I've picked a bedding for both a boy and a girl. The place is Polka Tot Designs
where I can customize bedding for a boy and for a girl. Someone from my doctor's office can call them and they will design the one that corresponds to Baby's gender.
If you want to get an idea of what I've chosen- these are the fabrics:GIRL
(It's easier if you go to this
and put in the fabrics where I say)Bart Spring
dust ruffle and cording- where the other strip is and the plain pink cordingJust Us Kids
- one side of bumper pad (where the dots are)Dotz Watermelon
- other side of bumper pad (where the stripes are on the bumper pad, next to the solid middle)Minky Strawberry
- sheet and where monogram will go (not 100% sure if this is the right minky
color. I'll ask when I call.)Curly Q Strawberry
- maybe blanket, at foot and head of bumper pad (this is another one that I'll have to ask about when I call) (where the paisley is)Ok
, got all that?BOY
It's almost the exact Christopher
except instead of the green and white dots, I'll do minky dots lime
. Unless she can't monogram that. Then it'll be just a solid fabric in that same color.
I know that you'll be asking what names we've chosen now that we are ordering bedding with monogramming. We HAVE chosen two names, one for each sex, but will not be sharing* that info until Baby is here. Everything will be a surprise, I guess. I'm so excited to see if Baby is a boy or a girl. Now, we can use one name one day and switch it up.
Names are hard! And so is bedding!
Hard........ but fun!!
*I wrote this for my pregnancy blog and wanted ya'll
to see the bedding if you wanted. I still won't be announcing Baby's name here on this blog but, not because I don't want YOU
to know, of course. When the time comes, you can send me an email and I'll let you know. Baby will go by a nickname here (Baby? Cookie?).xo
That is not what I look like. My belly is big like that but, my legs don't look like that. AT ALL.
I am going to get batteries for my camera so I can take a 25 week picture. Don't expect shining beauty.
P.S.- How do you post pictures side-by-side? I wanted to put my belly pictures next to each other somewhere but I have no idea how. Any help is appreciated.
Will I Be Saying "It's A Boy" and Not Mean To...
I've been in love with Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags. One of the main reasons that I love this one over all the others is I can wear it two ways. It's a tote and can be worn as a backpack. I love that. I saw that Rue La La was going to have them on sale this Friday at 10 am and I knew that was my time to buy. (Rue La La is a website that hosts different sales for different brands everyday) Mom and I (Blue had a mandatory meeting. The first appointment he missed) went to see the perinatologist at 8 am Friday morning and were back at around 9:45. She had a quick appointment so she dropped me at Blue's office to use the computer. I was explaining to his secretary what I needed to do and why and she was all "Umm, Whatever!" She's a little older, not married, no kids. Anyway, I got on and there were a few of the kind that I wanted but not a lot of colors to choose from. There were two brown ones with pink. There was a brown one with light blue plaid and there was this one: I like this one a lot. I've seen it before. So, I got this one. I'm just worried a little that because of the blue it says "This is a diaper bag for a BOY baby." Does it? I don't want it to say that, especially if Baby is a GIRL baby. What do you think, honestly? I couldn't NOT buy one because the savings were something like 47% (Blue figured it out). In other news, we saw Baby! All the necessary parts seem to be there. The tech lady even said that she briefly saw the sex organs but then Baby closed her/his thighs up and sat on her/his feet. The baby's head was down low again but we got some profile shots. We also got a weight- 1 lb 5 oz. When the doctor came in and took a look, s/he picked up her face for him. We saw a few 3D shots of the face right on and I think s/he looks like Little Brother!! Of course, there is no fat on Baby so those pictures don't translate well. Baby just looks like an alien skeleton- but a gorgeous one!!

(Baby always has that hand over/near part of her/his face)
profile into chest
Doesn't it look like a big foot?
We went to a wedding last night and it was so nice. I did not get any pictures though. We are going to a stock-the-bar party for Little Brother and Gus in a little while and I'll try to remember to take pictures. Have a good weekend.
