24 weeks

Tomorrow I will be 24 weeks!  Hard to believe this little baby will be here in less than 16 weeks!  WOW!  This pic was taken at 22 weeks!  Hopefully we will get an updated pic this weekend!  
We are still in the process of deciding on a glider for the nursery!  Basically we are looking at these 2 gliders!  The first one pictured is a rocker and swivel chair!  This is NOT the color we like, it will be a cream color!  The chair also comes with a ottoman!  What I like about this chair is that it looks like a typical arm chair that you would put in a study or family room!  I feel confident that we would use this chair in another room of the house later on!

This is the typical traditional glider!  I like this glider a alot!  This chair is super comfy and looks very nice!  It also has a ottoman that comes with it!  Gliders are super expensive and it's hard for me to stomach spending so much money on a chair that I might not use in another room of the house later on!  

I would love to hear any advice from you other mother's out there!

Babies, Valentine's and Races

This weekend we ventured to Babies "R" Us to register for baby stuff!  It was super crowded and LOTS of pregnant ladies "waddling" around!  We were there for over 3 hours!  I must confess we stood in front of the diaper pails for at least 10 minutes discussing which pail would be odor resistant and cost effective!  So many choices to make!  I loved looking at all the baby stuff and can't wait til my shower!  
Saturday night we celebrated our last Valentine's Day as just the two of us at J.Alexander's!  Both Matt and I had been there before but never together!  It was super delicious and me and the baby enjoyed it!  It was nice to have a romantic night just the two of us!
Is anyone else excited about the start of another season of THE AMAZING RACE?  This is my favorite reality show and the one I would most want to go on!  Matt and I decided we couldn't do it b/c we are both scared of heights! haha too bad!  I am excited about this season and can't wait to follow the contestants around the world!

Baby furniture

This weekend we ordered our baby furniture!  Yay!!!  I am sooo excited about the furniture and can't wait for it to come in!  We decided on the Young America 4 seasons built to grow crib and dresser with changing station!  It should take about 6 weeks for it all to come in!  The crib converts to a full size bed!  We plan on this baby using this furniture for a loooong time!

20 week ultrasound

Yesterday we had our 20 week ultrasound!  The baby was moving all around and very active! I wish we could have an ultrasound every day!  It's just truly amazing and unbelievable to see your baby moving around on the screen!  Truly a miracle from God!  They took many measurements of the baby and looked at different organs!  Our doc said our baby looks perfect and healthy!  We were so glad to hear that everything looks great and developing well!
