{28 weeks}

Wow, I didn't realize that I have missed posting three belly shots.   I missed taking photos of weeks 24 and 27 altogether, but here are the last three photos that I never got posted...things have been a little crazy here.

We've had a long bout of sickness in our house -- passing it between ourselves...fun, fun.   I think we are finally on the mend.  As far as the pregnancy goes, I'm feeling great aside from some misalignment pain I've been having with all the shifting going on inside my body.  I've been going to the chiropractor the last couple week and it has helped so much.  It's definitely getting harder to bend over and in general I'm starting to feel more uncomfortable.  But that said, I still feel like I am doing so much better than I was when I was pregnant with Kaydence.   Baby boy has been moving around really well.  He always likes to wake up when I go to bed at night.  I already see this is going to be a big problem after he is born. ;-) Kaydence didn't have much of a problem getting her days and nights straightened out after she was born, but we'll see with this one.

I'm disappointed with myself on how little I've been keeping track of things with this pregnancy (i.e., belly pics, appointment stats, and just general journaling).  The other day, someone asked me how far along I was and I had to sit and think about it.  That sort of stuff came second nature to me the first time around.   I constantly had my head buried in some sort of pregnancy book or forum when I was pregnant with Kaydence.  But this time around, I'm majorly slacking on keeping up with what is going on inside my body.  I know they say that is common, but I wish I would have done a better job of keeping track of things so that I could look back on it for the next pregnancy.   I love that I wrote everything down with Kaydence because there have been many times in the last several months where I've looked back at my blog to see what I was feeling around however many weeks.  Oh well, it is what it is I suppose.  I guess it's a good thing this is a boy because maybe he won't care about that kind of stuff like a girl would someday.

I'm starting to think about the nursery a bit.   I sort of have an idea of what I want to do in there, but I haven't really pulled everything together yet.   I would like to get it all done sooner rather than later though, just to get it off my mind.   I'm already feeling so overwhelmed with everything I want to accomplish around the house before this little man gets here.   I'm worried that if I don't get on it soon, it will never get done because I'll be too big and miserable to do it.   Sigh.

Other than clothing, we really don't need a whole lot for this little guy, since most of our baby equipment is gender neutral.  The one thing we did need though was a double stroller.   I knew which one I wanted, but we were waiting for a good deal before purchasing it.  It just so happened that one of our local baby supply stores is going out of business and they were selling it for 30% off.  This particular stroller doesn't really ever go on sale, so we took advantage of the discount and went ahead and bought it.  We bought the Baby Jogger City Select (with second seat).  I'm really excited to be able to use it.   I love the versatility of it and we'll be able to get lots of use out of it since we can use it as a single stroller or a double.  We got the ruby color, which Teirney was excited about since it looks like Badger red. ;-)

Here are some photos of it and also a demo video at the bottom.

These are all the different seat positions you can use.



I'm starting to get anxious and excited to meet our little man.  So I have found myself daydreaming about what he is going to look like...it's fun to think about.  So last night,  I pulled up Kaydence's 20 week ultrasound pictures and compared them to her baby brother's.  I was amazed by the resemblance!  Of course, who knows what he will really look like, but in these photos he looks like a boy version of Kaydence.  You're probably thinking "well, what did you expect???"  lol  But I thought it was fun to compare, so in case you're interested, here are some side-by-sides.
