I Did It!

Well, I finally broke down and went shopping. I know that Britt and Tony's wedding is June 12th. 3 days after my due date. But as I hear that 1st babies don't like to come on time. So I broke down and bought a dress this morning.

We went to Target. And I found this dress for only $25. Which was a bargain. Because I've been having some serious issues with maternity clothes lately! I'm not about to spend $300 on a maternity formal dress! Not even for this super formal wedding. But I like this dress. I really like all the ruffles around the neck. And even if I don't get to wear it to the wedding, well I will save this dress for my next pregnancy. :)

I didn't buy any shoes or anything. I'm sure that I have a clutch and shoes somewhere. I'm probably going to wear some flats. I just need to start digging around the closet.

Much Love Illy Giveaway

I just wish I had it in me to be beautiful these days. But I'm days away from becoming a mom. Bigger than a cow and living in the dessert. My hair has been in a ponytail for weeks! But when I saw this giveaway posted on Lola's blog, I just had to enter! Look at these pretty, fun, and bright colors! I hope I win. I'm not much for contests, because I never win. But I'm praying for a miracle here. I need something to get me through these last few days of worry. You know, we still don't have a name for our daughter...

Maternity Clothes

I've been looking for some maternity clothes. But they are so expensive! What I've been looking for are dresses. Perferably, formal dresses. My hubby and I are invited to a few weddings this summer. And I just can't imagine spending $400 for one dress. I have issues just spending money on regular clothes I wear every day.

So I've been a little down. This morning after my hubby went to work, I took to YouTube. And I found this video that shows all kinds of ideas for maternity wear. Well, except for my dress for the wedding. I just have a few weeks to find that. Only I'm invited to a formal wedding being this pregnant.

To be 100% honest, I'm not sure if we'll get to go to the formal wedding. Being that my due date is just around the corner. But I could still wear a maternity dress for a while. I doubt that I'll br wearing any kind of normal clothes until the Fall. But this is a good video. Take a look!

2 Weeks to Go

Dear Baby Girl,

You are getting so big and healthy. We went to the doctor today, and they tell us you're perfect. Guess what? Mommy and Daddy already knew that! Our doctor says it's safe for you to come now. And that you can come at anytime! It makes your Daddy and me very excited!

Your room is looking nice. And everything is ready for you. Daddy went out and bought some extra diapers. Just in case he said. He doesn't want his little girl to not have an y diapers. So we're ready.

Just your Daddy and I need to come up with a beautiful name for our beautiful little girl. Yes, I can say our beautiful little girl. Because we got pictures and a video of your today! We watched you suck your thumb, and get the hiccups. :) But don't worry. Daddy and I are working hard to get ready for you. All of our bags are packed. And everything in your nursery is ready. Daddy and I just need to decide on your name!


PS This week we can't enough butter. I've been slathering it up on everything from corn to pancakes!

3 More Weeks

Dear Baby Girl,

This week we've been enjoying the nice weather outside. It's not really hot yet. Soon you will find out what I mean. June is about the hottest month here. But we're just having nice weather right now. So we've been enjoying it. Me and you go outside and read magazines and drink large glasses of ice water with lemon. So very yummy!

Daddy has been grilling us lots of yummy food. I promise, one day I'll be able to cook like your Daddy. Until then, we let him do lots of the cooking. :) We've been eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies. This week, our favorites have been baby carrots and strawberries. Just not together!

I've also been craving lots of cookie dough. But it's a big no-no while your inside me growing. So that will just have to wait until later. One day you will understand you mommy's love of cookie dough. Especially the chocolate chip kind. Straight from the tube. So yummy! But that will be a few years from now. I'll teach you all about it. Don't worry!

4 More Weeks :)

Dear Baby Girl,

Well, we have 4 weeks to go! I can't believe you have been growing inside me for 36 weeks already! I can still remember the night when your Daddy told me he thought you were inside of me. I was a little panicked. I didn't know what to do.

But since then, life has flown right on by! Daddy and I got married. It was a surprise for everyone. Then, we found out for sure that you were growing inside of me. That's when I knew, I had to take care of you. And protect you from everything. I hope I'm doing a good job. Because I'm trying my best!

This week, I've felt anxious a lot. I've called our friend Lola a lot! She probably thinks I'm nuts. But she is really sweet. You'll soon find out how amazing she is! And I've read lots of blogs. One that makes me a little sad. Because that mommy and baby don't have a good daddy like your Daddy.

We've also been eating lots of stuff! My belly just keeps on growing. But the doctor tells me that's a very good thing. We've been eating lots of watermelon and strawberries. Daddy went and bought us 3 watermelons. And in just 5 days, they were all gone. And poor Daddy, I don't think he got to eat but 2 slices!

Your Daddy has been taking very good care of us too! He calls every chance he can from work. Just to say hi. He likes to talk to you. So I put the phone on my belly. I know you can hear him talking, because you start to kick. Just like you do when Daddy gets home from work.

Well Little Girl, your Mommy and Daddy love you very, very much! I just want you to know that. Nothing will ever change that. And we're very excited to meet you!

1 Month

Dear Baby Girl,

In just 1 month, you're supposed to be here. I'm so excited! But so scared too. Daddy and I have been going to all of our classes. Learning how to get you here safely. And learning how to take care of you when you get here. Your Daddy is doing such a great job!

Speaking of your Daddy, he's very excited to meet you! Every night as we're going to sleep, he rubs my belly and you kick him. :) Daddy reads you a book and then he talks to you as I fall asleep. I really enjoy that. And I know we're going to be a close family.

Daddy and I are still trying to decide on your name. We don't what will fit you. But we're looking for a few names. Because we want to know a few that we like. We know that when we finally get to hold you, your name will just come to us.

This is going to be the longest month. Just waiting for you. Daddy and I finished your room. I know we took a long time. But we wanted it to be perfect for you! We've been washing all of your clothes and putting all of your new things away. All we have to do is what for you. But we want you to take your time. And when you're ready, we're ready to meet you too!
