Here we are at week 27. Next week is the start of my third trimester of this crazy thing they call Pregnancy. For the last few weeks we have been able to feel and see our little boy kicking. Feeling him move around throughout the day is the best feeling.

Old Navy Tank Top, American Apparel Plaid Chiffon Blouse, and Express Leggings. 

Photos below range from; the very beginning, 18wks, 23wks, and to date at 27wks.

One of the reasons we wanted to find out the gender of our baby was to be more prepared for his arrival. Now that we know we are having a boy we can start to build his wardrobe accordingly. I had to have two ultrasounds around week 20 and 21 so it has been confidently confirmed twice that we are expecting a boy. 

Outfit above from Baby Gap. Shirt below from Baby Gap and Jeans from Old Navy.

Both outfits were purchased from Old Navy. 

We love stripes!

Nathan and I have been hard at work clearing out and painting the second bedroom for our little man's bedroom. The room is still a work in progress but we are very happy with the way it's turning out. Can't wait to finish the project.

Before we started painting photos.

After! Paint colour is, "Big Sea" from CIL Paints.

Artwork we found at IKEA.

Major cities N8 and I have travelled. Hung in order of our first visits to each.

My parents have been in town visiting and today we walked along Queen street to fabric shop for baby blankets. My mom is planning to sew receiving blankets and a few crib size quilts for our little man. Here are pictures of the fabric we found. Now I can't wait to receive the finished products. Hope our boy will like them as much as N8 and I do. 

Fabric pictured above was found at the first store we checked out. This car and truck printed fabric will be used for receiving blankets. 

This Superman and Batman fabric will also be made into receiving blankets. 

For one of the quilts my mom is making this Superman fabric will be used for one side. 

This Batman fabric will be used on the other side of the same quilt the the Superman fabric above is being used for. I'm calling it our Superhero quilt. 

All three types of Star Wars fabric will be used for the second quilt.

Even before I was pregnant I purchase the oversized chiffon plaid blouse pictured below. I was inspired by my favourite parisian fashion blogger, Denni from ChicMuse who was wearing an oversized black and white vertical striped blouse from American Apparel in a post on her blog. Now that I'm pregnant and my belly is growing larger every week this chiffon blouse has become a much needed staple in my wardrobe, more than I thought when I was initially purchasing it. Now that I'm starting the third trimester of my pregnancy and my tummy is expected to double or almost double in size, this top may just be large enough to wear until the end. 

With the potential of longevity and enjoying the style of this American Apparel blouse I purchased it in the colours, Port and Blush today. They may not be colour appropriate for my "Spring" skin tone, but they have a romantic feel to them and the colours are great for Fall. Now I just need to pick-up some tank tops that will go well underneath and fit over my expanding belly.
