we're so stinking excited. we didn't care what we were getting as long as it was healthy. but we are VERY happy with God's choice.
she is a very healthy little girl. average in her size and weight and her heart rate is great. she was being difficult today though. she was burying her head clear up by my belly button and then covering it up with her little hands. we didn't get a good picture of her little girl parts, but we saw enough that it was NOT a boy. she waved at us too! we did get a good picture of that. we haven't decided on a name for sure. i don't think we're going to share til we are absolutely sure.
side note, my cyst/mass looks fine. it appears to have stayed in the same location and same size. so no worries there. thank goodness.
this is my belly at 18 weeks, it doesn't look very big, but my pants are TIGHT. maternity pants have called my name and i LOVE them!
here are our pictures from today (19 weeks)

i'm at work and i'm sitting...yet again. so far today i have an appointment at 330 and 4. i'm starting to get discouraged. maybe my busy time is the end of the month and the rest of the month suffers! oh well. the worst part is, when i'm not busy it makes me unmotivated to do work when i am busy. i'm trying to break the cycle though. i took a color appointment at 4pm today. i originally planned on leaving at 4, but now i'm going to stay and make $70. well worth it!
other news, i've been thinking alot recently about doing some kind of fundraiser at the shop for breast cancer. today, i was asked to do mini manicures at the bowl for a "bowling for boobs" fundraiser. i'm hoping this will motivate me to really start planning something. the whole thought behind it came from my good friend's mom. well, she had breast cancer and is a SURVIVOR! ashley also cuts hair, and i know she would totally want to be a part of it. i haven't got to talk to her recently to tell her my idea, but i'm counting her in! haha. i'm just thinking about a "pink" day, where we do cuts all day and the profits go to breast cancer. i still have a lot of planning to go through and such, but it's a start. i hope i can do it and make it really successful. if so, hopefully it can be something we do once a year for breast cancer. i'm excited about it.
next subject...we moved! only 100yds, but it was stressful! but we are all settled now! it's so nice. i love it. i can't wait to find out what baby bean is so we can decorate it's room. i've felt unsure about it's sex forever, but recently i've wanted to call it a girl. not that i have a "feeling" it's a girl or a boy, but everyone thinks it's a girl and it's starting to rub off on me. only a week and a day left! hopefully the little booger cooperates!
ok, that is all for now, when i feel motivated i'll post some pictures of our new home/trailer.

Please say a prayer for my niece. She was admitted into the hospital yesterday. She has had the flu since Sunday and couldn't keep any fluids down. They gave her 3 bags of fluids and said she was pretty dehydrated. They did some chest x-rays to make sure they weren't missing something. She has an ear infection, bronchitis, and the stomach flu! She's a tough little one, she only was showing signs of the flu. She's feeling much better already, the she has to keep her fluids down and the Dr. might release her today. She's only 3, but she's a tough cookie. Please keep her and my family in your prayers. I'm off to see the little nugget before work. I'll keep you updated.

its been a really long time, so how about an update?
is doing very well. i'm almost 17 weeks now. my last appointment went really well. we heard the heartbeat and the doctor said it sounded great. the little thing was going between 153 and 157 the whole time. a few weeks before that it was 163-165. my mother-in-law thinks that it's a boy b/c of its heart rate. everyone else is still determined its a girl. i have no idea! we go on the 25th to find out what it is. names are getting difficult. we originally planned on Caroline Jo for a girl and "fill in blank" Douglas for a boy, boy names are hard. haha but recently i've been really paranoid that Caroline is a popular name. i know there are a few in shelbyville under the age of 3 and i just dont know if i'm cool with that. plus that new movie is out called coraline, so i'm afraid that will be popular. so new names: Penelope JoAnn(after kylie's gma) or Catherine(after kylie's mom and gma kat) JoAnn. i told kylie he gets final vote, and he told me it will probably be Penelope. who know?! boys: Douglas Stuart-i love this name. i had conjoined twin brothers named Douglas and Daniel, so Douglas Stuart Daniel, nails both my bros, also my dad's name is Stuart, and Douglas is a family name on Kylie's side. all around PERFECT name. kylie doesn't like it. douglas is not a good first name he says. he loves Oliver Douglas. i like this name, but i'm not sold. so he said if i let him pick, it will be Oliver. i'm so torn. i can't wait to find out what it is! on another note, i'm pretty sure i can feel it move. they say you can around this time, but i'm just not sure. i've never had a baby before, and so i don't know what it feels like. its odd. any insight on the names?
so we're moving this saturday. we currently live in my parents trailer park in the lovely lot 55. we're moving to the beautiful lot 18! ridiculous, i know. i never thought i would pack up all my things to move 100 yards. 18 needed a TON of work, the same man lived there for 20 yrs and never updated or CLEANED! they ripped up all the carpet, and had to fix almost the entire floor. it was terrible. anyway, this weekend was painting weekend. everything needed painted. all the ceilings and all the walls. luckily we had a big paint crew. my mom, abbie, cathy and greg, kolby and tiff, kylie, me, and my dad later. i had to work from 10-12, and when i came back i was blown away. they had a coat of primer on the entire thing! it was awesome. by the end of the day sat, we had all the ceilings done(except for the living room) all the walls, bathroom, and baby room done! and 2 coats on our bedroom ceiling and walls. we kicked butt! sunday we had to paint the ceiling in the living room again! it took about 6 coats. then we painted the cabinets and finished the bedroom. my dad fixed the bathroom floor then surprised me with wood floor in there. my uncle came and laid it and it's beautiful! plus we got new sinks and toilet in the bath. cathy cleaned the terrible tub and now it looks great! she was the woman for the job, she has lots of patience. then we got all the cabinet knobs on and all the blind hung. tonight's agenda: put down carpet pad, clean oven, hang curtain rods, paint laundry room doors. then tuesday and wednesday, lay carpet. my mom and me might move some of my stuff over that can be put away in cabinets today. then maybe friday, kylie and jade can move some furniture. that is if kylie gets off work early. they called him in yesterday at 2:30, they called twice and he said no. then they called again and said he had to come. so he left and didn't get home till 12:30am. i was pretty upset with WAND, but i guess it was 10 hours of overtime and he might get friday off. so it was a blessing in disguise.
well i gotta get my deposits ready and get cleaned up so i can go to MENARDS :)
