oh baby

Thursday, May 19

 {everyone please drool over baby husband and his bow tie.}
You guys! We're so overwhelmed! Thank you so much for your enthusiastic and sincere words of congratulations yesterday ... your sweet tweets, facebook messages and comments ... gosh! We are feeling the love! Husband is traveling this week, but I made sure to fill him in on all your loveliness last night on the phone. You made our day! Thank you!

I tell you what, I was bursting at the seams to finally announce our little bebe. A few of you predicted what was going on when there was less posting. And you were right. Dude, making a baby can be hard work! I've had quite a few down days this first trimester, a lot of which were spent wearing the same comfy T-shirt and leggings over and over again ... thus ... a significant lack of picture days. That, and Awkward and Awesomes {and you thought I'd forgotten!}. But I've been saving up those special awky little moments just for you. And we shall resume all talk of our embarrassing selves next week. Pregnancy has a special way of making me about 50x more awkward than I already was. How exciting.

So. Deets. We're about three and a half months along with only about 5 and a half to go {every half counts kids}... with baby set to arrive right around Thanksgiving. Sometimes it seems like a lifetime away, but now that some of my energy is starting to come back ...and I've stopped throwing up in parking lots ... 5 and a half months doesn't seem bad at all. I get more excited about my changing body every day. And it's so exciting to see the bathroom scale changing too. Every pound is like a victory point for our healthy, growing alien child. Although I think my newest, and most fabulous additions might have stolen a victory point or two as well. Husband is so proud.

Speaking of alien child ... I swear, some of the growth illustrations in our baby books freak me out ... in a "oh. look at its sweet little body trying to catch up with its gigantic head" kind of way.  It still looked holy-cute in our ultrasound though. Good job baby!

Also. YES. We're finding out what it is ... at our next appointment in 6 weeks. eee! I think it's a boy and husband thinks it's a girl. I'm right of course. My only wish is that the bebe comes out looking like husband ... and acting like me. Then, we shall have created the perfect child.
Sounds easy enough.

im so happy for you guys!!!!! again, congrats and can't wait to follow :)

Nicole Marie said...

so many congratulations!!!

Drea said...

I'm so glad you're starting to feel better. Rumor is the second trimester is the best.

And I TOTALLY agree with you. My doctor gave me a diagram showing how the baby looks as it develops over the weeks and um... first trimester baby is VERY alien-like.

Especially before their eyes move forward. But I'm sure you've been reading about it like crazy, like me.

Mine's the size of an onion!! :D

Jhan said...

I'm really happy for you guys. Seriously!

wonderchris said...

Congratulations - what a wonderful addition to your house of love! :)

AJD ∞ said...

I am SO excited for you guys. Your photos yesterday made me think, "Oh! MY hubs & I COULD have a little nugget!" [I'm terrified for reason I won't get into in this comment.] You are quite an adorable pregnant lady. Even if you do throw up in parking lots [it's to be expected, unfortunately, right?]...

Hayley said...

So cute!! I squealed when I saw the photos yesterday! And good job of hiding that bebe in other photos! I had no idea! Cant wait to see what happens.

I was on the Labor and delivery floor yesterday at the hospital for clinicals.... it is amazing!!! You're going to love being pregnant and having a bebe!

Julia said...

Oh. My. Word. Tyson looks just the same as he does now. Identical smile....and I wouldn't put a bow tie past him. So happy for you!

Kassie said...

I had my little boy on Thanksgiving! Takes thankfulness to a whole new level!

Your baby will be adorable! I was afraid that I'd have an ugly baby, but my aunt informed me that only ugly people have ugly babies lol.... so you have nothing to worry about!

Diana Smith said...

Congrats!! Babies are exciting. I'm due dec 9th so I'm right behind ya!! I hope I have another girl!!!

Laura said...

It is crazy how excited I am for you even though I don't know you!! But I feel like I do from reading this little piece of your life everyday and I just know you and Tys will be great parents! Hope the 2nd and 3rd trimesters are very good to you!!

C said...

YEEEEEEEEY!
so happy for you guys!
Its gonna be such a cute baby!
Congratulations and much love flying accross the Atlantic!

Jessica said...

you two are going to make a beautiful, well-dressed and above all adored, child. couldnt be happier for you two!! does this change any of the plans for moving to DC? i hope not (mainly b/c i live here and am secretly hoping to bump into you and your bump sometime)!

Jenn said...

Very excited for you guys and can't wait to hear about all of the updates! Congratulations! :)

The Balch Bunch said...

SO FUN!!! Congrats again! Thinking of you guys and praying for a healthy bebe!

Bretty said...

first trimester down! the first one's the worst. but it sounds like your morning sickness has eased up (mine lasted well into the 2nd trimester! i know, right!)

it goes by fast. enjoy it!

friends with some benefits said...

So exciting! We are all so happy for you and can't wait to follow you in the next 6 months! Love the alien child references, made us laugh out loud.

Emily said...

Maybe your baby will come on 11/11/11 b/c that would be really cool (and not too early). Glad you're feeling better!! Those early baby pictures are super creepy. I recommend NOT looking at other animal in utero pictures, like we had to in one of my college classes. . . .

Trina said...

Boy, definitely a boy. I thought both mine were boys and they were both girls.

Congratulations, what a special time in your lives! Enjoy every second.

Also, I am refreshed to hear that each pound is a victory. It makes me want to punch someone when all they talk about is how fat they are when they are pregnant. Because it's not about them anymore. So props to you! That is awesome! Go team healthy baby!

Good luck.

kirtley@ the ink hotel said...

I'm so happy for you guys! It goes by so fast. The sickness will go away. Helpful hint: I used preggie pops when I was pregnant with my daughter and they were a life saver when I felt sick.

Holly said...

congratulations again!!

Sarah Wells said...

Oh my heck! I'm totally due Thanksgiving weekend too! Congrats - I totally know how you're feeling right now :) So exciting!

Frannie Pantz said...

That is so AWESOMELY excited. I have three kids and my first was born a week before Thanksgiving. He was due on Thanksgiving. Let me tell you, this is the best time to be pregnant because you won't have that big and swelling feeling in the summer. Your pic yesterday was adorable and I am so excited for you and your husband. Congrats!

wildchild said...

i am just so excited for you. so excited.

Marie-Eve said...

Pregnancy is amazing, once the first trimester is over, you'll gonna be able to fully enjoy it ! So glad for you guys. It's gonna be life changing in the best way possible, believe me, I have two sweet boys at home, I know what I'm talking about !

Miss K said...

Mrs. Biscuit said...

CONGRATS!!! That is definitely some of the most exciting news, EVER! Woohoo for tiny alien baby!!!

Karri said...

Being pregnant is the most amazing, mind blowing experience ever. Savor every (wretching) minute of it. Annnnd...you get to wear a bikini in summer with a baby belly. ROCK IT! That was my fave part - showing off the beautiful belly.

London said...

I comiserate with you. I can't seem to find anything in my closet to wear besides my leggings and workout pants. AND I get to go to work. ICK!!! I think we are really close as to how far along we are. Which is nice!

Lauren Nicole said...

Congratulations! Excited also to see your prego wardrobe ;)

Jacqueline said...

Congratulations!! I saw your photos yesterday and couldn't get over the awesome idea of how you announced it! You are adorable with your little bump... Look forward to seeing more!

Zelina Garza said...

I am trul;y happy for you both. You kept it a secret very well.

Meredith said...

WOOOOPEEEEE
i am so excited.
how awkward is that? i'm excited about someone elses baby... eh well, we're used to it.
seriously, it will be the cutest baby ever.
praying that everything goes well!
congrats again!

Elecia said...

I couldn't help but notice that your husband looks EXACTLY the same! you could not mistake that picture for any other human being hahaha!

Did you get to hear the heartbeat yet? And did they tell you how fast it was?

frozenlipstick said...

So happy for you and hubby!
You totally surprised me last night, and even told my hubby. :)

The second trimester will be cake walk compared to the first. Just wait till you can feel your precious baby moving all around. It's just so special. I miss those moments.

Kids are a wonderful gift. I know, I have 5 of them. Four boys, and a little girl. If pregnancy was so horrible, trust me, I'd only have one.

Enjoy every moment. It flies by so fast!!

:)

Amy said...

This is so exciting! I can't wait to see and hear about your progression! It's such a special thing!

{just the little things.} said...

Congratulations to you!

D said...

congrats to you both! husband's face hasn't changed much at all! how cute!

Christie @ A Lemon Squeezy Home said...

Oh, so very exciting and cute! Every pregnancy is wonderful, but that first one is just different and special with everything being so new! I've totally thrown up in parking lots while pregnant. Then I get mad because all that money spent on what I was craving was wasted! Ugh. So not fun, but I'm glad you are feeling better!!

Leah said...

You're so funny. I love the way you describe your pregnancy. You are both going to make great parents!

Sydney: I am so excited for you and husband. I can tell from the many posts I've read that you all will be wonderful parents. And the Babies documentary really makes it seem okay to let them get a little dirty, doesn't it? And I would also like to let you know that I have baby-fever super bad.. Husband & I are trying to wait until he finishes school but your cute baby bump is making me want one even more. So thanks for that! =) Hope everything goes great and I can't wait to read more!
