Baby bliss

Yesterday we saw our sweet baby via ultrasound.
Such an amazing feeling to see the little limbs that have been fluttering about in my belly. The tec said I am 19 weeks and 3 days which is better than the 18wks and 6 days that I was first told. We'll see what the follow up ultrasound has to say. She didn't get a good measurement of baby's head because baby is tucked way down in my pelvis just like Elliott was. Any excuse to see my little one again is a good one!
Too bad the picture is sideways. And since I haven't figured out how to get my photos from my phone to my computer it's a gong show to me as to how to edit this photo before uploading in to my blog. Ah well, I'll figure it out one day by accident I am sure.

Ray bought a new BBQ today as our old one bit the dust. It's real perdy. We had BBQ chicken and roasted potatoes with tossed salad for dinner. First BBQ of the season. I immediately made my grocery/weekly menu which consists of 5 BBQ dinners. I love BBQ season.

In an attempt to save money and become more aware of my spending, I am making a weekly menu and then shopping for it instead of just buying whatever I think we need or might eat from the grocery store. Last week we stuck to it most of the time. I think we strayed from it twice one of which times we went to the Keg and spent $100! What can you do? Baby steps in the right direction is all I can attempt. Here's hoping that the change will follow.

Progress on the renos goes slow. Ray is plugging away at the mudding of the crawlspace and I am attempting to finish up hemming and dapping and painting trim in the living room. I really want to move on but unfortunately, energy is used up on parenting, healing, and incubating. Alas, I do what I can and will post photos as we go.

Off to hem some curtains before my eyelids get too heavy!
Tomorrow I WILL start Elliott's big girl room!!!! I WILL, I WILL!

well, we'll see :)
