A HUGE Thank you, some furniture and jungle animals!!

First ~ a HUGE thank you to my friends and family in Maryland!! Charlie and I finally went online to spend all the Target gift cards from the shower. We get a 10% discount when we order online and Target was running free shipping through Saturday. So we figured it was now or never!! Because of your generosity, we were able to buy a rocker/glider chair with an ottoman for the nursery, our crib mattress and mattress pad, the changing pad, and the extra car seat base for Charlie's car. With the cash and checks we were also able to purchase our car seat and some really cute jungle pictures for the nursery! I'll post pictures when all of the Target items arrive, but I had to make sure I thanked everyone again! It is really exciting to see the nursery coming together.

And speaking of the nursery, we finally got the crib put together today. So the dresser and crib are all put together and we are waiting on the crib mattress for the finishing touch!

This is the dresser/hutch:

and this is the crib:

and these are the jungle animal prints that we got for the walls. I am absolutely in love with them!! I can't decide which one is my favorite!!!

Tomorrow (April 14th) is my 28 week appointment at the doctor's office. I have to take my sugar test to make sure I don't have gestational diabetes. I am convinced I will fail it ~ if for no other reason than I have nightmares of my popcorn being taken away from me for 10+ more weeks! I also promise to update the belly pictures tomorrow. My belly is really growing quickly and I am getting one of those turkey-timer belly buttons! Ugh!!!

That's all for now........all our love!
Charlie, Beth, and Baby!!
