Only 3 More Months!
though we've obviously known about this for a while, i didn't want to start any projects or buy any baby stuff until we found out the gender, which happened only a couple of weeks ago. since then, i've created a huge to-do list and spent hundreds of dollars on baby gear (including a massive wardrobe and some big ticket items).
seriously, though, my to-do list is scary. maybe i'm overly ambitious...or just plain insane, but i plan to make a lot of the stuff myself, including his crib bedding. anyone who knows me knows that i hate cheesy baby stuff. i don't want trains and teddy bears all over the place, or weird little clown artwork (talk about creepy!) hanging on the walls. nope, i want something that looks like it came out of a magazine. that's where i get a little unrealistic, i'm sure, but it doesn't stop me from trying. i'll definitely have to post my to-do list at some point, along with some how-to's on some of the stuff i'm doing.
anyway, back to baby: he weighs a pound and a half and is about a foot long. his lungs are really developing at this point. he now has eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair, though the pigmentation hasn't happened yet. he's also starting to get crowded in there. his kicks and jabs are definitely noticeable, especially since he is a very active little guy. i've felt him kick through her tiny tummy several times, the first of which was at about 17 weeks. it was so amazing! it felt like a little butterfly fluttering under my fingers. now it feels like he's rolling around and practicing his awesome karate moves. yeah, i'm pretty sure he's going to be an athlete. ;)
