I came across the baby bedding of my dreams, I adore it's simple style. The problem was bidding on it at the right time without spending tons of money, stinken ebay! To my surprise after 2 attempts on the same style, I won it for $51.00!!! It’s so cute and such a good deal for all 9 pieces it comes with!

It includes:
Crib Quilt
Crib Bumper
Fitted Sheet
Crib Skirt (Dust Ruffle)
2 Window Valances
Diaper Stacker
Toy Bag
Decorative Pillow

Happy Halloween!

21 Weeks

Am I over excited or what, but I can hardly wait for March 6th to get here!

The more kicks I feel throughout the day, the happier I am! It’s a constant reminded of my baby boy & what's to come!

Also my size is coming in quite nicely. At the beginning of the pregnancy I lost 10lbs. My eating habits hardly changed and my only answer to the drastic weight lose is the baby was given a majority of the nutrient my body usually got. I am a first timer and all, but good news is I'm not only passed my normal weight, but I've gained double of whatever I lost!!

Any helpful hints to prevent stretch marks will be much appreciated!

A day shy of 21 Weeks

I have such a sweet tooth lately, he seems to get a kick out of it, litterally!

I'm so grateful we finnally know! I'll never forget these first steps we're taking as a couple, the visit with our Doc. and seeing his little hand with his fingers near his head. These are such exciting time in our lives! So much to anticipate within the near future!

Although walking hasn't been so grand, long distances from the car to inside a building are practically impossible at moments without stopping to rest, the only way I can describe it is drinking tons of water and trying to go on a run afterwards, you'll get a side cramp and it's pretty much the same, but mine is in the middle and it doesn't take running to have the discomfort appear. It's all worth it... I'm no pro and I'm not complaining. I also can't say I've been in these shoes before, but nothing has ever held such a great meaning in my life as a Mom to-be!

Well we've started the painting process, the project consist of a dress and crib. We've decided on painting both a classic WHITE! It's a bit more than either of us realized, but the result will be a masterpiece!

Meanwhile we need help thinking of a theme for his nursery, any ideas?? Any shared will be much appreciated!

Week 20 is here!

Week 20 is being welcomed with open arms!! I have a kick-boxer as a baby that’s most active when I lie down or sit from being up even for a small amount of time. Morning, middle of the day and evenings are most common for our bubbly baby!! It's so crazy to see my stomach move as much as it does. During the evenings before bed we like to play the guessing game of which way baby Brown is facing. We are so in love with what's going on, 3 days and counting until we have some BIG NEWS to share!!!
Nursery plans are already in the making. We’ll be changing our office into the baby’s room. As of last night we discussed where things should go & put together some idea’s we have! It might seem a bit soon to be discussing this 4 months in advance, but we’re so excited, need we wait?

Meanwhile a big project we have in store is what to do with the crib. I bought it used, but practically new from a yard sale. It had only been used once and can also be made into a day bed for when he or she becomes a toddler. It’s from Babies US and could have been up to $300 new, but fortunately for us we paid 50 bucks & called it good! However we're indecisive on the color, it’s a natural pine, but we’re thinking of changing it to either an espresso, black, traditional white or stain it? Whats your thought on it?

Week 19

When looking at this photo...

"The real deal, no exaggeration." -Chris

Week 19 is here and we're so impressed with all that is taking place. Being almost 5 months into this pregnancy I'm pleased to announce I have a belly! It’s taking some getting use to, the discomfort of sleeping has begun, but I’m sure it’s hardly comparable to what is to come! Amongst it all, we are so happy for these exciting times!

Week 18

General Conference came and gone over the weekend. With thoughts that our next one is in 6months we'll have a new born in our arms! As a couple & 2 individuals we wont only be looking for giddiness, but also we'll be parent's preparing the way for our little one amongst the things taught by such faithful Saints spoken in Conference. I can’t emphasize, let alone comprehend all that there will be to take in. I'm so grateful for the gospel, how it has shaped me and pray it will shape our children into wonderful members.

"One message mentioned was a sweet story of a little girl that was unable to hear. At the age of 4 she had already undergone many operations. As she stood with her Mother in checkout line behind her she noticed a little boy without any legs in a wheelchair. She loudly asked her Mom why he was that way and he Mother kindly explained. The little girl than turned to face the boy and pointed out he doesn’t have any legs as she can't hear and when Christ comes they will be made perfect."

The story is from my notes and not word to word, but the message touched me. It hit me so strongly to strive in teaching my little family to live towards such eternal perspectives. My Mom installed it in me and I hope to do the same with them.
3 Nephi 11:38 "become as a little child, or ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God. "

Sunday afternoon I ran into an old friend on Temple square that ran up to me and totally felt as if it was a belly flop with the hug I was greeted with. I hope my little baby is okay, I didn't feel the best that evening, no fun. Today seems good as usual though. I'm very cautious toward our little baby! Am I crazy for being a worrier? Words of comfort are always appreciated. I just can't wait to get a close up picture of Baby Brown & as every exam I look forward to hearing it's heartbeat!!

We have good news. Our exam went well on Monday. The next BIG Appointment we have is scheduled for the afternoon of OCT 20th and will be excited to tell the world once we know. ((Stay Tunes!)) The past 4 months has taken forever, we can't wait to prepare for our little one. Baby showers in the works, names to be considered and when it comes time a baby to fit in place.

Life has been good to us. I recently rented Father Of The Bride 2, total classic. Not too mention I’m always looking for the perfect diaper bag/purse online... As for any other stores I haven't stepped inside one since I foundout! On a not so materialistic note, as a family we’ve been putting out extra effort to spiritually be prepared & fed daily. It’s a lot to take in the thought that one day we will be given someone so special and sweet, we are so excited for all that's to come. No matter enduring, enjoy the moments along the way.
