Baby Striclyn III: Week 25

week twenty five
25 weeks and 1 day!  Notice baby Jonathan photobombing from a young age.

How far along are you?  25 weeks!  Time flies when you’re raising toddlers!

What’s new with baby this week?  She is certainly stronger every week.  If Tylee would be patient enough to wait for a kick, should would totally be able to feel it!

How much are you showing this week?  Enough to be worried that my belly was going to pop out the bottom of my workout tank top this afternoon, lol

How are you feeling?  I still feel good!  I have SO much more energy with this pregnancy and I’ve even been keeping my house CLEAN lately.  Which, by the way, is a big deal for me.  I’ve not always been such a lovely housewife 😉

Any new pregnancy symptoms?  I can’t recall anything new.  I’m a little bit afraid to post these since some of my friends have TERRIBLY uncomfortable pregnancies, but I just feel really good.

Sleep?  Like a champ.

Miss anything?  I’ve been missing my own Mama a lot here lately.  May is just a hard month for missing my mom–both of my brothers birthdays are in May, Mother’s Day, her birthday was in May (she would have been FIFTY-years-beautiful tomorrow!)….some days are just hard.  This week we found the only present she ever got to give to any of her grand babies.  She sent me a little giraffe for Tylee before we knew if she was a boy or a girl.  It’s my favorite now.  I gave it to Tylee when I found it in a box and said, “Tylee!  This was the very first animal you ever got…Grammy T gave it to you when you were just a little baby in my belly like your sister is now!”  And now she sleeps with it and always mentions Grammy T whenever she picks it up. 🙂

Movement?  Yes, baby kicks are the best!  Well…when they are on the inside!

Food cravings?  Still chick fil a

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Nope!

Pregnancy brain?  I don’t think I’ve done anything too crazy the past few weeks.  Last night I forgot to move the chicken from the freezer to the refrigerator to defrost, but I don’t think I can blame that one on being pregnant.

Belly button in or out?  If it weren’t for my umbilical hernia, I think my belly button would just be flat, but as it is, if I’m standing at least, it’s out!

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Do you think you’re having a boy or a girl?  It’s a girl!!!!  Raelyn Mille

Worst moment this week?  I remember crying really hard one day about missing my mom, but now I can’t think of what started it.  I better not try or I’ll cry again!

Best moment this week?  Probably watching Tylee and Ember play together.  Ember is finally old enough to really interact well with Tylee when she tries to play with him and it is just the cutest thing to watch!  Oh and since I’m not doing these EVERY week anymore, I’ll also add:  Finding out that baby goose is a GIRL!!!!  I love knowing her gender and being able to call her by name!  It was so fun to find out because each baby changes the dynamic of the family so much and now we know!!  Bring on the matching sister outfits and all the hair bows!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

Happy or moody most of the time?  Happy!

Looking forward to anything?  Tomorrow we get to see Aunt Suzie!!!!  She was my mom’s best friend and she has been at my delivery for each of my babies.  Tomorrow we will meet her in a nearby town and I’ll get to spend my mommy’s birthday with her!  I know my mom’s heart would be glad to see it 🙂

Updates from big sister Tylee or big brother Ember?  Hmm…Tylee went poo poo in the potty this week!  And Ember has been covered from head to toe in a rash of unknown origin.  Tylee is good at saying “Raelyn Millie” and Ember takes every available opportunity to lift up my shirt and lay down on my belly!  They like to take turns blowing zerberts on my belly and Tylee says they are tickling baby sister, haha.  SO CUTE!  🙂
