We are 26 weeks pregnant today!!! [1.30.2013]
It's actually pretty nice out here (It was like 67 degrees yesterday... in January!) So I thought I'd pair a little dress with my jeans today :) You don't get this option often in the winter time, so I took advantage of it, haha!
According to 'The Bump,' Quinn is about the size of a head of lettuce this week. They estimate she is about 13.6-14.8" long and about 1.5-2.2lbs. Crazy! She is SO SO active anymore. I am getting hard kicks and punches to the rib cage! LOL! I wanna say she might be head down already, but I could be wrong.. she shifts a lot! Who knows! :)
I had a CRAZY craving for salt and vinegar chips this week. I tried to resist, but gave in on Monday night. They were phenomenal. Not going to lie, haha!
We have about 77-98 days (11-14 weeks) left til we get to meet her! It's going quick!
How's 26 weeks going?
I am still feeling pretty good. Motivation is leaving me quickly anymore, but I am still trying to get things done, haha! My lower back/butt area is hurting a lot more... might be because I'm starting to 'waddle' haha! Have you ever heard the quote, 'Walk like you've got three men behind you??' I feel like I'm walking like I've got three penguins behind me and I'm trying to convince them I'm one of them! HAHA! :) Oh well, you gotta love it!
We are going to try extremely hard to get stuff done for her this week. I told Ethan I just feel like time is fleeting so quickly. March is going to be a super busy month with Tayler's 2nd birthday party and all of that jazz, so I would LOVE to get most of the stuff done this week and in the month of February. We will see how it goes :) I'll update next week whether we actually got things done or not, haha!

Sleep? It has been better this week.. but now we are struggling with Tayler wanting to actually sleep at night LOL so that's always fun, haha!
Best Moment of This Week: Feeling Quinn a lot more and hearing Tayler sing her favorite song for the first time! She sang 'Baby Beluga!' LOVED it!
