17 weeks!

I'm in shock that I'm already 17 weeks! It's weird... you'd think that you would feel all kinds of weird things going on inside with a baby the size of a ONION swimming around in you! But I'm feeling super great... I even feel perfectly normal! So crazy. The second trimester has been a breeze, really. Such a drastic change from the first! I just love being pregnant. It really has been and will continue to be the most exciting time in both of our lives. 
I can't stop thinking and talking about our baby! Sometimes I can't even believe that our little one is actually in there. 

Last week, I bought this adorable little snowsuit thing for baby:
I thought it could totally be for a boy or girl even though it was in the boy section. It's super soft and so so cute! The picture doesn't really give it justice. But the best part, it was on sale for $6! 
Hehe. It's so incredibly fun buying clothes for our little one! 

I definitely have a little bump... but still not big enough that anyone besides Lee or I would really notice TOO much. I'll have to put up bump pictures soon! It just feels silly because it still looks tiny! 

Anyways, you should all head over here and read this post. Every year at Christmas time (well really all the time), I think about how frustrated I am with how we have turned the birth of Christ into such a commercialized, self-centered time of year. We truly have lost the meaning, and its time I stop thinking about it and really do something to change it.
 I hope this post will encourage you, like it did me!


  1. I wanna see bump pictures! No matter how tiny, there's still a baby growing up in there!

    and I enjoyed Jen's post too. I agree with her on so many levels. It's really great to have a community of believers here.

  2. I love all things sock monkey! So so so cute! =)

  3. So exciting :) I love that little outfit! :)

  4. aw, that snow suit is adorable! little clothes are so precious. and i agree about Christmastime...I feel like sometimes, even in church, we focus more on things like snowmen and Santa than the nativity. It breaks my heart.

  5. the only thing more amazing that than jumpsuit is the price! I love a good steal.

  6. I want to see the little bump :) Im going to go read that article now!
    Have a Merry Christmas :)

  7. oh, haha, I read that yesterday, haha, loved it! :)

  8. such a cute little footie pajama you found! I know the feeling, I can't help myself and have bought a couple of cute things for my baby too... we don't know the gender so I stick with gender-neutral things. We are pretty close together in our pregnancies... I'm 21 weeks right now, due in May. :)
