Week 29

29 weeks on my 29th birthday! So fun! He's the size of a squash this week. Keep growing baby boy :) it's cold outside  here! Getting down to the teens and 20's. Yowza! I love the cold and dry though. Definitely my favorite. Perfect for Christmas season!

We saw our baby moving from the outside of my belly today! So fun! :) must be big movements to have my whole belly shift. So proud of the little guy.

My friend Jenna came up and took some pics for our Christmas card up in the snow today! She's so talented and I am so grateful for her friendship... Can't wait to see the pics :)

I put together a bookshelf for the baby's nursery this last week. Nursery is almost done! Waiting on our curtains and a painting to be finished and then we will be pretty set on the nursery. Of course it can always use some more decorative touches, but for now it's almost done with the big things :)

Week 28

28 weeks pregnant and the size of an eggplant! Lots of kicks and movement. I love it.

This week we went to the duck game and I felt the baby have the hiccups for the first time, I loved it. So tiny and cute :) it was too close of a game, but the ducks won the civil war, so overall it was a great day!

We also went tree hunting this last weekend. 

Brian thought it was funny that this was the only time I go hunting :)

After Brian used the chainsaw to cut down the tree, we saw a bright yellow sign that said "No Personal Chainsaws" oops! Haha

We are still working on all the Christmas decorations inside, I've been having to take lots of breaks. But Brian got the lights up! I love our house, especially at Christmas!

Brian also helped fix the letters that I accidentally mounted upside down, and we finally got them up in the wall in the nursery. Such a great week :)

Week 27

Happy Thanksgiving! So thankful for my husband, who is the best man I know and going to be the best father. So thankful for the tiny baby growing in my womb. So thankful for Dale. :) so much to be thankful for!

This week we are 27 weeks and the size of a head of cauliflower! 

We worked on the nursery a little this week too! Got a cozy glider/recliner 

And I'm trying to put together our baby's monogram to hang on the wall, Brian helped with the staple gun and securing then letters, but we still need to get them up on the wall. 

Getting close to the 3rd trimester! Almost baby time :)

Week 26

I woke up this Sunday and thought, "I look pregnant!"  Brian said he thinks I've looked preggo for awhile, but hopefully people see a tummy with purpose now :)

Little guy is the size of a Green Onion this week! 1 2/3 of a pound and still kicking! Only some of his kicks are felt on the outside, I love it. By far my favorite thing in pregnancy!

On a different note, we bought the baby a new car ;) it is a 2012 jeep grand cherokee and feels super safe and so fancy! I love it. Brian and I made a list of "Before Baby" a few years ago and slowly but surely we are crossing things off... This was one of the last ones! 14 weeks til our baby boy... so excited!

Brandon is a long time buddy and married to my bestie in Maui, Nicole... He helped us get this jeep while he was back in town from paradise and it was so great to see him, but I miss his wife so much!

Week 25

25 weeks and the size of a rutabaga! Almost a pound and a half and getting stronger!

Brian is able to feel baby kicks on the outside of my belly from time to time these days... And that is my new favorite activity :)

Starting to show a little belly, and getting everything together. Work is getting a little more uncomfortable, but my countdown to maternity leave is getting close!

Bedroom furniture!

For the past 2 1/2 years we have been using our extra room by the master bedroom as a closet, so the only thing in our master bedroom was a bed, a clock, a small bookshelf, and two candles. That is all. Very basic. I have been scouring Craigslist for bedroom sets and had no luck based on our budget and my taste ;)

These are the only before photos I have:

Then about 2 months ago when we started to get the nursery ready we had to get down to business and get dressers for our bedroom. So if you give a mouse a cookie... That meant I wanted everything including a bed frame, side tables, a whole coordinated set. So we ordered from a a small company in Spokane that I fell in love with their style and the price was right on so we ordered a whole set. 8 weeks later they delivered... Part of the set. 

No kidding, they forgot our knobs for all the drawers, the bed frame pieces that actually hold the mattress, and the mirror that goes on top of the dresser. So, every part of the furniture was messed up. We had a halfway bedroom for almost two weeks. 
Just yesterday that came by and finished the delivery. Our drawers work, our bed is on the frame, and we have the mirror. 

I'm so excited about how the furniture makes our room homey and finally finished! :) well worth the wait

24 weeks and over a pound! The size of a corn on the cob!! The little bump doesn't go away when I try to "suck in" my belly anymore :)

The nurse in me is thankful for every day past 24 weeks. :)

Week 23

23 weeks and the size if a mango, about one whole pound this week! Grow baby, grow! :)

Feeling him kicking around and I love it, Brian even felt him tap a little on my belly last Friday for the first time! 

Every once and a while it takes my breath away how blessed we are.  Literally sometimes it makes me stop what I am doing out of disbelief. I am so thankful for my husband, our growing family, our dog, our house, our jobs... Counting my blessing and saying many, many prayers of thanks. 

Here's a pic of Brian out for a quick hunt, dale looking on as he walks out the back. Love these two :)

Week 22

22 weeks and the size of a spaghetti squash! Very exciting week because we started to get our little guy's nursery together!

We had a busy weekend.  We went to the duck game on Saturday,

On Sunday Brian took Dale duck hunting for the first time and then we picked up our baby furniture!

 Here is Brian getting it secure in his truck:

Then the Buersmeyers came over to help carry it upstairs and put it together.  We have fabulous friends :) 

Here is our progress so far!
