25 Week Bumpdate

Christmas is almost here, we're now more than 6 months pregnant and we can't believe how quickly this time has passed!

We become more excited every day to be closer to meeting Baby Burm, but this week, with the arrival of her crib and these nursery frames, it's really beginning to dawn on us that she'll also be arriving and filling out our family so very soon.

We can't wait to be her parents, but until then, we'll continue to enjoy our time preparing for her and the time we spend together as a family of three.

Nursery Crib: Union
Nursery Lamp and Pillows: Kirkland's

Nursery Print: TypoHouse

25 Week Bumpdate

Baby Size: Approximately the size of a cauliflower!

Clothes: It felt as though this week was the week that my bump turned into a belly, and now that it only continues to grow, I've primarily been wearing maternity clothing lines like Gap Maternity – and am feeling so much more comfortable now.

Gender: Girl! We still can't believe how fortunate we are to get to be parents to this sweet girl. We have had her name selected for the past decade that we've been together, and we'll be excited to share it with you after she's born.

Mood: Ready to enjoy the next 15 weeks or so that we have until we meet our baby girl, and ready to begin nesting and preparing a nursery for her now.

Movement: I've been feeling her move non-stop after I've eaten and throughout certain periods of the day and night – she still appears to be a night owl like her Dad!

Sick or Queasy: Yes, I've accepted that I am one of the unlucky mothers who has nausea up to the third trimester, but I remain faithful that this will soon pass.

Sleep: I’m continuing to sleep less and less throughout the night due to her activity and my bathroom breaks, so I'm taking naps whenever I can get them!

Symptoms: My appetite has really increased this week, with cravings for green vegetables like brussel sprouts, green beans and salads.

Wedding Rings: On!

What I Miss: Being comfortable napping on the couch and sleeping on my back.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas in the Mid-Atlantic

After traveling back to our desert home in Phoenix for the Thanksgiving holiday and spending time with family and friends in the sun for the week, we recently came back home to snow in the Mid-Atlantic.

It didn't stay around for too long, but that first snowfall was enough to get us in the spirit for the holidays! We decided to make the most of it and head out both to find a Christmas tree and take a winter hike in the snow.

Gloves: L.L. Bean

Sweater: Matty M

Having a few days in the snow also gave us the opportunity to start cozying up our home for the holidays and really sent me into Baby Burm nesting mode – we'll be sure to share photos of both those events soon!

How are you getting in the spirit for the holidays? Share your stories with us in the comments below, or on my Facebook or Instagram.

20 Week Bumpdate | It's a Girl!

This week's post is a special one for us, because this week marked the halfway point of our pregnancy, and because we were also able to confirm what we're expecting – a baby girl!

We are so excited to have the opportunity to be parents to the sweet girl that will soon be joining our family.

We can't wait to meet you and love you so much already, baby girl Burm!

20 Week Bumpdate

Baby Size: Approximately the size of a banana!

Clothes: It's getting chilly outside now that it's November, so I've been getting away with wearing cozy shirts and sweaters, but have also added maternity jeans and pants to the collection now.

Gender: It's a girl! We can't believe how fortunate we are to get to be parents to this sweet girl. We waited until our 20 week ultrasound this week to see our baby again and confirm her gender, and still can't believe our luck!

Mood: Anxious to get through these next 20 weeks so we can meet our baby girl. Although we're very much looking forward to the spring, I'm also trying to revel in these sweet moments that are happening now.

Movement: I've been feeling movements and pressure over the past few weeks, but no kicks or punches just yet!

Sick or Queasy: Yes, the nausea is still unfortunately hanging around, but there has been some marked improvement over the last week.

Sleep: I’m sleeping less through the night, because that's when baby girl is most active (must be a night owl like her Dad!) but am enjoying every wink of sleep I can get.

Symptoms: My appetite and energy are both back this week, and it's incredible feeling like me again!

Wedding Rings: On.

What I Miss: Drinking apple cider, coffee and tea this time of year – I usually love having these toasty and warm drinks all day in the fall and winter, but am limiting the caffeine as much as possible now.
