First Baby Purchase & 12Wk Baby Bump

I took these pictures a few weeks ago and am finally motivated to update the blog.

We bought our first major baby items a few weeks ago: the all important stroller and car seat. We bought them online through Amazon and I love them! It was so tough to find something that was "gender neutral", as we wanted to use the items again for our next kid. Or two. We received them two days after we ordered them, and put them together the night they came. I just wanted to pull them out of the box, but Jared went one step further and put them together that night. Apparently he's decided I'm in a delicate mental state and he needs to walk on egg shells around me. I told him he needs to get over it and treat me normal. After all.. I only want to pull the pregnancy card when I actually need it!

Anyway, I'm off topic as usual. Here is our stroller/car seat combo:

I also took a 12Wk baby bump photo that same night:

Not the best picture of me, but what can ya' do? I don't think any picture from here on out is going to be spectacular. But I'm sure my posterity will appreciate it. Right? I feel like my baby belly grew pretty soon. In all the things I've read, I should start showing until four of five months. Nope, I was in maternity pants at 12Wks. Go figure.

I'm 15Wks today, so I'll take another pic at 16 weeks. We had a doctor's appt last week, and I tried to get the doctor to find out what the sex was, but he said it was too early. Ack. So, June 25th is the big day! I can't wait for that appt cause then I can start shopping! And so can the grandma's.... ;-)

Uhh.. that's about all that's going on. It got really hot here really fast, and I'm super tempted to go swim in our complex's pool. Sounds like a great saturday activity!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Woo-hoo! Shopping for baby is so much fun! I was 8 months prego when we bought our crib and dresser. David & a friend loaded it and brought it home to me one night. I was too excited to wait for the basketball game to be over, so I put it together myself! Can't wait for you to find out the gender so more shopping can continue!

Yeah we can't wait to hear if baby Pete is a boy or girl. My guess is a girl!

Love the stroller! Looks like a great one. I love the picture of you. You'll love them in the future too. I promise. You can't get enough pictures. With your next one you'll want to compair what you look like at 12 weeks with this 12 week picture. I'm so excited for the 25th!;)
