Little projects :)

Yesterday I decided we needed some football stuff for the baby and I looked online for Texas and Utes football clothing and I just think it's way to expensive for something he will grow out of so quickly. I might still get a few things I have found but for now I went to walmart and got these white onezies on sale :) and found a little bit of orange and red fabric and ta da Baby has football clothes :) Now I just need some pants haha.

I was going to put chappell on the back of the texas ones too but after doing one in red with those teeny tiny letters I decided against it :) Ben says it needs a number on the back so I guess we will have to pick on and then I can add it.

Ben's still hard at work. He is so busy running two stores that I feel like he's never home. I wish I had a job to keep me busy but instead I am a stay at home wifey that has done a lot of scrapbooking and blanket making. I am now just over 27 weeks! 90 more days left until the due date :) I had my glucose test next wednesday and I am not excited for it at all. They gave me the little drink at my last appointment and told me to drink it an hour before my appointment and it looks really yucky. Next Saturday (nov 6th) I have a baby shower in Fillmore and I am so so so stinkin excited. I love getting little baby stuff :) It's all just so cute.

25 weeks.

25 weeks down 105 days to go! He's getting bigger and stronger everyday. Today I had the laptop barely resting on my lap and he kicked it sooooooooooooooo hard that it fell on the floor. If his kicks are this strong already I am in for some painful kicks & punches :) He is now around 13.4 inches to 14.5 inches long and weighs around 2 pounds :) If he takes after his dad height he's probably 13.4 inches but he sure is tough. We go back to the doctor on November 3rd and thats about it.

Good news!

Thumper :)

Well good news! Thumper is getting better. He has had great big swollen cheeks and we read online that he could have an abscess infection and if we didn't get it fixed he would die :( So we took him to the vet today and yep he has an abscess. It's not like the kind we get. It started in his ear and spread so the poor little guy was so swollen. It was sad to see. Anyways the doctor sedated him and cut open his ear and cleaned it all out. We have to give him shots in the muscle every night for a few days so he can get his antibiotic. I know if sounds silly to take a turtle to the vet but he's my little baby! I have become so attached to both of our turtles that we gave in. The picture is right after we picked him up. He's still pretty dazed so thats why his eye is closed. He's already doing much better and tomorrow morning we can put him back in his tank.


As for our baby boy :) He is growing right on track and it is absolutely fantastic. When he starts kicking me I can lay on my back and we watch my stomach move. It's amazing. I've officially gained 12 pounds and I'm still a little depressed about that but the doctor says it is healthy that I am. They seemed a little worried I was a few pounds under normal last time I got weighed but now I am right on track! Today when we went to my 24 Week appointment the doctor got the heart rate monitor and put it on my stomach and the baby kinda kicked at it. (he doesn't like cold) and the doctor was like oh active little guy :). He's so cute already. We can't wait for him to come! I'm almost officially at the 3rd trimester! Woot Woot!!!

I'm a tv junkie now days.

Can I just tell you all how much I love TV lately?! Ben gets home from work and usually his knees are killing him and I'm super lazy after 5 p.m. haha so our nightly thing has been to eat dinner and watch tv together. It's lame and not productive but I love it. Last night was awesome. I always hated The Office but Comedy night on NBC is just to funny to pass up. We love Community, The Office, and Outsourced. It's definitely stupid humor but if you aren't watching you should be.


I'm getting my house all decorated for Halloween/Fall time and I love it. It will be cute :) We are both getting more and more excited for Baby Chappell to come. My mom got Ben some newborn Texas Longhorn stuff and He LOVES it. It's super cute but so tiny! The little booties aren't going to fit him for very long but he can wear it home from the hospital :) Also, I finally went in and did some baby registry stuff. My lovely sister in law and my family are doing baby showers in November so I needed to start deciding on what we need. We weren't at the store for very long but we did get a free goody bag for going in. :)

Well sorry my posts aren't very exciting. Our lives are pretty much the same right now but it's crazy to think how much it's going to change next year.

OHHHH That reminds me.... I do have something else to say :)

I am so so so grateful for the blessings of paying our tithing. This last paycheck we decided it was more important to get caught on up tithing then anything. So once we mailed off our huge insurance premium check we wrote out a tithing slip and just trusted in the Lord that he would provide us a way to pay the rest of our bills. Well last night we officially decided to sell our old beat up 4x4 truck. Ben put it on facebook around 6 p.m. and we had so many offers on it right away. We thought it would be a stretch to get $600 for it and we ended up selling it for $700. I can not even describe how grateful I am. I'm so glad we had the faith to trust in the Lord. He knows best. :)
