28 Weeks

How far along: 28 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: We will find out next Friday 
Maternity clothes? Yes
Sleep: Okay...
Best moment this week: Our first baby shower thrown by Tony's class!
Movement? Got to start the kick counts this week. I did my first one yesterday. The way it works is: you pick a time of day that baby is most active and see how long it takes to feel 10 movements. I have an awesome app on my iphone that makes it really easy. It starts a timer and everytime you feel a kick/movement, you press the kick button. It automatically stops at 10. Anyways, yesterday she kicked 10 times in 3 min, 55 sec. Not too bad! (You are supposed to call L&D if you don't feel 10 kicks in two hours)
Food cravings: Water and iced chai lattes
Gender prediction: GIRL
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss: Philly rolls and deli sandwiches
What I am looking forward to: Only 4 more days of school until summer! Bring.It.On! 
Milestones: We are officially in the third trimester! 
Things I've been experiencing this week: Carpal tunnel syndrome, major heartburn last night, slight feet swelling, and NO energy after being active all day 
Showing? Yes! 
Size of baby: Size of an eggplant, 13.6-14.8 inches, and 1.5-2.5 pounds (the numbers are the same as week 27, now its a big range weights and lengths of babies at this point)
What Baby is up to: She putting on more and more fat, which from now on all of her new weight gain will be due to.  She is also blinking her eyes now :) 

We had an AMAZING first baby shower on Monday. The amount of work that was put into it by his students, class paras, and the parents is incredible. It looked absolutely gorgeous when I walked in and I was stunned to see our nursery glider and ottoman sitting there, all put together and everything! The kids made a cake that was decorated with pink frosting and bath toys. And believe it or not, there was another beautiful cake there from a store with a cute little design. They had a wonderful lunch prepared and gave Kenadie tons of presents. Needless to say, it was so much more than we ever could have imagined and we feel so blessed to have so many people who already love this baby. I wish I had more pictures from the shower (we will get them from everyone soon), but for now here are the ones taken from our phones...
The students decorated the board, so cute! 

Kenadie's presents! 

I will post the other pictures as soon as I have them! I can't wait to show them off :) 

Tony and his dad painted the nursery this week! And they put together the crib yesterday, so now we have her crib, one dresser, and the glider in the room. All we have left is the long dresser which will be used as the changing table. Can't wait to have it all set up. It's definitely moving along!
