23 Weeks...

Okay, so today I actually had make-up on and a cute outfit... and then I didn't remember to have anyone take my picture! BUT I really feel like I've changed a lot in the last two weeks and I couldn't stand NOT to document my sweet Kaki's growth! So after my bath, and at the END of the day... here is what you have...

Not my best, but Kaki looks as cute as ever! :) And by the way... there has been a bit of confusion on how to pronounce Kaki... so to be clear... it is like the color or the pants! Hahaha! Just when you think you've picked an easy name...people (MORE THAN 5) go and pronounce it Cake-y... hilarious! So while I do believe she will be sweeter than ANY slice of cake... her name will be pronounced like the pants and not like the baked good! :)

My sweet girl is definitely throwing some new symptoms in the mix lately...

-I have had LOTS more pain this pregnancy than with Caden. BUT I have found the miracle pain reliever... and it's a GIRDLE! I know, I know... sounds crazy, but it is like underwear but it is SUPER supportive and lifts sweet little Kaki up off of my pelvis and supports me from the back through my hips... it is lovely! And it is the reason I was able to clean nearly ALL day last Wednesday and not be in tears by the end of the day! So there will be very few places I will go without my trusty girdle! :) If you need one... head on over to fitmaternity.com and order yourself one!! :)

-I saw Kaki kick tonight... like looking at my belly ... I saw it! I LOVE that! She is very active most of the day, which I absolutely love. I think that is hands down the best part of being pregnant. AND Justin is feeling her now too! No more shy Kaki... she's starting to enjoy the attention from her Daddy and giving him a show!

-Spider veins... WEIRD! Never had this with Caden either... but they are popping up and getting bigger! YIKES!

-I am LOVING my Leachco pillow... it is AMAZING! I had a Snoozer Pregnancy Pillow with Caden but got my Leachco after he was born for a little extra support and have since pulled it back out for me and my sweet Kaki! Poor Justin is sharing the bed with what seems to be the equivalent of three people! Check it out here!

Kaki is already working on building QUITE the closet... thanks to so many excited family and friends! We have only gotten one thing that wasn't pink and it was RED! :) I love it!! And I think everything has a ruffle!! EVEN better!

We've done some work on Kaki and Caden's new rooms and will be posting updates as soon as they are available! I've had JUST as much fun thinking/dreaming of Caden's big boy room as I have a room adorned in pink and ruffles for my sweet girl! There is nothing better than spoiling your kiddos is there?!

Okay so, I've got no creative energy left to tie this post up in a pretty pink bow... so goodbye, goodnight and happy Bachelor watching! :)
