What I have been up to...

Packing up Fourth of July Decor (about time right?)...

Watching movies...

Eating lots of good meals....

Which have led to me getting bigger, or that could be the growing baby inside of me. Maybe both!

Me at 10 1/2 weeks

I have also been working tirelessly on my classroom. I even took the camera today and I forgot to take pictures! I will next I PROMISE!! This is going to be a busy weekend and I have to go back to work Monday...Boo HOO!!

Birthday gifts and sort of pictures

On July 10th I celebrated my 25th birthday. It was filled with fun and excitement as always. It was a lot calmer than usual since I am pregnant, but it was great nonetheless. I want to say a BIG thank you to AMY!!!! She hosted and cooked a wonderful birthday dinner for me. I wish I would have taken pictures (what was I thinking?). The food was amazing!!! Look at what she gave me! I LOVE it! The name of this Willow Tree figurine is Cherish and that I do. I cherish Amy for her amazing friendship and the little one on the way.

Carrie, my sister, gave me this cute set of flameless candles. I have never owned any of these so it was great to get a set. They will come really handy when a baby is grabbing everything in sight. At least these candles will not hurt the baby. Thanks Carrie!
Nick's grandmother got me a gift card for Old Navy and this cute bib! It says "Are these people really my relatives?" Funny Funny!Nick's mom also got me a gift card from Old Navy and this awesome cupcake holder that I have been eyeing for a while.
Look what it has inside!! It holds 27 cupcakes. Perfect for my class!

Here is my 9 week belly shot. Not much difference from 7 weeks. I actually feel a little smaller (maybe less bloated?). Sorry my head is in none of these. I am taking them myself so I am doing the best I can!
Here is a picture of the ultrasound. This will do for now until I can scan it at Amy's house. I am coming girl!! Look closely and you can see all arms and legs!! I love this baby already! I will leave you with a picture of Duncan and his "cigar" and to tell everyone to vote for Michael Adams (Amy's husband) for Clerk of Court!!!

First Ultrasound!

Hello folks! It has been awhile, I know I know! I have been busy working on my classroom. I have made progress, but I don't think I will ever be done or ready. As the title says I had my first ultrasound today. I have to say I was a little nervous because you just never know of all the hundreds of things that can be wrong. I can finally say I am carrying a HEALTHY baby!! The ultrasound was AMAZING!!! This being my first, I was amazed. Nick's face lit up when he saw the picture. A wonderful moment I will never forget. So here are the facts: The heartbeat was 176 bpm (girl?) and 1.9 cm long. I could see the babies heartbeat and the baby was moving around like crazy. I could see the arms and legs moving. That was just WILD to see! I can't believe that it is inside of me and moving and growing so fast. Anyway I was right on with the due date, February 17th! So I am nine weeks today. I have four pictures from the ultrasound and whenever I find someone with a scanner I will post them. The baby is adorable already!! Well I will post pictures of my classroom soon and all my birthday gifts!!

The difference a week makes!

I plan on documenting my growing belly while I am pregnant. So last week, at 6 weeks, I had Nick take a picture. I could tell a little, but nothing major. I felt more bloated than anything.

6 weeks
This is today at 7 weeks and 1 day!! I woke up yesterday and was literally in SHOCK!! What happen while I was sleeping? I didn't expect to feel or look this pregnant so soon. Maybe I am just REALLY bloated!! HA! Needless to say as long as Baby B is healthy I am happy. Tomorrow my mom and I are going shopping for maternity pants. I think I will be in need sooner than later.
I finally got the pictures of the THREE pregnancy tests I took. When I went to the doctor he said "How many did you take?" I said "three." He laughed and said "You didn't believe the first one?" Ha I guess not!
Let's not forget the first baby in the house. I have loved being able to spend all summer with Duncan!!
I know he is so spoiled. This is what he does every night. He has to lay on the red blanket and I cover him with his very own blankie!!
