26 Weeks

Kisses under the mistletoe!

 26 Weeks: Baby O is the size of an English hothouse cucumber.  
He weighs 1 2/3 pounds and is 14 inches long.  This week little man's hearing is improving and he is inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid to help with the development of the lungs.  His little man "bits" are also descending into place- which takes 2-3 days.
How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain? Haven't got on the scale since before we left town for Christmas.  I still was only up 15 pounds we left.  Doubtful that's still true after all the delicious family meals we've had over the last 5 days!
Maternity clothes? Only wearing maternity clothes in pants.
Stretch marks? None right now
Sleep? Some days it's fine and then some days it's crappy.  There have been two different nights where I've woken up at 2:30 and 1:30 a.m. and never have been able to go back to sleep.  Not liking it one bit!
Best moment this week? All of our Christmas celebrations with our families!
Miss anything? Not a thing, we are so fortunate and blessed.
Food cravings? Nothing new this week.
Anything making you queasy/sick? Not a thing
Gender? Little man :)
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? The killer heartburn and some back pain. We've noticed I'm finding it harder to bend over and move as quickly as I'm used to- must be my uterus that is now the size of a basketball haha.
Belly button in or out? In... but it's completely flat now.  I feel like it could pop out any day now.
Wedding rings on or off? On- and so sparkly clean after having them cleaned/inspected over Christmas break :)
Happy or moody? Full of JOY!  I still haven't had a pregnancy meltdown... lucky for the hubby!
Looking forward to? New Year's Eve party with all of our friends!  I may be pregnant but I'm not missing out on my favorite party of the entire year!
Daddy moment?   Hearing Trenton talk/plan out Baby O's Christmas for next year was too cute.  He already said last night that Baby O's first Christmas is only 364 days away and he's already got gift ideas in mind.  I'm sure my boys will be having lots of fun together next Christmas.  Hard to believe we'll have a 9 month old at this time next year :)

Their last Christmas as our only babies.  Believe me they got spoiled beyond belief- a gazillion special treats, new toys, new collars, extra loving, etc.  They were well loved this Christmas!

 The December chalkboard... now to think something up (aka steal from pinterest) a design for the New Year's board!

 Back at home and heading out to Christmas Eve church and celebrations with my family.

 This year's Christmas tree!

This year's Hallmark ornament.

He's not even here yet and he's already getting presents from his parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, etc.  What a loved little man he is :)
