So much to be thankful for

Thanksgiving was spent in California with my family and we ate OUTSIDE! It was amazing. This Thanksgiving I have so much to be thankful for. Mainly a wonderful husband and a baby on the way! The list could go on for days. The night of Thanksgiving we went out shopping for black friday. I was at the mall at Midnight with all the other teenagers/crazies. I got all baby stuff. It was so much fun! We went shopping on actual black friday too. I am officially on a shopping fast for a few weeks. It was a good one and now I'm in the third trimester! AH! I'll update with pics soon but I'm feeling great and getting anxious for February.

A letter

Dear Baby, 

We are expecting your arrival in appx. 13 weeks but I wouldn't mind if you came a little early. Not too early, but maybe like a week :) You are so incredibly active inside my tummy, and your Daddy actually asked me the other this normal?? You are constantly moving and shaking. We are pretty positive we have a name for you but I'm pretty fickle these days and you never know if I might change my mind. Your Daddy is a full-time student and the other day he said something about how school and getting a job and providing for us is what constantly is on his mind. I proudly stated that baby was on my mind 24/7 because you are! Sometimes I drift off to sleep thinking about you and even dreaming about you. My favorite dream so far has been when I dreamt that me, you and your daddy were lying in bed snuggling. Daddy and I were playing with your little toes and little fingers. I dream about the day you will come into our lives and sometimes I wake up feeling anxious. I want to meet you right now! But I understand that you need to fatten up before we can meet you. 

The other night your Daddy was talking to you really close to my belly. You were being kinda shy but as soon as he started talking you were kicking and moving around like a mad man! In a way, I think I'll miss having you inside of me. We pray every night that you are growing and developing just the way you should. We love you so much, already and can't wait to meet you.

Lake Arrowhead + a baby blessing




We had another family fun day and this time we went up to Lake Arrowhead for the day. It was my nephew Braden's first family fun day and all day I kept thinking, what did we do before he was born?? Seriously though, why are babies so entertaining? All day we were oohhing and aaahing at the littlest things he would do. On our walk in Lake Arrowhead we had to make a little pit stop to change a diaper. I could not stop laughing at his little bum up in the air like that. On Sunday we had Braden's baby blessing and had lunch in the park. It was a fun weekend and I can't wait for Thanksgiving when we can all be together again!

Nights like last night

Yesterday was one of those days. I woke up feeling blah. I was having all sorts of crazy negative thoughts about myself and others. Since being pregnant, these days come often. You see, I am one of those people who is very affected by hormones. I had to stop taking birth control because it was making  me act like a psycho person. I am already very emotional and when my hormones aren't in check, it can get kinda crazy over here. Anyway, yesterday was just one of those days. J was at school and work and I was moping around like a bum. As luck would have it, my husband is very intuitive. I swear the minute we wake up in the morning, he just knows. He knows to be extra sensitive towards me and he knows to just shrug off the ludicrous comments I make. I held it in all day until J got home from work. I'm sure when he got home from work he wasn't exactly looking forward to a blubbering wife who was blubbering about nothing, literally, but you would never tell that this was the case. He just let me cry and talk and talk and talk through my crying. He laid there and held me even though I knew he was exhausted and ready for bed. He rubbed my back and held my hand until I fell asleep. It was nights like last night when I go to bed thinking that I have the perfect man for me. My mom warned him before we got married (this literally happened) that I am a bit hard to handle but he picked me anyway and I'm really glad he did. I don't know what I would do without this man. I guess you could say I'm starting off the month of November feeling very grateful. 

And oh what a Daddy he will be :)
