Baby shower and Bellies!

By on

Yesterday was a great day. Branden and I ran some errands and had some Five Guys, yum! Then I went to a baby shower for one of my brother’s bestfriend’s wife’s. She is awesome. She is also having a baby boy and I am so excited because we don’t live far from eachother at all. Her son’s name will be Jay Ryan. So cute! There was two other girls who were pregnant there also and so we got a cute picture of the four of us. One girl, Bonnie, is about 5 weeks after me and she had the cutest belly already. Then the other girl was 7 months along and she has a small belly like me and we are both having boys so I kept joking with Bonnie she must be having a girl. She thinks she is having a girl so I am really wondering what her baby will be. She was super sweet and we had a great time.
Not to much else has been going on. I have been busy with school, had two tests last week. I also am seeing a counseling about my anxiety which is finally getting better, thank goodness! I need to do a weekly update and belly shot so I will try to get that done today. I have been really bad about it. Sorry!

Me: 5 months, Bonnie, 4 months.

8months, 7 months, 5 months, 4 months!

March Madness!

By on March 20, 2011

March is one of my family’s favorite months. It’s the month of birthdays, my nephews, mine, my Dads, my Grandpa’s and my cousin’s. We also have a fun tradition called The Festival of the Green Pig. This year we celebrated it on the 11th, which is my Grandpa’s birthday. He was such an amazing man. He is who we are naming our sweet baby after, Adonis. We went to our house in the Keys with my Dad’s side of the family and dressed up in our Irish nick nacks and grabbed our two fake green pigs, told our fake Green Pig story and had dinner. It was great. We all laughed, some cried because Grandma and Grandpa are no longer with us and then we laughed some more. Overall March is an amazing month for us. Today is my cousin’s birthday and we also took my Dad to brunch since his birthday was Monday and he went to dinner with just my Mom. My sister and I wanted to do something nice for him so we all went to Brio for brunch, minus Branden since he had to work, and then to Barnes and Noble. I got Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy. I started the book with my first pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage but I am excited to actually read it and enjoy it this time around.
Last night Branden also put together Ace’s crib. It was cute watching him get it together. He is so handy, I love it. We still need his mattress but it definitely made it more real with that crib staring us in the face. I just can not wait to meet my little baby boy. We are so blessed.

Anxiety!

By on March 19, 2011

Ever since I was young I have had anxiety. It would usually come on suddenly and leave fairly quickly. Pregnancy has made my anxiety worse recently. I am not sure why but for some reason the Japan tragedy has really weighed on me. I am terrified of something horrible happening and Ace not being able to live a wonderful life. I want him to be able to do all the things he wants to and be whoever he wants. I am having a hard time rationalizing that with everything horrible in the world there is good. I just don’t know why this is so difficult for me right now. I wish I didn’t have such horrible anxiety but lets hope it goes away fast!

Shopping!

By on March 5, 2011

Today I spent the afternoon with my sister. We first went to lunch and met up with my cousin, her husband and their precious baby boy, Colton. He will be Ace’s future BFF!

Then we went to Old Navy since the one here sells maternity clothes. The maternity section was tiny, to say the least, but I got a few cute things. I got a blue and white striped shirt, very sailorish, an awesome pair of jeans and two tank tops. I also got Ace a cute hat. I love it. It reminded my sister and me of our Dad. It’s a straw Fedora but my Dad always wears straw hats in the Keys, so I thought it was perfect.

Now I am home in bed lounging around till Bran gets here to take me to dinner for an early birthday dinner! He has to work at night on my birthday and I work day so I won’t really see him, such a bummer. My sister and best friend are taking me out for a girls night, so I can’t complain to much. It will be nice to have a fun date night with my husband!

Registering!

By on March 3, 2011

So we have begun our registry! We did a little on Amazon.com but the bulk of everything will be at Babies R’ Us. It was pretty fun getting it started. It may change here and there if I end up getting more things from the ladies I nanny for but I think we picked some good items. I am moved excited about the stroller we are going to get. Its the Mia Moda Atmosferra. It has great reviews and I love all the extras.

I have been pretty bad about updating my weekly stats so I will just do one for the 19th week because I think I skipped the 18th week.

The most exciting thing going on is I can finally feel the baby! It just started a couple days ago here and there. Right now it just feels like pops or something. It’s nice to know he is doing something in there.

We also go Wednesday for the anatomy scan!! Yay! I can not wait to see him again.

Not to much else is going on, I have a cold which is annoying, oh and my 27th birthday is Monday! Yay!
