Week 14: Fruit, Baby names and the most FAQ

Week 14:
Here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

1. We officially have a 3.4 inch lemon according to The Bump's fruit scale.
Also according to The Bump our little lemon is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue developing. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.

2. Sleeping for two has let up.
Thank goodness. I was getting more than my fair share of beauty sleep.
3. Meat aversion still present.

4. Stealing peaks of baby nursery decorating ideas.
The only decision made so far is that I want the walls painted with this pattern (Owen is really excited to figure this one out):

Babies R Us My Baby Sweet Pea
and our baby definetely needs a chandelier:

Babies R Us Daniella Cocalo Nursery

5. Picked out some baby name options:
We've always loved the name Cooper and have had the name in mind for the last 8 years. Besides loving the name it also holds some extra sentimental value. Not only is it's Owen's best friend's last name but it's also the married name of my mom's best friend that I was named after - Melissa Cooper.

We've contemplated girl names for years - like 7 years. Mom and dad visited a couple of weeks ago and under the shade of the gazebo with Sonic drinks in-hand (of course!) we landed on the name Grace. I love it. The meaning. The reference to Grace Kelly and Will & Grace. And of course that when she's a baby we can call her Gracie. Awww.

6. Most asked question: Do you want a boy or a girl?
As of week 14 this is our official answer:

Kande: Either. I would love a boy first so our girl can have a big brother and I love those tiny men. But I also want a girl, for all of the girly-girl reasons I can think of.
Owen: Wants a boy because he thinks they'll be easier for the first. Also, he said he needs to secure his future cub scout. He does say that as long as there isn't too much pink he would love a sweet, cute little girl just as much.  

About 4-5 weeks until we find out!
