20 Weeks: Passing the Half Way Mark To Sullivan

Quick note: my awesome Mother's Day ended on an even more awesome note than expected. Spencer came to join me in bed for Bob's Burgers and fell asleep with his hand on my cheek as I sang him Twinkle Twinkle/The Alphabet Song. It was perfection! And I woke up to a note that said, "Only 364 days until Mother's Day!".

Today I am 20 weeks along in my pregnancy and I can't really believe it. I felt like I was pregnant for an eternity with Spencer but this time...warp speed ahead! Sullivan is the size of a mango today (approximately 6.5 inches and 10 ounces, according to the goofy pregnancy apps I have) and has eyebrows and eyelids (soooooo creepy to think of him without them like some sort of fish). He's also moving a lot more which makes me happy. I KNOW I shouldn't compare pregnancies, but Spencer was such a wiggle worm that I was waiting and waiting for Sully to get moving. WELL...he's MOVING!

And he likes cake. He did some major acrobatics after I had a slice...or two.

A fun fact is that I'm not at the half way point today, I'm beyond it! Only 19 weeks to go until my scheduled C-Section!! While I'm super pumped for Sullivan to get here and complete our little family, I also know how much needs to be done before then. Two major bullet points are our home projects and Spencer's birthday party. There's so much to be done that if I think about it too much, my eyeballs try to escape from my head, dragging my brain along.

One plus is that I think we decided what to do with the new nursery. We think Sully's room is going to be animal themed. It'll be jungle colors (greens, browns, tans, animal prints) but won't be limited to jungle animals. I've seen lots of cool artwork recently featuring animals, specifically an awesome fox online and an owl at Target, plus I have an awesome print from Phoebe with a Slow Loris and bat. The 2 nurseries will be polar opposites since the Spencer Dome is all decked out Sci-Fi style. I feel good about it.

I also feel good about a trip to Ikea Tessa and I are planning to look for nursery furniture.

Spencer has his 9 month appointment at the Pediatrician this afternoon. I think this means vaccines but I can't be sure. I'm looking forward to hearing his height and weight though I'm not sure how much he will have grown in the 2 weeks since he saw the specialist. After appointments until a week from Friday!!! HOORAY!!

Enjoy your Monday.


  1. Starting a long over-due blog-reading catch-up session today and I greatly enjoy the fact that the slow loris print is featured in the first entry I am belatedly reading. HOORAY for the slow loris! And for him going to live in Sully's room! <3

  2. Yeah! We're totally doing it with like woodland type animals. So...the bat fits right in. And the slow loris is just too cool anyway.
