Kelley Belly 2.0 (20-27 Weeks)

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted last.  This blog has definitely been put on the back burner lately, and for that I apologize.  So much has happened in the last several months but when I think about when and how I need to start sorting it all into blog posts, I get overwhelmed and just stop.  I figured the best excuse I could probably get away with was, oh you know.. that whole growing a tiny human thing.. ;) 

With working full time (and sleeping HALF the time), peeing ALL THE TIME, focusing what's left of the day to giving Everleigh some mommy-time, to prepping the nursery for our baby boy all of the times in between... things have definitely been nutty around our house.  On top of all that we've been adding projects that weren't even on our original "to-do" list, like buying a new TV for the living room.  Normally that wouldn't seem like a big deal to most but it required a whole new media cabinet below.  And wouldn't you know it wasn't a size you could just find and buy at any old store.  We actually had to do a little research to find what we (sorta, kinda) wanted and then had to modify it.  (Once again, a blog post on THAT coming soon too....hopefully ;) 

It's like we're opening one can of worms after another.  And that's cause the "nesting phase" hasn't even hit full force yet!  

Regardless, I'm back---ish.  No promises for consistent blogging but I've got a long list of things I want to post about, I just need to find time to GET IT DONE!  ;)  

Until then, I thought it would be fun to see how the Kelley Belly has been growing since I took my first "bumpie" 7 weeks ago.  Seems like Baby Boy Kelley has made a major jump in growth during the last 3 weeks.. swelling up not only my belly BUT my face and my hips and my thighs and yeah.. everything else.  

And to think we still have a LONG ways to go.. 

(I'm currently 27 weeks, 4 days...with a scheduled c-section tentatively set for 38 weeks)
