24 weeks 2 days

Penelope is anywhere between 1 and 2 pounds, depending on what website you visit.  She can also realize if she is upside-down or right-side-up now.  If she was born right now, she would have a 40% survival rate; that is actually comforting to me.  Crazy that I'm at the 6th month mark and only 4 weeks away from my 3rd trimester. My feet have started to swell and hurt for hours after standing for a while.

Haven't done anything with the nursery since my mom and dad visited.  I don't think it will be completed until after the baby shower.  Right now, Josh needs to finish painting the crib so we can put it together.  I need to find handles for the dresser and buy some prints off Etsy for the walls.  These are some that I like.

Other than that, not much has been going on since last week. Josh and I were at church yesterday and he actually saw Penelope kicking.  Pretty cool. Oh, I just took a two-week break from school.  I'm pretty excited about that.  Sometimes it's overwhelming with work and school and housework and husband time.  Plus, I'm working almost full-time now.  I still need to check out the information on maternity leave.  Someone told me that once I hit 7 months I can't work more than 4 hours a day. If that's true, my work is going to be hurting.  Maybe I will go tomorrow to find out.

Happy Independence Day to all!
