24.5 Weeks!

I have been a TERRIBLE blogger (what's new?) but I really want to get back in the habit of documenting at least some of this pregnancy.  It has been fun to go back and look at posts as I was pregnant with Paisley and compare.  I must say things are VERY different the second time around.  Fatigue seems to come much harder- must be what happens when you are a full time working momma and also chasing around a VERY active 2.5 year old!  I wouldn't trade it for the world though! While being pregnant with Paisley, I would spend many nights lounging on the couch after work and I think by this point in the pregnancy everything as far as her room was well underway!  I feel like I haven't done one thing for this princess yet! I'll start with a few pictures to catch up recently...

24.5 WEEKS!!
Due Date- October 12th (same as Paisley's!)
Size of the baby: About the size of an eggplant (1.7 pounds)

Maternity clothes: Yes! Mainly all. I still wear some of my own tops and dresses but those choices are becoming few...

Gender: It's a GIRL! I still can't believe I will have two girls soon! Schaefer Olivia Hayes

Movement: Don't get me wrong, she does move but I don't think she moves near as much as Paisley did.  Jonathan has rarely even got to feel her move!

Sleep: I'm finally sleeping pretty well again.  I'm very thankful for my maternity pillow that I got for mother's day!
What I miss: A non-aching back!
Cravings: Lately it has been Mexican food!  I have had guacamole 3 times this week already...
Symptoms: Mainly just the back pain and occasional achy joints!
Best moment this week: It is still hearing Paisley talk about all the things she is going to do with her baby sister.  She is so excited- it is beyond adorable!
