We picked up the crib this past weekend! As soon as we got home we started working on it and putting it together since I'm so impatient. Luckily it took less than 30 minutes. I was expecting that there would be some scratches on it from shipping but it's thankfully in perfect condition (for now!) Now it's time to decorate! I'm going to make a canopy for over her bed to add some color and hopefully I'll be able to add a light fixture to go underneath it to give it a more custom look. We're going to wait to buy the rest of the furniture until the Antique fair comes through town in a few weeks to see if we can find anything. I still have to add some more color to her rocking chair since it's a little dull now, but hopefully everything will come together in the end. Lots of work to do and only 13 weeks to do it in!

Just a little note to say that Dan felt the baby this morning! I don't think that I've ever seen such a face on him before! She's usually really active in the morning and today it seems like she's exercising in there. I'm glad that he was finally able to feel her because I could tell that he was a little disappointed up until this point.

I had our 25 week appointment yesterday and everything seems to be going well. Other than the lack of sleep, everything has been wonderful! My blood pressure was high again at the appointment, partly due to my being nervous about the glucose test. I'm relieved to know that my blood pressure is always normal when I take it at home though. Dr. Molinari wants me to come back in 2 weeks for a sono just to make sure that the baby looks okay. She says that moms with high blood pressure tend to have smaller babies so she just wants to be sure. She said that there isn't a cause for real concern since she looked normal at our last sono and I'm measuring normally. I'm not worried either since I've ALWAYS had high blood pressure whenever I walk into any doctors office.......it's the fear of the needle! I felt Lillian kick on the outside of my stomach for the first time this past weekend and I've been able to feel her with my hand ever since. She's been really active, especially when I first wake up and right before I go to bed. Unfortunately, she stops kicking right when Dan comes over :o( So hopefully I'll have another picture to post in 2 weeks. Only 15 weeks to go!!!

We're off to Syracuse this weekend for Easter which I'm looking forward too since it's been awhile. Me, Betsy and Mary have a bridal shower to go to on Saturday and then hopefully me and Betsy can do something afterwards. My dad has been anxious to find out the baby's name which he'll finally find out when we come home.....it's just a matter of whether I want to wait until Saturday or right when we arrive! We also get to see my dad's new house which will be exciting and a little strange at the same time. It will be wierd not pulling into Laurelwood, but I think that it's a good change. Once the baby's room is cleaned after this weekend I'll post pics so I can start to show the progress of how it'll be decorated (I can't wait!)
