Possible Decision on Baby Bedding

So for weeks and weeks I was pretty sure I wanted to go with the Serena and Lily "Kate" bedding. Hubbs seemed to like it as well. Then out of nowhere, I decide to hop back on their site to see if there is anything that I like better. Low and behold, they have a new set called "Natasha" which I love and now I am confused. Hubbs doesn't like the peacocks so I guess that one is out of the question, but my oh my is it ever pretty!

With being 24 weeks today, I am getting pretty nervous about not having all things figured out yet. I need to get on the ordering and start buying everything we need, I have 4 months, give or take a week or so. Ahhhh!!

Anyways, here is the Serena and Lily "Kate" set I am so in love with.

24 Weeks and V-Day!!!

* How far along?: 24 weeks and celebrating V Day!!
* Total weight gain: At my doctor's appointment yesterday I was up 1.2 lbs from 4 weeks ago
* How big is baby?: 12 inches and 1 1/3 lbs, Woot!
* Sex: Baby Brianna
* Maternity clothes?: Yes, and I bought some more cute stuff on sale Boxing Day
* Stretch marks?: Fingers crossed I continue on the no stretch mark train
* Sleep?: A little better this week. I actually managed to sleep through the night twice this week, without waking up for a pee break...Yay me!
* Best moment this week? Reaching V-Day today and being told after my freak out the last couple days, the doctor telling me all is well with baby.
* Movement?: All the time and now I am also feeling stretching which caused the freak out mentioned above
* Food cravings?: Lemons, chinese food and sushi
* Labor signs?: None
* Belly button in or out?: Still stretching
* What I miss: Seeing as tomorrow is New Years, I miss champagne :(
* What I'm looking forward to: New Years Eve tomorrow night.

Wonderful Christmas!

This year we had a great Christmas that was just the 2 of us. We slept in, were lazy and just spent lots of time together on our days off.

I also got lots of great gifts from hubbs. He bought me a gift certificate for a pre-natal massage which I am so excited to go to. I've had a sore back for the last few weeks and that will be amazing to have someone rub me down and get rid of all the kinks! He also got me some bath bombs, shampoo and conditioner, body butter and some other nice things. I managed to get him everything he wanted which was easy, he isn't hard to shop for. My MIL sent me the remaining pieces to my Willow Tree Nativity Set which made me real happy.

Now about baby, we got some cute things for our little one for when she arrives. My mom sent her a quilt and knitted sweater with hat. So cute! She also told me that she will be sending a couple boxes of all my really nice baby clothing from when I was a newborn, I am very excited to get all of that.

I can't believe how fast time has gone by, we really need to get on ordering furniture and bedding and everything else! I will be 6 months on Thursday and am just amazed that in around 4 months there will be someone else joining our family!
