How far along: 22 Weeks
How big is the baby: Baby boy is the length of a long papaya. This papaya looks huge! For the next couple of weeks he is between 10.5-11.8 inches. We went to Caputo's in the snow today to buy the papaya. As we checked out with our $8 papaya, the checker asked, "Did you come here just to buy this papaya?" We said yes. She asked, ".....Why...?" We were laughing a lot!
Weight gain: About 13.5 pounds.
Doctor/Medical Stuff: Nothing new!
Sleep: Been having a bit of a harder time staying comfortable throughout the night. Luckily it has been winter break so I can sleep in later to make up for it. I got a body pillow, but right now it really just annoys me a lot. I like falling asleep with it and then it gets in my way and I get mad at it.
Movement: I feel him a lot more now! And sometimes it is pretty hard! Adam got to feel him on New Year's Eve and one other time when he was punching pretty consistently!
Food/Aversions: I LOVE FOOD!
What I miss: Rolling over during the night without being uncomfortable.
What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery. I am SO EXCITED about this.
Oh! And This: We started registering this weekend! We started an Amazon list last week, but we decided on our "real stores" this weekend. We would be happy to just do Amazon, but we know a lot of people prefer a brick and mortar store! We had a lot of fun at Buy Buy Baby and Target picking out things for our little guy! But thank goodness it can be managed online because it is way too overwhelming to make all the decisions in the store! We liked getting the goodie bags from the stores too!
Last week we also hit up Joann and got lots of adorable fabric for my baby sewing projects! First stop: make a baby blanket! Now that school was canceled for the extreme cold tomorrow, I hope to finish the blanket! I am making this faux chenille blanket that I made for our nephew before he was born. But I went with the chevron option because his room is going to have grey chevron in it! It is a perfect blanket for playing on the floor. Yay tummy time! Some of the spots are really messed up. You would think I would be better at sewing straight lines than I really am. Adam says Baby Boy will love it no matter what!
And another note about the extreme cold:
I think it is crazy that this is the coldest it has been in 30 years. Since I was like 8 months old! Tomorrow is supposed to be a high of -14 with a windchill of up to (down to?) -53! We made sure to get our photo done today since Monday and Tuesday will be extreme. On the way in from taking the picture, I tripped over a covered pile of mulch. Luckily there is so much snow I fell forward, caught myself on my hands and it was all in a huge pile of snow. So no harm to the babe! Just cold pants!
