tummy time

It's about that time again...Time for a little baby update! As you can see, this tum of ours has been making some serious progress. Thanks, in part, to Thanksgiving. I'm convinced that's when this baby grew from a barely-bump to officially obvious. Sort of fun! And I am definitely sporting mama maternity pants everywhere I go. They rock. And I recently invested in one of these little numbers to help bridge the wardrobe gap. And the tops are next to go. I'm still getting by with layered long tanks and longer, stretchy ts. Getting dressed every morning hasn't been this much of a challenge since I was 14. But I am loving it. Loving the excuse to constantly buy new clothes. :)
Although we instantly made room in our hearts for this little man, we're slowly making space in our apartment for his arrival. We just did some major rearranging to accommodate our Christmas tree + more space for this beautiful Pottery Barn crib we scored off of Craigslist. I'm so excited to set it up later this winter! I'm thinking of an aqua+chocolate brown+chartreuse scheme for the nursery. I want to keep it simple, white and bright, and fresh-looking. And we have the added challenge of making the room flow with the rest of our apartment, as baby will be inhabiting half of the craft/guest bedroom for now! I just made a quick baby registry at Target and fell head over heels for this perfect bedding. Am so excited! I can tell this sweet boy is getting excited about meeting the world too...He's been flipping+kicking up a little storm lately. Jeff still hasn't felt him yet (!!!)--so I can't even wait for that moment. Hopefully it will be soon!
