Crib and baby bedding

Last weekend, Clint put together Ryan's crib. I love it!

We decided to go ahead and put the bedding on it too, just to complete the picture. My mom bought the bedding set for us from Babies R Us... both Clint and I love it very much! It looks a little pink in this picture... it's actually purple.
We decided not to paint the walls. I like the color that they are, and I think they look really good with the color of the crib and the bedding. We have some touch up areas to work on and I'm trying to decide if I want to add a border or something else to snaz it up. 
There are really only a few baby items in her room, but I just love walking in there and knowing that in a few months, I'll have a sweet baby in the nursery!!
Blessed beyond belief,

Sweet Face

I know all I post about is baby, baby, baby. Mostly, I use this blog as a way to update my family on what's going on with me - and right now it's all baby!!

Clint & I had a 3D/4D ultrasound yesterday... it was AMAZING!!! I'm 23 weeks today. Miss Ryan kept me up last night wiggling all around! I think it was 2 a.m. before I actually fell asleep. I'm sure there's only more to come :)

Here she is sucking her thumb
Snuggled up

Here's a yawn

It was such an amazing experience!! We got to take a DVD home, and I'm sure that's all I'll be watching for awhile!

Our baby's name

We actually decided on one name for our baby - boy or girl - back when we first found out we were expecting. Clint and I both really like "traditional boy" names for girls. (Our dog is named Stevie.... and she's a girl). 
Her name will be.....
Ryan Elizabeth

Elizabeth is my middle name, and my mom's middle name as well.  We wanted to pair a "girly" middle name with her first name. I think it flows perfectly, and hopefully it will fit her well too!

Side note - before my Grandmother passed away, Clint and I told her that if baby is a girl, we plan to name her Ryan Elizabeth.  My grandmother's response was "Oh... I don't really like that. Everyone will pronounce it wrong... like Ri-an since we live in Texas." My grandmother never ceased to speak her mind - turns out, she didn't like my name when my parents picked it out!! : )

I'm addicted....

I don't know what it is about this place....

I'm craving it SO MUCH!! I eat the #5 - chicken fried steak with double mashed potatoes at least twice a week! Healthy right?? Maybe that's why I've been able to put on 3 POUNDS in one week. I need to slow down a little!
I never really ate at Grandy's before I was pregnant - maybe once or twice a year - now I gotta have it!! :)
I'm 21 weeks as of yesterday and feeling good! I'm finding that baby Moore has a pretty regular wake-movement cycle each day. Typically she moves between 9:30-10:30 a.m., around noon - 1p.m. and then MAJOR movement from 9:15 - 10 p.m. each night. Nighttime is definitely the time she is doing major belly-surfing! ;) I can see my belly move and Monday night, Clint felt our baby for the first time. I wish I could have captured the grin on his face... he was beaming, and I of course, was crying!
Loving this special time!
