another week, another bumpdate! and friends...i'm bumping. bumping so hard.
i can officially say this is my hardest, most uncomfortable pregnancy. i've been so lucky up until this point...but what i'm feeling now, and could potentially be feeling for four more weeks is absolutely for the birds.

feeling like my hips are (specifically the left side) coming loose. this makes it super hard to walk.
this super strange pregnancy itch on the top of my hands (specifically my left hand). it only starts at night...and sometimes the itch gets so bad i wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep.
speaking of sleep - ugh. i've been waking up around 3:30 am each morning. usually i can go back to sleep for a bit, but this's not happening. 

i'm just one big barrel of complaints and i can barely stand myself. 

someone asked me the other day if i was ready for baby #3 - and at this point, how could i NOT be? i'm on a runaway train of complaints and misery and i want to get off. 

have i mentioned i'm extremely dramatic.

LUCKILY - the girls are with nana and grandpa (my farmer's parents) on an extended vacation. as much as i miss them, they are having far more fun than anything i could provide. i'm barely moving. even though it kind of seems like they are fully capable of creating their own fun. the other day they came upstairs looking like this...
i adore them...and picturing a third sister in there just makes my heart melt. THREE adorable gals. sigh.

and since the gals are with the grandparents again...the farmer and i "celebrated" our anniversary last night. and by celebrated i mean we made a frozen pizza, ate some ice cream...and he maaaaay have given me a foot and back rub. and i maaaaay have done this...

(pardon the's a screenshot of a video from instagram.)
i mean...why wouldn't i wiggle my way into my wedding dress?

THE NAME GAME | well...i hate to say it, but we are certainly no closer to picking a name. we've been tossing around a list of 15 or so for awhile, but the ones my farmer leans towards aren't my favorite and my favorites don't jive with his tastes. we're really the worst at this...but give us a break. having to pick out a third girl name is kind of hilarious...and hard.
WEIGHT GAIN / WORK OUTS | workouts...let's just get that out of the way - those aren't happening anymore. get real. as much as i'd like to say i'm still marching along, getting my cardio in, but as i left leg feels like it's trying to fall off.

but my weight gain is doing just fine! i'm up to 15 pounds, thanks to the costco-sized bag of walnuts i ate in one week. let me say that again - a giant bag of one week. are walnuts good for your hair?

SYMPTOMS | do we need to go here? itchy left hand. dislocated left hip. no sleep. a real treasure to be around.

SIZE OF BABY | this little muff is about 18 inches and nearly six pounds...maybe more, thanks to the walnuts. 
KAYE'S THOUGHTS | kaye continues to be the sweetest thing in the world. she's so sensitive and sweet and she's just turned into the most phenomenal gal...and i can't wait to see her be a big sister to this next gal. 

you see...when sawyer was born she was almost two and i'm pretty sure she had about zero clue there was a baby in the house. not only was she oblivious, but sawyer also slept for the first six months of her life, making it difficult to realize she was there. that's funny, considering sawyer is so far from a sleepy muffin these days.

anyway - kaye talks to the baby, rubs my belly, and asks a million questions - specifically about how the baby is going to get out of my belly and breastfeeding. 
SAWYER'S THOUGHTS | i've seen a ray of light with sawyer. this past week we were in mccall with my family...and my sister was there with her brand new baby gal. (there were five girl cousins total + the girl in my belly.) anyway, sawyer was in LOVE with this sweet baby and any chance she had to hold or cuddle or pet lizzie lou lou - she was all over it. between our farmer and sawyer i'm not sure i'm ever going to hold this new babe.

PURCHASES | if we're counting organization totes and baby hangers as purchases, then yes...i made some purchases. so exciting! (sarcasm)

but, now that i have the baby clothes hanging in the closet it's clear to me that i obviously need to buy a few newborn clothes. i just neeeeed to. right?

and here are a few more sneak peeks of the nursery...which i still feel like needs just a few more bits and bobs.
CRIES THIS WEEK | i should change this topic to complaints this week...because let's be real...just read above. wow.

ps. did you see the gender reveal video i posted several weeks ago? i still can't get enough of it.
