I thought I would include the photo of our stroller that was purchased at almost half off...ours is red. It has an attachment for an infant carrier and is a lightweight model called the Micralite Fastfold Stroller. The only issue is that it does not have a cup holder, but we've already found a holder that we can attach to it, so problem solved!

Yesterday was my birthday and I asked for a slice of Red Velvet Cake. Unfortunately, the restaurant that Nathan was going to get it from hadn't made any yet, so they made Nathan purchase the whole cake. It is giant and yummy! There is enough for all of you to come over and have a slice.

Doreen is so giddy
Over Itty Bitty Witte!
But she has to wait for fall
To receive the telephone call.
That the baby has been born
On that precious eve or morn.
But wait! Babe's not so itty.
It's bigger than a kitty!
E'en though the baby is young
I hear she sticks out her tongue.
And wails come out of Itty Bitty
That's heard throughout the city!
But it's music to your ears
As you hold her comes the tears.
You love that Itty Bitty
Through all the knitty-gritty!

The nurse weighed me when I first came in and I found out that I lost a pound in my first trimester instead of gaining any. Does this mean that since I'm allowed to gain 30 lbs. over the pregnancy that now I'm allowed to gain 31 lbs.? I think so. A little side note...I told Nathan that he had to lose the amount of weight that I gain along the pregnancy (it's only fair, we need to keep the world in balance), but now I told him that he's allowed to gain a pound. He seemed to like that idea and told me that maybe he would, in fact, finish my hamburger.

Around Week 6 Nathan and I met Ed and Doreen at Kelsey's for dinner. It was difficult to get all of us together that weekend because they had so much to do. Nathan and I decided that we would order our drinks first and then he would hand the onesie I made and wrapped up to mom. I had cross-stitched "little bitty witte" in orange onto a white onesie. He handed it to her and she was really confused about what it was. Then, when she finally opened it, she started crying and said to Ed that we were having a baby and she hugged Nathan and me through the tears. I started crying to, but she started it.
I had ordered a hydrangea plant to be delivered to my mother while she was home for lunch today that had a card that read "congratulations, we're expecting!” I got the call from her about a half an hour ago and I couldn't understand her because she was crying so much from joy. It was really touching and she's really excited about the pregnancy. Dad called while I was still on the phone with her, so I transferred over to him and he was really excited too. He said that when mom called him he was really worried because she was crying and he couldn't understand what she was saying. He said that he thought the animals got out and that something bad had happened until he was able to piece together "Robin...baby!" He said he has never seen her like that before and that she is so excited, he is too. They are going to try and come up this spring to see us.
Nathan and I are now 12 weeks pregnant and very excited about the upcoming birth around October 22nd. We are attempting to take photos of the pregnancy every few weeks or so to show the progress and you can see Week 10 and Week 12 on this post.
