Catching up with the bump: Week 22 & 23

November 18, 2013



Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. We had a blast continuing to explore our new city. We ate the most amazing ox tail pasta and braised fennel at Edo’s Squid (no reservations, no website….but so delicious that it’s always packed to capacity), one of us sampled the extensive list of beers on tap at 23rd & Main (hint: not me), we hiked the most beautiful trail at Pocahontas State Park (which is only a 35 minute drive from our door! See pictures on Instagram), followed by a boxed lunch car picnic from The Urban Farm House (one of our local faves), and caught up on a few episodes of American Horror Story: Coven. Do you watch this show? I’m not normally into dark and scary anything but this series is done so well that I just can’t help myself. Also, Jessica Lange blows me away. Above are a few bump pictures from the past couple of weeks. I can’t believe I’m almost in my third trimester! This baby thing sure does fly right by! Have an amazing week! -xo

(p.s. a few people have commented on the accuracy of the fruit and veggie comparisons (my husband included)…there’s nothing accurate about these comparisons. It’s just a fun visual way to imagine (on average) how big your baby is on a weekly basis. I usually go to The Bump or Parenting to find my weekly fruit or veggie :)
