23 Weeks

How my life's changing:
Well, nothing great to report this week. I have been having leg cramps again. They are really bad in the morning when I get up and I haven't walked in a while. The more I walk the better they are.
Payne is kicking a ton still. If I sit to long he starts kicking till I get up and walk around. I think he thinks he is smashed! He will just have to wait and see how little room he is going to have. I also feel like I look huge. I tried on clothes at Target on Saturday and whooo. The whole dress/skirt thing is going great! I am not missing jeans at all! Then I find really cute shirts and Ryan reminds me that I refuse to wear maternity jeans and not to buy lots of shirts.

Payne's Development:
Another thing is with how much he moves, I think I can see him move, is that crazy or is that real?
He is around 11 inches and weighs just over a pound! He is compared to the size of a large mango.

Payne's Room:
We did get the glidder and ottoman ordered on Saturday morning. It will take 6-8 weeks to come in. I hope that goes by fast or comes in earlier! In 8 weeks I will be 31 weeks pregnant! AHHHH!
Also, since we were in Rogers and Ryan couldn't play golf because of the pouring rain we went to Target and registered. Nothing had changed since we registered for our wedding. Ryan wanted one of everything!! I just laughed and said ok! We are going to register at Babies R Us in Little Rock as well. Are there certain things you think I should and shouldn't register for? If so, please let me know!
Payne's bedding should be ready in less than 2 weeks! I am still trying to figure out how we are going to get it because we aren't going to Little Rock again until June. I can't wait to see it! I am so thrilled!
When I originally wrote this on Saturday, while bored at work, I said that we hadn't gotten a paint color. Well, Sunday afternoon I went and got one. I loved it! We painted the ceiling last night lime green and today we plan to paint the walls. Painting might not be Ryan's favorite thing his ever done! But, he did it and it looks great!
You can see all my painting samples and then the ceiling! It may be a little out there for some. That's ok, it's all about us and our baby!
Upcoming Events:
May 10th is our next appointment for the blood sugar test. I am a little nervous about all of that, since I am not sure what they will do. I wish they would do an ultrasound every appointment! I love to see him.
We are headed to Dallas this weekend with my dad and stepmom for Urban Dare! I will blog more about this later! Though while we are down there we are going to go to IKEA! I am so excited! I really want to look for organization type things.

You will need a bouncy seat and swing. I prefer the baby papasan style. A must for the swing is one that swings side to side as well as front to back. We had the Fisher Price bouncy and cradle swing. They cost more, but worth it. You will need a wedge to put in his cradle/crib, get one with an elevated pad and baffles in case he has reflux. Mylicon for gas is another necessity. :)
