We're rolling right along here into Week 23! This week has been pretty mundane around our household. Jimmy and I have been working a lot and have been on different schedules which has made for a quick but uneventful week. 😁 He's prepping for a business trip this week and I'm prepping for five days off with nothing to do. Such is life. 

Our picture this week is pretty comical if I may say so myself. Truthfully, we threw it together this morning and had a friend snap it while she was over our house! This whole bump date is pretty mashed together honestly. We're tired and I was wearing leggings and a t-shirt right before this. But this is real life people. This is our life day to day with a little on the way. Such a small task of taking a weekly photo has become just that these days, another task and it's getting harder and harder to keep up with our working schedules. I didn't even check to make sure we both looked okay or notice the Jimmy's RB face, so here it is, 23 weeks in the flesh! 😂 It doesn't get any realer than this. Heck, Jimmy isn't even wearing shoes!  I can only imagine our little gal will inherit her dad's good looks and attitude when it comes to family photos! (Insert shrug emoji here <----) 

I'm starting to show more and I can feel her moving so much more as the weeks go on. It's so crazy how there is legit a living, breathing baby in there growing away! My next appointment isn't until next month and then we'll have just ONE more monthly appointment left before we start appointments every two weeks until she gets here!  She'll be here before we know it, for heaven's sake its almost November! Time is happening wayyyy to fast for my liking! 😭

How Far Along: 23 Weeks and 6 Days
Total Weight Gain: +2 lbs - She's starting to FINALLY poke out! 💓
Maternity Clothes: I caved and bought two dresses from PinkBlush Maternity online. My sister's bridal shower is coming up quick and I have two weddings we're attending in November! 👰
Sleeping: I have had the worst time falling asleep this week. 😭 
Best Moment This Week: Having the next few days off to clean the house and binge Netflix episodes.  
Movement: She's moving pretty much all the time. She immediately stops the moment Jimmy tries to feel though! 
Food Cravings: Breakfast burritos! I have a guilty habit of buying them once a week when I get off shift at 3AM. 🙈
Sickness or Health: I've been feeling pretty good but lately I've had some headaches so I'm trying to drink more water. Probably not helping my salt intake with my burrito cravings!   
Mood: I've been moody lately, <---- guilty! 
Pregnancy Wisdom: Baby Morgan is the size of an ear of corn this week. 
Weekly Milestone: We received her glider in the mail ↓ , we just have to pick out some little odds & ends and her room will be complete! Stay tune for a nursery post closer to her due date! 💖 

Amongst the craziness of working, I did come home to a nice surprise, baby's glider came in the mail! Kudos for Target's quick delivery! I ordered it Sunday afternoon and it was here the very next day! I heard knocking on the door at 9AM after working a long night shift and I said, ahh heck with that and went back to bed. Low and behold as I was walking out the door, I ran smack dab into a HUGE box. Jimmy had to take it out of the box just to get in the house because it wouldn't fit in the doorframe! 

This week Target had a major baby sale offering gift cards for $100 and $250 purchases, so it was a no brainer when I signed on to their website and saw this glider marked down an additional $45 dollars. We have been very fortunate to have been able to buy the things we wanted for our daughter's room at such great prices, we have stayed well beneath under our budget so far! 

This weekend has been a lazy one for us for sure, like I said I have been living in leggings and pajamas and plan to for the rest of the time being until I go back to work Wednesday. Jimmy will be gone the majority of this week so I plan to do a full house cleaning if the dogs cooperate. I wish the cool weather would cool down, we're been having high temperatures still and lots of rain! ☔💧We are taking my nephew to SeaWorld tomorrow for their fall event, and as expected it's supposed to be hot & rainy, I'll be packing my rain jacket in hopes of staying dry! 😳

I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend as the holidays are approaching us so quickly! 💕 Here's to 24 Weeks as of tomorrow!
