Baby Obando

As you may know by now, Edwin, Chucho, & I are expecting a new family member in early October! We are beyond excited about this new addition (well, for sure 2/3 of us are!) and I can't believe I haven't even blogged about it....

Here he/she is! A little gymnast with feet in its face.
Baby Obando is 21 weeks and 4 days at this point. Baby is very healthy as per the recent ultrasound that my mom accompanied me to. I think she is a bit more excited that Edwin & I sometimes - she has bought SO many outfits for the baby, I think it has a full wardrobe already! She will be an excellent grandma, no doubt about it.

The adorable basket Amanda gave me that is full of baby clothes, blankets and toys already. (there have been more added since this photo!)
We are not going to find out the gender, much to a lot of peoples dismay. We just want that amazing surprise when it is born! And if its a boy and wears pink for a few weeks, I am not too concerned. (and vice versa) We will be thrilled regardless of what gender it is, and don't have any plans to paint the baby room any particular color.

So far, we have a crib (pictured above) but need to get sheets for it still. We also have a rocking chair that Heidi gave us. Next up is a dresser to purchase, as well as stroller and carseat. As well as decor for the room! 

There are just SO many cute baby things out there, I have to hold back on buying them all. This has been my favourite so far, but I could not bring myself to spend $80 on it:

How cute would it be as a toy bin, or laundry basket?! (its pretty large)
In terms of pregnancy, I've been feeling pretty good the whole time! I had one solid week of nausea, which was not particularly fun, but I cannot complain compared to others who have nausea throughout the whole pregnancy... I am just tired and some random aches and pains. I've also had to wear maternity pants recently to accommodate this baby bump!

I am sure there will be more updates to come on this little guy/gal of ours, not to worry!
