Things I’m Fearful Of As A First Time Mom

It's normal to have worries and fears throughout pregnancy. Especially as a first time mom, there's a lot of unknowns out there. I do know that some of the things I'm fearful of or worry about are out of my control, some are in my control, and most things will work out


To All The Pregnant Ladies (Video)

I saw this mentioned over at yesterday and got a kick out of it. I'm impressed with her moves… she's 38 weeks pregnant in this video. I was like, damn, I could barely walk in heels pre-pregnancy, let alone dance like this!


More Nursery Decorating!

This morning I decided to tackle a little more decorating. Last weekend, Brian hung the wooden letters for babygirl's initials. Yesterday we went to Babies R Us to update some registry items (the stroller I originally selected was discontinued and we're not ready to buy one). I picked up a photo frame


Anatomy Ultrasound, Round 2

This morning we went in to finish the anatomy ultrasound. I asked babygirl nicely to cooperate with positioning while we were driving to the appointment. Thankfully, she listened. This time she was head down (I thought I felt an increase in pressure in my lower abdomen!) and not quite as scrunched up.


Nursery Progress!

The holiday weekend was quite productive. We did some good housecleaning (not just surface-get-rid-of-clutter-cleaning). With the help of some friends, the nursery is now painted! Brian also put together my glider, so it's starting to look like a nursery, which I find very exciting. Be warned, this post will be a bit


Baby Likes To Rock Out

I have discovered that our little girl likes to rock out. The first time I felt movement was during our 3ish hour ride home from my parents' house Memorial Day weekend. Of course, we were listening to lots of rock and metal music. I mean, that's just the norm for us. Those


Baby Forecast: Mostly Pink

We had an interesting time getting our ultrasound today. At first our child was being modest by covering her privates with her hands… but eventually those hands moved. The tech seemed pretty confident it was a girl, pointing out the dots and lines that form little girl parts. So we're pretty excited!


Halfway, Baby!

Today marks 20 weeks, so we are halfway to the estimated arrival date. Woohoo! I can hardly believe there's only 20 weeks left. I mean, I'm barely showing, for one (in my opinion anyway… I don't have that obviously round preggo belly). And there's so much to do yet! To-Do-Yet List: Crochet


Baby’s First Piece Of Furniture

We continue to make headway in our quest to prepare the nursery. The room is almost (almost!) completely cleared of non-baby items and we were able to get rid of the futon today. That was taking up a lot of space. So, we finally got to put together the bassinet that my


I Wonder. . .

I wonder what you will be like when you join us. Will you look more like your mommy or daddy? Will you like the same things we do: music, hobbies, sports? Or will you open up our worlds to new interests and activities? Who will you cry out for when you wake
