22 Weeks of Baby Jack

Sunday, March 8, 2015


How far along - 22 weeks 
Gender - Boy! 
Weight Gain- 20 pounds 
Maternity Clothes - Of course, and I just purchased 4 summer tops and 2 really nice dresses for $40 this week, off of a momma in one of the mom's groups I am a part of who was selling her maternity stuff! I will be 2 more months farther into summer with Jack than I was with Kirby, so to date I haven't had to buy anything maternity besides 2 pairs of jeans, but I will need some more summer stuff. I think from here on out I will stick with only dresses for the summer that way I have some cute loose fitting outfits to wear after I have him, and maybe just a pair of shorts to wear with my new tops. 
Sleep- Still about the same, just taking me longer to fall asleep and up 1-2 times at night to pee. Although I went to sleep at 9 on Saturday night and then Brian got up with Kirby & I slept until 9am Sunday morning!! I guess my body needed it, let me tell you, pure bliss! 
Best moment this week- We have officially gotten big sister potty trained!! Still some accidents here and there but we are just so proud of her & I really didn't want two in diapers. We also decided this week to cloth diaper Jack! I am super excited about it, I wanted to with Kirby, but never got around to it. We were either going to do the Honest Brand which is what we used with Kirby along with the Babyganics (we liked Honest better). But we decided doing the Honest bundles at $60-$70/month for another 2-3 years just didn't compare to one stash of cloth diapers. Chemical free is the most important thing to us and to save a ton of money on top of that made it seem like the best choice for us. 
Worst moment this week- We tragically lost my sweet sweet Uncle Mark, Kirby called him Uncle Uncle Mark since he was her great uncle. Which has just been very hard on our entire family and something we will just never fully recover from. He was such a special soul & I will miss him daily. Here is a picture of my two brothers (on the outsides) & my cousin Mikey's tribute to uncle Mark (all of his nephews) with three of his guitars. His favorite one was laid in the casket with him. Playing guitar and making beautiful furniture and one of a kind pieces out of wood were two of Mark's best talents.

Miss anything- I can still cuddle with my Kirby how we always do, but holding that 39 pound baby has definitely become a challenge. However, I am not ready for it to be the last time that I hold her so I still do every once in a while, but I definitely miss being able to hold her all the time. 
Movement- This little dude is going to give us a run for our money. Maybe it's because Kirby was such a lazy baby in the womb, but it just blows my mind how much he moves. I just love laying with him while I am falling asleep at night & he is just wiggling away, it's definitely one of my favorite things this pregnancy. 
Cravings- I have been on a Kiwi kick this week (they seriously remind me of sour candy, it kicks that craving in a minute) & I just got myself another nice big bag of Trader Joe's organic Kiwis today that I will have all to myself because Kirby doesn't like them & Brian isn't eating fruit at the moment, score! 
Looking forward to - Some really gorgeous weather coming up the second half of this week and just 10 more days until we get to hear this little ones heart beat again & I will also get my glucose drink to drink before I come to my 28 week appointment. Also, we are almost ready to get started on Jack's room. We have been going through a little rough patch with Brian's work, but he has started up a wholesaling business on the side that is beginning to take off and our future is looking much less stressful and very very positive, so baby projects & purchases will be coming in the next month or so. For now, I am just working on spring cleaning and organizing room by room.
