I think spring is finally sticking! We're going to the zoo tomorrow (why am I still up?!). We have been playing outside a ton, getting sunshine. Even though I'm beyond uncomfortable most of the time I'm trying to get out there with the kids, go on walks, etc.

As of Friday I'm in week 33! We're just a few days away from May so soon I will be saying, "I'm having a baby NEXT MONTH". It is flying by for everyone else. To me I feel like I've been pregnant for forever. I get a big bump pretty quick but the last week or two it has really started to feel heavy.

Little one rolls and kicks up a storm. My daughters are fascinated watching their little sibling distort my stomach. Sometimes I get a foot that rolls really close to my side and it actually tickles! Most of the time I feel what I believe is the baby's knee at belly-button level. I can almost always poke around my belly button and feel a baby part (and of course baby reacts when I start poking around - so much fun to not have the placenta in the way!).

Baby is starting to not like it when I stamp (Judah was the same way). It's loud. I put a pillow around my belly and tie it on with the tie from my robe. I look ridiculous but it helps a lot and baby calms down. So we're getting close to closing shop up for maternity leave for a bit but I'm trying to make a bunch of pre-made (non custom) jewelry. If you have NO IDEA what I'm talking about check out my ad on the left sidebar for JoyBelleJewelry on Etsy. That is my business and shop! I make and sell the most wonderful stainless steel stamped jewelry and gifts.

Okay end of shameless self-promotion.

Alright if I don't want to be a grouchy lioness myself at the zoo I better go get some shut-eye.
If you're on Instagram find me as @joybellejewelry and you'll hear from me more often, ha!
