Week 29

It’s hard to believe how fast each week flies by!

I think I’m reaching the nesting phase because suddenly I want to fix up our house just perfectly so the baby will fit right in. Unfortunately it seems that some furniture and other stuff is going to have to go because without some adjustments, we have no room for a baby!

One of the best parts so far in my pregnancy is discovering my baby’s personality. He hates showers — at least when I stand with the water streaming on to my belly. He’ll push and kick until I turn around; then he immediately calms down. He has also discovered the cave that is my belly button and seems to enjoy sticking his foot or hand or something inside of it. I’ll push it out because it’s very uncomfortable, and he’ll wait a second and then sneak it back inside. We repeat this over and over and he seems to think it’s the most hilarious thing.

Can’t wait for this little guy to arrive! Only 10ish more weeks!

    I don't know why I haven't read your blog before, but I recently started because I hear about you all the time through my sister Kayla, because of Janssen.

    I had to comment on this because I know exactly what it's like. It's so funny how they have little personalities even before they are born. My little guy likes to stick something (hand? foot?) out on my right side. I push it back in, and then he sticks it right back where it was as soon as I stop pushing. I swear he thinks it's funny.

    You look adorable.

    you look wonderful Merrick, seriously

  4. You know, Hunter would do the same thing whenever I would take a bath. The warmer the water, the more he moved. And ever since he's been born, he has LOVED taking a tub! Sponge baths, not so much, but regular in the water tubs, definitely! It's so funny, if 7:30 rolls around and he still hasn't taken a bath yet, he'll remind us; getting fussy and crawling towards the tub. It's hilarious! and great because we never have to fight him to take a bath.

    P.S. Keep rocking those skinny jeans…you look great!

  5. you still look so stinkin cute…I love that your belly button is starting to pop. Blake always tells me how gross this is to him…haha. He told me over christmas "cant you just put like tape or something over that". ha. nice. It will fly by even faster and before you know it you will be in labor thinking…oh crap. 🙂
