Pregnancy Highlights: How far along: 23 weeks....the weeks just seem to go faster and faster and it's not even holiday time yet. Size of baby: About the size of a large mango - weighs just over a pound (in our case, probably more) and is more than 11 inches long. Total weight gain: 15 pounds....hoping to get that under control this month. Maternity clothes: I'm mainly wearing maternity pants, but still my regular shirts. Gender: Every time I think, "Oh, it's a girl." Something changes, and I think, "No, it's gotta be a boy." Movement: Lots of movement, especially at night. Sleep: Sleeping well Symptoms: Just my usual - overly tired and crazy dreams What I miss: Nothing really Cravings: Nothing Best moment of the week: Time spent with family What I'm looking forward to: For time to slow down, but I doubt that happens.
On a side note, little man, Cru, has been pacifier free for a day and a half. I am SO PROUD of him! He was getting way too attached to it. I decided it was best just to quit cold turkey instead of letting him have it at nap and bed time. He hasn't asked for it today, although going down for a nap was pretty rough. Keep it up, Bubba!
I married my best friend, Chet, on August 27, 2005. He is my rock and has my heart forever. He works very hard making it possible for me to live my dream of being a stay at home mom to our three beautiful children - Reese, Cru, and Everlee. They fill my heart with joy, yet challenge me daily. I created this blog so our friends and family and even our children could have a glimpse of how we do things The Buchman Way.
