Mommies to be check in

Andrea - Penelope is beautiful, the pictures are so adorable.

 

Danielle - I know I didn't loan them out but we just moved over the summer and while the house was on the market we had stuff stored at my parents and his parents and then we got a storage unit that is packed floor to ceiling, front to back. I had left what I thought was all the clothes at the front of the storage unit but the 0-12 stuff isn't there. Its too cold to go unpacking and repacking the whole storage unit and with stuff still at the parents houses, it could be anywhere, so I guess Shayne will be getting all new stuff : )

 

I am not brave enough to take bare belly pics because I got terrible stretch marks with my first pregnancy, so here is a covered bump pic, this was last week, 34 weeks along:

Our nursery is green, I haven't taken any recent pics with the furniture in yet, but you can see the wall color in this one:

That's our new bassinet that my mom got, it has the music and vibration and it rocks or can be locked to not rock, I love it.

 

And this is our bedding:

(not the dark crib though, ours is natural wood color) I had looked at the same bedding as you Danielle, but my mother-in-law has called my older son "Turtle" as a nickname since birth so I didn't think I should do turtles for Shayne. I went with this one to add some darker colors since the room itself is so light. My husband is going to do a mural on the wall with a tree that we are going to make a family tree and have some monkeys hanging in it.

 

So, this past weekend I took my 4 year old to a sibiling preparation class and it was so cute. They taught them what life will be like when the new baby comes home, what toys would be good for the baby and what toys they shouldn't share just yet as well as all about not sharing food with the baby. They also learned how to hold the baby and change a diaper using an anotomically correct doll, it even had the little piece of cord still on the belly button and they taught the kids that the babies belly button would be purple when he came home and then fall off. : ) It was really cute and my son was so excited. Last night I was in bed and very uncomfortable and my son came up and started rubbing my belly and said "Don't worry Mommy, baby Shayne will come out on my birthday in a few days (more like weeks) and then you will feel all better" It was so sweet.

So much to catch up on this thread!!

 

Danielle, Margie, and Tami- Your bumps are adorable; I love seeing bumps. We need more pics of those around here ladies!

 

Tami- congrats on a girl, you must be so excited! I didn't even know you were pregnant!! I really need to catch up!

 

Margie- your 4 yr old is so cute! I have never even of a class like that around here. Your son is going to be a great big brother!

 

As for me, matt just started eating rice cereal last week and had his first fruit yesterday. He loves solids and I had no issues with him eating everything. The formula, on the other hand, is still kind of a struggle. He never wants to finish his bottles, but the doc said it's pretty normal for him to lose interest. He's also starting to want to sit on his own, so hopefully any day now he will be able to!! Here are some recent pics of him:

Just wanted to stop by and say hello! My little guy is officially 1 month old today - which is crazy! His name is Finneas (Finn) Eric, and while the past month has been a huge adjustment, we are totally in love with him and enjoying parenthood!

 

Here's some pics:

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
