21 Weeks! Pink or Blue?

PINK OR BLUE?
 Dan and I found out Friday what the gender of the baby would be. We waited until Sunday (my next day off work) to invite our parents over for lunch to reveal to them the gender of their grandchild. 
Dan and I made the above cupcakes and filled the insides with frosting to indicate the baby's gender.

This is one of the several ultrasound pictures we received from the appointment.

Maternity Clothes: I can completely still wear my own shirts as long as they have some stretch to them (otherwise the feel to confining, good-bye work shirts hello maternity tops!). But I have basically moved into my maternity jeans and leggings.

Best Moment: I had to work Saturday and Dan went to Burlington (our closest City in VT). While he was there he went to Motherhood Maternity and picked me up to more pairs of maternity jeans, they were BOG50%. 
He also surprised with a SNOOGLE!  What is a snoogle you ask? 
Only the only greatest invention for a tired achy pregnant woman.


According to the woman at the store this is  better than a nursing pillow and our kids will LOVE IT! 
I am pretty sure she was not meaning our furbabies but all 3 of them have been curling up next to it.

My Papa (dad's dad) also bought us something for the baby. (Well my aunt bought it for him to give to us) Here is what it was...
