. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Weeks 23 & 24

Weeks 23 & 24

I feel like time is starting to go much quicker! I think that comes with this time of the year, which I'm always happy if it would slow down a little.  There is so much to look forward to with the holidays and I want to enjoy it and not feel rushed or too busy!  I've had a nasty cold the last week or so and have probably slept a few hours combined most nights, thanks to coughing and being uncomfortable. I guess it's a good reminder that you can survive on little sleep which should ease my fears a little with adding a newborn, right?  Thankfully Addilyn has been taking good naps, so I've been able to rest most days. I seriously thank God everyday that she naps and pray she keeps it up for awhile!

I had a doctor appointment this month with just the nurse and everything went well.  She let Addilyn hold the doppler to find the baby's heartbeat and she kept saying "We have one of these at home." Although ours takes a while and she is never patient enough to wait to find it.  Next appointment will be the glucose test, which like everyone I think, I'm nervous for and sure hope I don't test positive. 

I know I've said this before but I feel so much bigger this time around.  It makes me a little nervous about how big I'll be by the end! I feel him move all the time and I love it.  I'm pretty sure you can see my belly shake when he's moving all over.  It still amazes me that there is a real baby in my belly! 

I started to get nervous about this baby really being a boy!  It was around this time we went to have a second ultrasound to make sure Addilyn was really a girl.  I feel like with a boy it's usually more accurate, but I can't help but think what if he comes out a she!?  I wish I had another ultrasound, but I think we'll just have to trust the one we had! 

I've made a few things for his nursery the last two weeks.  I started a mobile, sewed a changing pad cover and made a pillow for his room.  I love everything so far and can't wait to keep working on it. A boy's nursery is so much fun to plan!  I've also started a collection of boy clothes and love looking at them.  While I still hold true that there are more cute options for girls, I'm loving buying boy clothes and have found some super cute things!

We took some pictures for Christmas cards this weekend and it was so fun to write out "Chris, Katie, Addilyn and baby boy."  It's crazy to think of us being a family of four come March.  I can't even wait!

My friend was told she was having a boy right up to the end and then surprise...it was a girl! I guess it can happen but doesn't seem to very often. We aren't finding out and although that sometimes drives me crazy, I love the anticipation of it at the same time.
