31, 32 and 33 weeks

We are closing on our house tomorrow morning (!!!!) and things have been just a tad busy leading up to that so this post is a little late. I am really trying to keep up with the weekly pregnancy posts but for some reason I can't seem to stay on top of it lately!

How far along: 33 weeks and 6 days

Size of baby: 20-ish inches, approx 4.9 lbs (I have an ultrasound in a few weeks so they will be able to get a better idea of how big this boy is)

Gender: A sweet little boy

Movement: Lots of movement still going on. More rolls then kicks. And lots of action in my ribs.

Sleep: I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that sleep is just not getting better at this point. I am up and down all night to pee. I flip from side to side all night because my hips are sore. And then add in some acid reflux and pregnancy insomnia and you have a recipe for no sleep. I think this is just preparation for the lack of sleep we will have once baby arrives! So I consider it a training period of some sort. Tying to be positive here.

Maternity clothes: Yes. Lots of leggings and t-shirts.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks are still going strong and actually getting stronger. The past week I have noticed when I get one its a bit hard to talk until it goes away. Other then that and the acid reflux at night I am feeling good!

Aversions: None really.

Cravings: Fruit. I have been wanting apples, oranges, melon and pretty much any fruit I can get my hands on. I am also thirsty all the time for ice water. I guess there are worse things to be craving at this point. Oh and the chocolate milk craving has returned. I allow myself one a day. I figure thats fair.

What I Miss: Nothing really the past few weeks.

Best moment this week: My baby shower! This past Saturday all of the people I love the most came together for what was one of the best days I have had in a long time. I felt so loved and blessed to have all these women in my life. Baby Nixon is spoiled rotten already and he isn't even here yet.

entryway issues

We are about 2 weeks away from closing on our first house! My head is swimming with ideas on how I want to decorate our new home. A lot of things will have to wait until one, we can afford more furniture and two, we have time. But one thing we will be doing soon after moving in is setting up the entry way table Sayer found at a second hand shop this past weekend.

This is what the current space looks like...

We plan to paint this formal living area a light gray to keep things neutral and open. The table/dresser that Sayer found will go between those 2 built-ins over by the front door. Now I just have to decide what color I want to paint it and how I want to "style" it. I have pinned a couple of ideas.
love this color and the gold knobs

High gloss black paint with a white picture frame collage. Simple and classic.

I already have a sunburst mirror.
Love the gray but if we did this would have to pick another wall color.

Navy and gold. Love the leaning mirror.
