25 Weeks..and Cookies!!

I think I'm going to change up the format a little bit for these posts.  I'm boring myself...

I'm 25 weeks pregnant.  25 freaking weeks.  Gosh I need to get my act together.  I feel like we haven't done anything.  No name, no furniture, no registry.  But then again, I feel like we have time.  Oh...I need to make a list.  Like now.

This week has been fairly intense.  Work has been overly stressful as I have had some personnel issues AND we found out yesterday that one of my friends who had just gotten let go last week died.  It's heartbreaking.  I don't really have any info about it, but my heart is so heavy.  He was just so young and seemingly happy.  It's all very confusing and just so sad.

On a lighter note, I've also been busy working on some cookies for a girl I work with.  She is pregnant as well and is having a beautiful baby boy next month!  Here is what I've been doing for the last three days after work:






I think they turned out really great!  I just hope she likes them!

Also this week I received a lovely package in the mail from my dear sister full of new maternity clothes!  Just what I needed, right?  What a blessing!

Pregnancy wise I have been feeling pretty great!  The second trimester rocks my world.  I'm having some trouble bending over now...and getting up off the couch...but I'll take that in a second over hip pain and throwing up.  Plus, I'm thinking these issues are going to get worse before they get better :)

AND, I'm pretty sure I can feel her moving in there now.  It's a weird sensation that feels a lot like bubbles popping.  And it's really low?  It's not super often but it's noticeable.  So either I feel her or I've been trying to get my husband to feel my own gas.  Hm.  Guess time will tell.

Onto the pics!  25 weeks = first belly pic in our new house!

I LOVE those cookies. Is it just sugar cookie dough and a cookie cutter? What did you use for the icing? I always want to do projects like that but never do!

Sounds like movement to me! A lot of what I feel of our little girl moving is low too. As the weeks have gone on, some of them are a little higher, but mostly low.
LOVE those cookies too! They look so cute!
