Best moment this week:  Doctor's appointment.  It's always comforting to hear Jack's heartbeat.  It was also comforting to hear from the doc that I'm measuring normal...take that neighbor who thinks I'm too big and having twins!
Strange experiences: Can't think of any this week
Milestones: Baby boy is now starting to grow hair and his facial features are forming.  He is able to blink and even has eyelashes and eyebrows. 
Looking forward to: Doing a 3D ultrasound knowing our baby is a boy this time, having Jason be able to feel kicks
Thoughts:  This week I have been obsessed with baby products trying to figure out what is best for Jason and I to buy and register for.  During lunch and after work all I've been doing is reading reviews and blogs with product suggestions. I am definitely making progress though!  Jason thinks I might need an intervention.   


  1. Last night when I went to sleep I literally could only see strollers floating through my mind. Too much research!! Why are there 30,000 brands for EVERYTHING!? Love ya.

    1. Haha! Last night it was infant seats for me! We seriously need to conference call soon and compare notes...or gchat!

  2. Hi! I came across your blog and wanted to say that I'm from Corsicana and went to HS with your husband!

    Also - I have a Jack who is 22 months old, so if you like little holiday monogrammed things (meaning, barely worn) I might have some!

    1. Hi Emily! Small world! That is so cool. And the fact that you have a son named Jack...we are destined to be friends. Love your blog and am your newest follower. Hope you have a great day! will have to tell me more about Jason in his high school days!

  3. I am loving reading through all of your baby posts! I am 17 weeks so it is fun to see your experiences and suggestions. :)

    1. Hey Sarah! So happy to know you read my blog! It's so neat to read blogs of people going through the same thing you are. I just jumped over to your blog and LOVE the Christmas card announcements you and your husband did. Talk soon!
