  • 24 Week Pregnancy Update Plus Our Family Christmas Photo & Lovely Gifts From Friends

    How far along? 24 weeks!

    Total weight gain/measurements: 117 lbs!

    Maternity clothes: I can't squeeze this bump in normal panty-hoes anymore.. thats pretty obvious. But finding a pair of maternity hoes to go with my "bell shaped NYE dress" that aren't as thick as 4 layers of skin seems to be impossible.. or maybe I am not looking in the right places? 

    Maternity bras have happened and I am SO much happier! 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day and I love how smooth and healthy my bump has been... minus the oily hands afterwards ;)

    Sleep: Pregnancy insomnia was a little better this week. We wash our sheets every weekend and Sunday nights are always the best night's sleep!I have found that reading a book instead of being on Pinterest or Youtube before bed, helps me fall asleep, and stay comfortably asleep. Not a genius discovery, but I finally caved and put the phone down! Also, can we talk about Target's SUUUUPER cheap basic pillows for a second?! They are like $4 each and are THE MOST COMFORTABLE PILLOWS EVER! I can't be bothered with my pregnancy pillow anymore, its too big. Target pillows are my jam! 

    Best moment this week:  Christmas was lovely! Phil got me a Panasonic LX7 Lumix camera so we can capture our little family! 

    Miss anything? Nope.

    Movement: Kicks for days! He is SO active. I love the little schedule he has made for himself. He isn't keeping me up at night yet, so I am pretty thrilled about that. 

    Food cravings: Everything. 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!!!! 

    Symptoms: Nothing new

    Belly button in or out? In!

    Wedding rings on or off? On!

    Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy, but a little stressed from the holiday rush. 

    Looking forward to: 3rd trimester! 

    This year's family Chirstmas photo. Emily hated her santa beard, then loved it. 

    Docs forever!!! 

    Beautiful Idiot Clothing sent us THE cutest outfit! A vintage gingham dress and denim shirt were upcycled and turned into denim shorts and a waistcoat. This is going to be his 4th of July outfit. Paired with a little summer fedora. 

    Sweetest onsie from a lovely friend! Thanks Katie!
