We have started to work on Hiccup Love's nursery. My parents are coming the first weekend of August with our crib, changing table/dresser, rocker, twin bed, and piano. My parents suggested we go ahead and paint before furniture was put into room, so we said "we are off on Friday, so we'll do it when we get back from Chicago!" Friday morning, we put on our grubbies and went to Home Depot. Still not knowing exactly what color we wanted to paint, we brought some of the bedding with us to help with the decision. Green, Yellow, or Mocha......these were our options. There is no brown in the bedding, but I picked the crib and changing table based on having mocha, we found "light mocha." Kind of a pinky/browny, chocolate ice cream kind of color. The bedding is cream/pink toile, green, pink, yellow, and cream plaid, and cream, pink, green checked. .... The bed and changing table are almond with brown rubbed in, kind of shabby chic looking. I taped the edges of walls, and Josiah painted.....Unfortunately, I could not help much with the painting (fumes). Here are pictures of the room so far! PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!! Next weekend, my mom and I will work on getting all of the bedding set up, and I will post more pics!!

22 1/2 weeks pregnant!

I have been feeling the baby move like crazy! It is so amazing to feel a little jab here and there, knowing it's probably her sweet little foot or knee! ha ha! Also, this past Saturday, Josiah was able to feel her for the first time. Ever since then, he has started talking more to her. I will let you know the first song he sings to her. I hope it will be the lullaby he started to write in college!! He has been adding to it since he found out we were having a girl. It goes something like this: "Close your eyes my sweet baby, evening's over the day. The sun is set free, again. Let your thoughts drift away............. Rest your head, "Love", My Darling. Soon, your sweet dreams will come. Lay your head on your pillow. Now the daylight is gone." But to hear HIM sing it brings tears to my eyes....honestly, it is beautiful.

Here is the most recent pic of me....22 1/2 weeks pregnant and
"WHOA, where did that come from?!?!?!?"

One more item to add to "Think Pink" below:

During our ultrasound, we saw her opening her mouth to swallow fluid (which is a good thing). As we were watching her, she got the hiccups (also a good thing) and it made her entire body bounce. Josiah thought this was sooooooooooo adorable so her nicknamed her "Hiccup." So, for right now, her name is "Hiccup!"

Love it!

Think Pink!!!

That's right! We had our 20 week appointment today with ultrasound and saw that we are having a sweet little girl!!! I could not be more thrilled!!! Josiah was shocked but he's very excited! He loved seeing my face when the doctor told us. She said that everything else was looking good...brain, kidneys, stomach, bladder.......and heart. The sweet little heart and its' four chambers. Many of you don't know that I had a sister. Her name was Autumn Love and she died when she was four. She had only 2 chambers in her heart. It was an answer to our prayers to see that our little baby "Love" had four. We are going to use the middle name Love in honor of my sister. Also, my mom has this middle name and other aunts and cousins. We don't know the first name yet, but will let you know when we decide! Please continue to pray for our little one. My due date is still November 17!!!

THRILLED and BLESSED beyond measure,

Josiah and Candace
