Not a whole lot new this week. More Braxton Hicks contractions, at least a few a day. Still plent of movement on Sophia's part, and still getting bigger. She's still perfectly on track, so very thankful for that. :) I feel so blessed this time around. For one, everything is looking healthy. Also, Nate is so involved. He's incredibly excited, which I LOVE. It's so different from last time. The first time around, I moved back into my mom's house, sperm donor's first thing was "I want a paternity test," (after TRYING for a baby, his idea, mind you), and he was just so not involved. This time, we really feel like a family. We have our own place that we're really making our own, I'm head over heels for Nate, he's ecstatic about becoming a father, and we're engaged. Not that you have to be in order to be a happy family, but it still makes me happy. I feel like even though I had been through some pretty bad times in life, this is somehow trying to make up for all of it. I will of course always miss Blake, but if I'm going to have to be deprived of my son, at least I can have a healthy baby and loving, supportive partner after. I don't know, but it just feels like everything is finally falling into place.
In other news, I have been having fun trying to be crafty and make her stuff. For example, me and my youngest sister, Cheyne, tie dyed some onesies and side snap tees for her, I sewed her a blanket, and I finished up a fitted pocket diaper for her. I want to make more blankets, since that one just turned out sooo cute. Jersey knit was a pain to work with though, so I need to apply some of the tips I looked up (AFTER already having the blanket done...oops). And I also got 12 indian cotton prefolds from a friend for a bit cheaper than I would normally. SO much better than Gerber prefolds. Don't judge, but I keep pulling them out and playing with them, not gunna lie. :) So guess I'll leave you all with pictures of my crafts and belly!
