6 months!

How Far Along: Last Saturday marked 23 weeks; according to What to Expect When You're Expecting 6 months is weeks 23-27 so here we are!

Size of Baby: > 1 pound, 11 inches, large mango

Weight Gain: 16 lbs

Stretch Marks: Nope!

Maternity Clothes:  My favorites are cotton shirts and knit skirts/dresses.

Gender:  Sweet baby boy!

Movement:  Sunday night I couldn't fall asleep.  I couldn't figure it out because I was so tired, but now I know why...  Had I been sleeping I would have missed feeling my baby boy kick from the outside for the first time.  I was so excited I woke up my husband! 

Sleep: Sleep comes and goes in spurts.  Mostly going at this point. 

Missing:  I have to admit with the feeling of fall moving in, I'd really like a pumpkin ale or some of the new caramel apple ale from Blue Moon.  But, if I'm being honest, I'd rather have a healthy baby boy than another beer in my whole entire life.  Easy choice.

Loving:    Consignment sales!  Why don't they have these for adults?  Or maybe they do and I just didn't know about them until I got pregnant.  Seriously, I spent $37 (well, my MIL did) at the consignment sale we went to Tuesday and came home with 2 bags full of clothes/toys!  We're talking Baby Gap loafers for $3 and Osh Kosh overalls for $5.  Awesome!

Craving:   Crunchy stuff.  Is that weird?  I think it's weird.

Feeling: Great!  Fall is so refreshing to me.  I just love everything about it; the air, the leaves, the colors...

Looking Forward: This weekend we are spending with some of our very best friends in Virginia Beach and I'm really excited to walk on the beach Saturday and do some thrifting while the boys play golf.  Then we will grill out Saturday night and head home Sunday.  

Best Moment(s):   Feeling baby boy from the outside was by far the best moment of the week.  I also loved going to a consignment sale with my mother in-law to purchase some cute clothes for our lil guy.  We had a doctor appoint Tuesday and it's always so wonderful to hear his heartbeat, nice and steady.

I decorated the house for fall.  It's my favorite.

We took the dogs for a hike at a new (to us) park nearby.
The trails were awesome and the weather was perfect.

I made a girlfriend a carseat canopy similar to this one.
I love the fabric she picked out (and I sell them for less than the ones I've seen online).
Also working on another diaper clutch for an upcoming baby shower!

Last, but definitely not least: I racked up some more miles for Manda's 30 in 30 challenge
for a total of 23 right now.  My goal is to get 50 this month.

Hope you had a good week!

  6. Wow that's amazing! Visiting from Manda's linkup. Keep up the great work! PS I love that you are a soon to be mommy who runs! When and if my time ever comes, I hope to carry my fitness habits into the pregnancy as well! So awesome.
