Mom and I. We went back into the room did the blood pressure stuff and then Dr. Levine came in. I introduced him to my Mom and the first thing he said was "how about we go into the ultrasound room to check her out so your Mom can have a peak". I was so thrilled since women usually only have 3 u/s throughout the whole pregnancy and my Mom was able to see her on the screen dancing around. I could not believe that he offered this and wasn't expecting to see her for quite a while. It was so special to share this with my Mom.
And when I thought the day couldn't get any better......
One of the main reasons why we went to U Village was to look around at Pottery Barn kids and check out the fun decor stuff they have - mainly these great lavendar polka-dot basket covers. I didn't realize that they carried crib bedding in store so it was fun to look at the stuff that I have been obsessing over for the last month. I saw my bedding that I was planning on ordering online but not in my color so my Mom asked the very helpful saleswoman if they had my color in back. The saleswomen came out with my bumper, skirt, and 2 fitted sheets that matched. I know you must think that I am crazy for even thinking that this is a big deal but I have literally been obsessing over my bedding and when to order it so that fact that it gave me a chance to cross it off my list was way beyond me.
Seriously - just ask Troy, I have been insane for at least 3 weeks now, going on four. So to top everything off I got up to the register to pay for my purchases and the whole crib bedding set went on sale that very day!!!!! Are you freakin kidding me???!!!!!
Troy and I put it on the crib when I got home and it looks even better than I expected. Again call me crazy but I feel like the largest most absurd weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

I'm beginning to sound like a schitzo.

We've decided on lavendar, chocolate and cream or white as our colors and were going to put up this great damask wallpaper that I found but realized that it was going to limit us on the decor. For some reason I've been obsessed with damask and found a great picture of a nursery with damask curtains, so I think that's how I will incorporate the design element into the room. I'm going to ask my Mother-in-law to make them (although she doesn't know this yet) since I would be a mess trying to contruct curtains. I can't wait!!!
I'm really trying to get a good belly pic but the side view Troy took last night looked funny so here is a frontal shot.

Even though the meal was fantastic and my Mom and Troy were enjoying what I think is the best wine around (Molly Dooker The Scooter), the absolute hands down best part of the night was when we were in the kitchen preparing the meal and my baby started kicking quite a bit so I grabbed my Mom's hand and put it on my belly. The look on her face was truly priceless as I don't think she expected such a forceful kick.
Can you imagine the feeling you get as a Mom when feel your daughter's daughter kick in her belly.....it was a really great moment.

Michelle and I were chatting back and forth via email this afternoon talking about our Friday afternoons in college and how we remember them like they were yesterday; go to class (maybe), get coffee at Starbucks, go tanning at Body Magic, go to Moscow to buy a gross shirt from Macy's for some 'exchange' that night, eat dinner at DG's, then get ready with a house full of fun girls. It was so easy back then. You didn't have to work to keep in touch with people and as Michelle put it, all of your best friends were in a 4 block radius.
I am so greatful for my college experience and I have no doubt that college helped mold me into the woman I am today. I hope every WSU alum realizes how lucky we were to have lived in such a remote place like Pullman which forced us to be such a tight knit community.
If only I could go back in time for just a weekend for one last hoorah...wouldn't that be nice?

Saturday was pretty chill with it being quite rainy, we just stayed inside and dinked around the house. I took this chance to clean the house since it was in need of a deep cleaning and Troy decided to organize and clean my office which continues to drive me crazy - but I appreciate it. Later in the day when I was reading, the baby started moving quite a bit and you could actually see my belly moving along with it. I screamed bloody murder for Troy who was upstairs and he flew down and was able to feel her for the first time - it was pretty incredible. She has continued moving like this all weekend which makes me thing she has gone through a major growth spurt in the last few days since her movements are so obvious now. Not at all like the 'butterfly feeling' that most books talk about but more like kicking and rolling in my belly. What is really weird is when she positions herself right on my bladder and all of a sudden I feel so much pressure and my belly gets super tight and hard right where she is - it must be her butt or head.
Last but not least Sunday was Laurel's baby shower and it was so much fun to be with everyone, especially Laurel who looks like she is going to pop anyday now. She is due in 4 weeks and her Dr. already says she has a 6 lb. baby inside of her....oh geez. Here are some pics from yesterday...
