29/30 weeks.

On Friday, Brock and I went and got a 4d ultrasound of baby girl! She of course was not cooperating... she was holding her feet on top of her head by holding her calves with her hands! I just don't understand how that can be comfortable... also, they said the umbilical cord was across her face- so in the pictures you can see either dots on her face or it is fuzzy. Here are just a few pics from the session! (29wks)
Here I am at 29 weeks- 2 days until 30...
Knowing that I know NOTHING about babies... Danielle was super sweet and offered to take me to Babies R' Us and register! She of course had to try out everything before I registered for it... and show me how to use it!
Brock and I try to be good aunt and uncle so we went with some of the nephews and nieces to the pumpkin patch! They seemed to be way more excited about the wagon than any of the rides and pumpkins. Crazy to think we will have a little one at the pumpkin patch next year!
Then, a nursery update:
Mom started painting this weekend! I am super excited to see the finished product. So far she has done the stripes at the top. 
Left to do: the molding, the raccoons and the paint cans :)

baby hadley.

By request of the sis-in-laws, I am blogging "the bump"! 
Welcome baby girl Hadley! Yes, the Andrus men are capable of having girls!
The profile picture was from my 22 week appointment, and the foot from my 16 week.

 I am now 27 weeks and other than pictures of the inside of me, there are only 2 in existence. 
(both of these taken last week, 26 weeks)

I do have a pretty amazing picture from when I was in the hospital. I had to have an MRI taken because the doctors thought I had appendicitis. I will try and get it so I can post it - it is pretty amazing.

We are now moved into our new home and slowly trying to pull it all together! I have started on the nursery and the next step is to have my talented Mom come in and paint!

I have finally started shopping for clothes and have decided baby gap and I are going to have a long, loving relationship until she hits 2- then I am going to cheat on baby gap with crewcuts- obsessed! 
We are very excited and can't wait to meet her! She should make her grand arrival around January 11th. The name has been a struggle and we have finally decided on Hadley- despite several people being strongly against it :) The middle name is still up for debate... juggling between two names. One pretty unique...

I am a huge worry wart and all I have been praying for these days is for a healthy, smart, beautiful baby girl!
