Our Weekend and a 12 week lime

At 12 weeks, our baby is the size of a lime and measures just over 2 inches from crown to rump, weighing in at a grand ½ ounce. I’m glad to have graduated from fig to lime, and am eagerly looking forward to seeing what fruit our baby will grow into next, according that is. ;)
This past weekend was a busy one, full of babysitting, sewing projects, pizza, lounging and a trip to the movie theater (accompanied by the now highly regretted movie theater popcorn). I’ll post some pictures of my latest sewing projects soon, once I find the motivation and patience to complete those last few details. I’m working on a little skirt and corduroy jumper and drum roll please, learning how to sew in a zipper! My next post will undoubtedly be titled, “If you want to work on your patience, learn to sew.”

On my end of the baby front, aside from some headaches here and there, sprinkled with a nice helping of constant congestion, I’m feeling really good. In all seriousness, I’m so grateful for such a healthy start and hope, knock on wood, that all continues as such. After all, I hear it only gets better from here on out…that is until the very very end, but I’ll take that one day at a time ;) Our next appointment is at the end of October, and I’m eagerly anticipating the confirmation and excitement that hearing the little heartbeat will bring. In the meantime, I think our mini weekend getaway to Charleston and the state fair will fill our time very nicely. :)

If your baby is a lime, then my baby must be a watermelon-- haha! Glad things are going well and look forward to future updates.
