30 weeks

Wow.....I can't believe we are already 30 weeks into this pregnancy! Time has been flying by!
In 2 short little months, we will get to meet our little babe. The one that is in constant movement inside my tummy. The one that has the hiccups at least 3 times a day - sometimes 4. The one that Gavin is already totally in love with and can't wait to meet. The one that Danny & I are already totally in love with and can't wait to meet! 10 more weeks...wow!

Friday, I had my 30 week checkup. I got the results from my sugar tests (which all turned out good), and we got to see the baby on the sonogram. My mom, Danny, Gavin and me were all there and could hardly contain our excitement. Gavin LOVES hearing his little heartbeat... he must've asked the Dr at least 5 times to hear it. The rest of us are just nothing short of amazed to see him move and kick and just be Garrett. The Dr checked all his little organs and limbs and said everything looked great. He was not participating in the sonogram however and mostly slept. He is still all folded up in there with his knees and feet right in his face. We did the 3D sonogram but only got a few good pictures because of his position. It really just hurts my feelings that he is so cramped up in there - I feel so bad. He cannot be comfortable!!!

Nursery

I know its been AWHILE since I've posted, but its been SUPER busy around here. Of course, we are always chasing around our 3.5 year old but we've also been working on the house getting ready for the baby. We are putting the nursery in the guest bedroom so had to move our guest bedroom to our green room. That took some time just getting to where we could walk into the green room, much less putting a bed in there! So we've been working a little at a time... moving things around, getting Gavin's old things out of storage for Garrett, painting, putting the crib together, etc.

This weekend, Denise and my mom came into town and we hit the nursery hard. I really wanted to get the majority of it finished. AND WE DID!!! We still have to put up the border around the ceiling and move the changing table in - and I might do another little mural above the changing table - but other than that, the main mural is done! And its GORGEOUS! I cannot imagine it turning out any better.
