Weekly wisdom: Enjoy it it all. The good the bad and the ugly.


Here is the picture. My printer ran out of ink so I couldn't print a paper.

Birthday season is here!


These next few months are crammed with birthdays. There is one every month from March-September.

Tuesday was my birthday. Conrad and I went to Pleasanton to get at to have lunch at PF Changs. Oh the food there is just to die for. Just what this pregnant momma needed!!
Last night we celebrated Candice and my birthday at his mom's house. Candice's birthday is today.

Conrad did a great job with my birthday present! He got this amazing bag from JoTotes
I love it. It has a place for my camera, my wallet, I can even fit my water bottle in there. It is awesome. Heck it's so great that I might even be able to use it as a diaper bag as well.


I got some great maternity clothes from Kathy and Candice. Some new capris!! WHOO HOO!! I love em. I am wearing them now. Just in time for the warm weather. I also got a gift certificate for Color Me Mine. Love it all!!

Pictures from the park


Another trip to the park. Friday we headed to Sonoma Park.
We are just loving the sunshine and the chance to get out and hang out with some friends. The weather has been so weird. A few days before it was raining and even hailing.



Her shirt says Mommy's little cutie - could not be more true!


"Take a picture of my shoe!"


"Hey Mom!"

12 weeks

I'm in the final stretch of the first trimester! Whoo-hoo!! Hopefully this nausea will go away.

The baby is about 3 inches long and weighing about a half of an ounce. This week the facial features are becoming more defined. All of it's vital organs have been formed. Reading all of these little facts about this child growing inside me, just amazes me! The work the God does. In just 9 months a person is formed. Well before that... this baby is formed just not big enough. Being pregnant reminds me of the big God we serve. Nothing is impossible for Him.

How far along: 12 weeks and 1 day


Next appointment: May 17th


Any new aches/pains: I must be doing something wrong or too much in aerobics because my back is hurting.


Maternity clothes: Still rockin' the maternity pants


Sleep: Same as before waking up to go pee.


Best moment this week: Conrad, Aubrey and I all got to see our little one jumping and wiggling

on the screen.


Movement: Too early, from all the movement on the ultrasound it made me even more excited to feel this little one move.


Gender: I'm excited to find out. This week there has been plenty of opinions on it. Conrad saw the baby on the monitor and thought DEFINITELY Boy! His mom is thinking Boy too. Me? I'm not sure what I think. I go back and forth. Aubrey is set on having a little sister.


Food cravings: It really depends on the day. Right now I'm craving these amazing baked beans that my mother in law makes. Guess what we are having with dinner tomorrow? Yep!


Belly Button: Still an innie


What I miss: I really miss my cherry cokes. Oh what I would do for an ice cold cherry coke!!


What I’m looking forward to this week: Getting into the second trimester.



Without further ado my weekly picture

MOPS Scenic Nursery Trip

Aubrey had a great time yesterday at our MOPS Scenic Nursery Tour. It was raining and that didn't stop the kids from having a good time.



The kids got to plant a tomato plant.


Aubrey wore her boots and had a great time splashing in the puddles, smelling the flowers, she even pulled a pretty flower right off it's stem.

Doctor Appointment


Today we had our DR appointment. I was really excited because Conrad was able to come to and we were going to be hearing our little one's heartbeat for the first time. Aubrey was also there and I wanted her to hear it and help it make it more real for her. The NP came in and got the doppler out and searched for the heartbeat. Every time she had it, it would disappear and all you could hear was my blood flowing through my body. She tried again and again with no such luck. So she said let's go into the other room and do an ultrasound. I was pretty excited to get to do an ultrasound and Conrad and Aubrey got to see our little peanut on the screen.

It was amazing. He/she kept moving around. Waving it's little arms and wiggling it's legs. It's just too precious. I cannot believe this little miracle that is growing inside me. God is good!

So here is a little clip of our little jumping bean.

My due date was also confirmed from the previous ultrasound. DR said the baby was measuring to the exact day that we thought.
November 4, 2010.

A few pics from this week

We got out this week and soaked up some sunshine. Friday we went to the park with Candice and Katiya. Aubrey had a lot of fun chasing bubbles, swinging on the swing and playing on the slide.

She's my little ray of sunshine


Chasing bubbles. (Mommy was trying to blow bubbles and take pictures)


Isn't she just adorable???


On the phone with Daddy. She was pretty upset that we were leaving and just wanted her daddy.





Tuesday we opened up the new chalk and decorated the driveway




Aubrey is ready for summer. She has been asking if we can play her in pool or the sprinkles. She wants to go swimming at Papa and Nana's house. Soon enough the hot weather will be here.

11 weeks

How far along: 11 weeks

Next appointment: April 21st - I'm excited to be able to hear his/her heartbeat.

Any new aches/pains: I did not sleep well last night because my back was really hurting. I don't think it's pregnancy related. I think it's from my aerobics class, we did a latin workout and my body isn't used to shaking like that ;)

Maternity clothes: I've been trying to get the bella band to work for me, but that thing drives me insane so I've graduated to some maternity pants. They still are loose but they are more comfy than my regular pants and that band.

Sleep: I've been getting up once at night to go pee. It always seems to come when I am the most comfortable.

Best moment this week: Aubrey has really gotten to understand that there is a little one in there. She has been talking to the baby and kissing my belly. She will rub her baby "sister" It's so sweet to witness.

Movement: Too early

Food cravings: Today I'm really craving some onion rings.

Belly button: It still looks like a belly button

What I miss: Not waking up half way through the night because I cannot hold it any longer.

What I’m looking forward to this week: My DR appt is next week and I'm hoping that we will be able to hear his/her heartbeat.

Weekly wisdom: 40 weeks is a LONG time!

Here's the 11 weeks pic. I think this makes me look bigger than I really am. I have a maternity shirt on and I might be pushing my tummy out :)
