Week Twenty-Nine

Week twenty-nine gave us the opportunity to go to a bridal show with my sister and mom ... that was quite the experience. You would think that as a vendor when you saw a guy and a pregnant girl wearing wedding bands walking around a bridal show you would assume they were married. But not at the Jackson County Fairground bridal show, they just kept asking, are you the bride, do you guys have honeymoon plans yet? We needed shirts that said we are here to carry the swag bag, eat free cake and offer opinions. Geesh. But overall it was a fun afternoon. While we were back in Concord we picked up a bassinet that two generations of my family has slept in. It needed to have a little update before the third generation could rest comfortably, so we added some nice fresh white paint, a new bassinet skirt and fresh new mattress. Now that it is finished it should have at least another few generations of life left in it. Here's hoping the bassinet brings us lots of restful days and nights. Mrs. Whiskers has been quite the curious cat lately, she visits Lilly's room at least once a day and walks the perimeter, investigating the bassinet, the crib, the dresser and the curtains. Then she plops down in the middle of the room and takes a nap facing the doorway. We are not too sure what she is thinking in that kitty brain of hers. Last week when we were taking pictures for the 28-week mark, she couldn't keep away from the activity, so I wrangled her into a picture with me.

29 weeks: Baby is the size of a butternut squash
Your baby is as big as a butternut squash, weight wise -- about 2 1/2 pounds. (Length: a tad over 15 inches, head to heel.)
