Bumpdate: Week 24

How Far Along: Bumpdate = Week 24. Real Life Time = Week 25. 

Maternity Clothes: Yes. I'm wearing a good mix of maternity and non. Although my non-maternity is stretched to the brim in the belly area!

Gender: Baby Girl. And have I mentioned? We have a name: 

Other contenders:

We like color names. Unfortunately, our last name is Green. Boo. But we are head over HEELS for the name Lyla. So precious. Not sure on middle name yet...

Movement: This little gal is a mover. I'm feeling her everyday. And I love it so much. It always catches me off-guard. And I pay attention to nothing else going on around me. 

She had a major kick while I was teaching once, and I stopped in the middle of my sentence and blurted out, "Oh my! What a kick!" Haha. 

Sleep: I have to say the sleeping thing is the one thing I've enjoyed during this pregnancy. I absolutely LOVE it. Bedtime is 9:30 every night. 

What I miss: Being able to lift things. And move around a lot. I have a feeling this summer is going to kick my booty because I am going to want to accomplish SO much...and simply can't. 

Speaking of summer...While my kiddos were working on a math project, I decided to make a summer to-do list. This should get me through the first couple of weeks. ;)

Cravings: Still nothing too exciting or crazy. And, I am feeling the need to do a whole post on nutrition, eating, and weight. But, not sure if I want to. Let's just say my doctor is a BIG stickler on weight gain and really upset me this week. 

Other crazy symptoms: Major intestinal issues. And I'll leave it at that. 

Size of Babe: Eggplant

Best Moment this week:

1). My hubs surprised me with flowers during the week. It was an early Mother's Day/Happy Teacher Appreciation Week gift. He's so cute because he planned to send flowers and bring me lunch to school...then he realized all of my parents were already taking care of all that for T.A. Week. 

2). Teacher Appreciation Week AND my first shower thrown by co-workers. I was one spoiled cookie last week! (And I'm going to provide a whole post on this...)

3). Got to see my very best friend before she and her hubby move to Uganda. The one who had the amazing wedding.

Aww you look so cute and your name is awesome! And silly doctors and their expectations. Don't let him/her get you down!

Um, we really are cut from the same cloth.... I am obsessed... OBSESSED with Lyla. It was our name until someone said "Ky & Ly" and I couldn't get over how dorky they sounded together, haha... but, if we ever have another girl? Lyla it is. Love it!!!
