Holy crap you guys, this pregnancy is flying by!  25 weeks already and we are almost down to double digits in days left.  I can't stop dreaming about my tiny boyfriend!!  I'll be totally honest, when I first found out this baby was a boy I felt more shocked than anything.  I was excited and happy, just really really shocked!  Did I mention I felt shocked ;).  Obviously I knew there was a good chance it could be a boy, but I've only ever been a mom to girls!  It's all I've known and honestly all I could really imagine.  The pregnancy was so different and I often thought it might be a boy, but I still just couldn't imagine a baby boy!  As time has passed I have gotten more and more excited.  I'm not shocked anymore and I know I'm going to rock being a boy mom!

I'm at the point now where I can't stop thinking about him and cannot wait told hold him and kiss him!  I constantly pick up his things and stare at them, trying to imagine him using or wearing each item.  I'm also so curious as to who he'll look like, especially because my girls looked so different as babies.  But mostly, I cannot wait to see the girls ooh and ahh over him.  They are both SO excited!  I love hearing the girls talk about him.  Sloan often talks about what it will be like to be the big sister to TWO babies, she loves feeling like a grown up.  I've been trying so hard to really soak in my alone time with the girls.  I know life is going to change so much once baby brother is here and the girls will seem even bigger than they do now.  I want to make sure I make the most of this time, just us three girls.

In terms of feeling prepared, I've never felt less prepared this far along in a pregnancy.  Life has been busy and we just haven't had the time to focus on baby!  Eric has been busy getting his moms house ready to sell, but it should go on the market in the next two weeks so we're nearing the end on that big project.  Once the house is sold, settling her estate should move along much faster.  We're so ready to put all of that behind us and really focus on our little guy.  We have a few other home projects to complete this summer, but our main focus will be P's big girl room and the nursery!  I cannot wait to see his nursery come to life!

Sweet boy, mama loves you SO much and I'm so excited to meet you!

2 5  w e e k  b u m p d a t e

Due date: August 25th, 2017

How far along: 25 weeks!

How many days to go: 107

Gender: BOY!

Baby's name: Eeeeeeeeep baby boy has a name!!  We've decided not to share just yet, but I will say that Eric and I were at odds FOREVER and I am the one that caved.  I let him name our son and he was shocked and then so so excited!

Size of the baby: He is over a foot long and weighs about a pound and a half.  They say he's the size of an acorn squash... which doesn't seem big enough when I look at how big my belly is.

Movement:  He moves like CRAZY and his kicks are so big and aggressive.  So different from the girls!  His kicks actually hurt sometimes which I never ever experienced with either of the girls.  He also likes to push his little back and bum up against my belly.  I'm a little nervous he's going to be a wild child based on his constant movement.  Eric and Sloan have felt his kicks which has been super fun!  

Total weight gain so far: 19 pounds.  This is no surprise as I am ALWAYS hungry.  And always eating.  No shame in my game folks :).

Most recent doctor appointment: I had an appointment at 23 weeks and baby boy's heartbeat was 150 beats per minute.  He was moving like crazy and my doctor said everything looks great.  I have my glucose test at my next appointment, I cannot believe I'm already that far along?!

Belly button in or out: in, but that baby is barely hanging on.  I think it'll pop out soon!

Favorite maternity clothes right now: We've had some warm weather so I've been living in dresses.  Basically if it feels like pajamas, I'll wear it.  I've been loving this white maxi dress and this midi dress.  And of course alllll the leggings (Blanqi leggings are my fave).

Stretch marks: I have a little one above my belly button from when I was pregnant with P... it pretty much faded away, but has recently gotten a little darker and I can see it again.  No new ones though... yet!

Sleep: I still wake up a few times a night to pee, but it's definitely not as bad as it was!  Sleep is much better right now!  

Mood: I feel like I'm a little sassier than usual... like I just don't have the patience to put up with bull shit.  Don't worry, I'm not like a massive B!  I'm just really assertive these days!  

Food cravings: Ice cream/popsicles, berries, mangos, and I stilllllll cannot get enough spicy chicken sandwiches from Chick-fil-a.

Favorite moment this week: Pretty much anytime Eric or Sloan feels baby boy move.  It's just so special seeing their faces light up when they feel him roll or kick.  I also looooove when P says the baby's name, it's beyond adorable.

I'm missing: Booze... Again, no shame in my game folks.

Biggest complaint: Still feeling a lot of pressure "down there" by the end of the day... he's just so low!

Recent baby purchase: My very sweet friend Amie sent me the BEST package ever from Witts End Design.  Amie makes the best burp cloths in the cutest prints, I'm obsessed with this set that she created for me!  I also ordered some swaddles from Max and Moose, they look dreamy soft.

Nursery: Not really much progress so far (I feel so lame!), but his rug just came!  And we are finally making progress on P's big girl room!   Her bed is ordered and Eric is going to paint the room this weekend.  So hopefully it'll start to come together in the next week or so! Once her room is complete it's full speed ahead on the nursery!

Labor signs: none, thank goodness!
