Getting very close!!

We cannot WAIT for our little Ellie to be here!!! We are so ready - though her nursery may not be just yet. :) just one more month to gland we will have a little tiny baby girl. Sometimes it's so hard to believe it! But all the onesies and adorable outfits covering our living room right now are making it much more real. :)

How far along? 35 weeks 2 days
Baby's size: the average for 35 weeks is 5 and 1/4 lbs... Pretty sure she's a bit bigger than that, but close
Maternity clothes? YES. Or just giant giant t shirts and sweats
Stretch marks? Sadly, yes. Have some pretty bad ones on the under side of my belly where most of her weight rests. Hopefully they will fade!!
Sleep: good in between the difficult and sometimes painful rolling over, and getting up to use the restroom. Getting to be not so much fun.
Best moment this week: picking out some clothes for her, seeing Clint fall in love with little outfits for her, doing the tiniest laundry ever and marveling athow small size newborn really is!! (have had wonderful showers since last post as well, so so special, we are so blessed!)
Movement: she's still a good little mover and never stops for too long, but definitely must be close quarters in there
Food cravings:  Not really. Still drinking milk all the time. Wanting to cook.
Anything you loved before that you absolutely cannot eat anymore?: Nope!
Have you started to show yet: people stare at me in public as if I should not be out. They elbow each other and say "look at her" in Spanish as if I don't understand them. It's weird but kinda fun :)
Gender prediction: girl girl girl, our house is full of pink and ruffles and cuteness!
Labor Signs: nope, not a single Braxton hicks, and she is still super high up
Belly Button in or out? Flat/out. Stretched to the limit!
Wedding rings on or off? Off! Got another even bigger fake ring to wear. Ugh.
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy. Mostly very happy and excited. Happy tears threaten often, definitely have my moody moments though!
Weekly Wisdom: Newborn outfits don't look like a human can actually fit into them. More like doll clothes!
Milestone: not sure about her, but our to do list is finally starting to dwindle down. 4 weddings left, wrapping up our editing, nursery slowly shaping up, getting so ready!!
