baby is out here with the rest of us I am going to lie on my stomach all day long.
*What I’m looking forward to: weekly midwife appointments. I know I’m weird, but I just love talking to my midwives about my baby and what she’s doing in there. And I love hearing her little heart beat.
