The bedding we chose is Pink Paisley by babybedding.com. Of course that is something else I still need to order but I'm hoping to place that order this weekend. Stay tuned to final pictures of the nursery. I hope it comes out as well as Payten's although we are not doing any crazy walls this time. :-) Happy Thursday everyone!!

Now I will be seeing the doctor every two weeks until 34 weeks, and then I will go weekly from there on. Right now my c-section is still scheduled for October 16th but as time gets near we will know more. Everything is always subject to change.
We had our family/maternity session with Amy this past weekend and it went awesome! Amy is amazing!! I have posted the link to her blog of some of the shots. I absoutely love them! How am I going to choose?
Hope everyone is doing well. Here is an updateon Baby Hogan #2's progress... :-)
28 weeks - All About Baby
Your unborn baby's survival rate outside the womb increases as each week passes. If he didn't open his eyes last week, chances are he'll take his first peek this week. Your baby-to-be's skeleton and muscles are maturing quickly. This week he can turn his head from side to side.
Most of the lanugo has disappeared at this point and your baby may have a full head of hair by now.
How Big Is Baby?
Your Baby weighs in at around two pounds, seven ounces and stretches to 10 inches (crown to rump).

Week 26 - All About Baby
This week your baby-to-be opens her eyes for the first time. She'll open and shut her eyes as she gets used to her new ability. Your little one is still on the small side. Her body may look fully formed on the outside, but inside there's fine-tuning taking place, including her lungs and her brain. Your unborn baby still has some growing to do!
How Big Is Baby?
This week your baby's weight hovers around two pounds and her length reaches about nine inches (crown to rump).
Week 27 - All About Baby
Your baby's lungs and brain are beginning to mature. Although he'd have a good chance of survival if he were born now, he could use a few more weeks of growing. Added layers of fat are continuing to form. These layers will help your baby regulate his temperature once outside the womb and help keep him warm.
Remember to count your fetal movements. Every fetus has its most active times (and often it's late at night when you are trying to catch a few zzzzs!). During his active periods, your baby should move 10 times an hour. Choose an hour, and mark each movement on a piece of paper. If your baby hasn't moved 10 times, drink some juice and count again for another hour. You should call your doctor if the baby hasn't moved at least ten times during any two-hour stretch.
How Big Is Baby?
Your little one weights just over two pounds now and stretches out to a little over nine and one-half inches (crown to rump).
This week's belly pic... it's growing by the minute!

Shower curtain is from Pottery Barn Kids (Garden Critter Collection). New counter top, faucets, and mirror from Lowes. I absolutely love the mirror. We also need to purchase hardware for the cabinets. But it's coming along!
We had a pretty uneventful weekend which was nice for once. We worked on a few projects around the house on Saturday. Saturday night Sean worked so Payten and I had a girls night. Sunday we headed to the Millenia mall to have Payten's pictures taken along with dress shopping for me. After hours of shopping, no luck with a dress but I did pick up a cute few tops. Maternity clothes are just not flattering. :-( Hope everyone had a great weekend!

All About Baby
Your baby-to-be's lungs are developing rapidly, although she'd probably need a little help breathing if she were born at this point. Her respiratory system continues to develop, her nostrils are open, and she can breathe—but she won't take her first breath of air until delivery day. Her reproductive organs are formed (in boys, the testes have descended). Her skin is translucent and wrinkled, and he can hear your stomach when it gurgles nd your voice when you sing. Your baby is becoming more aware of how she can move—she's wiggling her fingers and toes!
How Big Is Baby?
Your baby has grown to about one pound, eight ounces and she's nearly nine inches long (crown to rump).
