We had another check up today. Everything is well. The baby's heartbeat today was 153. It is pretty amazing how quickly time seems to be passing. We have 17 weeks until our little one is here.
Week 23 Facts:
The baby is weighing about 1 pound.
The pancreas is developing around this time.
Other things I have been learning along the way...
: Car seats have about a six year life span until they expire.
: Registering is overwhelming and exhausting! The first time we went, we had to leave after about the first 20 minutes because we didn't know even where to begin! (By the way we are at Babies'R'Us and we have completed our registry!)
: New mothers are irreplaceable! Thank goodness for a few of my close friends who have just had children! They have been such a guide and support with knowing how to even comprehend and prepare for the little one.

October 31st -- Happy Halloween
We had our first party in Dalton, OH where we got to share with many of my friends and family that I grew up with. Here are some pictures from the revealing.
So as people were coming in, we had them sign up for what they thought their guess was
The set up including mom's beautiful fall cookies!
The final guesses...
Mom, ofcourse being mom..., got a boy present and a girl present. It was very fitting.
Aunt Debbie got everyone aliened. Those who think it was a girl stood on this side...
Those who thought it was a boy stood on this side...
The beautiful cake made by a lovely lady named Janice Knapp. Our good friend from dairy queen who makes all of our specialty cakes! (Including all 9 wedding ice cream cakes!)
And ofcourse the anticipation was a killer...
Here it comes...
It's all BLUE!! and yes, we did all have blue mouths after we were done eating it!
Mom's pretty little outfit that she got for our little baby boy.
And what would a party be without these two goofballs!
We all agreed that the bows on their heads need to be switched!! : )
