28 Week Bumpdate!

28 Weeks is here.... Baby Jude is a kicking-machine!


Size of baby:  The size of an eggplant! About 2.5lbs... :) Growing, Growing!

Symptoms: Hmm... lately it has just been having to go potty a lot. And right away or my whole stomach feels heavy. So bizarre!

Cravings: Nothing too intense. Christmas/New Years and all the sweets were awesome!! I was really into the peanut-butter chocolate chip bars this year. YUM!

Something you Miss: This week.... I really miss nothing... I am just getting SO excited for our son to enter the world. Actually, I did have the thought of wanting a flat stomach again but then I thought that was the dumbest thing to think EVER! (All these new years resolutions....)

Milestones: NURSERY PROGRESS! We have all the furniture, Josh painted (and re-painted because I changed my mind... thanks, honey) and we have the bedding! It is really fun walking into HIS room and dreaming about when he will actually be there! It has also been great to organize our life a bit... his room became the "storage" library/office/etc so it was great to purge over the last week! Also, my daddy helped put together the crib (their gift to us) and it was so fun watching him and Joshy work!

Looking Forward To: MEETING JUDE! We have our 29 week appointment next week and start birthing classes really soon this month. It's all becoming more real!

Prayer for our baby this week:

Dear Lord, As Jude continues to grow and move in my stomach - I am overwhelmed again with this gift you have given us. His arrival is becoming more real and he still has developing to do, too! I pray that his lungs would develop and all the rest of his organs would continue to mature and function in the most healthy way. You have big plans ahead for our son and I am blessed to know that you have his name already memorized and life in the palm of your hands. You are good! Please continue to help Josh and I as we prepare to be his parents... allow us to trust you and give him into your hands completely!

Awww Ria - I LOVED my pregnant belly {even when it got huge like a watermelon} I can't wait to have a pregnant belly again. Jude is going to be one styling little guy - and p.s. shopping for boy clothes is JUST as fun as shopping for girls. :)

I love how you end each bumpdate with a prayer for your son. Such a unique add to the pregnancy updates.

As always you are looking great! You always have the cutest headbands and hair accessories on, too. Do you make them yourself, or where do you get them? I think I need some!
