How far along: 15 weeks today....

Total weight gain: none .... I am still holding (crossing my fingers this last just a little longer)

How much does baby weigh: not sure....but what to expect says:
"Your baby is as long as four and a half inches right now, and weighs a bit over two ounces. Hold a large navel orange in your hand — that's how big your little darlin' is."

Maternity clothes: not 100% needed but for comfort reasons YES!....I am sporting some pants!

Symptoms: none lately, thank you m/s for leaving my body.

Cravings: OJ, Fruit and anything sweet. The sweet is non-stop...although I am doing good 90% of the time to say NO!

Christmas Cards - Shutterfly

Every year I search for the best photo to include in our yearly christmas cards. Last year I was happy to have the perfect picture for the perfect card. Then finding the right place to order them. Shutterfly has been the winner each time.

I can not say enough good things about Shutterfly. My family has enjoyed beginning able to view, download, and even order prints from my photo storage site. My first experience sold me for life....I ordered Lily Anne's birth annoucements on stationary cards and results were better than anything I had ever ordered. I loved it on the thick paper and knew it was definitely a place I would order again. Since, then I have ordered prints and photobooks. The photobooks are neat little gifts if you are looking for that extra personal touch.

So, for 2010 I find myself once again dreaming of cards.... Shutterfly's photo cards. This are at the top of my list right now.

I might even consider making a photo calendar to put on my desk or to give to grandparents for Christmas. Oh, the decisions, so many with Shutterfly's photo gift selection. The possibilities are endless with such a great site!

And saving the best for last.. Bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly:

Happy Anniversary and Happy Veterans Day

Happy Anniversary to the man I love so deeply. Words can not describe how thankful I am to have him in my life.

Seems strange to think that it has been 4 years since our "I do's". The day was beautiful and everything was perfect.... Now, I am more in love with him and have more respect for him than I have ever felt. He is my rock and the center of my family.


Happy Veteran's Day!

We have lots to be thankful for today!!

To all the men and woman in any branch of military thank you! You have given up something so very important and precious so all of us can enjoy the country in which we live. Me and my family are/will be forever grateful!

Weekend Away

Feeling so relaxed and refreshed after our wonderful weekend anniversary adventure. Mich planned a nice semi-romantic and relaxing weekend for a 4 year anniversary treat. He totally out did himself!

So we drove to my moms, she was going to be Lily Anne's babysitter. Since this would be the first time we have ever left her overnight with anyone. I was a little nervous but so looking forward to a break from reality.

Saturday we woke up and got our day started with a little shopping then checked into the hotel! I love Westin Hotels....I love the treatment of the staff and the rooms are always so cozy! Plus, the beds are truly as heavenly as they can be.

Then it was off to dinner at the Sun Dial.....oh the view was wonderful and the food was divine!

After a wonderful dinner, we headed to the Cirque Du Soleil: OVO.....

I must say I love Cirque Du Soliel shows! They transport you into another world for 2 hours...I awe struck at each show I have seen!
So, Monday..... Dr appt time... Woohoo! Everythign looks like it is on track. After a few minutes of searching Dr. Pridgen (whom I love) found the beautiful little heart beating.... happily beating at 158! Music to my ears. So there you have my lovely weekend.
PS....Lily Anne did fabuilous at Nana's and Grandpa'S!

Cheese....and 13 weeks (1 day shy)

Lily Anne and her cheesy grins! I could eat them up all day! Last night she was all smiles....finally. Tuesday was a rough day for her...the day after her 15 month appt with shots. I still hate that they make her feel like crap..and always have. I am happy to say she got a good report. She weighs 22lb 6ozs (40%), and is 32.5inches (98%). She is growing up on me so fast.


Lets see....bringing back some of my old stuff from Lily Anne's pregnancy. The weekly survey.

How far along: 12 weeks, 6 days

Total weight gain: none .... so far!

How much does baby weigh: not sure....but what to expect says:
"What's up with your baby? Well, besides being as large as a peach now, that big old noggin of hers is now about half the size of her crown-to-rump length (that’s one reason why your little peach looks more like an alien from outer space at this point). By the time you give birth, her body will catch up, measuring three-quarters of her total size. What else is going on in there? Tiny bones are beginning to form in her arms and legs, the intestines are beginning to move from the umbilical cord to the abdomen, and the vocal cords are well under construction (the first step toward saying, "I love you, Mommy!"). And because she can move her arms and legs in a jerky fashion, she may be able to get her thumb into her mouth (a habit that may come in handy for self-soothing when she’s a newborn). "

Maternity clothes: somedays, I pull out the pants...then the next I can get into my normal pants. The bloat seems to be going away for the moment.

Symptoms: Just days of nausea and bloat!

Cravings: Orange Juice! I literally can go through a gallon every 2 days! I did the same thing with Lily Anne. I have to buy 6 1-gallon jugs to keep with my habit! My mom bought 5 jugs.

Sleep: it is wonderful...I am in bed shortly after Lily Anne. Yup, I am exciting! However, the trip to the bathroom are crazy but very do-able. However, the past two nights, I have slept horribly since I have a nice fun COLD!

Best moment this week: Friday! I am working a 3/4 day....then going home to pack. Me and Mich are headed to Atlanta for Adult weekend. Lily Anne will staying at Nana's and Grandpa's....I am a little nervous...because this our first time ever leaving her overnight.

Movement: none....that is okay for now.

Belly button in or out: Innie. I think it will be there until the end. It never pop'ed out with Lily Anne.

What I miss: Happy hour....a glass of wine with dinner....

What I'm looking forward to: This weekend! and Monday...Appt #2! I am hoping all goes well

Milestone: 13 weeks...end of 1st tri! I am ready to hang up the nausea and overtireness!
