A Few Lovely Things...

8weeks 1day! :D 
 I have a few lovely things to share

Are these not adorable! Size 1  baby bowling shoes! 
My family owns and operates Bowling Centers in our area
My great grandfather started the bowling Centers many years ago, which now 
my father owns and runs, I work for the family business and love it very much
So when my Dad left these little shoes on my desk I couldn't help but 
smile and cry! I am So lucky to have such a loving wonderful dad, and family. 

Meet Harvard the  Bear :) 
Scott brought him home for me along with a few other goodies after our 
heartbeat ultrasound on Friday
He named this bear Harvard and was excited to buy the baby his/her First Teddy! 

Prizes from Scott after our HB US
Harvard, a lotto ticket, a new bling phone case, pepper spray to fight off bad guys
and a planner to write all my appointments in! 
He is so Sweet :D 

I had to. 
I actually ordered this the day before our ultrasound, ya I know, crazy. 
But I thought it would take 7-10 days to get here
so I would be 9+ weeks before I got to use it! 
It arrived yesterday!
8 weeks on the dot
I of course had to try it just to see if I could find it
Online it says 8 weeks and up but if you are bigger you might not find it till
10+ weeks. So I didnt really expect to find anything. 
but I did. 
The first time I just found my HB and the whoosing sound 
but on the second try I picked up the Heartbeat
but only for about a minute then I moved just a little and lost it
but I was satisfied and didn't want to continue bothering baby
so I put it up. I tried this morning and again found it briefly but not long and steady
So i decided I will wait till next Saturday and try again :) 

I snapped a quick picture which is probably why I lost it yesterday
Well off to get ready for Church! Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Tooooo much cuteness!!
    Your Dad is so excited, I had to hold him off from giving you the shoes the first day that you told us!
    Scott...what can I say, is he not the cutest Husband in the World? I LOVE the random array of gifts!!
    The doppler? Ohhhhh if they only had those when I carried you!!!! AMAZING!
    Love you,
    Momma ; ))))))))))

  2. Love those little shoes!!! I ordered a doppler too, and ended up returning it without husband said I was crazy enough with the pregnancy :) haha!

    1. Thank You! :D O Man! How did you not open it?! you have some great will power! I was opening the box walking up from the mailbox! haha! I was nervous I wouldnt be able to work it! but It's pretty cool and I think it will help a lot for those 4 week apart appointments! lol

  3. Hey :)I am a new follower. Congrats on your pregnancy, and that beautiful heartbeat! I know how scary it is waiting to find out if there is one. Now you have a doppler, and can listen whenever you want, isn't it amazing?? Trust me, it'll be your best friend throughout your pregnancy. I bought one too, and I don't regret it for a second. It's amazing the instant relief the sound of your little ones heart brings. Can't wait to follow you on your journey!

    1. Hi! & Thank You for following! I am excited to have you! Thank you for the congrats! The doppler so far is best friend status! I love it! but am trying not to over use it! haha! I just got it Saturday ~ when I woke up this morning it was the first thing I thought about but I decided to wait until after work, It is still tough to get a steady reading and I think it's because I am only 8w2d. So hopefully by the weekend I will get it! :D

  4. Aww I love the little shoes!! So freakin cute!

  5. Thos bowling shoes are ADORABLE!! I can't even take it! What a sentimental gift...and sweet Dad you have!
    The gifts from your husband are so thoughtful!
    Such a happy post!
    I'm glad you have the doppler. I'm pretty sure I'd b carrying it with me everywhere I go :)

    Tons of love, pretty lady!!


  6. Omgosh that was so sweet of your dad!! Those shoes are adorable! I loved having my definitely kept me sane--well, as sane as possible lol! Happy 8 weeks!!

    1. Thank You! I agree with the doppler keeping me sane! It is a relief when I find that tiny heartbeat even if it is just for a few quick seconds! I am hoping by the end of this week or next I will get a steady reading
