22 Weeks + Our Weekend

First up, my 22 week bumpdate!

How far along:  22 weeks.
Gender: Girl!
Belly button in or out:  You should see what this thing looks like when I tighten my abs... or lack thereof. Yikes.
Maternity clothes: Mostly just living in leggings these days.  Thankfully, my Pats shirt still fit no problem!  I was 25 weeks pregnant with Ellie when they won the Super Bowl two years ago, so I had to make sure I wore my shirt for the picture this time around too.  Not superstitious or anything like that. ;)
Stretch marks:  Nothing yet.
Sleep:  Sleep hasn't been bad. I don't think I realized how much I missed sleeping in our own bed until we set it up again.
Best moment of the week: Thank God the Pats won the Super Bowl.
Miss anything:  Some days an afternoon cup of tea sounds so good to have as a little pick-me-up, but my morning cup of coffee always takes my daily caffeine allowance.
Movement: This past week was the first time I've noticed being able to see her move around from the outside which is always exciting! :)
Cravings:  Special K with fresh blueberries and deli meat, which is a little ironic since I'm sure it had been months since I had a deli sandwich before I got pregnant and I didn't seem to be missing it then.
Queasy or sick:  Feeling good.
Looking forward to: Continuing to get settled in our house so we can get back to the important things, like decorating Ellie's new room and planning Willow's. ;)

It's been awhile since I've done an "our weekend" post, but was looking back at old ones last week and decided they are some of my favorites to go back and read.  I used to have to delete so many pictures off my phone to be able to take more (before I got a new phone with more storage), so I was coming across so many pictures I didn't even remember seeing and it definitely put a smile on my face. :)

Friday night, getting the mail turned into a little sledding session while Tyler was on his way home from work.  Once I convinced Ellie to come inside and warm up, we kicked off our weekend with heart shaped pizzas!  You'll never guess whose dinner idea that was. ;)   I used Pillsbury dough, free-handed the shape of the hearts with a pizza cutter and actually used a pair of (very clean) scissors to cut the pepperoni since my heart cookie cutter is too big for that.  Yes, Ellie did actually look excited when I took hers out of the oven and showed it to her - definitely worth the little bit of extra effort! :)
 Saturday was pretty quiet, Ellie and I hung out at home during the day and worked on some more unpacking.  I got most of her clothes organized, set aside the things that she's outgrown recently for baby sis and hung a bunch of stuff in her closet.  Afterwards, we all headed out to Tyler's parents' house for dinner.  It was just a small gathering of 16 people and only one of Tyler's siblings was missing, which is pretty impressive considering it was kind of a last minute get-together!  The only pictures I took were of Ellie helping feed her baby cousin, Elijah.  I feel like it was a little bit of a preview into my life in just a few short months! :)  Ellie was really interested in him and surprisingly gentle, it was the sweetest to see.

On Sunday, Ellie and I ran out to grab some supplies for the Super Bowl first thing in the morning.  The rest of our day was spent baking one of our favorite desserts and getting ready for the game that night.  Tyler's parents, my parents and my sister came over to watch the game - having all of Ellie's favorite people in one house at the same time definitely blew her mind!  This weekend felt like it was really the first we got to enjoy and take advantage of having our families living so close to us now and it was so nice.  Of course, the crazy win by the Pats didn't make for a bad weekend either! :)

Staying up way past my bedtime to watch the end of the game was so worth it.  I think it was better than Christmas morning in Tyler's world! ;)  Hope you had a good weekend too!
