update & rant

Well, we finally got to hear the heartbeat of our little bean!! It was amazing. I actually ended up having an ultrasound as well, just to verify how far along I was. According to that, I am a week earlier than they originally thought. So I could have my due date changed, but the dr. has to check everything out, so we won't know until my next appointment what she says. Anyways, thought I would share the picture because I am super excited about it!! I don't have a scanner, so I just took a picture of it from my fridge. :)
It was just crazy to see it moving around in there! And move it did! Wiggly already! Can't wait until I can feel it moving. :)

Ok, on to my rant...maternity clothes. Specifically Old Navy and Gap. Seriously cute stuff. Most of which is available online only, and return by mail only. Which means you pay $7 for shipping to GET it, then another $6 to RETURN it if it doesn't fit. So dumb. It would be one thing if it came with a free returns label, but when you have to pay to return it, that is just bs. And the fact that most of the things I want I won't even be able to see in the store when I do finally get to go shopping is ridiculous too. I totally see where my sis-in-law was coming from when she said maternity clothes shopping stinks. Don't get me wrong, I am excited, but I know I will get plenty frustrated. Another thing that bites is how much it all costs. I guarantee I will have to spend over $30 to get a decent pair of jeans. Ughhhh...oh well, only time will tell! Maybe I'll luck out and find a store with a good selection!! :) Wish me luck.

Sawyer Ben

I took my cousin Sawyer's senior pictures a few weeks ago. He is so photogenic and has the most gorgeous blue eyes! Just wanted to share a few favorites!

long delay!

It has been a crazy month! Hard to believe it's already September! We have been keeping busy, but it still seems like I haven't gotten a lot done. I have hardly scrapbooked at all this summer. :( I've had the same page laying out for like a month, with picture, paper, etc., all ready to go and haven't done any more than set it all on the table.

We do have one good thing to share! We are having a baby! Due on March 29th. So that might explain some of my absence! :) We've been busy telling our families and friends, so the news is out now! I've been feeling really good so far, no morning sickness or anything. I get cramps off and on, and I can tell I'm more tired and hungry at times. I'm about 10 weeks along, and we have our 2nd dr. appt in a couple weeks, which I am super excited about b/c she said we would hopefully be able to hear the heartbeat by then! Since I haven't been feeling icky or anything, it's all been sort of surreal, like there's no evidence that I really am pregnant, so I'm looking forward to hearing that whoosh-whoosh because then it will hit me for sure! I am just excited beyond words to experience being pregnant and can't wait to meet our little one. I am praying that everything goes well and we have a healthy, happy baby next spring!

I took some senior pictures for my cousin Sawyer a couple weeks ago too, and will share a few of those soon too, when I am finished editing them!
