Baby Update #3Posted: December 31, 2008
It has been ENTIRELY too long since I have updated with baby news. So…prepare yourselves…this blog will be full of info, pics, and fun 🙂
First and foremost, on October 17th, we found out that we will be having a BOY!!! Nick and I were both VERY excited with this news! On the way home from the doctor, Nick and his dad shared tears while dreaming about placing the first cricket bat or ping pong paddle in our son’s hands. We have had several names floating around but I think we have finally settled on one; however, we will not be sharing that name yet because there are still 3 months left to change it if we need to.
The lil guy has been growing and we have been receiving healthy reports at every visit. Here are a few pics of our lil man:
My body has also started to grow, although, I’ve only gained 4 pounds! For once in my life, I’m not setting the curve on weight gain! Here is a picture of me at 6 1/2 months:
Our nursey is coming together quite nicely. We added wainscotting around the bottom half of the room and painted the top half. Unfortunately, the green isn’t really the light sage green that we were going for so we’ll have to repaint it (thank you to our friend, Jaime, who is painting for us). Also, Nick and I were very blessed to receive our crib as a gift so we spent some of our vacation time putting it together. Here are a few pics of the nursery so far:

Christmas was a fun time to receive some cute baby gifts.
My sister, Rachel, made these adorable signs for the nursery. It pays to be a part of a crafty family 🙂
My mom found this wipe holder and outfit at a craft show:
Stay tuned for more updates!
