Baby Bumpdate: Last of the 20's

So, Silas turned 2 this week! I am working on an update for him with more pictures than is truly necessary, but I figure you like the pictures and it's a good way to show Silas' blooming personality :)

Here's some belly pictures and details to tide you over while I sift through 5,000 pictures of Silas:

 Silas: He's Linus and Pig Pen from Peanuts rolled into one :)

The chalkboard still has birthday stats on it, so I decided to use the "2" that is still hanging in our kitchen from Silas' party. I may cry when taking it down...hormones.

How far along: 29 weeks...30's here I come!

Total weight gain: Technically, 19 3/4 but I'm rounding it up to 20lbs. The belly is measuring right on time even though I've gained more at this point than when I was pregnant with Silas.

Maternity clothes: Yes, and searching for more. I wish there were better small-medium sized, cute maternity clothes online or at thrift stores.

Stretch marks: None and hopefully it stays that way.

Sleep: Pretty good even though I'm up a couple of times each night. I'm definitely hitting that third trimester tiredness!

Best moment of this week: Silas started hugging my neck and pressing his face against mine and saying "Aww!" and his favorite new thing at mealtimes is to "cheers", hitting my glass with his, taking a drink, and then saying "Aahh!" at least 10 times. It's just the cutest thing ever!

Miss anything: The ability to run after Silas easily and running in general. I love running in the fall, so I'm missing that this year.

Movement: Very much! I am starting to be able to tell what's an elbow or knee.

Food cravings: Just food in general! I have eaten a lot of apples and grapes lately.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

Have you started to show yet: Yes and apparently I look huge to strangers. So many people have commented to me, "You're not due until November? You have a ways to go." while looking concerned. Thanks random strangers for making me feel like a house. :/

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: No, but quite a few Braxton Hicks.

Belly button in or out: Outish.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Moody still, but I think it's just being a little more tired and feeling like there's never enough time in a day to do what needs to be done, like cleaning the house while playing with Silas while wanting to take a nap.

Looking forward to: There's a Sandra McCracken concert we will be going to on Friday night and I have a Stella and Dot meeting in Nashville that should be a lot of fun :)

Oh and did I mention Elijah is head down as of this past Thursday?! My doctor checked a few times by palpation and the placement of his fetal heart tones and we were all very excited. I'm just hoping he stays that way!! Thank you for your prayers and keep them coming!
