Baby Notes: 21 Weeks & It’s a…

I am already so late with this post, I am going to get straight to the point because I know you all are waiting on the gender reveal and nothing much has been going on lately. Baby has opened up a club in my belly. Every night, there’s a party goin’ on at Club Tiny Human. I wish I didn’t have to pee so much, but eh what can you do when you have a baby burrowing and stretching in your crotch? I go through bouts of having sore shins and weak knees (usually as I’m gaining another lb) with occasional foot swelling when standing too long, but other than that everything’s great.

    Exciting! As much as I really wanted a girl, I must say that it’s nice having two boys. So far mine get along frighteningly well, and I hope they have a brotherly bond throughout their lives. My four brothers sure do, and in fact are closer than I am with them.

    Plus you’re ahead of the game with being prepared with the goods! I barely bought a thing for Jude, which was nice,

    • Sheena says:

      It’ll be exciting to see them play together and do boy things… while tearing up the house, lol.

      My registry is so plain. I figure I’ll stop by the store and pick up some things as needed. He’s def gonna need a coat and hats since we don’t have those in newborn sizes.
