24 weeks and 2 days....Belly shot

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

24th week!


I cannot believe that I have made it this far! Time really has flown. I just pray everything continues to go as well as it has. We have our Hospital Tour this Friday, which I am really excited about...that will make it seem all the more real! I also noticed on the confirmation letter that they mailed me that all "CHS" employess can attend any class for free.... the tour was free to begin with, but there is a breastfeeding class that I was thinking about taking that was $30. I may call and sign up for several classes just b/c they are all free! (-: I mean, I was not gonna pay money for a prepared childbirth class when I have already had 3 babies, but if it's free...well, maybe.
On an even more exciting note, hubby told me on Sunday night that our nerighbors Tisha & Neecy just recently found out that she is pregnant and pregnant with TWINS! They have 2 little girls who just turned 3 and 5 and apparently were NOT trying to get pregnant....he said she was REALLY ill and finally went to the Dr to have it checked out and wa-la, was told she was pregnant with twins! I know they were shocked and surprised, but they are great people and love their family and are gonna do wonderfully! I am so excited for them!

Reese

I just had to add this on....my son did this to our lab Reese this morning while I was here typing away on the computer in Meghan's room. I turn around to look at what he is so very proud of....I just had to snap a picture with the camera phone!

Reese is the sweetest, most tolerant dog I have ever known! She just sat there & took it, even as I snapped away with the camera.

room updates!

The baby's room is progressing more and more...it's so exciting!!! This past Friday night our friend Joe & our neighbor Mike helped Shane move the existing ceiling fan to the new center of the now smaller bonus room and install a new ceiling fan in baby's room! Mike also did all of the electical wiring for us, so we now have a working light switch in the baby's room as well as 4 new outlets on the wall that Joe is building us! Joe also worked some more on the closet and is almost done with the framing on it...we need about 4 or 5 more pieces of lumber to finish it up. Then, we need the drywall and the doors and moulding. Finally, I will get to paint....I think I have decided on a pale yellow that matches the crib bedding perfectly! And I think I will make a Valance for the window out of some pink decorator fabric that is on sale at the fabric shop....normally $20/yd, now is $11/yd. and then hang white sheers underneath it. I tried to take pictures of the progress with my canmera phone (since we cannot find the cord to my digital camera at this moment....) but the pictures just don't do it justice. The angle isn't wide enough first of all, but here they are...

Ok, just the loft for now. Its taking too darn long to upload from my cell phone for some reason! I will post more soon! (it is a bit cluttered and such right now, excuse the mess!)
Ok...got a few more pics added:

Baby's Room finally started!!

My good friend Karen's husband Joe is building the wall for us (and closet etc!) for the baby. I am super excited, he got started today & with a few hours, had the framing all up! It looks like a room now! (-: He will be back tomorrow to do the framing for the closet. Next we need to move the existing ceiling fan over to the new center of the "loft" and install a new fan in the baby's room, then drywall. Here are some before & after pictures from today:




Nestle at 11 weeks....so cute!

Another Craigslist deal....

I am loving me some Craigslist lately! (-: Several months ago I saw pictures of a former co-workers newborn baby girl on facebook and they had this swing....I immediately fell in love with it & thought "if I have a girl, that's what I want!!" I looked it up on "Babies R Us" and it is $159.99 plus tax! Yikes, kinda high for a swing that will only be used for a few months. Well, I found one on Craigslist, mint condition, for $99! I went & got it today!

Crib Bedding

I have been busily preparing for baby over the past several weeks. I am slowly but surely building up a nice sized All-In-One cloth diaper dash....I am totally addicted to diaperswappers.com ! Also, I got a fantastic deal on crib bedding from Pottery Barn...It is the Daisy Garden pattern in green. I bought it from a woman on Craigslist for $45. It is in like new condition!! Bed skirt, bumper and quilt!!

I found a brand new matching sheet on E-bay for $11! Here is my picture:

We bought the lumber today to start making the bedroom for baby...I am excited! My friend's husband will be doing most of it and said he can start on Monday or Tuesday! Yeah!!! I am thinking of painting the room either a pale yellow or pale pink when its done. I am also wanting to go look for a fabric that coordinates with the bedding & make my own curtains. If not, I can always buy the matching "Daisy Garden" valance for $25 on PBK.com
I am 21 weeks and 2 days now...she is moving around & kicking like crazy on a regular basis now. It's pretty amazing. It seemed to start right at 20 weeks. My next appointment is on 2/10. Hopefully everything will still be A-OK. I keep thinking this is all a dream and something bad is suddenly going to happen.....)-: I need to post some belly shots, but have been so lazy about taking many! Ok...I just snapped two on the camera phone....
