More On Baby McCall!

First of all, thank you SO much for all of you kind words! We are absolutely thrilled to be starting this new chapter in our lives!

Can I just say how grateful I am (among many other things) for technology? Our families and friends are scattered all over the country and although we wish they could be here with us during this exciting time, iPhone pics, emails, texts, blog posts, etc. make it possible to keep everyone up to date.

Without further ado, here are all of the stats! And, of course, some obligatory bump shots......

~8/9 weeks

~19 weeks

Last night before dinner!
~22 weeks

~22 weeks

How far along: about 22 weeks
Size of baby: I'd guess a little over a 1lb. and about 10 inches (according to
Gender: Yes, it's a BOY!
Maternity Clothes: I just ordered several pieces from the Gap and Old Navy- wayyyy more comfortable than squeezing into my regular stuff. And I'm sure everyone appreciates the change up from the ol' black leggings + tunic/dress/sweater.
Symptoms: I've been extremely fortunate thus far in my pregnncy and overall have been feeling pretty great. I've definitely been more exhausted than usual, but aside from that and some minor growing and stretching pains, I can't complain!
Movement: Yes! He has been really active lately, which I love! It's so comforting to feel him moving around in there.
Cravings: Nothing too crazy. I'm loving all of the Valentine's Day candy thats out right now, but I have always had a big sweet tooth. Oh, and Wendy's frosty's.
Sleep: Changes daily. Sometimes I'll be up nearly all night and just cannot fall asleep. But mostly I just wake up a few times to use the restroom.

We've started work on the baby's nursery, gotten a few of the bigger furniture pieces, and purchased some adorable duds, but there is still a lot to do- registry, child care options, pediatricians, classes, the list goes on and on! If any of you Charleston moms have reccomendations on the aforementioned items, please help a girl out!
