27 weeks

Our little Kate is 27 weeks along.  I feel like I'm nearing the "safe" mark.  I just keep thinking "stay in there for a little while longer" to get to that safe time.  She's opening and closing her eyes and sleeping at regular intervals (at least for now!).  Did I mention that she's opening her eyes?!!!  I'm just amazed at this whole process.  Her lungs are now functioning, though at a very minimal level.  Sweet angel, I can't wait to see her in April!

Baby's size: 14 1/2 inches and almost 2 pounds, like a head of cauliflower.  
Cravings:  ice cream and Mexican.  Okay, this week I had both.  Brian went out at 9:30 and got me a small pint of Ben and Jerry's from the gas station (in his pajamas, poor guy).  Last night we went to this great Mexican place in DC before the hockey game.
How I'm feeling:  pretty good.  I have at least one Braxton Hicks contraction every day, no matter how much I'm relaxed.  It feels like she's pressing out on me as hard as she can.  It is very weird and makes me wonder if I'll go into labor on my own.
Sleep:  I sleep great!  
My favorite part of this week:  When Harper is asleep, I like to walk into Kate's nursery and just look around.  It is so peaceful and sweet.  I also taught Harper to say "Kate."  She has no idea, but it is cute.

Planning:  Brian picked up all of the furniture on Friday night and put it together over the weekend.  We got the same furniture (but in white) as Harper because I did a lot of searching and it is just my favorite.  I kind of figure if the girls eventually want to share a room, I can paint Harper's furniture to match and they'll have a cute set.  The cribs both eventually convert to full beds.  Anyway, the furniture and bedding are set.  I still have window treatments and a rug.  I've picked out the curtains, but I'm going to wait and bargain hunt at Home Goods for a rug.  

This weekend we got to go to DC for the Capitals hockey game.  Brian's work had a suite so we had free tickets.  Brian loves the Caps, and I just go to hang out with him.  Beforehand, we got to go eat Mexican (oooooh yeahhhhh) at this great place called Oyamel.  I love living so close to DC and so many awesome restaurants.  

The caps won!
