17 weeks is here!
This week our little nugget/jumping bean is the size of an onion, or about 5 inches long!
According to Babycenter.com, “Your baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now, and she’s around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.”
Let’s see this week I’ve been feeling pretty good. We are anxiously awaiting the closet remodel! Probably mostly me so I can start decorating the nursery! Ah I am in FULL nesting mode and I cannot do anything about it.. It is killing me.
I am super excited to order the nursery recliner/glider in a few weeks. That will be our second big nursery purchase.. well third if you count the closet..
I want the nursery ready to go before the chair comes in, and I’m not really sure how long it will take for this chair to come in. Unfortunately it is not sold in stores, so I am basing my purchase on the good reviews it has gotten. Thank you to Patti again for finding this chair for me Oh I have also been looking at getting a wall decal for the nursery… lemmie know what you think….
Those are the two I like right now.. The first one is front runner, but I am still looking and trying to decide if I even want one in there. I think the elephant in the second one is going to be too similar to the wall color. But it’s so stinkin cute. So many choices. All sorts of exciting things.. but mostly I am just waiting… I hate waiting haha.
