17 weeks and more!

I love this time of year! I love when the tulips pop up and there are blossoms on the trees. I'm sure Ryan prays for this time of year to end quickly because his allergies get so bad. I also love the fresh strawberries! These made an appearance in our home last week and they were delicious! This is just before I cut them all up and froze most of them for sweet treats to come.

When we moved (someday I will post pics of our new place), Bella was totally freaking out. She would just follow us everywhere and whine and want to be held. Obviously I can't box things up while holding a dog in my arms. So, I found my scarf and decided to make a sling out of it, much like you would do for your little babies. She sat snuggled up next to me for hours on moving day. I think it made her feel a little bit safer even though her entire world was crumbling around her. Poor little thing. This move has been really tough on her.

On to bigger and better news, we got this most beautiful crib. I am totally in love with it. Ry and I put it together today in about an hour. I have seen this crib in the store for months and dreamed that it would one day be mine. Yes, as of now we are only getting one crib. We will probably end up getting another one once the mini humans can roll over on their own and attempt to smother each other. Until then, they will be sleeping right next to each other, much like they do in my belly.
And now the ugliest picture of me ever taken. This is me at 17 weeks. My belly is growing, growing, but I'm still not gaining weight. (Please don't mind the ponytail/no make-up version of me. This is what happens when you work from home all day and go nowhere.)

Your crib is beautiful!! How fun!! I love the dog-sling. It is also a good way to get used to carrying a baby(ies) around!! I saw a lady at Tai Pan slinging her twins in one and they were as happy as clams in there. You should do that too ha ha :)
