Simon Thomas

I know it has been a while since I posted anything, but all is well. We are doing great! Kelly and I went for a sonogram November 7 and learned that we will be welcoming a BOY in late February early March!!!! So, if you haven’t already caught the name in the post title, our son will be named Simon Thomas Reynolds! (Thomas is Kelly’s middle name and is actually a name used on both sides of our family.) Everyone seemed to think it was going to be a girl, including Kelly, but there was no doubt about the gender of this little one! He wasn’t bashful at all! (Guess he’s already taking after his Daddy!) The doctor said based upon his size, etc. my due date could be anywhere from Feb. 27 to Mar. 7. Other than a rotten sinus bug I am still trying to get over, I have felt good. Simon is really moving a lot lately, mainly at night. I have been playing Jesus Loves Me for him at bedtime each night from this little wind-up lamb that his Gran Gran (Kelly’s Mom) gave him. Last night, he was kicking so hard and so frequently that the little lamb was dancing around on top of my stomach! I love feeling him move. We have gradually started working on the nursery. The crib is on back-order until the end of Dec. I am having a hard time finding bedding that I like. Well, I take that back, I have found some really cute crib bedding but I’m not paying the astronomical price for it! So, if anyone out there knows of any websites or stores that sell affordable crib sets please share them with me!! We are going back to the doctor in just a couple of weeks for our 3-D sonogram. Hopefully, we’ll get some good shots and I can post one or two next time. Until then, thanks for your thoughts and prayers and have a very Happy Thanksgiving! I know I personally have much to be thankful for!

How exciting to have a baby boy! Love the name! I like the bedding from www.landofnod.com and www.potterybarnkids.com. Target also has some cute stuff. It can get expensive, though - I found some I liked on www.poshtots.com but it was $600!! Needless to say we didn't get that! Happy shopping!

I had the same prob with bedding, but I found this lady from Penny Sansing that made ours. It was $100!!! I can't find her website, but I can try to get in touch with Penny. Really, don't spend too much on it. It just becomes a hazardous dumping zone. Besides, we took the cutest part (bumper pad) out when he could pull up because he was trying to climb out. I'm so excited for you guys!
