Practice Makes Perfect

Today, David and I practiced being parents.  We had the PERFECT pretend baby...

[oh darn it, we forgot to buckle her in...
good thing we have 91 more days to practice!]

Oh to be pregnant.

Like a lot of things in life, being pregnant is much more beautiful and amazing on other people.  I think I idealized how it would be.  As if being pregnant would give me this ethereal feeling all the time.
{Like life would be a sweet sigh and a glass of lemonade}

While I can't say that every moment has been enjoyable,  I really can't complain.  [Apparently I do pregnancy pretty nicely.]  I've puked once (thank heavens), had your average bought of morning sickness, gotten some headaches, and gained some weight.  I definitely have those oh so lovely mood swings and more than my fair share of bathroom trips. But all in all, {and bare with me here...I'm trying to be more positive} I'm lucky.

 Don't get me wrong, pregnancy is definitely not all fun and games.  I don't want to make it seem like I have this perfect life going on here.  I haven't had a lot of physical symptoms but mentally and emotionally pregnancy has been a struggle.  I fear and anticipate the arrival of this wonderful little girl.  I feel guilty at times for my doubt and fear.

Life is funny that way.  You never really know if you made the best decision.  Life has so many pathways and sometimes I feel like I'm just winging it!  But I've recently discovered a secret that makes me feel so much better.

No one else knows what they are doing either.

This idea makes me smile and so does the dance party going on in my abdomen :)

New Year's Resolution

It has been a long time since I have posted on here, my apologies.  But in honor of the year, I figured I would tell you my [NUMERO UNO] goal for 2011.... 


I know, most of you (whoever you are that read this) already know that David and I are expecting a baby.  But regardless, I have to post about it!

I am, as of today, 25 weeks pregnant.  And to be more specific I have exactly 105 days until my due date, April 18.  In November we had the chance to see our baby for the first time and found out that we will be having a GIRL!  Everything looked wonderful on the ultrasound.  We even got a thumbs up from our little one.  Here are a few pictures:
