Baby Update #3

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:

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 🙂

    Amy you look wonderful!!! And only 4 lbs so far?? That’s utterly amazing 🙂 I hope you’re feeling well and that the lack of weight loss is not because you’ve been deathly ill.

    I miss you but think of you often and you remain in my prayers! I can’t wait to see your little man! Make sure I’m on a shower invite list… Oh and very nice work by your sis/my best friend 🙂

    I love the color, I think it’s great, the bedding looks really good too. You look awesome! Keep up the good work. I’ll be calling you in the next few days, my sister and mom are visiting so I’m hoping to have a free minute or two to maybe come visit at school for lunch or something.

    Baby boy (*****?) is gorgeous too by the way! Not that I expected otherwise.

  8. I can NOT wait to see what/who this baby will look like. Either way…he is bound to be a cutey! I also can’t wait to hear the name…and btw you are one very small pregnant lady…your belly is barely there!
