nie nie

The other night Brandon had to work late...
So we,
we meaning me and baby.
we do everything together,
started reading the first 3 chapters of this...

We loved
 loved it.

I can't wait for the full book to come out next week.
It made me even more excited to be a

My week according to instagram.....

1. Since Brandon's from Texas it seemed only appropriate that he receive a gun for his birthday.
(its his baby)
2. Brandon's family came to town, so we were lucky enough to get to spend some time 
with Jace and London. This baby is so lucky to have them as her aunt and uncle.
3. Playing Kinect is fun....but not matter how hard you try, you always look ridiculous doing it!
(especially when you're pregnant)
4. Baby (really just me) was craving a burger and fries, 
so Brandon took me on date to Red Robin, aka a pregnant women's paradise.
5. Enter third trimester. I would just like to take this opportunity to take back all the times 
pre-pregnancy when I called myself fat. 
(except for ages 13-16, when I actually was fat)
6. Spring Wreath- I suddenly have the urge to do crafts every single day of the week.
Thanks Pinterest.
7. Sundays have now become "Waffle Sundays" in our home. 
8. My sweet Husband is so good with babies. Every time our friend's bring 
their baby over, he picks her right up and takes care of her. it makes me smile.
9. One morning I woke up to a sweet surprise. I'm a lucky gal.

This is what I see every time I look down.

Some people try to tell me that my belly is little,
but I think they're crazy,
cause I feel gigantic.

She is kicking more and more these days
and I am loving every minute of it.
Sometimes i'll do little things that make her kick or move
just so I know she's still in there and that she's ok.
(bad mom?)

Poor Brandon has become very good at foot rubs, back rubs 
and trips to the store to buy me my favorite treat.
 He even pretends to act interested when we go through all 
her baby clothes and I make him pick out his favorite outfit.
He's a trooper.

                                                   oh man,
 Sometimes 12 weeks feels so far away, 
and sometimes it feels like its just around the corner.

Happy Birthday

Today is Brandon's birthday,
and I could not be more thrilled to spend an entire day
celebrating my favorite person!

I am so lucky to have him in my life.
He makes me smile, 
and most importantly
 a better person.

Our celebration plans include the following:
opening presents
a few surprises 
more eating

I kinda wish that everyday was Brandon's birthday!

Happy Birthday BM,
may all your wildest dreams come true!!

Dear baby,
I love looking at this picture of you.
It hangs on our refrigerator,
(a place I visit quite often these days)
and I always just stop and look and smile
and think...
What are you going to look like?
Who are you going to act like?
Will you have my little tiny hands?
Will you have your dad's perfect nose?
and most importantly
What color will your hair be?
I can't wait to meet you.


Dear June,
Please come quickly this year,
there's someone special i'd really like to meet.

An Impatient Mom
