Baby Shower #1

Chris & I traveled back to Durham a few weekend ago for my Fall Break.
It was so wonderful to see our Durham friends again!

My sweet Bible Study girls hosted our 1st baby shower for baby Tarr.
We had such a great time!!! Karen prepared yummy spinach artichoke dip, chocolate covered strawberries, hummus & veggies, and adorable cupcakes!
Our dear friends blessed us with so many wonderful gifts...
hats, bibs, 2 BumGenius cloth diapers (:-)), red baskets for baby Tarr's bookshelf, toys, pacifiers, dishwasher baskets, bottle brushes, burp cloths, some very adorable outfits, a changing pad, hooded towels & bathcloths, a bath robe, a bath thermometer, and Dr. Seuss books.

We feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends!!!

announcement cake

Again, better late than never!

Cheri was so kind to make the most precious cake for us to share baby Tarr's gender with Chris' family.

She went so far above & beyond what I asked for, & I could not have imagined a cuter cake!

Chris' dad cut the cake revealing the blue cake & our fun secret!

at last!

I know it's taken a few months to get these up, but here are a couple of our gender ultrasound pictures. They're scanned in & slightly crooked, but I couldn't resist posting them anyway.

No matter how many times I look at them, I just can't get enough of the little glimpses of our little man.

We're so looking forward to our 28-week ultrasound so we can get another chance to see the little guy! (just over 2 more weeks away!)

busy, busy boy

Our little one is definitely a busy, busy boy!

I have been able to feel him moving for several weeks now.
At first it was just little flutters (a friend described it to me like what it might feel like if you had swallowed a goldfish...pretty accurate, although I've never swallowed one!).
Now, I'm feeling much more distinct movements & at times I'm pretty sure he's kicking me.
I so love being able to feel him moving around!

At 23 weeks, our little guy measures almost 12 inches long & weighs closes to 1.5 pounds.

It's hard to believe that we're over 1/2 way there. I have a feeling the next 19 weeks are going to fly by!

The registries.

Alas, we have registered for baby gifts!

Saturday night we went to Babies R Us & had a blast selecting some sweet things for our little man.
After that 2 hour experience, Chris was pretty much over registering, so he left the Target registry up to me. I had to run to Target this morning so I registered while I was there.

We have decided to use cloth diapers (more on that later) so we also created an online registry/wish-list @ Diaperjunction.com. Should you wish to view our registry there, the password is 'diapers'.

We have some showers fast approaching...sooo exciting!!!
