baby update.

here's what's new with baby c and me.


....baby c is now 25 weeks old, about 2lbs and 14" long...


....my belly seems to be getting bigger and bigger by the minute...
my doctor told me to expect to gain about a pound a week from here on out. if that's accurate, i am on track to gain about 25lbs overall....

{here's my most recent 24 week belly pic...i wore horizontal stripes to emphasize the belly}


....the baby room is starting to take shape....

chris got all 10 coats...yes, 10 coats...of yellow paint finished on the crib this weekend. this crib turned out to be a nightmare project, but i won't bore you with the details. now it's assembled, and ready for baby c's arrival.

...baby c has started to amass quite the shoe collection....

i think our friends and family know about my shoe collection, and wanted to start our baby off on the right foot (sorry that was a bad joke).

....we started birthing classes tonight...

we have chosen to do a 12 week "before and after birth" course, that focuses on a number of things we have little to no knowledge in. chris knows my tendency is to freak out when i don't know what is going on with my body, and this class leaves no room for imagination.

other than that, i have been feeling great. no complaints. i just can't wait to meet this little guy.

happy tuesday!

oh, and get ready for day one of my 18 days of christmas crafting tutorials tomorrow.
