- Wednesday marked twenty-two weeks for this little dude.  I can't believe we are over the half-way mark already!  According to the app on my smartphone, he is 11" long!
- I can feel him moving regularly.  He really likes music and almost anytime we listen to something with a beat, I feel regular flailing from him.  A few days ago, Adam went on a Michael Jackson kick and we listened to a few songs and baby was going wild during them!  We think he likes to dance.
- I am finally looking pretty pregnant (see photo above for proof).  It totally depends on what I am wearing, but it is fun to see my body change to make way for a baby!
- I still marvel at how little I am participating in the making of this little human!  I don't have to think about him forming, or strain to create fingernails and eyelashes.  It just happens.  Sure, I need to make sure I eat enough and drink lots of water, but my body is doing all the forming on its own.  It is AMAZING!  And absolutely a miracle that it all forms to make a tiny human.
- I had an unexpected windfall the other day.  I am not fitting into too many of my clothes these days, but don't really want to go out and buy a ton of maternity clothes, and a friend sent me a message that the teenage girls from church had just finished a clothing swap activity and that there were tons of things left over!  Hallelujah!  I now have quite a few darling pieces to wear throughout pregnancy and beyond! This addition to my closet will make for a much cuter pregnancy :)
- December really can't come quickly enough!  I am SO excited for this baby to join our lives!

Happy Friday!

    1. It did sort of happen all of the sudden! I kept trying to look pregnant (because I was feeling pregnant) and then my tummy just popped out and I look pregnant without even trying :)
