Dr. Appointment

On Friday I had a doctor appointment as well as my 28-week sonogram (my weeks vary from where the dr. has me...but only a couple days). Anyhoo, I invited my mom to come with me because I knew she would be super excited to meet my doctor and to also see a sonogram first hand! My appointment with Dr. Hampton Richards went really well - no major news. My homework now is to start finding a pediatrician - so any recommendations are welcome! The sonogram went well - Ryan has everything is suppose to and is tracking along as scheduled. The tech that did the sonogram went really fast and my mom and I couldn't see everything that well - we have some pics but there is one we can't really tell what it is. Little Ryan did have his hands up by his face so that could be one of the reasons it was difficult to get a good look.

This is a shot of Ryan's profile - you can see his nose and lips. His hand is also up there by his face so it looks a little funky. 

Here is a nice shot of his little leg

And his foot

Here we have a body shot with his arm in front of his face

And this is the last one that says it's his face but I don't really see it - so let me know if you do!

29 weeks

The bump is getting bigger! Ryan is the size of a butternut squash this week - 2.5 lbs. He has been super active and it's so fun to feel him kicking. Tomorrow we have a sonogram and I am so excited! My mom is coming up to Dallas to go with me - we will meet with Dr. Hampton at 11:30 then the sonogram is at 1:00. In other news - I signed Kevin and I up for the Basics of Baby Care & CPR class as well as a tour of the Labor & Delivery area at the hospital. I didn't sign us up for the Lamaze Preparation for Childbirth class but am now debating that. Dr. Hampton said we would be fine - that the nurses will tell me everything I need to know. However, as the delivery date gets might ease my nerves a little bit.

Thank You's

I am working on creating thank you cards for all of Ryan's baby shower gifts but I have a slight delay - I left my paper cutter in Houston! Oops! My mom is bringing it on Thursday so hopefully I can get them in the mail soon! I love making cards and invitations - and have lots to keep me busy this Summer! So excited!

Happy Anniversary!

Update: So my husband is amazing and so sweet. Yesterday we planned to celebrate our 2-year anniversary by having a nice dinner at Ocean Prime. I didn't really plan on anything else so I was really surprised when he had these beautiful flowers delivered! And then to top things off he had done his research and found out that the 2-year gift is cotton - so he went and bought Ryan and mommy some cute little cotton outfits - so sweet! I love his little outfit for Ryan! Kevin is also pretty darn good at picking out cards - they are usually pretty humorous but lately they have been really sincere. Plus I really love chihuahua so I thought the card he picked out was really great! What a great two years we have had! It really has gone by so fast but I have loved every minute of it!


Today is our two year anniversary! The past two years have gone by so fast and have been so amazing. So excited for our future together and to add little Ryan in August!

Yummy food!

A sweet little candy bar!

28 weeks

7 months today! 3 more months until little Ryan arrives! This week start the beginning of my 3rd trimester - hopefully things will continue to go as smoothly as they have been. Today is Jennifer's 28th b-day - I am about to meet Jen, Ashely & MK at the spa to celebrate. We are all getting massages, eating lunch then lounging by the pool. Then later we are meeting up with some more friends and heading to the Astros Game! So fun!

Little hiccups

I am down in Houston this week relaxing with my parents and friends. Ryan has been very active down here and Yia Yia T loves feeling his kicks! Yesterday morning when I woke up Ryan had the hiccups! Sweet little hiccups - so cute!!

27 weeks today! Little Ryan is the size of a head of cauliflower and he is sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes and even sucking his fingers. His brain is also very active now.

1st Day @ Home

So today was the day - the day where Kevin woke up and got ready for work and I stayed behind....and it was so wonderful! I actually woke up 6:30 this morning because Bob needed to go out and then we couldn't fall back asleep. We chatted with Kevin while he got ready for work, then I headed to the gym for a nice little morning workout. The first item on my list as a domestic engineer was the termite inspection - Terminix has been trying to schedule this for a while but it was too hard for one of us to be here during the day - so today was perfect. Anyhoo, good thing we finally got it done because surprise surprise - we have/had termites!!! What a fun little unexpected expense - haha! We got it all taken car of today so it was nice to check that off the list. After the termites were taken care of I was able to get out and run some errands before happy hour with friends! No worries - I didn't forget about Kevin. I picked him up some yummy food from Central Market that he was able to just heat up. When I got home we had some chocolate ice cream together and now its time to call it a night!

Babymoon & the Desert

We had a wonderful day yesterday - we got out and saw a little bit of Scottsdale and then enjoyed the rest of the afternoon here at the pool. The pics above are taken here at the hotel - it's really weird not to see any grass! Oh, and yes, that is a paradise bakery bag in my hand....I had to stop and get some chocolate chip cookies for myself while we were at the mall. We were pretty exhausted last night so we stayed in and just ordered pizza. This morning we hit the gym for a nice little workout and next stop is the pool. Kevin is going to head out to lunch with one of his buddies and I am going to head to the spa. Dinner tonight is a T. Cooks at the Royal Palms - we hear it's amazing, so we are looking forward to it!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all my favorite mommies had a wonderful mother's day yesterday! Here is a cute card that Kevin surprised me with yesterday...from little Ryan!

26 weeks

I figured it out! wohoo! So this was last Thursday - I am definitely showing now! Three and a half months left....I think I am going to be huge! haha

Babymoon in Scottsdale, AZ

Kevin and I made it to Arizona yesterday afternoon and arrived at the Sanctuary on Camelback mountain around 2:30.  We are really loving this resort - it's the perfect little last getaway before little Ryan arrives. The weather here is amazing - super hot during the day but cool in the mornings and evenings. Our rooms are really cool - a chic modern style and super spacious - they are all basically little mini suites. I will post pics at some point, but I am still having that connection issue. It's also very peaceful - we are sitting on our little porch/balcony right now (kevin is enjoying his coffee while reading the NYT and I have water and my computer) and all you can hear all the birds chirping around us. 

Yesterday we ventured out to the pool for a little while and then had dinner at the restaurant here called Elements. We had a little time before dinner and went to the hotel bar Jade - which is just as swanky as it sounds. The drinks really looked amazing! Kind of wish I could have had one! Anyhoo, it's Sunday morning and Kevin and I just got back from the Sunrise Stretch class that they offer to guests. Evidently no one else was interested this morning so Kevin and I basically had a private session which was nice since the instructor altered the class to do only the things that I felt comfortable doing. There are a ton of other classes to participate in including all different types of yoga, pilates, water fitness, cycling, tennis and you can even do outdoor bike and climbing tours as well. Some are additional fees, but there is a lot that is free - so its pretty cool. Today we are going to venture out into Scottsdale and try a place called La Grande Orange Grocery that one of Kevin's friends recommended for lunch.  I think we will plan on hitting up the spa at some point (the mommy-to-be-massage has my name all over it!) and of course just continue to relax!

It's Thursday - where's my belly pic??

As most of you know tomorrow is my last day of work - its kinda crazy actually. I still can't believe that I won't be going to work every day or seeing all my work buddies - I am going to miss that! Anyhow, I had to buy a personal computer and I am now I am a Mac user- woot woot! So the point is that I am trying to download my belly pics for today and I can't seem to get them on my new computer - boo! My camera keeps turning off when its connected (and yes, its charged) - grr! Soooo...hopefully tomorrow I will have that pic up!

Dr. Appointment

So we went back to Dr. Richards today for our monthly check-up and everything is still going great! I am up another 5lbs - I really thought I had gained more so I was pleasantly surprised! Our next appointment is in three weeks and we get to do another sonogram too. He said I really didn't need a 28-week sonogram since I am measuring normally and haven't had any issues, but that if I wanted one I could do it. I also asked about the 3-D sonogram and he said he would sign the release so that we could do it, but that he doesn't think its necessary. Soooo I think we probably won't do's not like we won't get to see little Ryan soon enough! Who knows, maybe I will change my mind. I am excited we get to go back in three weeks! Oh and I also have to do my glucose screening test then too! Oh yay!

Ryan's Nursery

Ryan is one lucky little baby! On Tuesday Kevin and I met Grandma and Grandpa at Buy Buy Baby because they wanted to buy Ryan's crib for him! What a lucky little man! We decided on the Hudson crib in white - pic below. I can't wait to put it all together with the bedding we picked out. Which was a surprise - my grandparents (from my mom's side) bought all of Ryan's bedding for him!! We are soooo excited to get this in - we love it and I just can't wait to see it! It's going to looks so good! yay!

And Yia Yia T and Grandpa J (my dad hasn't decided what he wants to be called yet) also made a purchase for little Ryan - they ordered his glider.  We ordered the Chateau Adult Glider from Posh Tots in Camelot Pear, which is light green - it will go perfect in Ryan's nursery! 

The crib and te glider take about 6 - 8 weeks to come in, so hopefully the walls of the nursery walls will be ready by the time the crib and glider get in!
