A Work in Progress...

Here we are at 27 weeks.

These are some pics of Henry's room. It's a work in progress, of course, but I wanted to show you guys what we have so far. I took a pic of all the walls, so I'll try my best to explain what's going on. It's not nearly as organized as we'd like it...a work in progress for sure! :-)

This is the accent wall. I'm standing in the doorway.

Moving to the right...I got some of the accent wall so that it would make more sense. We're going to get a chair and ottoman to put in the corner.
Still moving to the right...You can see the corner of the bookshelf in the pic above.

Last one adjacent to the door.

A close call...

Well I haven't posted a belly pic in a while b/c I've been sick. I felt so bad and probably couldn't stand still b/c I've been coughing so much! Good news, though, I'm feeling much better! Ahhh...The wonders of medicine and my wonderful doctor! I'll try to get a pic up this weekend.

I was in a fender bender on Wednesday of this week, and we had a little scare! A lady rear ended me in traffic on the way home from work. She came with such force that I hit the man in front of me...fantastic! Henry got jostled around a bit and didn't like it. Thankfully, Jared was only a few cars in front of me, so I called him first and he came to the rescue. Yes, I called 911 and the police came, but Jared's my hero! The officers were very strict with me and wouldn't let me out of the car. I was feeling some pressure where Henry is, so we went to the hospital per the EMTs suggestions.

Now for those of you who know Jared, you know that's he's a pretty calm, relaxed guy. He drives extremely make that, annoyingly careful! We've often joked that he "might" drive 5 over the speed limit when the baby comes. I don't know what got into him, but he took charge and drove us to the hospital with flashers on at 90 miles an hour!!!! To look at him, he was cool and collected. You'd think he was going 60 or so, but when I looked at the speedometer...the needle was WAY OVER!!! He even cut through a parking lot! He never showed a sign of distress, however. Once we got to the hospital, they hooked me up to some monitors: One to gauge Henry's heartbeat and one to gauge my contractions. We were there for 6 hours! They did all kinds of blood tests and such. They let us go home but had some concerns (I will save you from all the details). So needless to say, we went home feeling apprehensive. On Thursday I went to see my doctor, Dr. Eisenberg. We listened to the heartbeat, and he did everything necessary to make sure Henry was safe. I LOVE him, I LOVE him, I LOVE him!!! He takes such great care of us! Dr. E assured me that everything's okay. YEA!!!

Jared and I will go in for a sonogram in 2 weeks. We opted to get the 3D, 4D sono done. I can't wait to see that little "Too" (Henry's nickname in the "Oo" Family). He'll be so much bigger!

25 weeks

Well, as you can see the belly is growing more and more each day. I go to the dr. on Tuesday, so we'll see what he has to say about that. When we set up our next appointment, we'll have another sonogram. I can't wait to see him and how much he's grown! The last sono I had was at 16 or 17 weeks...He'll be such a big boy! :-)

This is Henry's coming home outfit. I just love it! I'm not completely sold on the hat, but I'm obsessed with his little outfit. He'll probably wear this for his first picture.

We also got his crib and armoire this Sunday. We are putting his room together, so I'll post pics when we set it up how we want. (Ashley, I may need some help...all the furniture looks wrong, as I don't know where to put everything - I may be sending you some pics...I want the space to be as open as possible). I still can't believe we got free furniture!!! Casey and Kathy, I don't believe thank you is enough! Andrea, you too, for introducing us!

We went to our friend's parents' house (Andrea's parents) on Sunday for Father's Day. This family is so loving and have really adopted us. Andrea's dad, John, is a huge Chicago Bears fan, so there's always rival talk when we come over, seeing as we are big Packer's fans (they are America's team!). So John thought it would be cute to give Jared some baby Bears gear for Father's Day...check out the shirt bib! Then he felt bad and gave us some Packers gear, too! It's got 2 onesies, a cute pacifier, a wrist rattle, and a hat. I cannot believe he spent $$$ on Packer stuff!!! We are so grateful to such great friends! GO PACK!!!!

We think we have a name...

We've decided on Henry Micah. We liked both names and then Jared came home from work one day and suggested that we put them together...SURE! We think it's a good, strong name for our little man...I wonder if it will stick! :-)
