Maternity Mondays: Week 23

Monday, December 12, 2011

I remember at the beginning of my pregnancy thinking that when I got into the "20's" it would be so crazy. And here I am at week 23! And yes it is crazy. :) Instead of counting up the weeks are counting down. 17 more to go!

Last weekend my college roommate and one of my best friends, Kelly, flew down to visit. It was so great spending time with her just doing nothing like the old college days. It was fun having her coo over all of Blair's clothes and accessories and she got to feel her kick! She got me an adorable cozy blankie for Blair and my other college roomie, Diana, sent an adorable outfit down with her. Complete with a headband and pacifier that says "find me on facebook." Ha ha truly my daughter (even though she won't be allowed to have FB till middle school. maybe.)

Every week I am more and more amazed at all the movement going on in my belly. She is a busy bee! We like to "push" each other around a lot. She kicks me and I nudge her back. Back and forth, back and forth, until she's over it. We play this game a lot, even at 2:00 to 3:00 in the morning when I should be sleeping. I just can't ignore her. Rolling over in bed is getting increasingly difficult and I still loathe picking stuff up off the floor. But really that is all I have to complain about. And that's nothing.

This week on my blog I'm really getting into the Christmas spirit. I'll be featuring a homemade recipe that's to die for (if you like peanut butter and chocolate), showcasing our Christmas tree, debuting our Christmas card, and probably showing off some of Blair's newest clothes :). Then I have two glorious weeks off from work...yippee!


  1. YAY! Fun week ahead...and you're just looking amazing! Can't wait to get to week 23...still have a ways to go!!!

  2. Mmm, peanut butter balls. I look forward to them all year!


I love reading what you have to say! Leave a makes my day!
