29 weeks

My little Facebook ticker reminded me this morning... happy 29 weeks! It's crazy to think our little Stella, once the size of a sweet pea, is now the size of a squash. (Only two more fruit sizes to compare her to until she's here - LOL) She's taking advantage of having a bit of extra room - her nudges and movement are certainly getting stronger. Her sleeping habits are also a bit more in sync than before which is encouraging - when they started, she was tumbling at 2am.

According to, her five senses are fully functional and brain development is underway. Brad and I talk to her out loud on a regular basis and she really enjoys listening (and actively responds to) to the 'Adele' station on my Pandora account... girl has great taste already!

Showered with love

This past weekend was our first baby shower in Summerville, SC and we had such a great time! It's incredibly comforting to know this sweet girl has so many people that love her already. Here's a few pictures of the festivities:

pink & green turtles? yes, please!

It's no secret that I love eBay & Etsy but now, they are my go-to places to check for pink/green/turtle stuff for Little Miss. This could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it:


See what I mean? :)

"Did you get that memo?"

This movie describes my today in more ways than I'd care to admit.

What a week!

Happy Memorial Day!

Some of us have today off (I'm not one of these lucky individuals but hey, it's alright) but I hope we'll pause today to remember all of our amazing soldiers who remind us every day that our freedom is far from free. It comes at the HIGHEST cost. Thank you to my mom, dad and family members that have served/continue to serve the greatest country on Earth. I love you all dearly!

This week is also very special because we are doing a LOT of celebrating:
