Baby Kaolin at 24 weeks 5 days

Here is our little girl, Kaolin. I went in for just a regular doctor's visit on Tuesday and the doctor couldn't find Kaolin's heartbeat with the little machine she uses normally. Of course I was pretty scared and was going through everything I had done that month worrying about if I had done something wrong. So the doctor had me get an ultrasound to check on the baby's heartbeat and if everything else was ok. As soon as the ultrasound started the little heartbeat was right there and was 150 beats/min which is where it has been so far. So she is just fine and healthy but the doctor said that she must have been laying in the wrong position and was hard to read the heartbeat. Anyway, after the little scare I ended up getting to have the new 4D ultrasound. It was amazing how clear the picture is!! I could see all of her little features and you can really tell what she looks like from this picture.

What a cute little nose! That is the first thing everyone says when they see the picture. And I'm not sure or not but she looks like she has a little bit of hair already. I didn't have any hair till I was two or three years old and Mitch came out with a full head of hair so she got something from her daddy. What a cute little girl she is!!

This is not as clear as the other picture of course but if you can tell her little mouth is open in this picture. She must be laughing at how she scared mommy for the first time. I am so glad that everything is fine and that she is a very active and healthy baby and that we were able to get a get picture of her but hopefully next visit she is in a good position in the first place to find that little heartbeat.


Well I guess with all this rain keeping us out of the field I needed a project to keep me busy. So one day I decided to work on my kitchen, this is a project that I have wanted to start ever since we moved in. So far it is going just fine hopefully it will look much better when i'm done!

These are before pictures of the kitchen. Love that paneling, it isn't really that bad but it just made the room so much darker.
Then these are not quite after but gettting there. I used drywall mud and drywall tape to fill in all of the grooves in the paneling so the surface is smooth. I just finished putting the second coat of mud on over the taped layer so that we dont see the tape after the paint is done. It has been quite a job but it is much easier for me than ripping out all of the paneling and redrywalling. That would have taken me a lot longer. I love how it looks so far and cant wait for it to be done and my house wont be such a mess!!

Almost 25 weeks along in this picture. Cant really see but I'm definately showing now I'll have to post better pictures of the belly.
