belly and bedding

We are moving right along with preparing for Caleb's arrival. We have cleaned out what used to be Michael's office completely, bought a crib and bought the bedding. Day by day it is becoming more and more real that we are having a baby in about 15 weeks. I can't believe it!!!!! Here are some pics of the bedding and Caleb's growing wardrobe and closet. :)

His quilt - can you see how well we matched the walls!!! :)

The bumpers, bed skirt and sheets!

The precious diaper stacker!!

This is the fan pull in the nursery - we didn't buy it. It was already there when we moved in - it was a sign!!!!

Moving right along with the nursery is my belly. For the longest time I didn't have one, but boy do I now!!! I remember earlier in the pregnancy I would ask Michael everyday "Do I look fat or pregnant?" and being the wonderful husband he is, he would tell me I looked beautiful and pregnant. No, there is no mistaken that there is a little person in there!!! Here are some pics!

20 weeks...

23 weeks...really grown a lot in 3 weeks...

Other than the baby, not too much has been going on. We went to the Braves game with my sister and her husband back in May (I know, I'm late with the pics). We had AWESOME seats - right behind the Braves dugout. We even had passes to the 755 Club! We had a great time, even though it felt like 120 degrees!

Michael and me...

Lisi and Russ

Michael not wanting his picture taken anymore...

Well, thats about all going on with the Anderson's right now. Tomorrow we jet off to Hawaii for 8 days. We are so excited and will post pictures of our "babymoon" when we get back!

moving forward...

It is hard to believe that we found out almost 24 weeks ago that we were going to be parents. It seems just like yesterday. Wow...

I feel Caleb kick everyday, and it brings a smile to my face every time. I absolutely LOVE feeling his "love notes." It has been so cool to have Michael be able to feel Caleb kick or punch, too. The past 2 nights Michael has put his hand on my stomach, said hello to Caleb and Caleb has responded; one night it was immediate!!! It was so cool!!! My mom keeps talking to Caleb trying to get him to kick for her, and he won't. I can't wait for everyone to be able to feel what I have been feeling for a month or so. :) Caleb has "active" and "sleepy" times. It is so cool to "know" my baby before he even arrives. :) I can't wait to meet him!!!

We are getting ready for our HUGE vacation. On June 28th we are leaving for Hawaii with the Anderson's and many of Michael's cousins and aunts and uncles. We will be there for 8 days. We are so so so so so excited!!! I have wanted to go to Hawaii my whole life and now we are finally able to go. I can't wait to see paradise!
