Tiny Dancer is Twenty-two weeks!
Oh my God! Am I really this big with 3.5 months to go! Where will she fit? This shot is 22 weeks. In the last couple of weeks, strangers have noticed the bump and made comments. None have dared to touch the belly. Maybe they value their safety!
A clerk at a store asked when I was due- just curious for the response, I said, "Well, what do you think?". She replied, "any day now?". Good Lord!
After careful consideration, we bought the "inspiration bedding" instead of attempting to recreate it. Instead, the women of my family have decided to make accessories and decor. The bedding is pictured above because I couldn't figure out how to move it. I love the simple elegance. I believe that I will accessorize with pops of red- though plum is still in consideration
Michael and I completed our registries at Target and Babies R Us. We wanted to be done before Christmas rush and the floods of post Christmas returns. If you are interested in seeing our furniture, it is on JC Penney (www.jcp.com) as a registry. I did it that way so out families could quickly and easily find it- without wading through the site and writing on stick notes. Since it is still there, now everyone can see it- supposing there is any chance that anyone else is as curious as I am! I love to see how people decorate!
The holiday went fast. I experimented with bow making and organized Claire's room. My mom saved a ton of stuff I wore (and even some stuff she wore) as a baby and it is all in Claire's closet. She also brought a table and chair set I had as a little girl. It is perfect in her room. The crib is due in the next couple of weeks, the bedding in 2-3 weeks. When things start coming together, I will gleefully post pictures, so everyone can see everything.
I can definitely feel Claire move now. She has become quite strong. I think we are close to Michael being able to feel her move- which I am eager for!
All doctor reports still positive and healthy!
