Thankfulness on Thanksgiving

This year, more than ever before, I think I have an
 abounding list of "things" to be thankful for..

An incredible husband - today marks our 1 month of wedded bliss.
Not a day goes by that I don't thank my lucky stars for bringing him into my life.

Our home, that we love so much & are fortunate to have.

Our niece Sofia, who thankfully only lives only 2 minutes away 
She has the power to turn around any crummy day, make us laugh with the clever things she says & melt our hearts with her hugs, kisses and "I love yous"

Our true & genuine friends,
 who have stuck by us through thick & thin - we love you guys!

My easy pregnancy, thus far its been a breeze...her kicks are what I live for these days I'm thankful to only have gained a belly not a bum...but let me not jinx myself. 

Most of all, I'm thankful to become a mother...less than 4 months till we meet our sweet baby girl, words cannot express the love, joy and excitement I have in my heart to welcome this child into the world...She will be showered with so much love that she will never doubt how happy we are she came into our lives.

The long awaited photographers picture & video from our Wedding Photographer finally arrived, actually a day before I left for NY So its not till now that I get to actually sit down and look them over...I have been reliving that day through these videos & photos.

Our wedding in one word? MAGICAL. It truly was the best day of my life

My dad walked me down to my teary eyed groom & best friend.. in the only setting I ever saw myself get married in...just us, our closest of friends & immediate family.

I wouldn't have had it any other way.

The photographer did a phenomenal job,
 Since I cant share the whole video..I made little clips with my phone, of course not the best quality that way but its the best I can do.

A song for Sienna

This song randomly came on my Pandora station a few weeks ago. I gasp when I saw the title,  the melody is just so brought me to tears
 (Thanks hormones)

I play it for her all the time, 
I hope she loves it as much as I do.

of course I had to take a pic of my computer screen & show Danny
because I'm a nerd like that :)

Cloth diapering

Danny & I decided to take on cloth diapering,
Some of you may judge and think its gross and that's fine...everyone is entitled to their opinions.

I'm aware that it will be unpleasant at times with #2
but if its better for my baby, saves my husband thousands of dollars and is better for the environment then that is all the convincing I'll ever need.

Not to mention they're adorable :)

The nursery..

While I was in NY for my Baby Shower, Danny build shelves in the baby's closet and put together the crib so now that that's set up, we are officially getting started on making our Princess the perfect nursery...

Here are some of my inspirations..

ah let the fun begin! we're so excited to get our crafty on :)

I blame this song for feeling mushy today..

I love this song, 
I listen to it so often that I think Sienna started to recognize it... every time I play it I feel her move! well, it could also be cuz I blast it! 

well baby girl, this song is from Mommy to your Daddy
and since I get to feel you move, I'll play it even more now.

Some of the many reason I am psyched to be having a girl...

Need I say more? :)

Bumpdate! 22 weeks

Past the halfway mark! Its so exciting that slowly but surely our little one is inching closer to making her debut. Whats going on this week you ask?

How far along? 22 weeks
Size of little miss? A papaya, according to the doctor she is measuring ahead for her gestational age, shes in the 94% percentile!  
Maternity Clothes? Nope, just been buying new tops in size M and invested in a belly band since some of my jeans are getting a little snug
Weight Gain? 10 lbs...luckily its all belly!
Stretch Marks? Nope, and I pray genetics are good to me, my sis has none
Gender? ALL our big ultrasound to measure her, another technician confirmed it :) bring on the adorable baby clothes!
Movement? Shes a lot busier at night, at the doctors visit we got pics of her doing a headstand..looks like we have a little gymnast on our hands
Sleep? Trying to get at least 8 to 9 hours every night. My sweet hubby gives me nightly foot rubs which puts me right to bed
Food cravings? Carbs, carb, carbs...big fan of bread!
What I miss? Date night with hubby when I could indulge in a few cocktails over dinner and the ability to stay up late
Symptoms? heartburn, and no I don't believe the stupid wvies tale that it means lots of hair, granted she probably will have a lot of hair but that is not why. I think she just enjoys lounging on my stomach.
Best moment of the week? Catching a big kick on video :) those make my day!

21.3 weeks

showered with love

     Our little family of {almost} 3 was showered with insane amounts of love today.... My sister Monica, threw the most gorgeous shower in honor of our Sienna.  I was completely overwhelmed with the time, effort, and funding she put into this day and will be forever grateful.

Thank you SIS!!!

& of course, huge thanks from both Dan & I to all you ladies who came and spoiled our little girl  rotten!
This cake was as fun to look at as it was delicious to eat!

My little helper Olivia 

So glad I got to see this lovely lady :)
