Bumpdate // week 18

How far along? As of Christmas day I’m 18 weeks! Almost halfway to meeting baby Penny ๐Ÿ™‚

Gender? Girl

Weight gain? 11 lbs

Maternity clothes? Not yet, just sticking to leggings.

Sleep?ย Weird dreams but other than that sleep has been wonderful.

Best moment lately? Getting cute baby clothes for Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

Food cravings?ย Fresh strawberries with angel food cake and whipped cream!

Movement? Tiny feelings that I’m guessing are baby girl but nothing too distinct.

Size? She’s now the size of a sweet potato. (My other app says she’s the size of a croissant!)

Symptoms? Just hungry haha

Looking forward to?ย My mid pregnancy scans to see how she’s measuring out!


Hope you have a wonderful weekend!



Holiday gift guide for Baby!


Gift guide number 2 is here! This was my favorite one to make so far because I’m obsessed with all things baby right now, obviously ๐Ÿ™‚ especially baby girl stuff but I did my best to keep this guide mostly gender neutral!

Cotton bodysuit & pants – The cutest simple outfit that I already ordered for baby Penny ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuffed Owl – These jelly cat stuffed animals are the best!

Knit Cardigan – Im a sucker for any knit baby clothes and this cardigan comes in bunch of colors so it can be gender neutral in grey or brown.

Sophie Giraffe – The perfect teether!

Pink polka dot pants – Need these for baby girl!

Woodland animal puzzle – Maybe baby doesn’t do puzzles yet but its cute and colorful and they can just chew on it right? haha

Pom Beanie – What baby doesn’t look ten times cuter in a beanie?!

Board Book – A must have ๐Ÿ™‚ & I plan on reading to all my kids even when they are tiny babies.

Triangle knit pants – More cute pants that are gender neutral too!

Bla Bla reindeer dolls – These might be a little pricey but I think the deers are so cute for Christmas!

Baby Smith!

ย ย ย ย ย ย 

Jake and I are so extremely excited to announce that Baby Smith is finally on its way! We cannot wait to be parents and meet him or her in May! Its all I can think about everyday, and what I’m going to eat next. lol

I had a feeling I was pregnant the week before I tested because I had weird intense cramping that i’d never had before and I kept googling it and every website said it was implantation cramping. So I waited a few more days and then tested and sure enough! Jake was still asleep so I decided to try and plan some cute way to tell him. Well after a few hours of not really being able to come up with anything and getting way too impatiant I pulled up a picture of a shirt that said “Be nice to me, my wife is pregnant” and I showed it to him and asked if he wanted me to order it for him. This is how that went….

Jake – “Yeah but when you are pregnant”

Me – “Ok so should I order it now then?”

Jake – “No! When you are pregnant…”

Me – …..”Ok I guess I should order it then….”

Jake- “NO!! Wait till you are pregnant…….Wait……are you pregnant?!”

Ding ding ding! Cue all the happy tears, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love him and this little baby ๐Ÿ™‚
