Here we are, moving right along into week 17! Here is a little peek as to what Baby Schinde is up to this week:
Baby's now the size of an onion! Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.
I have heard that around this time you may be able to start feeling the baby move. I am still patiently awaiting that moment ;) I have a had a few feelings that I was unsure about...but I am waiting for that moment when I just know! Otherwise, other than feeling a little chubby and not fitting into most of my clothes, I feel great!
Carl and I found a crib that we liked and made the purchase this past week. Carl already has it set up in the nursery. Carl has also been busy at work on painting the chair-railing he put up. Now we are awaiting to find out what color we will be painting the rest of the wall....pink or blue?? My very talented hubby is also beginning to work on a beautiful shevling unit that will also house a changing table. He is so talented and I can't wait to see the finished project! Hopefully our baby will inherit Carl's creative woodworking abilities! Speaking of, Carl recently made a dollhouse bookcase for his brother's little girl who will be arriving this November. I have posted a picture so you can all see :)

Although dreary and rainy, we still made the best of the weekend. On Friday I (and carl for a little while) went and baby-sat Joshua while Adam And Jessica went to their ultrasound to find out the sex of their second child. They are having a boy who will be arriving about 3 weeks before baby schinde! We are so excited for them! Saturday was a pretty lazy day for baby schinde and me...Carl of course was hard at work in the baby's room. Saturday night we went over to Lance's to have dinner with he and michelle and watched the aggies get their butts kicked:( Today Carl and I went to church and then went and had lunch with my good friend Stacy. We plan on spending the rest of this rainy day watching some football and relaxing :)
Well we hope everyone has a blesssed week! thanks for reading our blog this week. I have posted a pic of the preggo belly for the beginning of week 17! We will update again soon!
