Baby Furniture

So it has finally begun to sink in that this is real! This weekend we moved all of the office furniture out...my mom was so kind to take some of it and the rest is sitting in our garage waiting for a trip to Goodwill. It was very weird to stand in the empty room and know that this was not an office any more that is was now the "babies room"!!! Soon this room will be filled with baby stuff and a real baby that would not be going back to someone else at the end of the day, this baby will be here to stay. Then I had to walk out, because that thought was just a little to weird for me, because at this time it still had not really sunk in that we are having a baby. On Sunday we took a trip back to Georgia Baby to take another look at cribs. We knew that two of the cribs that we liked were on sale and didn't want to miss out on that. We were told last time that it would take 4-8 weeks for the furniture to come in if it was not in stock, so we wanted to at least get it ordered. Well we made a decision and little did we know the crib that we wanted was in stock and ready to go home with us. So now it is not an empty room it is a room with baby furniture and that is when it hit me...This is real, we are having a baby!!! As Matt and my mom were putting together the crib Matt asked "Are we sure we want to do this"? My response was "It is a little late now!" We all got a good laugh out of it! Matt is so excited about it and really cannot stop smiling and talking about it. Every time we talk he will say "Hey we are having a baby"! Saturday night he told Andy "I can't wait"! This morning as I was making our lunches Matt calls down to me and ask me "Do you realize that we have a room full of baby furniture?" He really is going to be the best Dad!!! I have attached a picture of the furniture...of course it is the picture of the set from the Internet and we did not buy it all (the baby's room is the size of a lunchbox) We just got the crib and the shorter dresser without the hutch.


Second Trimester Already???

I am just not very good at this blogging thing yet. I have good intentions of updating it weekly just to let everyone know how it is going, but before I know it two weeks will slip by. I can't believe how fast time seems to be going. I am officially in the second trimester and very close to half way there. As of today I am 16 weeks, that hardly seems possible as we just found out what seems like yesterday! :) I am feeling good these days. I am not nearly as tired as I was in the first trimester and seem to only get a sick feeling when I let myself get too hungry! I think I may have perfected the art of snacking 6 times a day! It looks like I am taking the whole fridge with me to work these days. I am still working out with my trainer, but only have a few more sessions to go. Then I will really have to find some motivation to make myself go!

Matt and I have almost got the office cleaned out...we have one more pile of stuff to find a new home for. Then there is the furniture to decide what we want to do with. I thought we would never be able to clean out that room as I have used it as a place to put everything that didn't have a home! :) Last weekend we started looking at baby furniture. We have three that we like so far and one more place that we would like to go look. Then I am sure that it will come down to price when we make the final decision. All of the cribs that we have looked at will convert into a full size bed, so it will be able to keep growing with our little Bean!

We have also narrowed down our list of names to 1 girl name and 1 boy name. I was a little worried about that since Matt and I could not agree on anything. We started out with 4 boys names and 5 girls names and then slowly one by one marked the ones that we didn't like off the list. It was easy once we started telling people and getting reactions to the names. One of our girls names just happened to be a name of a women that murdered her husband...that one came off the list right away! So as of right now the boys name we have is Kellen Russell and our girls name is Keira Ashleigh. Unless something else comes along that we fall in love with...these are our names. We looked through 60,000 names, so I think we are pretty sure this is what the names will stay.
