Lots of changes since my last post! For one, my dear friend Courtney got engaged...
Checking out the ring
Happy, happy couple :)
Congratulations Courtney & Josh! I am so excited for you guys. Courtney, thanks for letting me be a part of this season with you. It's a privilage to be your friend!
My sweet husband threw me a SURPRISE PARTY for my birthday, and boy, was I surprised!!! I thought we were just going out to a movie with Dad and the Jones', but when I showed up at the house, all my friends and family were there! It took probably a good half hour to sink in and get over the shock. What fun we had that night! Everything was decorated in browns and golds (my favorite colors), there were yummy foods, and great company! After hanging out a while we got together a game of charades, boys vs girls. Girls won!
Here's the video of me walking into my surprise party!
What a fun birthday!!!!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST....
He's in there!
The pregnancy has been going very well. The baby is moving and kicking all the time now. I've been having fun watching the reaction of friends and family who get to feel him move. So special!
The picture above Tara took of me about a month ago. I framed it and gave to Ryan on Father's Day :)
Anyways, I'm at about 28 weeks now! Time has flown by. Lately I've been just itching to prepare for the baby in some way. Just buying him clothes was getting expensive :) I found out that Babies R Us discontinued the crib bedding...grrr. I called down there, and for the first time in my life, gave them a piece of my mind... which really didn't do any good because they said it's the manufacturer that discontinued it, not them. Anyways, I did an extensive internet search and found it on another website. Ryan bought it for us! However, this morning we received an email saying "this item is on backorder but will be shipped as soon as possible". Who knows, we may not get it at all :(
I have another big appointment next week. We have a growth ultrasound, the blood/glucose test, and a rhogan (sp?) shot. Yikes. Talk about bittersweet. However, it will be so great to see Owen on the screen, especially since I've been feeling him so much and wondering how he's moving, where he's positioned, and what part of him keeps hitting my bladder, haha.
I also bought my very first maternity items this week. First, Ryan bought me the Bella Band (in black lace!). I can now wear some jeans and skirts I couldn't before, yay! It is super comfortable and does the trick. I also went to the maternity store for the first time and walked out with this:
which I am tempted to wear everyday because it's so comfy. Got one in a really dark wash too :)
Well, those are the general updates. Here's the latest belly pic of me taken last night (which by the way was a fabulous date night with Ry! We went to The Keg for steak and then to see the Incredible Hulk which was a FANTASTIC movie!!!)
Baby Owen, we're crazy about you already and can't wait for you to come out!
