I hope he gets his daddy's good looks!

Pin It This Thanksgiving, my Mother-in-law got out Jay's baby album for me...
Have you ever seen a cuter kid?
I hope our little guy gets his daddy's good looks!

The cutest thing is that he had a huge grin in almost every picture. :)
Apparently he was a happy little one.

(This last one here is my favorite)

So much for a mother's intuition!

I will see my baby tomorrow...

Pin It

And I've been a complete excited/anxious/nervous wreck!

It's like having this sonogram tomorrow makes the whole thing more real or something. There's a part of me that doesn't want it to be over either... so if it comes tomorrow, then I don't get to see this little one for (Lord willing) about 20 more weeks.

I have a feeling tomorrow morning will bring many happy tears.

Jay gets to be in charge of all disclosure of tomorrow's results, since he is being a sweetheart and letting me find out (so long as baby decides to be forthcoming)... so I cannot promise any immediate announcements... but I doubt I'll be sleeping much tonight.

Here are some pictures of the next little mini-quilts I finished. I now have 2 girl ones completed, and 1 boy... we'll see if I have 1 or 2 more to make after tomorrow. :) The belly is at just shy of 19 weeks.

To find out... or not to find out...

Pin It Monday, I have my "big sono." I'll be just a smidge shy of 19 weeks...

And I still don't know whether or not to peek at the baby. :(
I want to... Jay doesn't.

I believe that births are kind-of anti-climactic for everyone else when they already know the gender, BUT I think the pregnancy will be more exciting for me if I know. BUT Jay doesn't want to know. I hate the feeling that I'm robbing him of something.

If he didn't read me so well, we might have the option of me finding out and him not, but he doesn't want that more than he doesn't want to know.

I am so torn. I wish there was a way I could find out without feeling guilty. I wish we agreed.

He has agreed to find out for me, but again, he doesn't want to.

Practice mini quilt

Pin It

We don't know if she's a she... it's just my instinct.

Today I made a mini practice quilt.
I tried free-hand quilting, a lace trim (which I cut off because I didn't like it), various embroidery stitches, etc.

Even with all that craziness, I'd say it still turned out pretty well... AND it accomplished its purpose of letting me get in some practice.

I *might* find another purpose for it later down the road.

Here are some pictures. :)

I have material to make a boy practice quilt too. Just haven't got to it yet.
OH -- the back is a striped minky... very soft. :)

a little more than chubby

Pin It On Monday, Jay and I were in Chico, and standing across from a little girl in the clothing table section. I'd guess her to be about four years old.

As we were browsing opposite ends of the clothing display, I overheard her say, "Mommy, that lady's going to have a baby." I smiled as her mom shushed her quickly. Apparently my status was more obvious to the little one than to her mommy.

At my last doctor appointment, the scale showed a gain of 7 pounds over 5.5 weeks. BUT -- that was due to the fact that I was wearing shoes, jeans, a sweater, and other under layers. At my previous doctor visit, I wore a sundress and flip-flops. He gave me a bit of a warning to watch my weight gain, and I was quite irked, to say the least. What man hasn't learned that you don't scold a woman about her weight? ;)

I think I was irked because I was finally feeling good about the fact that I was eating real food again, in normal quantities! I've been worried about my previous eating, which wasn't exactly balanced, due to the fact that so many random items made me gag and yak.

So I told him it was the shoes. Which I am NOT wearing at my next weigh-in. :)

PS. I've only gained 8 pounds over the last 17 weeks... on my scale, which I weigh myself on in the morning.

Mommy at 15.5 weeks

Pin It
I'll have to post a new picture again soon... but this is my tummy at 15 weeks and 1 day -- October 30, 2008.

(Please pay no attention to the pile of laundry behind me)

*Her* first picture

Pin It
Here is the picture of the sonogram from 9 weeks. It really is a terrible picture... there were some that were much better, but the doc didn't print those out for us.

You could see little hands and feet moving... so amazing.

As soon as I saw the sono, my insides shouted at me "There she is!"

My instincts absolutely believe 'girl,' but we of course don't know for sure. Hopefully we will find out in a couple weeks.
