Another week! Pushing through and getting by as my belly gets bigger! Compliments to my sister for preparing the whiteboard update this week 🙂 Yes, the babies reached 2.5 lbs according to our ultrasound this past week. It’s such a blessing to know they are growing at the same rate and that they are at the expected size for being 29 weeks. During our ultrasound, we are only given an estimate of weight. To get an idea of how long the babies are, I’ve seen varying estimates of length according to charts at the doctor’s office, books, and online references. The babies are anywhere from 11-17 inches. Quite a big window, so I’m not holding my breath for their size. Regardless, I want them to just keep on growing and getting bigger, healthier, and stronger!
Some fun updates from the week…
It is officially summer! My favorite season. I just love being in dresses and flip flops, going to the beach (I am long overdue for visiting one), feeling the sun on my skin… I won’t lie, I can get overheated and irritated by the heat as much as the next person. But for one thing, we have dry heat in this part of the country, unlike the wicked east (that’s where the hubs moved from) that has the added horror of humidity. Second, I would rather find nice, cool A/C and wear shorts and a tank instead of dealing with the wintertime and having to bundle up with 7 layers of clothing and still struggle to get warm!
The hubs gave me a manicure! It’s nice to know I have my own personal salon person who can do my toes and nails! He is actually really good, I might add. I may have found a way to save not just money, but the effort! Now if only he can cut hair…
We celebrated the hubby’s 33rd birthday this week! It was wonderful spending some needed quality time with him on his special day. Then we had friends come to the house for pizza and ice cream. Felt like a replica of my birthday celebration… The cake was super yummy and creative! It was a golf-themed cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
Lastly, check out this halo in the sky!!! Turns out that this phenomenon is technically called a Sundog. (I already asked if a ring around the moon is a mooncat, but we don’t have confirmation on that just yet.) Something about diamond dust… the challenge was taking a picture of it without blinding yourself. I succeeded 🙂
It’s your turn!
