Nursery Pictures

We've finally finished the painting of the nursery. It doesn't look complete yet because our furniture won't be here until January :) Who knew it would take so long for baby furniture to arrive!!! Let's hope our baby girl likes pink :)

End of the 2nd Trimester

Well, the second trimester is coming to a close this week. I'm torn on how I feel about that. It's super exciting that we are getting closer to having our baby girl in our arms, which is a scary thing at the same time. Plus, I've felt so good during my 2nd trimester, that I'm scared of all the aches and pains I've read are headed my way during the 3rd trimester. I've enjoyed every second of being pregnant and feeling my baby girl dancing inside of me. She is very energetic and strong, and I can't help but smile every time I get jabbed because it just makes it so real and feels like she is communicating her love to me. God has blessed us women with this miracle and it amazes me each day.

I had my 27 week appointment last week and we had the opportunity to see our baby girl again. She has a stubborn streak already and refused to move at all during the ultrasound, which is exactly what happened at our 19 week appointment. Therefore, we were unable to verify with 100% accuracy that she is indeed a girl. At our 19 week ultrasound, the doctor said he was 97% sure it was a girl, but I really want that 100% guarantee :) I'm not good at surprise, plus the nursery is already pink. My doctor said she is healthy and weighing in at 2 pounds. She is kind of on the small side at this point, in the 35 percentile, but has a strong heartbeat and looks great.

We took belly shots again on Sunday to document my expanding's so crazy how it can stretch like that! I will post them soon, along with some shots of the nursery walls :)

Halloween 2009

This year we decided not to do much on Halloween because there are not many cute costumes to accommodate the growing belly of a pregnant woman out there :) So, we went to the A&M game instead of staying in town. Whoop! We actually won the game (2nd game in a row)! We've been meaning to start taking belly shots each week and keep putting it off. So, after the game, we decided it was time to start because our sweet baby girl is growing rapidly, which is making me grow rapidly too. I am 25 weeks as of yesterday.

Even though we didn't dress up this year, we did dress Myles and Macie up in their bumblebee costumes. They both hated every second of it, so we had to bribe them with treats to keep the hats on. Great parenting skills already, I know :)

Hope you had a great Halloween!
