I absolutely love surprises. We had our 20 week appt today (it has actually been 21 weeks) and I must say, it was pretty exciting. David and I have been thinking it would be fun to wait to find out the sex of the baby. Then we thought it would be cool for the ultrasound technician to put the answer in a sealed envelope so we could open it if we couldn’t take the suspense any longer. So, Jenny made us these fun “BOY” and “GIRL” cards for the tech to put in an envelope along with a photo for “proof”.
Let me tell you, there are very few REAL surprises in one’s life, and I think we should appreciate the opportunity when it arises. So, feeling like I am the stronger one when it comes to not spoiling surprises (sorry, David, you know it’s true) I hid the envelope somewhere in our house! Muahahaha…
So, not to leave you high and dry, here is a music video I made (cuz Baby likes to dance!) and a few 3D pics from the appointment. Two eyes. Two ears. Four limbs. All love, baby!
Pass the mike
That is a REAL baby in there! CRAZY.
Will Baby have a Schulze or Demafiles nose? Only time will tell.
Happy birthday David!! David’s birthday week recap to come…
So, technically it’s already been over a MONTH since my last post on Cleatus the fetus, which just goes to show how fast this whole baby thing is progressing. Here’s what’s been going on since you saw us last:
Baby bump at 13 weeks
Ok, I’m going to put a cute round onion pic at 17 weeks because the 18 week one is a gross hairy sweet potato that looks really obscene.
17 weeks, 5 days, new bangs!
So, I’ve been able to feel baby kick and squirm believe it or not. Its started with a little gurgling and fluttering (like gas!) lol, but then there would be times I would feel some definite poking going on around in there. Pretty trippy, if you ask me. Nausea is subsiding, but migraines and heartburn are in full effect. YEAH!
We are just starting to work on the nursery, so there will be a post on that soon. David is super excited and is in serious nesting mode (or should I say scraping, retexturing, painting mode) In the meantime, enjoy more spring redbud pics! I LOVE AUSTIN IN THE SPRING.
David and I are happy to announce that we are expecting our first baby August 26! Our lives as David and I know it, are going to change forever. I’m just plain speechless. How can anyone sum up this feeling in just a few words? We are excited, hopeful, curious, nervous, happy, and awestruck all in one breath. Out of so many things in life one can experience, this may be the ultimate adventure. We are taking it one day at a time, but it’s going to be one crazy ride!
Peanut at 8 weeks – Can you believe we already heard a heartbeat??
We are so very happy to introduce the newest member of the Schulze clan. Meet Kona! Our 9-week-old Staffie (American Staffordshire Terrier). We waited a year after our beloved Jasmine Dogg passed away to get a new furry friend, and we decided this month to take the plunge to adopt Kona. We got Kona from Austin Pets Alive! a local rescue group who gets many of its dogs and cats from the Town Lake Animal Shelter. Most of the animals are days away from being euthanized when APA steps in. They believe that EVERY animal deserves a long life in a caring home.
We are so excited about having her grow up with us!
Aren’t I a doll? Seriously. Don’t I look like a stuffed animal?
So I’ve been really bad about taking photos this holiday season – not that I’m not inspired, but I just wanted to relax and not worry about lugging around equipment, getting the right angle, capturing every single moment. But here are a few photos I did take from our trip to Houston to visit my family.

There are few things in life I love more than drooly babies!
