32 Weeks!

OMGsh!!! Can you believe it??? I can't! We have made it to 32 weeks!!! Here is what Brycen is up to this week!

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, he'll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.

Sounds like he is growing to be a pretty big boy!

Yesterday, Christina, Thompson, and I headed down to Palm Desert for a day out. We did a little shopping and what not and had a pretty good time! While we were out, I started feeling some Braxton Hicks contractions. It has been the first time I really noticed them. I guess I am just getting prepared for the real thing.

Speaking of getting prepared...I changed out Thompson's summer clothes to his winter clothes to make room for Brycen's stuff. This took about 3 hours to go through all of the clothes and fold/hang up the baby's stuff. Boy! Do these kids have tons of clothes!!!

Which leads me to another great thing!!! Robert FINALLY got his orders approved! YAY!!!

Next week he will be able to swear in. As of right now, his orders say that he is supposed to go to his school in January. Which is great!!! So that means that around April we will be able to move down to Pendleton! Thank goodness! So that means that I probably won't need a new house while we are still in 29 Palms-- that is unless they call me by December! :)

Oh, I almost forgot. I was thinking about doing one of these neat cube thingys for Brycen's room (when he gets one). For now, it can stay in our room since that is where he will be.

I think that the natural color cubes will look good, I just need 2 of these...

Because I already have 3 of these...

Plus, Target has them on sale this week!!! :)

  1. We just bought the cubicle thing and I love it! Great for the price and it looks really nice too. We got the espresso color. The natural color looks really good with it!
