30 and 30!

You guys!  This month marks a 30 week Bumpdate and a 30 month update for the dude!  How Ironic and fun! 

How far along? 30 weeks
Total weight gain/loss?  18 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes, all of my pants are maternity.
Stretch marks?  No
Sleep? Sleep is still pretty good!

Best moment this week?  Charlie is really starting to grasp the idea that a baby is in my belly and soon we will have a baby at home with us!  I've gotten some of our gear out like the infant car seat, Charlie is sure to tell everyone "That's the baby's chair!"     
Miss Anything?  Now that the weather is so nice I'm craving cocktails! 
Movement? Yes, big time movement!  Big alien like rolls and pushes. 

Food cravings?  Yes, craving food in general. I feel like I'm always hungry these days.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No, I feel really good!   
Have you started to show yet? Yes!
Gender? Pink or Blue, either will do.  As long as babe is healthy, that's all that matters.

Labor Signs? No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood? Is lazy and tired a mood?
Looking forward to? Our maternity photos at the end of the month, The Rolling Stones concert and being in the single digit weeks countdown!  9 weeks left!

Is growing so fast both physically and mentally.  He is getting taller and starting to lose his baby weight.  His energy level is through the roof and his personality is as sweet as can be.  He is our little sidekick, wanting to do and help with everything.  In the mornings he asks "Can I come to work too?" and in the evenings he wants to know "Can I help make dinner!?".  Every morning when we ask what he wants for breakfast he responds "Milk and chicken and dinner!" every single time, it's so funny!  
Ever since he stopped wearing diapers I don't get him dressed on his changing table anymore. Instead, I sit on the floor and let him step in to his clothes.  This makes him just a little taller than me while I'm on the floor so while he is stepping in to his underwear or pants he makes sure to give me a kiss on either my forehead or top of my head.  Sometimes he says "I love you, Mama." or sometimes he'll say " You're the best Mama in the world!"  I don't know where he got it from but it never gets old and always makes me tear up.  
He is not a picky eater, he'll pretty much try anything we put on his plate which makes meal time super easy!  His favorites are fruit, carrots, salad, any kind of meat, smoothies and hummus.  
He loves being chased, playing hide and seek, wrestling around with Ben and looking for ants and insects outside.  We recently have been finding stink bugs in our apt. so we catch them and before we throw them outside he yells "Go home bugs!".  He loves reading books before bed and is now memorizing some of his favorite books. He loves to sing songs, knows the alphabet very well and counts to 20 with ease.
He is smart, funny and makes being a mom so pleasurable and rewarding.  He is going to be the best big brother, I just know it.

"You're the best little boy in the world, Charlie.  I love you so much!"

Hope everyone had happy Mother's Day! XOXO
