Happy 4th of July, friends! We had a nice staycation in Chicago watching the fireworks from our rooftop, going to ribfest, and having a BBQ with my family out in the burbs.
I realized I never posted the picture of our announcement. Of course Lyla had to make an appearance!
She continues to be my little sidekick as I change out the weekly chalkboard.
This week also marks 14 weeks. We are on our way into the 2nd Trimester!
How Far Along? 14 weeks
Size of Baby: Lemon
Weight Gain: 5 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Ordered my first pair of maternity shorts that should arrive later this week.
Nursery: I have an idea of the general theme, and Tom is on board with it! More details coming soon 🙂
Symptoms: Much more energy! I’ve been able to stay up until 10:00/11:00 some nights!
Sleep: No longer need to get up in the middle of the night for potty breaks. Still waking up a few times a night to adjust sleeping position.
Cravings: Salty snacks–goldfish crackers and pretzels.
What I Miss: Fitting in to some of my cute Summer clothes. This was the first week where I felt like I had to change at least 5 times before going out, because I couldn’t find anything that I was comfortable wearing.
Best Moment This Week: Signing a contract for a new teaching job next year. More info on this coming soon!
Looking Forward To: Our next ultrasound when Baby Walsh will look like a baby and no longer a blob!
