23 weeks, or day 165 to be exact… And baby is doing good and kicking constantly! He is so much more active than I remember Claire being, which I guess makes sense since they say that boys have more energy than girls. I’m definitely not complaining, it’s one of my favorite parts of pregnancy. One of my not-so-favorite parts of pregnancy though is the fact that my boobs are HUGE and getting bigger by the minute. Which prompted a shopping trip to our neighborhood Target this evening (that, and we were out of toilet paper). Now, I have already purchased larger sized bras since I got pregnant, since that area was the first to double in size. But apparently I jumped the gun, because I have already outgrown those. I guess I just think it’s hilarious that I am purchasing size 36D bras, ME, haha… am I the only one laughing? Well, maybe that was too personal of a subject to blog publicly about but we just got home from Target so it was on my mind.
This weekend we went up to Lacey, Washington for a Tai Kwon Do tournament that my nephew Wyatt was entered in. He is 6 and taking TKD for the first time. This was his very first competition and I am so proud of him for not getting stage fright! He did great and I am pretty sure, judging by the huge toothless grin on his face, that he had a ton of fun doing it! Great job Wyatt!!
And then we drove slightly southeast to Brandee & Michael’s to do some pumpkin carving with Silas! I was too busy enjoying the great pumpkin art happening, and holding the sweet Taylor, (who has the most beautiful baby eyes) to get very many pictures. I am really bummed that I didn’t get any pictures of our wonderful hosts, so I will make up for that next time we see them.
It was a really great weekend and even though we still didn’t make any progress on the nursery setup, we did add to our collection of stuff. Our friend Sascha, with her beautiful baby girl Anika, dropped by for a visit this afternoon and brought us her swing! I think the baby is going to be very happy with this, since I can remember Claire enjoying her swing when she was first born. I’m sure it will buy us some extra sleep time here and there, at least, that’s what I’m hoping! Thanks Mike & Sascha!
I hope that you’ve all had a great weekend, did you do anything fun to celebrate the fall season?
