Week 16

Week 16 update:  my pants don't fit! :)  I've started getting fat... or, as Dan so nicely points out, the baby is growing!  I guess this is a good thing.  I'm definitely starting to feel better - still tired, but mornings are much more pleasant these days.  Next appointment is July 5th - for the anatomy ultrasound.  I'm actually starting to get excited.

In other baby news, after some prodding from our parents, we have registered.  Registering for baby stuff is a lot more stressful than I had thought it would be.  Most of the problem is that we don't know what we will need/use.  Thanks to a few friends on Facebook (thanks, Katy & Meg!), and the Baby Bargains book, I think we have it figured out.  At least for the moment. :)  In case you care, we're registered at Amazon.com,  Baby's R Us and Walmart.  AND we ordered nursery furniture!  You'll have to wait 6-8 weeks to see what it looks like, though.

What else is happening?  Well, we went to our first Astros game (with the Youth Group).  It was a lot of fun, and we stayed for the fireworks afterword, which were awesome!  Way better than a lot of small town firework shows I have seen on the 4th of July.

AND Dan pointed out my first gray hair.  AHH!  I wasn't too pleased about that one.

And what's a post without a puppy picture?
