Blog Tag

One of my role models when I was growing up is now living in Texas with her hubby and adorable little boy. Life changes so quickly! Gone are the days when I envied Kirsten's blue and white Adidas sandals. Even when I finally got some, they never looked quite like hers! That's my small tribute to Kirsten, who tagged me... Here goes:

1. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and have not thought about a single "baby" thing yet. No names, no nursery stuff, no future plans, no NOTHING. Does that make me a bad almost mom??
2. I absolutely hate being cold, but would love to live in Boone one day.
3. I am terrified of deer. It's completely irrational, but I can't help it.
4. I love coffee.
5. I would much rather sit and chat with someone one on one than be in a large group of people hanging out.
6. The TV gets on my nerves too often... It gets in the way of quality time!!
7. My fella is home and I am running out the front door right now!!

I don't even know of 7 people to tag... I'm far too new at this. So, I'll tag just a few: Chantal, Sheila (she has tons of time on her hands with a toddler and a newborn at home), Jon (because he'll just roll his eyes at me), and Cheri.

Sitting and Waiting

I'm sitting at home in my favorite recliner, waiting (not so patiently) for my hubby to get home. He took middle school and high school kids on a retreat this weekend, and I didn't go this time. I have been missing him like crazy. Life just isn't right when he isn't here! Of course, I've been by myself many times before when he has gone on youth trips. Maybe my issues are because I'm pregnant this time- I just don't like it when we aren't together other than when we are at work!

My sweet sister came to Richmond for the weekend to be my road trip partner yesterday. One of my college roommates got married yesterday, and G and I made the trip for Caroline's wedding. It was such a beautiful country wedding, although very cold (38-4o degrees and the WHOLE thing was outside!!!!!!!). It was so much fun to have that much time with Gretch and to have her all to myself! I'm so thankful she was willing to come with me to be my date!

Back to staring out the window...

16 weeks...

I'm behind the times. Here's the picture from 12 weeks. Not particularly attractive (see previous post)... Hopefully it won't take as long for the 16 weeks picture to appear!

Today I wish I had more maternity clothes. They are too expensive to buy like I would buy normal clothes, but I sure am bored of these already. Black pants with a few different tops. Gray pants with a few different tops. And there is no one in this city who has been pregnant recently who could pass any on to me!!! I am in search of a maternity consignment place. Richmond isn't too great for these kinds of things...!!!

On another note, we go back to the doctor in 2 weeks. Why? I'm not really sure. I don't really know what's supposed to happen at this appointment. We heard the heartbeat 2 weeks ago- AWESOME- and in December we'll find out if Little One is more likely to be a football player or a ballerina! But, I don't know about this appointment. And all the while, I keep expanding. And if I can find the camera or the camera cord, I will post a 12 week belly picture. Yes, that's 2 weeks late. And really, it mostly just looks fat. Kinda disappointing!!
