How stinking cute are these?!

So we have decided to go with the all-in-one cloth diaper route. Before you give me that horrible look I know you all have on your faces, let me explain. These are not your grandmother's cloth diapers! No pins or folding involved! And they are microfiber! These are just like disposable diapers, but you stick them in the washer! To each their own of course (and I am by no means a disposable-diaper snob) but after a lot of research, this is our choice.
So anyway, how stinking cute is that?! A fact which I will enjoy for now, as I know that come January, they will be more stinking, less cute! :)
We ordered our first batch from a Vermont (yeah!!!) woman with a small company called Monkey Snuggles.

Hello from the start of week 21, and what a week it's been!

Poor baby O. was thrown for quite a loop on friday when I had to get oral surgery- but she kicked the WHOLE time, which was very reassuring!

We did our baby registry this weekend which was fun, but I never thought it would be so overwhelming! I really have zero idea what to get in terms of bottles and their accessories, so I left that part blank. Drop ins? Slow-flows? oi vey!

PS Several people have asked me why we're keeping the name a secret- we're not actually, we just aren't posting it on here!

20 Weeks!

20 weeks! We're halfway to the finish line!
Not a whole lot to say this week- the bébé is still kicking away, and is starting to kick hard enough to occasionally be felt from the outside of my belly!

Can I say that the whole"Oh, your hair and skin will be sooo beautiful your second trimester!" thing I was told by several people is a bunch of hooey! Yes, HOOEY I say!! My hair has been a total football helmet [Read: "Relax! You can't screw up her hair. Just tease it and make it look like a brown football helmet."- Steel Magnolias] and the hormones are reeking havok on my face- this was made clear to me at dinner the other night when a friend's three year old proceeded to tell me "my shirt is polka-dots, like your face!" LOL, out of the mouths of babes! I'm glad I can keep a sense of humor about allof these lovely changes my second trimester has brought on, but it makes me wonder what other fibs I've been told about pregnancy! :)

It's a...

Well folks, we had our "BIG" ultrasound today! The baby looks healthy and has of the right appendages in the right places!

So... it's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know whats weird? The doctor didn't give us a u/s pic of the whole baby, he gave us a cute of of the foot and one of the baby's hoo-haa. Won't THAT be an interesting page to put in the baby book! LOL :)

PS We do have a name picked, but we aren't posting it on here ;-)

19 weeks

Woohoo 19 weeks! The bebe is doing somersaults in there today! It's been constant moving since we got up! Tee hee, what a feeling! I love it! I can't wait until tuesday to see our little munchkin on film!

This week the main area of growth is the sensory development (his/her brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch.)

18 Weeks

We're 18 weeks and feeling good (despite some pain from monday's brush with danger). Baby O is now about 6 inched long and 7oz. :) The main formation this week is the baby skin- there are now 2 distinct layers, although the skin is still very thin and sensitive. The hair is also starting to grow and he/she can yawn (how cute is that?) :)
NINE DAYS until we find out if it's a boy or a girl!!!!!!!!!!!!
