Tia & Scott's Baby



Well, Tia had a little girl yesterday evening and everyone is healthy and doing well. She is 7 lbs. 10 oz. and is 21 inches long. I got to see a picture of her this morning but it was on my cell phone. As soon as get some more pics I will post them on the blog. I haven't been told what the name of the baby is yet. I'm not sure if they have decided. It's pretty exciting and we are happy that she finally made it into the world. Yippee!!!

Nothing much has Changed


There's really nothing new. I'm feeling great and enjoying food. Yesterday on my way to WalMart, I stopped at Starbucks and got a peppermint hot chocolate. It was delicious! I haven't had one in such a long time. I thought that winter would get away from me before I could enjoy one but it was perfect timing. I haven't posted any pics of my belly because I don't have much of a belly yet. I'm not really showing but eventually I will get some photos as things start to change.

I'm going to Pensacola next Wednesday to visit my parents and to do some baby shopping. There's a HUGE consignment sale on baby things at the Fairgrounds and we're going to check it out and maybe get a few things. It should be fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Tia's Having a Baby!


My sister-in-law Tia was due February 25 with her third child. Well, today is the 27th and she is finally going to have the baby! We have been waiting and waiting for this baby to arrive. She didn't find out the sex of the baby so it is quite exciting and we can't wait to hear if it's a boy or a girl. Hopefully, we will know something later today. Hoo-Ray!!!

Things are Good!


I am feeling better and better everyday. It's nice to be back to my normal self again.

I fianlly bought my first pair of maternity jeans the other day. I'm still able to wear my regular jeans and I will try to wear until they just don't fit anymore. I mainly wanted a pair here for that one day that I get up and my jeans don't fit. I got them from the Motherhood store. When my mom was here, we went shopping for maternity clothes and everything was huge. I was basically swimming in them. These are really cute and the other clothes they have there are also cute. Plus, they are super comfy!

We got the crib put together and as soon as the room doesn't look like a mess, I will take some pictures. It looks really nice in there. My mother-in-law got a turtle night light for the baby's room. It shines 8 constellations on the ceiling and can be either amber, green or blue. I just got it in the mail today. It's awesome!

Second Appointment


We had our second appointment today and found out that everything is good. No picture of the baby today. :( We'll have to wait until I'm about 20 weeks. However, we did hear the heartbeat and it sounded normal. Really fast. I also found out that my blood type is O negative. So, when I'm about 28 weeks along, they'll give me a shot to prevent my body from making anitbodies against the baby. No big deal. At least everything is normal and going smoothly.

Feeling Good!!


I have been feeling pretty darn good lately. I'm still tired at times but my appetite is returning and I'm able to eat normal foods again.

My mom came up this past weekend and we did some baby shopping and ate out (yummy). I haven't done that in a really long time and it was great! We got a crib for the nursery and I have decided on the fabric to decorate the room. I love turtles and since we're not finding out the sex of the baby, we needed to find something gender neutral. I am so excited about this fabric. We're going to have window valances, a crib skirt, and use some of these turtles as art for the walls. It's going to look great! As soon as we start getting the room ready, I will take some pictures.

The Worst is Over


Well, I think the worst maybe over. Hoo-Ray!!!! My appetite is starting to return and the nausea has pretty much disappeared. That was the worst several weeks I think I have ever experienced. I actually had enough energy today to get the floors swept, rugs vacuumed, & kitchen cleaned. I am so proud of myself. However, once I was done, I was extremely tired so I took a nice long nap with Abigail. She's so great to nap with and she's good at it. I think tomorrow I will tackle our room that has been neglected for quite some time. I am just relieved to finally be off the couch and functioning like a normal person again. Go me!!!

Still Improving


I feel like I'm getting better everyday. However, I did have a minor set back this past weekend. I guess I got some kind of stomach bug because I wasn't able to keep much food down. It started Friday and continued onto Saturday but yesterday I felt better. It was definitely the strangest thing. Thursday, I was just starting to think that I was feeling better and I was planning on cleaning on Friday. That obviously didn't happen. I'm not 100% better especially since I feel like I'm starting over but I do think the worst is over. (I'm keeping my fingers crossed!)



There was alot of disappointment here last night. We were not happy about the superbowl game. Eric especially was quite angry about the Giants winning. However, we still have our flag hanging outside in support of the Patriots. They had a great season. There's always next year!

Superbowl Sunday


We're getting geared up for the big game tonight. Eric's parents got us some Patriot shirts and a flag to show our support. We are definitely ready to see the Patriots win tonight. Go Patriots!!!!!
