Yes, we still have 18 weeks until due date, but since we have already purchased baby's crib, it is set up and in waiting. We found the crib in Dallas at BabyWorld (great store with great selection). We thought about the convertible bed which can become a day bed, then a twin, then even a full, but decided against it. This is just a standard crib but we love it. I have the furniture from my mom's room growing up that I am going to pair with the crib. We have work to do but still time! J did a great job getting the crib set up, he was as excited as me. As for the bedding, its on the bed too, in need of ironing and some additional add-ons for bows and what not, but its there. That is exciting too. We are having fun planning for our baby girl.
As the title says, we are making room for baby...especially me. For those of you who wanted belly pics, here you go. I am at 22 weeks now and feel like just over like the last 5 days, I've really started to look pregnant and not just chubby in the middle. I definitely don't feel very comfortable in my normal clothes and am thankful for the stretchy bands on maternity pants. I have always kinda dreaded wearing those, but they are actually quite surprisingly comfy.
I am feeling very blessed these days. I think I am constantly aware of God's blessings to me, but often lose sight and forget to be truly thankful. 1 John 3:1 says 'How great is the love that the Father has poured out on us, that we should be called the children of God! And that is what we are!' How great is that promise, that we are His children and everyday He pours out His love to us. The baby moves around a lot in side of me, which is probably the coolest feeling I've ever had. It makes me so excited about seeing her and holding her sweet little hand. Thank you for praying for us and we look forward to rejoicing and thanking God for the little miracle to come in February. He is good and I wish you all a great day!
