Time's a-flying!

I remember saying to Chris last month, "4 months still seems like a long time, but when we get to 3 months, I'm gonna be freaking out!" Welp, I'm freaking out ha! We only have about 3 months left and I feel like there is so much to do/buy/prepare for. Poor Chris has been getting honey-do lists and I think he is about sick of them, ha! I can't help it I feel like we need to get stuff done!! Thank goodness we are almost finished with the last details of the house renovations and then we can just focus on baby. I got a razor blade and started scraping of paint splatters in the bathroom last night and I think Chris realized I really am freaking out, ha. So to calm me down he let me go ahead and order the baby bed and bedding!!!!! I am sooo excited!! Baby bedding sure is expensive I tell ya, but I fell in love with this bedding before I even knew it was a boy. I never really found any girl bedding I loved so when we found out it was a boy one of my first reactions to my Mom was, 'I get to get my bedding!!!!' So needless to say I am super excited about this!! Since I have been a slacker on weekly belly pics I will share some pics of my baby bedding with you. I love it. Classy, yet rustic, yet baby. It's Serena & Lily - Dylan Collection ( you can click here for better pictures).

*25 Weeks*

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 25 weeks
Size of baby: The size of a rutabaga (approx. 13.7 inches long & a/b 1.5 lbs)
Maternity Clothes: Yes, don’t know what I would do without them! But can still wear some regular shirts & dresses.
Gender: IT’S A BOY!!!!!!!
Movement: All the time and I am loving it! He loved his trip downtown and some hot chocolate this week! He went crazy :)
Sleep: Sleep is good! Wish I could sleep in later on the weekends, but I guess I should kiss those days goodbye anyways!
What I miss: Not much, I really can’t complain…
Cravings: Sweeeets!! I have purchased yogurt instead of ice cream, so I feel a little better about it. Ha!
Symptoms: The. Brain. Is. Gone. I am usually the one to remember stuff, but not these days. My mind is so out there and I am very forgetful these days – I can’t stand it! Also, I am getting major anxiety about the baby preparations!! I feel like I need to do stuff and buy stuff all the time. 3. Months. Oh. My.
Best Moment this week: Saturday morning Grayson decided to show out a little bit. I felt him kicking a lot while we were lying in bed so I sat up and let Chris feel. He was going to town! Then Chris got real close to my stomach and started talking to him. Grayson kept kicking right where Chris’s face was and it hit him on the nose!! We were loving it! I can’t wait for all the Saturday mornings cuddled up in bed with my boys ;) {& girls, Copper you can snuggle too!}

Saturday I was itching to get out of the house! We didn't make it to BBQ Fest this year because Chris was working and then Sat. it was cold, ugh. But I just really wanted to get out of the house! I think everyone else having fun made me want to get out and have some fun too! Chris suggested us going to get him some golf attire for his golf trip coming up, haa not what I had in mind. Instead we decided to just head downtown with no plans. I wanted to see what the river looked like due to the flooding and there was a Red Birds game so we said why not! Well we headed down and walked around looking for a place to get some grub. Not wanting to spend an arm and a leg, we ended up at The Rendezvous. I have not eaten there in a while and unfortunately we were both very disappointed. Chris can definitely cook some better ribs! I think they have just become so commercialized they try to get you in and out and the quality has gone to poop. Oh well, it was fun to be downtown. After "linner" haha - {Chris & I call it that when we eat a late lunch/early dinner - haha, I know dorks :)} it was a little too chilly for a baseball game so we decided to take a rain check on the Red Birds! We'll be back though! I love random days like that with my hubby! It won't be long when we can't just hop in the car and go... there will be baby, stroller, and 9,000 other things involved! But I know we both wouldn't have it any other way:) I can't wait for my little family!!
