Just for my records

Believe it or not the computer is more accessable to me than a pen and paper right now and I have to document a cute Jonah moment. I put him on his play mat so I could steam mop the kitchen and I heard him fussing, so I went in to see what was wrong and he had dropped the book (it's soft btw) he was "reading" on his face and couldn't figure out how to get it off. He looked so cute waving his arms and kicking his legs and you couldn't see his head at all. What a guy!
That is all,

Well it's about time!

I know, I know. I said I'd do better about blogging......almost a year ago! You must give me some credit though. At the time I was yucky sick all the time with my pregnancy and all I pretty much wanted to do was lay in bed (or the couch). Well, needless to say, ALOT has happened since then. I became more and more pregnant.And this was at only 30 weeks! Yes, I got huge by week 41 1/2!!!

And instead of getting one of theseWe got one of these!!
Best surprise ever!

I'll save the birth story for another post because I like to make it sound long, but it really wasn't that bad.

So the or the last 3.75 months I have been enjoying being a mommy to the most incredible little man. I will be honest, during my pregnancy I doubted my maternal abilities ALOT! I was scared I was going to do something wrong and mess up a perfectly good baby. But as soon as my little guy came out, I was so in love and just wanted to snuggle him up and take care of him. It's amazing how that happens!! So without getting too mushy, I will just leave my first post back short and sweet. I'll bombard you with pictures of the cutest baby EVER, later.

It feels good to be back,

Hello Second Trimester

Today marks my first day of my second trimester! I think I'm getting closer and closer to feeling like myself again! I still have moments of nausea but now I can tell myself it will pass. HALLELUJAH!! I don't feel like there has been alot of change yet, but one thing that has changed that has been hard to get used to is that I can't really sleep on my stomach anymore. Somehow every night I end up on my stomach and then I wake up with sore sad...I'm a stomach sleeper. Other than that, there's not too much going on. Here are my last 2 pictures from 12 and 14 weeks. There's a bit of a shadow on the wall so it makes it seem like I'm a little bigger...just keep that in mind.

Baby Bumps or Lovely Lady Lumps?

Well we are pregnant! I am nearing the end of the first trimester and hoping to get into that honeymoon stage of pregnancy. Fingers crossed, but I'm hoping the sick subsides VERY soon. That has been extremely hard to get through, but when things get really bad, Daniel plays me the video of our little nuggets heartbeat, and that sweet sound seems to take the edge off a bit. ;)
We have gotten to see the heartbeat once at 6 weeks, and hear it at 8 weeks. It's pretty cute, I'm not gonna lie. :) Anyway, now that I have something fun to blog about, this will get updated much more often. Here are some pictures of the growing baby and momma. I have to say I'm a little surprised to show so soon (really it just kinda started in the last few days) and I promise I'm not pushing it out.

It has certainly been a while since I blogged. My mom called me the other day and said, "on April 28th you blogged that you would promised to be back soon". Can you believe my own mother would call me out on such a thing?! :)
Well things have been pretty busy since April 28th. We moved, I've been to LOTS of births, I've traveled and seen family and had them travel to see me, I repelled in the Palo Duro canyon, kept a couple of very cute kids for a few days, I've gotten a tan, lost a tan, gone blonde, seen college girlfriends for some fun at the lake, and the list goes on and on. It has been eventful so I suppose I just never felt that the time was right to blog about it all. Next thing I know, 3 months have pile up. One thing that kept me away was that the day we closed on our house and begin to move in, I took a positive pregnancy test. A couple of weeks later I had a miscarriage. I wanted to blog about all the fun things I had been up to, but that seemed like so much a part of my life that I felt like I could just appear on my blog as if everything was all peachy. So when I felt the time was right, I wrote a huge blog about my experience and how it was to grieve a pregnancy. Then I went back and for forth for the last month on whether or not to post it. I won't post it because I don't think I'm ready to share that much, but I did feel that I needed to mention it in all the events because it is now a part of who I am and what has been going on with our little family. I will just say that God has been present and protected our hearts through it all and we have felt so much love from our friends and family around us. Thanks for the prayers!
So, our new house.....we are mostly moved in and settled, but there are always those last few boxes that we're not quite sure what to do with them. Oh well. When we moved in the dining room was an obnoxious candy apple red. It is now a lovely light grey, almost white color. I'm going for a calming neutral space. As soon as we find our cable to the camera, I will try to post before and after pictures of the house. I LOVE the house. We have a heavily wooded creek behind us so the critters are ever prestent. A couple of nights ago I felt my hair tickling my arm and kept trying to brush it off. After a couple of minutes of that I thought maybe it wasn't a hair after all, so Daniel turned on the light and low and behold a spider had been crawling up and down my arm. I haven't slept the same since!!!
In other news, yesterday was Daniel's 26th birthday. He spent the day working and the night at our neighborhood crime watch training. Yes folks 26 going on 80. Just kidding. He can protect me anytime!!!
I really just need to get the camera cable found so I can have a fun post of all pictures. Heaven knows this is long winded and nobody is probably even reading anymore. If you are, you are a trooper! I will be more regular about blogging now!!! I PROMISE MOM!
Well that's all my tiny fingers feel like typing for now, so I'll be back soon with more super interesting things. :)
Happy Tuesday!!!
