35 Weeks!!

WOW!! Only 5 more weeks! We can't believe how fast this has all gone! I think we pretty much have everything ready!

We had our 2nd shower in Peoria a few weeks ago and got some really nice things! Lisa, Leslie and Renee were great hosts! They threw a beautiful shower!!

We received our bedding! We were so excited to get it. We had it made and absolutely love it!! Now we just need a little baby to put in the nursery!! Brian got the new blinds hung and we bought a new rug (which Axle thinks is his new bed!!)
We took a birthing class yesterday. It was actually very informative! We learned a lot of what to expect while at the hospital. We also got a tour of the L&D floor and the rooms. They offer all private rooms which is nice!
Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! We hung out with friends here and had a great time!!

31 weeks! Time is flying by!!!

I can't believe I am 31 weeks today!! It has seriously flown by so quickly!! I am feeling really good! Sleeping is getting more and more uncomfortable but I know it is worth it!

We had our first shower a few weeks ago! It was so nice! Thanks to Beth, Brenda, Linda and Jenny!They did a great job! We got a lot of nice things too! Our high chair, diaper genie, wipe warmer, car mirrors, crib soother and some really cute outfits and blankets! This little girl is already so spolied!!

We have another shower coming up this weekend! Getting excited for that too!
Axle and Atlas are starting to wonder what all these "new" things are we are bringing home! My friend Allison gave us a bassinet and Axle was pretty funny when I brought it in! I think he thought it was for him! Of course!!
Today we are going to do a little yard work! It is really nice out and I want to enjoy this nice weather!!

Movin' on up!

Good morning!! It's 7:30am but have been up since about 3:45! It's now up to the baby when I get to sleep! :)

We've had a great few weekends! Last weekend Leslie and Marc (Brian's sister and fiance) came to visit. We had a nice time. We went to dinner and then just came back to our house and hung out.

We finally have all of the wallpaper down in our house! It has been a huge project! We are working on painting the hallway and living room right now. It will be nice to have all of that done!
This week I'll be moving up to the 3rd trimester! I can't believe how quick it has gone! I also can't believe in about 3 months we will get to meet our little girl! We are more excited than I can ever say!!

Axle has had a big week- out of his crate while we are away! He was out for 4 hours on Thursday night when we went to a charity event. I was nervouse for him to be out that long but he was comfortably sleeping on our bed when we got home. He had not messed anything up either! So- he got to stay out all day on Friday too while we worked! He was good once again. Our hopes are to have him completely out of the crate before baby come! Im sure he will be!

We are going to do yardwork and house things today! It is only suppose to be in the 60's so a little colder than the past few days.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies!!

Spring has sprung!

What a great weekend!! The weather was beautiful!

Friday night we went to a Club Crawl! It was a lot of fun! Our friends Roger and Tricia invited us. We we to the three country clubs in Rockford for drinks (water for me!) and appetizers! A bus took us to each place! It was a really nice time!

Saturday we were up early and enjoying the weather! Had to head to Lowe's. I think we are there each weekend! Got some things to do yard work! As we were leaving I noticed some of our flowers are coming up! (picture above) It rained a little on Saturday afternoon so we decided to move inside and do work! We started getting rid of the wallpaper in our hallway! It is the last of the wallpaper in our house!! :) Brian is finishing it up right now! We will probably paint next weekend! Axle and Atlas are such big helpers with all the home projects! We usually end up missing a few things and find Axle chewing on them in the yard!
We have a baby shower today for a couple that is due with their first baby in just a few weeks! We are moving right along too....the picture above was taken saturday. I am 23 weeks today! We had a Dr's appt last week and everything was looking great!!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Brian and I went to my parents house for the weekend and had a great time! We both had half days on Friday so it was nice to get there earlier than we normally do!

Little Baby G got her first Easter gifts!! She got a basket with all sorts of cute things in it! A few dresses, a stuffed pink bunny and some toys! This little girl is already very spoiled! She also got a few other gifts from friends: her first pair of Crocs (bright pink), her first Purdue t-shirt, and a super cute "Life is Good" onesie and blanket.

I felt what has probably been her biggest kick this weekend. It came at about 3am when I was on one of my many trips to the restroom! It actually scared me at first since it was stronger than all the others! I must have woke her up for once!

Hope everyone else had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!! I love Friday's!! Brian and I both work a half day today and then we are heading to my parents for Easter weekend!

I love that the weather is getting nicer! I played with the dogs outside for awhile yesterday afternoon! I even noticed some of my flowers are starting to sprout! I then got excited for the tulips in our backyard....then quickly remembered that Axle dug those up last fall! So I guess those won't be popping up this year!

We had a great time at dinner last night! Another couple that joined us are expecting their first baby ( a boy) in about 9 weeks!! It was fun to sit and talk with her about everything we are going through...and then drive our husbands home! :)

We had a great week!Brian finally got to feel Baby G kick! She is usually active more in the morning.....we need to work on that! :) We go back to the Dr next Wednesday! The million dollar question at the moment is "Do you have a name picked out?".....No, we don't! We probably won't pick one out until we see her!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Easter! It looks like the weather is going to be nice! I sure hope so! I don't want anymore snow!
