Getting Ready for Turkey Day!

Well my FAVORITE holiday is right around the corner. I have spent the last two weekends cleaning the house. This is really not necessary since it will only be us, skister and her family and clay, but i still feel the need. I must say I love our house when it is really clean. If only we could keep it this way!

Thanksgiving truly is my favorite holiday. There is just something wonderful about spending the day with your closest family and friends and enjoying a nice relaxing delicious meal. Oh and browsing the Black Friday ads of course! This year will be tough to do without my glass of wine though!!

My last day of work is Tuesday and then I will be off until December 1st. Boy will be off Wednesday and Thursday so that will be nice. We rarely get to spend days off together. And what makes it even better is that you can start decorating for Christmas the next day!! Ha!

Tuesday marks 17 weeks for us. Seems like it has flown by, and we are getting so close to finding out pink or blue. A very close friend of mine found out that she is having a girl just last week. I am so happy for her and her family, and it makes me want to know what mine is even more! :)

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!! Gobble gobble!

Maternity Clothes are MAGNIFICENT!

Who knew that elastic could be SO amazing! Delana took me shopping this weekend and I found some great new clothes that fit!! Whoo hoo!! I felt amazing today at work not having to squish into my jeans. Thank you so much for going with me Skister. You are amazing in more ways than you will ever know. I am so glad that I got to experience this and all the other fun stuff with your help and guidance! Love you!! :)

Tomorrow marks week 16. Seems longer than that, but then seems like we just found out yesterday! Crazy how it all works. I went to the doctor last Friday for a normal check up and everything is still going great. The doctor said that my weight gain is perfect, which is good because I was afraid I had gained too much. She explained all the aches and pains and of course listened to the heartbeat. It is still in the 150s, which is what it has been all along. I also set the date for our big appointment.... the one where we find out pink or blue!! The big date is December 11 at 3:30. I am very excited and I hope that the time goes quickly!! I can't wait to call this child by its name instead of Jelly Bean or Kit Kat or The Baby!

Oh, one last thing, think pink Thursday!! :)

Test result are in!

Forgot to mention that I heard from my doctor last Friday about the results from the First Trimester Screening for Downs! She said that everything looks normal! Measurements and blood work all looks good. We were never worried, but it is a relief to know that the baby is healthy! Thank god! 14 week picture coming soon!

Halloween



Our last Halloween as just us and the dogs has come and gone. I am really looking forward to dressing up the baby next year. Maybe then Peanut will get a break! Yeah right... we already have plans for her to be a rooster! Here are some pictures of her and Stephen. The penguin is still going strong in year 4. I was a witch because I knew I could fit into a black skirt and shirt! Hope you all had a great Halloween.
