Baby Yancey - 25 Week Bumpdate!

Top {Similar} & Leggings - Motherhood Maternity

How far along:  25 Weeks... Time is seriously flying by!

Baby Size:  The size of a cauliflower.  Jack now knows the difference between up & down & should be gaining extra fat & hair!  I hope he has lots of hair when he's born!  I had a head full of dark hair & Matt had none... so, it'll be a toss up!

Maternity Clothes:  Yep!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  All good in tha hood!

Sleep:  Pretty good... I really can't complain!

Exercise:  Proud to report that I have walked 3 times in the last week!  The first day was a bit rough but, I've been stretching & Matt & I walk a little further each day.  I feel good though about finally getting moving!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  The 'ol sweet tooth is still in full force!

Gender:  BOY!

Movement:  He's been a little quiet this last week but, funny enough sitting here typing this survey he's being quite the wiggle worm!  :)
*Update: Last night before we went to sleep Jack was super active, go figure! But, Matt & I both could feel him & then sat & watched my stomach do all sorts of acrobatics!! It was so crazy & so cool!! 

Symptoms:  Starting to feel the added/shifted weight in my stomach.  Does that make sense?

Labor Signs:  Nope!

Belly button in or out:  In... more shallow by the day though!

Wedding rings on or off:  Engagement ring on!

Mood:  Matt says I'm snappy, I say I just want things done... HAHA!  Overall, happy & excited though!

Nursery:  The closet is finished!  I can't wait to share with y'all how we've transformed it!

What I miss:  Nothing really...

Best moment this week:  My brother-in-law & sister-in-law had pulled a lot of things out for us to pass along to Jack from our 2 nephews so, we were able to go through everything this weekend.  There was so much stuff but, we are so thankful for everything they were willing to pass along!

What I'm looking forward to:  Starting the dresser re-do (after the closet is done)!  Aaaand, my best friend miiiight be having her baby this weekend!!  SO exciting!!

PSA... Earlier this week I received my free, yes free breast pump in the mail.  It's the Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breastpump Starter Set.  (I'll probably need to purchase a larger carrying bag & extra bottles but, it certainly beats purchasing the entire pump!)  In case anyone didn't already know, you can get a free (or discounted) breast pump through your insurance company.  I actually didn't even have to contact my insurance company at all.  I simply contacted a distributor through Medela & they took care of everything for me.  Once I confirmed the pump that I wanted, it was on my doorstep within days!  Click here to visit the Medela site & get your free (or discounted) breast pump!  Feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Apple Taquitos {A Recipe}

In an effort to check an item off of my Fall to-do list & to satisfy my sweet tooth that this pregnancy has brought on in full force, I've been on the hunt for some delicious Fall dessert recipes.  After searching, I discovered these delicious Apple Taquitos.  Oh my goodness... I really shouldn't have to tell y'all how good these are but, believe me when I say they are perfection & may be even better when served with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream.  Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla to be exact.

What you'll need...
9x13 baking pan
8 Flour tortillas
1 can of Apple Pie Filling
Cinnamon & Sugar mixture
2 teaspoons of butter, melted

One - Pre-heat oven to 350*.  Lay one tortilla flat & spoon the apple pie filling in the center.  Depending on size, 3-5 apple slices are sufficient.  Roll the filling in the tortilla & place in the baking pan.

Two - Once all the tortillas are rolled & placed in the baking pan, brush the melted butter generously over each tortilla top.  Then, sprinkle the cinnamon & sugar mixture over each tortilla.  {I didn't do it this go-round but, next time will try sprinkling a little cinnamon directly on the apples before they are rolled up}

Three - Place the pan in the oven & bake for 15-20 minutes or until tortillas become crispy.  Once done, remove from oven & serve warm with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!

Note: Husband & father-in-law approved!

Five on Friday!!

Happy Friday Y'all!!


Linking up with Christina, April, Natasha & Darci today!!!

One - First things first... Calling all my fellow momma's & momma's-to-be!  I'm in need of some book suggestions to read to prep for baby's arrival!  I admit, I'm not much of a reader so, I'm looking for some easy reads.  So much of a non-reader that I didn't make it through Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs.  Terrible, I know but, just being honest here.  So, any easy reads to prepare this momma... and possibly even for dad too??

Two - This weekend I'm trying my hand at a crock pot potato soup recipe!  I've never made potato soup & I've also never used my crock pot for anything else other than making queso dip soo.... I'll report back with how it all turns out next week!

Three - If you follow me on Pinterest, I must apologize for the amount of quotes & baby room gallery walls I've been pinning! I just need visuals y'all!!  Anyways, two of my favorite quotes/printables that I came across I had to share with y'all!!
One of my all-time favorite songs at church & one we played at my mom's funeral. I'm pretty sure it's a must for Jack's room! {via}

I just love this quote & how it's printed on vintage dictionary paper! {via}

Four - Speaking of prints... Did y'all see??  Mrs. Shalyn Nelson opened up her print shop yesterday!!!  I could not be more happy & excited for this girl!!  She is truly such an inspiration with everything that she puts her heart & mind to!  Go check out her shop here! I can't wait to order my print... Problem is I can't decide which one I want!!!

Five - Sometimes, Friday's call for a trip back to childhood & powdered donuts for breakfast are in order!
& maybe Thursday called for them as breakfast too... No judging here! ;)

Hope y'all have a great weekend!! We're off to watch our nephews in their last soccer & baseball games of the season! I can't wait because it's been too long since we've seen them & they are growing like little weeds!
