24 weeks

Friends! I’m now 24 weeks pregnant. Or 6 months, if you are counting literally. This will also be the last month of my second trimester.

I have been so lucky over these last 4 weeks. I have had next to no symptoms, aside from daily heartburn, the nightly swelling of my legs and feet, and periodic Braxton Hicks contractions. Looking back at this time with Remy, I see that I was also feeling great and established a really productive routine during the day. This must be the magical time of pregnancy for me, at least. I cannot say the same for all mamas with great certainty. If only all pregnancies were this easy. ;-)))

Here are a few more facts about growing babe:

– he/she weighs about 1.3 lbs
– now measure him/her head to toe
– his/her skin has a pinky hue
– he/she can taste what I eat

So far, I’ve gained around 18 lbs. It’s more than I would have hoped for, but as long as we get a healthy little one, it is worth it!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetHi everyone! I had mentioned in my last post that I wouldn’t be returning until September, but it’s our little brat’s half birthday today. How could I not honour her in a blog post?

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetThese are the things that she loves so far:

– to grab everything
– to throw and knock over toys
– to watch us eat
– to roll around
– to talk
– to suck her toes
– to drink water from a glass
– to listen to and watch her nursery songs
– to be outside
– to be scared
– to hold hands
– to have her face stroked
– to be kissed
– the colour yellow
– all living animals
– to drink a bottle of breast milk
