There were a bunch of little moments of baby happiness this week that deserve documentation.
I'm feeling this little girl move around more and more. In fact, right before falling asleep on New Year's Eve, I had my hand on my tum and felt the first little punch/kick from the outside. It was a great way to start the new year.
I just love being able to feel her. It's like a secret, just between us two. Sometimes, I'll let Chas in on the fun when he's home. But otherwise, it's just me and her.
I finally broke down and bought some maternity clothes.
I haven't wanted to spend money on clothes that I know I'll just grow out of very soon, but, at the same time, wearing the only pair of maternity jeans (hand-me-downs from my sis) every single day was kinda getting annoying.
My mom came with me and, turns out, the shopping angels were with us, too. We scored some awesome dresses at H&M and Motherhood. All were on sale! And we were able to leave the mall in just under two hours! Happy day.
While at H&M, I died over their baby girl clothes.
And it's good to know that they're still marking things down to $3. Love that.
One of my happiest moments this week. Looking through baby girl jammies and being able to actually buy some for my baby girl! The only thing I can compare it to in my mind is going to a pet store and being told you can look at all the puppies, pick your favorite, and then take it home with you that same day.
(Really, though. That exact scenario comparison may have run through my mind while deciding which jammies I should get for little cryings.)
And, last night, we brought home a changing table.
(For, might I add, a killer deal on KSL.)
We cleaned up her room a bit, vacuumed the rug, and got the changing table in position. Then we imagined where the crib will go and a glider rocker. We also both stood over the changing table and pretended we were changing her diaper.
You know, just your average over-the-top excitement/anticipatory role playing.
And then I had another quite restless night attempting to not sleep on my back.
I don't mind.
