Bumpdate: 24 Weeks

Does it feel like the weeks are flying by? It totally does. Starting to get a little stressed about all that needs to happen before this baby comes.

How far along? 24 weeks and 3 days. Midwife says I am measuring right on track and still set for a due date of March 22nd.

Total weight gain: 14 pounds

Maternity clothes? Yes. So much yes. I am glad I am pregnant in the winter time...I am loving being able to layer.

Sleep: Generally pretty good. Was fighting a cold so had lots of coughing that was waking me up and I still have to get up at least once to pee.

Best moment this week: Thanksgiving feast! Nothing is better than eating a big Thanksgiving meal in very comfy stretchy maternity leggings.

Miss Anything? I miss not feeling big and clumsy. Went running at the gym and felt like a giant heavy whale.

Movement: This kiddo is constantly moving around...non stop. Kicks, jabs, rolls, hiccups etc.

Food cravings: Sandwiches.

Total Aversions: Nada

Gender: Its a surprise! I bounce back and forth on what I think it is. Right now I am thinking girl.

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Just the usual...oh and vericose veins. Fun!

Belly Button in or out? In

Mood: Chipper! Its the holidays!

Looking forward to: Christmastime! Its our last Christmas with just Molly and a being a family of 3.

Molly: 3 Years + A Princess Party

Last week my little baby girl turned 3 years old. I have no idea how that is even possible but it happened. And there was a party to help celebrate it!

Molly is SUPER into princesses. She has the Disney Princess Magic Clip Dolls and plays with them constantly. We have also been making our way through the Disney classics movies. She was even Belle for Halloween. So, a princess party it was!

We splurged on a "real deal" bounce house this year...finally outgrew the little toddler one. It was a HUGE hit! All the kids loved it and Molly was obsessed. She was very sad when we had to deflate it and return it.

I also scored all of the Disney Princess party decor at Dollar Tree! It was perfect and fit our budget. Then, as always, we added some DIY decorations as well (thanks again Laura!).

For dessert we had cupcakes, princess cookies (which were amazing) and I made Molly her own crown cake. Sugar high!

Lots of fun was had by all. We had a mix of family, Molly's kiddo friends and our good friends. Everbody came to celebrate and love on Molly. Lucky girl!
