Ticker Change

Ticker above moved over to the middle baby today - not sure why it does it at 17w6d instead of 18w even like it has done in the past. I could have missed it though, I haven't really paid a whole lot of attention. Either way - scary to think we are close to the half-way point!

"Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon."
***EDIT*** Just in case you can't tell (AHEM - Stacy :))- the tuber above is a sweet potato :P

Just Playing Around

Found a free trial of a program online and made these - I was hoping for a Fall template for a background but searched and searched and could not find one I liked!

Well a few days ago anyway :)

Had a crappy night/morning and just have to vent about it... Things WERE going great: Andy was super sweet and made Josh and I dinner, then I was able to watch some of my Thurs night shows, then I hopped in the shower so I would have extra time in the morning to pack to go to Mom & Dad's place. Great, no problems there, I even shaved for the first time in a long time :)
Of course then I wake up at 2AM and have a bout with restless legs, which has been happening off and on the past few weeks. No big deal - I go and sleep propped up on the couch and no more problems.
Then the ugghh happens - I wake up a bit late because I don't have my alarm clock in the living room, start to get ready, and get the worst nosebleed ever. And I haven't gotten one in years! Turns out it is near impossible to get ready and pinch your nose, etc at the same time. This goes on for 20 min straight - making me even more late. And of course, I swallow a bit of blood and start puking, yay.
Then, my laundry I was going to pack this morning is still wet in the dryer, so I will have to pack when I get back from work. I was going to do my hair all cute this morning since we are meeting at the pumpkin patch with Em & Anna but did not have time. Could not find the shirt I wanted to wear, and did not have time to eat.
Now I am at work, we are short-handed, and I need to see if I can get out a little earlier because I have so much to do to get ready still. We are meeting at 3:30-4 at the pumpkin place (probably about 1.5 hrs from here) and I had originally told work I would be leaving at 2. Hopefully it isn't a big deal to leave at 1 instead - my boss is awesome so I am sure it will be ok. I just hate making them short another person. Oh well, it will have to do and I will have to push my conscience away, I am already getting out early so what is one more hour, right?
On the bright side - I get to see my family and my adorable niece (walking!) so really all of this is nothing and I feel better just having vented :)

I Love My Grandpas!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
Grandpa P - The cradle is adorable and so great that you and Gram were able to get a custom fit mattress!
Grandpa W - I am in awe of these small pianos as always! Especially since they actually work :) The dog was scared, but he will get used to it.

Our little one will get great use out of both of these wonderfully crafted items. We are so appreciative that he/she will get something from their Greats that will undoubtedly be passed along later on for their children as well!
Thank you again!

I have been tagged :) Not sure if I can think of 7 interesting things about myself, but here goes:

1. I have a mole in my eye (in the iris part). I have been told it is harmless, but like any mole to watch it as it can develop into melanoma, etc.
2. I have never broken any bones, but I have had stitches once... I sat on a knife while unloading the dishwasher when I was 11 or twelve. Not a fan of dishwashers, or fillet knives for that matter!
3. I can burp louder than most men I know - yep I bet you are jealous :)
4. I am obsessed with Celebrity gossip - it is my vice.
5. I have never once mowed the lawn in my 26 years.
6. I tend to say random things sometimes, only Josh has been able to trace my thoughts to figure out how they are related to whatever was going on/being talked about at the time. It's almost a game now :)
7. I bite my nails and lip... constantly...

Work in Progress

New project for the weekend (and probably a few more weekends!) - called Evening Frost. The kit was given to me by Aunt Connie and Grandma Walsh and will soon be given to someone else :) I am thinking Christmas gift, but we will see.

*** UPDATE *** It's going easier than I thought - might be done sooner rather than later :)
