Halfway There!

Yay!!!! This week is my halfway mark of my pregnancy! I have been so blessed throughout the first 20 weeks, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the next 20 go just as well. I have been feeling Baby Gage moving around quite a bit now, and I have to say, it is the neatest feeling ever. I had been telling Michael for a week or so every time I felt him kicking , and he could never feel anything, but he finally did the other night! I'm not sure, but I think he loved it!!

Mom and I went last Tuesday to register us at BABIES R US, and we had a lot of fun with it! I just never imagined there would be so many things I would need until I got there and started scanning things. I know there are probably lots of things that "Experienced Moms" could tell me that I need or don't need, so if any of you have any suggestions, that would be great! You always hear people saying "you need this" or "you don't need this", but for some reason I can never remember what they are when the time comes. I would LOVE any "new mom" advice I can get!!

Michael's Mom and Grandma went with me on Friday to BABIES R US to order our crib and dresser, and I can't wait to get them! Michael's Mom bought us the crib, and my Mom bought us the dresser. It means so much that our parents are being so much help to us! We are very blessed to have all of them! Gage is going to be so lucky to have such a huge family to love him! I will post pics as soon as we get everything put together...I can't wait!!

Last night we went to our annual Halloween Party that some friends of ours gets together, and it seemed to be bigger than ever. It is always a lot of fun to see all the costumes people put together, and sometimes I am in shock that they would actually wear them in public! I don't have many pictures of the costumes, but I did get a few of the family!

My Mom and I at the party!

Michael and belly is getting bigger by the minute!

This is Michael and I with my Stepbrother Steven, and his girlfriend Sissy! The guys NEVER keep their eyes open for pictures...UGH!!

I forgot to post a 19 week picture (I forgot to take one), but I will try to remember to take one this week and post it at some point. For now, maybe the Halloween pics will work! Talk to you soon!

We are at the same point in pregnancy and I feel like I get bigger every day, too! I am glad you enjoyed registering - it stressed me out. We are starting to focus on the room now which is good since we just realized a baby is going to be born in four months! I love keeping up with how your pregnancy is going.

Thank you! He is such a blessing in our far as things you need and don't need...personally I took our bottle warmer back as well as the wipe warmer. If we need the bottle warmed, we stick it under the faucet for 30 seconds or so. Good things to have: Boppy Pillow, SWADDLE BLANKETS, sterilizer, humidifier...I'll have to keep you up to date with these things as we go! And keep EVERY gift receipt from your showers!

I would definetly get a boppy pillow, swaddle blanket from Babies R Us not Target, bumbo chair, bouncy seat, swing, and I use my snugli carrier that I wear all the time. The TV monitor messed our real tv and phone up, it made it go fuzzy. I also really like the Dr. Brown bottles, they tend to really help with the gas for my girls.
