25 Weeks

(24 weeks, 4 days)

As of today I am 25 weeks along. That means that the baby weighs approximately 1 1/2 pounds and is approximately 13 inches long. Being 25 weeks along also means that if for some reason the baby was born now, it has a very good chance of survival. Although I don't think I'll be having a preemie, it is just amazing to think that that is how fully developed this baby is! As you can see in the above picture, I am really poking out now. You may remember the post I did at 20 weeks. I have not been able to wear that shirt for 2 weeks now! Even when I try on maternity clothes, some of them just barely fit me or I can tell that I'd only get about 2 weeks out of them, if I'm lucky. So when I do go shopping I have to take LOTS into consideration. :)
Scott has started working at a chip factory for the summer as we won't have any other source of income from now until AMG publishers re-release his first book (should be November 1st). I admit that I am VERY spoiled! I miss just knowing my Hubby's in the other room all day. But it means I also get to get creative and think of special snacks to have ready for him when he comes home. We will be moving into a place of our own in June, and we are so excited!!!!! :)
Scott and I discovered while we were on our trip that we enjoy watching cooking shows. So, while Scott is at work, and I'm waiting for him to come home, I have decided that for now, while we have access to television (we won't have cable/satellite at our place) I will watch cooking shows for inspiration instead of one of our movies or the other shows that we own. It has been lots of fun and very educational! Last night I learned a new recipe for Egg Salad (it's not your traditional egg salad, and it looks really good!). I plan on trying it within the next couple days and I will try to remember to take pictures so then I can share it with all of you.
One more week to go and I'll be entering the third and final trimester. I'm so excited to meet this Little One. Yesterday it was moving around a LOT all day long!!!!!! That is to say, I could feel it moving all day long yesterday!
I think that's about it for now.

Cooking shows definitely are a fun thing to watch- except when you're hungry! lol!

You look great Kelley!

I miss ya'll!

I know, KallyLyn! However, I have yet to watch a cooking show without being hungry! :) Although usually about halfway through the show I have to pause it so I can make myself something yummy! :)

Thanks! :)

Miss you all too (loved your picture we got!)!

I love watching the baby grow, Honey!

It's great to have these pictures to look back on.

Kelley, your above comment is funny!! :) Yay for a new belly picture. I enjoyed reading the update ... and I haven't had egg salad in a looong time. Now I'm craving some. ;)

I agree, my Love! :)

I'm glad I can make you laugh, Shayna! :) I'm attempting my own version of this egg salad today, so I'll let you know how it comes out! :)
