Man, It's Been Awhile

It's been forever since I have had a chance to sit and blog. I feel a bit lost and I'm leaving so much out.

So here's an update on what's been going on.

1) I never got a chance to write about our trip to San Jose. It was wonderful. Ava was a trooper on the plane (THANK GOODNESS) and the weather there was just perfect. We took two days to go sight-seeing in San Francisco and we were able to hit all the top spots like the Fisherman's Wharf, Muir Woods, and Golden Gate Bridge.

2) When we got back home we had a doctor's appointment to find out the gender of the baby. We wanted to surprise our close friends and family so we decided to invite a few to dinner and reveal the surprise over dessert. It was nice. Noah iced the cake and in the center was either blue or pink icing. Everyone thought we were having a boy. I just knew it was a girl. I was right :) So a house full of girls it is! For now :)

3) I was just thinking today how fast my pregnancy is going. I'm already 22 weeks and I feel like I haven't journaled it enough or taken enough pictures. With Ava, I was a bit obsessed about trying to capture every little thing. I don't want to down-play this pregnancy either because I am equally as excited. I have been feeling great so far. My belly is really starting to pop and I am feeling little jelly bean more and more every day. She is quite an active thing at night :) I have been eating alot and my appetite is never satisfied. One minute I was something salty then something sweet and it goes this way throughout the day every day. If I keep this up I might be 200 lbs by the end which BETTER not happen! I have a wedding I'm in at the end of March so hopefully I can get myself back into gear after the baby arrives. We think we have a first name picked out. Lily. Ava and Lily sound so good together. No middle name yet. Hopefully it will come to us.

4) We aren't going anywhere for Labor Day weekend. I hope to get some things done I've been wanting to catch up on like paying some attention to my yard, sprucing up some rooms in my house, picking out new bedding and decor for the nursery, and reading the Baby Whisperer for Toddlers. You see, my kid is 17 months old and we still have to get up with her several times in the night. I thought at some point she'd get the clue or we would. But as I am getting bigger this getting up thing is wearing this momma out! And Daddy is not a happy camper about this trend either. So hopefully this book can help us out. But other than all that, I want to just relax and enjoy the long weekend :)

20 Weeks

I can't believe I'm halfway through my pregnancy! It's definitely going by fast now. I've been feeling great so hopefully the next twenty weeks will go the same.

Friday was the big appointment to determine the sex of the baby. Everyone thought it would be a boy. Everyone was wrong. So I guess I'll have a house full of girls. Sorry daddy :)

We waited until dinner to reveal the news. We went to Pearl's Saltwater Grille and I devoured 2 lbs. of crab legs :). We made a cake and Noah iced the middle pink so when we cut into the cake it would reveal the gender. It was a cute way to share the news.

Now I can start the shopping and start thinking about names. I love shopping for baby girls! As for names, I have always loved Lily. Ava and Lily. Cute right?

I'll have to write another post on our recent trip to California! We survived four plane rides with a toddler!

Anyway, happy Sunday everyone!
