We are officially 2 months (or sooner) away from meeting our baby girl! I have finally organized Hampton’s new room and Baby Girl’s closet, and I have officially started decorating! I know I know, it’s about time. With all the adorable nursery ideas on Pinterest, I just couldn’t decide what to choose. With less than 9 weeks until she arrives, I still have a lot to do around here. It’s times like these that I am very thankful for Etsy. I was so exited to find these adorable baby blocks from Blockaholic Boutique. They are so adorable and GREAT quality. I am loving these blocks for a baby boy. Are they not the cutest? They are real wood, painted and personalized. They can be customized to your specifications. Since we didn’t know our baby girl’s name until just recently – yes, we FINALLY have a name!! – I ordered the blocks to say “bebe Cantrell” instead!
Since we have waited so late to decide on a name, we are going to wait to announce it until she is born, however, you will get a sneak peek at her initials later this week! I’ve got to keep you guessing! 🙂
I’m so thankful to have finally started decorating her nursery. Luckily, I don’t have much more to do. I have one more shelf to decorate and I need to find something to put over her crib. Other than that, we are all set! I can’t wait to share more details of her nursery with you as I complete it!
Be sure to check out Blockaholic Boutique on Etsy! They have the cutest blocks and nursery decor around!
How far along? 22 1/2 weeks
Baby Size: A papaya! About 8 inches and 1.2 lbs.
Total weight gain: 16 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Absolutely! Although I am still rocking my nike shorts and yoga pants a lot.
Food cravings: Still craving that sugar. Mostly cookies and milk at night.
Feeling: I’m still feeling great! I am loving all this energy I’ve had lately.
Sleep: It’s been a little better. I’m still getting up about 3 times a night to use the bathroom.
Miss Anything? Other than being able to bend and sleep normally, I’m not missing anything.
Movement: All the time! It’s the neatest thing. His kicks are starting to get a little stronger.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! Not anymore!
Looking forward to: putting new carpet in next week, and all of my family coming to visit for the 4th.
Bump: Hasn’t grown any in the last couple of weeks, but I’m thankful for the slow down. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen pictures of my growing belly. Luckily I’m all belly (so far) and haven’t gained any inches any where else! 🙂 Let’s hope it stays that way for a while.
Exercise: Walking 1.5 miles every night and swimming a couple of times a week. It’s getting harder to walk outside because of the heat, but I’m still managing.
Nursery: The nursery is officially painted!!! We are putting new carpet in next week, and then we will go buy the furniture that we picked out a couple of weeks ago! I’m super excited for it to start looking like a real nursery instead of an empty room.
Doctor Visit: Our visit went great! They checked Hampton’s organs on the ultrasound and she said everything was perfect. We have a very healthy boy! My next visit will be my last 4 week appointment and I will have my glucose test done that day. I’m kind of dreading that.
