This week you are 32 weeks old! I feel like there's not anything new to tell you, other than your momma is feeling really old herself, lately! Naps, naps, naps have been on my radar. I get so pooped just sitting on the couch. I don't usually find energy to get up off the couch and out of my sweats until around lunchtime, even though I (we) wake up still at 7 every day.
You've stopped kicking me and really just kind of roll around now. I can still just sit and watch my tum for hours. It's so funny to watch you shift from one side of my stomach to the other and just watch a big blob move slowly across. Your cute little feetsies (or knees maybe?) usually sttrreeeeettccchh out on my left side. Sometimes it catches me off guard and I let out a little yelp. My skin isn't that stretchy, little one! :) You also have developed a regular habit of getting hiccups. Usually around 9 am and 4 pm. And you hiccup for about a half hour each time. I feel so bad for you. Holding my breath doesn't stop your hiccups, unfortunately. When you get hiccups in the middle of the night, I grab your daddy's hand and put it on your head and back so he can feel just how strong (and long) you hiccup! I figure, if you and I are up, daddy should be up too. Don't you think? ;)
It's definite - Kitty knows you are in me and has turned into the sweetest, most loving little kitty mama that you could ever have! She insists on sleeping on you, all the time. It's endearing, but also sometimes painful....We don't call her Fatty for no reason! :) She just always wants to curl up directly on top of you, and even when I push her off, she finds someway to keep her head and/or paws on you still. Look, isn't she precious?
Look! She's already giving you a kitty-bath!
I have no new pictures to show for your growth, other than these...I'm sorry :( I told you I'd make a better effort at taking weekly pictures and I got worse!
To change the subject away from your bad mama, I bought you 3 Christmas presents already this week!! I couldn't help myself. They were all perfect and I cannot wait to give them to you!! ... (next year...cough). Well, one of them I am actually giving to your daddy for Christmas this year, from you and me. So that will be all yours once you arrive!
I'm also sewing new stockings for daddy and I this year, and making yours next! Whether you are outside or inside right now, you are still our baby and still a part of our family now (and we are ecstatic to have you!) and I don't want to leave you out!
I love you, my precious babe. I cannot believe I get to see you SOON! Keep getting a cute and fat inside! Can't wait to make eye contact with you and kiss you all over soon.
