24 Weeks: Cape Zanpa

Another week closer to meeting our girl. We dream about her all the time and love imagining what she will be like. Every slow Saturday morning as Brian and I snuggle up in bed, we talk about how sweet it will be to pull our babe into bed with us and cuddle with her while sipping our morning cups of coffee. We pray for her every single day; that God would give her a sweet, gentle sprit and that she would be carefree, a little bit wild, and filled with joy.

We're pretty sure we've decided on her name, and love calling her that when it's just the two of us. (mostly to make sure we don't get tired of it after saying/hearing it multiple times a day) So far, so good! But you guys will have to wait a bit longer to find that out :) We've bought her crib and a dresser and Brian painted the room a bright, sunny yellow for our sunshine girl. Slowly, but surely, it's all coming together!

I'm feeling great, and am truly thankful that God has granted me a fairly easy (so far!) pregnancy. Besides some mild heartburn/indigestion and a lot of heavy mouth breathing, I'm doing alright! Baby girl moves around all day, which puts this mama at ease. I don't mind it one bit. Even when it wakes me up in the night, I just take a minute to pray for her and then drift back to sleep. Keep on moving, little lady.

As always, thanks to my sweet Mands for the pics! She is SO close to meeting her boy. Can't wait to see him!

22 weeks: Castle in the Sea & 23 Weeks: Yomitan Bluffs

Today is your lucky day! Two weeks of pictures for the price (or click?) of one! I somehow let last week get away from me without posting my 23 week pictures. I feel like babygirl popped out a bit more at 24 weeks and it's fun to look at these pictures next to each other and see the difference from one week to the next! I know I say it often, but I will be so so thankful to have these pictures to look back on one day. 

Not too much new to report. I think I am in the sweet spot of pregnancy. Over the sickness that comes with the first trimester, but not huge enough to be uncomfortable yet! I'm feeling great and sleeping great.

I booked a flight this week for a trip to Charlotte in October and cannot wait! I am so excited to hug my family and friends, and indulge in some American cuisine. And my sweet bestie is marrying the man of her dreams. 
So many things to look forward to!

Week 23:

 I don't think stripes are doing me many favors, but I'm trying to be comfortable and confident in my ever changing body. It will all be worth it when we finally get our hands on that sweet, squishy little girl. 

Happy Wednesday, friends!
