Here we are at the end of week 23...
Thursday Kyle and I had a day dedicated to Kyleigh! It started with my doctors appointment early yesterday morning. Everything went well. Kyleigh's heart beat was a steady 150 bpm. I always love it when I get to hear her little heart beat. We'll go back in another 4 weeks to do a glucose test, and regular check up.
We also went to Target and Babies R Us to register. Kyle loves to use the gun when registering. We still have plans to do the Hospital tour and pre-register, and order to crib and dresser within the next few days.
We've decided to repaint her room as well. We like the room being two toned, but the pink looks purple at night time. We've decided it's gonna be too hard to find just the right color pink, so we are going to repaint the top half and have her room be brown on the bottom, and white on the top. Kyle still plans to put up a chair rail to seperate the colors. We can't wait to get everything completely painted, furniture moved in, and to hold our precious baby girl in our arms!

Last night I had one of those crazy dreams... I hear you have when your pregnant. I've had a few already but I thought this one was worth sharing. I dreamed that I had gone into labor, and we delievered a beautiful baby girl. At 20 weeks she was full grown and perfectly healthy. She had the most georgous blue eyes, and lots of brown hair. The doctors took one quick look at her and said she looked great, but they were gonna have to put her back in and we'd have to wait until December to see her again. After all, she's not due till December.:) Of course I was upset that we had to put her back in, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do for those sweet little ones you love:)
Other exciting news, we have decided on a spelling of her name. We will spell her name, KYLEIGH RAE KUEPKER. We are naming her after her daddy, and her great grandpa, Ray Etheridge. I can't wait for Kyleigh to learn more about the men she is named after.
We got her bedding in the mail today! The sheets are in the wash already!:) We went to Home Depot to buy PINK paint, but just couldn't decide on the right color pink. We are gonna go back later with a better sample. It was a little bit of a stressful event. haha. We have decided to get the crib and changing table that will convert later on. The bed becomes a full size bed!! We hope to order her crib and changing table/dresser later this month.

Next big purchase, baby furniture... We found a set we really liked at Posh Mommy and Baby too- a boutique off 72.... but we really just couldn't fathom putting that much money into a baby bed and changing table We decided to continue looking. Last week Kyleigh Rae got her first piece of mail from her grandpa in Kansas City, he sent us a few magazine pages with baby bedding, and go figure, it was the exact set we had picked out at Posh Mommy- but half the price! We're still debating but I'm totally sold on it! Yes, it is a little bit more than your basic crib and changing table that you would find at Target- BUT this crib converts to a day bed, toddler bed, and even a twin size bed. When it converts you can't even tell it was once a crib! It's very modern and I LOVE IT!! I think the initial investment will be worth it in the long run!

I just recently joined the Publix's baby club. I received my membership in the mail today. It was so excited to rummage through all the goodies- A huge book full of great information, and lots of coupons. The best part about being a member of the Publix's baby club... it's completely free... and they send you coupons from time to time!
I broke down earlier today and painted the bottom half of the baby's room. I have been wanting to do it ever since we bought the paint. (Kyle and I found Behr paint on sale the other day so we picked up a gallon of brown to paint the bottom half of the room. We'll get the top color once we find out if we are having a boy or girl.) I've been wanting to do it for weeks but was concerned about the fumes. After talking to many of you, I decided it would be ok as long as the room was well ventilated, and only did a little at a time. I am very pleased with the results. I'll post pictures once I get the room cleaned up a little bit. It's been our catch all room since we moved in, but I'm gonna have to kick it into gear and get it ready for baby!
