On Saturday we got free tickets to the Padre game so I couldn’t pass those up, but don’t get me wrong I was definitely freaked out about going. For 1) it was about 90 degrees, ridicously hot, and of course our seats were smack dab straight in the sun the entire game! I couldn’t do it, after sitting in the sun for only about 5 minutes I was sweating so bad and knew this wasn’t a good idea. We spent majority of the time standing in the shade or sitting at a table watching the game on the restaurant table, I just couldn’t bear the heat and was scared I’d get to hot and start contracting. 2) We had to park about 5 blocks from the stadium, now mind you for “normal” pregnant women this is totally fine but I can’t even walk my daughter to her classroom without my stomach tightening. My poor husband we walked so slow to the stadium, me waddling right behind him (yes I already have the dang waddle going on), but walking any faster and I get this awful side cramp. I was even nervous to walk around the stadium but we did a lot of stopping so I was fine until the walk back and then baby girl made sure to let me know I needed to sit down and was done for the day. Overall, it was a great time and I was so happy I was able to enjoy the family outing with my family!!
OMG can’t believe I am seriously 20 weeks pregnant and I haven’t been blogging like I wanted to. Sometimes I feel like the time is just crawling by and then other times when it comes to my blogging and scrapbooking I feel like the time is flying by because I haven’t done half the stuff I have wanted to do. Poor baby is going to have no documentation of being in my belly like I did with Kaiden. Well today was a very exciting day because today we have finally found out what we are having!!! Finally the time has come!! I have had two different chances now to find out the gender and both times my husband wanted to wait so I respected his wishes, well now I can’t wait any longer. With both my two other children I have always found out right at the ultrasound appointment, well this time we were going to do things a little bit different, we were going to have a gender reveal party right after the ultrasound. The ultrasound was scheduled for 4pm, OMG it seemed like the longest day ever, I just couldn’t wait for the appointment. Not gonna lie though, I was a little nervous for the appointment and for two different reasons. 1) I was worried something was going to be wrong with the baby, even though I had felt him/her move earlier in the day I was still terrified and 2) I was scared the ultrasound tech would accidentally tell us the sex of the baby and then everything would be ruined. Well we went to the appointment and everything was great, baby wasn’t totally cooperating so the ultrasound lasted an hour long, my stomach was so sore after we left from her poking and prodding repeatably with the probe so that definitely sucked. It was so crazy to think that we had the results in an envelope right there in my purse, I kept joking to my husband that we should just look! But no, I’m not that kinda person, I like to be surprised, and I wanted to be surprised with everyone else. We went straight to The Cupcake Store by our house and handed the baker the envelope. I had ordered 4 cupcakes and she was going to insert the filling into only one of the cupcakes. I was doing our reveal a little bit different, I wanted only the grandparents to get a cupcake, no one would know which cupcake had the filling, and then they would all bite at the exact same time! Even as we got the cupcakes I was nervous leftover frosting would be on the box or wrapper of the cupcake, I’ve heard way to many stories of people having their reveal ruined and I really didn’t want that to happen to us. We went and picked up the kiddos and then it was straight to my mother in laws for the fun to begin!!
Labor signs: Better not be having any for quite some time!
I can’t believe my sweet boy is 2 years old already! I know it’s so cliché to say but I feel like as soon as you have kids time just seriously flies by! To me Kaiden will always be my little miracle baby, my 29 weeker who gave me the biggest scare ever in my life but has now turned out to be the biggest blessing in disguise. I feel like no matter how old he is I’ll always remember that day like it was yesterday and just be so proud of the sweet and intelligent boy he has now become. Seriously, thank God for technology, if it wasn’t for the amazing research and technology we have today, I wouldn’t have my beautiful boy with me here today.
When it comes to an Easter basket you don’t have to get all fancy and spend a ton of money on a basket your kids could care less about, unless you plan on using it for many years to come, it’s not worth the money. Kids don’t care about the actual basket, I feel like that’s more for the parents and the presentation of things, kids only care about what’s inside. I usually just go to my local dollar tree where you can find adorable baskets or to be even more practical use a toy as your basket, some really great toys to use as baskets would be a sand pail (great to use later for beach trips) or for boys some sort of dump truck.
