Another Mug

My 18 weeks and 3 day mug. Look, I'm on the phone with my mom.

This is taking some getting used to. It's a little difficult accepting the changes to my body right now. Please tell me you other mothers out there know what I am talking about. Maybe another day, I will go into more detail about my fears and feelings.....not tonight. I'm tired and need to go to bed.

Short and Sweet

It's been a record-breaking 1 week and 3 days since a puking!!!! I know you wanted to know that, right? Well, I'm excited about it. I have been feeling ALOT better, as I should be at 18 weeks. Now, I just feel stretched a little....I know, just wait, right. I've got a long way to stretch.

On another note, I start Biochemistry and Physics tomorrow. Don't be jealous.

Dave and I put the baby bed together this morning. Yay!

I've been busy lately. Last weekend and into the week, Dave and I repainted and put up new fixtures in the master bath. It is no longer the hideous pink color. It is now a soothing blue color with new light fixtures about the sinks. It was a rather daunting task, but we did it. Well, Dave did it mostly. He took off a few days of work to get it done for me. He's the greatest!

Balls and Bush

This is a bush, in Florida, on the resort where we stayed. To the left is a pond and golf course and behind it is a pool.

These are golf balls.

This is Blue crawling into said bush (yes, really) to get golf balls. I promise, she was in the middle of the bush at one point!


To make our husbands proud.

They were playing golf and we had come back from the beach and were waiting on them to return. We got a little bored. Put me and Blue together with boredem and you get golf ball hunting on the resort. We spent a good hour looking and spying on orphaned golf balls. And we found a whole bunch! The bush incident was the best. It started out by just peeking in to see if there were any balls within reach. Well, I guess Blue couldn't resist the challenge. I held open the bush (wow, this is sounding bad) and in she went. No kidding. She was in the middle of this giant bush, yelling "Oh, here's another one, and another, and another......!" Throwing them out towards the pregnant lady here. We were laughing so hard!! Can you just imagine! It was great.

Look, here she is again in another bush! By the end of the trip, Chrissy and her bush were the butt of many jokes!

Now I Lay Me...

Here it is. This is the crib we bought on Sunday. We bought a matching changing table, too. I was so giddy with excitement on Sunday! Now we have to take apart the guest room and turn it into the nursery. This is the first major thing we have done.

My mom is going to get me the glider/rocker that matches this set, too.

While we were at Babies R Us, we started looking at carseats and travel sets. Holy crap! We were so overwhelmed. So, I may be asking for some advice in that area.

Guess What!

I did it! I have gained three pounds! AND, it's official. My pants don't fit anymore. I went shopping Tuesday and was thrilled to get some pants that fit comfortably. Not to the maternity section yet. I did find some pull on black pants that are dreamy on. I haven't been that comfortable in weeks. I bought two pair of exactly the same pants and different color V-neck shirts. I was so excited!

Today, I am going out looking at baby beds!!!!! I am going to scout out some places while the hubby is sleeping, and when he gets up we'll go buy one. I can't wait. I haven't really done much looking, don't really know what I want or anything else about it. I just want something to look at when I go into the baby room. Right now, it is still set up as the guest bedroom. We painted it yellow when we bought this house, so that's already done.

OH! I find out the sex of the baby on Sept. 8! The next few weeks are going to drag by. Believe me, I will let you guys long as the baby cooperates. :)

14 Week Mug Shot

One week late....I'm 15 weeks now. I swear it looks bigger in person, especially when I look down and after I eat. I am still having my sick spells. Please tell me I won't be one of the unlucky ones who are sick the entire time. I'm worn out. Ironically enough, my shorts say "Lucky" on the butt.
I go back to the doctor on Tuesday, so I'm sure I'll have an update then.
To refresh your memory, here is the first belly shot.

Look, A Picture!

Here we are sitting on the beautiful beach in Destin!

Maybe I'll be able to upload more later. Right now, baby is hungry for lunch!
