Spring is here!

One of the coolest parts about moving into a new house in the fall, is waiting to see what random flowers pop up in spring!  The previous owners were a little bit crazy with the spring flowers that only last a few weeks, but our yard is beautiful right now!!

The deer are in the background of this picture, and you can see all the flowers sprouting up in the middle of the yard.  Happy Spring!!

Week 16

We had a doctors appointment this week and everything went great.  We heard the heartbeat again and it was around 145 beats/minute.  We got a tour of the birthing area of St. Vincent's Women's Hospital and it was so cool to see where we will be delivering. The hospital is so nice and we even ate at the cafeteria to try out the food!  It was actually good!  :)  The bump is growing!

Week 15

This week I had my first issue with "pregnancy brain."  All my friends said that when they were pregnant they forgot things easily and did weird things.  We have a bucket of food for Penny that has a measuring cup that stays in it.  I fed Penny dinner and when I went to feed her breakfast the next morning the measuring cup was missing!  It was 6:00 in the morning so I didn't take much time to look for it before going back to sleep, but I didn't see it on the counters or the floor by the food bucket.  I had no recollection of where I put the crazy measuring cup!  I clearly remember giving Penny food at night, but after the food went in the bowl my mind was blank.  I have no clue what I did after I fed Penny...haha!  When Drew got home from work he looked for the measuring cup and found it in the trash!!! Why would I throw it away?  So weird!!

Weekly update

I follow a lot of different blogs and I have seen a few women that did a weekly update while they were pregnant.  They answered the same questions each week and I think it will be fun to look back at all my weekly thoughts.  Here is my first one at week 14 (3 1/2 months for all you people that may not have been pregnant before!) One of my pet peeves before I was pregnant was when a pregnant person would tell me how many weeks they were.  In my brain I was thinking please just tell me the month you are because I can't do math in my head and weeks means nothing to me!  Now I'm one of those annoying people that will tell you I'm 14 weeks.  Gosh!

Getting ready for baby!

We are down to 5 1/2 months to go before the big arrival!  We cleared out one of the guest rooms we had set up to start on the babies room.   Below is the before picture of the guest room.

We don't know if it is a boy or a girl yet, but we knew either way we wanted white beadboard in the room so Drew got started on another project!  He is priming the beadboard before it goes on the wall so all we have to do is paint it white once it is ready to go.  I am loving how it is turning out!!  The top half of the wall will be painted once we find out gender.  More fun decisions to make later!
