21 Weeks

Baby Pep,

It's still sinking in- YOU'RE A BOY! Daddy and I have started seriously having the name discussion. I think we may have settled on one for you, but honestly, it seems too premature. I don't think I'll be ready to call you by name until we officially meet you. 

In other news, you've been kicking. A LOT. I started feeling you several weeks ago, but it was hard to differentiate your little movements from my regular digestion. Though it seems, in the last week you've been ready to make your presence known! I think I've felt you every single day since our ultrasound, mostly at night right around bedtime. It's such an odd sensation to feel like you're being kicked by a tiny human- I keep trying to get Daddy to feel them, but no luck yet. I guess he'll just have to wait until you're a bit bigger.

Daddy and I have also been hunkering down and getting into nesting mode. We spent all day Saturday cleaning your future home from top to bottom. And it felt so good! We've also been thinking more and more about your nursery. In fact, Mommy is planning an Ikea trip with the girls next weekend to get a head start! First thing on the list? A dresser to start storing your cute little clothes and diapers in.

I think that's the big stuff this week, baby. I'm loving watching you grow.



  1. you're so cute pregnant!

  2. Awww, I love those early for-sure-thats-the-baby kicks! And Ikea!
