Bump {Week 22}

 {I know, I know. I really got myself fixed up for this picture. Don't judge!}
How far along? 22 weeks
Total weight gain: 8 pounds. People tell me I still have such a small bump but my clothes and the way I feel tell a totally different story. So keep on being nice people, it's good for these pregnant hormones!
Maternity clothes: Yep! I'd still like to pick up a couple more pairs of jeans and pants. I really love shopping but I hate that while pregnant I need an entire new wardrobe that come February, I'm never going to wear again. It might be different if we were going to have more kiddos but I hate spending money knowing that I won't get much use out of these clothes!
Sleep: I sleep great. However, I took back my bumpnest that the little had stolen and I'm loving it. Also, I'm over the dreams. I must be in a deeper sleep because I can't remember entire dreams, just people or weird places.
Best moment this week: So much movement. Peyton is letting his mama know he's in there. I sit with my hands on my belly 100% of the time while watching TV these days. Peyton is definitely a mover and a shaker, which I love. Travis has been able to feel him moving also! I love that he gets to experience this too! Colson and I went shopping over the weekend and he picked out a couple outfits for his little brother. I'm so excited he's coming around to the idea that he'll have a baby brother.
Worst Moment this week: Emotions running wild. I could do without being so emotional. The smallest thing or words can affect me so much. I hate being emotional. Also, I had such great expectations for the rocking chair that we ordered and Travis got it all put together and I sat down in it with so much excitement only to be disappointed. He made it clear I shouldn't order anything off the internet without trying it out first. He's 100% correct. I tried to justify it with telling him what a great deal we got on it but he said that all doesn't matter if I don't love it. Hate that the man is never wrong. Anyways...I'm going to sit in it and hope that my feelings about it turn around. Ugh, I hope I fall in love with it.
Miss Anything: Leaning over for anything is so uncomfortable. Especially if I have to lean to the right. Peyton must be snuggled up on the right side. Seriously, please don't ask me to pick anything up for you. Colson asked me to sit on the grass with him last night at the football game and there was no way I was going to get on the ground and then try and stand up in front of all those people. I'd really love some energy. I'm exhausted. As soon as I wake up in the morning I consider my day and try and find time for a nap. It's too early to feel this stuff.
Cravings: I bought a bag of caramel apple suckers and I have to hide them from myself or the entire bag would be gone in one sitting. Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Y.u.m.m.y! I'm still loving cake, breads, cupcakes...
Looking forward to: All things fall. This is my favorite time of year and the cooler weather is so enjoyable. The afternoons are still really warm so I'm looking forward to cooler weather that sticks around all day. Also, buying baby boy things! I don't know if I just didn't know where to look when I had Colson or if things have greatly improved but I've found some really fun boy things! I'm excited to register and shop!
