22 Weeks

Lily is about 11inches long this week and weighs in at almost 1 pound. She's about the size of a papaya or spaghetti squash. Oddly enough, this week she is forming tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her lips and eyes are more developed, and most everything is proportionate now. She's looking like a miniature new born!

I am feeling her move around more and more. It still catches me off guard most of the time! Jeremy has been able to feel her a few more times as well. It's a lot of fun to be able to share those little moments as a family.

The Belly at 22 Weeks:

As you can see behind me, Lily's room has seen a big transformation this week! Jeremy primed the board that was put up last weekend and on Saturday Jerry came up to help us install the molding and batten. Just like any DIY project there were a few tricky moments and a couple trips to the hardware store, but by that evening it was all up! Sunday morning we patched the nail holes and now it just needs a coat (or two) of paint.

It's starting to really take shape and we're both very excited to see it come together. Here's a few photos of the progress we made this week:
 Definitely the first time Jeremy's been excited to paint!

 Saturday morning and the moulding is starting to go up!

 Measure twice!

 Because this time, we didn't. Oops! Thankfully it was our only mis-cut.

 The three of us had a good system down. I measured and marked, Jerry manned the saw, and Jeremy installed the batten. It made it go really fast!

 It looks GREAT! We are thrilled with how it came together.

Jeremy plans to finish the priming and painting this week and then we'll officially be done with this part of Lily's room. I'm happy it turned out so well. Thank you, Jerry, for all of your help! We couldn't have done it without you.

Now it's time for furniture shopping!
