Some people have to make different decisions to get the end result. In the end - it's the end result - total bliss. Our dreams came true on 6/5/2012. We are forever changed.

Less than 3 weeks....

In less than three weeks baby L is expected to enter our world. We are beyond excited and a bit terrified when we think of the fact that there is going to be a another human being in our world for hopefully the rest of our lives. She's a mover and a shaker and if she's anything like her mom or mom's mom - she's going to give us a run for our money in her teenage years... so for now - I'm enjoying this time she actually likes being with her momma 24/7. Here's some pictures from a few weeks back that we took with our self timer. Once she comes, I hope to get better at the blog thing to remember all the special moments.

half way

20 weeks down. 20 weeks to go.

little update. At our visit for the big U/S the doctor told us that if the baby was out of the womb she would give it a spanking. Everytime she went to look for a leg the baby showed her an arm. It went on and on for almost an hour. The doctor called it a very serious dance party. Pretty much - no doubt - my child.

Then - we got to see the girl parts - yep - confirmed baby girl is coming on way. She's healthy. I have placenta previa so I get to go back on 3/4 for another scan and see how things look. The doctor is pretty confident that things will move around.

I'm really enjoying this part of pregnancy - my belly is just started to make it's grand apperance. The baby loves to sleep in the car, when I'm moving but the second I sit down - she's rocking and rolling.

To make all of you even more sick to your stomachs. Adam is currently on rock star status... he even went as far as opening the tylenol cold and flu capsules for me early in the morning and getting them ready for me this week when I was down and out with a little cold. What a hunny.

the hubs

this weekend adam told me he was playing his monthly poker game on monday night. i ranted and raved a little bit about it not feeling like it was a month ago and it was already! i guess between getting ready for Christmas, fighting off a cold and well - thinking aout other things - I forgot about it.

I made dinner tonight. Adam stopped and picked up a few things at the store for me and came home. He sat by me on the couch. Then he said, "when the timer goes off will dinner be done?" I said, "yes, why?" - he said, "it's poker night" and then - the tears rolled down my face. I couldn't stop.

I love that man.

I must go on this blog three times a day. Not to post anything. For the simple reason that i have this expectation that other people will have posted something on their blog and I expect updates. Sometimes I amaze myself how I can expect something of someone else - but not expect the same of myself.

Everyone that reads this - i think - are all pretty much my Facebook friends - so everyone knows we're having baby. We're obviously thrilled and over the moon about it but at the same time - I try to keep it low key. I understand the struggle. I try not to touch my starting to expand belly in public because i understand how gut wrenching horrible it feels to someone who doesn't have that. It's crazy because now - being 14 weeks pregnant - I sometimes look at another pregnant person and give them the look of death - before I realize that it's ok now. It was always ok to smile at them.

Adam is beyond thrilled. He cracks me up. He will do just about anything for me and seldom complains & only once and a while throws out the - you're out of control statement - in which I quickly reply back - this (as i'm pointing to my belly) you don't understand - this - so just do it now and i don't need your attitude. it works. he's amazing.

I'm scary organized this holiday season. I need to finish ordering a calendar for my grandmother and pick up something at best buy for my dad and then I'm done. Decorations are up - just not the tree - I'm still trying to win on the real tree debate.

My family is healthy and happy - to be honest that's all I've wanted for a long long time. I'm so thankful.

This year for thanksgiving I had everyone in my family write down what they were thankful for and put it in a thankful vase - as we were eating dinner we passed the vase around and each took out one thing to share until they were all gone. I saved them all and made a great collage/picture for my folks for Christmas. The kids loved doing it too!

Kim Kardashian - give me a flipping break. It's no wonder people give up on marriage so easily.
