I Will Never Own a Minivan

I will never own a minivan. That what I said. That's what a lot of people say. People that don't have kids. That all changed for us this weekend.

Noah has been trying to convince me for months that we need a van. I caved in this weekend.

Truthfully, it is more practical. If we wanted to travel to Virginia we wouldn't all fit in one car right now, not with two dogs, patty, Ava, Noah, and myself, and soon another car seat.

An SUV would be nice but it still wouldn't be as roomy as a minivan and they are more costly too.

We scored at the volkswagen dealership. The van we chose was not only in our price range but it offered most everything we were looking for: double DVR systems that can play two different movies (this will be our life saver on road trips), rear camera, Bluetooth, 30G hard-drive to store pictures and music on our touch-screen dash, leather seats... It was an easy choice.

So I guess there are soccer games, recitals, and car pools in our future.

lol, I still can't believe it. I also can't believe how stoked Noah is to be driving it. He doesn't look like the guy to be excited about a minivan, but he loves the newness of it right now I guess.

I wonder what's next on this journey of parenthood :)

Minivan = Megafun!

Grow belly grow

My belly is growing for sure and I still haven't announced our pregnancy. I guess it still doesn't feel real since I haven't felt any symptoms. It's made the whole first trimester go by so fast I didn't even have time to tell anyone. My co-workers are starting to figure it out for sure. A couple have even come ask me if I am. I keep telling myself, ok after the next doctor's visit and I still haven't decided on how to announce it.

I had a doctor's visit today. I have gained three pounds since my last visit two weeks ago and I received some reassurance that I am still indeed pregnant and it's not me imagining it. The baby's heart beat was 142 bpm. I live for those little reassurances! The doctor also told me at my next visit I'll get an ultra sound and we can find out if Ava will have a little sister or brother! I can hardly wait!

Happy Fourth of July

Such a difference a year makes. My girl is so big now.

Hope everyone had a happy Fourth of July!

Love is in the Air

I got a call last night from one of my best friends with some great news! She's engaged!

I'm so happy for her! I have never seen her more happy since she's met Justin last year!

She also asked me to be in her wedding :)

I love when good things happen to people I love :)

Congrats to Amy and Justin!

14 weeks

At work and it's so slow! I hope they'll let us leave early today.

Anyway, I did manage to take my first belly picture this morning for this pregnancy. I should have started sooner but oh well too late.

I wore my maternity pants for the first time too this morning. I'll be needing more clothes soon!

Noah's mom and our nieces are on the road heading down here right now. They should be arriving in about 4-5 hours. I'm not sure what we have planned. I do want to see fireworks so we might head downtown on Monday. The beach may be very hectic with traffic going to and from tybee so I'd like to avoid that at all costs. I guess we'll figure it out once everyone gets here.

Have a safe holiday everyone!
