Week 22 update

This week Connor is the size of a papaya. He has finally broken the one-pound mark and is about 8 inches long (crown to rump). This week he is able to grip the umbilical cord, which in 18 short weeks will be my finger! He has eyelashes (hopefully his daddy's!) and eyebrows now and even more hair is sprouting atop that cute little head. Hair at this stage of fetal devolment has no pigment, so it's bright white!
I didn't let Matt include my face in this picture because I spent all day cleaning and was GROSS! There are some days when I feel really big and others that I don't. Today is one of those really big days. I have been having a harder time sleeping and the main reason is my heartbeat. There are nights that I feel it all over my body. If I lay on my side, I feel it all through my legs to my toes. If I'm on my back, I feel it in my butt. Quite distracting! Pam (my mother in law) mentioned something about where he was lying, so maybe next time I'll get up and do a little jig to see if that'll move him off of whatever he is pressing on!
The weekend we found out we were having a boy, we painted the nursery. We had already decided on which blue we would use, so we were ready to go!

Matt did the trim while I...

I did the rolling and Snuggles...

was the foreman :)

The finished product:

Another thing we did that weekend was go buy our first outfits for the little man. We have Carter, Gymboree, Gap, and Children's Place Outlets where we live and I am quickly finding out that can be good and bad!

This was my pick. It says Thankful for Mommy. I love this time of year and thought this little onsesie was so cute!

Matt wanted something that he would be able to wear immediately, so he picked out this pack of sports onesies. He was proud of the fact that he was more economical than me... haha. Probably won't be the last time!
On a random note, I made two really good fall desserts this weekend and will be sharing them soon! Hope y'all had a good Monday!
