Sugar and spice and everything nice

I know it has been awhile since I last posted but I have been out of town. Mitch decided to do some temporary work for APX at the beginning of the summer and so all last week he was in Alaska so I went down to stay at my parents house. He did make it home for our doctors appointment yesterday and then he left early this morning. I know all of you are dying to know what we found out at our appointment even though you have probably already guessed but IT'S A GIRL!! We are super excited, plus everything looked really normal considering the parents she is coming from. We did get a good laugh because you could see the ears and if any of you have seen Mitch's baby pictures he has huge dumbo ears (i'll have to post a picture later) and so that is one trait we are hoping does not get passed down but from what we could see it isn't looking good. I am so excited to finally be able to start shopping and now we can cut our name choices in half but I still don't think that is going to make the choice any easier. If anyone has any cute girls names feel free to share.

Who do you look like?

I saw this on the atwood blog and thought it looked fun so I tried it out. I had no idea that Mitch would be compared to Nick Lachey or I to Amanda Bynes but I guess with technology you can look like just about anyone.

Month Five

So today marks the beginning of the fifth month which also means only five more months to go. I can't believe how fast the time is going. In just three weeks we will be finding out what we are having (crazy) and we have finally come up with some girl names that we like so I will be happy with either a boy or a girl. As of now, I still haven't felt the baby move (as far as I know) which is somewhat disappointing but the doctor said that some people don't feel anything until the 20th week so I shouldn't worry yet. Speaking of the doctor, at my last visit I got some bad news. Mitch and I have different blood types, he has positive and I have negative, which means that our baby probably has positive (takes after the dad) and so if our blood (mine and the babies) were ever to mix then my body would start building anti-bodies that would fight off my baby. scary. Thank goodness there is now a shot they give around the 28th week that prevents this from happening but it was still a little disturbing. Other than that things are going great, my energy is back up as well as my appetite which means our little baby is just getting bigger and bigger.

Craft Ideas for Girls Camp

So last month I was called as the YW girls camp assistant director which I was and still am really excited about even though I will be hugely pregnant when we go but it will still be way fun. We had our first meeting this past week and quickly realized that none of us have ever done this before so we are extremely unorganized and unprepared but we will learn and it will get better. Needless to say, I sort of volunteered/was assigned the camp craft and I have been searching for ideas online, because no way can I just come up with something on my own. There are so many cute and fun ideas out there but these are my favorite ones. If you have any other suggestions feel free to let me know.

I love these mirrors, I was at IKEA last month and actually bought three of them but they have just been sitting around my house and now I think I am going to decorate them to go into the babies room once we find out what we are having.

Supposedly these are only 1.99 at Michaels and then you just have to decorate them.

These are called Simply Daisy's at Michaels and you decorate them and put a magnet on the back.

These look a little more complicated and maybe out of the price range but such a great idea.
