I can’t believe that the school year is over! Our little girl is done with pre-school and will start pre-k in the fall (she’s early on this – but we decided a “hold back” at 4.5 was more appropriate than at 2.5 – she can understand more and be occupied easier). I’m so thankful for the pinterest fad of taking photos at the beginning and end of the school year, because a) it’s nice to hold onto those memories and b) you can see just how much change happens in a short period of time at this age.
She’s now (at least I think) about 30 lbs and just over 36 inches tall. She’s wearing a 3T and size 7/7.5 shoes now and is able to write her name and spell it for us! She can also sing her ABC’s in Spanish and has started speaking Spanish with our bilingual next-door neighbors (or, I should say she responds to what they ask her). She loves her friends, teachers, and going to school. She can use scissors, is getting closer to coloring in the lines, and is SO proud to become a big sister in the next month/two months.
Speaking of baby sister, she’s growing so much, and so am I!
How far along? 32 weeks
Baby size: A jicama, and about 17 inches in length and 3.75 lbs
Weight gain: Still about 12 lbs.
Workouts: I’ve been wearing my Fitbit and as long as the weather cooperates, I try to take a daily walk, whether it’s at work or at home.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely.
Stretch Marks: None
Sleep: Having a hard time falling asleep, and I’m getting up with the birds. But it’s ok – it makes mornings much more pleasant because I have my time to adjust and mentally prepare for the day.
Gender: Sweet baby girl
Movement: All the time. Hiccups are more frequent, but not like they were with T.
Labor signs: BH are “more frequent” but nothing nearly relating to timable or painful.
What I miss: Carb. ALL. THE. CARBS.
Nursery: I’ve started the curtains and they should be done (I hope) within the next week. Crib skirt was made by my awesome friend Rachel with ModFox, and I was successful with my attempt at a crib sheet. I have the real fabric laying across our ironing board ready to go, but the curtains are my priority right now. I also have the vinyl triangles cut out, I just need to put them up. Oh! We also made a trip to Ikea on Monday and bought some shelves for the closet to help with organization and I bought some boxes for the dresser drawers in an attempt to keep things organized. I cut off all the tags of the clothes we bought in Vegas to get those ready to be washed.
Belly button, in or out: In, but flat
Wedding rings, on or off: On
Mood: I’ve actually been pretty good the past couple of weeks. Getting up earlier has really helped with that.
Best moment this week: Just seeing the sun again! It’s been a rainy, cold May here in CO, which is not normal. I also was able to have my sewing lesson that I was gifted for Mother’s Day and that was really fun!
Looking forward to: 32 week appointment this afternoon, and my family coming in for the week! A lot of progress on nursery organization and washing will happen this week – I might even jump the gun and pack the hospital bags!
