However, I DO have belly pictures!
These were taken about a week and a half ago, about midway through week 22:
|Baby was the size of a papaya that week.|
|Unrelated, but that was the week I stopped wearing my hair curly. I had just dyed it and the weather's been less humid lately, so it stopped curling on its own, and straightening it is the path of least resistance again. I am lazy. ;-)|
|Contemplating how it's possible something papaya-sized fits in my belly! And probably worrying about watermelon week.|
Although my belly has grown quite a bit, I'm still not filling out much of the maternity clothes I got, so I'm still mostly in my regular clothing for the time being, fitting into my jeans and dress pants with the help of Target's BeBand. Seriously, best $16.99 I've ever spent!
And I just have to share this photo of Elvis hugging my belly. It's a bit blurry, since I took it on my iPhone in the dark at an awkward angle, but it's too cute not to show you guys:
In other exciting baby-related news, my mom pinned together a prototype of the curtains for the nursery. She stopped by over the weekend to check the length and width:
Please excuse the blue curtains that we lazily pushed to the side. It just didn't seem worth it to take them down all the way until the new curtains are done!
Anyway, the print on the fabric was quite a bit larger than I'd expected, but now that I've seen it in curtain form and in the room, I actually think I like it better than if it was too much smaller. An unexpected bonus of the print being so big is that we will be able to do a custom-made mobile by cutting out some of the birds from the excess fabric. This works out well, because after searching high and low, I couldn't find a single mobile that I liked!
Next weekend's project: clean out the laundry room and hall closet so I can finally start clearing the non-nursery things out of the room!
