23 Week 3 day Update + Bernadette

I can't believe how far we've come on this journey!  It's starting to seem more real each day that our little peanut is on her way soon!  It's so exciting to think we're going to get to meet her in less than 4 months!  (Whew!  When I counted that out just now I was like, "Wait! I thought it was more than that.  It's super soon now!)  I haven't blogged in awhile, so this post is going to be a bit of a brain dump.

Not much is going on here other than the waiting game.  I've been faithfully taking my medicine to induce lactation and start pumping in about another 10 days.  I'll have to report back on that soon.  I also bought supplies to make a baby blanket for the nursery.  Some of the fabric of the quilt will be some vintage napkins that we used at our wedding reception.  I'm also mixing it with some fun new fabric.  I'm not a great seamstress though, so I'm hoping it turns out cute.

B tells me me that the baby has been moving around a lot, especially at night.  She's finally started to feel her kick.  No other news other than that.  

Lastly, a fellow intended mom and blogger Bernadette had twins in India.  One of the babies is still in the NICU after 100+ days....and they need to come home!  She's been there alone this entire time without her husband b/c he needed to stay home to work.  Now they're needing some financial assistance to get her and the babies home.  So for anyone who wants to donate, you can go HERE and learn about it.  Her brilliant, positive spirit are so'll know what I mean if you read her story on her blog rasta less traveled.
