16 Weeks and Counting...

So yesterday was the beginning of week 16. I'm beginning to relax a bit though I think there will always be a bit of that nervous worry in the back of my mind until January. All in all I'm feeling good and am enjoying every day as it comes. Starting to think a bit more about the registry (and yes, believe it or not it kind of scares me) and how much stuff there is out there for babies. Gear from strollers to pack 'n' plays to bath time stuff to is one supposed to decipher the needed from the luxury as well as the useful from the pointless...I'm definitely picking some brains. The other part that's making me really think is that with the exception of 2 babies, all of the other babies I know have been born in Spring or Summer...and we all know how January can be so I want to make sure we have appropriate attire to bring him/her home in.

J is having a blast. Last night he put his ear to my belly and tried to hear something going on inside. He said it sounds like water wooshing or constantly moving...Nugget already has Daddy wrapped...And I love it. :)
