23 Weeks and fun baby goodies!

Here I am at 23 weeks.  People seem to think I look like I'm due soon.  I think they have me confused with someone who isn't 4'11".  lol  Where else is the baby supposed to go but out?  I am starting to get really sore though, so it's time to start some prenatal yoga to help out with the aches and pains.

Tatiana saw this frog the other day when we were at the aquarium, and I just couldn't resist picking it up!  He fits in perfectly with our nature theme, and he croaks when you squeeze his belly.  TOO CUTE!!!

Friday, we headed to BuyBuy Baby to use a coupon that was about to expire.  I had no idea what to actually buy, but decided that this giraffe would be an item that I would definitely purchase if we didn't get it for a gift, so that's what we settled on.  It makes 4 different sounds that you can set on a timer to help soothe baby to sleep: "play" which is a kind of drum beat with animal sounds, "soothe" which is just the animal sounds, "calm" which is a waterfall, and mother's heartbeat.  He also comes with a storybook about the gentle giraffe.

In other news, Zachariah was finally cooperative this last week, and has allowed Jonathan to feel him move!  Previously, he would stop moving the moment anyone put their hand on my belly.  I'm hoping this will mean that he's going to be an easy baby, and a good cuddle will calm him when he's fussy.  With two big sisters and parents who have been waiting for him several years, I think cuddles will be easy to come by in our household!  ;)
