Bump Watch: 31 Weeks

Thirty-one weeks! Only nine weeks left until the estimated due date -- we're down to single digits!

This week's bump watch is going to be on the shorter side, as we've got lots of Thanksgiving prep going on here (more posts to come on that, I'm sure)... So let's dive into the bump watch photo!

And here's this week's blurb from BabyCenter.com --
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
And it's true -- Eggi's really been kicking up a storm these last few days! And his movements have developed beyond the occasional kick or punch. Lately, it's felt like he's stretching, deliberately pushing out with his arms in an attempt to expand his living space... It's a lot of fun attributing intentionality to his movements. :)

And one last bit of housekeeping -- we've updated our blog header! In honor of reaching our one-year blogiversary, and to get even further use out of our beautiful maternity photos, we decided to update our look a little. Fun times with photoshop and some of our favorite pictures!

Watch out -- once Eggi's born, I'll probably get all ambitious with the regular photo-taking and blog header updating... Um, in all the free time I'll have as the mother of a newborn...

But for now, enjoy the new header! And let us know what you think!
