Another month down and only a few more to go. I'm not sure if it's possible, but it looks like Clare is actually bigger at 6 months than 7. Maybe it's the time of day, or my shirt, or...who knows. All I do know is this girl better come out weighing like 10 lbs because momma is getting huge. My stupid belly button popped, which totally grosses me out. That didn't happen with Tully. It stayed nice and flat. So now in addition to worrying about finding a shirt and pants that fit, I have to find something that doesn't show the huge elastic maternity band AND my belly button. I should invest in muumuus.
And here I am with Clare vs Tully at 7 months. Major difference.
Have you seen those Halloween shirts for pregnant moms? Or pictures of painted pumpkin pregnant bellies?
Not going to happen.
We got all of Tully's clothes moved to his new closet and dresser, so Clare's room is ready for her stuff. As soon as we buy a mattress this weekend, I'm going to put the bedding together, arrange the furniture and figure out what I'm going to do about a rocker. The rocker from the nursery is currently in Tully's room, and although he doesn't require rocking to sleep, we do sit in that chair to read to him, and I really enjoy rocking him sometimes before bed. He's pretty busy and has never been a snuggly baby. Sometimes when I rock him, it's the only time I can get some snuggles in. We are planning for Clare to be downstairs with us in the master bedroom, so I really need a rocking chair there for nursing while she's little. Then I'll need the chair in her room when she transitions upstairs. So that makes three rooms with three rocking chairs. Seems a little absurd and not budget friendly.
Other than finding a baby book for Clare and picking up some newborn diapers, I think we have everything. We'll be ready to meet her in December for sure!
