Checking of the Check List!

Randy and I have gotten many things accomplished since last time I posted! One big thing that we accomplished is painting the nursery! I actually was able to help out a lot...in fact I did most of it, then he did all of the parts I would have to reach for! I think Rex will love his nursery, below are some pictures of the before and after! :)

White Walls

Yellow! :)

Randy finishing up what I couldn't do. I did most of the painting while he was doing All-Region

Picture time while he is working. Typical. :)

Rex's theme is going to be Noah's Ark, the nursery is a beautiful yellow/gold color, which I matched perfectly to his bedding by using Home Depot's Color Smart System. :) His bedding also has greens, blues, maroons, browns and tans in it! I can't wait to get furniture and all his goodies in there!

Randy and I also ordered new carpet for the bedrooms. Most of our house is hardwood floors (recentely done last March) but we wanted to new carpet in the bedrooms before Rex gets here. The carpet should come in very soon and be installed very soon! After that...BABY FURNITURE! :) I also finally got registered for my baby shower. Target and Babies 'R' Us. That was a huge undertaking, but so much fun! I am just glad to finally be getting somethings done, I definitely do not want to wait until the last minute to do everything.

The pregnancy is progressing very well. I had my 23 week appointment the other day, and the heartbeat was still strong! Actually he kicked the nurse a few times while she was working...silly boy. He is actually measuring at 25+ weeks right now...I am only 23. He's going to be a long boy! Here are my photos from weeks 22 and 23:

Burrr. :)

Things have been mighty chilly around here lately! We had a good blast of snow on January 9, 2011. It was really fun and school was even let out for the next day! Below are some pics from our snow day!

Driving around in the snow like crazy people!

There's me!

Our house in the snow!!

Poor new grill! We hadn't gotten a cover for it yet at the time!

Rex was showing extra well that day! :) So I took a picture of the snow for him that he couldn't see!

Our walkway. :)
It was a very fun day, but we were ready for it to warm up after that! I am now 21 weeks along in my pregnancy! I FINALLY got some great maternity clothes from Gap and Old Navy. I just ordered some online and luckily they all fit. Silly Longview has no good stores to speak of...NONE. Here is my 21 week picture!

21 weeks. Baby is the size of a spaghetti squash.

Randy and I are headed back to Kansas tomorrow to go to his grandmother's funeral. We were very sad to lose her this week but we know she is in a better place; and best of all...she is with her husband Rex again. I hope she tells him all about the soon to be baby Rex. :) Dorothy and Rex Kiser were amazing people and I am glad heaven gets to enjoy their company; they deserve nothing but the best.

Until next week...stay warm.
