24 weeks, 3 days

Our son is growing well and kicking up a storm. I had my 24 week appointment ultrasound this time :(. They listened to his heartbeat with the doppler and he actually kicked the doppler while they were doing so. It was pretty funny. The Dr measured my belly and said everything is right on target. My next appointment is in 4 weeks when I will be 28 weeks along. So far things are going great and I am feeling good. Sorry this is a boring post this time with no pics. I just wanted to post an update.

2 years ago today...

It is so hard to believe it has already been 2 years since hubby hit a cow with my car while driving to work one early morning. It is amazing how quickly time passes sure doesn't seem like it has been 2 years. I posted the story last year - you can see it here.

I look back at the pics from time to time, not really sure why because I will never forget that day and the 12 weeks that followed as hubby's broken neck healed.

Nursery Bedding

My brother and his family visited us this weekend so we had the nursery set up as a second guest bedroom. Now that this weekend has passed, it is time to start preparing the nursery... so I thought I would share the bedding. The bedroom is already painted yellow so we wanted to stick with that color and add some others to it. Hubby and I agreed on the bedding you see pictured below. He really likes monkeys and we both liked the soft color palette. Unfortunately for us it was discontinued. I searched for days for somewhere that still had it and I got lucky. A kid's bedding store in California or Nevada (can't remember which) had 2 sets left. I was hoping the bedding was something I could have registered for as shower gifts, but I couldn't chance not getting it. I ordered the set and I'm super excited to get home today because it is being delivered. The set includes everything pictured here except the hamper, rug, lamp and of course the random decorations they use...but I'm totally okay with that. Also on it's way is a set of painted wall art and a painted wooden peg rack for hanging towels and coats, etc. The total set is 12 pieces. The nursery furniture is the same honey finish seen in the picture. I can't wait to get started. I will be posting some before and after pics of the room once it is complete. I am currently 22 weeks and have approximately 18 weeks to go :)

It's a Boy!

We had a level 3 ultrasound yesterday in Austin to check on baby because of some crazy bloodwork results I received. Our appt went great. Our little boy is right on target for my stage in pregnancy and looks awesome. It was so neat to see some features so close up, like his brain and stomach, etc. Technology is awesome and the miracle of life is amazing. We can't wait to welcome our son into this world in February. I am currently 20 weeks, 5 days along! 19 weeks, 2 days to go!!!

Here he is waving at us...
And here are his little feet...
