Where has the time gone?
My belly has really started to pop this week.
I feel like it grows more and more every day and I love it.
I felt her move for the first time this week and can't get enough of the little flutter!
I never want her to stop but for now the kicking is very sporadic.
For some reason it shocks me every time.
I still can't believe there is a little munchkin growing in there.
But it makes me feel more connected to her with every passing day.
I hate that James can't feel it yet.
He constantly has is hand on my belly trying to feel her movement.
Yesterday I used my first rubber band on my jeans.
I have a feeling it's going to be that and the belly band for the next little bit...
Then on to the maternity jeans.
We got a darling pair of Sperry's from my friend Suz on Monday.
I think it made James really excited to have a little girl.
He put them on his chest and just stared.
Pretty sure this little girl already has her daddy wrapped around her finger.
My hair is getting darker.
At every major change in my life my Mom swore my hair would turn a light brown.
But I think pregnancy might do the trick.
My hairstylist told me to hold out before I start highlighting it.
It's winter AND I am pregnant.
Maybe I will be a brunette soon?
Maybe I will just let it stay dark?
Is this a normal thing?
No major cravings this week.
But I have eaten a lot of fresh artichokes which is strange.
I find myself munching all day and not wanting big meals.
My dreams have progressively gotten more weird and vivid.
This is a Staples girl curse during pregnancy so its to be expected.
This week the baby is about 6.5 inches head to rump and 10 inches total.
She is approaching the 1 pound mark here in the next week.
She is approximately the size of a cantaloupe.
We have one name that we are pretty set on
but I am not quite ready to share it with everyone.
I worry that I may become indecisive.
But for now we feel like it fits her very well.
We will just have to wait and see!
I am already so in love with our little one.
I can only imagine how my obsession is going to grow.
I am trying not to take one day of this whole experience for granted.
Loving every minute.
