22 week update!

(Weeks 20-21)
Seeing as how i've had so many complications this pregnancy, I was REALLY excited when I made it to the half way mark. I am now 22 wks and 5 days pregnant and everything seems to be going fairly well! Our little boy has been kicking me and moving around like crazy and i've loved every minute of it. My morning sickness has finally subsided; hallelujah, and I'm at the point in the pregnancy where I feeling pretty comfortable. I was also able to go in for my 22 week mid pregnancy ultrasound. My goodness, our baby BOY is absolutely adorable. The nurse couldn't help but laugh because he WOULD NOT stay still. He was jumping around, kicking, punching, doing flips, waving HI to mom and dad, everything you could possibly imagine. 
 (22 weeks 4 day ultrasound)
It was so weird seeing him kick on screen and feeling it at the same time. Needless to say though, it was REALLY hard trying to get a good profile picture of him. He was always curled up in a ball doing flips. Hah so the one we did get is of his head against his chest about to show off his acrobatics and do yet another flip in mommies tummy. It looks like we'll just have to wait till June to see how cute his profile REALLY is! ;) I am so grateful that he appears to be healthy and doing well, he even measured at 23 weeks 1 day. I love him more and more every day and can't help but fall in love with him. OH and yes, we checked and he is STILL a baby BOY!!
Last month I was able to fly to Utah for my best friend Danielle's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and she looked gorgeous. Danielle and Richie are such an adorable couple and having known Richie before he dated Danielle, I can honestly say that they are the perfect match! Congratulations you two, I love ya both!  Here's some pictures some of us girls took at the wedding, lol it was a good time.
While I was there I also got to spend a lot of time with my sisters and nephews. We went to sushi and dessert one night and it was awesome to just talk to them and laugh about stupid stuff we used to do. I am very lucky to have such amazing and supportive sisters, I love them so much! I also have the best nephews in the entire world! I took Pierson and Nathan to get Red Mango with me, and then spoiled them afterwords and got them toys. One day I took Pierson with me to run errands and ended up taking him to Toys R US and got him and Nathan new Spider Man and Iron Man toys. They literally played with them all day, every day, for that entire week! haha
 Now I am back in good ol' Minnesota; and even though it is FREEZING cold here, I am so glad to be home with my husband and puppy. Skyler picked me up from the airport with flowers, and had Rookie waiting for me in the truck. Once we got home I walked into our bedroom to find a brand new bedroom set all set up. I about died, it is absolutely GORGEOUS! I don't have a good picture of it, the only one I have is of just the bed from the furniture place we bought it. Here it is anyways...
He also got me a brand new amazing King size mattress, I sleep so much better now and I honestly don't know how he even expects me to NOT take naps, when our super comfy bed is calling my name! HAH Also, I finally picked out a bedroom set and bedding for our baby boy. I'm so picky when it comes to shopping for him, so it was a huge shock that I even found something worthy of his bedroom. lol I am OBSESSED with this crib and bedding!
It's also a pretty penny, so we are having an Amish furniture business replicate it for us. I am accenting it with some mustard yellow, brown, and cream picture frames and sanding the edges. Also, my BEST FRIEND Whitney is a pro at decorating and she is coming to MN before the baby get here to help me decorate it. I can't wait to start painting his room with Skyler! 
 Last but not least, MN may be cold but we STILL know how to have fun! Dave & Busters anyone? I love office dinner incentive nights!! :)
Looks whos got a baby bump?! Haha I love my sister in laws!
Well, I've got a lot to do before this baby gets here, so stay tuned for some more belly pics and lots of baby room decorating updates soon. ;)
