21 Weeks!


Well I made it to 21 weeks! That is over half-way, which is so exciting. The baby is 10.5 inches this week, which seems crazy! Starting around 20 weeks (maybe a few days after) I started feeling little flutters. Now I'm positive that what I'm feeling are little kicks and flips. It's so cool to feel her movement and know she's alive in there!

This dress I got from the swap we hosted back in September (more on that here). It's from Anthropologie and I can't remember who brought it.. but the empire waist is perfect for my growing belly. So thanks to whoever brought this! I've been wearing it with tights, boot socks and a heavy sweater because it's winter and I live in Akron. <By the way, Jessica wrote an awesome post on how to throw a successful swap party the other day, a must read!>

Now that we've moved and are working on getting settled, I can't wait to start working on the nursery. The room was already painted a nice, light gray when we moved in.. which is perfect. I'd love to paint the ceiling turquoise and then decorate with white furniture and pops of turquoise and coral. A friend from work is letting me borrow her crib and they dropped it off this morning.. I can't wait to get it all set up! Not that I'm getting ahead of myself... (Me? Never.)

Hope you had a great weekend!
