All Baby preparations now

Now, that we have returned from vacation, our last vacation as just Matthew and I we are all baby preparation. It seems as we are getting closer and closer to our due date, more of our conversations are about baby and preparations for baby. Today, we registered at Walmart and next week we are going to register at Babies R Us. Matthew enjoyed scanning things and thought we should register for everything they had :-)

We have been on the search for the perfect crib and will hopefully decide and order by next week. We also got paint samples and are narrowing our search on bedding. We bought a travel system stroller and car seat combo, that we got an amazing deal on.

Matthew can now feel our little one kick and move and can not believe how active she is. He will now continually ask if she is moving and will want to feel her :-)

As we are getting the nursery together we also have been working on several odd jobs on the house as well. Lots of painting projects and trimming out of things. Hoping to get as much done as possible. I have the feeling we will not have this much time after she arrives. Matthew's favorite phrase to say when we are at a restaurant with children sitting near by is, "We better enjoy the peace and quiet now."
Fireplace Matthew is working on right now

Went to the doctor this week and he said everything looks great. I also had my glucose test this week and will get the results next week sometime. No one told me I had to drink 12 ounces in 5 mins. Goodness, I was not sure if I could do it but I was successful!! The doctor asked what kind of childbirth I wanted, I told him I would attempt all natural and he then asked if I knew what that ment. I smiled and said yes. I said I am not opposed to an epidural but I do not want it if I didn't need it. He said most women are one way or the other thought it was an interesting take. Now only 2 more weeks till my next appointment. I feel like I see my doctor more than anyone else.
