Week 27

Happy Thanksgiving! So thankful for my husband, who is the best man I know and going to be the best father. So thankful for the tiny baby growing in my womb. So thankful for Dale. :) so much to be thankful for!

This week we are 27 weeks and the size of a head of cauliflower! 

We worked on the nursery a little this week too! Got a cozy glider/recliner 

And I'm trying to put together our baby's monogram to hang on the wall, Brian helped with the staple gun and securing then letters, but we still need to get them up on the wall. 

Getting close to the 3rd trimester! Almost baby time :)

Week 26

I woke up this Sunday and thought, "I look pregnant!"  Brian said he thinks I've looked preggo for awhile, but hopefully people see a tummy with purpose now :)

Little guy is the size of a Green Onion this week! 1 2/3 of a pound and still kicking! Only some of his kicks are felt on the outside, I love it. By far my favorite thing in pregnancy!

On a different note, we bought the baby a new car ;) it is a 2012 jeep grand cherokee and feels super safe and so fancy! I love it. Brian and I made a list of "Before Baby" a few years ago and slowly but surely we are crossing things off... This was one of the last ones! 14 weeks til our baby boy... so excited!

Brandon is a long time buddy and married to my bestie in Maui, Nicole... He helped us get this jeep while he was back in town from paradise and it was so great to see him, but I miss his wife so much!

Week 25

25 weeks and the size of a rutabaga! Almost a pound and a half and getting stronger!

Brian is able to feel baby kicks on the outside of my belly from time to time these days... And that is my new favorite activity :)

Starting to show a little belly, and getting everything together. Work is getting a little more uncomfortable, but my countdown to maternity leave is getting close!

Bedroom furniture!

For the past 2 1/2 years we have been using our extra room by the master bedroom as a closet, so the only thing in our master bedroom was a bed, a clock, a small bookshelf, and two candles. That is all. Very basic. I have been scouring Craigslist for bedroom sets and had no luck based on our budget and my taste ;)

These are the only before photos I have:

Then about 2 months ago when we started to get the nursery ready we had to get down to business and get dressers for our bedroom. So if you give a mouse a cookie... That meant I wanted everything including a bed frame, side tables, a whole coordinated set. So we ordered from a a small company in Spokane that I fell in love with their style and the price was right on so we ordered a whole set. 8 weeks later they delivered... Part of the set. 

No kidding, they forgot our knobs for all the drawers, the bed frame pieces that actually hold the mattress, and the mirror that goes on top of the dresser. So, every part of the furniture was messed up. We had a halfway bedroom for almost two weeks. 
Just yesterday that came by and finished the delivery. Our drawers work, our bed is on the frame, and we have the mirror. 

I'm so excited about how the furniture makes our room homey and finally finished! :) well worth the wait

Week 24

24 weeks and over a pound! The size of a corn on the cob!! The little bump doesn't go away when I try to "suck in" my belly anymore :)

The nurse in me is thankful for every day past 24 weeks. :)
