Woot 22 weeks! Sooo this week our little MAN is supposed to be the size of a spaghetti squash, but seeing as how I went Home Goods and Target crazy yesterday, I had no time to get to the store to buy one… So we will say this week our baby boy is the size of a leaf of lettuce.. It was the only thing I could find in our house that was around 11 inches long.
It works.. ha. This week has truly been amazing. Our Gender Reveal party was one of the highlights of my pregnancy so far. To be able to share that moment with our friends and family is simply amazing. I highly recommend doing it if you are thinking about it.
According to babycenter.com, “At 11 inches and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he’s even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you’d be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he’ll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.”
I am in FULL nesting mode, and it not limited to just nesting in the nursery. But we will start there.. I went to target and Home Goods yesterday after work and got an awesome lamp and bins for not only the nursery but the linen closet, a project I plan on tackling this weekend and will share with you all on Monday!
The lamp lets off the perfect amount of light for changing baby diapers and nursing, I am very excited for it. Only a pregnant woman gets excited about lamps, seriously what is wrong with me? Remember the mini bins I got from Target on Monday, well I found their larger counterpart for inside the bookcase!
I love the way it looks I also managed to find perfect looking curtains at target too, I didn’t buy them yet, but I probably will. I am waiting for a swatch to come in from Carousel Designs before I make the plunge. I will say that the curtains at target are only $17 per panel were the carousel designs ones are $60 per panel… eek.
I just don’t understand why baby things are so freaking cute.. it’s beyond me.
Also yesterday I got a pretty sweet package from Little foot and my twinsie Erin
I love it. Well that is all the baby talk I have for you today
