Moving on

August 16th, 2010

At the end of this week, we are moving out of this apartment. I can't tell you how happy I am to get out of this place. I have many complaints about the neighbors and the management....we have not been happy here for quite awhile. Moving into a new place is going to be such a breath of fresh air for us!

But when I look a little deeper, the move is going to be somewhat bittersweet. Why, you ask? Well, this is where we've spent the first 3 years of our marriage! 3 years ago in June we said our "I do's", went on our amazing honeymoon in July, and moved into this apartment that August. We were newly weds, starting our new life together as husband and wife. I was so proud to find places for our wedding gifts and to hang wedding pictures on the walls. Now the walls are bare and the cupboards are empty. Our things are neatly packed in boxes, ready for their new home.

The past 3 years haven't been all puppies and rainbows, I won't lie and say things have been perfect. But our first few years of marriage have really showed us a lot about eachother and we've grown so much closer. We have a very strong bond and a deep commitment to this union. If our relationship wasn't stable, we wouldn't be bringing a little one into our lives! Some people probably think that Danny and I got too serious, too fast. I will be the first to admit that I know so much more about him now than I did even on our wedding day. We've both grown so much. But I knew from the very beginning, even when we first met, that Danny was something special and that he would always be part of my life. I'm a very lucky woman to have such a solid rock, a friend I can always count on, and someone that I know will stick by me during the darkest hours! I don't think many people can really say that. I maybe wouldn't be able to say that either if we hadn't been through the tragic moments we have been forced to experience together. He's a good, a great man! Not all guys would be able to endure such stress. Our relationship has cracks, life hasn't been easy on us, but we've been doing our best to fill those cracks with a strong bond, making sure to not forget about them because they have helped bring us to where we are today.

So this week, we are moving on to a new home but we are bringing the foundation we already have built along with us! We have so much to look forward to and a lot of memories to look back on. So here's to change...and hopefully, our next 3 years will be even better and we will continue to learn from eachother and grow with one another each step of the way!!

Lookin' good!

August 11th, 2010

What's better during
pregnancy than getting to see your precious little one with ultrasound? It's truly an amazing sight. The only thing better is finding out from the doctor afterwards that everything is looking great! Yesterday, Danny and I went to the clinic for baby's big ultrasound at about 21 weeks. Baby wasn't being overly cooperative but we got some cute pictures and finding out that everything was looking good made me so happy. I actually ended up with tears in my eyes at one see this tiny life we made squirming around was just so spectacular!

I must admit, Gabriel crossed my mind yesterday during the ultrasound. I remember Danny and I watching him wave at us on the ultrasound. I remember us looking at eachother and we both just couldn't quit smiling. No matter what I do, Gabriel is never far off my mind. I miss him so much and can't help but wonder what he would think of his new little sibling growing inside of mommy. But I can only dream of what it would be like. It makes me sad, but I am hopeful for what our new life is going to be like!

The intense love I feel for this little one already is amazing and scary at the same time. My only wish is f
or a healthy second half of this pregnancy and that we are holding our sweet sweet baby in our arms in 4 months! My next appointment is September 8th and I get to do the fun glucose test, yippie! So until next time, here are some pictures of baby :)

August 6th, 2010

We've made it to the halfway point...20 weeks! It's very exciting. Next Tuesday we have our big ultrasound, I can't wait to see baby again. Danny will get to see baby for the first time too.

Baby has been kicking up a storm. I actually felt a kick from the outside the other night. Hopefully Danny will be able to feel it soon too! It's the most amazing thing!

I went to the doctor the other day because I was positive I had a bladder infection but I was wrong. I guess everything looked fine and I had probably just overdone myself that day and hadn't had enough water. Baby's heartbeat sounded good though and everything seems to be fine...Thank God!

Oooo, and the other day (right after I posted) our fuzzibunz came in the mail. They are adorable, I love them. Danny liked how soft they were! I will post a picture once we move in a couple weeks and get the other half of my stash.

And just for fun...a couple more belly pictures!
