Bookshelf....Before/After/After After

This was the bookcase before. I got it at an auction in Calera for $30. Its pretty dirty and dingy (sp?).

This is the bookshelf after a new coat of fresh white paint has been applied, its been wiped down and cleaned!

This is the same bookshelf after my mom and I placed fabric in the back of the shelves to give it some color! It was looking kinda boring with just a white background. This really made it pop! I LOVE it! I really need to thank my mom because she helped me put the new coat of paint on it and take the time to put the fabric in the back of it (very time consuming). Thanks G! I hope Easton loves it as much as we do!

4D Ultrasound- Take 2

Sweet little Angel!

He was playing with his feet! He had one little foot all the way up at his face!

Looks like little Easton might be a thumb sucker.

Here he is rubbing his little eyes.

Amazing how flexible they are! Here he is with his big toe touching his nose! He loves staring at those feet! Kevin was in disbelief that that was his toe at his face. He didn't think he could put his foot up that high.

This must be his unhappy face! =( I wouldn't be surprised if he poked himself in the eye with his toes and that's why he is upset. Silly boy!

At this visit, December 2, 2011, he was weighing 3#s 12ozs, his HR was 148 and he was head down. We cant wait to meet this good looking little man!!!

31 Weeks

This week I had what is my 32 week Doctor's appointment. I met one of the other doctors in the practice this time. I also start going every 2 weeks now instead of once a month (Cant believe it!). While at this appointment, his heart rate was a strong 148 bpm. She had trouble keeping the Doppler on him because he was moving around so much. =)

Also on this day, after my visit with the doctor, I got to go and repeat the 4D ultrasound! (Since he didn't cooperate last time). According to the ultrasound tech he is measuring 3#s 12ozs!! BIG boy! He is also head down, where he should be. We got some much better pictures this time! Check out my next post for those AMAZING photos!

He's about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds this month. He's getting so big, he's probably crowding your lungs. (You got the right!)

Your baby at 31 weeks:
He's going through major brain and nerve development.
Eye development, too. His irises now react to light!
All five of his senses are in working order.

30 Weeks


Pregnancy Highlights of Week 30:
Maternity Clothes:
Anything stretchy and comfortable. I'm lucky I get to wear scrubs at my job.
Best Moment this week: Putting all of his furniture in its right place. It really feels like its not far away now. The room has more function and flow.

Gender: It's a boy!
Movement: All the time! Love it! Kevin and I were lying on the couch and Kevin's head was next to my belly and Easton kicked him in the head multiple times. haha!

Food Craving: Don't know if you can count this as a food, but crunching on ice has become an obsession of mine lately! I cant get enough of it.
What I miss: A margarita every now and then.

Sleep: About the same. That awful RLS and legs going numb.

What I am looking forward to: Retaking our 4D Ultrasound.
Belly Button: IN
Symptoms: Some trouble bending over, especially at work. It just takes the breath right out of you.

Your 15.2- to 16.7-inch, 2.5- to 3.8-pound baby continues to grow.
His skin is getting smoother.
But his brain is getting wrinklier -- to make way for all that essential brain tissue.
He's now strong enough to grasp a finger!
