26 Weeks

Another four weeks have flown by, which means it's time for another belly pic!

I don't think my belly has grown that much since 22 weeks, but I can certainly feel Baby Shep moving and kicking a lot more. In fact, Josh and I have both seen my belly move when she weird!!

According to "What to Expect When You Are Expecting," Baby Shep now weighs more than two pounds and is approximately 15 inches long. However, with Josh's height and the measurements from our last sonogram, I have a feeling she is longer than that already.

We have been working hard at getting the house ready for Baby Shep's arrival...slowly but surely crossing things of the huge to-do list. This weekend, we bought material for the nursery curtains (which my wonderful mother is going to sew), and Josh put the crib together (which his parents bought for us...thanks, Gary and Betsy!).

Here are a few shots of the progress...

Stella and Louie were both very curious and stayed in the room the whole time he was putting the crib together.

Luckily, the crib was pretty easy to put together. And I only had to help a little bit :).

Note that only half of the nursery has been painted at this point...thus the reason the nook is still yellow.

Here is the (almost) finished product. I will post a final photo once we have added the mattress and bedding, which we have ordered.

Below is a sneak peak at the bedding. I feel very cool because this bedding was featured on two different nursery blogs after I purchased it!

I can't wait to see it all put together!!


  1. Oh, hello, excuse me while I DIE OF CUTENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!


  2. Love the bedding!!!! Nice job Josh for putting together the crib, can't wait to see the completed nursery


About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
