Ear of corn

24 weeks: Baby is the size of an ear of corn. My baby has caught up with an ear of corn in size and gained about 1/4 pound since last week. (Length: almost a foot.)
I always laugh at the comparison of the baby and a piece of fruit or a vegetable.  Although this week at times I feel like I have an entire piece of corn in my stomach.  In other words, while the baby continues to punch on my lady bits, I can fill it punching at my belly button and other area's above.  This little girl is much more active then my first. My first was typically active at bedtime and then calm the rest of the time. This one is much more active during the day, a little kicking before bed then settles in for bedtime. Trust me I am not complaining.
This week the crib arrived and my daughter wanted it set it up even if we have 15 weeks left. My husband and the little one put it together while I, well sat on my butt and watched.  After it was in place I wondered if this was the best idea for them to share rooms, but it will have to be as we only have a 2 bedroom house. 15 weeks to go or less. In case you are wondering about my math, I will be having a scheduled section during 39 weeks, if I make it that far. Now we just need to finalize the name, decorate her corner of the room and get the rest of the essentials.
Did you hare rooms growing up? Love it or hate it? I shared with my brother until I was 5, I never thought of it as a big deal. I can only hope my kids feel the same way.


  1. I never had to share a room with my brother, luckily;) I don't think it's that big of a deal especially when they are younger. My kids shared a room until they were 3&5:)

  2. I don't remember early on but what I do remember is sharing a room with my sister who is 16 months younger until I was 15!! (By then it was weird at first to be alone....but, I got use to it. ;-)

    My sister has 2 girls that share the same room now...5 year old and a 2 year old...they love it!
