Dear Baby Girl, More work on your room...

My childhood bestie came this weekend and helped me look at bedding for you.  Her hubs and Daddy also moved the furniture around in your room.  Good-bye, guest room/office, hello baby sister's room!  Some bedding I'm trying came in today, and I think it's the one.  I want really soft colors and a traditional vintage feel.  I'm using this bumper:

And these curtains:

I don't like the bedding that came with the bumper so I think I'm going to get Mimi to convert a curtain into a crib skirt.

Here's what you're up to this week {22 weeks}:

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, you are starting to look like a miniature newborn. Your lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and you're even developing tiny tooth buds beneath your gums. Your eyes have formed, but your irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment.

Fine hair (lanugo) covers your body, and there are deep wrinkles on your skin. Inside your belly, your pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

These were my prayers for you this week:

Putting your room together and moving up the crib has me thinking a lot about sleep.  Man, I'm praying that you're a good sleeper!

Dear Bo, Your buddy visited this weekend...

We enjoyed a visit from the Pratts this weekend!  The daddies worked on setting up a patio TV, while the mommies played with you boys (we got some mommy time, too, and went to see Hunger Games).

There was plenty of swinging.

Bath time.

And Hunter surely enjoyed your Cozy Coupe.

He loved watching you.

And you loved making him laugh.

You both enjoyed some Bubble Guppies.

Thanks for the visit, Pratts!  And thanks for helping with the patio!
