17 weeks...

Yesterday, I was 17 weeks pregnant with Baby A. Here's what's been happening in our lives since I last posted...

Mat has decided if we have a baby girl, he's not going to be able to handle it-- in a good way, of course. Sweetest tweet I've ever read.

We finally decided on the crib we wanted for the nursery, and we snatched it right up at a great price from Pottery Barn Kids. (It's the Kendall Crib in Sun Valley Espresso.)

The photo above is of the crib in Pottery Barn-- we've not jumped the ship and decorated for a boy when we don't know what we're having! But, I wanted to show you what it looks like put together since this is what it looks like at our house right now...

We'll get around to putting it together before Baby comes. Hopefully!

I also bought this print for Baby A's nursery IF she turns out to be a little girl. If not, I'll hold on to it until a little girl comes our way.

I went to the doctor yesterday for a check-up, and he said everything looks wonderful! Mat and I were blessed by a great report. All tests so far have come back great/normal, and my blood pressure is "perfect." I pride myself on my fantastic blood pressure measurements. :) The doctor also told me I've only gained 3 pounds, and he and the nurse both went on and on about how great that is. They sure know how to make a girl's day!

We go to the doctor on July 13 for our next sonogram. At that appointment, we should be able to know if the Peanut's a little buddy or a little girl. We are beyond excited, and we are anxious to find out! We'll keep you posted!

Over the past few weeks, I've felt a million times better, and I am so happy that I am not someone who has to deal with morning sickness throughout their entire pregnancy. God's mercies are new every morning. Praise the Lord!

We registered and are confirmed for a couple of baby classes at the hospital where I'll deliver. I'm so blessed to go to a doctor who delivers babies at such a great hospital-- Baptist Hospital East. I think Baby A will like coming into the world there.

Finally, in non-baby related news, we just got this framed on Saturday...

Thankful to our friend, Devin Maddox, for making such great photos that we used for our Christmas cards. He's the best photographer I've ever seen. Mad props to him, and a sweet hello to his wife, Cara and cute son, Duke. We miss you guys!

Happy Hump Day!
