Chalkboard bumpdates. I think this is the definition of ain’t nobody got time for that. Pretty much every other aspect of working/blogging is doable for me except making chalkboards, as there are four tiny hands that just love to erase whatever I have made or add their own artwork to it. Not to mention, time. is. flying. I cannot believe next month is already the end of my pregnancy! I’m not even going to lie, I have really enjoyed being pregnant this time & will miss my baby bump tremendously.
Moving right along, let’s title this chalkboard “lollipops for everyone if you all just give me two minutes to take this picture.”
How far along: 31 weeks (7 month photo taken at the end of April, closer to 30 weeks)
Weight gain: 18+ lbs.
Maternity clothes: Wearing one of my favorite dresses EVER, this Isabella Oliver halter dress is soooo comfortable, I have been wearing it non stop! I love the color & it leaves plenty of room for my belly to grow over the next two months! I have almost fully given up on regular clothes & have really been embracing maternity style this pregnancy, which I am sure is one of the reasons it has been so much more enjoyable!
Sleep: Still sleeping great, minus Eloise continuing to wake up once or twice a night. Will it ever end? I am convinced she will still be waking up just as often as the newborn come July.
Best moment this month: Celebrating Eloise’s first birthday & my 29th birthday! Embracing the mom van & getting started on the baby’s nursery. We are moving right along y’all! 🙂
Worst moment this month: Aside from the scary car wreck, it has been a pretty great month!
Miss anything: I have definitely been pouting about not being able to drink a margarita on Cinco de Mayo or a large pour of wine when the kids are driving me bonkers. But mostly, missing being able to do a lot of stuff with the girls & keep up all day with their endless energy. They’ll both be shocked one day when I can be the one playing airplane or giving them horsey rides around the house again!
Movement: Big giant alien movements that everyone can see from the outside. Harper just loves it & says “da baby kicked me wite in da hand!”
Cravings: Watermelon, fish tacos, & chocolate chip frozen eggo waffles. And yes, I would definitely eat them all together.
Queasy or sick: Feeling good, minus some super excessive heartburn. Bleh!
Looking forward to: Summer! We have so many fun things planned & I can’t wait to do them all as a new family of FIVE. (also picking a name, because we haven’t even come close to doing that yet.) We can’t wait to meet you baby girl!!!
And because two is better than one, here is my last month’s chalkboard that I missed posting. I hope you forgive me! 🙂 XO
