Thankful Thursdays (Link Up!)...

Loved and Lovely

There is so, so much to be thankful for this week.

First, {I'm thankful} that we got the results from our quad screen on Tuesday, and everything is normal.  For anyone who, like me, had no idea what this was was until my doctor told me about it, a quad screen tests for elevated hormone levels related to certain genetic disorders, such as Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18.  We had no real reason to worry, but I was definitely relieved when my doctor's office called with the good news.  And then I realized that my life was going to be filled with moments like these, hoping and praying that our little one is safe, healthy, and happy.  Heaven help us when we hit the teenage years...

{I'm thankful} for this GORGEOUS weather we've got here in the Dallas area.  You will never ever hear me complain when the temperatures drop.  Bring on the peacoats and scarves, y'all! 

{I'm thankful} to have snuck in another sushi lunch this week, this time with my mom.  (And lest any of you judge me, I promise I'm only eating the cooked stuff, and I'm staying within the weekly allotment for shrimp, etc.)  It's wonderful that she works just down the street from me because it means I get a little more one-on-one time with her every now and then.

{I'm thankful} that we're finding out the sex of the baby next week because I really need a push to get my butt in gear and start checking things off our to-do list.  I've basically done nothing so far, reasoning that we can't very well pick anything out until we know what we're having.  Now I'll have nursery colors to pick out, and all kinds of baby gear to ponder.  And speaking of baby gear, I'm thinking of doing a series on Tuesdays where I ask you guys to chime in on your suggestions for strollers, carseats, bassinets, bottles, etc.  I figure you guys are probably my best resource for tried and true suggestions, and I fully intend on taking advantage of you!

Alright, gals, what are you guys thankful for this week?  Link up and tell us!

Also linking up with black tag diaries, The Fontenot Four, First Day of my Life, kate says stuff, and  a punk a pumpkin and a peanut.

I'll have to be reading those Tuesday posts to see what everyone says. We've already picked out the nursery furniture and the car seat. We knew we would want something neautral in case we happen to have another one down the road. =) I'm so excited for next week. What day do y'all go?

Can I tell you how panicky I'm starting to feel about getting things done?!?! I know that 18 weeks SOUNDS like a long time but I feel like it's not!
