24 weeks

how far along? 24 weeks 1 day

total weight gain: i havent stepped on the scale in like 3 weeks. 
babys size/development this week: over a foot long (craaaazy), over a pound (almost a pound and a half), says its the size of an ear of corn
maternity clothes: got new jeans at gap... didnt care that the price tag read $69.95 (although really? that seems pricey) was going to buy them anyway cuz i liked the way they felt and looked... rang up at $35. win.
sleep: ive slept great this week, minus ty stealing all the covers. and ive been watching waaaay too much sons of anarchy... such.weird.dreams!
miss anything? not really anything new
movement? all the time, love it.
food cravings? ive been having a bowl of cracklin oat bran every day. that stuffs expensive but ill buy it, i love it.
daddy is feeling: (love adding this... from tiffany) daddy LOVES my irritability and my ability to cry over nothing. hes learned that i need the kitchen towels to be folded and put back after use, he really enjoys being reminded to clean the cat box... hehe. hes still unsure whether he thinks its a boy or girl, but is enjoying feeling the kicks every night.
anything making you queasy or sick? nope
best moment of the week: my dad came to visit, got to see my brothers directing debut, visited with my favorite nephew (who showed me all about how to use the becco baby carrier!), and who doesnt love jalapenos and cream cheese on pizza!

name ideas:
 i love the names we've picked out. so far no one else has told us thats what they are naming their new arrival. they are not names on the top whatever list of 2012. its not facebook or hashtag or apple or anything. im excited for the baby to get here so i know which one its going to be!

wedding rings on or off? on
mood: im overall pretty happy. i had good workouts this week, great time spent with my running BFF, quality time spent at home watching SOA & always sunny in philadelphia with ty 
nursery: got the rocker all set up... read about that in my last post, the great target chair debacle 
workouts for the week: 8 miles running, 10.3 miles walking, 1 mile elliptical, 8 miles biking 


  1. that baby belly is sooo cute! It's really starting to show now. :) You are hitting the jackpot with your purchases lately--you need to come shopping with me so I can get unexpected sale prices! Glad you are feeling well.

  2. Love the new "daddy is feeling"!
    Names! I want to hear names!!! And yes, please come shopping with me too!!

  3. I love this post! What a cute idea. You are looking beautiful and happy too!

  4. Aww, I'm disappointed that you won't name your kid Hashtag! Hahahaha, just kidding :)

  5. Dude, you look great! Side note from a lady who knows: kick the cracklin' oat bran habit before you go back to high mileage running. Damn- it is delicious but rough on the GI like you would not believe.
    I'm getting excited to meet little Christian Gray or Anastasia Steele Sterling, it's getting close (er) :-)

  6. You look fantastic! I love Cracklin' Oat bran too and buy it no matter the price :)
