Baby Post- Week 17

Another week has gone by...we're getting close to the half-way point!  I don't really have too much to report. 

I've been feeling much better this week, thank goodness.  I've gotten a lot done.  The house is really shaping up, and I'm feeling much less stressed, and much more organized!  While cleaning each room I've been keeping track of what we'll be taking to Georgia with us, so hopefully the move won't be too chaotic.  We'll be leaving in just a few short months to go live with Grandma and Grandad while your Dad is gone.  They're really busy getting rooms ready for you and Cam. 

I've also been doing a good bit of sewing.  I finished two sets of potholders (I'll post pictures once the people they belong to have received them).  I finished your baby blanket, which I'm really proud of.  I would change a few things if I ever do another one, but I think it's really cute and will suit you just fine :}  I'm currently working on a diaper bag made from one of Dad's uniforms.  I got a lot done last night, but it was getting late and I got frustrated, so I had to stop!  I can already tell it's going to be way too small, but I'm sure we'll get some good use out of it anyway.  When I finish the bag and finish getting the house clean, I'm going to continue working on Cam's scrapbook.  He's 10 months old now, and I'm only on his first month!  Oops...I've got a long way to go if I want to finish his first year before your big arrival!  Then I can start on yours...I bet Grandma will help :}

Your Dad is still gone...he'll be home in a little less than 3 weeks.  I haven't been able to talk to him since Friday I think (and that was just a text).  Cam and I sure do miss him.  I'm sure he misses us too and that he'd much rather be here!  He's doing important training for his job that will help keep him and his soldiers safe, so I can't complain too much.

The big things in the news right now are Chick-fil-a (people are upset about finding out about certain organizations the company is supporting and contributing to), and the 30th Olympic Games in London.  Michael Phelps, the team USA swimmer, set a new record for receiving the most medals in Olympic history.  He won 22 during his career...the previous record was 17.  The USA gymnastics team won gold medals, and one girl on the team, Gabby Douglas, won gold for her individual performance- she's only 16 years old! 

We will hopefully find out if you are a boy or girl at our next appointment on September 2nd!  I can't wait!  Also, I can feel you move sometimes :}  I think I felt you as early as week 14, but it's hard to tell.  It's still very faint, almost like a tickle...but I'm pretty sure that's you!  I love knowing that you're getting bigger and stronger and that we're that much closer to meeting you :}

And just a reminder:


  1. I would love nothing more than to see you breakdance pregnant.

  2. Aww, I just realized I'll have to see Little One's nursery via facebook picture only. :( So you better take a lot of them! ;)
