It’s been so long that I’ve been gone..

It has been way too long since I’ve shared. I’ve written several drafts on different topics while I had spare time, but never finished them. I know, I’m a horrible blogger. Truth is, I just haven’t thought of it much since I’m running after my son and being the kickass mommy and housewife that I am. 🙂

A lot has happened since my last entry. Parker now has 7 teeth, has gone from crawling to walking, had his first Halloween,  Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter and birthday. We are having so much fun with him and I am constantly amazed at how smart and sweet he is. He is so outgoing now and is growing so fast.

Our home has gone through a lot of changes as well. We completely gutted the “master bath” and made it into what a master bath should be. This was hands down the longest and most difficult project, so far. We also replaced the old, blue carpet with some nice, soft, stain resistant carpet, put crown molding and pot lights in our bedroom, and made plans and new storage pieces for our closet. We also did a lot of diy projects which include our new bed frame and headboard, matching side tables for our room, a new farmhouse kitchen table, our master bath cabinets (all 3), and a couple of decor items. I am excited to post more details about all these great changes in my upcoming posts, so keep a look out.

Stay tuned for more sharing!!

Thanks for reading!! 🙂

Hello There

Well this is exciting, my first ever blog post! So many things to say, yet the words escape me. So forgive me if it sounds like I am rambling (it’s because I am!).

First of all, I am a stay at home wife and soon-to-be mommy!! We are expecting our little boy in about 8 more weeks and we couldn’t be happier! We have his room pretty much done, we just need a few things to complete it, and hopefully we get that at the baby shower. I am wanting to buy so many clothes for him already, and it is hard not to! I know once he is here, I won’t be able to control my spending. My husband will probably have to take the card away from me from time to time, but he gets to buy his toys and buying for others is what I enjoy doing. Plus, I doubt he will get too upset considering it will be for our son, and I am almost absolutely positive he will be joining in on the fun.

We have a 6/7 month old cat that we love dearly. She is like my baby. We are hoping she will do great when our son arrives. She still has her claws in and she sleeps in the bed with us, and we are hoping she doesn’t hurt the baby. Everyone has their opinions, but I think she will be fine. She is a very curious cat that loves watching everything. I let her go on the balcony from time to time, and she loves it! She gets to see and hear people other than me and my husband. She also loves getting into the blinds and sitting on the window sill. She does this to watch everyone pass by, but I think it is mainly for the sunshine. She is so silly and brings such joy to our lives. I can’t wait til our boy is old enough to play with her. They both will love it!

This pregnancy has been pretty easy thus far. Early on I wouldn’t want to eat because nothing seemed appealing. I would feel nauseous only a few times, and only once did it result in a trip to the bathroom. I fainted for a few seconds a few months back, but that was because I didn’t have much food or water in me. I took the glucose test and the results were fine. I was terrified that it wouldn’t be, partly because of the fainting, but mostly because my dad has diabetes and our son’s weight gain has been rapid. However, the doctors aren’t very concerned about it. This stage in the pregnancy I am getting uncomfortable more, and everyday things like getting up from the couch, trying to tie my shoes, and picking things up off the floor are becoming more and more difficult. However, I quickly forget all that once he starts kicking (which is frequently)! My husband loves feeling him kick, and he kicks hard! I love when our cat Penny gets in the bed with us and comes walking up to my face via my body, and she suddenly stops on my belly, my husband says, “Get off my son.” He says it with his adorable smile, picks her up, and kisses her. It is all so heartwarming. He will be such an amazing father!!! I can’t wait!

Well, I guess this is it for now. I don’t want to give you my entire life story in my first blog post. There will be plenty of time for that later! 🙂
