Looking Back at this Week

This week has been busy for us, hence the lack of postings. Wednesday we had a doctor's appointment and all went well. We had another sonogram since at our last appointment the nurse wrote that she couldn't see the baby's face so we could get a free look at our baby at this visit. She is doing well just getting bigger! Her estimated weight was 1 pound, 2 ounces. Her foot was about 1.5 inches long. She is in the 98th percentile for weight and height. We are hoping that her growing slows down soon so that we don't have a 10 pound baby. Every time the doctor mentions that I just cringe! :) I tried to scan in an ultrasound picture so you could see her, but we can't get the printer to scan. Maybe another day.
This week Chris has been working like crazy to get some of the crib finished. For those of you that may not know, he is making the crib with the help of his dad. We found a pattern online and some really neat Oak to make it out of. We think it is going to look great when it is all done. Here are a few snapshots of Chris working out in the garage.



Today after church we went to The Peddler's Way in Washington to pick out some material to make the bedding for the baby's room. It took a while, but we finally found some that we absolutely loved! Here is a sneak peak.

I was thinking the same thing that Micah said....LOL! I take it that you are going girly since there is a lot of pink! :) Very cute! Did you pick a pattern yet? Why are there still no belly shots on this blog? That is the point! I know Chris knows how to use the camera too!

Abrah and Micah...

You guys are brats! Chris did like the material, but you are right; he probably didn't "absolutely love it..."
I will work on the belly shot business. I will shoot for one a week.

Well I love the material! It will be so cute. Mimi can't wait to sew some stuff in pink. I see you have green too. I did make a little pink thing today to get started. This baby is a lucky little girl to have such a talented Daddy. Better make it extra long. Love you
