remembering how it all started

this is us the day we found out we were expecting. my mom was in town and we took her to an alabama football game. i just remember sitting there, and every so often would get this giddy feeling in my tummy that "omg. we're really pregnant." it's bizarre to look back on, but fun to see this picture and know that i will always remember that day.

we've come a long way since then. there are so many things that have gone on since september that it's kind of crazy to think about. most recently, my sister got re-married! jeremy and i now not only have a nephew from rachel, but a new brother-in-law and niece. it's fun to have a little girl around... although, every time i see lexie, she looks just a little bit older. and she is much too cute for her own good!

i was also in a wedding this past weekend. one of my best friends from college got married in huntsville to her perfect partner. and what a weekend it was. i don't know that i've ever met so many people at one event as i did at this one. it was nice to get out and mingle with old and new friends for sure.

at home, we're just trying to wrap up a few projects that have been lingering about. in january (i think), we had an outside pipe burst, flooding our utility closet and causing it to leak into our kitchen. thank goodness for insurance and a very handy husband who took it upon himself to do some drywall work and everything. he's done a good job, and even thought it's four months later, it's finally coming to an end!

i'm trying my best to get things organized inside the house. we're trying this new thing where we de-clutter every night before we go to bed. so far, we've only gotten one room into this process, but i plan on getting some other rooms fixed up this weekend. it's time to have a clean house before the little one makes his big debut.

we have a seemingly quiet weekend planned. a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning at 8:15... and it's supposed to be gorgeous weather around here. perhaps it's time to sit on the back porch and get a little sun...

i'm a total slacker

and i don't even know why i haven't been updating. lame, i tell ya!

we're in the final countdown stages at this point. as of next wednesday, i'll be 37 weeks - which means a full-term baby. cayden (yes, it's a boy! his name will be cayden samuel) will be allowed to make his appearance any time after that. i'd still like for him to stick around for a few more weeks just so we make sure that the whole day care thing will work out appropriately. (as far as that goes, we aren't guaranteed a spot 100% yet, but according to them, it's looking really good. whew.)

we almost have the nursery complete. just a few final touches and we should be good to go there. the cats love it. i think three of them have slept in the crib already. and of course we've found them in the rocker and on top of the chang
er. we found our miracle kitty curled up (well, as curled up as a 13 pound cat can be) in cayden's car seat just yesterday. i'm sure they won't love his stuff quite so much once they realize all the noise is coming from him... so we'll see how that goes.

as far as the pregnancy has gone, i've had it fairly easy. i'm just now to the point of where things are really starting to get uncomfortable, but hey, it's worth it all in the end, right? jeremy gets a kick out of watching my stomach move around
. and i'll admit, it's still a little too alien-esque sometimes for my taste. but i know as soon as he's here, i'll miss all the movements in my belly.

i really hope to update this blog more often. again, i apologize for being such a slacker. i'll leave you with a photo of the nursery. all the frames will eventually hold photos of cayden... and possibly some photos of me and jeremy (we haven't completely decided yet).

stay tuned for completed nursery pics and possibly some photos of my big, pregnant self.

and just for fun, here's our big kitty in the car seat. looks comfy, no?
