Baby Shower

So my baby shower was this past Sunday and it was wonderful.  We had about 50 of our friends and family come and they were all more than generous.  We pretty much got everything major off of our registry plus tons of cute clothes that I can't wait to put Hannah in!  :oP

We're moving this weekend (hopefully) so then I will be able to start putting things together, like the crib and changing table and the stroller, swing and bouncer; plus I need to wash tons of stuff.

But here are some of the things we got at our baby shower!  :o)

Hannah's Crib–Graco Lauren Dropside Crib in Espresso-from my parents (we also got the matching changing table from my sister and we're getting an espresso dresser from Nicks parents)

Our car seat and stroller–Graco Travel System in Melbourne.

My boppy pillow and slipcover–Boppy Vintage Urban Slipcover.

We can't thank our friends and family enough for their generosity! :o)


I have been having way too much fun with this website Scrapblog!  

As you can tell, I keep changing my blog background... well this website is why.  

I never really got into the whole scrapbooking craze, but I am pretty much addicted to this website.  I'm not even really good at the whole scrapbooking thing.  :o/  

I'm sure once baby Hannah is born though, I will make pages with her photos.  :o)

Check out the website... it truly is hours of entertainment!

Cute Birdy Mobile

I saw this link to a super cute birdy mobile on the Hostess Blog website.  

You can get it from this website called Gifts Defined.  They're handmade which is awesome but it definitely comes with a high price tag.  Its $68.00!  (Definitely out of my price range!)  

They have other designs too, not just birds, or you can get a banner made with your kids name.  The banners start at $51.00 for three letters.  

Its a nice website so I thought I would share it, but like I said, its a bit expensive because everything is handmade.

Dear Hannah,

Why oh why do you wake me up at 3am and decide to play soccer or do gymnastics inside mommy's belly? Mommy is trying to sleep!  Couldn't you do that when I am awake... and at work or something?

Please please please do not get into the habit of waking up at 3am once you get into the real world!  3am is for sleeeeeeeeeeeeping!  :o) 

Hannah, repeat after me... 3am is for sleeping!


18 weeks vs 31 weeks

The first photo is my 18 week belly shot and the second photo is my 31 week belly shot.


I can physically tell I am larger but the photos don't really show it all that well.  Weird!

Baby, fetus at 31 weeks - BabyCenter
But there is an almost 3 and a half pound baby in there!  :o)

This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
