|Dress: ASOS | Necklace: Vanessa Mooney|
HIS SIZE: 17-19 inches long & 4-6 pounds; the size of a cauliflower blossom
WEIGHT GAIN: 25 lbs; my belly is getting HUGE!
SLEEP: Off and on; seems like I sleep good for a few nights in a row and up at 1AM on others.
SYMPTOMS: Ryann had the hiccups all the time during the third trimester and I have been patiently waiting to see if Ashton would get them, too. On Monday night, I finally felt the rhythmic movement that was no doubt him hiccuping in utero. It is the sweetest (and somewhat odd) sensation.
STRETCH MARKS: None but I have been packing on lotion!
MOVEMENT: A lot
THREE THINGS I AM LOVING RIGHT NOW:
1: The Happy Planner - Let me preface by saying this is the first planner I have ever purchased, unless you count the one I used to have to get stamped in middle school. My skepticism about planners has always been pretty high as I am a "digital" kind of girl. At the suggestion and high recommendation of my friend Shelly, I decided to the give the "paper" planner a try. I am hooked! I have already done such a better job of being purposeful about planning my weekends and week nights! Of course, I still keep my iCal up to date, but this has been a great addition. Not only do I keep up with important family events and personal dates, I am also using as place to document my daily gratitude journal and goal setting. This planner (the exact one I have) is gorgeous on the inside and fun to work with. I even bought a few of the sticker packs and spend time with Ryann planning out our free time and letting her help pick out the stickers. I am so impressed with these that I bought one for my mom and another for a friend.
2: Malibu Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner - As a natural blonde, I dread the winter brassiness that my hair goes through each year. I have tried a lot of "blonde" and purple shampoos and nothing has been as effective as Malibu Blonde! Not only does a little go a long way, it is free of sulfates, preservatives, parabens, gluten and fragrance. It is gentle enough that I use it on Ryann's hair, too. She think the electric purple color is pretty spectacular!
