Baby is growing! 22 weeks, today!

Everything I read says I will probably be starting to get tired of being pregnant at this point, but right now I am loving it!

Baby is 22 weeks a long today, and is the length of a squash!

I had a rough first 17 weeks of my pregnancy, and now I feel tons better.  I am sure though, that as the baby gets bigger, I will start being more uncomfortable.  

Baby H weighs in at a whole pound now, its eyelids, lips, and eyebrows are formed, and he or she is going to be putting on some major weight in the next few months!

I will be posting more links to giveaways soon, That Crazy Lewis House, Family and Life in Las Vegas, and Does Mommy Love It have some great ones up! Now I just have to find time to link them!

Have a blessed week!

Wordless Wednesday

Blogger is NOT letting me upload a picture tonight, so this wordless worded Wednesday is as follows!

I spent all day in a tax seminar (I know, yawn) but actually this was exceptionally interesting!  Most the time. I will admit, it was hard to stay awake after a rather large lunch, although a little baby was very squirmy today which helped with my alertness.

I learned a lot today, about the health care bill, and about all the media reports that are incredibly false.  I just wanted to take a moment today to tell you all that in my opinion, the media is not a good source of information.  If you hear about something that seems completely shocking, chances are that it isn't true.  If you think that a tax issue is going to affect you negatively because you got an email claiming that the sale of your home is going to be taxed, consult your tax professional BEFORE you get upset about it! (this is generally untrue, unless your gain is over a threshold)

Yes there is good and bad to this health care bill, and some of it seems downright impossible to implement.  I can't say that I agree with the bill in it's entirety, some of it is completely ridiculous.  However, I get really sick and tired of the media and politicians playing America for a bunch of idiots.  So, here is my two cents! - Be diligent.  Don't jump on the bandwagon.  Do your fact checking.  Form an opinion and be an informed voter - you owe it to your country :)

NotyBaby Giveaway!

I am doing this post to earn some extra entries into a giveaway for a NotyBaby giftcard.  Let me start by saying that these products are absolutely adorable!

I love the cotton minky blankets, and am convinced I need one for Baby H :)  However, they are a little pricey for a blanket that is going to get slobbered on.  The good news - the reviews I have read say these blankets are worth every penny!  I think Baby H deserves a luxurious blanket that is oh-so-soft with an adorable modern print :)

You can enter this giveaway too at Familylicious Reviews

What a Weekend :)

Well Baby H isn't too keen on showing off the goods, so, we STILL do not know if its a boy or a girl.  I would really like to be calling it "he" or "she" instead of it!

The ultra sound went very well though, Baby is comfy in there, all curled up.  Placenta, cord, and fluid all looked good :)

So at week 21, baby is the size of a carrot!
My little carrot baby sure is cute already, all cuddly and sleepy in there:)

I want to start getting ready for Baby H as much as possible, so I put together its bathtime bag

This is my Thirty One bag I bought from a coworker who is a consultant. The washcloths, towels, and lotions all fit perfectly :)

And here is the belly at 21 weeks 

Can't wait to meet the little girl, or boy!

Get out and... VOTE!

I almost wasn't going to vote this year, I moved and wasn't sure of my polling place.  Upon receiving this news, my boss was dismayed and looked it up for me :) So I will be serving my civic duty (which I knew all along was the right thing to do)

I know it can be inconvenient, but remember in many countries people are denied the right to vote, so exercise your American freedoms, they are important and should be appreciated! :D

Happy Tuesday!
