21 weeks and I'm moving!

No we aren't moving moving, just the blog is moving. I have decided to move on over to wordpress. I have been working on my new blog for about a week or 2 now and I think I'm ready to show it off. Its still a work in progress because I haven't updated my blogroll or posts from here yet but it looks nice and you'll be able to see its not only about baby anymore! Its going to be more about my life in all aspects and the things I'm interested in like cooking and decorating. Of course my baby posts will still be around but I will feel more free to write about what I want to write about and not feel so confined to baby, baby, baby.


Now onto the survey! Its a day late because blogger wouldn't let me post all day yesterday! Now this might be my last written survey. I'm thinking about continuing this survey via vlog entries on Fridays, what do you think?

-How big is baby? A banana! According to my book baby weighs about a pound!
-Weight gain? Oh I don't even wanna know!
-Maternity clothes? Yup.
-Stretchies? Same

Nursery furniture on its way!

So last weekend was a huge weekend for us. We ordered all of our crib furniture! Okay...most of it. My parents are purchasing the dresser as their gift and so the glider and crib are on their way. And because of my thrifty skills I also snagged a free mattress with crib purchase and got to take the one we previously got back and used the money towards our glider. Wanna know what we got? Sure ya do!!!


This is our crib. It is the DaVinci Kalani Crib.


This is our Stork Craft Glider. We have it in the espresso but we decided to go with a brown cushion instead of the beige. You never know what you're going to get when something says beige so I figure we might as well go with something more likely to match the room.


Our dresser will be from the Canopy line at Walmart. I wanted a full size dresser because the changer/dresser option is extremely pricey for how small the actual piece of furniture is and I can't imagine a 16-year-old still using that kind of dresser. I want this furniture to hopefully be around for many years to come, only needing to change out the mattress in the crib since it is a 4-in-1. Anyways, if you haven't looked in to Canopy furniture from Walmart please do so! It is great furniture, beautiful, easy to put together and well a great value! Seriously, we spent a ridiculous amount of money on our entertainment center (RIDICULOUS) and in the next room is our Canopy formal dining room set and you can't tell the difference! A little aggravating honestly.

The pictures look like the furniture won't match but I'm sure it will. The espresso dresser is not that dark!

Its a morning picture...what you expected a cute one?
-How far along? 20 weeks!
-How big is baby? A cantaloupe!
-Weight gain? I'm up more than 6 pounds by now. If I keep to the 1 pound a week I should be at 8 and by my next appoint up 10 total. Thats my goal at least but with the way I have been eating I'm gonna have to work out a little more to maintain that.
-Maternity clothes? Yup.
-Stretchies? Same
-Sleep? Its not so bad. Only up a couple times to pee and I might be getting used to tossing and turning to relieve the hip pain.
-Best moment this week? Last night hubman got to feel him kick!
-Movement? I can feel it pretty good in the morning, around 4 p.m. and at night before bed. I don't have strong kicks frequently but I get them every now and then like last night! He kicked a few times that were hard enough for the hubby to feel!!
-Food cravings? Smoothie please!
-Gender? Its a BOY!
-Labor signs? Nooooo, thank you!
-Belly button in or out? I can pop my belly button out if I push on it haha! It is so weird...
-What I miss? This is always a tough one. I feel like I shouldn't miss anything because its amazing just to be pregnant. I guess now that it is summer and I have friends going to theme parks and stuff I do miss that.
-What I am looking forward to? V-day! V-day! V-day!
-Weekly wisdom? Remind yourself if you really need that third slice of pizza. You aren't really eating for 2.
-Milestones? Half-baked my sweet baby boy!!!
