Week 29

This week was the 1st week back to school and what a bittersweet week it was. I love my job and I truly enjoy going to work everyday but I currently work an hour from home making my total day about 10 hours long... thats IF I go straight to work then home. This makes me conflicted in a few ways: 1. Baby B will most likely attend childcare around the house which means I will have to leave her at the butt-crack of dawn then be an hour away from her until the afternoon 2. Between gas and tolls to get to work and maintenance on the car, I spend a significant amount of mullah on transit. Once I found out I was pregnant, I think twice about all my spending. "Dear Mr President, I think gas should be free" I digress. 3. Having a child gives me increased road rage... yes I said increased. I had quit a bit of RR to begin with. But now when people do something stupid on the road I want to pull over and scream at them "Im *@&#$^ driving with a $*%&* baby you %&#@   *&^% &   @#&$#*." (Replace nonsense symbols with flagrant 4 letter words).
So thats my drama. I know thousands of people deal with it everyday which makes me feel better like I still don't want to deal with it but its doable and will pray for a day when it all comes together.

How far along? 29 Weeks

Maternity clothes? Most of the time. They are just so much comfier
Stretch marks? Still just 1. But Im usually wearing a layer of lotion
Miss Anything? Still sleep.
Movement: Moving more and more everyday.
Food cravings: 
Caffeine (see the "miss anything question")
Gender: Girl
Wedding Ring on or off: On (I mean, I just got it! Who wants to take it off?!?!)
Labor Signs: Occasional contractions  
Belly Button in or out? Still in... but it teases me by occasionally popping out for a moment like when I laugh to hard. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but sleepy
Looking forward to: My next ultrasound in 2 weeks. 14 days = an eternity when Im waiting to catch another glimpse at my baby girl.

Mama & Mini Halloween

I know its a little early but... Its no secret, I love fall and the icing on the Autumn cake has to be Halloween. Iv been sending little vibes down to my mini requesting that she comes out (HEALTHY AND FULLY DEVELOPED) before halloween so we can spend the holiday together. Here are some cute coordinating outfits I found for the Halloween season.

One - Two - Three - Four - Five - Six - Seven

Layla's 1st outfits

Until recently I have not shopped baby cloths. Call it superstition, call it restraint, I avoid the children's clothing section by all costs. One day I was doing a little shopping for myself and I passed by these two little outfits and my heart melted. I just had to have them... and so begins the story of how Tim and I go bankrupt buying adorable cloths for our daughter.

I love these 2 because we call Layla-Kay, Layla Bear (as in LAYLA BERRieum). 

The last 3 outfits were purchased by my mom... we are all going down together.

Week 26

 Sticking her tongue out and she has her eyes open. She kept them open for most of our 30 min ultrasound. Doesnt it look like she's laughing? lol
 I asked the Dr how everything looked in there and the Dr replied "well the baby is saying its thumbs up in there so it must be good". The Dr thought this was hilarious (honestly I didnt see what she was talking about until she showed me the picture AND pointed at it)

How far along? 26 Weeks

Maternity clothes? More and more every week. I love when people say "I wore all my regular cloths when I was pregnant"... makes me feel Super Sized. 
Stretch marks? One!!!!!!
Best moment this week: 26 week ultrasound 
Miss Anything? Still sleep.
Movement: Yes. I have a theory that she likes excitable stories. When people are telling stories with enthusiasm she seems to wiggle around a lot. 
Food cravings: 
Caffeine (see the "miss anything question")
Have you started to show yet: Definitely but I still here “you look so tiny” all the time. LIES!!! :o)
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: I think I had my 1st Braxton Hicks contractions this week. 
Belly Button in or out? On its way out
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but sleepy
Looking forward to: Fall. Im ready for the weather to change so I stop looking at teenagers in mini shorts and a cut offs.
