I love my rocking chair and my little basketball baby! Oh yeah… my dog – I love him too.
Gender: It’s a Boy!
Food Cravings: Cheeseburgers! The really thick and juicy kind that you can only make at home.
Food Aversions: Hard-boiled eggs. I was trying to eat one of these a day to get more protein in my diet, but I just can’t do it any longer! They’re really grossing me out.
Movement: He’s still moving around almost all of the time. Also, I think he’s trying to kick his way out on my left side! I’m constantly pushing that little foot back in towards the middle… it really hurts when he kicks like that!
Maternity Clothes: My feet no longer fit into any of the shoes in my closet. I’ve actually been wearing sandals to work everyday for the last two weeks now! Totally against the dress code, but whatever. I’m not going out to buy new work shoes for these last few weeks of pregnancy.
Worst Moment of the Week: Do y’all realize just how HOT the temperatures were here in Phoenix this weekend??? OMG! I think the high on Friday was 119 and Saturday was 118. Good golly, this pregnant girl has been seriously uncomfortable!
I stayed indoors whenever I could and drank lots and lots of ice-cold water. The ice maker in our freezer could hardly keep up with us this weekend.
Best Moment of the Week: Since we were cooped up in the house all weekend, we took the time to start checking off some things on the Baby To-Do List:
- Rocking Chair – put together and set up in the baby’s room!
- Thank you Cards – almost done.
- Baby Laundry – all clean, folded and put away!
- Car Seat – got it installed… but hasn’t been inspected by the fire dept. yet
Looking Forward to: The 4-day holiday weekend coming up! I’ve just been so tired lately… it’s such a struggle for me to make it through a full day at work. It will be really nice to get to take that much needed nap in the middle of the day!
Best Quote from the Daddy-to-be: Justyn was a sweetheart this weekend and helped me out with the baby laundry. I was on the floor handing him items to hang in the closet when he asked “How do his clothes already smell like a baby?”
I laughed, then explained to him that he was just smelling the special “Dreft” laundry detergent that’s made for babies.
Newest Baby Item(s): I’ve been looking for an outfit for our little guy to wear home from the hospital. I’m still not sure I’ve found what I’m looking for, but I did pick up these two newborn outfits from Carter’s.
