oh baby | twenty-two weeks

how far along? | 22 weeks

due date: january 14, 2016

baby's size | a papaya or a spaghetti squash

gender | a baby boy!
feeling | feeling great this week! school is becoming a little less overwhelming and things are starting to fall back into a routine again!

maternity clothes | a little of both at this point. i mentioned my experience with my first lularoe party last thursday... and how much i loved it... and then my clothes arrived at the end of last week and i am so, so, so much more in love. softest clothes i now own... the leggings are so adorable and are called butter leggings {i def. know why now! wow.} i have had a lot of interest from friends so i think i will be hosting an online facebook party soon {possibly next week! so excited!!} again, anyone is welcome to join- just add me and i will include you - my facebook} *you can't beat the prices and incredible patterns {or comfort!}. for more photos:  lularoecorissalangheinrich 
 clothes for little girls are also available!! 

workouts | lots of walking and stretching- thanks to ember grey's twelve months of bliss prompt for september. also, starting pre-natal yoga and could not be more excited. i need this. 

sleep | really well!! and so happy about it. 
cravings |  ice cold water and citrus/smoothies are still at the top of my list

fun facts |  he's got more developed eyes and lips, he's looking even more like a newborn. he's sleeping in cycles now- about 12 to 14 hours per day {hint: the times when i am not feeling his kicks!}
movement | baby boy has become so much more active over the past week. mr. monaco was able to feel him move on thursday, september 3 and instantly got teary-eyed. he's been so fabulous lately- helping so much around the house/being so supportive. my mom also felt him this past weekend <3 in addition, on monday night during the ohio state football game, i think he was so excited that college football was back {and his favorite team was doing awesome} that i got a video of him moving through my new lularoe leggings.

miss anything | i really can't complain this week- i am just so grateful for this amazing experience.

best moment of the week | without a doubt, spending time with my best friend/college roommate, meme and her husband, who traveld to charlotte from minnesota this past weekend. and then traveling to lake lure, north carolina to visit with my parents/very dear family friends sunday. i fell in love with the beautiful area of north carolina- we had the best time. we enjoyed delicious seafood, the landscape/flowers looking over the lake and mountains, playing games late night, lots of laughing, and one of my favorite past times- shopping with my mom/lynn. my mom is such a patient shopper-- it's always so fun going with her and exploring shops for hours. lots of memories. plus, my parents are literally glowing with excitement and it melts my heart.
looking forward to | having a free, yet hopefully productive, weekend with mr. monaco {i can't even remember the last time- maybe june or july? maybe. haha} we have plans to run some baby errands, relax, and get some home projects done. last night we ordered our crib!!! can't wait for it to arrive <3

next appointment | friday, september 18

  7. So exciting that your hubs and mom felt baby boy move! Victor only felt Max move ONCE during my entire pregnancy! Max was a mover and a shaker, but when he would feel my hands (or anyone else's hands) on my belly, he'd stop moving. I also had a hard time getting videos of my belly moving...it's like he could sense that he camera was out! Stubborn little bugger, even in the womb!
