Fun and Relaxing Weekend!

This weekend has been a lot of fun. Although we really haven't done much, Todd was off Saturday and Sunday! Saturday we went and bought the baby stroller because they were discontinuing the color we wanted and then went to my parents. The baby got to sit by the out door fire place with us and watch my nieces roast marshmallows!

Today Todd felt the baby kick for the first time! It was very exciting for the both of us. I think it was the orange juice! We just put the stroller together. I think it took a total of 10 minutes to assemble. Easy Breezy!

Here is a picture of Todd with the stroller...I must let you know that the mohawk is temporary! He had to shave it because they raised more money than last year at the OTB in Burleson for Susan G. Komen. He has to wear it pink tomorrow to work! He definitely has to wear a hat when we are together in public! Hope you enjoy the picture!

Married Two Years Today!

I was having a bad day at work today but my WONDERFUL husband of 2 years made everything better! I got an Edible Arrangement delivered to my office at lunch. I was so yummy and really made my day! Thanks babe! I think the baby even liked the fruit...oh and the chocolate of course!




Well to top things off, when I got home I had a dozen red roses and lily's waiting for me! I think Todd did pretty good...ok GREAT! He even cooked dinner but we all know he does that anyways...I'm not much of a cooker. Here's a picture of my pretty flowers...

Food For Thought

So, I was thinking today. I was thinking about how the baby is starting to hear voices. Do you think the baby knows ahead of time if he/she is going to have siblings? Just think...the baby would be able to hear those voices along with the mommy and daddy's. Does the baby even distinguish between the different voices?? It's all such an interesting phenomenon. I know that Todd really enjoys talking to the baby!

What is that....oh, It's the baby kicking finally!

I am now 20 weeks and getting bigger by the minute! The baby went from never being felt to doing flips in my tummy this past week! Baby D is active all times of day now!! At first it was only at night and I was a little worried I was going to have a night owl (which I am not at all)! Todd hasn't been able to feel it but hopefully he will soon! It is the greatest feeling.

I had an appointment this morning and got to see our little ANGEL........Here is the sonogram I got! So big compared to the first sonogram. The heart beat this time was 154 bpm. The nurse said that he/she weights approx. 11 1/2 oz and is 8 3/4 in. long. Below are two of the pictures I got. One is of the whole body and the other is the baby smiling at us! If we wanted to find out the sex, we wouldn't have been able to today because the baby was curled up so tight with all the goodies hidden! We go back on November 11th! They really do need to make appointments closer together. A month is WAY too long for me to wait in anticipation. Even if it is to hear the little one's heart beat!

Below is a picture of the growing tummy for those of you I don't see on a regular basis. It's amazing how clothes fit one week and the next week they are a little tight! At least I have an excuse...BABY! It was early in the morning when the picture was taken so I wasn't awake yet!

We bought our first big baby item this past weekend. Thanks to a good friend, we were able to get a toddler car seat at a really good price! A little ahead of ourselves because we haven't even gotten our infant car seat but I couldn't pass it up. The only thing we have left to pick out is the furniture. Hopefully it will be quick and painless and NOT back ordered!

I got a really neat book in the mail from my mother-in-law a few weeks ago..it has been a great guide to buying baby stuff. Every mother should have it or read it at least!

Around 28 weeks (Christmas), Todd and I are going to have a 3D Sonogram done and we won't even find out the sex! Exciting for me and a bummer for some of you dying to know. I just love technology (sometimes)! We are going to have both of our parents there to share in this neat event! We even get a video to show the baby later and color sonograms! So Cool!
