Baby Room

We finally painted the baby's room! I had been putting it off because the plan is to add on to our house and her room will be redone but I just didnt like that her room for now wasn't painted. It will be at least 3 months until her "real" room is ready, if not longer so we just went for it! I LOVE it and it looks so much better and like a real room now! Its Pink, thats for sure!!!

Ok, yes, that is my wedding dress, from 2 1/2 years ago, it has been up on display in that room before it was the baby's room and I just can't put it away. I am going to put it somewhere before she gets here. I will be putting a rocking chair in that corner so it will have to move. where will it go, that I'm not sure!! I just can't put it in a box so I will have to figure something out. I know its weird but oh well! :)

Time is Flying...

Time seems to just by flying by! We only have 5-6 weeks left until we meet our little princess! It seems like we just found out we were pregnant! It's crazy that the first part of pregnancy goes so slow and then all of the sudden it's like, wow, she is going to be here so soon!!

I am ready for her to be here in the fact that I just can't wait to meet her and see what she looks like but at the same time I don't feel like I have everything done at the house yet! We would really be ok if she came now but I want to have things more organized!! I know it will get done, I just don't like waiting!

This was New Year's Eve (33 weeks)

Justin had me take his picture since I always make him take mine :)

This is 34 weeks, 8 1/2 months!
I feel huge!!


I had to share this picture of Duke, he is just too cute! He seriously got himself wrapped up in the blanket, Justin sent me this picture and I love it! Makes me want to go home and cuddle with him!

I think he knows that something is different, he is usually a 93 lb lap dog and always gets up on my lap when I am sitting in the recliner. Once I was showing I would make him sit or lay on the side of me but I never told him no, I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that he hasn't even tried to get up there with me, kinda makes me sad but I think he knows that he can't sit on my lap anymore!!

He is still getting all the attention though, daily walks, play time and cuddles on the couch and in bed!

People tell me that once the baby is here I will not love him as much or spend as much time on him, I just don't think that will happen to me! I will make sure it doesn't anyway! : )

It's a......GIRL!!!!

Last Tuesday we were able to find out the sex of our baby!! At first they didn't think they were going to be able to tell us because the baby had it's legs closed and crossed!! but luckily by the end of the ultrasound she opened up for us to see! That night we had our friends and family over for the big reveal!

When everyone got to our house they have to vote on if they thought it was a boy or a girl! It was pretty even which suprised me.

This was the set up, pink and blue everything!!

And, the Pink frosting in the middle!!!

we are very excited for our little girl to get here and of course I have already gone out and picked her up some cute things!!


I am really not a patient person anyway, but waiting to find out the sex of our baby is taking FOREVER!!! Our last appointment was 3 weeks ago, I really thought the 4 week wait would be ok, knowing that we would get to find out the sex, but it is 4 days away and it feels like time is standing still!!!

I really don't know how people cannot find out, I could just never wait the whole 9(10) months! Since I am able to find out, I'm doing it! I know they say it's such a great suprise but either way it's a suprise! To each their own though :)

So, next week I will get to tell you what we are having. I really wish I though it was one or the other but I really have NO idea so it will be really fun.

We are having a gender reveal party on Wednesday (we find out the sex on Tuesday afternoon) for our friends and family. I am going to make cupcakes with either blue or pink frosting in the middle! I can't wait!!!


We are so excited to announce that we are expecting our first baby February 22, 2012!!!!
I found out I was pregnant the Friday before Father's Day so it was the perfect way to tell Justin! He couldn't believe it, but it's true!! He was so excited, as am I!

I had gotten this shirt for Duke about a year ago, just waiting for the time I could put it on him, this was how we told people about the new babe to be!!

He's going to be a great big brother

This is the ultrasound from our first Dr. appoinment on July 1st, i was a little over 6 weeks here

This was from the Dr. visit on Aug. 2nd, amazing how much he/she has changed!

And this was from Aug. 5th, just a couple days later it looks so much differet but I think it's just a better picture!

We are so excited to go on this pregnancy journey and wait for our little one to get here. Yes, we will be finding out the sex AS SOON as we can!!
