Valentines Day!

So late at posting this, but had to share!
This yummy treat was sent to me on Valentines Day!! My wonderful husband, who knows me well, I'm not a flowers kind of girl but I love chocolate strawberries!!! Blake had these sent the Saturday before Valentine's day, it came at a perfect time. I was sick on the couch and a knock at the door...with a present for me!!! After eating several, i decided i needed to take a picture of these beautiful and yummy creations!!
Thank you Blake...better late than never!!

Sweet Mae!

I am so late in posting about our Mardi Gras! Most schools are out the whole week but Blake and I only had Fat Tuesday off. The weekend before was our town's parade, the Youngsville Parade! Some of our neighbors got together on the corner of the street, right at the parade route, and had a BBQ and fun jump! We had so much fun! Even though I was sick the entire time, I had company with sweet Mae who wanted to sit on Ms. Ryane's lap during the whole parade!
Blake and I always say that we would love for little Payton to be like Mae! We just love her little personality!

Happy Birthday Jojo!!!

Happy Birthday to my sweet godson!! He is 5 years old...WOW, he is so big now! I am so glad God has blessed me with such a wonderful opportunity to be his godmother. I hope Payton has so many qualities that this little man has, I would be so lucky!

23 weeks!!!

WOW!! 6 months already!! Yay!! We went to our 6 month check up last week, she sounded strong with a heartbeat of 155! We also had the anatomy ultrasound which revealed no signs of Spina Bifida, clef lip, or Downs Syndrome. I was also able to count all 10 fingers and toes! Her little face had a little fat on it finally, so she didn't just look like a skeleton! I seriously could see Blake's face structure in hers :) And thank God, it looks like she has his nose!! Ha (a joke only my family will catch!) She measures exactly 16 ounces and if you were to stretch her out she would measure 11 inches from head to toe-tall like her mommy!!!
I'm doing a bit better too, having more "feel good" days rather than "feel crappy" days! Just trying to wrap my head around the whole labor and delivery idea! I am not as nervous about pain as am about the length of time I will be in pain. The average first birth is 18 hours...YIKES!! Although my Dr. anticipates a much shorter labor, I need to prepare myself for what is ahead.
Everything looking and sounding great so far!!! I will try to scan my ultrasound to post Payton's sweet face :)

I know that I have disappeared over the last couple of weeks, I'm still here!! The sickness is better, throwing up on average of every other day and at random, so this is good news to someone who was throwing up all day everyday for what seemed like a long while!! The attack of the migraine headaches has come now. My doctor had warned me of two things regarding pregnancy and headaches-one, people who have migraines before pregnancy can either get them worse and more often OR not get them at all!!! Having migraines since about 3rd grade, I would say I am used to them, WOW, not like this!!! YIKES!! I have had one bad headache for about 4 days now. Some of those days it came out even worse. I now get a headache about every 2 days and can last sometimes through the next episode :( This world of pregnancy has not been kind to me, in fact I have said twice so far to Blake, that I am unsure if I can do this again. Those were during really bad times though, so hopefully my love for children and desire to have many over powers my selfishness to be well.

I go to the doctors next week for my 6 month check up!! Time really is flying!!! I will post my belly!! Yes, I said belly, I finally have one!!!

I am on vacation this week and will be doing Payton's room, cant wait to post pictures!! I am a bit slow on sewing her bedding so that will most likely be posted at a later date!! Ha

Hope everyone is well!! I will post next week!!
