A Letter To Liam

My Sweet Boy,
Mommy wanted to write you this letter to document exactly how I'm feeling in this very moment. We're officially 22 weeks tomorrow! Time is absolutely flying by! I feel like we just found out about you yesterday! You're growing SO much and you already weigh about 1 lb! I think everyone is predicting for you to be a big baby! My favorite thing in the world is feeling you kick! Daddy is able to feel you now too and it just melts my heart into a million pieces! I think I picked a pretty great daddy for you! He loves you so much already! :) Well, basically everyone does! You are going to be one very spoiled loved child!!

Here lately I can't get over picturing who you're going to look like! Are you going to have my complexion? Daddy's eyes? {I hope so!} Red hair??? I just can't wait until that doctor places you in my arms! But most importantly I just desperately pray that you are healthy. I would be lying if I said I haven't been worried about your arrival! I'm not worried about the pain, just the thought of something going wrong scares me to no end. But I've been trying to put all my faith and trust in God because I know he created you for a wonderful purpose! You are going to do HUGE things in this world my sweet, sweet son! 

I can honestly say becoming pregnant with you is the best thing that has EVER happened to me. I never thought I could love someone I've never even met SO much. You are my everything. November cant come soon enough! 

Well, mommy is off to the doctor here soon to check up on you! Mommy is actually fighting this nasty cold and they wanted to see me a day early to make sure everything is okay!

I love you Liam with my entire heart! 

Love, Mommy!

19 weeks!

I seriously can't believe I'm almost HALF WAY!!! SO crazy! I feel like we just found out yesterday! This bump of mine is growing like crazy! I can honestly say I fall more in love with this little babe everyday! We had an amazing 4th of July weekend hanging by the pool, eating grilled food and hanging out with family! I can't wait for Liam's first 4th next year!

How far along: 19 weeks! Almost halfway there!!!
Gender: It's a BOY! Liam Justin! :)
Weight gain: 3-5 lbs! I go back Friday for my 20 week ultrasound so I'll find out for sure then!
Maternity clothes: A few! I've basically been living in maxi dresses! And I still use the rubber band trick for my pants!
Stretch marks: So far so good!!! I've been using my stretch mark oil like crazy!
Belly button in or out: Out! It sticks out so far lol!
Sleep: I still need lots of sleep but it's getting WAY more uncomfortable! Especially now that I'm not supposed to be sleeping on my back! Plus I always have the urge to pee 500 times a night!
Best moment this week: Having a few days off to be productive around the house and spending a wonderful 4th of July weekend with family! :)
Miss anything: Being skinny lol! He's so worth it though!
Movement: YES!!! Seriously the best thing I've ever experienced! Hoping Justin will be able to feel him soon!
Cravings: Hmm... lets see... EVERYTHING! I'm always, always hungry! But seriously- anything FRESH! Fresh garden tomatoes + mayo + toast = the best creation on the planet! 
Looking forward to: Our 20 week ultrasound on Friday and getting away for the weekend with my love!

Baby Lust

It's been awhile! But I'm back with a FRESH-new design, baby name and GENDER! We're so excited to say that baby is a BOY! We had our gender reveal party almost two weeks ago {more on that later} and we decided to name him Liam Justin! LJ for short after our initials!

I had myself convinced this baby was a girl but I honestly couldn't be happier about this wonderful surprise! Ever since I found out he was a boy I can't contain myself! I seriously LIVE on Etsy, Pinterest &! I put together this little baby "wish list!" Baby Liam is going to be one stylish, little dude!

In other news- I'm happy to announce I will be a rep for Happy Baby Wrap
I can't wait to carry Liam in my little wrap! AHHHH, seriously I DIE!

PS- how fab is my new design?! I really wanted a simple/clean look and Kotryna was just the gal for the job! I will add an about me picture once I get my new maternity pictures done! I will also be hosting a giveaway for a FREE blog design later next week! Stay tuned!
