Movin' on...Down

As I mentioned in the last post, we moved this weekend from a third floor apartment to a first floor apartment. Yes, that's three moves since March 1st. We moved out of the house we were renting when we got robbed near the end of March and moved into the third floor apartment on April 1st. When I found out I was pregnant, I decided it was going to be very difficult to cart a baby, stroller, groceries, etc. up three flights of stairs and it was also going to be a big hassle to gather up the baby everytime Tucker (our Yorkie) wanted to go outside. The first floor apartment has a yard, so I can just open the door and let him out. We're totally moved in and everything is put away except we still have to hang the curtains and pictures. We also got the baby bed put together but I don't want to post pictures of it until I actually have the nursery finished more.

That's pretty much all we did this weekend is move and we also went to a baby shower for Sarah, who I have mentioned several times on this blog. She and her husband, Jamie, are adopting not one, but TWO babies in the next few months. Peyton (a girl) is due in November and Baby #2 is due in January and they will find out whether it is a boy or a girl in the next few weeks. We had a great time at the shower and it was awesome to finally meet Sarah in person after "knowing" her online for a long time.

This week is my last full week of my internship. It's over next Wednesday. I'm getting to watch a murder trial this week so it's really exciting. I've really enjoyed the internship and feel like I've learned a lot.

Toots is moving a ton lately. I feel him all throughout the day and when I wake up at night. Now it's getting to the point where I can see my belly move from the outside when he kicks. For my belly picture this week, my shirt I usually wear was dirty so I had to put on a different one. I don't think I look much bigger this week, but we'll see what y'all think.

And here's what's going on with baby this week (ignore it saying "she"):

Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and the week is starting off well so far. Sorry for all the delays in posting!
