23 weeks with Griffin


*How far along?: 23 weeks 1 day
*Total weight gain?: 11ish lbs...I go back to the doctor next week! 
*How big is baby?: a papaya
*Sex: another sweet boy!
*Maternity clothes: absolutely.
*Stretch marks: Nope. fingers crossed!
*Sleep: Ben says I toss & turn a ton at night; my hips are killing me!
*Symptoms: My feet are starting to swell a little just after being on my feet a lot during the day & my rings are starting to get tight when it's hot out! Maybe it's time to purchase another ridiculously huge fake diamond?!
*Best moment this week: spending Easter with family & seeing G's excited face when we gave him a new train set!
*Movement: Griffin is a mover & a shaker. I can now see my stomach move & Ben felt him a few days ago! Baby boy likes to have dance parties any time after 9pm. I bet we'll be having late night parties in August, too!
*Food cravings: ice cream & milk. So random. I only drink milk when I'm pregnant!
 *Labor signs: hopefully not anytime soon!
*Belly button in or out: in..slowly getting flatter. ick.
  *What I miss: sleeping comfortably without having hip pain
*What I'm looking forward to: continuing to clean out G's new room & organize things so we can get this ball rolling!

I am loving that color blue on you! Sleep is getting harder and harder isn't it?

You and baby Griffin are looking great! Hope he's not a night owl once he arrives so that you can get some rest! Sounds like he already has his days and nights mixed up! :)
