Of course this is an update on my little wildman. He is a busy, busy boy. I've noticed a sort of schedule he's developed. Around 10 a.m. I start feeling him move around & he's pretty consistent until about noon. Another time that he is really busy is 8 p.m. - 11p.m.
It's funny to notice this about him. AW says he's like his mama, stays up late & likes to sleep late. We'll see how true that is when he actually gets here. Don't worry, I'm not holding my breath ;)
As of today I am 22 weeks! WooHoo! Over 1/2 way!!! I went to the Dr. today & everything measured great & he had a heartbeat of around 159. It was so funny because my appointment was during his "busy time" & he every time the nurse would move the doppler around he would give it a good, strong kick. He did not appreciate her pressing in on his space!
I've been taking pictures every 4 weeks & I started at 9 weeks. I'll do a recap of all my pics so far so you can see how large I've grown! AW makes sure I get my bowl of ice cream every night as you'll be able to see =)
I'm really feeling the squeeze now! It may be time to invest in some maternity clothes! Anyone up for a shopping trip? =)
We have already been receiving gifts for our little man! THANK YOU so much to everyone who has been giving us little things along with letting us borrow things! I love getting to borrow clothes & other supplies!
I've made some progress on the nursery. We're doing a tool theme based off of Hebrews 3:4 which says, "For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God."
There are also other verses that we'll incorporate which talk about "building each other up". It's so much fun getting to decorate!
We decided not to paint & to just leave his walls neutral but I do have his name on the wall already:
I found these plain wooden letters at Hobby Lobby:
And I just painted them yellow & hot glued on the wooden appliques I found & also hot glued on the ribbon:
I love them & I can't wait to do more fun projects! I must say though, finding tool-themed baby stuff is quite difficult. In fact, finding tool-themed stuff in general is quite difficult.
I had no idea! But I did come across this cute little hat at Cracker Barrel yesterday & HAD to get it! It's too perfect:
