16 weeks=4 months

=I look pregnant. Kind of. :)
This is what happens when your husband is like twice as tall as you, all the pictures look like someone stood on a chair!
All is well with the babe, we got to hear the heartbeat last week and of course that was magical. We go for another ultrasound on January 8 to find out the gender!

We are hooked.

We have seen the movie twice now and borrowed the book from a friend. After both racing through it we went to the store and bought Twilight and New Moon because we just wanted to read them again and again. Upon checking out at Barnes & Noble, the cashier said to me, "I took the liberty of including a gift receipt for both books."


Apparently young adults are not supposed to be devouring reading these books.

Also, we were trying to use cash this weekend so when we went to buy the books I used a big stack of one dollar bills and a few stacks of quarters to pay. And he still thought I needed a gift receipt?!

Yesterday we got a very special surprise in the mail. A Moby wrap! This came from Uncle Brian and Aunt Tamara who used it for Ethan and are sharing the good with us now! We were so excited. Well I was more excited at first because Josh initially did not know what it was. Then we both tried it on and I wore it around the house while I was getting dinner ready. With a stuffed animal inside it! Ok we are dorks but we are excited to wear our baby and be able to get work done at the same time!

Here is a preview of me wearing a monkey...

I doubt our baby will be this small but that's ok!

Have a great Friday!

have heart

We got to hear the heartbeat today. It is always so reassuring to get these reminders because I get so worried in between the doctor appointments that something is going to happen. And would you believe I didn't even ask what the heart rate was so there will be no guesses if this is a boy or a girl. We will find that out by ultrasound in January! Other than that, everything else looks good and the doctor said that Josh can help out with the delivery and hopefully will be able to "catch" the baby! Is there a better word than catch for this? I feel like saying catch means it is trying to get away. HA!
In other excitement, I just saw this today and think we will need one. Josh said he doesn't want a wimpy looking stroller, I think this will do it!
Have a good day!

I totally felt like I was stealing when I found this great deal a few weeks ago. My first pouch sling! It was on clearance at our local Target for only $7.46!! And the only one in my size. It is so fun and it is reversible. I wore it around the house that night when I got it I was so excited. Seriously.


Hey if you would like to see what we have really been up to lately, check this out.
Have a great day!

cloth diapers

We plan to use cloth diapers when the baby comes so I took advantage of the Black Friday sales at JoAnn's and stocked up on flannel and other supplies. We are planning to use fitted diapers with a cover. I made three diapers on Friday as soon as I got home and got the fabric washed. It was a lot of fun and also a great learning experience. The pattern I used ended up being pretty big for a newborn so I am going to need to modify that for the rest of them. Here are a few pictures. I got about 6 or 7 different flannels but here are just the 3 that I started with. They are so cute!!
Lacey helped me pick out the fabric and also waited in line with me to get everything cut. They had huge lines you would not even imagine it was that crazy.
The website I have mainly been using for the diapers is here.

We will probably also purchase some all-in-one diapers to be used with babysitters or long days out and about.
