as promised...

mia's bedding!

it is from the amy coe collection at BRU. i LOVE it.

it's over!

i had my 1 hour glucose test today. it wasn't that bad. i had the orange drink, and it tasted like sugary, orange juicy juice. i was worried that i wouldn't be able to drink it in the 5 minute time frame, but it was easy. the worst part was the hour of waiting. they only took two vials of blood, which was nice because it was over so quickly! if you know me well, you know that i am NOT a fan of having blood drawn. let's just say, i've had a few incidents in the past. now i just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope i passed. the 3 hour test does NOT sound like fun.

we bought mia's crib mattress and bedding yesterday! pics to come, as soon as i get it set up.

25 weeks

i finally got off my butt and took a picture. here i am at 25 weeks and 2 days.

week 25

here is what baby is up to...

this is what The Bump says about baby:

Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby's also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.

i can't believe how big she's getting! there's still a LOT of growing left to do though. hooray for my little eggplant!

i'm still tired. all of the time. especially on days that i work. oh well. i'm going to be tired all the time for a while, i guess.

nothing really going on in baby-land. we did a little more registering at BRU last week, which was fun as always. i still haven't decided what bottles to use. meh.

the date has been set for my work shower, which i'm really excited about! all the girls are so awesome...everybody is so excited. i can't wait for april to get here!

still waiting on my chicco goodness to be released. i stalk the chicco website daily. i also stopped some lady in the mall food court yesterday who had a chicco stroller and asked her how much she loved it. probably thought i was crazy. oh well.

new bump picture to come. i'm lazy.

and that is all. thank you, come again.

after a loooong search, i have finally found my travel system! and playard...and high-chair...

for some reason i've been dead set on finding a whole set that matches...call me anal...call me whatever. i kept finding travel systems that i would sort of like or a playard, but lo and behold, there wouldn't be a matching set. i finally found a set at target, which i wasn't that happy about because i DO NOT want to register there. plus, i wasn't in love with the set, it was just the only thing i had found that i sort of liked.

then finally...i came across this:

it's pink!!!! and not over-the-top pink! and there's a playard and high-chair to match! it's a new collection from chicco, and it actually hasn't been released yet. the playard and high-chair are set to be released some time this month, while the travel system comes out in march. now all that needs to happen is for BRU to carry it, so i can add it to my registry! i'm so excited.

to breastfeed...

or not breastfeed...that is the question. i'm so conflicted on this. i know that it will save us some money early on and that it's so much better for the baby than formula, but the whole concept freaks me out. it seriously gives me the willies. i have a LOT of thinking to do.

do any of you have any opinions on the subject?

today was a special day. not only did we find out the gender of the baby, this is the day one year ago that my aunt kelley passed away of a heart attack. she was 46 years old.

my aunt was ridiculously special. she is with me every day. case in point: she LOVED butterflies. absolutely loved them. the tech who did my ultrasound was wearing butterfly scrubs. after the ultrasound, we went to IHOP. the server gave me a pen with butterflies to sign the credit card slip. i miss her, but things like this make me smile.

it's a...


more later.

here we go...

getting ready to leave for ultrasound #2. here's hoping they can get the goods! i'll update later...
