Photobucket I can't believe how big my baby girl is getting! She is talking and understanding so much and soon she is going to be a big sister!! She has been our baby for almost two years now and it's hard to believe that she will no longer be the baby in the family. But I love this sweet and funny little girl and I am so loving watching her grow. 

 Love this sweet little girl of mine!!

Photobucket it's that kind of monday. the one where it was insanely hard to get out of bed and start the day off right. so instead, we've decided to eat breakfast on the couch and catch up with some of our favorite PBS shows today. 

happy monday!

hope you have a great week!!

31 weeks

Photobucket you can see previous bump pics here. Photobucket Here we are, in the single digits of weeks counting down till baby arrives! It's crazy to me how fast time is really flying with this pregnancy. I am in full nesting mode and want to clean and scrub everything in sight. And afterwards, I want to do it all over again! I am definitely feeling a lot of pressure in my lower back and will have some pretty strong braxton hicks contractions through the day. When that starts to happen I start to panic just a little bit that I will soon be in labor and have to go through all that again. I don't feel ready for that. But the baby is doing well and growing right on schedule and I love feeling this little one move. 

Needless to say, I am super excited to meet this little one and bond and love him or her. It's crazy to think that we will be come a family of six in less than 9 weeks! 

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go scrub something! ;)

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

 wow! already to the 29th week of this pregnancy! time just seems to fly by for me right now! but i am definitely getting super excited to meet this little one! less than eleven weeks to go! today i had my wonderful glucose test done. i am not a big fan of this and it doesn't matter what flavor or how cold that drink is, i always feel like puking afterwards. hopefully all tests well and we don't have to do it again! it was wonderful listening to that beautiful and strong heart beat. 154 bpm! now we are on to dr. appointments every two weeks! before we know it this little one will be here!! can't wait!!
