20 weeks – and the winner is….

SIKE!

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…

13 weeks, 18 weeks, and spring!

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.

Welcome to Babyland!

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!
