Alright, just for fun I thought I’d take some bets on the weight and delivery date for Baby Boy #2! Post here or comment on my Facebook post. I will have to decide what the winner will get….any suggestions? Important details:
Baby Boy #2 Due Date:
July 5, 2012. Due date was bumped up a week due to measurements during first trimester- it was originally July 12. I tell everyone I am due “end of June” though mostly for the purposes of making sure to wrap up things at the office before heading into the July 4th holiday weekend. And because secretly I think (and hope) I will deliver early but not TOO early…..want the baby to be “cooked and ready” of course. But this mamma’s instinct has a hunch that I cook babies a little faster? Maybe that is my respite since I puke all throughout my pregnancies into the third trimester. =) Although we will see if my “bet” turns out to be right!
Past Pregnancy History with Julian:
I delivered at exactly 36 weeks with Julian, he was 6 lbs 4 ounces. He came out healthy and screaming!
And now…some more fun stuff about Getting Ready for Baby Boy #2!
So in February we revealed the first initial of the name…it begins with an A – we had quite a flurry of Facebook comments on my post. The winner of the name guessing content will get something fun too. =)
Below are some custom made framed prints that I ordered – also from GirlieSmile on Etsy – ready to be hung once we get Julian’s room completed and move him out of the nursery.
The wall color for Baby A’s nursery will be light aqua- same paint and using the same furniture as Julian. We are going to move Julian’s decorations like the geccos and the stars, etc. into his new room and customize the room for “A” with other stuff to make it “his”.
So if you picture the above room, with a clean slate and just the wall color and furniture, below are Baby “A”‘s new things:
This was custom made from same Etsy vendor GirlieSmile for I think $20 or $30..can’t quite remember what I paid:
New Crib Bedding Set for Baby “A” is called Jumping for Joy from Kenneth Brown. Snagged it for $60 at TJ Maxx HomeGoods. (normally $150).
The above is not a photo of our house, I stole this off the internet so you could get an up close view of the blanket from the crib set with grasshoppers – and the Jumping for Joy theme.
Also snagged this Jumping for Joy lamp for $15 at TJ Maxx HomeGoods (normally $30):
And here is the rug for Baby “A”‘s room:
This photo makes it look sort of like it has purple near the center- but it is more of a blue hue. I just found it on the internet for sale for $800??? What? It was 10% of that – $80 at where else? My favorite store TJ Maxx HomeGoods. Score!
And if you have read this far, I will reward you with the latest belly shot. Do I look big yet? I think so…. =)
And here is a comparison shot in same outfit, I was a LOT smaller back at 17 weeks!
Lastly, here I am with Julian at 30 weeks. Definitely more “round” this time around and my belly is bigger! Does this mean that Baby “A” will be bigger? I was a vegetarian during my pregnancy with Julian….and did yoga like twice a week up until I delivered. This time around – I am eating everything in sight and sit on my butt at work.
Thanks for reading! Remember to leave a cast your bets on his size and weight and guess Baby “A”‘s name!
