{Baby Black: Week 20}


It's Justin's birthday today!!!!
Happy Birthday to the best husband and daddy around! I could not possible love you more.
 You are one of a kind Justin - we are so lucky you are ours and we hope you know that every single day! Your girls love you very much. We are excited to celebrate with you tonight!

Feeling: Great. Can't complain one bit. Sleep still isn't my friend, apparently I have the smallest bladder ever. But I have started wearing a sleep mask (even though J says goodnight to the queen when I wear it!) and I think it helps me sleep better...

Baby Black: A white, creamy substance called Vernix caseosa protects her skin from it's aqueous environment. She is swallowing more these days. And also producing neconium now which is a by-product of digestion.

Icky & Loving: Nothing to report.

Justin update: He is old. :) Just kidding babe. The birthday boy is great!

What I'm wearing: Whatever is comfortable. More dresses now and I love maternity jeans/capris/shorts. I may never switch back. ha ha

Speaking of wearing... I went through a period when Justin and I were dating and I lived at home (so had only car payments to worry about - thanks Mom and Dad!) where was I was obsessed with buying baby clothes - if I saw something adorable & on sale I would buy it for 'future use'. Well on Thursday night I went through the bins I had saved for our future babes (the same bins that over the years I may have cursed thinking I may not get to use the darn stuff!) and apparently I hoped I would have a girl one day and would pass on my love for shoes. :)
I also have about 20 firefighter shirts, onesies and PJs cause when Justin and I were first dating he started firefighting part time and did so for about 4 years. oups. But I figure a girl can wear them too just throw a cute skirt, tights and a bow. :)

Workouts: 5 workouts plus squat and plank challenge each day. Planks seem really hard right now?!
I'm looking forward to my first prenatal yoga class tomorrow night.
(not much change)
What I'm looking forward to: May long weekend at the lake!!

Best moment of the week: Being halfway!! 20 weeks. Holy moly. I remember being excited when I was 7 weeks!!
The ultrasound morning was still one of the best moments EVER. And buying a stroller was exciting!

Hooray for being half way through and happy birthday to Justin!! You look adorable and I love that your tummy is starting to 'pop' a bit. I sleep with a sleep mask EVERY night and would be lost without it... so you might find it habit forming!

And be careful with planks! It seems like the further you get in pregnancy, you're supposed to avoid planks!

AWE happy birthday to the hubby, look how small cruz in that one picture. too cute!

Awe and I am secretly doing the same thing. I scored a crib for $5 last year at a rummage sale. and slowing adding the baby toys (which come in handy with friends with little ones recently) ;)

Thankfully the husband isn't a snooper and doesn't even look.

You're lookin great!! I love the shoes....too funny! Do you have a Snoogle?? I swear that body pillow is the reason why I got such good sleep. I had no probs til the last month when I was a whale. Enjoy your yoga--it was one of my favorite things to do while pregnant. XO
