Now that the grandparents know the baby's going to be a boy the shopping has commenced. It's a good thing we made them wait four months otherwise the nursery would be bursting at the seams. This is from Husband's mom. Not sure if you can you tell, but they're from Michigan:
Isn't it funny how when a baby's on its way the guest room automatically gets renamed "THE NURSERY" even though there isn't even a crib in there yet? We also have four other outfits from my folks, 2 pairs of shoes from Auntie Kryst and a bounty of tineh socks. It's crazy to see such wee clothing in my house.
I recently decided that I'm very white and should probably let the sun hit parts of my body not often seen by daylight lest I blind the person delivering my baby, so I went out and got a swimsuit. Maybe I'll hit the pool and do some self-instructed water aerobics that BFF loves so. My first purchase was mildly hilarious:
Yeah... that got returned. It looks like a dress a little? I was told I could make it more formal for evening wear with pearls and heels. I ended up swapping this in for a two-piece, circus tent-like number which, if you can believe it, is actually way more flattering. The sarcasm on that last sentence is pretty heavy. I thought this was a good baby bump shot and clearly have lost all sense of shame. And to add insult to injury, my face has become an oil well so I have a goatee of pimples. Sexy? You betcha.
I also just recently started our Target registry. This is harder than the wedding registry by far because I have no idea what I need. If you want to leave me your "I can't live without" comments, I'd be grateful.
Here's what babycenter.com has to say about 21 weeks:
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10-1/2 inches long - the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like he's practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to his activity as you get to know him better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.
