31 Weeks

31 Weeks: Baby O2 is the size of a coconut. 
Our little one weighs 3.3 pounds and is over 16 inches long.  This week he/she is heading into a growth spurt and is plumping out as fat accumulates underneath the skin.

How far along? 31 Weeks
Total weight gain? 20 pounds
Maternity clothes? Just in pants
Stretch marks? None as of now
Sleep? Sleep is no problem at all but I do seem to wake myself up when I'm trying to move from side to side and have to adjust pillows.  The dogs smothering me doesn't help much either!
Best moment this week? How can I pick just one?!  How about a list in no particular order:
1. Hearing Baby O2 at our appointment again this week.  Just perfect and the heartbeat was in the low 140s again.
2. Hosting our first Thanksgiving in our new home with both sides of our families.  We are SO blessed to be able to have everyone under one roof together.
3. Getting almost all of my Christmas shopping done.
4. Best Black Friday purchase= new car for mama!!
5. Getting our outside lights up and doing all the inside Christmas decorating with Cole's help
Miss anything? Having some festive beverages with my sister-in-laws would've been really fun at Thanksgiving :)
Movement? This baby likes to reallllly stretch and push his/her appendages out until it can't be pushed anymore.  I love watching it though.
Food cravings? Any and all Thanksgiving food
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? We shall see in 62ish more days!
Labor Signs? Not a thing this week.
Symptoms? Mouth breathing and I'm hot when I sleep but that's really it for this week.
Belly button in or out? Mixture of out and flat. 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody? Full of JOY! The 5 day Thanksgiving break was full of so much fun.  We have sooooo much to be thankful for.
Looking forward to? Several fun Christmas activities with Cole this week and then maternity/family pics this weekend!  Plus- only 3 more weeks until Christmas break.  Not that I'm counting or anything...
Daddy moment?  My husband's timing is so freaky sometimes.  Weird timing coincidence between pregnancies: 9 weeks before we had Cole we went out and bought our truck, Ke$ha.  And what do you know... 9 weeks before this baby we traded in Ellie Edge for a new ride- Farrah Ford our Expedition. The timing of the purchase was  not done on purpose but is pretty funny.  It was definitely a Black Friday purchase unlike any others we've made before haha.
Big Brother Cole moment: I'm convinced that seeing the excitement of the holidays through Cole's eyes is far better than experiencing it ourselves.  The littlest things make him squeal with excitement.  To see his reaction when he first found "Elfie" his elf was priceless.  Our tree, lights, pictures of Santa, etc. all make him flip and say, "Oooohhh!" or "Petty" for pretty.  He even knows that when we ask what Santa says... he goes, "Ho ho." Usually only two hos which is pretty cute.  However, the biggest moment of Cole's for the past week was when he said, "I love you" to me twice in a row.  I officially don't need a thing for Christmas after that gift from him.  He's done it a couple more times to both of us so I know it's not a fluke.  Gosh, I love that boy.  I can't even fathom how much I'll be able to love TWO of them :)
Don't mind our PJ day look to put up Christmas decorations :)
