31 week check-up!

Well I continue to have excellent check-ups, and this week was right on track :)  I have gained 2 more lbs., a total of 18 lbs gained now!  I'm getting on out there, and gravity is not my friend most days, but I'm feeling pretty good overall.  Alyssah's heartbeat was 142, and belly is measuring perfectly.  I have been busy lately getting most of her clothes washed and ready for her.  I have already set aside most of the things I will be taking to the hospital for her too.  I know I'm early, but what's the point of putting them away when I'll be pulling them out in a few weeks anyway ;)  I'm getting very excited for my daughter's arrival.  It's so weird to say that still...  I still have some things to get for her, but it's coming together.  My friend and I still have to sew her bumper for her crib, but hopefully we can get that done before Christmas.  Life is starting to get a little chaotic with the holidays approaching!  I love it :)  Happy Thanksgiving!

Shutterfly's photo card promotion!

This year Shutterfly is doing a blog promotion for their photo cards.  All you have to do is blog about the promotion, talk about your favorite cards and you get 50 free!!  It's an awesome deal, plus they have some great designs.  I have been looking at several other sites, but Shutterfly has such a huge selection that I have found so many I like!  It's going to be so hard to choose. Click here to get started.

Our family is in the process of changing, and I wanted to document that this Christmas season.  Next Christmas we will have a little girl to add to our family photos.  One of our friends recently took pictures of us as a family and of just me and Mark.  This one is my favorite.  I wanted to select a card that I could use for several pictures.  This is the one I will most likely use, although there are others that I love.  Click here!

I also like this one. Click here to see!  This is an option if I only use 2 pictures.

And if I decide to just use one picture, I like this one.  I love how elegant this one is!  Click here!

And just because this one is fun... Click here!

Now that I have told you about this awesome opportunity, if you are interested here's the link :)
I hope all you bloggers out there take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.  It will help you out, and you will be getting a fabulous product.  I ordered a photo book from Shutterfly last year, and it turned out great.  Go here to see what they have and how to get started!
I'm getting very excited about Christmas, and I can't wait to order my cards!

30 weeks and growing!

I had my check-up last week (29 1/2 weeks), and everything is still going great for me and baby Alyssah.  I gained another 2lbs, now a total of 16 lbs gained.  My belly is right on target and blood pressure was good.  Her heartbeat was 136.  I am now starting to feel very pregnant, but it's almost over.  I know once the holidays roll around, it will be no time.  By the way, I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week!  I guess I need to start Christmas shopping...

Here are the latest pics :)
29 weeks at my baby shower...pics coming soon!

30 weeks...today actually :)

October 30, 2010

On October 30, our friend Kristy took some family pictures of us as well as a few maternity shots of me and Mark!  I wanted to include him as much as possible so he wouldn't feel left out.  I never took any cute shots when I was pregnant with him, plus he such a proud big brother already.  Here are a few...there were way too many to include them all in this post.  Some I have saved for later postings.  Just to keep you guessing ;)

 This one turned out to be my favorite :)

and just for fun...Isn't my belly button hilarious?!  It looks like a perfect nose!  HA!

Halloween 2010

This Halloween weekend was almost as busy as last year's!  Our niece's birthday party was Saturday, we took family/maternity pics, then we had trunk or treating.  I'll post about the party and pics later.  For now I wanted to share a few pictures from Halloween night. . .

Our family!

Trunk or Treating

This is the aftermath of trunk or treating...he was worn out!
