oh baby:: 17 weeks!


vest:: {cinnamon girl}
dress:: {forever 21}
belt:: {forever21}
sandals:: {payless}





I think I'm going to start smooshing outfit posts and bump updates together. At least when I have a fun outfit on. ;) Plus, I just had to show off my yellow toenail polish from my pedi yesterday. Love trying new colors and I think I've found a new fave! 

I've really been feeling great lately. I've been a bit more tired than the past few weeks and I seem to have caught a cold this week, which surely will make our flight to San Diego not-so-pleasant. My belly has been really tight and itchy lately so I've been slathering it with Palmer's Tummy Butter which smells heavenly. I've been feeling lots of little kicks this week, but it's hard for me to get too excited because I keep thinking "How silly would it be if I was all giddy about what turns out to be gas?!" But I really do think they are kicks and I smile each time I feel that little flick. 

Chris and I have had lots of conversation about what the next few months will look like leading up to the baby's arrival. I'm starting to mourn Hawaii and have teared up a few times at the thought of leaving our dear, dear friends before this baby comes. We're looking at taking some birth classes before we move and have been daydreaming about what gummy bear will look like-- whether he or she will be short like mama, or tall like daddy. I still am in awe at the fact that real life miracles are taking place inside of me every second of the day as God knits together our little one.

PS. Due to our weekend trip, there will be no Little Things linkup this week and I'll be taking a short blog break until sometime next week. See you then!

  5. Loving your outfit this week!
    Have a fun, safe trip.

    I am feeling the same kind of moving angst... we are leaving Hawaii in October for good. It's definitely bitter sweet.

    1. We are for sure leaving Hawaii. We've known all along that we'd be leaving, it's inevitable with the military! Things are still up in the air about where and exactly when we are leaving so that's a bit frustrating right now.

  12. I think the thin mints could have somethign to do with the movement. MY mom said she ate thin mints with me and I would do summersaults! ENJOY the feeling, it's the best in the world!

    1. I have no idea, Allison. I bought it in the store last week, but I'm sure they only have a few things online and maybe different things in different areas? Hope you find it!
