Win, Zach and Baby Update

I got my final giveaway package in the mail last week. That was a fun couple of days going to the mailbox! This one came from Southern Fried Gal. We have been reading each other's blogs for awhile and she lives in my hometown.

She sent this whole box of goodies! Plates, napkins, recipe pamphlets, "Dream", notepad, a candle and a Southern Living at Home candle holder. I love it all! I've had the candle burning all weekend and it smells so good. Thank you so much Carmella!
Just for fun I am posting this adorable picture of Zach. I kept him a couple of weeks ago and he had to have these socks and hat on. He wore them all night. I just thought it was too cute and he looks like such a big boy! I cannot believe he will be 2 next month!

Some of you have asked to see a baby bump picture. Here you go:

This is at 15 and a half weeks. I had my 15 week appointment last week and everything looked great. The heartbeat is still in the 150's. We bought a heart doppler online that Jill recommended and it is so fun! This is the one we got if anyone is interested. My Dr. showed me how to use it so now we can hear the heartbeat anytime. Our Dr. is also letting us find out what we are having on October 14th! This is about 2 weeks earlier than usual but I asked and she said, "Sure!" Did I mention that we love her? We will have a big party that night with our family and some friends to all find out together what it is. More on that later though. :)

I think that is the sweetest lil bump I ever did see~

Brittany said...

Cute "bump". I think at 15 weeks, I already looked like a cow! You're so tiny, which makes me think it's a girl!... Love all your winnings, you are a lucky girl when it comes to those... My SIL did a gender reveal party with her first. They are becoming quite popular and have such cute ways to "reveal" these days. I am impatient, and had to tell everyone immediately! ha!

Congrats to you again!

Love the little bump, Shannon! Zach is a cutey also in those pink socks....Oh and the goodies are so much fun...love smelling the candles...well virtual smell...hehehe

Rambling Girl said...

Also forgot to mention I love seeing all your other fall decor...I saw it late one night and at those times I just look and not comment cause I might not make to much sense in those wee hours when I am up in the middle of the night.

mrs boo radley said...

Would you look at your cute little self?!

Katie said...

SHANNON, YOU LOOK ADORABLE!!!! I am so happy you posted a baby bump picture. :o) I think it is a boy! (But I've always been 100% wrong...seriously...haha) You look great, and I hope you feel great, too. I'm saying a little prayer RIGHT NOW for that sweet baby!

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Congrats Shannon! I didn't know you all were expecting. How wonderful!

Many Blessings and Happy Fall!
~Melissa :)

duchess said...

So adorable - both Zach & your baby bump.

Everyday Becky said...

You are so cute! I will be celebrating with you when you find out on the 14th. Can't wait to read girl or boy! : )

Have a happy week.

Katie said...

Oh, I meant to say...one of my friends had a gender reveal party, and here is what they did....they had the doctor seal up the gender in an envelope so THEY THEMSELVES didn't know the gender...they took the envelope to the baker, who baked a cake that was colored blue (pink for a girl, obviously, if it had been a girl), and then iced it so they couldn't see the cake. Then at the party when they sliced it, everyone got to see all at the same time, including the couple. I think that's a fun way to do it, with family and friends. If you and your husband wanted to find out BEFORE all your friends, the baker could even bake you a little cupcake and do the same. Just thought it was worth mentioning! :o) I'm SO EXCITED for y'all...have I already said that?!?! ;o)

I used a doppler at home too, from about 9 weeks till I felt him moving all the time around 16 -- it was such a good feeling to be able to check on him whenever I wanted. :) That is the greatest sound ever!!

Amber said...

How exciting! How are those girl names coming? You're so cute with your little bump. What a blessed season waiting on your little one!

~Ashlea~ said...

I'm so jealous!! I am exactly 2 weeks ahead of you and my Dr wouldn't schedule an ultrasound until Oct 15th!

It's so exciting! I hope you get the news you want. We already have a boy, and I love everything about him! So another boy would be fine, but a girl would be great too!

Can't wait!!!
