20 weeks

20 weeks
I'm halfway through!!!!!!!
Harper is the length of a banana now.

I feel like I am sooooo big right now. I keep asking Scott how I will get any bigger and then he reminds me I still have another 20 weeks to grow. OH MY!
Today I got to have lunch with a sweet friend, Amanda, and her cutie pie daughter Neely. Neely was so sweet during lunch. She just smiled and cooed the whole time. I hope she and Harper can be future friends. I just LOVE having lunch dates with friends.
I got tickled when I got home tonight because my mom sent me a big envelope and inside was no note.......just a bunch of pages out of pottery barn kids. ha! I guess she is trying to suggest ideas for the nursery. I have it ALL planned out. Later this week - I'll share the beginning stages of it.
I also got this precious onesie from Megan. Isn't this the TRUTH? If you like this onesie - you can find other precious ones like it at www.blessedbabycollection.com.
This onesie just reminds me of this verse:
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1.
That is my prayer for each of you who are waiting for your baby - be SURE of what you hope for!!!

Dont worry about getting bigger... Just think it's all about Harper! Love that onesie Faith! It's what it's all about. Without faith and his Grace we have nothing... We are all so blessed. You look awesome and enjoy that belly!

Cindy said...

I love your fruit pics. Too cute. And you are not big at all! You might feel that way, but you are just super cute pregnant. I was a walking house by the end of my pregnancies, but I suppose that's not a comforting thought. :)

Amanda said...

I love your latest pic, you are looking so cute! The faith onesie is perfect, I love it! I am excited to see your nursery ideas!!

The Garners said...

I'm so anxious to see your nursery plans!!!

You are not big at ALL--you look GREAT pregnant...and will all the way up to delivery!

Kelly,
I just found your blog a few days ago on google reader. First of all, you are adorable!
Second of all, the last few sentances of your post today made me bawl my eyes out. My husband and I are struggling with IF and these past few days have been especially hard. Today I felt completely alone and at the end of my rope. It's nice to know that there is a light at the end of this long tunnel.

I can't believe you are already halfway there! That's crazy! And you wonder how you will get any bigger...I remember that feeling. It's a crazy thought! Are you feeling her move around a lot now?

I got to meet Kristen and her mom that you met a few months ago. They were at the Siesta Fiesta. There are pictures on my blog.

Jennifer said...

You look SO cute and you are not big at all!It's so crazy to think in 20 more weeks Harper will be here! Yay!!
I love the onesie! What a perfect gift for your girl!! I can't wait to see what the little princess' room will look like!!

Hollie said...

You are NOT big chick! You look awesome! Harper is going to be one cute little lump of love! I can't wait to see pics of the nursery! Your mom has great taste!

Jacquie said...

You look so cute... just think - you think you grew a lot this 20 weeks, wait til you see how far that belly can stretch in the next 20! It's AMAZING!!

Katie said...

I remember thinking i was huge at 20 weeks...NOW i'm huge!!! That changing table system in pottery barn kids it what we had made for Kaleb's nursery. We LOVE it and would highly recommend it!!!

Kim said...

You look adorable.... And, seriously the nursery is going to be so gorgeous it will be featured in a Pottery Barn catalog!
PS -- When I was pregnant, I outgrew my maternity clothes late in pregnancy. My husband took me to the mall to treat me to some new outfits.... And, the sales lady told me that bc I had grown not only in the front, but also the back that there were no options! :) Oh, women will say anything to each other....
Embrace this special time of pregnancy and don't worry about size ~~~ especially looking as great as you do!

chickadee said...

you look great. i thought you were holding a toothbrush at first. i'm wondering if you are going to be holding a watermelon one day!

Angela said...

Oooh, I just got my Potter Barn Kids catalog today. I love the new stuff. I had to throw it away so I'm not tempted to buy. But their website seems to be addicting too.

Heather said...

Big?? No way. You are definitely not huge. I was huge. I couldn't even drive the last month! Ha! You are so cute. I can't believe you are half way there already. Wow, time flies.

Jennifer said...

Love the faith onesie. I loved onesie's in general.......so easy and so comfy. :) Another favorite are the little Carter's dresses. Oh my goodness, Shelby lived in those for months. LOL

A banana, huh! How cute!

hayden said...

That onesie is so sweet! You look so cute too :)

Alyce said...

You are NOT too big..enjoy it. Although, I think I enjoyed it too much the first time..I gained a lot and was big FAST. The second time..I was wearing my maternity clothes by 8 weeks along...so dear, you look wonderful!!
You are also blessed with an abundance of great friends. My goodness, I wouldn't know what that is like to have a lunch date w/ a different girlfriend so often.

petrii said...

Have a Blessed day,
Dawn

I can't wait for the Hogs to take the field on SAturday! Todd and I already have our "game plan" for when we will watch! I also love cheering for my OSU Cowboys (sorry, big 12) and pro-football on Sundays!
You guys will definitely have some good snuggle time during the playoffs this year!!!
