26 & 27 Weeks


Despite my best protesting, life continues to speed up instead of slow down and thus, I’m cramming two weeks into one. Last week Josh’s parents visited us and it was so much fun to have them here. LBJ was in heaven having Nana and Grandpa visit. He keeps going over to one of their pictures since they’ve left and pointing and smiling wanting to look at them.

At week 27 with Jack we picked his first name. With LB2 I feel we are no where close to picking his name. Nothing feels right yet. I may have to see him first!

How far along? 27 weeks, 6 days

Baby is the size of: A bunch of bananas (but how many? 4, 6, 8???!) a Fennec fox, a camping lantern, or a Charlotte Royale cake

Total weight gain:  I don’t know right now, and I enjoy not knowing

Maternity clothes? I’m starting to get sick of them already, which is bad because we’ve got about three more months yet to go.

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping really well for the most part. I’ve had the odd charlie horse here and there, but overall A+ sleep. Thank you Jesus.

Best moment this week: I was out of town a few days this week and missed my boys so much. Jack is basically walking now, just on his own terms. This weekend he kept grabbing our hands wanting to walk everywhere… finally! I’m so ready for it! Also loved this week getting challenged by a simple yet profound vision and just another reminder of how grateful I am to get to work towards a mission I really believe in and with some pretty great people.

Movement: More and more, which is fun. So interesting how different his movements feel than LBJ’s. Maybe he will be more laid back than Jack… his kicks seem to be.

Food cravings:  Lime sparkling water. I don’t remember the other ones, but that is my latest. PDQ has it as a fountain drink and I got one today. Also all “snacky” foods. I’ve been having a hard time eating real meals.

Exercise?  I was out of town for a few days this week, and last week Josh’s mom and dad were here, but I think I still managed three workouts both weeks, so I’m happy with that. Yoga is the name of my workout game still. It’s nice to workout and feel challenged, but stretched and relaxed afterwards.

Miss Anything? Laying on my back, and being able to chase around LBJ a little easier.

Symptoms: Just a few charlie horses and a big belly, as well as making me slow down a bit more.

Mood? So little time, so much to do. Yet, I am so curious and excited to meet LB2 and see what he’s like and who he looks like and learn his personality.

Looking forward to: Josh’s birthday is this Thursday. I am excited to celebrate his life.. it’s a good one.

Until next week,
