Update to the Nursery!

I did some work in Aidan's room today and here are the results!! We have offically kicked the kitties out of the room! Eventhough you wouldn't be able to tell that by looking at the pictures!

I also got adventurous and decided to put together the travel system we bought, so here's some pictures of the finished project!!

The Nursery

Ok, I definitely have some more work to do... but here are some pictures of Aidan's room! It's definitely no longer an office! The wall hangings and window coverings need to be hung and we still need to get a dresser, put down the lion rug on the floor, and kick the kitties out of the room... but this is basically how it is going to look! We are still debating on putting a border midway up the wall, but I think once we get the wall hangings up that will help keep the white walls from being too boring! We just love how it all looks!

24 weeks 6 days

Here's the latest bump pictures! It's really starting to "pop" now! Aidan has been kicking up a storm and is getting stronger every day. I finally seem to be getting past this cold and my hearing is almost back to normal! All in all, I'm feeling great!

At the baby shower, my mom gave us the crib bedding, and Grandma Bob :) and Aunt Keli got us some of the decor items. All the misc boxes (everything got shipped separately) have slowly trickled in and I have been working on getting Aidan's room set up the past two days. As soon as I have it "finished" I will be sure to post some pictures!

Family Time!

The best part about going back to California this weekend was being able to spend some time with my family! This was the first time I had been back home since we got married in 2006 and boy have things changed! My parents new house looks great! We had a lot of fun the night I got in helping to get ready for the shower. We iced and decorated cookies and got a bunch of other things done. The day after the shower, mom made a great breakfast, we went baby shopping up at the outlets, and we finished off the day with a visit to see my dad. Luckily I stayed healthy and no ear problems on the plane! Here are some pics of my mom and I and my sister-in-law Christine and I.

Baby Shower!!

This past weekend I went back to California for a baby shower! The shower was on Saturday and it was just wonderful. The company was fantastic, the food was terrific, and we really appreciate all of the wonderful gifts we received! Here are some pics from the big day!!!

24 weeks and counting!

I had my 24 week appt today. Went well... Blood pressure was normal, tummy measurements were right on, and Aidan was measuring in at about 150 beats per minute. Pretty quick appt, but I did talk to the Dr about what to expect from the rest of the pregnancy b/c of the SUA (single umbilical artery). I'll have an appt and ultrasound at 28 weeks. Then an appt at 30 weeks, followed by another ultrasound at the perinatologist at 32 weeks. After that I will begin going into the Dr on a weekly basis so they can do stress tests on Aidan (normally after 28 weeks you go in every two weeks). If they do determine that there are complications with his growth I may be going in twice a week starting at 32 weeks. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll only have to go in once a week for the last eight weeks!

Life is staying pretty busy and hectic here. This weekend I'll be traveling home to Ca for my baby shower! I am really excited to see my family and friends and to see my mom and stepdad's "new" house! I'm sure I'll have plenty of pics to post when I get back, including some new "belly" pictures!
