26 Weeks

The baby weights almost 2 pounds now and she is about 14 inches long. The baby has about 5 to 6 more pounds to gain before she is done cooking. But her little legs are getting so strong. She has been in the same position for 3 days now and her little feet are now located on my left side under my ribs. She has daily been practicing her dance skills. Even Matt can feel her tiny feet dancing on my side.
The sleepless nights have begun too. She dances all night long and I have to sit up and change positions every couple of hours... Add that to the bathroom trips and I think I am sleeping about 2 straight hours at a time. I guess she is just getting us ready for the nights to come. We also bought a chandelier and put it in her nursery. It is fit for a princess and looks precious. Last week we finished registering at Target and Babies R Us and we are excited to get some baby stuff for Christmas. Matt and I are also excited to go to New York in about three weeks. I love the holidays and this year is even more exciting. More info to come later!

24 Weeks

With her bedding and a new dresser in her nursery, the room is starting to look like a baby will live there soon. Her bedding looks precious in the crib and I cannot wait to begin to decorate her nursery. Gracie is still pretty confused about what is going on in that room. She is not allowed to come in unless she is invited. When we do invite her in, she is sniffing all over the place. Last week Matt and I found a video of a newborn crying on YouTube and played it for her. Poor girl was so confused. Soon I don't think the crying will phase her at all.
Basketball starts today and before you know it the holidays will be here. The months have just been flying by. I cannot believe she will be here in 4 months. Basketball and the holidays will keep me busy and distracted. Matt and I will be traveling on our "babymoon" (yes it is a real word) to NYC right before Christmas to celebrate our last trip without baby. My mom and Grandma will be coming with us too. We plan to stop by to see Dr. Barron (my hand doctor) and of course, hit up Chinatown. Matt has no idea what he is in for!

New Sonogram Pics & Baby Registration

Here's the latest sonogram pictures. These were taken at 20 weeks. Everything is going perfect with the baby girl and she has become very active lately! We spent the weekend registering for the baby. You can find our registry online at Target & Babies R Us. We are just getting started, so there will be plenty more to add as time goes on. Who knew you would need so much stuff?!
