Music to our ears

>> Friday, December 12, 2008

I had another doctor's appointment yesterday, 10 weeks and 4 days, we heard baby Wilson's heartbeat. The heartbeat sounded very fast, it wasn't strong enough for the Doppler to pick up the exact bpm. My doctor said it was about 170 bpm, he's been doing this for quite a while, so I guess we'll go with his instinct:)

Everything is going well, I am a little anemic so I started taking medicine for that last night. We are looking forward to a quiet weekend!


Let it snow!

As many of you know, I am a Midwestern girl transplanted to South Louisiana almost 5 years ago. I absolutely love the South, but it is very hard to get in the holiday spirit when it's 70 degrees outside. Last night was the coldest night I have ever experienced since living down here. Mr. Wilson and I laid on the couch and had a warm, toasty fire. Before we went to bed I told him how I wish that just once I could wake up and see our rooftop covered in snow. There is nothing more beautiful to me!

Well, this morning Mr. Wilson came running into the bedroom (I need a lot of sleep and Mr. Wilson does not) and told me to get my butt out of bed. For this first time in 5 years, I woke up to snow covering the rooftops - and my poor daisies! They say this hasn't happened in South Louisiana in quite some time:)

The neighborhood was so fun this morning, we all gathered on our driveways taking pictures in our pajamas. There were even a few snowball thrown!


I love Pottery Barn!

I know it is really early to purchase a crib, but when you find a deal this good you have to take it! When we were in St. Louis after Thanksgiving we went into Pottery Barn Kids. In the middle of the show floor was one of the cribs I had been looking at. I went over to take a closer look with my mom and sister - and totally imagined baby Wilson in it. We all fell in love with it. My mom asked how much it was, and I of course said, way too much! I looked at the price tag to confirm and to my surprise, it was on sale for almost 1/2 price. Well to make a long story short, I didn't think it was such a good idea to buy a crib so early, so I didn't get it.

I took a little break from work today to check out Pottery Barn Kids and baby Wilson's crib was no longer available - oh no! I immediately called the store in St. Louis and worked with a lovely lady there for about an hour. They found a crib in the warehouse for me, and it will be here on the 16th. Again, I know it is too early to order nursery furniture, but I'm so excited that we were able to get baby Wilson's perfect crib!

Here is a picture of the crib, I ordered it in the espresso finish. I was also able to get an awesome deal on a side table in the same finish. I will order the matching dresser/changing table this Spring - they are ordering more in March, so there is no worry of it not being available:)


Ho Ho Ho!

Its finally starting to look like Christmas around the Wilson's. Friday night I had a sudden burst of energy and cleaned the whole house. Saturday morning I woke up and felt like a new woman - so the tree and holiday decorations went up. Sunday Mr. Wilson made me breakfast in bed, and then I napped on the couch until noon. I again awoke feeling great, so we did all of our Christmas shopping! I even got a few things wrapped last night when we got home! All I have left is a few online orders and we'll be good to go. With 4 sets of parents, too many siblings to count and 6 nieces and nephews - our list is quite large!

Here are some pictures of the tree and my favorite table decor yet. Merry Christmas!
