24 Weeks, Vacation, Holiday, Christening and Baby's Room

Shew, yes, I have a giant title because I have so many things to cover.

First of all, I hit 24 weeks tomorrow. Hello 6 months! We had a Dr.'s appointment last week and baby is doing good. He confirmed again it was a girl. He said his % was even higher than 90 this time. So now I feel better about buying her stuff. I have another appointment right before Christmas. I still can't believe I am this far along already.

The belly comments have started coming. I knew they would but I keep hearing them more often these days.

Vacation was good but I spent too much time traveling and no time resting. We painted the nursery, went out of town for a few days, then out of town for Thanksgiving, then I flew to Houston for a christening, then drove home! Shew. Busy, busy, busy. I'm already thinking that Christmas Vacation will be spent AT HOME!
Here is a picture of the finished baby's room. Yes we went with RED and Yes it was ALL MY IDEA. Husband agreed but it wasn't due to the Razorbacks. I've always been a fan of red. More pics to come once we have furniture and bedding.
Here are a few pictures from the christening! I am now the godmother to my nephew Jax. Yes, that is an honor. We aren't Catholic but my sister's husband and family are. I was honored to be asked. You will see me in the red dress. The first picture is my sister Janna and husband holding baby Jax. Then myself and the godfather. Hello, look at my belly!
This is me holding him during the ceremony.
The holiday was just the same as always. Lunch at MIL's. This year we celebrated 2 weeks early at my moms due to baby christening and my parents going out of town. It worked out fine.

Oh and last but not least. On the way home from the christening I got the stomach virus! Booo! It wasn't fun! That was Sunday and today is the first day I've actually eaten something outside of rice or crackers.

I've decided I need a vacation from my vacation.

21 weeks

So I hit 21 weeks yesterday. It is crazy how fast the baby is growing. We were the size of a banana last week and this week...Spaghetti Squash. EEK, I bet she gained several ounces this week. On average our baby weighs around 1 lb now. Crazy. I read something the other day that said go to Walmart and pick up a 1 lb bag of powdered sugar I think it said and that was equivalent to how much the baby currently weighed. Ahhh. I'm trying it tonight when I go grocery shopping.

I took a photo a few weeks ago when I was a little over 19 weeks. It isn't a great photo, but it gives you an idea that I am growing!! This is it:
This weekend I am heading out of town for a big shopping weekend to celebrate a birthday of a friend of mine. I have gone and printed off several coupons for some stores such as Gap, Carters, etc. I'm hoping to do a little clearance shopping for baby girl this summer. Will see how that goes. Momma could use another pair of maternity jeans but other than that I am ok on stuff. May buy a few Christmas presents if I see something.
Mostly I'm just going for fun!!! We plan on eating at Cantina Laredo...YUM! They have the best homemade guacamole EVER! Plus I love the tortilla soup they have.

Only 6 more days of work and I'm off for an entire week. We get the entire week of Thanksgiving here. I love it and can't wait to have my first ENTIRE week off! I love working for a college!
In a few more weeks I'll turn around again and get almost 2 weeks off! Woohoo! Can't wait.

Happy Veterans Day!
