How far along: 30 weeks. Only ten (or 11) weeks to go!
Sleep: Some nights are ok, others are horrible. I'm awake a lot between 4 and 6 am.
Movement: Yep yep yep.
Size of Baby: 15.7" long and almost three pounds!
Pregnancy Symptoms: Pregnancy insomnia. Exhaustion, heartburn, back and leg aches. Sciatic nerve pain.
Food Cravings: Nothing much. Everything tastes good. Had to pretty much give up the tea and OJ this week due to heartburn.
What I miss: Coffee. It's been a long time since I've been able to enjoy a cup without that dang heartburn. Also, the warm sun. Although it hasn't snowed yet, it is cold outside making James and I stay indoors most of the day.
What I am looking forward to: St. Nicholas Tea is on Sunday. It is an annual tradition and one that really kicks off the Christmas season for me.
Weekly Wisdom: Watching someone you love grow older is horrible. My grandma is doing ok, but not well. She can't walk and is back at the rehab facility she was a year ago. Not sure if she'll ever walk again.
Best moment this week: Hearing James being a chatter box all through dinner last night. He was so excited to tell E about his day, he almost forgot to eat. Also we set up the Christmas tree last weekend. It was wonderful. We had the fire lit, Christmas music playing, and the most adorable little elf you've ever seen.
Milestones: 30 weeks feels like a milestone.
As I mentioned above, we set up the Christmas tree last weekend. Each year this gets more and more fun. James found the ornaments fascinating, and handed them to E and I with increasing speed for us to place on the tree. We joked that it was like a Christmas tree decorating sweat shop.
Near the end of decorating he decided to add a few of his own things. He stuffed them all in the back of one section of the tree. It is hilarious.
Finalizing his work.
After all the hard work James and Dada had to sit down for a story break. Of course we have many digger books on hand.
These photos remind me so much of decorating the tree last year with a one year old! Here is a link.
