only ONE month late at making them... will I be any better at following them??? Probably NOT. But here they are nonetheless:

1. DEEP clean one room in my house a day... (6 rooms.... 6 days.... Sunday, I rest.)

2. Actually STICK to our budget!!!

3. Try one new recipe each week. I have SO MANY cookbooks, and yet we always seem to make the same 10 things...

4. Be a BETTER blogger!! (This should be easier when Camryn comes... then I'll have something more to blog about!)

5. Do more game nights with Rich. We started this a few weeks ago, and have been LOVING it. Problem: we don't have a ton of 2 player games...

6. (Once Camryn arrives) Figure out a SCHEDULE so I keep my sanity!!

7. ORGANIZE all my craft stuff!

8. Be more ACTIVE (gotta lose that gut in a reasonable amount of time!)

9. Get together with friends more (also, MAKE MORE FRIENDS!).

10. Take Rich to see Harry Potter number 6 while we leave Camryn with a sitter! WOO HOO!!

Ok... well that is all I have for now. I think 10 is a reasonable list. Stay tuned to see if I actually COMMIT to any of these!! XOXO

Ultrasound: 22 Weeks

First of all, let me just say, that the quality of these ultrasounds is TERRIBLE!!! We were both really disappointed. But luckily we have decent ones from our Gender Ultrasound!!! Ok, so this first picture is her side profile.... but half of her face is hidden.... so there is a ribcage, hand, chin, mouth, and nose... then the rest disappeared...hmmm...

This is what we affectionately refer as the creepy skull and crossbones shot. Just tilt your head to the right... SCARY!!

Still a girl!!

Camryn's foot... or claw!?!?

This is supposed to be a fetal position shot... ??? I think I can see the leg...

Booo!!! This is a face only a mother can love.... and apparently a grandmother..

Ok, well there's our girl!!! Hope you can still sleep tonight!! XOXO

The Gut... 20 1/2 weeks

Well there you have it. Taken just minutes ago. I swear, it is EXPLODING!!! I told Rich tonight that I don't feel like there is any room for it to get any bigger. But I fear I am VERY wrong. At least the rest of me hasn't exploded... right??? Sigh. Not much to write tonight, but I think I felt her move!!! I was on the phone with Lindsay tonight, and all of the sudden I felt this weirdness in my gut, and then it was all hard where I felt the weirdness!!! Haha I am assuming that was movement, I only felt it once tonight, so who knows?? K well that is all I have for now... Nursery is so close to being finished, so I promise I will work on it and get pictures up soon!!! XOXO

Baby Camryn

Here are the pictures from our gender ultrasound (done at 17 1/2 weeks).  We have decided to name our baby girl Camryn Paige.  Not because it means anything special-- apparently Camryn means crooked nose (poor girl!) and Paige means page. Haha... So there you have it- we didn't do the traditional spelling (Cameron) because her name isn't Cam-er-ON. Just Camryn, K so on to the pictures.

Her cute little profile. So far, no crooked nose. Yay!!

This one is slightly creepy.  Haha. We are probably the worst parents alive for saying this, but our kid kind of looks like an alien here...  And that little circle on her chest is her teeny heart.

She will probably kill us for posting this, but that is the "girl" shot.  If you can identify what is what, you are better than we are.  I can sort of see what is what, but we are hoping for a more clear shot at the 22 week ultrasound.

Here is Camryn giving you a high five.  Or telling you to talk to the hand.  Knowing my kid, it's probably the latter. 

And finally, her teeny little foot!!! You don't know what a relief it was for me to see that my kid had all of the proper limbs!! I had weird dreams that my baby would be born with a missing leg. 

So that's our girl!  I am still in the process of finishing the nursery.  You have know idea how annoying it is to get bead board ready for paint!! I had to fill putty in the nail holes, and I am MOSTLY done sanding it smooth. Then I get to vacuum the dust, wipe down the bead board, and THEN, I can paint!! Yippee!!  I promise to post pictures when it is all finished.  XOXO

Third Midwife Appointment...

I had my third appointment today, and everything is still looking good!! These appointments haven't been very exciting. I got weighed (a proud 122, thank you very much!), had my temperature taken (101-- weird that I don't feel sick at all..), did the blood pressure check (114/77 I believe) and then I get to hear my baby girl's heartbeat!!! (Which I must say, is the highlight of the whole visit.) I am getting another ultrasound on the 22nd. Even though we got the gender ultrasound, we just want to make sure this one says girl too! I know 2 people who were initially told girl and then it was a BOY. We are pretty sure nothing will change, but we figure one more ultrasound will give us some more confidence.

So that is about it. I know I promised pictures from the gender ultrasound, and I will try to get those up soon... maybe tonight. I don't know how to use our scanner, so I am waiting on Rich to teach me. We have been VERY busy this week working on getting our nursery put together! And I absolutely LOVE it. We are doing green with white bead board. It is looking so cute!! The green is on the walls, and last night we hung all of the bead board. So all we have left is to put up the chair rail, sand all the nail holes, and paint all the white! Rich laughs when I tell him I'm "nesting," but I have energy right now, and I think I am smarter to get it done before I get too huge to care!

Ok, well that's what is new with us, pictures will come soon!! XOXO
