30 Weeks & a Few Days!

Once again, not the greatest or clearest picture of me, but it will do! I had a doctor's appointment this afternoon and Brody is doing wonderful! His heart rate was in 140's and my belly is measuring 29 1/2 weeks!

Excuse the bathroom I am in! You can see the stickers on the towel rack and Hunter's potty chart on the door! Potty training has been a blast- NOT! And doing it while pregnant, makes it double fun! I've had to learn over the past several months that this is one thing he can control and it's not easy for a child to give up something like this! He is doing well with it and we are very proud of him! I'm sure you all wanted to hear all about this :o)

We have Hunter's pre-school orientation tomorrow- tear :0( Is he really old enough?! I am excited for him though and I know it will be great for him to be in a structured/learning environment to prepare him for school. Bring out the tissues for mommy though!

Wordless Wednesday

OK- so it's not really wordless Wednesday because I am going to tell you all about this picture! We loaded up to go out to eat Friday night and when we got to the restaurant, Hunter was asleep. We thought he would wake up and eat, but instead he curled up in the booth with Brett and went back to sleep! He was one tuckered out little guy! You know he's in deep sleep because he has his mouth open! I love it!

Tummy Tuesday!

Can you believe I am seven months?! Brody weighs about two pounds and is roughly ten inches long, which is the average size of a zucchini! He takes about 20-30 minute naps and knows mine and Brett's voice! His taste buds are well developed and he can respond to sweet and sour tastes! I tend to get kicked when I drink something really cold as well! Sorry for the blurry picture!

This past weekend was tax free weekend in Tennessee! Of course I wanted to go shopping and look for baby clothes and some clothes for myself. After running a few errands Saturday, Brett and I decided to go to the outlets in Pigeon Forge. As I was shopping in the Children's Place, he told me he was going to go to Oakley. When I finished up, I went Oakley and couldn't find him. I called him to see where he was at and he told me he was buying something for me. I told him to meet me at Gap because I wanted to buy some comfy pants for when I have Brody! He walked in with a Coach shopping bag and inside was a diaper bag! What a SURPRISE! He said he figured mine was three years old and I needed a new one! What a sweetie!

He obviously picked it out himself and I think he did a great job! I can't wait to use it and I feel extremely lucky to have a husband that thinks/does this stuff for me!

My baby showers are quickly approaching and I can't wait to see all of my friends and family! My friend Lori is making a diaper wreath for me to hang on the door at the hospital and I can't wait to see it! She is so creative! I will make sure to post pictures! I hope everyone has a great week!

Bubba Gump Shrimp & More!

The Girl's Trip was a HUGE success! We had a wonderful time reminiscing, giggling/talking until 4:00 a.m. and of course eating! Although, can you believe we didn't take one picture? Not one! Which is fine with me considering I'm not really feeling photogenic these days! I was a terrible packer and forgot numerous things, including my camera. Sorry!

We enjoyed shopping at the outlets, walking around Gatlinburg, and eating everything in site! Our favorite meal was at Bubba Gump Shrimp! It was delicious, our waiter was hysterical, and everyone knows that I love movies! They quizzed us on our Forest Gump knowledge and I must say Layne was the champion!

It was a wonderful time and just what I needed! It did make me sad to see all of my childhood best friends leave, but no worries, I am going home to Madisonville in a month for my first baby shower!

I wanted to say thanks again to Layne for all of your hard work in putting this together! You found a great place for us to stay and you brought all of the goodies for the cabin! And as we always say, love ya girlie!
