That means I am in my fifth month already! WOW! Baby GIRL is the size of a Mango (which is approximately 1/2 pound and 6″ in length from head to butt). She is an active little lady! I feel her all day long and love every single little kick, push and turn. There is something so peaceful and reassuring about each movement. It reminds me, I am growing a precious little baby. Sometimes it does catch me off guard and I will say “ohh” and Grayson always says “Mama, you okay? Your baby hurt?” He talks about her a lot and the way he says her name melts us, it sounds so sweet and so perfect. He gives her toys, sings her songs and gives the sweetest big kisses.
As you may have seen in our last blog post, we announced our teeny-tiny is a baby girl … we named her Tegan Shay. We have had her name in our back pocket since June 2013! I think we both just knew one day we would have a girl and a boy. Both our son, and now daughter’s names were the first names we said. They are perfect.
I am having so much fun planning her nursery and converting Grayson’s room into a Big-Boy room! Her nursery is going to follow a color scheme as Grayson’s did.I was joking with my sister the other day, I truly need to exercise self control in the stores, I want to buy everything I see! I love all the cute little girl clothes minus the “Princess” stuff and the character clothing. I want to dress her in things I would wear so probably no cupcake shirts and ladybug pants.
Along with bedroom conversions, I am also giving away clothes of Grayson’s that will not become hand-me-downs to Tegan …. willing to trade for girl clothes! I get a lot of requests for his t-shirts! As parents, we all know dressing our kids in an expensive addiction! I am also looking to trade toys! If you are interested, let me know!
My sister … AKA Aunt Jess, is pretty much the BEST! She is throwing Tegan & I a baby shower, yay! I am having so much fun with the registry this time. I discovered Baby List. I am add anything from any store all to one place! AMAZING! This is a great way for any family to add products they use not just what is available at the typical Babies R Us. This is so great for us because, most of you know, I make almost all of our bathroom products and now I am able to add the ingredients I need for Tegan’s body lotion, wash and diaper cream!
What are your favorite local small business owners? I love supporting small businesses when I can!
