More Baby Stuff...

Katie and I went out to Grand Rapids today to some different baby stores and I brought my camera along in hopes of seeing the stroller and bedding set I want to get... and I did see them both so I took some pictures to show everyone!

This is me testing out the stroller we are going to get...
This is the car seat we are going to get. It matches the stroller. The colors and pattern are so cute!
Here is a close up of the patterns. The letters are the GRACO letters but I still like it!
Here is the bedding set we are going to get. Its called Turtle Bay.
Here is a matching rug.

This is what the crib sheet looks likeThis is the Mobile. It is so stinkin' cute. I love the little turtles hanging from it.
This is the diaper stacker.
These are some matching wall hangings. The stars a so much fun!

Here is a new toy I made. Its a turtle. I brought it over to Jens on her birthday and Cole played with it for a while. He loved it. The material is fuzzy and he really liked that.Happy Cole. I think he was laughing at Uncle David.
Here is Nyla. She is starting to take a couple of steps at a time. Its so cute to watch. She gets so excited and tries to go fast but ends up falling over!
Here is Nyla climbing on top of Jens new birthday present... Rachael Ray Cookware set... ORANGE! to match her kitchen.

on your mark... get!

Ok so I have been doing some sewing lately on my new sewing machine... well I got it for my birthday in December, but anyways, I found this really cute pattern online for a ball you can make for kids to play with and I really liked it so I printed off the pattern and got to work. It was actually quite easy to make, but it turned out way bigger than I thought it would. Its about the size of a basketball and I was picturing it to be about half that size. But anyways it turned out cute I think. I used left over material from a turtle that I had made... picture of that at the bottom. Let me know what you think of it in my comments section. Thanks!

My finished 'baby grab ball'
See how big it is compared to my hand holding it? But its still cute!

Here is the turtle I made, it is kind of a taggy turtle, I still need to add some eyes to it. It turned out pretty good considering I had no pattern and I had only seen a picture of something like it online!

These are some other things I've made so far... the turtle painting matches our bed set that we are going to get called turtle bay. The fleece tie blanket is so soft. I found the material a while ago and had to get it, the back is a green color and it is that material with the little bump dots on it... i dont know what its called. Then there is the taggy turtle.

ITS A ...

Baby! Haha no we didn't find out what we are having... didnt want to. Even if we would have we woundt have been able to find out because the baby kept moving around doing summersaults and kicking, and being sneaky and keeping its legs crossed. The Nurse kept calling it a little squirt because it was moving around so much. We actually got to see it do a summersault on the screen of the computer. It was pretty neat. Ok so here are the pictures...

The first one is a full body shot... the baby is kind of in a V shape position with the head on the upper left side and back and butt on the bottom.Then if you follow the back around you will see the legs going up towards the right side of the picture.

This is a full body profile... as you can see the baby is completly flipped around and the head is now on the right side of the picture. You can see the nose and mouth really good and the little belly and spine.
Here is the face shot of the baby...
you can kind of make out the eyes and nose and mouth if you look closely.

I am at 20 weeks 1 day today and am measuring 19weeks 6 days so im pretty close and on track. The heart beat ws 149 so just about the same as it was last week at the doctors office. The nurse said everything looked good!
