Showers have come and gone, now we're waiting on Bentley!

I had my shower in NH Sept 12th, exactly a year (to the day!) after my bridal shower. We had a great turn out and it was so awesome to see everyone who came. Thanks to my mom for throwing it! Here are some pictures :)

The cake made my Auntie Jennie:

Favors made by Grana:

All the gifts, Thanks everyone!!

Quilt made by his great-grammy:

His bedding that my mom got for him (I LOVE IT!!)

His first pair of Carhartt's, just like daddy!

Amazing mobile that Tara made and sent up to NH!

Diaper cake! (not with diapers though since we're cloth diapering)

Maternity pictures! And an overdue update.

Last weekend Ryan and I headed to Wilmington the the Davis'. We went to see all the different spots where they film One Tree Hill (only the best show, ever!) It was so awesome to see the places where all the actors actual go and be able to know what episode it was in and what they did there. While we were there we also shot some maternity pictures. I only have 3 right now because Jena is (as expected! fully pre-occupied with her hubby and baby boy.) So, here they are, enjoy!

I'm now 30 weeks pregnant, only about 10 weeks (69 days!) until my due date and only 7 weeks until Bentley is considered full term. I can't believe it has gone by this fast and I am only a few weeks away from meeting my baby boy and seeing his precious face. I can't wait to snuggle with him!

Here is my belly from 12 weeks up to now, I never thought I could stretch this much! And I still have more growing to do!

Tomorrow we head up to Delaware for the weekend to stay with my best friend at her families house. We love going to see them because it gets us out of Jacksonville for a bit and they are the closest thing to family that we have within a reasonable distance. Next Tuesday I fly to NH for about 2 weeks. While I'm there my mom is throwing us a baby shower (yay!!). Brittani (the bestie) and her parents will be driving up from DE for the weekend of the shower and driving me and all our baby furnitire back to DE where I'll stay for a few days then Britt and I will head down to NC again for my shower here. By the time I get back I'll only have about 6-7 weeks left until B-man gets here!

We're moooooving!!!

And we are SO excited!!! We got a new house over on Midway Park (base housing). We move in Monday and it can't get here fast enough!

Our house is the left side.

And here is my 16 week picture:

We went to the Dr's yesterday and the baby's heart beat was 152 and I was measuring at 18 weeks. I hated the dr I saw and will make sure I NEVER see him again! He was horrible.

Welcome home LCpl Badger!

Last Tuesday my best friend Brittani drove from DE here to us in NC. This is the third time she has come to visit us since we moved here..and I must say this was the happiest, most looked forward to visit we've had! Her boyfriend Rory left for Afghanistan back in October 2 days after Ryan and I moved here. I'm so glad I got to be here for her that is a picture of him leaving. See the tear running down her face? It broke my heart.Fast forward 7 months to this past monday and...HE'S HOME!!! We went to bed about 9 Sunday night, she slept about 2 hours and I woke up at 4 (I was so excited for her to see him!) Watching her wait for him and seeing her finally reunited with her love was so awesome!
Unloading the bags..this is where everyone started to freak out!

Rory's bag happened to be thrown right in front of us!
Their song started playing (which was also painted on his sign) then his bus pulled around the corner.

Rory is the Marine all the way to the right over by the cones.

And they see each other <3

Welcome home LCpl Badger, it's great to have you back!

14 weeks!

And I felt the baby! It was awesome, I wasn't sure what it was at first but after explaining to a few people what I felt they said that it was the baby moving! Here is my 14 week pictures. Just and FYI, I'm sick of people telling me we're having if you're going to say it, just don't.

An overdue update!

Today I am 12w4d and my "morning sickness" is getting worse! I really hope it goes away soon, or at least isn't as bad. I was sick on Friday with a fun at all! I'm glad that is over with. Hubby went fishing on friday for work, they gave his platoon a choice of going on a battalion 9 mile hike, or go fishing. Of course, Ryan picked fishing! He had a good time and he and his friends want to go back next weeked. Here he is with the first fish of the day!
Here is his friend Gibbons with the only fish he caught! It was about 2 inches big.
We got our first ultra sound when I was 10w1d so it's been a few weeks, I've been horrible at updating this, sorry! Here is our little love bug:
We already love our baby SO much! And we really can't wait for November to get here! We find out what the baby is in June, it seems so far away right now! I can't wait to find out so we can start calling the baby by its appropriate name and not "it" and "the baby". And so I can give into my shopping addiction and start buying this little bean some cute clothes!

Here is my 12 week picture, it's starting to pop out now. I'm only 5'1" so I think I'm showing a little quicker because really, there's no place for it to go but out! I haven't gained any weight yet, I've actually lost 4 pounds! I think it's because I haven't been feeling well so I'm not eating as much as I used too, no worries though, little one is getting lots of food!
