26 weeks and baby shower

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 26 weeks
Size of baby: 14.2 inches and 1lbs 14 ounces- Will be 2 pounds this week!
Gender: A GIRL!!! Preslee Bell Turner
Maternity Clothes: Yes for all bottoms and still wearing some non-maternity shirts if they are long enough! I am ready for a change and to wear fall clothes!
Weight gain: 11 pounds
Movement: Everyday I feel my sweet girl and I just LOVE it! Matt loves to feel her too and when she kicks, he points to where he felt it on my belly. I think he forgets I feel it even more from the inside! ha! I love that he gets to feel her so regularly now!
Sleep: As long as I have my pillows in the right spot, I am sleeping great!
Symptoms: Back pain, not a lot of energy and getting out of breath easy!
Cravings: Just eating a lot of everything! The whole pregnancy I have eaten a lot of Special K cereal but now I am up to 2 times a day!
Best moment this week: Getting Preslee's closet organized with the help of my mom! I love to go in there and look at all her sweet things!


Yesterday, I helped host a baby shower for my good friend Emily! We are childhood friends and both live in NWA now and we are so excited to be pregnant together and due only 6 weeks apart!
Emily and Annabel at 32 weeks- Preslee and me at 26 weeks
Emily got so many cute things, including lots of cloth diapers! I love that we are such good friends but so different too... Emily- cloth diapers and no epidural... Me- Disposable diapers all the way and bring on the BIG needle with the drugs! Ha!
It was a Sunday afternoon shower so we just had a few light snacks! Cucumber sandwiches, hummus dip with carrots and pita chips, fruit salad, strawberry cupcakes and some really yummy punch!
The theme of the shower was a bicycle because Emily's husband loves to ride bikes. We had a cute antique bike outside my house with flowers in the front basket but I forgot to take pic!
Mommy-to-be with all the girls that hosted the shower! We had a great turnout and I think Emily really enjoyed her special day! Annabel is a very loved little girl already!

Your baby bump is adorable! You are such a cute little pregnant one!! I hope you are getting some energy back! That is probably a silly comment because I am sure it's still gone:) I was swollen everyday after being on my feet all day and I know you work on your feet all day as well so I will be thinking of you:) The baby shower sure looks like it was a lot of fun!!
