You are the closest I will ever come to magic.
Suzanne Finnamore

how far along: 23 weeks (plus one day). only 16+ weeks to go!!!!

baby is the size of: a grapefruit or ear of corn (1.5 pounds!)

movement: still inconsistent, but getting stronger. and full-on body flips. baby must be a gymnast.

miss anything: sushi at the moment. desperately.

cravings: my appetite has been lousy this week.. still dealing with major food aversions. candy corn is the only craving that comes to mind, but that is not abnormal for me this time of year.

symptoms: sciatica pain is horrid.

showing: i always swore i would never wear those maternity shirts that bunch up on the sides... yea, well now i live in them. it's ridiculous how weird i look in one of my husbands shirts now. those maternity clothing folks sure know what they're doing.

wedding rings on or off: still on.

best moment this week: naps with guinness when i'm sure baby can hear his snores because he is snuggled so close. and G coming with us to pick up the paint for baby's nursery. and the crib & mattress arriving the other day.

looking forward to: seeing the finished nursery paint job. the trim, closet and ceiling are all just about done and this weekend hopefully the color will be up on the walls!

it's been a very emotional week and my raging hormones aren't helping. but right now i am cuddled up with my sweet mister guinness.. he is loving on this baby so much already.

also, can we just note that it is nathan scott week? this is very important.
