Happy Holidays!

This time of year is just crazy! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Did Santa bring you everything you hoped and wished for?! I know Brock scored a pretty big Christmas & he's not even here yet! He got lots of blankies and clothes that are sure to make your heart melt. Grandpa Kevin & Tami got us a travel system that I completely adore. Aaron & I had tons of fun pushing Maggie (our Yorkie-Poo) around in the stroller. She was too cute- I'll have to post pictures of that later. My awesome hubby got me some much needed maternity clothes for work and a gift card to a spa! Oh man I can't wait for my massage! Anyway, here is Aaron & I Christmas Day- also 24 weeks.

  • How far along: 24 weeks
  • Weight gain: I haven't been on a scale in a while- I would guess +10 lbs
  • Maternity clothes: Yep, cute new ones too!
  • Sleep: Back to not sleeping well :(
  • Stretch marks: No
  • Best moment of this week: Christmas!!!
  • Food cravings: Cookies- I really love Snicker doodle
  • Movement: Several time per day now. We can see little kicks too!
  • Labor sings: No
  • What I miss most: Being tan. Aaron & I used to be the same color! Haha!
  • What I'm looking forward to: Seeing Brock Christian next week. I have another ultrasound on Thursday b/c he was being stubborn at the anatomy scan and they weren't able to get the pictures of his little face that they needed.
  • Milestones: Happy V-Day to me! Viability Day that is. Brock is now big enough to survive in the real world. Obviously we want to keep him cooking for as long a possible but it's a great feeling to know our chances are good if something horrible should happen.

We have kicks!!!

It's about time! I finally felt Brock kick or punch or something but it was movement for sure! We were at a friends house sitting on the couch and I felt a little poke on my right side. I looked at Aaron and told him I think I just felt the baby move. I put his hand where I felt it and sure enough little Brock kicked his Daddy! It was so awesome! Now that I know what it feels like I feel him all the time. I'm so excited and it was well worth the wait.

21 Weeks

Wow, 21 weeks! Before you know it our little man will be here. I can't believe how fast time is going by. Christmas is on it's way and we still don't know if we will be in the new house by then or not. Please people approve the short sale already! Well in honor of the Holiday Season here is our little man in a Santa hat! I couldn't resist!

  • How far along?: 21 weeks
  • Weight gain: I have a doctor's appointment Monday and will get the official weigh in. But I weighed myself at Publix and have apparently gained 8 pounds! At least it's all belly and boobs so far!
  • Maternity clothes: Yes, I love my maternity jeans! Aaron wishes they made them for men. He gets so jealous that after a big meal my pants grow with my belly and he has to unbutton his pants.
  • Sleep: I am sleeping like a baby. Well, the babies that actually sleep!
  • Stretch marks: No!
  • Best moment of this week: Well it was last week but finding out that we're having a little boy!
  • Movement: I'm still not feeling him. I'm really starting to get frustrated with this. I'm going to ask my doctor on Monday if I have an anterior placenta. That would explain things!
  • Food cravings: I've been craving burgers this week. I can't get enough meat!
  • Belly button in or out: In but it's getting shallow. It is way too early for it to pop.
  • What I miss most: Nothing. I love being pregnant right now!
  • What I'm looking forward to: Starting on his nursery.
  • Weekly Wisdom: Friends are awesome! Keep them close and make sure they know how thankful you are of them.
  • Milestones: Finding out the sex & being half way done

I'm really not sure how a banana is bigger than a cantaloupe but I'm guessing they are going by length..

Half Baked

With the holiday last week I have been pretty busy and haven't had a chance to update the blog. I have reached a HUGE milestone... I am officially half way through my pregnancy! It seems like just yesterday we found out the awesome news but at the same time I can't wait to meet my little boy. Wow I never thought I would be saying that!

Some updates:
Brooke finally moved back home and while we learned a lot about our selves and each other during her time with us Aaron and I are both very glad to see her go. We have our house back and it's so nice!

We are getting close to closing on the house. Please keep your fingers crossed that everything goes through in the next week or so. We really need to be in before Christmas and I'm dying to start the baby's nursery and put up my Christmas tree.

We're making progress on a name. We're not ready to run out and get things embroidered but we have been playing with the idea of Brock Christian for a couple of weeks now and we both still like it. I think it's a strong name and a great compromise to having a Jr.

Nursery decor is a battle right now. Aaron wants a typical sports themed room and I'm not having' it! I will only have the next 2 to 3 years max to have a say in how his room will be decorated and till I will be up to my eyeballs in balls, bats, gloves, ect. I want a cute nursery maybe jungle animals or sail boats. It's not like I'm trying to put pink stuff in there but I'm not ready for full blown sports stuff yet.

Well 20 weeks down to 20 go!
