I have lots of pictures to post...I feel bad for the delay. It'll happen one of these days. Just wanted to give a quick update on stuff.
Aleah Corrine Bowman was born on Sunday November 16th at 10:08 a.m. weighing 8 lbs 3.5 oz and 19 inches long. She is at home with mommy and daddy now in San Antonio, Texas! Congratulations Kyle and Sarah, I love you guys!
Grace turned 2 on Friday the 14th! I have pictures of that...to come later.
I am almost in the 3rd trimester! Sunday the 23rd I will be 28 weeks pregnant. I have gained almost 20 lbs now. He's kicking all the time and this weekend he tried to put a fist up my esophagus! Ha! I got heartburn for the first time last night and took some tums. I despise people that tell me I look bigger than I should. Bite me. I could gain another 15 lbs in the last trimester and still be in healthy range...so we'll see.
I want chocolate frosted doughnuts and may ask Jennifer if I can take Grace to the bakery with me today once she wakes up from her nap.
I want to take a nap when I'm done blogging.
My nephew, Ezekiel, is on his way in an ambulance to Houston to see a specialist about his eyes. Because he was premature he has problems in that area and he could go blind if it's not taken care of. I spoke with Kristin, his mommy, this morning as they were following the ambulance to Houston. If he needs surgery they will have to stay for 2 weeks. Pray/Hope for them please.
Mark and Caitlin are getting married next week! November 25th. It will be very small with close family by their sides. I'm so excited for them...it reminds me of when I married Josh almost 3 years ago now. Our anniversary is on December 11th. Caitlin is due to have London on the 8th of December!
We are leaving in a week to head up to Decatur, Indiana, where my family lives-for Thanksgiving and 2 baby showers. We will be back Sunday night- the 30th. It's almost DECEMBER!
I am soooo excited about Christmas-I want a tree YESTERDAY!
Tomorrow, November 20th, is the 3 year anniversary of when Josh proposed to me in Indianapolis. Sigh. I still love him so much!! And now we're about to have a baby! Crazy that we've only known each other for 3 years and change. I'm looking forward to the rest of our life together. I want to die old and white haired, in each others arms, while we're asleep. That's my perfect way to die...in his arms, peacefully, together. I'm such a sap. Hehe.
I got my hair cut and colored! I love it! And, no, there is NO proof that coloring your hair while pregnant is harmful. I'm practically in the 3rd trimester anyway, I held off. You would think that women who have already had children know the rules of being pregnant--what not to say to another pregnant woman. Don't you remember all those annoying, advice giving family members telling you what you can and can't do?! Grrrrr. I'm ok. The worst is from a girl I don't even know! She went to college with my husband and has the nerve to question me about stuff. I'm stopping now.
There are a couple of people who have really been by my side during my pregnancy. You have been the most helpful and comforting....so thank you Kim Goodrich and Jennifer Allen. =) There are many other people who have been wonderful, they are just the 2 that I have gotten the most support from.
