It's official..... due June 15th (although all my children like to be fashionably late)

I have one of these lil' humans growing inside me!
Lilypie Pregnancy tickers
We are feeling so blessed!!

You are 12 weeks pregnant. (fetal age 10 weeks)
  • The fetus is now about 2.5 inches (6cm) length and weighs about 0.7 ounce (20 g).
  • The feet are almost half an inch (1cm) long.
  • The fetus starts moving spontaneously.
  • The face is beginning to look like a baby's face.
  • The pancreas is functioning and producing insulin.
  • Fingernails and toenails appear.
  • The baby can suck his thumb, and get hiccups.
12 weeks From this week you may well be able to hear the baby's heart beat through a doppler monitor on your tummy. You will notice that the rate is up to 160 a minute, double that of a normal adult.

Your baby now has a chin and a nose and a facial profile. Vocal chords are complete, and the baby can and does sometimes cry silently. The brain is fully formed, and the baby can also feel pain. The fetus may even suck his thumb.

The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve fibers. The hair is on the head and the fingers and toes have developed soft nails. The kidneys are developed and begin to secrete urine.

Christmas Shopping

With all my friends Facebook status saying : "Yay, done Christmas shopping", I'm feeling quite behind. 

Redneck:  I have no clue. He has a MacBook Pro, an iPad, and an iPhone 4. What else could a man want.  I could get him a briefcase for his business trips every couple months but I don't know.  What does he want?  Probably a .....

iMac 21.5-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

 But since I don't have $1,000 laying around... this will have to wait.  Maybe I'll get him some nice $20 Smartwool socks, LOL. 

Carter : He loves Buzz.  He wears his short sleeve pajama shirt almost every day. So I got him the long sleeve version.

And that's all so far.   He'll be getting a good Buzz with wings, a Woody, some tinker toys, and who knows what else.

August : He likes Woody (because his brother tells him to, so he does).  So I got him matching jammies.....

And he'll also be getting a good big Buzz, since they always fight over it, and probably a Woody doll and some Lincoln Logs.

Luella : Not a clue. She turns 1 on Dec 14th, I think she needs a dolly stroller but we really don't have room for it. 

I have no clue what to get her.  She'll definitely be getting a Jessie doll, since we have the cloth Woody and Buzz.

But other than that? oy!

Hope everyone is having a great time getting all their shopping done!
