Baby Purchases

Finally ordered some things for our baby girl :) Crib should be here Friday! Crib & changing table were from Walmart, and the bedding is from Target - we found some great deals!

Christmas Day

We went to Gram's for lunch and relaxing, then back home because we both work tomorrow. The food and conversation was great, thanks Gram!

Belly Bumps

I hope this is big enough to see - it is also a bit long. Not really any sound to it so don't worry if you don't hear anything :) Oh and the biggest kick is near the middle (like 45 seconds in) on the right side of my belly...

** disregard the hairy belly - just another great pg attribute :)

Breaking a Hundred

Double digits - holy crap!

Party Time!

Happy to say that despite the snowy weather, all but one of our guests made it! (We missed you Val!)

Dinner menu - marinated steak, chicken & shrimp kabobs with red, yellow and green peppers; calico beans; mashed garlic red-skinned potatoes; dinner rolls (same kind Gram makes); veggie tray with dill dip; & a meat & cheese tray.
Guests - Andrew, John & Chad, Josh M., Heather, Bishop, Lisa, Kayla, Lisa, Osi, Megan & Mike

Josh and I each bought a gift for Baby P. for the other to open - Josh got her the Michael Jordan onesie set and I got her the play gym - it was cute to see what Josh would think of, can't really say I am surprised :)











Festivities included a Wii Bowling tournament - winner (John with 200 pts) received a Big Lebowski bowling ball DVD set, last place (Osi with 106 pts) received a box of chocolate truffles we called the boobie prize :)











Of course, Guitar Hero was also played... I am not a huge fan of this game :P
Heather made the awesome dessert - mini cupcakes on a stick!
It was so nice to see everyone - we already can't wait for next year!

For the Parents of Little Girls

Neat Camera Feature

Andy was playing with my new camera and figured out how to do this wide angle shot - maybe 180 degrees/panoramic? I'm not sure - I still don't know how to do it myself :P

Milestone

Just a quick note to myself really so I don't forget -
Josh felt the baby kick last night!!! We were cuddling on the couch watching Ron Burgundy, with my head on his shoulder, my belly touching his side where she decided to kick him pretty good :) It was great!

New Camera

For Christmas Josh got me a nice Kodak camera (he got a netbook computer) - so today I have been playing around with the camera, trying to learn the new features :) The pics taken so far are just using their auto-setting, I need to read a bit yet to use the advanced features. Here are a few pics and a very shakey video of Boscoe doing figure eights around the trees in the backyard... Disclaimer - I hate my voice so you may want to hit mute before you hit play ;)

Fraud

Found out today someone in Delaware somehow made a fake debit card with our numbers... Fun times and over $1000 later... Our cards are cut and canceled and we now wait on a credit for that amount (bank said up to 5 days from the posting date) and new cards (7-10 days). Then the investigation takes up to 90 days. Irritating.
Happy effing Holidays to you, too, whoever you are!

** UPDATE - Other people at our bank also got hit so it is most likely an issue with their security or more likely, the VISA company that our bank does their debit cards through is actually located in Delaware (lots of them are apparently because it is tax-free there) and maybe an employee stole the accounts. AAAANNNDDD - they have already credited our acct so our balance is back to where it should be! All we have to do now is wait for the new cards. Big weight lifted! ***

It's a....


GIRL!!!

video
Unfortunately the u/s was not in 3D - the appointment was at 1:45, they did not call us in until 2:20 and by that time the 3D/4D machine was in use... But we got some good pics and 2 short videos so I am very happy for that. And of course OVER THE MOON about having a beautiful baby girl. She is measuring a tad small the doc said - about 1lb 6oz according to the tech, but the doc said he was not concerned. Her HB was 150 (she was moving sooo much it was hard to get a reading), 4 chambers in her heart, 10 fingers, 10 toes, all that good stuff :) I think she looks like a little thinker in her profile pic with her little hand up by her face - runs in the family :)

Christmas Spirit

Our tree is up! The booger had a section of lights that were out - so I had to look closely at each one to see if it was burned out - found three and replaced them and voila - all lit up! Now all it needs is ornaments and presents underneath :) We made a stop at Walmart and picked up stockings to hang off the "faux"place. I debated getting Baby P a stocking, but decided that next year will be his/her first Christmas as an outside baby and then s/he will be able to see it and enjoy it :)

Just to add to the Christmas spirit, we are off to the PB Christmas party in about an hour, where we will enjoy prime rib, drinks (virgin daquiris for me, please!), dancing (yeah right), and good company. Oh, and the best part - bonuses! I can't believe I have been working there for 4.5 years now!

23 Week Belly

23 weeks and 2 days to be exact :)
I pretty much look and feel like crap this week (darned cold), but the belly is looking cute! Baby is kicking like crazy, but everytime I grab Josh so he can feel it, the baby stops - GRRR... Oh well - soon.
Only a few more days until we find out if this precious baby is a boy or girl! Yay!
* Sorry for the dirty bathroom - I am also lazy in my ailing state *
