Measuring small...

So I had a doc appt. on Monday to make sure "Bucky" was doing well. The last time I went to the doctor was on Dec. 12th, when I developed a hernia. No fun, but really no big deal. At that point I was 31 weeks and 3 days and was measuring right at 31 weeks. Well when I went on Monday I only measured 31 weeks again. My midwife was very nonchalant about it...making it seem like no big deal, but 3 weeks off seems a bit much to me. She ordered an ultrasound for me to make sure all is well, and although I was calm at that time, I'm getting more and more anxious to see if everything is okay. I don't go to the doc until Friday for the ultrasound... This might be the longest 5 days ever! From what I've been told and read online, it is either absolutely nothing to worry about, or it is something serious. How lovely. There is no middle ground on this one. Has anyone else measured small? If so...what happened????!!!!

Had to post this picture of Zach because his little face just melts my heart! Adorable!

Tooth Fairy

Saw this idea and thought it was adorable and not too difficult to make! (For anyone who knows me, that means I'll ask my mother to make one! lol!) Found it HERE for more money than I typically spend... but a VERY cute idea nonetheless!


My friend Leslie found this story in our local paper and posted it on her blog. After reading it and just about wetting myself, I thought I would share it with the rest of you! Pay special attention to the last sentence! Enjoy THIS story!

A quick preview of the crib:I need to iron everything and really put it together, but at least you can see what it looks like! And I promise to take some pictures this week of my growing belly!

Hope all is well with everyone! All my love!

Thank You Hoggan's!!!!!!!!!!

So I got home today and found a package waiting for me! Of course I was thrilled...I mean who doesn't love to get a package in the mail!?!?!?!! The return address said Hoggan's...which I knew to be Meredith's parents, Marilyn and Bruce. I tore open the paper and opened the box to find the CUTEST baby gifts! All individually wrapped with baby footprint ribbon and all perfect for not only our baby boy, but my rough and tough hubby as well! A backhoe, a heavy hauler romper, the most adorable pair of stride rites, and a wooden train! The shoes especially tickled me pink (or should I say blue!)! I mean I've seen cute shoes before, but something about this little pair of blue and white shoes won me over! I'll be sure to send a formal thank you note, but I had to blog about our wonderful gift from wonderful people! The Hoggan's always treated me like family and I feel so loved and blessed to continue to have a relationship with them...even if they are 3000 miles away. Thanks Marilyn and Bruce! Hope to see you oh so soon!

Oh Boy...

I just found Kris' baby book. One word describes how I am feeling right now. YIKES. He was 9lbs 3 oz and 22 inches long. Pretty much he was a beast! At least I can't imagine giving birth to anything that large! I am praying our little guy is more like his momma...a good 7 pounder! And, to top it off, Kris grew 12 inches in his first year of life! I swear he was as big as Blake (my 18 month old nephew) is now! Plus, he wore a size 7 shoe when he was 14 months old. NO ONE BUY SHOES FOR THIS CHILD! lol!

Oh goodness. I think I'm starting to panic already! Kally- take slow, deep breaths...

Here is the baby bump. Yep...definitely getting BIGGER! I am 7 1/2 months here. Guess I should listen to the horizontal stripe! Do you think they make me look fat? lol! Oh...and so sorry about the glare in the second picture!

Hooray! Kris and I got our new stockings, delivered via express mail from Santa Janet's workshop! My mom made it a tradition to make new stockings (she made our original ones after we were born) for all of her children once they got married. She then makes them for the grandchildren as they arrive. Since Kris and I were married this year, we got our stockings! Baby will have to wait until next year...I'm sure he won't mind! I've literally been waiting to get my new stocking for YEARS! Ever since Mom made Kelsee and Jason's I've wanted one of my own, and now I have it! Hanging proudly in my living room, looking as darling as ever! She does such a good job and each stocking is unique to the person she's making it for! Kris' stocking has tools (oh so appropriate!) and mine has an ice skater with big eyes! lol! Kris thinks my obsession with the stockings is a bit odd, but it's just one of those special things my mom does, and BY FAR one of the best Christmas presents I've ever received! Thanks Mom!
