22 weeks preggo and a busy fun weekend

Me and Tripp at the start of 22 weeks!

Here we are at week 22! I can't believe how fast this is going and how big Tripp is growing!! My little bump is definitely growing! As usual here is a peek as to what baby tripp is up to this week:

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

I have also read that at this point the baby is sleeping 12-14 hours a day. And boy do I know when Tripp is awake, he is still very active...which is great! Carl has been busy working on Tripp's changing table/dresser and the nursery is coming together. My sister has even been giving us lots of clothes and things that her boys have outgrown. So Tripp's closet is already expanding! We recently received the bedding that we ordered. We really like it. It's plain and simple just like we wanted. We are going to jazz it up still, we just have a few more things to get together. Below is a pic of what we have so far.

We had a busy weekend but had a lot of fun! On Friday my sister and youngest nephew came into town while her hubby and oldest went hunting! We took advantage of the day went shopping and had lunch with mom and grandma. It was a lot of fun. Friday night Carl and I went and baby-sat Joshua. It was some more good practice for us! Joshua even made a nasty little mess in his diaper for us;) Guess he wanted to make sure we are prepared! Carl was a little grossed out but handled it well:) Saturday started off with some more shopping with my mom and sisters...we were very productive this weekend;) Saturday night Carl and I went to some friends of ours wedding. Damian and Nina. They are also expecting and are due 2 days after us...with a boy! We had such a great time at their wedding and enjoyed spending time with good friends and family. Jessica, Nina and I all gathered for a fun photo which we realized was Tripp's, Evan's and Judd's first playdate! So many little boys to be running around soon!! As you will see below, we weren't the only 3 preggos at the wedding....could this be the next baby boom?! ;)

I guess I've blogged on long enough for today! Now it is time to wind down and relax after another busy Sunday full of church, lunching with Carl, grocery shopping and cleaning! We hope everyone has a great week!! Thanks for following the schinde squad this week!

Many Blessings,

Traci & Tripp
