29 weeks

29 weeks, 7 complete months pregnant, in my eigth month. Time is flying. In some ways I want her to stay in there as long as possible and in other ways I am ready for her to come out. I am starting to get uncomfortable, walking hurts a little bit. She has all of the sudden starting growing and my belly is really popping out. This may be the last picture I post of myself because I hated all the other pictures of myself Worth took, put me in a bad mood last night. I know I am pregnant and I have told many people this when they were pregnant, but it is still hard to all of the sudden see a stomach where there was not one before. I also know that something so wonderful will come from this. I also know that this is something every pregnant lady has felt. We are doing great though. I am so thankful that this pregnancy has been so simple!

On to this gorgeous little dress that came in the mail yesterday. This is from my most precious friend Katie who lives in Michigan and we met one summer at camp. We have not seen each other since that summer, but I still feel so connected to her. She made this dress for Bella Rose and it is the sweetest thing that I have ever seen. Look at the buttons. Thank you so much Katie!!! This dress is also washable and dryable. She is one of the most creative people I know. She has always been such an encouragement to me. Check out her blog. There is a link on here for her. I don't know how to make her name the link.

We have 1/2 the hardwood floor down. It looks awesome! It also looks so good with the color that I picked. Worth is doing such a good job. I wish that I could help him more, but I would have no idea what to do so I make him paninis! We have the living room, hall way, and nursery all done. The only thing left is the kitchen for flooring and then on to the trim.

Thank you Mom!

Thank you to my Mom!!! I went to Greenville for her Birthday and ended up with some gifts for Bella Rose. How fun. To the right is the sheepskin rug for the room. I got it yesterday and it is AWESOME!!! So soft. I think that Bella Rose will like some naps on the floor as well as Rainy!

This is the chandelier that I am so excited about. What little girl would not want a chandelier like this. My sister, Angela, has it up in Taylor's room and it looks so good. Thanks Angela for the idea. The fed-ex man just dropped it off!

And here is the bedside lamp that my mom got us as well. We decided on the pink shade. I was going to do the white, but my mom thought that the pink would be better. I think that I agree! This one is on back order until April though. What a bummer.
Hardwood floors are going down in my house as we speak. We are getting there. I promise I will have a belly shot soon. I just have run out of time for that. I can tell you though that it is getting bigger! Went to the doctor and everything is still going well. My iron is a little low so I guess I am going to be needing some hamburgers.
Ya'll have a great weekend. The weather here is terrific so hopefully we will get outside.

All ready Daddy's little girl!

Someone who is living inside of my stomach right now is already a daddy's girl. That someone would be Bella Rose, and that daddy would be Worth. My husband came into work yesterday with the biggest proudest grin on his face and laid these roses on my desk. I was on the phone with a client and did not pay attention to one word the client said. Worth told me that he got the last pink rose. Sweet right, well then he says that the pink one is in fact not for me but for Bella Rose. So the pink flower to your right is Bella Rose's first Valentine's day present. How sweet is that. This reminds me of my own dad and him ALWAYS bringing me a Valentine's. Whether it was chocolate or a stuffed animal it never failed that I had a valentine on that potentially very lonely holiday for a little girl! Thank you Dad.

(this picture is from my wedding day right before he walked me down the aisle)

On another note the kitchen cabinets are white and they are wonderful. So much better then the old stuff. It feels fresh, it feels clean, and I can't wait for the rest to be done!
What do you think?

27 weeks

I have no picture of me to show you, but this is the diaper bag that I saved for and bought. How pretty is that? I am actually looking forward to carrying it. I am 27 weeks today. Bella Rose is moving like crazy. It is still so wild for me to feel her in there. It is hard for me not to think that my stomach is just upset and not that there is a human in there. So wild! We are still doing great. My belly is getting bigger for sure. I am almost out of my pre-pregnancy pants, but the pair of maternity pants that I have are too big. What a weird stage to be in. I don't have that much longer so to buy a lot of maternity clothes seems strange to me.

The house is coming along. I am really excited. We painted the walls a peach color. In the day it looks bright, in the evening it is warm. My neighbor told me he does not like the color, but I won't listen to him. What does he know :). We painted the kitchen cabinets white. They look so much better and clean being white. They were terrible before. You can see that in other picturues. This is the wood floor that we are going to put down. Isn't it awesome!!!! I love it and can't wait for to be all down.

So we are getting there. I know it is hard to tell, but really we are. So we had the washer and dryer in the kitchen and it sounded like a helicopter was landing when the washer was on spin cycle. Not very condusive with a sleeping baby. So we moved those to the garage and cut a whole in our house and put french doors in. I know that the last picture is hard to see, but those are our french doors!! It makes it so much brighter in there. Now i just need to pick out a paint color. I am having a hard time with that though. I want a peach, but the one I picked looks pink, and I want it to be a bit darker. Any suggestions? I welcome them.

On another note I had a doctor's appointment this week and had to do my glucose test. The drink was not bad, but no one told me about having to wait for an hour. That was a little much. But we are all good. The doctor used perfect a couple of times, so that made me so happy. The weight gain is going well, although I still hate to get on the scale. I know I should not complain though. Bella Rose gave us a flip right before we heard her heartbeat so we got to hear how fast her heart was beating. The doctor again said perfect!

Thank you for loving us!

I don't have a picture to post yet, but I would like to say welcome to the world Davis Benjamin Young. He made is appearance a month early and weighed in at 7lbs 12oz (can you imagine if he went full term). The proud parents, Ben and Jennifer Young are thrilled, although they weren't quite ready. Ben is having to put a crib together before Davis comes home. I can't wait to meet you Davis!!!
