Countdowns

Lately I feel like there are so many countdown’s I can’t keep track of what exactly I am counting down to and when! haha
3 things we have been counting down start Friday, Praise Jesus!
Friday: Last day of school + school baby shower that my SWEET friends are throwing for me!
Saturday: My  cousin David is graduating High School! Seriously can’t believe…I still remember being the backyard ‘helping’ with yardwork when we got the call that my Aunt had gone into labor! If you don’t know him you should..he’s pretty much awesome and will be at DBU in the Fall!
Sunday: Our week long trip with my parents & bro and sis’n’law to The Cayman Islands. Can.Not.Wait…a vacay is long overdue…plus it might be the last one for a while 😉
With that said, be on the look for a LOT of pictures when we get back…and hopefully a more exciting blog to read…not that anyone has probably been missing my posts haha
With that said, here is an update on Libby!
31 Weeks
Baby GIRL–Weighing in at a whopping 3.3 pounds and 16 inches long (according to baby center) Apparently if you carry 4 navel oranges you get a good idea of how much that actually is! My doctor says she is perfect and right on track size wise and so far is head down-yay!
Movement–Still moving…but more and more…and much more pronounced jabs to the side!
Weight gain–15 pounds! Holy pete…
Maternity clothes-I feel like I am broken record on this one-some maternity clothes some not-although I DID try on a skirt that definitely did NOT come close to zipping up-that was awesome.
Gender–GIRL!! Libby Shea is her name. It means Promise of God, Preserved Isaiah 59:21
Food cravings–right now I like food in general…and a lot of it.
Sleep–Good just can’t seem to get enough…maybe a week at the beach with no working will help with that dilemma 🙂
If anyone is still reading (if you are like me, I look to see if there are pictures and if there are none you have 50/50 shot of me reading the whole post) I PROMISE there will be pictures next post of lots of fun stuff and hopefully soon a tour of the nursery!

Tuesday Ramblings

Yesterday began 29 weeks! It also began the start of going to the doctor ever 2 weeks-seriously?! How am I already to that point? I’m pretty sure it was just yesterday when I was just going for our very first appointment (and still freaking out JUST a little bit haha!)
 
Baby GIRL–She is weighing in at 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long! Every day my kids at school ask me how big she is and for some reason the thought of her being a butternut squash was hysterical to them. Probably because its the first vegetable that sounded familiar to them (unlike the previous “rutabaga”) My first graders also swear they can hear her breathing-oh how I love them.
Movement–Currently, it feels like she is trying to see how many flips in row she can do-kind of like I used to do when swimming and you would go as fast you could without coming up for a breath to beat your last record. Anybody out there relating to this?
Weight gain–11 pounds
Maternity clothes-I feel like I am broken record on this one-some maternity clothes some not-although I DID try on a skirt that definitely did NOT come close to zipping up-that was awesome. 
Gender–GIRL!! Libby Shea is her name. It means Promise of God, Preserved Isaiah 59:21
Food cravings–right now I like food in general…and a lot of it.
Sleep–Has been great-with the exception of last nights crazy loud thunder keeping me up 🙂 
 
In other news it has been a day of surprises around here (well half surprise/half relief/half excitement….I guess these should be more in thirds but whatever)
  • Justin won a brand spankin’ new Nikon camera that is worth $1000 from a door prize! Ummm awesome!
  • I received my new passport in the mail so now we can all sigh a BIG sigh of relief because now I can OFFICIALLY go on our big family trip to the Cayman Islands! Now-if I can only make support hose cool for the airplane ride and NOT get called a beached whale while there (dad!) 🙂
  • We were offered 4 free tickets to go to the Astros game tonight-and although they haven’t been playing the greatest-the atmosphere is ALWAYS fun and we will get to hang out with the bro-in-law and sis-in-law Jordan and Warren!

Well that’s all folks! (did that remind you of Looney Toons because it did me..not sure where that came from) 

Maternity pics

I tried to think of a more intriguing title for this post but…that didn’t happen. As I write this I am  28 weeks and 4 days…seriously where does time go? These pictures were actually taken at 27 weeks and 6 days 🙂 Not that it matters-but for some reason thought you would all want to know EXACTLY the time frame?! Ok, maybe not but I told you anyway 🙂

While in Borger my friend Shanna offered to take some maternity pics for Justin and I while we were there! So here is a sneak preview..
