So Behind!

I have SO MUCH to blog about!! I am super behind...

Matt's graduation, pregnancy, the month of May, Father's Day, my first Relief Society Lesson, etc. Whew... boy have I dropped the ball.

Lets start with my prego-ness...

Good news is: I'm finally starting to feel human again!!! :) Yipee!!
I don't there is any bad news at this point haha.

Here are the latest 2 belly shots from 13 and 14 weeks. I definitely need to take the pictures with my camera and not my phone. The quality is so much better, but the phone is usually within reach.

Bean is now the size of a large lemon, and is definitely starting to poke out a bit. :) According to the fun emails I get each week, I should be able to start feeling movement within the next month or so. We get to hear the heartbeat again on Friday (another dr's appointment!) and our gender ultrasound is coming up next month!!! I can't believe our second anniversary is right around the corner. It turns out that it falls just 2 days after my appointment was originally scheduled, so I switched... and we'll be able to find out if Bean is a boy or girl on our anniversary! :) :) Cheesy, yes... but I am SOO FLIPPIN EXCITED! :) :)

Matt's Wish List

This is all Matt has requested... it's called "The Diaper Dude", go figure. :) My husband is adorable!

Wish List...

So I've been planning on blogging about my Wish List for months. I got the idea from this great blog by Jen! :) Initially the list was going to be full of amazing curtains, pillows that I'm in love with, a cute little while dress for when we go to the Temple, and possibly a gorgeous pair of these:

With the recent turn of events in our lives, my wish list has changed... DRAMATICALLY. Today, I checked 2 CVS's in search of the perfect diaper rash ointment that happens to be on sale. (Don't laugh, it's typically $29.99 and it's on sale for $7.49!!) Since I haven't register yet, as we won't know Bean's gender for 47 more days -yes I'm counting down- I felt the need to put together a little Wish List. Enjoy! :)

We have the crib that matches this changing table! It's much darker, and I LOVE it!

One thing that I have quickly learned, is that being a "belly sleeper" like myself and being pregnant do not mix together. So I have quite a time barricading myself in with pillows, trying not to roll onto my belly in the middle of the night. It's pretty much a lost cause, I just end up uncomfortable and with zero sleep. So I'm beginning to think one of these may be a necessity to get myself through the next six months so that I can not be a complete zombie come December.
Doesn't she look comfy!!! I miss my sleep! :(

These are not so much a wish as a necessity. Seeing as these suckers will be a constant companion in my life for the next few years, I figured they should make the list.

This next item too MUCH deliberation, reading every review and recall known to man, and LOTS of trial and error (ie: dragging Bella to Target and forced her to ride in each one as we maneuvered them in between racks of clothing) we finally decided.

I know it's not pink, blue, green, or any other fun baby-ish color. But I despise anything that attempts to be "gender neutral", it simply doesn't exist. And black is always classy. It's like a little black dress, you simply can't go wrong! :) Can't you see a cute little girl with a big bow on her head wrapped up in a fuzzy pink blanket? Or a little boy with a cute little hat and a teddy bear? Adorable.

Since Bean will be coming home in December, when it's not exactly sunny and warm, we will keep our little one fashionably warm with one of these :)

Dang, I wish they made these adult sized! (But if it looks anything like the Snuggie, I don't want it!)

What type of mommy would I be if I wasn't already drooling over bedding for our sweet Bean's nursery? We already have our favorites picked out! :)

I absolutely ADORE this bedding. I have to say, there are a billion girl bedding sets that I looove, but there are a few sets of 'boy' bedding that I like too. (Like this one...)

I suppose I'll manage to find cute boy bedding if I have to :)

And a few other things I've had my eye on:

The main problem I've come across when it comes to purchasing anything baby-related in early pregnancy, is the complete lack of ANYTHING actually gender neutral. It simply doesn't exist. Anything yellow, has blue accents. And anything green, simply screams 'boy'! This is the only semi-decent, fairly cute, article of clothing I've managed to find:

"Sweet Pea"... pretty dang cute. BUT why would I buy that, when if I just wait 47 more days, I can buy things like this:

Or this:

Cute boy clothes do exist! I've spent quite a lot of time hunting for cute bedding, clothing, furniture, maternity clothes, the perfect diaper, stroller, etc.
That's when I found it.
The Holy Grail of diaper bags. I'm in LOVE. I think I must have it.

Complete fabulousness. I will definitely have to get him a 'man-bag' if I do get this one, I highly doubt he would carry this around. I love Vera. Sigh, if only I was a billionaire.

It's fun to dream right!? Any essentials I'm missing?

I could probably write an entire blog post on the list of things I've dropped the ball on in the last 12 weeks (laundry anyone?). But I promise, a "Be Humble" post is just around the corner!
