Hump Day

Happy Hump Day everyone! Well I guess its almost over, which is wonderful because we're over half way to the weekend! Weather forcasts say we're supposed to see 80 degree's this Saturday, we'll see if it truly happens.

Today was a pretty busy day. I worked last night so obviously I came home and crashed. I had an ultrasound appointment at 1:30 so I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed to be there and it was amazing! Every time I've seen this little bean its changed so much. Today it actually looked like a little person, head, body, arms, legs...and it was moving all over the place! I've read that they can move around already but it was crazy to see it firsthand. The ultrasound tech was trying to measure it and it was waving and kicking and turning its entire body. I was blown away. I can't believe this is happening inside me. Weird.

my munchkin waving hello (apparently it's left handed)

I spent a lazy afternoon lounging with the puppies. They are always pretty clingy when I've worked a few days in a row...and as for the lounging, that really means I passed out drooling on the couch. Apparently its allowed now that I'm pregnant, at least that's what I've Mr. Football.

After I emerged from my laziness Mr. Football and I went and ran some errands. We decided that every week we're going to buy a book for the baby. We'll take turns picking it out. So our first book is...
Mr. Football suggested this one and I love it. It was one of my favorites growing up so it was definitely a must have. I guess that means its my turn next week...any suggestions?

Tonight we went to a fundraising dinner for Bryson at a local restaurant. A portion of the proceeds of the night will go to the family. The food was yummy, especially their famous cookies and hopefully The P family will get a nice check out of it. Bryson is doing better, this round of chemo was pretty rough on him but he's starting to come around. He can't go out in public so we stopped over to see him. He was wearing only a diaper since he had just thrown up on his clothes and was happy as a clam. (I think he just throws up because he doesn't want to wear clothes...) It was good to see him happy again.

And finally on a serious note, I got a few messages that a co-worker of mine collapsed on her way into work tonight. They think that she had a heart attack and isn't doing very well. We are all shocked and scared. Please think of her and her family during this horrible time.

I ALWAYS bring books as baby shower gifts. I think it's great to start a kid on a good library ASAP! :-) Two of my favorites are "Velveteen Rabbit" and "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs".

I think buying books each week is a great idea. Without trying to hard here's a few of my favorites when I was younger:

Any of the Francis books
"The High Rise Glorious Skittle Skat Roarious Sky Pie Angel Food Cake"
"Blueberries for Sal"
"Miss Rumphius"
"The Little House"

And of course there's at least two sequels to "If you give a mouse a cookie"

your little munchkin is so adorable already!

i just saw this book at target called "you can be anything" (i think) and it was a snoopy book. i loved it and thought about buying it even though i am a ways off from kids. haha

i'll keep your coworker in my thoughts... how old is she?

Erica said...

I LOVE your book idea! How awesome. I once went to a book baby shower that was co-ed. Each person was supposed to bring their favorite kid book. It was awesome. I'm so glad that you're encouraging reading. I suggest you invest in the collection of Sandra Boynton books. They are great for toddlers.

Sad about your co-worker. I hope she's ok...we have one out with some serious pneumonia right sucks!

Mary Teresa said...

The book idea is awesome. Maybe I can raise a bilingual German child ;) What a nice little ultrasound. The first couple are so exciting!

Hope all is well and that the pups enjoy there extra "I'm pregnant and therefore allowed to sleep 18 hours a day" cuddle time.

How did I not know you were pregnant? I totally missed that post! How exciting!!! Good thing you got a new, reliable vehicle! (you did get a new one, didn't you? Did I miss THAT too?)
I love the Mouse/Moose/Pig books, and so do my kids. Check out ANYTHING by Mo Williams for a good laugh too.

Suzy said...

I love the book idea. What an adorable family.

littlesack said...

i love the idea of buying a book each week! I always give a book as a shower gift---its usually a nice book that the family can keep for a while. I suggest: The polar express. (i know its a little older than a baby book, but i loved reading it every xmas and knowing that id been read it every year since birth).

love give a mouse a cookie!
