I'm 20-weeks pregnant today with a little baby girl!
Honestly, it sounds corny but sometimes it's really hard to believe the whole thing is actually happening.
It's like a dream come true!
I'm feeling good despite a little bit of sleep issues here and there but overall doing good.
I went in today and learned that I gained 4-pounds last month.
Not bad considering all the books say you're suppose to gain a pound a week.
I think that puts me at 15-total pounds gained.
I'm keeping up with my 5-days of power walking each week but it is getting harder.
I don't move as fast as I use to but keep telling myself that as long as I am doing something active than it's better than doing nothing.
So, here are my crappy bump pictures.
From the front.
And, the side shot.
Buddy is in the back wondering, WTF?
Also, my bump was featured on the HoneyPie Archives this week.

Some days I look bigger than others.
In more baby preparedness news...
We bought a new car!
We traded in my JEEP Liberty for a Honda Pilot.
A ton of more room for Baby S and a 3rd row seat.
I love it so far!
I drove Honda's for 15-years until the JEEP so I'm glad to be back in one.
I also registered over the weekend with the help of my awesome SIL, Robyn.
Thank goodness she went with me because there are a lot of choices and half of the items I'm not sure if I really need or not.
I saw all sorts of cute girly stuff and it makes me even more excited!
Everyone laughs and says 'really?' when I tell them that I never pictured being a Mom to a girl.
Not sure why since I am a girly girl?
The only thing I can think of is because I did all the girly things I ever wanted to do and I don't wish to live through my child??
Even so, I'm into it now!
I went bat-sh--t crazy over this bedding a Pottery Barn Kids this weekend.
Then I realized it's on back order and my Mom talked me off the ledge saying that everyone under the sun will have it and that there are other things out there.
So, I moved on -- or -- might I say -- back -- to wanting something custom made.
I found these fabric swatches at Bellini here in Charlotte today.
I flipped out over the ballerinas!
A lot of you may not know it but I danced for years and years and even taught for a while in high school.
My Mom saved my first ever ballet costume/tutu and shoes and had planned to put them in a shadow box one day.
Well, guess what??
That one day is here!
I want incorporate it into the nursery along with other dance/ballet pieces.
I hope to use some of these fabrics or some similar to them to have curtains and a bed skirt made.
I figure I can buy gingham sheets anywhere.
Not doing bumpers though.
I'm trying to convince my Mom to start sewing again! She was so good at it!
And, how about this lamp??
Love it but not the $450 price tag!
I love the ballet theme and I think it will work for Baby S up until she's halfway through elementary school.
So many decisions and fun things to get together!
I'm glad I have a few more months!
I'll try and post more in the coming weeks!
