We didn’t have time to get to the store to get a squash, so we had to go with a picture from the internet this week! haha

How far along?:  32 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yup! I am so happy that the cool, fall weather is here! It’s time to bust out the cardigans and scarves…a much welcomed change to my wardrobe right now!
Best moment this week: I have been a delinquent about posting. Michael has been taking the picture every Sunday, but it’s just been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to post. Since I’ve posted last we have celebrated my 25th birthday and our first wedding anniversary, took our weekend-long childbirth class, and have gotten some major work done in the nursery!
Miss anything?: Breathing. haha I periodically have to take deep breaths just to get enough oxygen. Michael keeps thinking I’m sighing and asking what’s wrong…oh nothing, just trying to breathe!
Movement: It seems to be constant!
Food cravings: Fruit and lots of it.
Have you started to show yet?: Oh yes.
Gender prediction: It’s a boy!!
Looking forward to: My mom and sister are throwing me a shower this weekend, which I am just so excited for! I can’t wait to see my friends and family that I don’t get to see nearly often enough!
with michaelClearly we still have a bit of work to do in the nursery, but the walls are painted and the crib and furniture are all in place! Michael is going to paint a mural behind the crib…more pictures to come!

How far along?:  29 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yes, but I can still wear a lot of my pre-pregnancy tops and dresses. I’m beginning to have wardrobe meltdowns where I just feel as though nothing fits right and everything looks horrible. Not fun, and also not rational. haha
Best moment this week: It’s hard to believe we are now in the third trimester! Time has just flown by! I spent last week at Wyldlife Camp with the middle school kids I work with. It was exhausting, but a great time! My best friend Shannon just had her first son the end of July and I finally got to meet little man Finn over the weekend and he is just the cutest little thing!
Miss anything?: An uninterrupted night’s sleep…but I suppose that’s my body getting me ready for what’s to come!
Movement: I am supposed to start counting kicks now. They say I should be feeling 10 kicks in two hours…well Pipsqueak here gets those 10 kicks covered in about 2 minutes!
Food cravings: I haven’t been able to get enough onions this past week. Not raw, and not just onions, but more sauteed onions in things.
Have you started to show yet?: Oh yes.
Gender prediction: It’s a boy!!
Looking forward to: We have a big weekend this coming weekend! My birthday and our wedding anniversary!

It’s funny that I thought I was showing already in those early pictures!
