I'm Alive

I'm here.
I'm alive.
As you may have noticed, I have not been blogging.

I had the flu for about 2 weeks, which completely knocked me on my butt. I still have some leftover nasal congestion/drainage, but doing MUCH better now!!! Thankfully, my husband did not get sick.

We had our 2nd ultrasound.

Our little girl is doing great. She is developing just as she should. She weighs about 1 lb. 11 oz. right now. It was so amazing to see her again. I'm so thankful we were able to have 2 ultrasounds! (The picture I uploaded is the 4-D ultrasound.)

We've started to register. Talk about overwhelming. I cannot believe all the things the stores sell for babies. It is impossible to know what you will/will not need. I guess it will be trial and error. :)

Keith and I went on one of our first real "date nights" since I've been pregnant this past weekend. (I know, I know.. that is so sad and totally my fault). We went to dinner and a movie. Saw Juno. We both loved this movie. It was well written and had great actors. I was really pulling for it with the Oscars, but no such luck.

So, that's my life right now. I hope to get back into the blogging mode, but I keep saying that in every sporadic post......

Parental Advice

We are going to have to start thinking about registering soon (for the baby shower).
This task seems a little overwhelming to me. There are SO many products out for babies- which ones are actually necessary and of those that you will need, how do you pick the brand and type..... I walked down the diaper aisle the other day and WOW! Talk about some choices!

So, I am asking for your help. What items/products could you not live without for your babies? Which ones did you never use? Do you have favorite brands?

I've been told by numerous people that Dr. Browns bottles are the way to go, so that is on the list..... but what else?

Thanks in advance for your comments!!! :)
