8 Months Pregnant!

Compare with 23 weeks in same church outfit by clicking HERE!
How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain: 19 lbs!
Stretch marks? Not yet...knock on wood!
Sleep: Requires lots of pillows around me and a potty break around 3 or 4 AM.
Best moment this month: Feeling so very loved. Matt has unpacked countless boxes so that I don't have to lift heavy things or bend over. My family has been taking care of me and is always helping me out. My ward has been so wonderful and I just feel like the luckiest girl alive :)
Movement: Still constant! She is our crazy, active, bouncy babe. Recently she moves her elbow or knee in a circle around my bellybutton. It's hilarious to see & feel!
Food cravings: Lemonade, oranges, apples/apple cider, baked goods.
Gender: Girl.
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Moving quickly. Haha!
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery :)
Monthly Wisdom: A lady told me that as a pregnant woman, it is my right to go to the front of the line at the post office and bank. I didn't know this! I still couldn't bring myself to walk to the front when I was at the post office the other day...I just waited forever like normal. Ha!
Milestones: Ada responds to her Daddy's voice and dances to music!

Baby's now the size of a honeydew!
Things are heating up inside as well: Baby may grow up to a full inch this week alone, and her brain is developing like crazy. Pretty soon, she'll be able to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing. Also, her bones are hardening, and she's started to keep her eyes open when she's awake.

So one of two things has happened here.
1. They have our car confused with the neighbors on the other side that blast metal music late at night.
2. They are referring to the night we were drilling down squeaky floorboards before the new carpet was put in.

Either way...
At least we know how to spell!

Ada's Crib!

The other night we put Ada's crib together!
Mommy & Ada taking a break :)

Matt showing off his handiwork while Sandy rolls around...standard.
We love it! I can't wait to get the bedding :)

Sandy's New Home!

After living at my mom's house for 12-13 years, Sandra Lucille Johnson Miller has moved!
She now resides with Matt & I :)
Here she is sniffing out her new digs.

She's out to discover!

Look at that speckled tongue hanging out! She was so curious and trotting from room to room.

All pooped out after inspecting every inch of her new home.

I think she's gonna like it here :)

29 Weeks...7 1/4 months

Here's a picture of my cankles! They appeared after 4 hours of sleep and 8 hours of packing, cleaning, and moving in 105 degree heat.

Here I am the day before the big move, taking a break from packing & the heat in the Hammett's kiddie pool. It was HOT! We will never forget the time we moved during the worst heat wave of the year!

Trying to be a good sport and smile :)

How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain: 15 lbs!
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Yes, please! Naps after a day of hard work are lovely.
Best moment this week: Having a classroom full of first graders say, "Awwwe!" in unison when I told them my baby is a girl :)
Movement: Is constant! She's crazy. I love it. I was pushing her elbow (possibly shoulder?) yesterday and she was fighting back.
Food cravings: Nothing too specific as of recent. I just like food in general :)
Gender: Girl.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Not being winded after walking up stairs!
What I am looking forward to: Wearing my old jeans.
Weekly Wisdom: They need to turn the A/C on in Sacrament Meeting. There are just too many hot bodies in there for a pregnant lady to handle!
Milestones: My mom bought Ada's crib for us yesterday! Can't wait to put it together :)

Baby is now the size of a squash!
Baby's energy is surging, thanks to white fat depositing beneath her skin. And since she's growing so fast (weight will triple by birth), things are getting kind of cramped in the womb. What all this means for you: Get ready for some more kicks and jabs to the ribs.

Poor, tired hubby.
