28 weeks...

We are finally back from NY and back to work! I'm completely exhausted and even though we got back on Friday night, our house is a disaster! lol. We were busy priming the nursery, since the furniture should be here this week, going to see Harry Potter and washing and organizing baby clothes. I know house chores should have been first on the list but since we didn't have time to see the movie when we were in NY, it was a must when we got home. I couldn't wait any longer. And instead of washing our dirty clothes from our trip, I washed the clothes we got from the showers. Who cares if I don't have anything to wear...I don't mind, her clothes were way more fun to wash and fold!

 We were constantly busy in NY. I got to see lots of family and friends and was so thankful for everything that we got from our showers. Savannah has lots of clothes, blankets and bibs!!! We ate lots of yummy food and enjoyed being with everyone that we saw. Thanks again everyone!!!

I finally got to meet my best friend, Sarah's, little girl. She is at such a fun age and I loved every minute of being with them. I wish she would just move down here since Gracie and Savannah will be the best of friends. :)

Here is a picture of one of my shower cakes...

I wish I would have had a camera or thought to take pictures with my phone of my other stuff. This is the only picture out of three showers that I have!!! And I didn't even take it. lol

Pat priming the nursery...

This room was a dark burgundy color. Pat finally finished priming it last night. He had to put two coats on it. I told him we should have made the lilac color room the nursery so we didn't have to deal with it!!! lol. He didn't want to since the garage is on the other side of that room and he likes to work in there and didn't want to disturb the baby. He is so thoughtful.

And last but not least, this is me at 28 weeks and 4 days!

My belly sure has grown a bit since my last picture! I can't believe I'm already in the third trimester and starting to go to the dr every two weeks. This baby is going to be here before we know it and I can not be more excited!!! We start our birthing class next Monday, which should be a lot of fun. We are hoping to have the nursery done by the end of the weekend so maybe you'll get to see pics soon!

We finally decided on a crib and ordered it last night. My mom and step dad were nice enough to purchase it for us so it was one less expense we had to pay for. Thanks guys!!! We really appreciate it! =)  I didn't even realize that it had a drawer under the bed until I tried finding a picture to put on here. That will come in perfect for blankets and sheets.

We also purchased the matching changer and the crib mattress. Hopefully it will get here as soon as we get back from NY so we can paint the nursery and set it up.

I think now I will be more eager to finish the nursery since we have the furniture. We still have to order the glider but I found one already and will get that when we get back. We got a lot accomplished this weekend in the nursery. We went through everything and now it is an empty room. It is coming along slowly but surely. lol.

The baby had hiccups Sunday morning. It was so crazy. At first I thought she was just moving around a bunch and then I started paying attention and realized that it was definitely hiccups. Pat even got to feel them, which he thought was totally weird.

 I need to start doing some prenatal yoga soon. I just need to find one that looks cool and order it. My lower back has been killing me. It's so bad now that pain shoots down my right leg. I tried Tylenol but that didn't even touch it. I hope it's not too bad when we are at the airport on Friday cause sometimes it hurts so bad I can barely walk. And we have only 45 minutes to get to our next plane in Chicago. Which I am already freaking out about!!! But at least it's super early in the morning so we shouldn't have any problems.

Hope everyone has a great week! And to all my NY family and friends, I can't wait to see everyone this weekend!!!

26 weeks...

As I'm sitting here eating my brownie with mint chocolate chip ice cream and watching the CMA's, I figured I'd get a head start on my next days post. Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE country music. I always have and I'm sure I always will. I've tried not to like it but I always go back to it. There is just something about that southern twang that I just love. hehe. Now to get back on track...

Tomorrow I am officially 26 weeks pregnant. I am finally in double digit countdown mode. It's so exciting and I know the next 99 days will be over in no time. I am still feeling great and have only grown in the belly area which I am so thankful for and hopefully it will stay that way. My only complaint these days is my lower back. I think it's the sitting all day long that is getting to me. I can take Tylenol but I've never been big on taking pain meds and with being prego I'm even worse. So I guess I'll just suck it up and try to forget about it. It's only a few more months and it is going to be so worth it in the end!!!

Since I'm already in my pj's, I guess I will take a belly picture tomorrow at work and post it. Plus I've been busy tonight so I am going to sit back, relax and watch the rest of the CMA's. Have a great night everyone!

Little baby Maritza...

Our friends, Manny and Arlene, had their baby a little bit earlier than planned. Arlene's water broke Saturday morning and by Saturday night, Maritza was here. She is a beautiful baby weighing in at 4 lbs 6 oz and 17" long. Pat and I got to see her in the NICU yesterday. She's so tiny. She is doing great though. They need lots of prayers to get her home as soon as possible. Arlene was released today. I know it must be hard on them.

Maritza and Savannah will only be a few months months apart so I am sure they will be the best of friends! Congrats, Manny & Arlene! I can't wait to watch our girls grow up together and get into things! We love you.

Moving around...

Little Savannah has been a ninja lately. I never thought I would enjoy feeling a little one kick and punch me as much as I do. I know it will start hurting when she gets bigger but I wouldn't change it ever. It makes me feel calmer. Lets me know she is okay. I just love it!

According to the books, she is over 1 1/2 lbs now. It's crazy how big she is getting and how much bigger she will get before she arrives. And I know I'll be getting way bigger too!!! I had to go to the dr on Tuesday and I actually lost weight from the last time I was there. I just don't get it. She's is obviously growing since my belly is getting bigger. I am sure I'll make up for my weight lose when I go to NY in a couple weeks. :)

Being pregnant is one of the scariest things that I've ever done. You are worried every day. If she doesn't move around a lot, if you get a bad cramp, it just sucks! I am sure it is easier with a second pregnancy because you kind of know what to expect but no book can fully prepare you for this. I am so ready for February to get here so I can see little Savannah and cuddle with her. It is going to be amazing.

Halloween weekend...

We had so much fun this past weekend. The halloween party was a blast even though I couldn't drink. Pat drank enough for the both of us so it was I drank pink lemonade all night. There was some yummy food too! I dressed up as a bumblebee and Pat was too cool for a costume. Pat spray painted the shirt for me and I made the tutu. My first shirt didn't turn out too well because I used fabric to make the black stripes and it didn't stretch so I couldn't get it on. I started freaking out cause the party started in a few hours so Pat was nice enough to help me out! He calmed me down and got it done just in the knick of time.

Saturday we went to Dallas with my parents and Ally and saw the Sabres get their butts handed to them by the Stars. Even though they lost, I still loved every minute of the game. I wish hockey was bigger down here. It was always my favorite to watch. Even though the Sabres lost, and continue to loose this season, I will always be a fan! Oh and the AA center had the worse popcorn ever!!!

Last night, we handed out candy to all the cute trick or treaters. My parents came over and Ally went with my neighbors son to get some candy for herself. Of course I had to dress Benji and Bella up! Benji was a bat and Bella was a bumbleebee. I put on my antennas and tutu too! We ran out of candy in like an hour. I wish we would have gotten more but even if I would have doubled my candy intake I am pretty sure we would have ran out. If only I could have taken the dogs out, I could have scored big time! They are always a big hit with all the kids and they love petting them.

 Now on to the rest of the week! Monday has gone by pretty fast. Once I get home, I have to get stuff together for our camping trip Friday. I am hoping for some nice weather. As of right now, it's low 70s during the day and low 40s during the night. I really wish that it would warm up just a little bit more but as long as it's sunny we should be good. We have a busy week ahead of us but if Pat and I weren't busy, I think we'd have a problem. That's how we are. We like to go do things and have a good time. Hopefully the baby will like to be on the go too!

Hope everyone has a great week ahead of them!
