A little weird when the doc flat out said "Wow, your boobs have really grown. They are huge!" Um...thank goodness she is a woman but still weird to hear nonetheless! I guess it makes for a good story though.
Also very excited that I got the clearance to go up to Tahoe the first weekend in March to see our friends Bob and Katie who will be up there on vacation. We had heard that you can't travel up to high altitudes after 27 weeks as it might put you into labor. Doc said that wsa just an old wives tale and that as long as I feel good we should go and have some fun!
Oh, and we bought Meghan's plane ticket to come out on May 16th. For those of you who don't know, Meghan graduates from college May 2nd and isn't starting teaching until the Fall so Jeff and I have hired her to be our summer nurse! :-) We are so excited for Meghan to be a part of our little boys first few months!
That's about it on baby!
Regarding kitchen: Marisa comes out here tomorrow. We have a packed weekend inclding ordering the cabinets, meeting with the contractor, a trip to the tile place, the granite place, and the lighting place. I am going to be zonked out on Sat night!!!

I got my most recent blood test results back...and good news...no gestational diabetes!
Also good news is that I found out why I have been sooooooooooo tired all the time. I was blaming just "being pregnant" as the cause for my need for 11 hours of sleep a night but as it turns out, I am anemic. So hopefully the iron pills I have started taking will give me a little energy boost so I can get back into my walking routine! :-)

Amongst all the craziness in preparing for little Baby Goslin, most of you know we have decided to renovate the kitchen. We don't currently have a dishwasher, and we know we will need one once the little one arrives...so why not redo the whole kitchen, right!? Anyway, thanks to Marisa for all of her help in designing the new space and for helping us pick out the tile, granite, cabinets etc...we definitely couldn't do this without her! We have spent lots and lots of time in Home Depot, Lowes, appliance centers, cabinet places, granite and tile places and are just about ready to pull the trigger and make some big purchases...wish us luck!!!

I am NY for work this week and it was 60 degrees here today...so weird! I didn't even need a coat and it is January!
We painted the baby's room this past weekend and it looks soooo good! We are putting a chair rail up next weekend and we painted the top of the room light blue and the bottom navy blue...should go perfectly with the nautical theme. I am so excited and it is all feeling very real now...can't believe we are going to be parents in May!
We are still in a name debate. I am calling the little guy Jake and Jeff is calling him Hunter! Not sure we will ever agree!! Too funny!

We also got to meet my other best friend Kellys 5 and a half month old Peyton! She is a doll. We went to the beach, out to lunch, and to a dinner party and she was truly an angel! Unfortunately I have no pics, but it was so great to finally meet the little one!!! And he Daddy being deployed today for 7 months to the Philippines so please keep their family in your prayers!
We celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve at my house, so on Christmas day, the men in our family went out fishing while the girls relaxed at home (most recovering from the night prior!) The boys caught dinner which was great, they also caught a shark (let it go back) but see pics below...and yes, that is my Dad in the wife beater...what a stud! HAHAHA!
Here we are out to lunch on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.
We rang in the New Year 70's style at Marty the Party and Jammin' Jim's Disco Dance Party...was a great time! It was also very nice to wake up on New Years day without a hangover!!!
