of the most hilarious people in Macon.
Outrageous couple did not counter or accept our offer...
In the words of their realtor "They REALLY love the house, and
they may be back in a couple of weeks."
Are you kidding me...
They have officially lost their minds!
I have felt Rowan kicking yesterday and today.
There's no denying there is a baby in my belly.
It weirds Alan out.
I find it totally awesome.
A few of the ladies at work were asking me
if I am sure I am pregnant...because I'm still not showing.
Then they said...Well, we have seen the pictures so we know its true. ;)
Do-Si-Dos, Samoas, Tagalongs, and Thin Mints.
The crib sheet and crib skirt came in the mail today!
Bumper is on backorder, but should be here soon.
Gage is battling his first little cold.
Pray he gets to feeling better!
We've got some playing to do this weekend!
Would you look at that ticker...19 weeks!
Less than 5 months till our due date!
I found the most precious song tonight by accident.
It's the 1st one on my playlist.
(Baby Mine by Alison Kraus)
Ok...gotta get to bed.

processed lunch meat!
~ My friend Sarah sent me some Pampers diaper coupons! Thanks Sarah!
~ I also received a precious birth announcement from
my dear friend Laura in the mail.
~ Sleeping in with nothing to do today!
~ Went by to look at the house above. We love it.
Is it the one? Who knows?
~ Ribbon burpcloths and a monogrammed blanket for Rowan.
~ A free subscription to Parents magazine for 2 years.
Don't ask me how I got it.
~ Gifts to Grow points at pampers.com.
You accumulate points and then you get to order "free" stuff.
~ A new Southern Living magazine.
~ Looking forward to spending the weekend with Lauren, Chris and Gage.
~ The crib skirt and sheet will ship this week.
Bumper should follow soon.
We ordered the one from Restoration Hardware.
~ Finding out that Kroger carries Stoneyfield Farms yogurt.
I love it! It's in the organic section.
Thanks Laura! They have 6 flavors too!
~ Buying baby wipes that are on sale + a .50 cents off coupon!
~ Staring at pictures of Rowan. Wondering what he is doing today.
~ Nursery ideas.
~ An e-mail from Lauren.
~ The ladies at Subway telling me what a good "man"
I have and telling me he always tells them about
his "pregnant wife". And telling me that Alan makes their day!
He frequents Subway for lunch if you couldn't tell.
~ Alan telling me not to stress.
Some days are rough! It's refreshing to make a list of things to be thankful for!
What are you thankful for today?

I was listening to a praise and worship lullaby CD.

Look at that precious hand!
Look at that little face!
So perfect, so detailed!
Can't wait to kiss him!
Hi Mom and Dad!
Look at his arms and his hands!
My little sweetness!
We had a great time tonight.
I feel so full of love and joy!
It is truly a miracle...
to see the way God has knit him so perfectly
together in my womb.
How can a person not believe in God?
I am simply overjoyed.
Our little baby boy.
Our little Rowan...

So ready to get involved somewhere!
I've spent the afternoon on Facebook chatting
It's amazing how God brought his whole life together!

chocolate covered strawberries,
and the sweetest card from my hubby!
Oh how I love him!
We got a sweet surprise this afternoon...
an OFFER on our house!
It wasn't the greatest...well, actually the offer stunk!
But at least we got an offer.
We counter-offered this afternoon!
We are praying, as we have been, that it will be what God wants.
Please continue to pray with us!
I'm thankful for God.
For He is love.
Pure. Perfect. Complete.
Through Him we can love others.

The baby's heart rate was 140.
We are going to First Photo on Monday to find
Don't forget to cast your vote at the top right
picture plus 2 jumbo packages of Pampers Wipes
for 46 dollars. I saved a whopping 40 dollars!
If you are pregnant or just had a baby you need to sign up! :)
Alan and I bought this sweet little outfit when
we went to Pigeon Forge at a little
store called Smoky Mountain Babies.
It says "God's creation" at the top.
On the leg it says "God saw all that He had made
and said that it was good".
It's so adorable.
It's made by a company called His Gem.
Every piece of clothing they make has a scripture on it.
Lauren gave me a boy and girl version of this outfit
It is probably my most favorite outfit yet!
It says "Thank Heaven for little boys".
Alan told me last night that his Valentines Day plans
were a bust. He went on to explain that he had tried to call
First Glimpse at least 6 times, he had e-mailed them, and
he had even driven up to Macon to go to the place.
It was closed when he got there even though the sign said
they were open till 5:00.
And he still hasn't gotten in touch with anyone there.
So, I told him it wasn't a big deal. (It's really not.)
I actually feel bad that he went to all that trouble for me.
He is so sweet to try to surprise me like that!
I asked him that if I called today and got
in touch with someone could we still go.
He said yes!
So this morning, I called first thing and left a message.
Hopefully they will call me back! Soon!
We may be getting a Gender Determination 2D
I would love to go on Saturday!
I'm just ready for some confirmation!
I don't think I can stand to wait until the second week in March.
And anyway, I found out that the sweet, little
boy bedding from Restoration Hardware is on sale!
The catalog has much better prices than the internet. Who knew?
We are off to our 16 week doctor's appointment this afternoon.
I'll post an update later tonight!
I forgot to mention that yesterday was
Friday, February 6, 2009
for baby bedding.
I love this one!
It's my top choice.
Restoration Hardware Baby and Child has
the most beautiful baby stuff!
A khaki chair would go great with this.
I love the chocolate brown, baby blue, and khaki combination.
It is very simple and baby-ish.
I found this one on Target.com
It is really cute also.
It has all of the same colors minus the khaki.
If it ends up being a girl I will be getting the pink and chocolate polka dots from before. I really love that one!

I know this doesn't look like baby furniture...
but this is the furniture we have picked out for the baby.
To be more economical, we decided to go ahead
and purchase an adult bedroom suite for the baby.
We are gonna buy a crib to match.
The reasons are...
1. It is cheaper to buy one crib and a bedroom suite that
will grow with the baby for it's entire life.
2. When baby #2 comes along, we will buy another adult
sized bedroom suite that will grow with that baby and
he/she will use the same crib.
3. Adult furniture is bigger and feels more substantial.
4. We can use the queen sized bed and night stand in our guest
room until it is time for the baby to move out of the crib.
5. Baby furniture is over-priced. Especially the baby furniture
at the specialty baby stores. (Read that in Baby Bargains.)
Even though it is so adorable.
6. We wanted our child to have its own furniture that
he/she can take with him/her whenever he/she moves
out of the house.
7. We will never worry about buying furniture for the
baby ever again.
We are gonna use the dresser as the changing table.
And attach the mirror later.
It looks very masculine which will
be perfect for a baby boy!
It is classic enough that hopefully it will not age.
We are also gonna buy this swivel glider below.
Once we find bedding we are going to pick a fabric to match.
I have no idea what I want in the nursery now.
Today I started thinking about red...
(I'm allowed to change my mind aren't I.)
I'm thinking chocolate brown or khaki for the chair.
Something that could be used for a girl or boy,
and then later used in the living room or our bedroom.
Well, this makes it feel very real!
And it also reminds me once again that our house hasn't sold,
and our baby really doesn't have a room yet.
Please pray for our house to sell very soon!
I love the ribbon fringe on these!
I like the blue and brown one below!

We have a couple who are very interested in our house!
I am cautiously hopeful!
Please pray that this couple will be approved for a loan.
Also, no nausea!
16 weeks tomorrow! It's flying by!
The cradle came today...its gorgeous!
Can't wait to have a home to set it up in!
I'm tired! Sleep tight!

My old neighbors gave me this pacifier clip.
It's white, soft and beautiful!
Here is my ever expanding baby closet.
We have priced diapers everywhere. Sam's has them cheapest.
I have found a crib I love.
I have called several places to get prices.
We still need to go look.
I think I may be back at square one as far as bedding.
Alan said his boy isn't going to have polka dots in his nursery.
I'm trying to get mom and Paige to help
me make some!
(but always seem to anyway).
I am so thankful for him.
Well that's all I have for now.
And guess what...no nausea for 4 days!
