And another Doctor’s appointment means another ultrasound.. This time with a much less wiggly baby. Unfortunately we didn’t get any great pictures.. but did confirm one thing for my sister..
And more proof of the giant in my stomach…
His legs are reallly long and his feet are really huge.. but its cute to see that his legs are starting to get some fat on them..
He was sucking on his fingers during part of the ultrasound.. not just his thumb.. all of his fingers!
He has recently become VERY possessive of his “bubble” He gets pretty ticked when someone is in his way.
He’s been kicking Aaron quite a bit lately.
I realize that is highly inappropriate, but it’s the first thing that I think of when I see these
But aren’t they pretty?
I hesitantly entered a couple cooking contest for this summer. I’m still not sure if I really want to do them.. but baby needs a crib and a dresser.. So I need to win some money somewhere. I don’t think it’s just going to fall out of the sky! Thankfully these are contests where you bring the prepared food. I don’t have to cook them there.
The first one is a Chocolate contest. It has to use Girardelli chocolate and not more than 10 other ingredients. I knew I wanted something different that would stick out. Also something good for the holidays. Something someone could make to go on a cookie plate for Christmas.
I originally was just going to make chocolate chip cookie dough, but realized that they chocolaty taste was worth 40% of the score. So I threw a little cocoa powder into the cookie dough! These are supppper yummy. But also very rich. I brought them to work today to test them on my guinea pigs.. I also need a good brownie.. I have an idea, but It’s going to take some fine tuning.
More on those later…
Christmas in August…
On the way home the other day I had this freak out moment. I’m 24 weeks now. 24 weeks mean if your baby is born, it will survive. Which in my head means, “Your baby could be born any second.”
All we have, is 1 – alligator onesie that my aunt sent me (that is SUPER cute) and a beehive mobile (that she also sent me and is SUPER cute) and a rocker/glider that is still in a box in our living room. THAT’S IT! For a baby that could be born.. any second!
So as we have this freak out conversation all the way home, we pull into the drive way and see this HUGE box on the porch.
Aaron brings it is and it’s addressed to “Pookie” c/o Ryley and Aaron.
I immediately knew it was from my sister. It weighed a ton and I couldn’t imagine what was in it. Aaron’s pulled out this box.. (Isn’t it cute? i love it!!!)
Aaron thinks it looks like a robot. It does.. I’ll admit it! But it’s one of the best swing. It can swing side to side or you can turn the seat so it swing front to back.. AND it plugs in!! So you don’t have to waste batteries! I love it! It retails everywhere else for no less than $100. The typical price is $160. We got it with tax and shipping for $74!!! Next on the list, a car seat, stroller and crib! If only money would fall out of the sky!
******UPDATED: I just got an email from Kohl’s. I didn’t even know it, but apparently they are doing Kohl’s cash right now. So not only did I get this swing for less than I could buy it used, I got $20 back for it!!! Unfortunately you can only use the Kohl’s cash in the store and not online, but I don’t think I’ll have too hard of a time spending it! Thanks Kohls!**********
I guess that’s all for today…..
