11 Weeks And 1 Day

I went to Target (pronounced Tar-jay) to pick up some basic household items. Somehow I ended up in the baby section. Okay I went there on purpose. I gotta say that they had some really nice things there. I decided yesterday that I wanted to buy a present for Peanut. This is the first time since finding out I am pregnant that I felt safe to do so. I didn't realize how much I was holding my emotional breath until I got through my first trimester. Which is technically next week, but this week's heartbeat has me dancing on clouds.
So I browsed the baby aisle and didn't see anything that jumped out. And then there it was. Of course it is obvious why I choose it. My honeybee romance continues.
