22 weeks and a nursery sneak peek

Here's the past due 22 weeks pic.............this one was early one morning before school, and I look half asleep. I also decided horizontal stripes may not be the best choice! LOL
A little peek of the nursery without the stuff.........Matt and Uncle Tom did a good job painting and putting up chair rail! The stripes were Matt's idea, and I think they turned out cute. It is Sherwin Williams iceberg on the top of the chair rail and dancing green with something blue on the bottom.


This is from the door looking in towards the window. I will have to do another post of the furniture. We do have it in, but we are now waiting on the crib bedding, rug, and curtains to get here. My next doctor's appointment is next month, and they will be doing my glucose test and the fun 4-D ultrasound. I cannot wait to see Mattox's little face! Buying clothes for him is so fun! My sweet friend Heidi gave me a ton of clothes from her boys, and I cannot wait to see him in them! She has the best taste ever, and her boys are the cutest. Madeline's latest question is "Mama, do you think he will have black hair or brown hair?" She cannot wait, and I cannot wait to see her with him. She also said, "He will be like my new toy because I will play with him all the time!" I know she is going to be the best helper, except maybe when those poopy diapers come around, LOL He is a very active little thing and gets very excited after I eat. Matt felt him kick for the first time about a week ago, and his eyes got so big! We laughed and laughed. Thank you Lord for this little blessing!

20 weeks

Okay so I'm a little late with my 20week post, so soon I'll have to do my 22 week. Forgive the red eyes, because I didn't take the time to load to cybershot and edit. This pic was from New Years Eve when we took mama to the Buccaneer to eat.........it was super yummy as always. I am feeling super huge these days and thinking this boy is gonna be big! We are working on the nursery, so pics soon to come on that. We put up a chair rail and painted the bottom with blue and green stripes and the top with a lighter blue. I ordered the nursery furniture already because I had heard nightmares of things taking 2 or 3 months to come in, but we got it this past Monday. The crib is waiting to be put together. FUN, FUN! Thought I'd post a couple of my favorite Christmas gifts.
Mama got Mattox this little football player piggy bank. TOO CUTE!

And Mrs. Nancy my MIL got me this Vera diaper bag. I love the blue, green, and brown! Have to get it monogrammed. Hope you all had a great New Years! I am having trouble getting back into the swing of things after the marvelous splendor of NO schedule for two weeks. I could really get into sleeping late, afternoon naps, and plenty of time to read and watch TV!! OH WELL! And are all of you as ready for spring as I am?? I cannot wait! I would never make it up north! :)
