Let the Great Baby Shopping Spree Begin

First of all we normally would not have started shopping this early, but they were such amazing deals that we just didn't want to turn them down.

A few days ago Chris mentioned that one of his co-workers was selling quite a few baby items and he asked what I thought of the list. One of the items they were selling was a Jolly Jumper on a Stand and for only $20.00. We both thought this was a great deal and would be great to have so we didn't have to scratch our walls so we made the long trek out there to pick it up. Once we got there to take we saw the Jolly Jumper, which was in great condition, she also showed us some other items that she had. We took her up on the Fisher Price Ocean Wonders Bouncing Chair and the Fisher Price Ocean Wonders Cradle Swing. They were all such great deal and in such amazing condition, they look brand new and she even still had all of the instruction booklets to go with them.

We load the three items into the car and head home. Once we were in the door we couldn't wait to set them up (it was like kids at Christmas) so now we have all of these things sitting around our living room. The bunny (Scott) was fascinated by all of these new toys and Chris was telling me this morning that last night after I went to bed Scott jumped right into the bouncy chair, I wish I could have been there to see it.

Anyways, I have included some pictures of the items we bought (from a website because my camera is being repaired again).

We have a heart beat

Hello Everyone,

We will be using this site to keep all family members up-to-date on how we are doing and most importantly, how the baby is doing.

Yesterday, Chris and I had the opportunity to go for an early ultrasound. My biggest concern was being able to see the beautiful beating heart. Almost as soon as the sonographer touched the wand to my belly and asked "Can you see the heartbeat", of course she hadn't had a chance to see much at that point but quickly checked so that she could put my mind at ease. After she was done getting the pictures she needed and checking with the doctor she brought Chris in and showed us his/her tiny beating heart. It reminded me of a tiny strobe light. Apparently the baby was moving around a lot when she was taking her first set of pictures but when she was showing us it looked like he/she was "lounging" around. Made Chris and I laugh.

I have included a picture so that you can all take a look.
