Summer G o o d b y e s + Bumpdate

Here's a little recap of our summer trips to Newport Beach in California and Fort Walton Beach in Florida...


I am so sad to say goodbye to an amazing summer on these gorgeous beaches with our family!  I can't believe it will be our last summer on the beach without a little one! I hope our little guy will love the ocean as much as his parents! 
BUMPDATE:

I am now 24 weeks preggo which means only a few more weeks until I hit the 3rd trimester! WHAT??  This second trimester has flown by and I can now see why its called the "honeymoon" trimester. My morning sickness completely went away and all things food taste amazing! My energy levels have been pretty much back to normal and I get to feel my little man start to move more and more everyday!

I made a list of a few reasons why being pregnant has its awesome moments!:)
*Your hair is way more full and gorgeous than it's ever been.(thanks to your prenatal vitamins).
*Going to bed at 7 p.m. is perfectly acceptable, if not encouraged.
*You can eat whatever you want whenever you want.
*Since you keep getting bigger, you have to go shopping all the time for new clothes that fit. Valid excuse to spend money.
*The special reserved parking spot for pregnant women at the grocery store.
*Your husband is extra nice to you. Requesting a foot massage is no big deal!
*Unless you're really passionate about it, you don't have to work out at all.
*People throw you parties with lots of presents and cake.
*You get to wear pants with an elastic waist every single day!

BABY IS THE SIZE OF: A spaghetti squash! About 11 inches long and a full POUND 1/2!

MATERNITY CLOTHES: Finally had to break down and buy a maternity band! It feels so amazing though and I can wear all my normal jeans now! Investigating lots of dresses for this fall. I just ordered a few  on Asos.

SLEEP: I sleep like a baby but have the most intense realistic dreams every night. I have to go pee every few hours too so im getting up a few times a night. He must be sitting very low!

MOVEMENT: I will never get sick of answering YES to this question. Just this week he has been kicking me during the day and right before I go to bed they get really strong!

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Buying his first pair of white/purple converse. And finding one of Raineys adorable baby outfits in an old box at his parents house.  A velvet vest and a matching hat, literally the cutest thing I have ever seen!

MISS ANYTHING: Not really!!

FOOD CRAVINGS: Flaming hot Cheetos….those things I tell ya. Frosted Flakes cereal, bean and cheese burritos, and blue gatorade.

ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Too much sugar and most sandwiches.

AM I SHOWING: see above picture….the bump is out for good!

WEIGHT GAIN: 10lbs!!

STRETCH MARKS:  None yet…. i'm putting coconut oil on every night.

HAPPY OR MOODY: Super super happy lately! I have a ton of energy.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: My next ultrasound in a few weeks! We are planning on getting the 3D so we can see a little glimpse as to what our little boy will look like. Also registering at Target and Babys R Us so we can get the nursery started!!
