My week....

So my week has been filled with the following things taking over my home....
Steven had knee surgery on Tuesday. It was supposed to take approximately 45 minutes and he was supposed to walk out of the surgery center. Well when the doctor didn't come out from surgery after about 1 1/2 hours I knew something was right. 2 hours later the doctor returned and said it was really nasty and there was much more damage than the MRI showed. He said Steven's knee was like that of a 70 year old woman and whatever he was doing he needed to stop :) So we left the hospital approximately 6 hours later and needless to say Steven did not a matter of fact he is on crutches for the next 6 weeks at a minimum!! We also left with all the machines you see above....and insurance doesn't pay for any of them :(!! So we've had a fun week of adjustments but we are getting there slowly! It's just going to be a LONG 6 weeks!!!

Belly Pictures!

So I'm terrible and didn't keep good track of these so I don't know remember exactly when they all were taken.....oops. I promise I'm getting better about it!

I believe this one was around 15 weeks

This one was taken around 18 weeks

This one was around 20 weeks

I promise in the two pictures where my undergarments look terrible I was wearing a jacket over those shirts but the jacket didn't show much of a belly!

I have some more recent ones I will try to post soon!

A few weeks ago I posted about baby bedding! I kept going back to something I originally liked before I even knew what we were having. You can find that bedding here! It's completely not something I would think to typically pick out but I LOVED something about it! Every time I looked at something else I went back to that bedding. That was until this weekend!!! The chair that we want to get for the nursery is on sale until the end of the month. So yesterday we went to check out the chair and see exactly which style we wanted and want color/fabric we were going to get! We knew we were going to go with something a little more neutral in the chair color because I didn't want a room that threw up pink!! Well as we are walking around something catches my eye.....bedding. I am in LOVE with it!!!! However, i've done this before and go back to the pottery barn bedding. Something is different about this bedding. I don't know what it is that's different but something and it makes me LOVE it! Of course my mom and Steven have told me to get whatever I want they like both (some help!!!). Here is yesterday's bedding!!!!

Now I realize that I have some time before having to order bedding but the problem is I would order different chairs for these sets so while I have time I really don't!!!! I have to make a decision by next week. What if I order my chair and then change my mind!

Someone please help my pregnant brain!!!!!!

Now we would get the chair below regardless of the bedding set but we would get two different colors. If we had the first bedding set we would get a VERY VERY light Khaki colored chair and with the second set we would get a VERY deep chocolate brown chair.

Now if it makes any difference our furniture is wood color...not quite as dark as the furniture in the 2nd set but definitely not light either. We would obviously paint the room different for each set as well!

Sweet Baby!

It's a girl!!

We found out almost a month ago that we are expecting a sweet healthy baby girl!! The ultrasound tech didn't have my husband fully convinced that she was sure it was a girl. Today at my doctors appointment they did a quick ultrasound to see if we could get a better view and it is definitely still a little girl and she was still sucking her thumb! The great name debate has begun and we are struggling but we know one day it will hit us! We will get to have a 4d ultrasound at the physician's office at 28 weeks so we are definitely looking forward to that time!

I've been looking for pictures of our nursery furniture online but haven't been able to find any so I will try to take pictures soon! I've started looking at bedding and I keep going back to the same set from Pottery Barn Kids and it just went on sale....maybe that's a sign :). What is funny is it's normally not something I would pick out but I loved it before we ever knew that it was a girl!

We have bought some cute little outfits and the travel system we wanted! The car seat hasn't come in yet but we did get the stroller....we were able to get a great deal on both pieces and are excited with our choices!

We are so excited for the upcoming holiday season and can't wait to share our last Christmas without kids with our family and friends! It does make me really anxious for next year as well!
