This week my little baby boy is measuring 17 inches and 2.9 pounds. This last half of my pregnancy is just flying by and I love that! I can't wait to see his chubby little face and hold him in my arms.
This week has been a real roller coaster. Sunday and Monday I spent my time packing up and saying goodbye to everyone back in Tennessee. Tuesday I drove the 15 hours back to New York! By myself... To top it off I had started feeling sick the day before. It was the longest drive of my life. Wednesday was another long day. I was miserably sick and our heat went out in the house. Lucky enough for me, we own an electric heater. Thursday came along and I was feeling much better. I got out and shoveled the walkway so maintenance could come fix my heat. I went through all the baby clothes we got and put them in groups for each size and got them all folded. Found out he doesn't need anymore newborn or 0-3. People went crazy on the clothes.
Friday and Saturday I was back to being sick. Friday the sinus pressure was horrible. My throat was dry from having to breathe through my mouth which became very painful as the day went on. Saturday it turned into a runny nose and sneezing every two minutes. My nose hurt from blowing it so much and I'm sure you momma's out there know all about sneezing while farther along in pregnancy. We got a few packages in the mail this week. I love when we get things for Grayson!
My mom ordered him a Baltic amber teething necklace. So many of my friends and family swear by them. I am pretty excited to see how well it works. I have also been working on a wedding photo album online. My original plan was to give it to my husband for our one year anniversary because the traditional anniversary gift for the first year is paper. I've been working on it for months, on and off and while in Tennessee I finished it. They had a deal going on at the time so I ended up ordering it. I had a few other paper ideas for our anniversary. I'm not worried about coming up with something special. The wedding album turned out perfect! I designed everything. I can't wait for Justin to get home on Monday and be able to look through it with me.
