Thanks for everything! And look at this sweet dress and onezy Buddy came home with a few weeks ago...I could have cried it was too sweet seeing him standing there holding these tiny girl clothes that he picked out while at Target. So sweet, I hope I never forget that.

I have to apologize to Auntie Victoria because I need to make a post of her recent investments to sweet potato's wardrobe. And that will be coming this week, hopefull along with pictures of my belly, a post on Buddy's clothes he bought and one on idea #1 for the nursery.
I also have another doctor's appointment this week on Wednesday. Nothing big, just a monthly check-up, but at week 20 we will be getting our halfway mark ultrasound. I really love these ultrasounds, it is so weird to see her moving around in there. It makes everything so real, but also really mind-blowing. I sit there with a wrinkled brow and think this is so weird I can't comprehend that there is a little person INSIDE ME, but I can't take my eyes off the screen and I could probably sit there for hours watching, but sadly they only last about 5 minutes :(
More to come, keep us in your prayers! Especially as we try to figure out a name...I am trying not to stress, but it is getting a little overwhelming.
P.S. I think I felt her move for the first time on Friday night! Flutter, flutter, flutter

The first thing I picked up was the bodysuit with "I Love Mom" weird that someone will call me Mom and I will be a mom to someone....

And our reaction to the news (yesterday) that we are having a girl....I am sure if we took it again today we would be way less uncomfortable and way more excited!

Boy or girl? Hopefully we will find out this week! We will be heading up to The Veranda sometime this week (maybe today!) to see if we can see what our little avocado really is! I think Buddy is more excited than I am because he keeps asking me when we are going and I keep telling him whenever you get off work this week so give me your schedule!
Hopefully we will be able to get it on video so I can post that and a few pictures from the ultrasound and maybe some of our reaction (those will probably be hilarious). Make sure to make your guess if you haven't yet, because time is running out and you want to be right!
What is my guess?....Boy.

This one is made out of tissue paper and a wire wreath frame. Once i find out what our little orange is (boy or girl) I want to make one for the door to their room in either this white, or blues if a boy and pinks if it is a girl. I am super excited about it so i want to find out soon!
And i think i want to make this one for the front door, a nice rustic touch for our aspiring cottage.
I would change the ribbbon, possibly gingam in a fun spring color and another wooden tie. A fun flower, or eggs, really anything i can find that is cute.I think i will start with the burlap because my front door is begging for something and it will be the cheaper.
I have another wreath that is awesome below made out of old book pages and a foam ring. I think i will try to find a HUGE ring and make this wreath to put over our couch. The blank wall is really needing some help and i think this will be a cute fix for now.
But i have to get through a wedding this weekend before i can begin my projects, but i am so excited it probably won't detour me from going to the fabric store to get my supplies today!
More pictures to come later on how they all turn out!

More to come next week, when we will find out if it is a boy or girl! That one might actually be a video, but I probably will do a picture or two as well.

I wish I had video footage from the first time we tried because it was hilarious to see my mom and Mrs. Kathy both fighting over who could find it better and one awful doppler cutting on and off by its own will. Once we found/stole the round doppler (not that flat one, Mrs. Kathy hates that one) it came in pretty clear, but was still a little muffled. This one is much better.
