What a great christmas

Its amazing how much christmas changes once you have childern. While Averie is still to young to enjoy it, I sure did. It was so much fun watching her open her gifts, and watching her eyes light up when she saw her to. Im already looking forward to next year. We are blessed to have such a great family and a wonderful daughter. We look forward to seeing what comes in 2010! Heres a few pics, I forgot my camera so Ill put some more up tomorrow.

Averie and her first cabbage patch doll "santa" faught some old lady at walmart on black friday for this one cause it had blue eyes and dark hair just like her.

Building a Gingerbread house....

What a BUSY weekend!

Hope you all had a great holiday! We sure did! We spent thanksgiving at my parents house and it was a lot of fun. I didnt feel really great but I push through it to enjoy my favorite meal of the year. This year we have a lot to be thankful for good friends, wonderful families, and of course our little princess! It was nice to have a whole day devoted to remembering all the blessing we have in our lives.

Of course we did our traditional black Friday shopping where I picked up a cute little Cabbage patch doll for Averie that has dark hair and blue eyes just like her. I also got some cute gifts for my nieces.

Friday night I faced my fears and took Averie to get her ears pierced. She did so good and looks so cute with them. It took a lot for me to work up the nerve to take her but it wasnt as bad as I made it out to be.
Saturday we took family pictures with my parents and siblings, and a few of just our family. They went really well and im sure they are going to turn out really cute! I finally got a picture of Averie smiling. Its like as soon as I pull out the camera she freezes up but I managed to catch this quick one. I cant believe how fast shes growing.

Now begins the count down to Christmas! Ive got a lot of preparing to do............

Heres a Few Pics.....

oh ya..... its a girl

(2 month pics)

Its been so long i figured I better update. I ended up having a girl..... haha and my last 3 months of pregnancy were horrible. Our little Averie is worth ever minute of it though. I went into premature labor at 24 weeks and was on bed rest for the remainder of the pregnancy. I ended up having an emergency c-section 3 weeks before my due date. She was born beautiful and healthly weighing 5 pd 10 oz and measure 19 inches long. She has dark black hair with big blue eyes. She looks just like papa and he loves it. Everyday is a blessing with her. Shes growing like a weed. She can no longer wear newborn clothes and can almost sit up on her own.

I never imagined loving her so much.

Well its a boy!

Ok, sorry its been so long. After coming home from our cruise (which was amazing) life has been soo crazy. Im trying to finish up this last month of school so I can have some time to relax. We found out right before we left that we are having a BOY!!. My dh is off the wall excited and I cant stop buying him cute little clothes. Im 20 weeks now and I feel like a beached whale. I can still wear some of my pre-preg jeans but Ive noticed my shirts aren't quite covering me like they used to. I cant believe its half way over. I feel so unprepared. We've decided to go for a jungle themed nursery and are going to order the bedding next week. I'm so excited for him to finally come but I need the time to get ready. Next Monday we go for our big ultra sound which is a little scary. It will also be cool because its a 3d one so we'll get to see him really well.

I think my last appt I was up to 6 pds gained which sounds good to me since it feel like im carrying an extra 20 pds. Our boy was measuring a little small last appt so we'll have to keep an eye on him but the dr said he should be hitting a major growth spurt soon.

Heres one for all you moms out there!
Take a load off and have one on me...........

13 weeks.......wow!

Im 13 weeks today. Im shocked at how fast the time went. We are so excited for the next couple milestones (feeling the baby kick, finding out the sex, ect). Sometimes I wish are little one was already here, then I snap into reality and realize I'm no where near ready. I've got so much to buy and so much to learn. I'm just trying to get through one step at a time. Once were back from the cruise we'll work on the baby's room and getting things put together. Im so excited to start shopping for the baby. Ive been so baby hungry the last 6 months its nice to be able to shop for my baby......... Hopefully Monday is the big day. My dr has a knack for telling the sex earlier so we will see what happens!

Which one will it be?

P.S Congrats to Gina and IloveJav, who got BFPs. Im so excited for you guys!

So Ive been a slacker.....

Man time flys when your life is crazy. If it hasn't been one thing, its been another. Im 12 weeks tomorrow and then out of the first trimester. That went fast!! After weeks of complaining about not feeling pregnant, I defiantly got my pay back. I'm sick almost every night and some mornings. I'm hoping it will go away soon, to many meals have been ruined by coming back up. We have are next appt on March 2nd and we'll be around 14 weeks. I'm hoping (i know its crazy) to get a guess on what were having. I know its to early to know for sure but Ive heard of a few people who were able to tell. So far everyone's guess is a girl, so we will see how right everyone is!

Other then the baby we've got cruising on the brain. We leave in a little over 17 days and are scrambling to get all the stuff ready. Buying new dresses and swim suits. I have been a little reluctant to buy any new clothes, Im scared of my growing belly. Ive bought a couple maternity shirts and some pants (omg they are so comfy- I might where them forever). We've been buying a lot of boy baby clothes for my sister and its fun! I cant wait to start buying for my own little one. I did buy this really cute Ed Hardy jacket that will go good for either.

I also found out I'm going to be hosting my sister's baby shower. Its already become something I'm looking forward to. Ive picked out the cutest theme ( I cant tell you its a surprise) and begun buying decorations and planning games. Its going to be a lot of fun! Gives me something to help pass the time.

Hopefully Ill have some exciting news here in the next few weeks, until then...........

Enjoy my growing Belly!!

First appt!!

We had out first appt last night and it was amazing. We saw the little guy or girl in there and heard the heartbeat. It all seems so real now. We are able to relax a little knowing baby m was growing and looked great. We cant wait till our next appt in a few weeks to see how much he/she has grown. Baby M was right on schedule messuring 7w 3d and had a heartbeat of 162.

The new year

Man the new year has started out slow. Back to school, back to full work weeks, and back to no free time. Im taking a full course load this semester and really dreading it. Ive only been to one class and Im counting down till im down. One thing getting me through is our cruise to Mexico in march. It feel like just yestarday we were 150+ days from our cruise and now its just a mere 60 days!! We are just waiting on our passports to show and we are ready to head off. We are taking a Carnival cruise to the "Mexican Riviera" the ports include: Puerto Vallarta, Cabo, and Mazatlan. We cant wait for some fun in the sun!!!
