34 Weeks

Ok, we really are at 34 weeks this time, and feeling every bit of it!
We ventured out to Buy Buy Baby this past weekend and boy did Bryan enjoy himself.  He was like a kid in a candy store.  We picked up a few odds and ends including a copy of "Goodnight North Carolina" to go right next to "Goodnight NJ" on the bookshelf.  (I have a feeling this child is going to have a lot of NJ/NC gear) But most importantly we picked up our car seat and stroller!!  Wooo!  I have a car detailing scheduled in two weeks to have my beast sparkling clean for the new bambino and then we'll look into installing the car seat.  As for the stroller, we were able to roll right out of the store with it!  They offered us the brand new floor model at an extra 10% off so we jumped on it!  We went with the Baby Jogger City Elite model and can't wait to use it!! 

Stats of the Week 

Size of baby: 4 3/4 lbs and about 18 inches, roughly the size of a cantaloupe.  yum again.  

What I miss:  Being able to walk more than 30 ft. without having to catch my breathe!

Best Moment this week: Picking up the stroller and car seat and also a super cute new dresser that we're going to use as a changing table in the baby's room
What baby likes AKA cravings:  The usual.  sweet things and carbs.  Yesterday though I had a very strange, yet very strong craving for blueberry beer!  I know it sounds weird, but it's good.  And I would like to have one.  It's on the list of must haves for after baby comes!

Movement:  Still lots of it, I just wish I could tell which body part was jabbing me or sticking out of my belly! 

Sleep:  I asked the doctor last week if I could take melatonin and he said YES!  That was very exciting!  I haven't had to go there yet, but I'm expecting to need a "sleep aide" the closer I get towards the end, and since wine is out...I'll have to settle

Looking Forward to: That thing they call nesting is starting to kick in I think.  I'm starting to feel a strong desire to want to get things organized.  Also the rocker for the nursery should be coming soon and I'm excited about that!
 That bump is starting to stick out far!

Testing Baby Coble's new gear with the dolls my great grandmother made for me!

I had to share this adorable bib one of our friends got for Baby C.  It's a Grey Dog!!!


  1. I can't believe I am going to say this, but this is the first time looking at you that I am starting to think are all belly!!
    That bib is adorable!
    And yay for sleeping meds-they work wonders!!

  2. i laughed out loud at the pic of the dolls in your baby gear - and i am SUPER jealous of that bib - do they make bullmastiff ones?!

    i am going to side with paige and change my vote to baby coble being the next duck hunter in the family (not that a little girl couldn't get out there, but you know what i mean)!
