YOUR Suggestions Please!

We're in need of help from all the experienced mommies & daddies out there. If you wouldn't mind taking a second to list the TOP 5 things that you couldn't live without as parents (including brand names & specifics if available). Besides the crib & chair we really don't have many ideas as far as shopping and registering goes. First baby shower is in about 6 weeks and we're realizing it's time to start thinking of this stuff.

Thanks in advance!

It's a BOY!

After 21 weeks of suspense, we found out Friday afternoon that we're having a boy! We're stoked! Everything looked great at the ultrasound. Our baby boy is healthy and well, though he was very inactive Friday. The radiology tech thought we wouldn't be able to tell the gender because of his positioning, but the Dr. was able to poke and jab and got him to move his legs just long enough to see. Now we can finally start planning the nursery and buy something boyish. We have a few names we like, but are still deciding. Due date is October 3rd. The tech said he was measuring big enough that he could come a week early or a week later. Real helpful I know. It's probably something they tell everyone. We'll post some pictures of the nursery once we get it painted and decorated.

Tell Me

What do you think we are going to have? A little GIRL or a little BOY?

It would be fun to hear what you all have to say and see who was right. We find out today ( as long as baby co operates) So.... what will it be? GIRL or BOY?

Almost my whole pregnancy so far I have thought GIRL until this last week, now I think BOY. I am so anxious to know :)

Things I used to do...

I used to keep my house clean. I couldn't stand if dishes were there, and if the fridge wasn't organized. If you saw my house now, you wouldn't believe that.

I used to like to get up in the morning and shower. Now all I want to do is sleep, so showering is not fun for me anymore and don't even think about me doing my hair. Pony tail works best at this point.

I used to vacuum at least 2 times a week. You are lucky if I do that even once every couple weeks, or even 1 time a month. Its that bad!

I used to love to come home from work and relax with my favorite shows that were on my DVR. Now, I don't even bother recording half of them because I wont watch them. I go straight to bed.

I used to text... ALL THE TIME. Now, its just too much energy. several friends can attest to that, as I don't respond very often. (sorry, Jenn :( )

I used to eat a jar of pickles.. like on a daily basis. I have passed that that part of the pregnancy though. I am sure Steve thanks me for this. Its nice to not have a wife that smells like pickles all the time, I am sure of that.

I used to hang out with friends. Now I am not sure what that even means. Its been too long.

What do I do in place of all the things I "used" to do? SLEEP!!! and I really, really love it!! I am sure I am a bore to Steve and many other people because of it, but its my happy place. Bed, I can't wait to see you tonight! meet you at 7pm?!

Thank you!

Last week and this week have been extremely hard for me and my Family. So many things happening and before we can even comprehend what happened, something else happens. Its a rollercoaster and I am more than ready to get off.
Through it all, one thing has stayed constant and that is amazing friends and family. Thank you for everything. The prayers, the blessings and just listening to me. I can't tell you how much it has helped! Things are getting better, they are still hard, but getting better. I am so glad for that!

Last night I came home to a clean house, dishes done and a cake made for me. Really? I don't deserve how good my husband treats me but I sure do appreciate him and Love him for everything he does!!

P.S I am half way there. 20 weeks as of today! It has really flown by for me. Only 8 more days until we can find out if its a boy or a girl :)
