26 days left.... WHAT??

I got home from running errands and put my comfy clothes on right away.  I forgot I hadn't taken a pic yet!
So don't mind outfit.... but this is what I look within minutes of getting home for the rest of the day! 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 36 Weeks and 2 days
Size of baby:  about 5 lbs to 5.5 lbs 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gained 18lbs some how I lost almost 2 lbs from last wk.
Maternity Clothes: maternity pants but normal tops so far which is crazy 
Gender: GIRL!!!! Amelia Evelyn Jayne
Movement: She is running out of space but still manages to move a lot
Sleep: getting up more to go to the bathroom and just can't stay asleep lately
Symptoms:  back pain still
What I miss: being comfortable... 
Cravings: It seems like I can't find anything that sounds good to eat this week
Best Moment this week:  We also got the pack in play in and ordered the rest of Amelia's diapers and of course the best was that we got to hear Amelia's heartbeat again today! It was a strong  beat in the  140s. 
What I am looking forward to:  Deric's parents are on their way here for a visit. They left this morning and will get here Wednesday I am sure.  It will be nice to visit with them one. What is crazy is the next time we see them again or any family, Deric and I will be parents! 

I can't believe I didn't post anything about Christmas but I will recap ya'll now. Our day was pretty uneventful. We did have our neighbors over for dinner. I made a ham and all the fixings. It was pretty tasty.Deric and I didn't really buy each other much because we have bought SO MUCH baby stuff. Honestly I  couldn't even think of anything that I wanted. But we did buy our new camera and a video camera so those were pretty big buys. I did get Deric a sweater to open on Christmas morning and he got me some lounge pants, a zip up hoddie, and new slippers. I am sure I will be spending lots of time in lounge pants. So I needed some more.  We did buy our "last" big ticket item... we ordered the rest of Amelia's diapers. Once those come in I will have HOURS of washing them all. They have to be washed 5 to 8 times before use!

I didn't take one picture on Christmas.... told you it was uneventful! But we will be doing Christmas with my in-laws when they get here. So I will post pictures then. I am leaving all my decor up till after they leave. They have never seen our tree so I thought it would be nice for them to see it. I am sure Saturday or Sunday I will be tearing the tree down and putting everything away. Well Deric will be putting everything back up in the attic!


  1. You look great! I was just thinking about how when we were out there you just had a little bitty bump and now its a basketball!!! But such a blessing! I will be shipping you a little something by the end of the week. I am so excited and look forward to hearing that little Miss Amelia is here!!!!!! Happy New year!!!! Much love! Candace

  2. It won't be long now. Just today Ana Kate was asking if you still had Amelia in your belly...then she told me that she's ready for her to come out so she can tickle her. lol.
