Joe and Keech LOVE the new couch :)
Joe's favorite part? The ottoman tray. Its all he's talked about since we picked the couch out. Haha
The "Charlie needs to eat" Chair. It was chosen for the specific purpose of nursing. Who says we don't think ahead?
Old yucky couch :(
Old yucky chair. Not Charlie friendly.
So as you can see, total step up! We love it! We can lay on the couch at the same time if we want, I can lay across the chair if I want, Keech likes to perch on the ottoman when the tray isn't in his way, and it can slept on if needed. I think its pretty awesome. And its fluffy :)
Now Charlie updates! So we are now 23 weeks as of Sunday. Her ears are now officially working. She can hear things, and decide if she likes that particular sound or not. Apparently big noises can scare her. So Joe has been talking to my belly more so she knows him too :) Also, she has taste buds and swallow now. Essentially she can taste everything I eat, so I expect hateful kicks if there's something that isn't up to her standards. And this apparently is the time when most women start to swell. Everyone is trying to convince me that my legs and ankles are swollen. I can assure that they're not. I have ALWAYS had cankles. I like to think its from years of dance classes and soccer, but we know that's not true. I'm actually starting to get a bit offended by it. Its like someone coming up to me and going "Woa! Your huge! When are you due again?" I lump those in the same category. Ugh. I usually just smile and go "No, I've always had cankles. I appreciate the concern though, thanks!" Its never sarcastically, and always with a smile :) People just don't think sometimes I think. Also, Keech is protesting this baby thing I think. I did a huge load of baby clothes the other day and put them in the basket and took them into Charlie's room to just sit until we have a dresser, and this is what I found:
