Less than 100!

It's official!! We have less than 100 days til our due date! I really can't believe it. I feel like there is so much to do and get and I have no idea where to begin!

I had an early morning companion this morning...just a little taste of what is to come!!
Eric had a doctor's appointment this morning (he goes to the doctor his sister works at). Nicole usually takes Bryson with her to work for a few hours and then takes him to the sitter. She asked if I would watch him so she could get more work done and then Eric could take Bryson when he went to his appointment. Who wouldn't want to watch the cutest nephew in the world when they are up anyways!
I can't believe how big he is getting! He is Mr. Chubs now!! We do not see them enough and they just live 15 min away!!

Moving for Daddy

So Eric's coworker is having a baby and they are like a month behind us, Eric was telling me at dinner that Scott was asking him if Brooklynn is moving around like crazy, which she really isn't. But she started moving a lot after I got done eating and I finally got Eric to feel it!!!
It was a tiny little kick but he felt it!! I loved seeing his expression (you know the look when someone is like "OH!") and the huge grin on his face!
There is much more to come babe, I promise!!

25 weeks?!?!!?

So my Dad likes to use the countdown app on his iphone and he has one for Brooklynn's due date.
I was talking to him yesterday morning and he told me that we have 103 days and that on Wednesday we will be in the double digits! Holy cow!! So close to 99 days to go!
Where has the time gone?!?!?
I remember sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas telling Eric that as soon as January hit that time was just going to fly by. Well, it most certainly has!! It just keeps getting closer and closer.

Last weekend (as part of our Valentine's date) Eric went shopping with me so that I could get some more shirts and while we were at Burlington Coat Factory I gave him my big puppy dog eyes and asked if we could get something for Brooklynn.
Well, because he is so amazing and loves me so much he said that I could, on one condition....he had complete veto power and I was able to override his veto once. He is such a funny man!! The whole veto came in because he does not want everything to be PINK. In fact one of the first things he said after our ultrasound was that I was going to have to tell my friends that they can't buy a bunch of pink things. (Fortunately for him I am more of a purple person than a pink person).
Anyways....we settled on this adorable 4 piece set (even though it's pink!) because it was too cute to pass up!

Brooklynn hasn't really been moving any more than she has the past few weeks, but the other night as I was going to sleep I felt like she had some pretty big kicks that I could feel on my belly. So I've been trying to get Eric to feel her. Unfortunately she moves very sporadically and he hasn't been able to feel it yet. Maybe this week....

I finally got Eric to scan our ultrasound pictures!
(nothing like a hormonal pregnancy meltdown for motivation)

So here she is, our little Brooklynn Elizabeth....

Isn't this just the perfect "Cara" picture?! I love her cute little feet and I am so glad that technician got a picture of them!!

Where has the time gone?! We're already at 24 weeks...over halfway and I really can't believe it.

Love & Hate

I love

Cereal before bed!!

(Cap'n Crunch was on sale and since I am my father's daughter that is the cereal of choice for the next few weeks...or as long as my boxes last!)

I hate


Especially when they are in my kitchen! We have been invaded! I found them Saturday morning and thought that after a good cleaning they would go away. They've been sticking around though, even with all the sugar in the fridge! They are driving me crazy. The Clorox wipes are living on the counter top and I don't think my counter has ever been so clean with as many times as it has been wiped down in the last few days! I do think they are slowly dissipating, so hopefully by the end of the week they will be gone, hopefully!
We have never had a problem with ants before and think that maybe our new neighbor is attracting them and they are somehow wandering over to us from them. Not nice!
