My Favorite Thing about Pregnancy

I'm now 34 weeks. Only 6 weeks till the due date. It has started to go by really fast, and I'm hoping it continues through this crazy heat we have been having.
I have had a great couple of weeks. We had baby showers, and friends visit. It has been wonderful. Its so fun to see how much this little one is loved already and she isn't even here yet. I'm so thankful for my wonderful family and friends who have done so much for us in this new exciting time.

So I was thinking the other day that it is really easy to list the difficulties of pregnancy especially since I picked one of the hottest summers to be pregnant. But then there are so many great things about being pregnant. Focusing on them helps get through those extremely hot days, and swelling feet.

One perk for me is living healthier. At least for me it is so much easier to eat right, and exercise with the constant knowledge that its for someone else too. Of course feeling your baby move is amazing. Knowing that there is a little person growing and moving inside is indescribably wonderful. But my favorite thing through this pregnancy journey, has been watching my hubby fall in love all over again. The first time he felt her move, I will never forget his face, it was priceless. When she moves to his voice, or he sings to her it brings tears to my eyes. This in turn has made our love even deeper. It's amazing to think this little one is a part of me and a part of him. I can' t wait to meet her and watch him fall even more in love. I know that this baby girl will have him wrapped around her little finger in no time. That is by far my favorite thing so far through this pregnancy. I know its only going to get better when we meet this little one.

To My Music Mann on our Anniversary,

I can't believe 4 years have flown by already. We have been through so much already, and I'm so excited for this next year and adventure we are about to embark on. It's funny you hear about so many pregnant women being frustrated or irritated with their husbands, but it has been the total opposite for me. I'm so thankful for you and all you do. I'm thankful for you refilling my water bottle a billion times, without me asking, so you make sure I have enough water. I'm thankful for you listening to me ramble on and on about baby stuff, what to register for, diapers, clothes, gear, the nursery, etc. I'm thankful for your strength, prayers, and hugs as we make so many decisions. I really do notice all the little things you do as well as the big ones. I can't wait to see you spoil our baby girl, just like you spoil me.
I'm so glad you are my husband, its been an amazing 4 years. Its funny, I have had people ask me how you won my heart. I just have to smile and think, if only they knew how amazing the man I'm married truly is. If only they knew all that is inside him. His many gifts, talents, his ambition, dreams, humor, and great strength. I feel so incredible blessed that you let me see more of that than anyone else has ever seen. I'm also so excited to see it emerge so the world can see too what an amazing man I married.
I love you so very much, and want you to know that 4 years ago today, was the best decision I ever made.
I love you!

The one with the question of a Boy or Girl

So when you get pregnant you are asked tons of questions.
Do you think its a boy or girl?
Well I at first thought its a boy, basically because I always thought I would have a boy first. Then I began to think that it could be a girl. So basically I don't know, but what I do know is that I'm so excited about this little one. This baby is part of me and part of my hubby, and whether a boy or girl,  I couldn't be more excited to meet him or her.
Then you get; Do you want a boy or girl?
Well to answer that simply I want both. I want a little boy who wants to do things "just like daddy" He brings dandelions to me from playing outside. A little boy wrestling with daddy, and showing us his muscles.  His pockets are full of rocks, dirt, bugs, and lots of other things when he comes inside.
I want a little girl who is my "little helper". She will have her daddy wrapped around her little finger. Have tea parties, well and probably play football too (she will be mine haha). Her little curls bouncing, and of course the little adorable clothes!  I want both. So either way we will be thrilled. There are so many wonderful things about having a little boy or a little girl. What are some of you favorite things of having little boys or girls?

The one with 16 and 24

Well I am 16 weeks today. Only 24 more weeks to go.  I can finally eat food, and am so thankful. The past couple weeks have been pretty rough, but I we got through it, and I feel lots better. I'm so excited to welcome this little bundle in September. When we went for our ultrasound and saw this little one  move around on the screen, it all started to become a little more real. If this ultrasound is any indication, this is a very active baby =). I will leave you with this picture of our little one to arrive sometime around September 20th!
