Hump Day, Bump Day: Week 32

Happy first day of summer, everyone, and happy anniversary to my husband and me! Three years ago we figuratively "jumped the broom," and after having spent almost a decade together, I have to say the last three have been the most interesting and adventure filled yet.

I mean, adding a baby into the mix couldn't make it any MORE interesting, right?

On to the photos, which get more difficult to shoot with each week that progresses.

Musings on weekly photo: I took these hastily after a walk with my dog... no judgement! Also, hallelujah for stretch fabric.

Size of baby: Right around four pounds and probably between 18 and 19 inches. We have our last ultrasound scheduled for July 3 (which, of course, can't come fast enough), and our doctor will predict his size at birth at this appointment. I'm putting my money at the over 8 pound mark, but we'll obviously have to wait until August to see if I'm right!

Movement: BBS kicked for his Auntie Lindsay this week, which I believe makes her the second person to feel a kick and the fifth person to feel movement. He has a tendency to stop moving the second anyone turns their attention to his activity, so I was pretty happy she got to experience it.

Cravings: We received a Vitamix this past weekend from my awesome in-laws at my phenomenal baby shower, and I have officially broken it in with this green smoothie. It is uber-healthy, uber-delicious and I can only imagine that baby boy loves it as much as his mama!

Annoyance: The usual suspects, naturally: sleeplessness, heartburn, and when I actually fall asleep, waking up sore all over. We've entered fun territory, let me tell you.

Highlight of the week: The shower was the definite highlight of my week. Seeing some people I haven't in years, enjoying the company of my friends and family and celebrating my baby was beyond a good time.

Non-Highlight of the week: I... don't think I have one? Oh, there's a person who owns a red Jeep who keeps parking where I normally park, and while it's technically not "my spot," I've come to see it as such. So I curse the red car every time I see it. I realize this is an appropriate spot to mention we bought a new car a couple weeks ago, but I completely forgot to say so when it would have been relevant (you know, for the HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK section). It's a silver Toyota Rav4 and I love it quite a bit.

Fears: Oh golly gosh, I'm good for right now. No fears this week, folks!

Nursery: The nursery looks like a bomb went off, mainly due to all the amazingly generous gifts we received on Saturday. This baby is already spoiled and well loved, let me tell you.

Additional Notes: We are off to Palm Springs this weekend to celebrate our anniversary and relish in one last vacation that's just the two of us (I think they've been known to call them "babymoons" in some circles). I plan on floating around like a beached whale in the pool at our hotel and eating great Mexican food. I also feel this is a good time to mention I had a dream last night involving dinner with Kareem Abdul Jabar. Que interesante...

Happy Hump Day, Bump Day everyone!


  1. BEAUTIFUL MAMA!!!! You are glowing :) I can't wait to hear how your ultrasound goes! 8 more weeks...!!!

    1. That outfit looks much different on me now than it did two months ago, huh? ;)

  2. Although you have a beautiful baby bump, how is it possible you still look so thin?! Lucky lady! I bought a Rav4 as well... Great gas mileage and seats go down easily so you can easily change BBS while you're out and on the go! Only a few more weeks to go!! Seems to me this is going to be an unforgettable summer...

    1. Allie, I have to ask if you have problems with your vision because this little lady is looking anything BUT skinny these days! ;) I love the car! Great space, good ride, and pretty on the outside. No complaints here, whatsoever.

  3. I found your blog through searching the E-Tells-Tales "pen pals" comments, and it's a little eerie how similar we are! I also work in social media, I'm 31 weeks pregnant (except with a baby girl), I drive a Rav4, AND the majority of my blog is dedicated to bump updates! Just thought I'd leave a completely random comment and let you know that useless info ;)

    B-t-dubs, you're a beautiful pregnant momma! All belly, for sure!

    1. Hi Samantha Jo! Welcome! It does sound like we have a crazy amount in common; such is the beauty of the blogosphere, in my ever-so-humble opinion. This blog used to be about so much more than my ever expanding mid-section, but baby brain has led to a hideous case of writer's block.

      Congratulations on your baby girl and thanks for leaving a random comment; I'm all about it :)
