27 weeks!

Oh my...how fast this past week has flown by. We had a great Easter & have had a busy week, so I haven't been able to blog all about our fun festivities. I am leaving in the morning to go visit my sister in Houston, so I"ll just have to have catch up blog time when I get back! I'm now 27 weeks! :-)
Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 27 weeks
Size of baby: About the size of a head of cauliflower (14.5 in; almost 2 pounds) He has definitely grown this week! I think I may fall forward if my stomach grows out anymore! LOL
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +15 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yep! Although this shirt is not maternity, but is long & stretchy so it still works! :-)
Gender: It's a sweet baby BOY! His name will be Abram Kirk Gibbs!
Movement: Yes, oh my! He has been rocking & rolling this week & stretching out alot. He kept me up until 1 in the morning last night just a wiggling. Although I missed my sleep, it was really fun to feel him so active. Can't wait to hold this sweet boy! :-)
Sleep: Pretty good...unless little man gets to being an acrobat! lol
What I miss: Being able to sleep on my stomach and being able to bend over without groaning..lol
Cravings: Not really craving anything, but I have loved eating Goldfish crackers all week :-)
Symptoms: I've had some bad tailbone & lower back pain the beginning of the week, but thankfully it has not been bad the last few days.
Best Moment this week: Just feeling him move so much & knowing that he is growing to be an active, healthy boy! :-)

Sewing for Baby Abram

I learned how to sew about 9 months or so before I had Fritter, so I was very much a beginner and intimidated by every project out there I saw, but over the years I have gain a little more experience & love to try new things, so I have been so excited to sew up some sweet things for my baby boy!

I found this tutorial at This Mama Makes Stuff blog on how to take a t-shirt & turn it into a comfy baby gown. Since I didn't have an old t-shirt that was appealing to me, I just bought some cute baby boy cotton jersey knit at Joann's & played around. I'm really excited with how it came out!

Here's a picture of all of my pattern pieces cut out and....


here's the finished product! :-)
It's hard to tell, but it is a light green with little monkeys & polka dots on it.

I can't wait to make some more for him!

I also plan to make a few more swaddling blankets, a nursing cover, and I'm sure some bibs & burp cloths too! Sewing for boys is very different than for girls, but I am having fun finding new projects. If you know of any fun boy sewing projects, I'd love to know! :-)

Have a great Monday!
