Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
This week I'm feeling big and winded. Bras, hills, and anything I have to pick up off the floor are my enemies. Since I don't plan on giving up ice cream anytime soon, I'm still forcing myself to walk or hike, either outdoors or on the treadmill. Joe and I managed to take 35,000 steps over the weekend. I made up for it by sitting around, avoiding the heat as much as possible on Monday ;)
The beginning stages of nesting are definitely setting in. Ez's changing table wasn't holding up too well after two moves, and with them sharing a room it made more sense spatially to get a dresser and put a changing pad on top. We went with this one from IKEA. We've also been on the hunt for a new bed for Ez. So far we're still deciding on whether we want to bother with a toddler bed, or go straight for a twin-sized or even a bunk bed. I'm leaning more toward one of the latter options, as long as I don't have to assemble it.
Here's Ez helping build his baby bro's dresser:
Gotta love his enthusiasm!
Cravings are still more of the same: salads, lemonade, and ice cream, which probably has a lot to do with the heat. Also See's chocolate chip eggs are back and I've already gotten my hands on them. Love those things!
Baby is moving all kinds these days, yet somehow Joe still hasn't felt a really good kick. He seems to have a calming effect on baby, while Ez is pretty good at getting his bro riled up. Signs of things to come, I'm sure. Joe has seen my belly move though. It's kinda weird that we're at that stage already. I actually had a dream that I could see an imprint of the baby's face through my belly, and I kept trying to show Joe but he never looked up in time. Kinda hoping baby doesn't actually do that cause it was a little creepy. Like he was trying to gnaw his way out of my belly.
Here's me at 25 weeks with Ez vs. now:
