Yes... being pregnant has made me cherish every moment even more than I did before. I finally scrapped! Simple... yet perfect... our Lil Bit's first layout from Mama!
I used the some photos Josh took at our first ultrasound at 10 weeks. I love that our ultrasound place is so awesome about letting us take pictures of the screen! That way it gives us so many more than the 4-6 they print out for you! I love the ModaBella line from AC... the colors make me happy.
This whole approaching motherhood thing has great a lot of amazing emotions for me. Some that I really can't even describe really. I have kept a journal... I haven't written in it enough... I will start writing more. It's very overwhelming to think of the words that even come close to what this feeling is like... especially having a rough childhood w/my own mother... so being a "mother" is something I am so very passionate about.
I have started to feel Lil Bit's first movements! Monday morning, I rolled from my side to my back and laid my hand on my stomach like I usually do, hoping to feel something, and I did... I felt a lil kick on the inside on my hand! I have felt the early flutters before this too, but this was the most distiguishable kick. It was so awesome! I don't have much "padding" over my uterus so my midwife said I would probably feel the baby sooner. Im feeling the baby flutter right now as Im typing! Lil butterflies! Josh can't wait til he can feel the baby... and he keeps asking every week... "Can the baby hear my voice yet?"... which I think is so precious. He can't wait to start talking and reading to Lil Bit. I told him next week Lil Bit should be able to start to hear the outside world. 17 weeks.
My eating has definitely kicked up too! It feels so good to crave food and be hungry! I "out-ate" Josh last nite! haha
We have picked out 2 paint colors... Both green. One is a lil darker which will probably be if Lil Bit is a boy...and the lighter color if Lil Bit is a girl...
Celery Sprig (boy)
Celery Bunch (girl)
So that is the current colors for the nursery! I have a big canvas art piece that is pink, green, and yellow pears that will be the decor focus if Lil Bit is a girl. So cute! Ill post a photo of it soon. If it's a boy... not quite sure what the "decor focus" will be. Nothing sports or jungle theme... Josh and I are NOT sports people... and don't really care of the colors of all the "jungle" theme stuff... All of the furniture is white... we are using my younger brother's crib, who is now 10. We have a white dresser we will use for the changing table and we have a hutch that we will paint white that is currently brown, and we will get a white glider.
So that is the latest... Ill be back this week w/a 16 week belly shot... and maybe another layout!
