25 Weeks!

25 weeks
 I'm now 25 weeks, yay!  It seems like time is still flying!  Everyone keeps warning me that it will drag the last couple of months and that then I'll wish is was flying.  While that may be true, I doubt it.  June and July will be busy with going to NY to visit family and for our baby shower, and I'm hoping to spend the weekends in July lounging by the pool and waiting on little man to show up.  I feel like all this hard work we are doing now should pay off and we will be rewarded with a lazy, relaxing July :)  We shall see...

The nursery is coming along!  We are almost completely finished painting.  I'm hoping to finish it this week so we can move the crib in and put it together.  I ordered it and the dresser last week, so far the crib is here but still waiting on the dresser.  The plan is to finish painting, clean the carpets, and then start moving some things in!  I CAN'T WAIT!  :)  I've started picking out some wall art and of course already have a couple of lamps.  Chris's favorite...he doesn't let me forget that I have a problem when it comes to lamps.  I love them and could buy a new one every week.  Oh well, at least Baby Elie will have perfect lighting in his room, ha ha!  We bought the crib mattress last night and some Dreft so I can wash the bedding before I put it on the crib.  Let's just say I could practically huff it...oh the sweet smell of a baby.  It makes me really look forward to washing his clothes!  :)

24 Weeks aka 6 Months!

24 Weeks

Wow time flies when you're having fun...or working your butt off...not sure which is more true at this point!  Sadly I missed the photo op for last week.  Chris was out of town and I wasn't motivated enough to have someone else take my picture, ha ha!  To say that we have been busy is an understatement.  How can one tiny little human make you feel the need to accomplish every single thing that somehow has never been all that important until now?  I want to say there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but just not sure how long that tunnel is. 

We have been busy car shopping, working on the nursery, getting ready for a yard sale, and getting ready to tear down the fence in our back yard to build a new one.  Fun times :)  To top it off Chris was out of town all last week for work so I have been hoppin!  I do love it though!  And I still feel great, so crossing things off my to do list makes me a very happy person.  Little Baby Elie has been quite active here lately!  I feel him moving around more all the time.  I'm hoping Chris will be able to feel him soon.  Our doctor's appointment and anatomy scan went perfectly.  They estimated his weight at 1lb, 2oz which is right on track.  All of his organs look great and they said he is growing perfectly.  My blood pressure is still perfect and I've lost 1lb. so that was a big relief for me.  I've been trying really hard to eat healthy and make smart choices for me and baby.  I do not want to end up with gestational diabetes or high blood pressure so I've been doing my best and so far it's paying off :)  Hopefully things stay this way!  I can't believe how much I love this little guy already.  I don't know if I'm getting hormonal or if I'm just in my usual emotional state, but every time I think about him I can't help but cry.  Chris would tell you this is the norm, ha ha!  Either way, I am one happy mama.
