33 weeks!

I know, I know... this post is a little late. It's just been quite a crazy 33rd week... first off, one of the upsides to our Atlanta staycation was that I had no commute (aka a five minute walk back to the hotel) and DJ was working late every night pretty much so I stayed in the office late and got a LOT done last week... then Thursday was a whirlwind of all sorts. I got some unexpected and sad news that a family member had passed away while at work, and it was the same day my mom was travelling in to see us. Basically, I was all sorts of out of it and just in shock/upset all day.

To top it off, my baby shower was on Saturday and the funeral was around 5 hours way on Friday so mom and I couldn't make it... that paired with the emotions of losing some dear to my heart and the crazy way I found out made for a pretty crazy rollercoaster of a weekend... yeah. So that explains the "radio silence" around here for the past few days - it's been hard to write about the excitement of my mom visiting/baby shower when I had a bit of a heavy heart... with all of that being said, I pushed it all aside this weekend and tried to soak up the love that was surrounding DJ, baby J and I and realize just how lucky we truly are.

Having my mom in town was great (and stressful) and the shower was a blast. It was super lowkey and relaxed and I'm pretty sure that sweet pea now has more clothes than I do... I spent Sunday with my mom running errands and washing and organizing all of Sweet Pea's clothes/blankets/accessories etc. It was a great 33rd week and I can't believe tomorrow starts my 34th week!

Here are this past week's stats --

  • Baby J is the size of a Honeydew melon [yowzers], weighing between 4.2 to 5.8 lbs and measuring between 17.2-18.7 inches! 
  • Apparently Baby J is keeping her little eyes open in utero when she's awake and starting to 
  • She's definitely been an active little monkey - especially at night, my mom felt her move this weekend so that was really exciting for both of us and might have even caused some tears all around.
  • Baby J was a star this weekend and took part in her first photoshoot! Josh and Tiffani came early to the shower and Josh took some maternity photos of us... Josh is an amazing photographer and I cannot, cannot, cannot wait to see them! 
33rd week bump, no real bump photo this week (well other than the ones Josh took but I don't have those yet...) but you definitely get the picture of my "growth" in this picture of mom and I...
yes, my mom is adorable.
yes, I'm a giant next to her in so many ways.

some more 33rd week snapshots...
pretty darn cute stuff, huh?
so that's that.
33 weeks down, 7 to go! [?!?!]

Sorry you had some sorrow mixed with your joy. It may have been a blessing in disguise, something to look forward to.
