This Post Has a Little Bit of Everything {Giveaway CLOSED}

by Courtney on June 27, 2013

Absolutely amazing. There’s no other way to describe it.

IMG_2496IMG_2499

Yesterday afternoon, we had our final ultrasound and weekly prenatal appointment. I was so excited for it ALL day but was curious to see whether or not Baby Tooth would even cooperate on the ultrasound. Well, as you can see, he certainly cooperated. Those cheeks! Those lips!

Everything went great at the appointment, and here’s a few fun facts:

  • Baby Tooth is in the 50th percentile for weight and is “guesstimated” to be about 6lbs 14oz right now – if he goes to 40 weeks, that would put him anywhere between high 7′s and low 8lbs.
  • He’s still head down, but face up (I think part of the reason we got such good shots of him!). The doc said they prefer face down, but she didn’t seem worried about it at all.
  • He has hair! The tech showed us the fuzzy part that was basically “floating in the fluid,” and she also informed us that he has “old man hair” – aka, not much on top, but a lot more around the rim of the head. This made both of us laugh, and I later found out after talking to my mom that both me and my brother had this when we were born. Who knew?!
  • He’s quite scrunched up in there – the ultrasound showed at one point that he had one hand above his head, and his other hand was holding on to his little foot that was curled up into his body. It was adorable. And crazy. He also stuck his tongue out at us numerous times…little stinker. ;)
  • I’m not dilated at all yet, but apparently my cervix is quite thin and he is very low…I’ll take that as a good sign!

So after our appointment yesterday, I’m pretty sure the two of us were just on Cloud 9. Not that we weren’t excited before, but after seeing such a “real” shot of him, we’re just so anxious and ready to finally meet him. We left the appointment and headed down the street to one of our favorite sub places (DiBella’s) to get some dinner.

IMG_2498

The subs at DiBella’s are enormous, and totally delicious. Jay and I decided to go halvsies on a couple since we couldn’t decide between the two (Chicken Philly and Chicken BLT) and believe it or not, we each got a small sub. Yes, they’re smalls. I’m pretty sure their larges could feed a small army.

I was originally thinking I might be able to con him into going to see a movie afterward, but we both decided we had stuff to do at home and are saving the movie for the weekend. So we trekked it back home, and were greeted with a doorstep full of goodies!

A box of “mystery” flavors from Chobani. SO excited to dig in and try to figure out what the flavors are…

IMG_0464

My new lens for my camera! Our friends Brook and Andrea have this lens and they take absolutely beautiful photos of their little ones. It’s quite a bit different from the lenses I currently have, so I think it might take some getting used to.

IMG_0459

But I’ll just keep practicing with one of my favorite subjects for right now. ;)

IMG_0465

Shortly after getting home, I suddenly found myself with a little extra energy, so I decided to take advantage and hit the treadmill for a walk.

IMG_2511

You guys like my new kicks? I just got them a little over a week ago from my friends at Reebok and I’m already loving them.

IMG_0457

They’re the Reebok ONE Series Cushion, and they actually aren’t even available until July 1st. But for those of you who may be in the market for some new shoes soon, here’s a little info for ya…

The shoe is built in 3 zones that address the specific needs of your foot as it moves through the gait cycle: heel strike, midstance, and toe-off.  The different zones have corresponding densities in the midsole of the shoe and there are different materials in the upper.  For example, you need more rigid, structured support around your heel but you need more breathable, flexible material in the forefoot.  

The Reebok ONE Series Cushion is a shoe built for neutral runners.  This means people who do not over-pronate.

For those people who do over-pronate and need a little more stability, we have the Reebok ONE Series Guide.  The Guide is built the same way as the Cushion except for the fact that the Guide has a denser foam in the medial side of the midsole (under the arch of your feet) to help support the foot and help correct mild overpronation.

You can find them at Reebok.com.

Pretty snazzy, right? Although I still think my favorite shoe from Reebok is the Real Flex Transitions, these are definitely a close second. Light, comfy, and cute, to boot!

So after I finished up my walk, I headed back upstairs, only to be greeted by my crazy little furball doing acrobatics on the stairs.

IMG_2504

Little guy cracked me right up.

And now, since this post is thoroughly ALL over the place, I figured why not end it on another little bit of a tangent…with a giveaway!

I’ve recently been the lucky recipient of quite a few “Love Drops” from Love Grown Foods, and I’m having a hard time keeping up. So I figured, rather than hoard all the goodies for myself, I’m gonna give some away a box of ALL FIVE FLAVORS to a lucky STSL reader. :)

IMG_0469

To enter for a chance to win the box of “Love,” simply leave a comment on this post about something positive, nice, and fun. We all can always use a little extra positivity in our day anyways, right? Let’s spread some love of our own today! <–cheeseball alert, I know ;)

I’ve been really stressed lately, and my boyfriend recently surprised me with flowers. But it was the way he surprised me that was so cute. I walked into our bedroom after work and while he’s lying on the bed he says to me “can you get me some socks?” Annoyed that I had to get up and get HIM socks, I opened the drawer and starting at me was a bouquet for flowers. His smile was so cute. Love him.

On another note, my son was born “sunny side up” (face up). The downside to that position is you tend to get back labor with it. Being part of a family of women who have back labor anyway, I had quite a bit of pain in my back when he was born. For the sake of your back, I’m hoping he turns for you before the big day!

I think I’m going to look for a place that does it for our next baby if I end up having the same doctor. Hunter has old man hair too – it cracks me up. We call it his little mullet. :) He’s starting to get more hair up top, but he still has quite a bit more near the bottom. So so so excited for you!

those pictures are so cute! I love how he is holding his little face like “life is so tough, man.” My postivity are my non-scale victories! This week I actually wanted to work out everyday rather than feeling pressured to do so or like I was just dragging myself to do it because I knew I should. Yesterday was my off day and I intended to really take the day off by being a couch potato. Just as I laid down and get settled in with Mad Men I realized I’d rather go outside and do some yoga in the backyard. Because really, if you’re not doing downdog in your backyard, then you’re just not a good neighbor.

My positive thing? Spending a weekend at home, alone, with my husband. We just bought a house, moved and have had company so many weekends lately. Our jobs don’t really allow us to take a babymoon, so this is as close as it gets, and I couldn’t be more excited for the time with my guy.

And I DO like the shoes. I must confess I am a Nike/Asics girl from way back. My hubby used to forbid me to buy anything Reebok (he’s been devoted to Nike for like forever!). But since reading your blog I have snuck a few workout pieces into the closet :-) and I am seriously considering those shoes. The colors and style are great – fitness with a fashion forward flair – a good combination in my book!

Have a great end of the week! Jessica

I work at a baby store, and two parents came in today with their newborn (I’m talking less than a week old!). They looked tired and beat, and were wandering around the store aimlessly. I asked them if they needed help (they did) and ended up answering all their questions about cloth diapers, getting them a new stroller, and pointing them to other stores that could help them out. The mom started to tear up, and I asked her if everything was alright. She said “We’re so new at this, and you’ve really gone out of your way to help answer our questions, thank you so much.” Her gratitude really touched me.

I had a great long chat with a teen that I work with who is in foster care. It was a positive conversation, nice to see him smile, and fun to eat lunch together instead of just sit in the office! Happy Thursday!!

I love my chiropractor, we just click and he gets me without me having to SAY anything. It’s crazy. He pushes me to get back into my field and pursue my dreams, while also trying to make sure I’m taking care of myself. Just yesterday he reminded me I need to find some motivation to keep working towards my dreams and that I need to get some love in my life. It made me laugh but also brought a huge smile to my face. :)

I have that same lens and i LOVE it! I took a class one Sunday afternoon to be able to take my camera off auto and I’ve been able to take some great shots with it…only downside is that it doesn’t zoom in or out so you have to move to get closer or further from things which can be tough depending where you are.
