27 weeks

3 months from now, we could {and hopefully will!} have a healthy little baby girl.
3 months!
Do you know how fast 3 months flies by?
It is crazy. Pure joyful craziness! 
I'm not sure where the time is going, or how it's even October...?
But one thing is for sure, time is not slowing down.

  • After taking these pictures, I looked back at all the previous ones. I had a good laugh about how I thought there was a bump there at 12, 14, and even 16 weeks. I can't wait to put them all together at the end and see the bump progression!
  • The husband seems to be getting more excited by the day. The whole "we're having a baby" thing is finally starting to feel real. It's the cutest thing when he talks to her and reads to us! In fact, hubs kinda deserves a whole post dedicated to him, he is that awesome.
  • Baby girl is somewhere around 2 pounds, about the size of a head of cauliflower, and about 14 1/2 inches long! She is moving all the time and I love it.
  • The nursery is painted! We procrastinated so much, and for good reason...we're both horrible painters. But, it's done. And it's pink. Next week the crib and the area rug will be delivered, and the glider will hopefully be in. We have a bookshelf and a dresser. I can't wait to start putting it all together now...let the fun part begin!
  • Cravings? Apples, pumpkin bread, anything sweet...candy, baked goods, you name it. And anything spicy. Last night I made this chicken curry with jasmine rice and it was so delish! Today I had some leftovers for lunch followed by a few dark chocolate Hershey kisses. Perfection. That saying "Sugar and Spice and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of" certainly seems to be holding true for this little one :)
  • What am I Missing? Pumpkin beer and a glass of wine, seriously missing these! And being able to easily bend over. It's getting harder to do simple things like get off the couch. I can't imagine what it will be like 10 weeks from now.
  • Looking forward to? Tonight we're going to watch the DVD from the 3D ultrasound with my in-laws. I could watch it every day...it's so amazing to know that little tiny thing is inside of me and growing. What a blessing! 
  • This weekend the husband and I are headed on a mini "baby-moon" to the Berkshires. 3 nights at a bed and breakfast. I'm so excited. The weather forecast could not look any better and the foliage should be in full force. We're looking forward to hiking, apple cider, delicious breakfasts, antiquing, and lots of snuggling!
