Gifts for Baby.

Our baby has managed to rack up on gifts already, even in vitro. The shopaholic and lover of all things baby that I am, I could not be more pleased that our family & friends have been excited enough to give gifts to our little one. I have, of course, gotten a bunch of pregnancy books, which I am in the process of reading now.

Need an extra copy of What to
Expect When You're Expecting, anyone?

Here are a few other gifts Baby Klahn has gotten:

love these story books!

can't wait to see our little one sporting this!

holiday baking.

Tonight, my mom & I had some good ole fashioned bonding time baking. We made lots of good stuff: classic chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, chocolate fudge, and, last but not least, my hubby's favorite - snickerdoodles - from scratch, thankyouverymuch.

We had a great time, made lots of yummy things, and felt all Christmas-y!! Now to share with my coworkers and enjoy the fruits of our labor!! YUM!

the first trimester life.

SO much going on lately - the holidays, fun baby stuff, and just our regular life! So why, you ask, can't I find time in all this madness to blog?

Let me set the scene for you. My days consist of:

1. Sleep as late as possible in order to get to work.
2. Work.
3. Go to whatever after-work commitments I have (church choir, errands, occasionally
something with friends...)
4. Come home.
5. Fall asleep on couch until hubby prods me to bed.

And repeat.

I must be that pregnant girl and report that the ONLY "morning sickness" I've really had is the two migraines I have gotten. Note to fellow migraine getters: you can't take your migraine meds while pregnant.

Other than that, I've had pretty fabulous luck. I've had most other symptoms, not the least of which is being exhausted ALL.THE.TIME.

I hear this fades. And since I am only two weeks away from my second trimester {wow! already??} I am looking forward to gaining some energy back.

I hope everyone has been having a fabulous December and is looking forward to a Merry Christmas!
