Size of Baby Brickner: An heirloom tomato!
Maternity Clothes: My mom got me lots of comfortable maternity clothes for Christmas, pjs & long-sleeve tees, things I desperately needed after squeezing into my old ones for so long but that I just hadn't given into buying yet. It has made such a difference!
Best Moment This Week: This was my second week off work & it was so much fun, we had lots of quality time with just us girls which was so very needed! I know these moments with just Waverly & I are numbered so I am cherishing them so much right now. Also, exciting news, baby girl has a NAME! :) We are going to wait to share until she is born, even with our families & friends, which I know is annoying but we want to keep something a surprise & also, want to meet her first to really make sure it fits! We pretty much had already decided both a boy or a girl name before we even found out what we were having, but still went back & forth a little, so it feels so good to make it official & to call her by name!
On a side note, picking a name early was important to me, since we went through Waverly's entire pregnancy without officially deciding (which stressed my already crazy pregnant self out!). Long story short, we went into labor with two names, one I liked more (Waverly) & one my husband liked more. I really had no idea what was going to happen when she was born, I seriously wondered for months if we wouldn't be able to agree & would have to bring home a nameless baby girl. ;) Then I was in labor for 48 hours (yes, two days), & at the VERY end, my sweet husband looked down at me & said, "honey, name her whatever you want". And that's how we named Waverly Maye! :)
Miss Anything: I have gone from crashing in the bed at night exhausted to some major pregnant lady insomnia. It's at random hours of the night, I think because I can't get comfortable or have so much on my mind! So I miss sleep. A lot.
Movement: Yes, lots, more everyday!
Cravings: We had the best New Years Eve dinner followed by the best New Years dinner, one was salmon & the other steak. Delicious!
Queasy or Sick: The cold seems to finally be behind me, for the most part, so feeling good & excited!
Looking Forward To: Organizing & purging! I am always this way at the beginning of a New Year, it's just multiplied since we are getting ready to add another person to our house! We did LOTS of cleaning out over my break, the nursery is on it's way to being empty enough to start decorating but we definitely still have lots of work to do. It might be an issue though, getting rid of things really makes me happy, I am the polar opposite of the show "Hoarders" & probably throw things away way too easily.
Lastly, the biggest thank you to Firmoo, the cutest online company that sent me over these glasses (similar here) to try! They are non-prescription, I don't usually wear glasses, but always love a fun accessory & was so impressed by these. Firmoo had lots of options & they were great to work with! :)
Hope you had a wonderful first weekend in 2015!
