The time is flying by… no official picture for Week 29. I did, however, snap this quick photo while we were out of town. Baby is definitely growing!
Time: November 27th- December 3rd
Highlights: James and I traveled to Kansas City over the weekend to attend a wedding. We were able to squeeze in a quick dinner date on the first night we arrived in an area called The Plaza. All the buildings were adorned with festive lights, which created a magical atmosphere. (I later read that they start decorating this area after Labor Day and aren’t finished taking down the lights until March!)
Milestone: The nursery is painted as of this week!
Time: December 11th- 17th
Developmental Milestones: Baby’s eyes are finally open after being fused shut for approximately 18 weeks and her irises are reacting to light.
Cravings: Vanilla ice cream drizzled in caramel and chocolate sauce! Also, clementines… they are so delicious! For better or worse, I discovered Whole Foods’ version of Gingerbread Scones. I absolutely LOVE them… now, if they could just take out those pesky calories!
Highlights: James and I had triple duty this week in terms of preparing for Baby’s arrival– we attended a breastfeeding basics workshop, a Holiday prenatal yoga class, and the last session of our birthing course. What a line-up! I have also started to feel quite a bit of tightening around my abdomen while walking or exercising… small contractions preparing for the big day!
James and I also spent quite a bit of time in the nursery organizing all the wonderful gifts from our baby shower. I am absolutely overwhelmed with everyone’s generosity. More details and photos to come from this special day!
