Diaper Bag

I was gone for most of the weekend, but ordered a really cute diaper bag earlier last week. I was hoping it would be here when I got back. I was bummed that UPS didn't drop it off, but when I went to track my package online, I noticed that it had been scanned in at the the post office in Salem. Sure enough it came through the postal service so it's here!!! Yeah!

I did a lot of research for a good bag. This one is made by JJ Cole ( I bought it through Babies R Us & found this paticular print at a $20 discount. I checked again today & it's back up to regular price, so I'm super excited that I saved some $$$.

5 Months

Yeah! Half way through my journey. It has been amazing so far. This week has been no exception. On May 21st I went in for my 20 week ultrasound. The baby looks amazing and we found out we're having a girl. Yes, another girl. Girl #4 for us. :o)

Tommy was a little bummed out at first. He was glad that she was healthy and that everything looked good. But I have to say, once we found out he was very quiet. Of couse he is better now.

After the ultrasound I took the girls to Target to pick out some clothes. Tommy had to drop Kendra off (she was babysitting), so they didn't come along. I let Tommy off the hook, I knew I had to give him a little time to adjust and let it all sink in. Alexa, Brielle & I had so much fun picking out clothes.

Before finding out we hadn't talked much about names. Tommy really wanted to wait until we knew. Once we found out I felt like the "name game" consumed me. We talked and talked about names, and in less than a week we've chosen a name for our baby girl.

Weeks 18 & 19

I can't believe I forgot to post for week 18! I'll be 19 weeks tomorrow & not a whole lot has changed, so I think this time I'll just combine the two. I'm sure more has happened than I think, but when I post week to week the changes usually seem smaller to me, although huge things are happening every day! Well, the most exciting news I have is that I have my ultrasound appt. is scheduled for May 21st at 3:30. I am so stinkin' excited! I can't wait to see this baby and to start shopping for pink or blue. Most of you know, with 3 girls already, we are hoping for a boy. But as long as we have a healthy baby I'll be happy. Our girls are so wonderful & so sweet, I really don't know what I'd do w/a boy. I'd love to find out though. :o)

We've talked a little about names, but not much. Tommy wants to wait until we know what we're having, so it's a lost battle right now. Although he did come up w/ a girls name the other day. I didn't really like it though. Only 9 more days until we find out & really start talking about names. All I know is that if it's a boy it's middle name will most likely be Thomas. So my ultrasound I will be 20 weeks & 1 day, so I will make sure to post belly & ultrasound pics.

Week 17

Week 17 was spent in California. Baby & I went on a plane ride. We went to San Diego for Arfar's (my grandfather) funeral. The trip was bittersweet, but it was nice to see family. There isn't really anything new & exciting to report this week as far as the pregnancy goes. But I still wanted to check in. Thursday is my next Dr. appt. I can't wait to get my ultrasound appt. scheduled. I'm so excited to see my baby. Really hoping there will be some cooperation & we'll get to see boy or girl parts.
