23 Weeks... let the games begin!!

Well, as we approach the next month of gestation, we also are starting the 2006 Winter Olympic Games! We love the Olympics around here.... love the Olympic spirit, love the excitement, love it all! Goonie is all about the winter games. Pretty sure there is some speed skating going on, and lots of curling. I felt a few triple lutz's earlier during the pairs figure skating, and am sure that the Goon is a gold medal contender. We're oh so proud!

Had a midwife appointment this week... All is good. Blood pressure nice and low, nothing amiss in the pee, gained 7 lbs in 4 weeks, uterus is measuring on track and all looks perfect. (wow, nice to be normal!!) Ellie was so proud of Ryan for finding the heartbeat every night. Sigh. he's already a pretty attentive father.

We have been blessed by many friends and family giving us so much baby stuff! It seems we spent most of our money making this baby, not clothing or diapering it. Other than a carseat and baby jogger (if we get a stroller, we'll get a jogger, as the park near our house has great trails) we're pretty set. We have enough clothes and diapers for at least the first 9 months. We've got all the gadgets we could imagine (swing, basinette, vibrating chair) and can't see even using them all. We've got one really great sling (although we will probably need more!) and all sorts of other things. Thankfullly we have a little time before the baby shows up though!

Today we started looking at paint colors for the nursery (although the baby will sleep in our room)... i'm painting a mural on the wall, The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss. The colors are so fun and bright! Of course I'll post pictures as it starts happening... but nothing yet.. still just an idea.

That's all for this week. No belly pix this week.... maybe next week!

One last thing... everyone who is reading has to post a comment... I'm curious who's out there!

The nursery idea is so cool, I can't wait to see pics! We just painted with no VOC paint this weekend, there is no smell or headache, it rocks!

I'm glad the fetoscope is working for you. :-)

I know it's not the lorax, but when I considered Dr. Seuss I got overly anxious and bought a 1 fish 2 fish clock. It has great primary colors. If you think you might use it, it's yours. Otherwise it will continue to gather dust.

Just let me know

Kori - I read to Kailie who updates with her friends each week during "share". Kelcie and her friends also anxiously await any new news including gender and name (you know teens). Jason and I thought that you had our old jogging stroller. I'll have him look in the rafters of the garage when he comes back tomorrow (he's at work). Glad to know all is well with you, Ryan and Goonie.
Lots of Love,
Auntie Goonie Bug

Keli and mark say- we're hoping for a crazy name that only has vowels. Love your choice of nursery motif. We've got the video- we'll set it aside for goonie when she/he's older. lovin you both from idaho.
