Week 24: Corn

This week Baby C is approximately 12 inches long and I can vouch for that.  Besides the growing bump, Cash (nickname given by H3) is moving limbs.  I got to watch in awe of this the other night.  Sadly the hubby was not home to witness.  Even if the movements were more alien like, I know he would have been thrilled.  He has been feeling movements for weeks now and each time he gives a "ooo" when he feels one.  It is so cute and does not get old.

I'm not sure if it is the weather or growing a human, but this week I have been tired and a bit blah.  I've had a few more naps than normal, been stressed a few days because of work, feeling guilty for missing the gym, not getting enough housework done, and not eating as healthy as I should (I had Cracker Barrel twice this weekend)  Thanks to the hubs we did plant new things in the flower bed and this made me feel more accomplished even if I didn't do anything.  

Now if it could please warm back up so we could plant the garden...

I realized this week, that in 16 weeks (give or take) our little one will be here.  I have to admit this scares the crap out of me and makes me excited at the same time.  I'm feeling anxious over this fact.  Being pregnant has been great and I know I have a ways to go, but time has been flying and soon I will be holding a little person that we created.  I will have to learn how to be a mom.  I do not take that good of care of on Earth I am going to be able to do this?  

Hopefully I am capable enough not to totally screw it up.

I've given myself a goal to get the nursery set up by the beginning of June.  We have all of our ideas mapped out and now we just need to execute them.  The hubs has been working so hard on it and I cannot wait to reveal the finished product.  If we can make the goal, then the rest of the summer will be just getting the room organized with essentials/gifts from baby showers and just waiting the arrival of Baby Cash.  

I'm envisioning waiting many a day laying in the pool :) haha

Thanks for reading.

You already are a mom! You were one the moment that sweet baby was made and you are doing a pretty damn good job so far. (And the nursery is going to be pretty fabulous)

Bring on the pool! I can't wait to watch your belly move in waves as Cash gets bigger. I can't wait to hold and snuggle him/her!! (But not for several more months please)

You are already a GREAT mom!!! You do take wonderful care of yourself but you really don't give yourself enough credit! Sometimes taking care of yourself is taking extra naps...and not feeling guilty for it.
Sorry I drug you to Cracker Barrel again today :), but I was so happy to see you and Cash.
I hope feeling that precious baby move lifts your spirits.

Sending you lots of love.

I love the setting for this shoot! More intimate. Also, I love your hair long. I haven't seen it that long since 8th grade, maybe??

I have known you for quite some time; though, we still need to catch up, and I can say for certain that you are going to be (and already seem to be) a fantastic, loving, caring, insanely-crazy- for-your-baby Mamma.

So glad for you. And Lee. And Matthew. And Cheryl. And Brooke. This little one will surely make the world brighter, as you always have.

Love and miss you.

Phoebe said... this shoot my be my new favorite! For the longest time it was lemon, then apple and then artichoke but oh wow oh wow! I have not doubt you are and will be the best mom ever! You give great advice, wonderful hugs and sweet kisses! Tada! Mommy! It's hard to believe that there are only 16 more weeks! Time has flown by! If there is anything I can do to help with the nursery, let me know! I'm there!
Cash is a great nickname for Baby C! I love it! Love you!
