Weekend Recap

Since I'm using my blog to help me remember highlights from my pregnancy, I figured I should make note of a few things from this weekend. On Friday evening, I drove over to AR to see my mom and dad and to go baby stuff shopping on Saturday. My aunt told me about a huge consignment sale going on this weekend at the end of January and invited me to go with her. I was so happy that we were able to find out we are having a boy so that I could get some good stuff! My mom went a couple of times earlier in the week since I wasn't going to be able to go until Sat and we were afraid all the good stuff would be gone. Unfortunately, my aunt wasn't able to go, so it was just me and mom, but we still had fun. We went to the sale early Sat morning and got some really cute stuff. I think by now Wyndon has over 10 pairs of shoes! (I know what my weakness is going to be, but that really shouldn't surprise anyone ;)) Of course, some of them are a little bit bigger so he won't be able to wear them for a while.

Mom noticed a baby store across the street so we had to stop in there too. They had a lot of really cool/cute stuff -baby furniture, bedding, strollers/car seats, etc. There were a couple of the crib bedding sets I liked, so we were able to get an idea of how I want mom to make the stuff for Wyndon's nursery. After we had lunch, we went on the hunt for some fabric. We finally found what we were looking for at the 3rd store! We're waiting to hear back on the availability of it so hopefully our hard work will pay off.

We also made a stop in Old Navy since the one over there has some maternity stuff. I wanted to try on some things so I'd have an idea of what size I need. On the way home, we stopped by one of my best friends' houses so I could borrow some of her maternity clothes. It was so good to see her and catch up a little even though our visit was short. Needless to say, we were both pretty worn out by the time we got home! Mom and dad had something at a friend's house Sat evening and I wanted to get home semi-early, especially since we lost an hour Sat night, so I headed back to Tulsa.

Here's a mid-week picture in something other than the normal tank/jeans:

This was before church Sunday night

Now a little 'baby' update...
For the most part, Wyndon is typically most active in the early afternoon. That is usually when I feel him moving around and it has been lasting about 30 min to an hour. I feel him randomly at other times, but it is just a kick or two. Well yesterday morning in church, he must have been enjoying the singing and preaching because he was doing a lot of moving and kicking. It lasted all the way through the service and a little at lunch. I was pretty shocked at not only the amount of movement but also how long it lasted! Then in the evening service, he was getting with it again. Maybe he was dancing to the music or something, lol ;)  There were a couple of kicks that were pretty strong compared to the other ones and almost made me jump because it kinda caught me off guard. It is such a weird feeling but so neat to know there's actually a little person growing in there. I can't wait to see who he takes after in mannerisms, physical traits, food likes/dislikes, etc.

On Friday, I had a flight at 10 which turned out to be my only flight that day because of how bumpy and turbulent it was. I didn't really think much about it being bumpy because that typically doesn't bother me (unless it's between week 6 & week 12 and I'm feeling nauseated all the time). Anyways, we had some pretty big bumps where my student and I both came out of our seat a little. Shortly thereafter I felt some kicks. It just kinda makes me wonder what that feels like to Wyndon. I know he's probably used to my 'normal' movements, but I wonder what he thinks is going on when I'm flying and especially if there's any turbulence. I think it'd be cool to have some sort of 'womb' simulation ride where you get in and kinda float around like babies do - just to see what it feels like. Or I might just be weird.... Anyone else ever wonder what the baby feels/thinks? 

Sorry this post was so long... I just want to make sure that I keep good notes throughout my pregnancy so I can come back and read it later and compare future pregnancies. Now that we've gotten through the hardest/most dreaded day of the week (at least for me), I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
