I forgot!

This is something else we bought at the Just Between Friends consignment sale--a First Year frame. I just forgot to take a picture of it.

Second Elder Dinner

Our second installment of our elder dinners was last Saturday. We had two wonderful couples over and really had a good time. Our menu consisted of chicken pot pie, purple juice salad and brownies. Everyone was impressed with everything and we even had leftovers of the pot pie! Hosting dinners really does get easier the more you do it!

You may (or may not) have noticed that the ticker jumped a few days. When we went to the doctor yesterday, we found out that my due date changed and they never told us. It's now June 6. I'm guessing they changed it after the NT screening in December, but just never mentioned it to us. Anyway, things are moving along well, but I still need to gain more weight. Bring on the pasta, bread, potatoes, etc. Maybe that will help!

See below for the newest picture of our little one. I've labeled them to make them easier to understand.

Our little alien!

I really didn't realize how much I would miss my jeans until I put on a pair this morning. You see, this is the first time since January 1 that I've been able to wear jeans! The pair I bought at Old Navy still doesn't fit me (if they don't fit by the end of February, I'm taking them back...why hold on to something that still doesn't fit?). The pairs that Cara lent me are really a little short, but at least they almost fit me in the waist. (They have belt loops so at least I can make them fit!)

Six weeks without jeans? Never again!

My car turned 50 today! On the way to work (in the 30-minute-delay backup), my car "turned over" 50,000 miles. All in less than two and a half years. Wow!

Cara and I picked out the fabric for the bedding today! She and her mom make baby stuff and offered to make mine. So, the three of us (and Cara's son Jackson) went today to find fabric. The ties for the bumper and the trim where needed will be some kind of black & white fabric to go with the ribbon on our sign.

This microdot chenille will be the inside of the bumper (closest to the baby) and one side of the blanket.

This cotton fabric will be the outside of the bumper (facing the room), a liner for the baskets for the changing table and one side of the blanket.

This sheer will be an overlay on the bedskirt. Cara & her mom are going to find a solid olive cotton fabric that matches the microdot chenille for under this fabric. The solid fabric will also be a liner for the baskets for the changing table.

It was a fun day picking out what will be our baby's home for the next couple years. Yea!!
