20 down...

20 to go. the halfway point has come and gone and so far things have been going good. my appetite has returned with a vengeance. holy cow, i seriously didn't think i could eat so much. so long kids meals, hello super-sized ones!

the last few weeks i've had to make the switch to maternity wear, at least out in public. i don't mind sporting the half shirt at home. and yes, i've been sporting the dresses more often than not. i think i've worn them more the last few weeks than i have in a lifetime. when the pants don't fit...

luckily last weekend was a tax-free weekend here in nc. so aaron and i did some shopping. me more so than him. we did get a few outfits for baby westphal, but our main agenda was to get me something to wear. i'm now the proud new owner of two pair of maternity pants, a handful of shirts and some maternity dresses. luckily i was able to find some normal clothes that can double for maternity wear. like the dress i'm wearing in the pic.

the nursery is done, at least painted. i'll post pics tomorrow of the before and after pics. already loving the color and am thinking about the rest of the decor. the crib and changing table are still on order. expected delivery between august 14 - september 1. so for now it'll remain empty. i'll have to post some of the decor i'm considering and get peoples opinion. i'm finding i'm a bit girly in my thinking and it's really hard not to be so cutesy.

i did start my registries. greyson and i hit up "babies r us" and target last week. i'm having a hard time picking out things to put on it. if anyone has any suggestions, i'd love to hear them. yeah, the stroller i registered for turns on a dime... which makes aaron very happy. lol!

Yay! You look pregnant! As for registries...do not register for wipes warmer...waste of money! I never had one and my kids did just fine with room temp wipes. Heaven forbid! Do not register for too many baby clothes as you will likely receive too many at your showers! Have fun!

Pregnant Su-Pac is so cute!!!! I love it!!! Gowns, register for gowns. They are great for newborns at night. When you get up the feed and change you don't have to think about snaps you just pull them down. They make boys ones and both of our boys wore them til I couldn't stuff them in them anymore. Hope everything is going well. Take care and miss you guys!!

YOU ARE SOOOO CUTE!!! Big loves sent your way from the Caraways. Rub the belly for us a couple of times! As far as the registry goes, hated the diaper genie - both times we were given one - but some people really liked them. Loved our baby side-sleeper for the crib, jiggle-seat was a huge hit with both of our little ones, as well as a high chair that reclines and has multiple heights. Good luck! Miss you guys!

When I registered I used a parents check list provided by the store. i took my girl friend and helped her with hers going one by one on the same list and telling her what she "really" needed and what she didn't. I advice you take a seasoned Mom with you to help. I love your dresses and I am so happy for you, i can't wait!!!

Aunt Debbie suggests checking out hospital scrubs. The pants are light elastic with pull strings. In other words, expandable.
