Baby Girl: 30 Weeks

Baby is the size of a butternut squash (about 17 inches long)
Weighs about 3 pounds
How far along are you? 30 weeks
Sleep:Pretty good lately, I sleep for about 2 hours stretches then have to roll over because my hips ache but I'm able to get back to sleep easily.
Mood changes: Not really a mood but I'm really tired again...ugh.
Cravings: This last week nothing has sounded good.  I take that back.  Things sound good, I make them and then I don't want to eat them/they make me nauseous.
Other symptoms: Slight swelling in my left foot and my fingers
Movement: This baby is so difficult to feel on the outside.  It's like her back is facing outward so all her kicks are toward my spine.  I feel her kicking but no one else really has.  Husband has felt her once, maybe twice. She likes to kick and sit on my bladder so I constantly feel like I need to go to the bathroom but I get there and nothing comes out. It makes me feel a little stabby to be honest.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Food in general.  Just feeling puke-ish lately.
Have you started to show yet:  For sure!

Do you have a name picked out: No, but we have gotten our list down to 3 names.  I'm sure we'll take those names off the list too.  This baby gets to choose her name when she goes to kindergarten.
Maternity clothes:Yep. I still wear some normal clothes that are stretchy and when I have to I wear normal pants with the belly band but holy moley...maternity clothes are the shiz! I received a bunch of hand me downs from Husband's sister and I am loving having maternity shorts.  I have yet to be able to actually find maternity shorts that don't look like underwear made of jeans with an added stretchy panel.  Who are these pregnant ladies wearing shorty-shorts? I've never seen them.
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out: in
Wedding rings on or off: on but getting tight.
Looking forward to: Being pregnant for 10 or less weeks!

Things I'm worried about:Not feeling her kick as much as I felt Tate kick.
Things I'm loving: Dreams about the baby.  I have a dream at least once a week that I give birth. Most are weird.  One of the most recent dreams was instead of Lamaze or sitting on an exercise ball or whatever to make contractions easier to manage the nurse would guide you through performing a ballet.  The nurse was in full ballet gear (leotard, point shoes, tutu, hair in a tight bun...) and I was in point shoes and a hospital gown.  The nurse did the actual ballet and I was supposed to watch her and do the same movements with my legs.  It was ridiculous but I delivered a huge baby with lots of brown hair.

Year of Tate: Day 206

When the t-rex arms come out a car nap is not far behind.

Year of Tate: Day 205

July 24, 2014

It was well past haircut time.  Tate hates haircuts. I bribed him with a sucker but he still had a difficult time sitting still.  Finally, about half way through, he stopped crying and sort of let me cut it.  I decided to just cut it all one (very short) length...sorry mom.  Hopefully it will grow out quickly and I can trim down the sides and back so it's not all one length anymore.

He looks so much older with the short hair.

Year of Tate: Day 204

July 23, 2014

We're house-sitting for my mom.  Tate has basically lived in this little pool since we got here.  Best. Investment. Ever.

Year of Tate: Day 201

July 20, 2014

Tate discovered he can blow raspberries on the table.  Much better option for this very ticklish mommy.

Year of Tate: Day 200

July 19, 2014

I just want to remember how Tate takes naps lately...on the floor with a million pillows and stuffed animals.

Year of Tate: Day 199

July 18, 2014

We went to the zoo today and finally got into the bird show.  We hadn't been able to get in since last year (admitedly, we haven't tried very hard).

Tate was so stoked.  This is his reaction to the pre-show (a couple birds hanging out on tree limbs)

We will probably try to go to the bird show every time we go to the zoo from now on.

His favorite parts were when the birds would fly right over our heads.

Year of Tate: Day 192

July 11, 2014

Tate is finally brave enough to try out slides without me doing them with him first.

His first try was a little wobbly but he soon figured it all out and was a sliding champion.

Year of Tate: Day 191

July 10, 2014

I tired really hard to get Tate dressed today.  I was only able to convince him to change into different shorts (and that was only because his diaper had leaked all over them).

He's slightly obsessed with his Thomas pajamas. I may implement a "no Thomas pajamas" ruling pretty soon.

He also refused to get any of his own shoes so we could leave the house. I eventually won this fight and he wore his own shoes when we left to run errands.

Year of Tate: Day 190

July 9, 2014

So many things today, can't just pick one.

First, Tate loves q-tips. He sticks them in his nose to get boogers (I did this once when nothing else would get those goopy things out of his nose and now I guess that's what he thinks they're for). He also likes to stick them in his ears and see how long they will stay there.

*Note: Tate is on a "no pictures...EVER!" kick lately. So all my pictures are blurry, don't show his face, and/or he has a grumpy face.

We also got this stroller base that our car seat hooks into from Husband's sister and Tate thinks it's for him. I'm pretty sure he's going to rip a hole in the basket.

And last for today. Tate was eating toast for lunch (small victories for this kiddo who refused to eat just about everything for 3 months straight) when he walked over to me neighing.  I was super confused for a second then realized he thought his toast looked like a horse.

For a 22 month old, I think it's pretty good.

Year of Tate: Day 189

July 8, 2014

Usually, when we talk about the new baby, Tate makes pinching fingers and tries to pinch the baby through my belly. We have a lot to work on.  But today he was hugging and patting my belly softly.  Baby steps. We'll get there.
