I just had to share this beautiful picture of Emma.

Nursery Decor

I wanted to share what we have picked out for the nursery bedding. I ordered the material swatches and love them. The colors are great. We are going to order the bedding soon and plan to paint in March. The furniture should also be in sometime around the middle of March. I am so ready to have things put together.

We are planning on painting a light beige color and using the blue and brown as accents. I think it will look beautiful with the cherry furniture we have ordered.

20 Week Belly

Here is my 20 week belly shot.

I felt him move!

Last night fir the first time that I really know of I felt Jackson move. We were listening to his heart beat with the fetal doppler. We can also hear him kick with the doppler. Well last night, I could hear him kick and I felt it so I know now what it feels like. It is a very strange feeling. I really do have a person in my belly! As I sit here and type this he is moving too. SO COOL!!

I also think that he is going through a growth spurt or something this week because I woke up in the middle of the night starving! I have not done that since 1st trimester. I got up and ate and then woke up this morning hungry again.

Today is also the day that we are going to Birmingham to register and look at all the baby stuff. I am so excited about that. You will have to look at my registry tomoor for all that cool stuff. I am registering at Babies R Us. (I will also register at Target and Walmart)

Still in shock

I still can not believe that I am almost half way through and that we are going to have a son. It just seems so sureal. He really has an identity now it seems. We are going shopping this weekend and I can't wait! It will be so much fun just to be able to look for stuff with someone in mind. Jason is already trying to find Jackson a "Game Day" shirt for football season. I am just so excited.

We Know!!!

The baby was not very cooperative and after much jiggling, rolling, smashing and moving we finally got a peak.....

It's A Boy!!!

We are super excited. Jason cried. It was so sweet. Jackson Howard will make his debut this summer.

1 more day!!

Only one more say until I have the chance to see my baby again and possibly find out the gender. I pray that baby cooperates. Also, today is the last day you have to vote for what you think the baby is going to be. I think that girl is in the lead so far. I will update tomorrow as soon as I am able to.

I am falling behind

I have been informed that I am falling behind in my posting. There has not really been anything going on so I felt I had nothing to tell but let me see what I do know.

I am 18 weeks pregnant now and have really only gained about 2 pounds (I lost a total of 18!) As of yet I don't think I have felt the baby move, if I have then I missed it or thought it was gas or something. I am still listening to the heartbeat several times a week. As of lately the heart rate has been between 135 and 145.

We have 8 days until we can hopefully find out what we are having. We are planning on going to Birmingham on the 14th to order the furniture and hopefully register at Babies R Us if we know what the baby is at that point. I am praying that this baby cooperates and lets us see what it is.

That is really all I have at this point. I will update again if anything changes.
