I have a bun in the oven

Yup. And YAY! I am hoping that my bun looks more like a really small child than a yeasty roll and my oven looks a little smaller when this is all said and done, but Nick and I are having a mini-us. We’re pretty excited! I am 14 weeks along and got to hear the heartbeat for the second time today. It’s pretty surreal. The first three months were kind of rough…but I know it could have been worse. Lots of sickness and I had a hard time staying awake to finish a 30 second conversation. A week ago, POP! My energy returned, kind of. And I feel way better, kind of. As long as I feed the beast and don’t get hungry, nobody gets hurt. I am REALLY excited to start showing. Right now I just look like I had a really good Holiday season. I was at the gym last week (yeah, seriously) and I looked down and saw my flabby little belly hanging out. I was mortified and vowed never to return again. Ok, not true. I will go back. Ugh, I must or this can only get worse.

In the beginning, I wanted a girl SO badly because (and this is the only reason) I thought their clothes were cuter. Not even pretending to joke about that. But now, I really think that it is a little dude and I am really excited about it. Whatever “it” (who we affectionately named “Emilio” until we meet it) ends up being, I just hope he or she is a healthy little bean. Nick wants a girl because he heard that they are potty trained faster but he wants a boy because they are better at guitar, statistically. Allegedly. Ha. We WILL be finding out what we are having on March 8th. I am not much of one for waiting around. We figured we would be surprised enough to have a baby that knowing the sex ahead of time will be quite alright.

Nick has started calling Gus “Second Class” to get him ready, but I refuse to accept that will happen. So on that note, I have dinner waiting in the other room and I might lose my cookies all over this blog post if I don’t satisfy this mean, mean monster.

Kelly T. - AHHH!!!! Crissie I am SOOOOO excited for you!! Guess, I should properly respond with that email I owe you;) I won’t deny that when I heard I was getting girl #2, I was uber excited…the clothes and accessories and all that come with them, fantastic. BUT…all the fun of boys is pretty awesome too. Yeah, you’ll melt when you hold that little one in your arms, no matter the gender:)


When’s your DD?

And that mid-stage-pre-real-baby-bump-belly is my least favorite look. Even though I was a bus by the end of both my pregnancies(yeah, like 60lbs+ later) i LOVED my body:) Amazing gift to carry a baby.
