Baby is getting bigger and stronger every day! Of this I am certain because the kicks and punches have gotten stronger too! Baby is getting into a sleep schedule, which, before Itbert, I didn't know babies in bellies did! Our little guy (quite literally) Kicks off the day around 5... waking me up either groaning, running to the bathroom, or giggling uncontrollably.... depending on where the kicks land! This morning was all three! Poor dan! Yesterday around three I was trying to fall back to sleep after my sidekick side kicked me... and baby was so excited to be awake and up and moving... the kicking was so pronounced I actually felt a foot... a bit flat foot bottom hit my hand! Pretty amazing!
This week Itbert is the size of an eggplant and weighs about as much as a rutabaga... Hmmm... not really sure I can compare that. Next week we hit the 2 pound mark! Amazing how fast this little guy is growing!
This weekend, among other things, we're going to try to start getting the nursery ready! I can't wait! I've been dreaming dreams and trying to get some good ideas and scheming themes... Right now it's between a bright red mushroomed blue wall grass green theme... and a robin's egg wall yellow and white bird theme. I'm torn. Dan and I are both leaning towards the robin's egg, yellow and white. Who knows what we'll end up with though!
Life is moving so quickly! First thanksgiving, then Christmas, then baby! (plus, lots of good things in between!)
Last thing... The skirt I'm wearing in these pictures is from a pattern I drafted myself! I bought the fabric in a neighboring province in China. It was hand woven and beautiful so I had to find a good use for it. I'm in process of finishing about 10 maternity outfits at present! I'm pretty good with ideas and creating... it's the finishing that gets me every time! Hopefully there will be more to come very soon!!!! :)
