Pregnancy quiz: 23 weeks

How far along: 23 weeks, creeping along!

Size of Baby: Average baby at 23 weeks is eight inches and slightly over a pound. As far as I know baby girl is measuring a week late (so measuring at 22 weeks pregnant) so she might be a touch smaller than this.

Sleep: Last week I wrote: "mine ok. James's naps are only an hour this week. Uggg...." This week? Same. I really really need him to start napping a touch longer.

Pregnancy Clothes: Yep! I'm into both maternity pants and shirts. Pre-pregnancy hoodies I can still zip over my tummy, but its getting tight.

Movement: Yes. I love when I feel a gentle little kick.

Pregnancy Symptoms: I have been so teary this week. This is not me and I hate it. I hate feeling depressed and lonely and frustrated (which I've felt a lot this week).

Food Cravings: Fried foods. And things that are not at all good for me.

What I miss: My husband. Long work trips are the pits.

What I am looking forward to: Seeing E's smiling face when he returns!

Weekly Wisdom: When James is mean and aggressive, I've found that feeding him works better than timeout. Often times he's just hungry. Wish I knew that earlier this week.

Best moment this week: The fall leaves at Silver Lake. I'm still in awe.

Milestones: Baby Girl might be over a pound in weight!

Two videos this week! Both are shot from my iPhone vertically, hence the silly crop that YouTube gives it. Also, a sweet bath photo above. E is usually in charge of bath time, but being alone means I get to see all the sillies that bath time brings. I'm kinda liking it. ;)

We went to Barnes and Nobel when the weather turned from beautiful autumn to pre-winter yesterday. Both the videos are shot there.

The reason we went to Barnes and Nobel in the first place was to buy a truck book for this bulldozer and digger obsessed kid.

And James Joyce, the man who wrote Ulysses, is apparently Dada. James has done this for 6+ months and I find it hysterical.


  1. Oh my gosh! Ethan is James Joyce?! That is hilarious. Thanks for making me smile. :)

  2. Oh holy hilariousness! Ethan as James Joyce video is super cute!!!

  3. James and the James Joyce picture are hilarious!! James must be able to see something we can't, eh? ;)
