Day 1

Well i slept pretty crappy last night without my hunny to snuggle with, but today i have been destined to have a good day! i cleaned, went on a really long nice walk, and went to blockbuster and rented Whip It and All About Steve. which with my husband hardly would have gone for had he been there ..haha.. as i was standing in the check out line the girl behind me told me that i was really pretty.. aww! melted my heart! i havent heard those words since ive packed on a bout 15 haha. and then she was like oh your pregnant congrats how far along are you? and i replied that i was almost 22 weeks and i was having a boy. She made me feel good. most of the comliments i get these days are "WOW your belly is getting so big!" or "Your getting really big really fast!" which are hardly compliments. Big pregnant ladies may have a baby in their tummy causing them to be big but it still doesnt help their morale when you say stuff like that because they are battling the fact that they have put on more weight than ever in their life! anywho. i have movies to watch!

blog to ya later

First Night Alone

Well my husband left tonight to go work in Arizona. He is going to be gone for 2 whole weeks!!! what the heck am i going to do without him? he is my rock! he keeps me sane here in a town where he is my only friend! it defiantly helps me realise what i have, he is my best friend, my secret keeper, my cuddle buddy, my hairstylist, the person who i cry to, but mostly he is my Husband and my one and only lover! i miss him so much already! But im going to try to keep myself busy with house work, movies, taking walks and working. im making a goal to try to be healthier for my little man. it doesnt help that i made like 2 dozen cookies today. oh well.. the past is the past! im going to walk everyday. even if it is 20 degrees outside people who follow my blog need to help keep me to my word and check on me! k? that means you! im probably going to blog about my day to day business while he is gone to help keep me sane. oh and this is my super mom pose!

This was a beautiful sabbath morning.Braden and i got ready he went to home teach then OUR home teachers came then MY visiting teachers came! it was a pretty eventful day! While we were sitting in sunday school Braden was playing with my belly and he woke this little boy up and he started kicking! so Braden put his hand on my belly to feel it and all of a sudden Braden looked at me with the widest eyed smile i had ever seen and was like i can feel it! super happy like. that happend about 2 or 3 times before my little man got tuckered out and fell back asleep. It always makes me so happy and proud that Braden is so excited to have this little baby. He is always talking about having him and rushing me to the baby department to look at baby stuff and tell me what he is going to tach him and play with him Braden already decided (on his own) that when our baby can walk we will buy him a dirt bike! hahah. it is sooo exciting and fun to prepare for him. we cant wait to meet you baby Rhiot!... or Ridger.. were not entirely sure who you will be.. Love Mom

Belly Laughs!

Well its official. i am now half way through my pregnancy! woo hoo! i feel for all of the brave moms who have done this before me. Although my husband doesnt believe me, its pretty tough work growing a baby.haha.. he thinks he did all of the hard work..psh. my belly is increasingly growing in size and it is now visible to tell that i am pregnant! another woo hoo!(finally out of the awkward stage) again, mothers before me are nodding their heads thinking that they know exactly how that is.. the stage where youve put on a few but no one knows that its a baby, the stage where you wear your largest shirts to hide your midsection. Now i just have to deal with the fact that my once cute inny bellybutton is trying to pop itself out there. like the baby is going to try to make his escape through it or something. haha. oh motherhood.. i cant wait to meet my little son!

me and my wonderful husband just had an ultrasound appointment and
she put the goop on my belly and moved the magic wand around on it and got a good position and shes like well what do you think it is and i could see two balls and a weiner! i was like its a boy!!! and shes like yep!! you guys are having a boy! Braden was beaming with light because the whole pregnancy he has wanted a little boy! we have been calling the baby a he or a him for this whole time. before we left i said if we find out its a girl we are going to have to apologize to her for calling her a boy this whole time. hahah. but we are so excited to have him! i now feel out numbered! im going to have to grow eyes in the back of my head my son will be into everything if he gets anything from his dad or uncle Boone! i am sooooo excited! yay!
