Stroller and Carseat

Per the request of a couple of friends, here is the stroller and carseat that we got for Baby McKelvey!

This is the BOB Revolution stroller. Before I decided on a stroller and carseat, I read literally hundreds of reviews about every stroller and carseat that is available. For several reasons, these are my favorites and I cannot wait to put them to good use!! Oh, and when we went to Chicago, we probably saw 15 BOB strollers around the city! I hope that means I will like it as much as everyone else!! We also got the Combi umbrella stroller, I hear that it is awesome as well!

29 Weeks!!

Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day

2 YEARS :)

On June 30, Grant and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary :) I can truly say that they have been two of the most wonderful years of our lives, and not to be cheesy but we fall more and more in love each day! If you know both of us, you know that we are both very stubborn and passionate people to say the without the Lord being the absolute center of our relationship, before marriage and to this day, we would be no where near the people we have become and would not at all have a very strong marriage. I know that we have so far to go, but I feel as though we are on the right track!!
This picture wasn't taken on the actual day we got married, I don't have any of the professional ones on my computer, but this is a picture that a good friend of ours, David Higginbotham, took a couple of months later. On the day we got married, we decided to wait until after the ceremony to see each other so needless to say we didn't get as many pictures of the two of us as we would have liked. Thats why we had more taken!

This WAS taken the day we got married :)

The night before we got married, another one of David's pictures...not sure what we are laughing about!

Baby Shower!!!

Last Friday night 9 of my best friends threw me a baby shower in Birmingham. It could not have been more perfect!! They did such a wonderful job on the food, decorating, and making sure everyone had a good time! I had so, so much fun!! I got to see some people that I haven't seen in a while so that made it all the more special.
One of the most wonderful people in the world, Mollie, drove from Atlanta to come see me. We cheered together in college and have remained the best of friends. I couldn't have gotten through it without her, really!! Unfortunately, she had to leave before I could get a picture with her :(. This was the first time I had seen her since my wedding, which she drove all the way from Charleston for!!! Wow!!
Also, two other of my best friends from high school drove in to see me as well, Katie Hill (from North Carolina!) and Rachel McAbee (also from Atlanta). I am so blessed with amazing friends!!
All of the hostesses, minus Nichla! :) Don't I have the most beautiful friends!!? I realize my dress is a tad short...I honestly didn't notice it was THAT short until I looked at all the pictures. This is actually not a maternity dress, so when I put a belt with it, it had a tendency to ride up a bit!! :) Haha, oh well!!

I thought these were soo neat and cute!! I am so going to use this idea!!

AMAZING food!!!

An attempt of a group picture...some people had already gone so unfortunately I didn't get everyone :(

28 Weeks!

A quick update from my last Dr.'s visit: Well, besides everything with the baby looking right on target, it's kind of funny because he put me on a "low-carb" diet! He told me I was gaining too much weight! I had gained 10 pounds in between 2 visits and he doesn't want that trend to keep going...this is all kind of ironic considering that his partner had been telling me in the beginning that I wasn't gaining Enough weight and had me drinking milkshakes, etc, like crazy! Haha, so to all of you who might not gain the correct amount of weight in the beginning...just wait, it will come!!! :) Oh, and we chose not to do the 4-D pictures...we want to be totally surprised when we see his sweet face!!
By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.


Me, Lizzie, Grant, my mom, my granddad and my aunt Cindy all went to Chicago last week for the National Plastics Convention and had a blast! Lizzie and I pretty much shopped all day along with some sight-seeing here and there. We had sooo much fun! The food, the city, the atmosphere, the shopping, everything was awesome!! It is my new favorite city! I can’t wait to go back!!

At the was fun but Atlanta's or Chattanooga's is much better!!
