Bring on the summer dresses because I am in full on summer mode now. =)  Only a few days left before July is officially here!  Maxi dresses, hats, sandals and sunscreen, here I come!

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 32 Weeks

Baby is the size of a:  Squash!  (I got ahead of myself last week and said squash but it was actually the size of a pineapple then)

Total weight gain: 17 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Nope…not yet.

Sleep:  Still needing my mid-day naps in order to properly function for the rest of the day.  There was one day this week where I decided to skip my nap and by the end of the day I realized I had wore my shirt backwards the entire day!!

Best moment this week:  I have two this week!  My friend at work organized a baby shower for me this week and it was absolutely amazing.  We all went out for dinner and the little one inside me got showered with tons of presents!  She’s already being spoiled by all her mama’s beautiful friends.  Lucky gal!  The second best moment this week was going to my ultrasound to check if baby is growing (because my OB said I was measuring a bit small).  She looks great and is already 4 lbs 11 ounces at the moment.  The tech said that I’m basically all baby weight so far.  It was such a relief to know she is doing okay in there.  Now I’m just hoping she turns on time as she’s still currently breech, otherwise it will be a caesarian for me.  ouch!

Worst moment of the week:  The store where we bought our change table shipped the wrong one to us!!  After a week of being on the phone with them and disassembling the parts, we are getting a full exchange for the one that we originally said we wanted.  It was super aggravating at first because they gave us the attitude like we decided to simply change our minds last minute.  Umm…no!  Their sales associate was obviously incapable of writing down the correct model number when we pointed to the change table that we wanted to purchase.  Grr…I get very worked up about bad customer service…

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Having energy to do things.  I feel like I’m always tired in the late afternoons now.  Most days, I don’t even feel like I have the energy to go to the mall (I know, right?! what?!!)

Movement:  yup!  Lots of moving around now even during the day.  I feel like it’s a matter of time before I see the shape of a hand or foot stretched out on my belly.

Food Cravings: I’ve replenished my gelato supply in my freezer so I’m definitely still craving dairy.  I’ve also been drinking two tall glasses of organic milk everyday!  The burger cravings are also still present.  At my second baby shower this week, I had a bacon cheddar burger and it was absolutely satisfying.  This girl loves her protein eh?  My friend has decided to nickname her Chuck or Angus. lol!!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  For sure!  My hubby was imitating the way that I walk now. =P

Belly Button in or out?  In, but it’s still so close to being an outie.  It kind of looks like a weirdly shaped cinnamon bun right now.  eww right?

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy

Looking forward to:  Getting more items for the nursery and more catch up time with girlfriends (I want to do as much of this before she arrives and takes over my life! haha)

Grandpa & Fedora

Sweater:  Aritzia
Shirt:  Halogen
Leggings:  Kohls
Boots:  Steve Madden
Hat:  H & M
Bag:  Marc by Marc Jacobs

Grandpa sweaters are one of my favourite Fall/Winter items.  Aside from the fact that they take up a lot of my precious closet space, I think they are totally worth the investment.  First off, they keep me super warm (especially this cashmere & wool blend one that I’m wearing), and second, you can wear them with jeans, leggings or skirts!  Oh, and if that’s not enough, they’re also perfect to wear to those holiday dinners where you know you’ll be going to town on the garlic mashed potatoes and the triple chocolate cheesecake.  Perfect for hiding that food baby that is bound to happen especially on an overindulgent meal! 😉

Thanks for stopping by!

xo, C.

Happy Friday!  I refuse to admit that summer is almost over.  With that being said though, end of summer means beginning of Fall, which is my favourite season for clothes!  Trench coats, leather skinnies, ankle booties – at least we have that to look forward to!  For now, have a great weekend and enjoy the outdoors! 😉
