Time just seems to continue to fly by, especially with the holidays in the mix. This Friday I had my next appointment and everything still is developing well, for which we are thankful for.
Well, since I am at 24 weeks now, I am starting to think about baby showers and registries, etc. There is so much out there, yet trying to find the happy medium where I only get the things that I NEED and not just go crazy with registering for a lot of extras that may or may not truly be necessary. If any of you moms out there have any great suggestions as to things that you felt were a necessity, please let me know.
Even though, I am the oldest of 8 and have had a lot of experience with kids, doesn't mean I know everything about what would be necessary to have when starting out with a baby in the house. My mom had everything she needed and when you are home dealing with a younger sibling, you just automatically use what was there. Now, to try to come up with a list for myself is a bit intimidating as I want to make sure I don't forget anything. I don't want to be running out to get things the first day I am home.
Well, here is what the little one looks like now. Isn't it amazing the progress that takes place? I still can't fully grasp that this is truly what is inside of me. I am just overwhelmed with the intricacy of this new human and that God has it planned perfectly to happen this way.
Here is what I look like now:
