12-31-08 More Hiccups


Well it is New Year’s Eve, I cannot celebrate by bringing in the New Year 2009 by drinking a bit or dancing, way too big in belly and can’t have the alcohol. However, today my little gave me another fun treat to help me end the New Year, by getting yet another case of the hiccups, which just feels SO WEIRD!

Then I was organizing my Nursery a bit and decide to play some musical animal stuffies that play some cute familiar lullabies and the baby starting kicking so I held the stuffies up to my tummy for the baby to hear better.

I am looking forward to the New 2009 Year as we continue to hit our milestones together and move closer to the due date.

What is Needed Still

A few folks have asked me what we need now that we are getting closer to the due date. We will still need Bath accessories (Towels, wash rags, shampoo, etc.), Diapers & Wipes (sizes 1 & up), Clothes (sizes 0-3 mos. & up), SOCKS, shoes, crib sheets and basic care supplies. Hope this helps for those asking and or watching the blog.

12-28-08 (First experience of baby hiccups in Womb)


Today I experienced our baby getting it’s first set of hiccups in the womb. It felt like repeated twitching sort of under the skin in my lower belly, it was quite funny. I guess we both ATE GOOD.

Daddy & Mommy Share Xmas 08 with baby in Womb

Daddy grabbed our presents for the baby under the tree and sat on the couch with Mommy and told the baby what she/he got. The baby got:

3 Onsies
1 Outfit – Green Neutral Jungle Themed
2 – Pacifier’s
2 – Bibs
3 Rubber Ducky’s for the tub
Pacifier Holder that clips on the clothes
Horsey Jumperoo
Fleece Blanket

Yesterday the baby got a 3 pkg of Jungle Neutral Sleepers from my brother Johnny.

Our BeBe Fetal Heart Monitor

Yesterday on the way to Mom’s for our Xmas gathering, we stopped off and picked up a fetal heartbeat monitor for a whole $6.00, he he he he, another one of my good deals I found.

It is basically an amplified Stethoscope, will be cool to use on me and even the puppies, ha ha ha ha ha, we have a normal stethoscope but it will not pick up the pup heartbeats or the babies, just not sensitive enough.

Right now directions said to use it in the third trimester for the best results on a heartbeat, but we have heard a faint heartbeat so far and when the baby is moving it is perfect for hearing all the bumps against the stethoscope. It has a recording device on it for me to record the sounds, COOL HUH, I will have to play around with it and see how it works between now and the third trimester phase. If I ever get any good sounds, I will record them and send them for folks to listen.

One thing is cool is it can also allow me to record my own heartbeat for after the baby is born to help relax the baby. I will have to do this, that will be COOL . . .

12-02-08 Baby Wiggles

Tonight, Daddy Smith was finally able to sit and place his hand on my belly and get lots of entertain with baby Smith. While soaking in the tub, baby’s favorite movement time, I called in Sean, told him to place his hand on my belly. Sean put his hand right where my panty line would be (of course this is normal panty line, not prego panty lines, ha ha ha) and the entertainment began. He got some GREAT kicks/punches until the baby literally wore itself out playing against daddy’s hand. It was a shining moment and we look forward to many more to come.

Nursery Wall with Dresser

This wall that sits behind the dresser will NOT have a mural, we have hung decorative wall hooks that came with and match the bedding on this wall. I put the little animals on the Frame on the dresser and the Elephant Piggy bank was mine as a child that now will be used and passed onward to Baby Smith.

11-23-08 First Mural Painted by Tammy

Last night I traced the Giraffe mural on the wall and when I got up this morning both of us went to work on our separate projects. Sean worked on finishing up sanding the book shelves and putting the first coat of stain on it and I went to work working on the first Mural.

WOW, hard work, took me from morning till 3pm to get this smaller of all the murals done between me taking breaks and letting paint dry in between the colors and coats. All in all I would say it turned out cute and once the curtain is back in place hiding the neck base it will look like it fits in well.

Here are the snap shots we tried to grab of me working on it and the finished product. I can’t wait until I get all the planned murals done and we set the room up.
