Magnificent Baby Girl Update
How far along: 21 weeks
Best moment of the week: Going through my sister's daughters clothes and bringing home clothes for Baby M. Oh and the dresser/changing table too! I *heart* my sister and getting to spend time with her!
Second Best: Shopping for the most adorable scrapbook supplies so my bestie can make Baby M a scrapbook!!
Sleep: Pretty much the same except my allergies has been pretty bad.
Movement: *swoon* I think my favorite thing is feeling her move! She does it more and more often and I can't get enough. I know later on when she is hurting me I will not feel this way so I am enjoying it.
Craving: After my chili cheese fries last week, I still could eat some more... and I still love mint chocolate chip ice cream.
What I'm looking forward to: Mr. Magnificent finishing our 1950 Chevy Pickup so I can move the nursery around and get it all set up. Oh and rearrange our bedroom to move the treadmill out of the nursery.
Daddy's Thoughts: He had the biggest smile when talking about getting to shave soon. -Backstory- He decided when we started trying, this time last year, that his way of "waiting" was that he wouldn't shave his facial hair until I GIVE BIRTH. There are some members of my family that can't stand his facial hair. To be honest, I like it!! He has very sensitive skin and when he is shaving his face just blisters (he won't use any lotion or anything afterwards, he doesn't like how it "feels"). So not shaving means he is more comfortable.
Baby M is.... the size of a carrot!
How your baby's growing:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long —the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
