This morning Heather offered to give Travis a haircut. Much to both of our delight we accepted!

The baby still likes to keep it's hands up by it's face but you can see it's chunky cheeks and squished nose! The tech said it looked more like Travis' nose....which is good because I have a huge bump in mine that I hate!
This is the baby's face frontal view. One hand is in a fist by its eye and the blob of black over the other eye is a moving hand. you can see it's forehead, nose, cheek, and mouth.
This picture shows the eye, forehead, nose, mouth and arm.
The tech said that the current estimate is the baby weighs 5lbs 4 oz. However, it could be off a pound either way. I still have 8 weeks to GO! Let's hope it was off a pound on the heavy side! :)
We are excited now that we have had another chance to "see" baby Stecher. Do you still think girl? or boy?
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Vancil! We LOVE the crib!Our "theme" is sheep. The window valance and new roman shades
Old COMFY rocker recliner, new nightstand, handmade lampshade by Lynn and Misty, and the family picture collage....I need to start getting photos.
The crib and bedding. Buddy loves the sheep rug below the crib.This is sheep. He is Travis' freehand creation! He peeks out from behind the door....or
you can get a full view if you close the door.
I'm lovin the nursery!

9 hours is a long time when you aren't going TO a vacation! I had a rough night sleeping last night so Travis graciously drove the entire way home today. By the end we were both more than ready to be done with the first road trip in the new car. We even went pass the 1000 mile mark on the odometer!
Once we got home we sprawled out our weekend "goods"
All of this came with our registration to Pezamania! Click to enlarge.
Even "baby" got something from vacation. I'm going to make a receiving blanket quilt with this fabric and some chenille. Travis picked up a stuffed lamb for a shelf in the nursery.
The new baskets/pottery!
Buddy was very happy to see us when we got home, in fact as I type this he and Travis are sprawled out over the bed....I'm not sure where I'm going to fit!
We had a great weekend!
We started by touring some shops and the Crawford Barn. The "barn" has discounted merchandise from the homestead and a little cafeteria restaurant. We had lunch there.
We then took a shuttle to the actual factory. The factory was closed and we were short on time, but we were able to go to the factory store..
We found a "seconds" section of the factory where we found lots of baskets at a reduced price. I kept filling the cart with "possibilities". Travis was a good sport!
On the way to the hotel for Saturday night we drove past the corporate office. It is shaped in the form of a HUGE basket. It was really cool watching it come over the horizon.
We started the weekend pulling into the hotel at 1:15AM! Long Drive....
The first night's PEZ purchases tucked safely into bed!
On Friday night we also played a game called Diceamania. It is similar to Bunko. Both Travis and I stunk...we didn't win once. The goal is to try to get the highest number....the winners were winning with 30's, and some 40's. I think Travis and I scored 3,4, and 5's all night.
The next morning was the actual Pez show and sale. We had a few things left to hunt for and had a great time looking (oogling) over everyone's stuff!
Travis looking for some final buys and the two of us by a fun PEZ umbrella.
Travis took this video from inside the Pez convention. When you see me make a silly face, it's because I backed into a woman and stepped on her toe. Oops!
We had a great time and can't wait to go again another time!
