Guess who I got to see this morning??

A precious, sweet little boy!

Everything is right on track and going well! My appointments are extra fun especially now that he is getting so big. I can tell more and more each time about what/who he is going to look like! I was able to tell by the ultrasound pic this time that it looks like he has my nose! I absolutely love seeing him each time I go to the exciting!

In nursery news, I found a nursery design that I am in LOVE with and I am pretty sure that I am going to coordinate the bedding {in a solid color} around the room colors. I will post some pictures of the room soon for sure so that you can tell me what you think...I hope y'all love it!

I don't know about you, but I am so thankful that tomorrow is Friday! Happy Friday Eve to you...hope that your day is going super great!!

Totally Random

The following 3 things {I feel like} have been consuming my thoughts for the last week:
  • Deciding on the baby bedding/nursery...

  • Determining all that I need to register for...

  • Actually going to start registering!

    Don't get me wrong...I am not lying in bed all night long thinking about these things, but just feel like any free second that I have to just rest is being consumed by thoughts that I need to get my "plan" {or lack there of at this point} into action!

    As far as the baby bedding goes, I have found 3 or 4 sets that I really like on the Mod Pea Pod website. I am not really {at all} a theme person so I feel like it is hard for me to imagine what I want the nursery to look like. The fact that I have never had a child before also makes it hard because I don't want the room to look like all Natalie, I want it to look like a nursery {obviously}. I don't even know if that previous sentence made any sense at all, but what I am trying to say is that I want it to look like a nursery for our sweet little boy...not like any other room in my house just with a crib??!!??

    When I started thinking about the nursery in the beginning I felt like if I just picked out the bedding first, it would all fall into place after that. Now that I have found some bedding that I like I think about the accessories to make it all come together...I am a mess! I know that it will for sure come together soon, I'm just going to continue the online research. Do you know of any cute nursery idea websites??

    Then there's the registry...what do I need to take care of this sweet child of mine??!!?? I decided last night that I am just going to have my best friend go once with me then have my sister come with me to register that way I cover all my bases. I have been compiling a list of all the things that I am pretty sure that I need...well last night while reading the list to my sister she knocked at least 5 items off the list, ha! I think I am just going to leave this one up to the "professionals," the girls that already have babes! Of course any input you have on items that are a must would be greatly appreciated!!

    I hope that everyone is having a great week so far! Happy Wednesday tomorrow...we're almost halfway there, yay!

23 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 23 weeks today.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my last doctor's visit I forgot to ask...I think that they act like you haven't gained any weight unless it's a problem, so I am guessing that there was gain just not too much.

How Big is the Baby: The size of a papaya

Gender: It's a BOY!

Maternity Clothes: I have been living in non-maternity dresses and gaucho type pants!

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling him move all around in my tummy! This actually happened for me right before my 21st week. I feel him move most in the morning and at night while I am laying still in bed.

Stretch Marks: Negative

Movement: Definitely and I love it!

Sleep: Sleeping is still fine, but it's still sometimes tricky getting comfortable.

What I miss: Being able to bend over and get out of bed with ease! It has been the strangest feeling to move around and get up from a sitting or laying down position with a ball that does not move attached to my body!

What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery and registering!

Symptoms: Still getting heartburn from pretty much anything...even water! Other than that I feel super fantastic!

Food Cravings: I have been craving vegetables constantly! I think I had steamed squash and zucchini three times last week, ha!

Belly Button: Still an inny, but it's getting flatter my the day!

Signs of Labor: Thankfully, no!

I hope that everyone is having a fabulous Monday!

A Year Ago Today...

A year ago today I was in paradise...the Dominican Republic to be exact, but it sure was amazing!

A year ago today I married my best friend and the love of my the Dominican Republic!

The trip was absolutely amazing! Just to add a little icing on the wedding best friend Tennyson and her hubby were there too making this little Weddingmoon of ours extra special!

After the ceremony we had dinner at the French restaurant on the resort which was oh so delicious, elegant, and lovely!

The day after our wedding, Tennyson and Chris headed back to Tulsa and we stayed in the DR for the Honeymoon portion of this fabulous WeddingMoon!

We spent the rest of our time there just enjoying each other and being married! As I look back on this day last year, I am flooded with memories of what a wonderful time we had together but most of all I am so thankful to have married such a wonderful man.

I always knew in my heart that Billy would be an amazing husband, but each and everyday he continues to surprise me with how amazingly he loves me! He is my everything and I truly fall more in love with him with each passing day.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for our future together because I know that it will be so absolutely amazing!

Happy Anniversary babe...I love you with all of my heart and am so very grateful to have you to spend the rest of my life with! I look forward to many more Anniversary's celebrating the day that we became Husband and Wife! I love you bunches!!
