Claire is carrot lengthed right now and I think that has something to do with all her of her stretching and kicking. I'm sure she is feeling a little bit squished but my belly keeps on growing to accommodate her growing body. Since Saturday we have been able to call her by her full name, Claire Olive ZumMallen, and it makes everything so much more real. The cute girl clothes don't hurt much either!
Since then we have also been in search of a new car, my baby Fiat has been a dream but it just is not going to fit all of us. This weekend we plan on going on a hard hunt and also finding some Stone Fire Grill along the way because I cannot get their Greek salad out of my head, mmmm.
Claire's room is slowly coming together, Ryan has built the crib and the dresser. Generous friends gave us their glider, which I love and we received many gifts that we cannot wait to hang on the walls and hang up in the closet. Speaking of the closet, nursery organization is now pretty much all that I can think about, Ryan is not as excited about this as I am but that's only because hearing me go on and on about little boxes to put inside of dresser drawers can't be too thrilling at midnight on a Thursday.
Hope you all have a great weekend, thank you for being a part of this fun time!
You are 21 weeks and growing by the minute, you have blessed us with so many kicks that I have lost count. You even kicked really hard yesterday morning when daddy put his hand on you and said "Good morning Claire, I'm going to work have a nice day". Thank you for that, I know it meant a lot to him. You are already a sweet girl who we adore and cannot wait to see what you look like in person. Right now I'm blending my characteristics with your dads and I really cannot pinpoint how I think you will turn out. Right now you have two different showers being planned for you - one by my mom and my sisters and one by my bestest girlfriends, can you believe it!?! People all around us love you and are so excited for you, sometimes it takes my breath away to think about what a great little world you will be born into. Your dad and I are so thankful for our loving family and friends, but even more thankful for you.
Hope you keep growing and kicking
