oh baby | twenty-nine weeks

how far along? | 29 weeks 

due date: january 14, 2016
baby's size | baby is the size of an acorn squash -- 2.5-3.8 pounds and 15.2-16.7 inches long 

gender | a baby boy! 
feeling | feeling pretty awesome lately! i love being pregnant at this point- it's been such a special journey. i am in full nesting mode at this point- it's slightly out of control {it would have been more if i wasn't worried about hurting my back again!} in just a few days this weeks- i cleaned out our pantry, garage, every drawer, almost every closet, organized baby gifts, the refrigerator, the freezer. it's crazy. i am a 'nester' by nature and don't sit still for long sometimes... but this is another level. in addition, i just came across this awesome advice: 10 things i should have done before my baby arrived 

maternity clothes | really needing a few more options at this point ♥ 

movement |  he's very active at times and sleeps for long stretches during other periods... 
my love for anything knitted- esp. baby items- is also in full force at the moment {love.}
i really hope to get baby monaco some knitted stuffed friends soon

sleep |  still a night owl and still crashing in the evenings {not a lot of bathroom breaks either!} what's your favorite pregnancy pillow?definitely want one for november, december, and january 

cravings |  lots of water and fruit {oh, and pizza} i made a homemade pizza monday evening using trader joe's ingredients and it was delicious- mushrooms, feta, onions, pepperoni, and basil 
fun facts | baby's getting a little more cramped in there, since he's growing so fast. baby's growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his energy is surging because of it. 

miss anything |  my skirts! i am a very big dress/skirt wearer {pants are once in a blue moon} and although i can still wear a lot of my dresses, no skirts with my baby bump. 

best moment of the week |  it was a simple week, full of fun events out and time at home, too. the perfect combo for me 
how's dad? |  just the sweetest man. 
looking forward to | spending time with parents this weekend and getting baby's room put together. we also booked our 'babymoon' last weekend!!! i absolutely can't wait to spend a weekend with mr. monaco in savannah, georgia. it's one of my favorite cities; we have it planned for november 20-22 and are staying at the cutest little bed and breakfast in the historic district downtown! and am secretly hoping they have some christmas decor up around the city!! 

next appointment: friday, november 6

  4. This is so nice! I kind of miss being pregnant. My son is 4 months old already, and I can't believe how fast the time went. I'm so glad you have energy to organize, and keep moving. I literally has 0 ambition because I was tired all the time. I look forward to more of these posts :) (The Toms shoes are adorable)

  5. Sounds like you and your little man are having a grand old time. Im a bit jealous that you've had little bathroom breaks at night. That was when my bladder started being extremely active when I was pregnant with my daughter. Enjoy every little bit of this wonderful time! Have a lovely time at your babymoon as well.

    It was lovely of you to share this on #Shinebloghop! Wishing you a lovely rest of the day :)
