At my last doctor appointment they gave us our C-section date. Baby Keith will arrive on February 13, 2012!! They gave me an ultrasound too to measure him to see how big he is and he weighs 2 pounds 13oz. They estimated him to weigh a little over 7 pounds when he is born. I'm so excited and can't wait to meet my son :) We will spend Valentines day in the hospital recovering from my surgery but it will all be worth it. I told Keith that he can just bring in some take-out for our dinner that night lol We have a little less than 9 weeks left and I'm getting so anxious!!
My baby shower is going to be on January 29th which is super close to the due date but with the holidays, Gaspirilla, and Super Bowl Sunday it was pretty much the only day to do it. Hopefully everyone that I invite shows up. I had a great baby shower when I was pregnant with Hannah so I imagine this one will be just as fun.
I have maternity pictures being taken on Saturday and I'm really excited about that. I'm going to have daddy and Hannah in the pictures with me and I know they will come out super cute!! I have my next doctor appointment on December 22, and I will keep everyone posted on any news.

Daddy painted the piece of wicker furniture for baby Keith's nursery and it came out so nice!! I'm so proud of him :) It looks great against the apple green paint color in the nursery. For non-professionals, I think our nursery is coming along more than great!!
We are both getting anxious for our little guys arrival. We have a little less than 10 weeks before he makes his world debut. I feel like we have so much to do and not enough time, but honestly we only have a few more little things to do and were done. If the baby came today we have everything we NEED to bring him home, I just want everything perfect and ready just like I did with my sweet girl. The downfall of being a mommy with OCD!!
This was the first year that we had a house to invite all of our family over to for Thanksgiving. I cooked my very first turkey too and it was sooooo goood!! We had lots of leftovers so I made a potato/cheese/broccoli/ham soup with the left over honeybaked ham and it was delicious!! I made up the recipe myself too and it tasted great!! I was super tired after the day was done but it was worth it to spend time with my family!! I can't wait until Christmas!!

Here are a few pictures of baby Keith's nursery :) We still Have all of Hannah's toys in there, we will probably move them after the first of the year when it's almost time for her baby brother to be born. We decided on Green Apple for the color instead of just doing a blue color and it came out really nice. It matches his bedroom set perfectly. His crib set has monkeys on it and the colors are green, brown, and orange. I also painted some monkeys on some canvas to use as his wall art. I think they came out pretty good for my first time drawing and painting a monkey :) We have a piece of wicker furniture that we are painting brown to go with the theme and we are getting all dark wood furniture.
As were getting closer to having this special little guy, the pregnancy is becoming really hard on my body. I have officially decided (with the advice of my doctors), this will be my last baby. I think my family will be complete with one sweet girl and one handsome little guy :) I really couldn't ask for more. I feel blessed to have been able to have the beautiful little girl that I do and soon enough we will have a sweet little boy to add to our family!!
I will take a few more belly pics on Sunday when I'm 27 weeks and I will post them :)

Mommy, Daddy, and Hannah went to the fair on Sunday :) It was Hannah's first time riding on all of the rides by herself. It was bittersweet to see her on the rides by herself. I was so happy she was doing okay on her own and not crying or being scared but it was also the day I realized just how grown up she is becoming. She really isn't my baby anymore :( but she is growing into such a beautiful little girl that I love more and more each day. She will always be my baby deep down inside!! Oh and by the way, Miss Hannah now wants a pet cow since playing with some at the fair. I tried to tell her our house is too small for a cow and she replied, "It's okay mommy, it can sleep in my bed!!" We will have to talk this over with daddy first lol

For paper mache:
Flour, Water, Salt, Balloons, Newspaper
Orange Tissue paper, Black Tissue paper, Green pipe cleaners, Glue
To make paper mache add 2cups flour, 2cups water, and 1T salt in large bowl. Stir until mixed and no lumps. Then use strips of news paper to cover a balloon that is blown up. Let dry for 24 hours or until completely dry.
Use orange tissue paper and glue it to hardened paper mache. I popped the balloon after it dried and it let the pumpkin stand up better. Cover the entire pumpkin with the orange tissue paper. Then cut out face parts (eyes, nose, mouth) with the black tissue paper and glue on to the pumpkin. Last step is to poke the green pipe cleaners around the top to make a stem. These came out really cute!!
