I'm a slacker... this is a long one.

I've been a slacker at posting blogs lately so this is going to be a long one!!

We are now 20 weeks along, we'll be 21 on Tuesday. I can't believe we're 1/2 way there!! Chad is just about finished with Brynn's room. We should be getting new carpet throughout the house soon so I'll post pictures of everything once it's in. Chad won't let me show anyone anything until then!! We're really excited about how it's turned out so far!!

I went and did some more Brynn shopping today, I bought a couple cute outfits for her. We came to the conclusion that she's probably not going to be wearing much of anything except for onezies for the first couple months since it's going to be so hot outside so I'm trying to be a planner and get her some 3-6 and 6-9 month stuff. She already has her first bikini, Chad actually found it!! She also has a matching hat for it!! This is so much fun!!

About a week and a half ago, Chad put together a kids mix of music for her. TJ and Jenn had this cool thing that they used that has two sets of headphones, a microphone and these little speaker things that you can hook up to your IPod that they let us borrow, so a couple nights ago, we strapped this thing on me and hooked it up to the IPod. Chad's mix contained anything from Disney soundtracks to classic nursery rhymes to Elmo rapping his ABC's (the rap was actually pretty cute!!). He also added a few songs that we like, ranging from Kelly Clarkson to Social Distortion (yeah, that one is all Chad...) to some kind of opera music that I don't know where he found. So far, she likes Kelly Clarkson. She was moving around quite a bit to that one.

It's so weird to feel her moving around. I've been feeling little flutters since I was about 11 weeks along but now they're getting a lot more noticeable and they're occuring a lot more often. It's creepy (don't get me wrong, creepy in a good way...) to know that I have a baby growing inside of me!!

Last weekend, I bought 3 more boxes of Popsicles from Wal-Mart. (I didn't want to deal with the snowbirds at Fry's...) They were WRONG again!! I learned my lesson. DO NOT buy popsicles from Wal-Mart when you are pregnant and craving them, you will be strongly disappointed.

Pregnancy head. This is VERY annoying. For those of you who are reading this and don't have kids yet, just a heads up, you will become VERY dingy while pregnant. I didn't realize that it was as bad as what it is. Oh, and it's contageous (sp?) too. Chad seems to get it everyonce in a while. Last week when I went to Wal-Mart for Popsicles, I also bought milk. Chad and I were out doing some running around on Thursday night and he was like "Babe, what did you leave in your car?! What is that smell?!" We stopped to get gas and searched the car. We couldn't find anything. I was really concerned because #1, it smelled like ass. #2, Chad seriously seemed like he was mad at me. He thought I ran over something and didn't tell him. I explained to him that there isn't any roadkill here, it's all in Ohio and I've never hit anything before!! About an hour later, we ended up at Michael's and I was like "I wonder if it's something that I left in the trunk?" Sure enough, we opened it up and Chad found a 1/2 gallon of milk that we left in the trunk (I say "we" because we BOTH unloaded the stuff that was in there. ;o) It was horrible. I sprayed an entire bottle of Apple Cinnamon Febreeze throughout the car and the trunk to try and cover up the smell until I could get to the carwash. Most of the smell is out of it now, thank goodness. Lessons learned: Pay attention while unloading groceries and don't EVER let Brynn bring milk in the car.
