Baby Updates!

We had our 'official' 20 week ultrasound today! Baby is still a boy, and is perfectly healthy!! He's very active and didn't really want to cooperate but they managed to see everything anyway! The tech really tried to get a good 3d shot of his face, but this is the best she could do!
This weekend marked 20 weeks--that's half way!! It's going so fast!!

Sunday we spent some time putting together some of his nursery furniture!

It's just the start....however it does make it all seem much more real having furniture here!!

Nursery Ideas

Of course, one of the most fun things about being pregnant is planning the nursery! So of course when I found out we're having a boy I set to work right away. I settled on green and brown as the color scheme and decorate with monkeys. I don' want full out jungle-just monkeys.

I fell in love with this bedding I found on amazon:Isn't it adorable? The only problem is it's made with elephants. So, what's a girl to do? I did what anyone would do--go to mom!! My mom is the most gifted seamstress I know, so I started sending her link after link! The plan is for her to make all the bedding and some extras pretty close to this but with a few twists and with a monkey in place of the elephant!

This is the monkey head we're going to use one everything. Yep, my mom is that good!

I haven't decided what I'm going to do to the walls just yet. We rent, so if I paint we'll have to repaint when we move. And the walls are all textured so I doubt we can use decals. I still have plenty of time to decide on all that. However, babies r us has some adorable monkey accessories and decorations that I'm sure I'll have to have!!

Now if I could just decide on a name......

It's a Boy!!

I just realized, while I made it facebook official, I forgot to make it blog official!! So sorry! Our Doctor scheduled an ultrasound for when I'm 20 weeks, but I just couldn't wait!! We're so blessed to have a friend of a friend who works in ultrasound! She snuck us in last week and took a peek at out little one and we found out IT'S A BOY!! We couldn't be happier! Here's a few pics of our little guy!

Even though it looks like he's sucking his thumb, he really wasn't....he was just waving his hand back and forth by his face.

Of course, all our family is pretty excited and has already started buying stuff! Of course, Elijah wanted a boy bc 'even though he'll have to be nice when it's a baby; they can wrestle and fight when it gets bigger!' HA!

I didn't post the 'boy' picture because it wasn't very good. However since this wasn't our 'official' ultrasound, we'll be getting more pictures in a couple weeks!

Christmas Day Catch up!

Our Christmas Day was Chalk full--which means I have a lot of pictures! We loved spending the time with all our families. Unfortunately, I had one heck of a cold! Combine that with being pregnant and not being able to take anything made me pretty tired!

Our day started bright and early at Chris' parents house; where we opened presents before they had to go to work. Here's a few pics of the fun!

Chris' mom collects salt and pepper shakers so we couldn't resist getting her a cute panda set from the DC zoo!
Dalton got me the same movie my brother got me the day before. Luckily Dalton hadn't wrapped any of his presents until the night before so he graciously included the reciept! haha!
Next we headed to my Grandma's for lunch and presents.Tyler serenading Eric with his piano skills.
After my Grandmas we headed back to Chris' parents for dinner and presents with the extended family on that side!
One of my favorite parts of Christmas is singing Christmas carols as a family while Nanny plays her guitar!
Chris' mom, Andres, and the Grinch! haha!
We had a great time with all our family! It was great to spend time with everyone!
