Hello all…it’s been a while, I know, and again I apologize. I’m sure there is a lot that has happened since I last posted, but nothing too huge that I felt I needed to blog about it. We did buy the stroller that I posted about last time, it’s all put together and in her room, YAY! We have a good amount of stuff registered at Babies R Us and Target which seemed to take FOREVER, and I’m sure there are things missing, but I’m so tired of registering so I’ll have to come back to that a little later. We also bought the crib mattress, Babies R Us came out with a 30% off coupon for 1 day only and it was on the brand of mattress that we had picked out so we got it for about $80 which is a good deal for those! Yay for having a couple things in her room now 🙂
I’ve been kind of out of it lately. Just tired, a little down, too. We have 4 months until our little girl arrives, and I really really want to be in Apex. It just seems like it’s just gettting farther and farther away 🙁 I want to be close to my parents, my sister, my church, etc. When our daughter gets here, I want her grandparents to be able to come over whenever they want. I want to be able to run to the store, leave 10 min. before church starts instead of 35min. I mean it’s ridiculous the amount we drive to and from things. Almost everywhere we goes takes 30 min. or more to get to. We’re going to take a leap of faith and put our house on the market, within the next week or 2 and I just ask that you all would pray for us. I pray that somewhere, God would send us a buyer and we would get a decent amount for the house (considering the crappy economy) and that we would find a house. That’s a lot of prayers I know, but we’re really praying for a miracle.
Our Hope Chapel playgroup is now complete! Casey and Joey found out today that they are, too, having a baby girl which makes it 3 girls and 1 boy! Lindsay & Brian are having a girl and they have picked a name out! And Lindsey & Todd are having a boy and they have chosen a name as well! It’s so exciting!!! I can’t wait to be able to call our little girl by her own name, but it looks like that may not be in the near future. We can’t seem to decide on anything, well really we can’t come up with too many names that we are in love with. Everyone says not to worry, it will come….but I want to name her now!!!
I’m growing a lot as of late. Everyone is commenting now on how pregnant I look. One of my coworkers said “Man you really blew up this past weekend didn’t you?” Not in a bad way, but it did make me realize how much bigger I am now then I was just a few weeks ago. I don’t mind being big, gaining weight, nothing like that but I definitely physically feel bigger. The way I walk, the way I sit down and get up, and especially when I get in and out of bed I can really tell how big my belly is. It’s funny how I feel, it’s unexplainable, but cool! I’ll try to take some more pictures, but I honestly don’t wear real clothes much and when I do, I don’t do much so I don’t have a reason to take pictures. I don’t think anyone wants to see my “naked” belly pictures that I take every week but it’s crazy to look at the difference between 5 weeks and last week at 21 weeks…crazy!!!! Oh, and she’s moving like crazy. She’s most active on my drive home from work and right before I eat. Yesterday I felt like I was going to fall off the couch she was moving so much, and I can usually see when she’s moving just by looking at my stomach. And I can feel where she is sometimes, it’s like my stomachs tense and hard and I can massage it and feel her move over to the other side…it’s really kind of cool. My co-worker felt her this morning and was like oh yea, that’s totally her head!
I think my first baby shower is going to happen at the end of next month up in Ashe with the Chaisson family. It’s a little early but I don’t plan on making any more trips to Ashe past Christmas they’re going to have it before the holidays! I’m so excited, it’s going to be crazy having a ton of actual baby stuff everywhere, I can’t wait!!! Alright, I think I’ve filled most of the gaps. Hopefully I’ll have something to blog about soon, take care 🙂
