Week 20: Banana


Warning - randomness ahead.




Baby C is approx 10 ½ inches from head to heel (the length of a banana). ~ Kicks make me happy.  It's by far my favorite thing about pregnancy. This week kicks were felt by Daddy C and this makes me feel over the moon.  ~ Tailbone pain has started, mostly while at work.  I’ve been trying different sitting positions, a pillow and exercise ball to help ease the pressure. ~ We have looked into birthing classes and gonna book one soon.  I hope they don't hassle us when the husband leaves the room for the birthing video.  I'm all for him being prepared but he doesn't need to see that... 




 I thought our female dog, Daisy, was being sweet to the baby this week.  She laid on my belly and looked up at me with her beautiful brown eyes.  To my dismay she only did this because the belly was in the way of getting the stick from my just eaten ice cream bar.  I have a feeling she isn’t going to love the new addition to our family.  She thinks she is #1.  Luckily we have Duke - the sweetest male dog ever.  ~ I went bowling with my ladies.  Having a baby in my belly doesn’t make me any better at bowling but at least I beat my initial score in our last game.  Haha. ~ The hubby's car is out of commission.  We are praying whatever is wrong is an easy fix or we will be car shopping ASAP.  We've been sharing a car since Friday and no way our schedules will allow for this long. ~ His computer fell of the table and the screen cracked.  We will be finding a solution to this soon as well. ~ On a good note, we were told by a random stranger at Kohl's that we were the cutest couple.  It made me blush.




Baby C got a present ~ a little tag blanket and Rubber Ducky that tells you if the bath water is too hot.  Thanks Jeni :)



Thanks for the comments following last week’s blog.  You guys are the greatest.  And those of you that read and do not comment, I appreciate your kind words, emails, texts, etc.  We are officially halfway through this journey and your continued love and support has made this an even more enjoyable experience.  The simple memories being created with each post will only continue…my cup runneth over. 

Love ~ CC

Erik VERY SURPRISINGLY watched all the videos for our birthing class for gavyn! The videos weren't that bad, but there were optional videos that the instructor showed before one class that was a montage of squatting births using the bar. Eeeeerrrrr..... AND Erik watched that one too!

Have the hubby give it a shot.

Halfway to meeting the newest love of your life! Halfway to falling completely in love with your hubby all over again watching him be a Daddy! Halfway to the most amazing exerience ever!!

Might I also mention that a random stranger asked to take your photo today in the ice cream shop AND that a random biker dude said you should be on a magazine cover when we took that last shot. See--you are still ridiculously beautiful.

Love you two. :)

(And I told you the shoes would look awesome. Hee hee)

@Ashley - it's actually going by pretty fast, maybe too fast. I am loving being pregnant and a wise friend told me not to rush it! I am going to enjoy every minute.

@Dan - no pics with Lee just yet. Maybe in some maternity photos. No news on the Jeep but you are welcome to fix my door handle anytime :)

@Jamie - you reminded me I want to change the song on the music player...

The rest of your gals - love you to pieces!!
