My latest and greatest...

I saw the little kit at Scrap N Fanatics and HAD to get it!! I assembled the whole thing myself and this is the finished product! Greg even commented on it, which is rare!!

Here's a picture of our Dylan. We purchased him while we were dating and he is our baby! He got a haircut last Saturday. Over the winter, his hair gets terrible. He looks like he gains 20 lbs. because of his massive fur coat. When he gets a cut, he seems more happy and free!! Anyways, he stayed over with us that night. He likes to lay on the futon while I blog spy. I turned around and snapped this pic then turned back around. About 5 minutes later I heard some scratching and ruffling. I turned around to find that he had "nested" all of the blanket(even off the back of the futon) to make himself a "nest"! He is the cutest dog ever!!!

16 Weeks

This is what I found @ and thought I'd share my wonderful pregnancy with you!!

"How your baby's growing:

Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.

See what your baby looks like this week. (Or see what fraternal twins look like in the womb this week.)

Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby's development.

How your life's changing:

The top of your uterus is about halfway between your pubic bone and your navel, and the round ligaments that support it are thickening and stretching as it grows. You're probably feeling a whole lot better as you settle into pregnancy, too. Less nausea, fewer mood swings, and "glowing" skin contribute to an overall sense of well-being.

Soon you'll experience one of the most wonderful moments of pregnancy — feeling your baby move. While some women notice "quickening" as early as 16 weeks, many don't feel their baby move until about 18 weeks or more. (And if this is your first baby, don't be too impatient — you may not be aware of your baby's movements until 20 weeks or so.) The earliest movements may feel like little flutters, gas bubbles, or even like popcorn popping. Over the following weeks they'll grow stronger and you'll be able to feel them much more frequently."

Here it is...

From the picture you probably can't tell what they are, but they are BURP CLOTHES~
I used baby diapers that you would purchase from Walmart and a cute printed fabric from Joanne's. You can use ribbon but I opted not to because they are for a baby boy.
Here is the finished product. Here's the website with complete instructions!

Where's Spring... and Greg?

Greg left @6am this morning to catch his flight to Minnesota! Greg's work is sending him and one other salesman to a window conference. They will be training and learning about these windows while a couple of the others that he went with get SPOILED!! I miss him like crazy already! If you know Greg and me, we do just about EVERYTHING together! I think the longest that we've been apart is like 3 days, 2 nights and that was pretty tough because we were newly married. He will be gone until late late Wednesday. So, while he's enjoying a little bit of sun(he said it was sunny today), we are gettin' hammered by a snow storm...GGRRR! Don't get me wrong, we NEED the moisture, but I am getting cabin fever REAL BAD!!!!! I need some rays for tan-turned white skin!
