Thank you Nana!!!

Nana came by on Saturday to deliver the bassinet, diapers (cloth) and help with planting in the backyard. This is where Logan will be sleeping when he comes home from the hospital. It rocks, and the basket comes right out of the frame so that you can set him anywhere in the house. Now he has a comfy place to sleep for his first couple of months. (maybe more.....)

We were able to get all of the diapers washed and ready for his arrival, I think I am going to be nesting the entire 9 months. I just can't seem to sit still, everytime I think of something that needs to be cleaned, washed, planted or fixed we get right to work. Some people say I may have a little bit of OCD, but I am just excited to prepare for his arrival, and any little thing I can do ahead of time, like washing diapers and putting them back together, helps keep me relaxed.
Stay tuned for more to come with Logan's room.........Daddy is still working on that closet.

Clean Bill of Health....

We went for our 20 week ultrasound on Tuesday. Everything is accounted for, he has 10 fingers and toes, a nose just like his Daddy. We were lucky enough to watch him in the womb for close to 45 minutes while the ultrasound technician made sure everything was growing as expected.
Mommy didn't do too well with that though, laying on your back with the weight of your uterus pressing down on your main blood flow can cause and did cause a little bit of nausea and light headedness. The technician was kind enough to let me roll to my side so I was able to get the blood flowing properly though. Logan was doing just fine while all of this took place, he rolled around, moved his arms, and legs. Also, as you can see from the picture was sure to show us that he likes to suck his thumb. I don't think he is very photogenic though, everytime the technician had the point of interest to take a picture Logan was sure to move.
We want to be sure and WARN you now...........Lock up your daughters!!!!!!!! As his dinha said he is going to be POPULAR!!!!!
Yes, You are looking right between his legs, we knew from our extra testing, that there was no doubt he is a boy, however we want to be sure and share with everyone a picture of proof!
Now you can't say that we didn't warn you!

We did It, We are officially Registered!!!!!

Mitchell and I did it, we went up to Sacramento and registered for EVERYTHING that we need. I don't think he realized how much it takes to care for a baby. He had more fun doing the toys, and bath time goodies than anything else. Goore's in Sacramento is a huge, 30,000 square foot warehouse complete with everything you need. I picked there to register first because although it is far away, you can shop online and if you go to any other baby store and buy something that is on my registry at Goore's you simply tell the store you are at to request the item be taken off my registry at Goore's and they make the call. But have no fear we are also registered at Target and Pottery Barn Kids, for those of you that wish to go into a more local store.

I went with Dinha (Lisa) to Target on Thursday night to get that completed, that was fun. She was so excited, and was reminding me of when she had Amy, almost 14 years ago! Wow!! I really do know how time flys, I am cherishing everyday of being pregnant and will cherish everyday when Logan is finally here.

I am starting to feel like myself again, which is good. No more morning sickness, headaches or nausea. YEAH!!!! The first three months were rough. We will keep you up to date, next week we have our 20 week check up with Dr. King, whom is fabulous by the way. Then we are off to Walnut Creek for our final two appointments with the prenatal specialist and prenatal cardiologist. Can't wait to hear Logan's hearbeat, I wish I had a hearbeat monitor.

Garage Sale & Yard Work!!

While Grandpa Caldwell, Nana and Daddy did some yard work for Mommy, she was off making some money.........

at the Garage Sale!!!! it ended up being a very successful sale. We made some money, but most importantly got rid of most everything. Customers, of course started arriving at 7:30, and even though Mommy had been up since 3:30 I got right into it and bargained away.

Also, while the sale and yard work was going on Nana painted Logan's crown molding. Stay tuned to see Logan's room complete.
