Half Baked

How is it that 21 weeks have passed by in this pregnancy? I'm officially (a week over) half baked.
We had our big 20 week ultrasound last week and everything went great. The tech actually moved me up a few days, from July 31st, to July 27th. She said they think the doctors were off by a few days. Our baby boy is a healthy 14oz and growing! He's also kicking A LOT now. I feel him all day - and I can't help but smile every time. Over the weekend we actually started seeing him move - and Jon saw him for the first time yesterday. Every time before that, the baby would stop as soon as I called Jon over...little stinker.

We've been starting to buy things here and there, as well as stocking up on diapers whenever we have coupons. Jon's parents surprised us with the travel system that we wanted and I seriously can't wait to put it together. It's a huge box, sitting in our living room - staring at me.
I've also been buying a few clothes here and there when I come across good deals. Old Navy surprisingly has some really cute boy clothes that are decently priced. I bought three outfits, each $12.99 with an additional 20% off - sweet deal...I'll take it.

I'm quickly growing out of my clothes, which ends up being an "I-have-nothing-to-wear, I-hate-all-my-clothes" ordeal. I have a lot of hand me down clothes that were given to me from friends (thank you!), but they're mostly tank tops. So, mother nature, if you can please warm this weather up, I'd appreciate it.
