22 and 1/2 weeks update

Well, I HAVE MADE IT! I am finally out of the woods I think with this getting sick every day thing. I have much more energy and have started into the "nesting" phase for sure. I have been cleaning every day and am getting the baby room all planned and even painted it last week! Well I didn't paint... Kevin and my dad did, but I went up every so often to check on them : ). I have purchased the material to make the baby bedding and have also bought a crib, rug, and dresser (i still have to repaint this). I am really excited about the quilt my mother-in-law is making for Willa! She makes the most gorgeous quilts and CAN NOT wait to see the finished product!

Willa moves constantly! Kevin has been able to feel her for about 3 weeks now but she has just started to become visible to both of us! Our new thing is to WATCH her move around... it is the coolest thing ever I think! I am getting bigger every day. As of a little over a week ago people have been telling me I "look" pregnant now... I just don't know how I feel about that scale! I don't want to gain more than I should but I just may be on this track. I do get some contractions now and then (braxton hicks...fake ones) but they don't hurt that bad. Right now I am just waiting for my next sono in about four more weeks!!

I am sure most of you know God has decided to give me a little taste of how mother hood will be. How it feels for someone to be completely dependant on you!! Kevin ruptured his Achilles and had surgery on Friday and I have had to completely take care of him! It has been pretty good but I will be happy in a month when he can get around without crutches!

Think that's it!

Willa's Baby Room

Here are my nursery colors! I would call them Raspberry red, celery green and slate blue! The furniture will be a mix of walnut wood and white wood.


Here is my room inspiration! This is mostly inspiration I have a few fun ideas up my sleeve too!

It's a GIRL!

Well, fully expecting this morning to see boy you can imagine our surprise when we hear..."It's a girl!". It was such a fun experience because I have known the ultra sound tech since I was a little girl! She is my best friend Amber's Aunt. She took her time with us and it just made the whole thing so exciting! Thank you Robin!
Here is a pic from the sono:
She has her hands up like she is Rockin' out!

On to the name! We chose her first name long ago. We both really loved the name and did not agree on one together ever since! So...we are excited about it! Her middle name is after Kevin's mom who passed when he was a senior in high school. We know that she would be so excited about a little girl and wanted to honor her! It also happens to my best friends name too ; ).

Pebble's name will be:

Willa Christina Rock

Of course after my appointment Kevin and I were naturally ECSTATIC! I called my family and surprised my mom at work! We ended up going to the mall to pick out some cute things for baby Willa. My Mom got her the CUTEST bikini for next summer along with some diva shades! We also got some Trumpet socks from Neiman's and the cutest lil' fake Uggs from Target! This is going to DRAIN my pocket book, but I am crazy excited to have a little dancer!

I will post about nursery ideas tomorrow...momma is wiped out from this fun day!

Here are some pics of what I got:

K daddy

This post is dedicated to my one and only!

Here we are just about half way through this pregnancy... we get to find out what are sweet little baby is tomorrow! I wanted to take some time and thank my sweet Kevin for EVERYTHING he is, has done, and will continue to be for me!

Since day one of this pregnancy he has been AMAZING! It is no secret I have been pretty sick and he literally waits on me day and night. Need a 9:30 run for ice cream? He's on it. Need a coke after he has been at work all day? He's on it. Need a clean up on isle 4? HE'S ON IT! No complaining... no argument... just a smile and he's happy to help!! I know God really works on us women to prepare us for mother hood but ever since I have been pregnant I feel God is preparing Kevin too. I could not do this without him... LITERALLY! I ask him "Why are you so good to me?" and he just says "your doing the hard part I am just doing whatever I can to make it easier for you". May my husband receive many jewels in his crown for this! I truly am blessed beyond words! I know without him I would have lost my mind by now. I keep telling him that once I feel better or have this baby (whatever comes first) I will make it up to him! So... Thank you K-Daddy Rock for everything you do for me and our growing family! You truly are a man after God's heart and I thank you for being that spiritual leader in out home!

Cautionary Whale

What!!! I had a large meal last night but I jumped on the scale this morning for the first time in a little over a week and I think I need to slow down on those yummy party burritos from taco bueno! Holy Smokes! I was not expecting to see the number I saw...

I would be okay if I knew how much I was gaining is okay I guess. Up until now I had only gained about 4 lbs... well that is for sure NOT the case now! Yikes!
