Photo Project

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Back when we learned that we were expecting, the hubs and I
talked about ways to document our pregnancy.
We decided on making t-shirts with iron on numbers, and taking a photo each month.

I haven't shared any belly photos yet, but now that it's actually noticeable,
thought I'd give you all a little peek!
At almost 23 weeks, people are starting to say "are you expecting,"
which I always thought was a bit risky to say to a woman,
but thankfully they are right!

Maternity pants and dresses (especially with this 90+ degree weather) are in full effect, but
I'm loving that the trends these days include flowy, tunic style tops,
because I haven't had to buy many of those ... yet. 

I can't believe we're past the half way mark - little girl will be here before we know it!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

22 Weeks

Sunday, June 17, 2012

We're back from a couple days at Higgins, and all I can say is that two days is not enough. Two days at the lake with family, and 12 hours in the car is just not right. It was great getting out of the city, but baby girl and I are not really fans of long car rides. So, hopefully next time the time away will be more than double the drive time!

Ready for another update?

How far along? 22 weeks.
Total weight gain? 10-12 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Pants and dresses. 
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep? Mostly good. I finally found a comfortable medium between my back and side. I've also been staying up later which is helping me sleep more soundly. 
Best moment this week? Family time at Higgins!
Miss anything? Not really. 
Movement? Yes, lots of kicks now. Although baby girl is really shy, and whenever someone else tries to check it out she immediately stops. 
Food cravings? Not really craving anything specific. I enjoy lemonade still, and a good root beer! Ice cream has also been making it's way into our house more now that it's so hot outside. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Labor signs? No.
Symptoms? Small headaches here and there.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy, although I have been a bit sensitive lately. And, the car ride today was a bit much for me and the little lady. 
Looking forward to? Another fun Bump Club event on Tuesday. 

It's time to get to bed, and hopefully sleep well before another Monday.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Make The Best of It

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I found this really great quote the other day that I thought I'd share with you. 

"Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out."
~Jack Buck~

I try to remind myself, when things don't go my way, that everything happens for a reason. I thought that this was a great way of looking at it, too. 

There's only one day left in my week, then it's off to the lake for a much needed weekend away with family. 

Have a great week!

Call Me Maybe

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Ok, this was too funny not to share with everyone! I'm sure you've all had the song Call Me Maybe stuck in your head just as many times as I have. Pretty catchy, eh?

Now, our President has been known to do some singing at events in the recent past, but I never thought he'd add this one to his repertoire.

President Obama sings 'Call Me Maybe'

How long do you think it took this person to clip all of this together?

I hope it entertained you just as much as it did me!

Happy Wednesday :)

Team Pink or Team Blue?

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Well, the day finally arrived, and after much anticipation, we got to find out the sex of our little munchkin.

Meet Noelle Irene Silverman, everyone!

And, her feet, because the shot was just too cute :)

We're very excited to finally share the news with everyone. Will keep you updated as always.

Hope you have a great rest of your week!
