Thoughts on being a mom

So I got this email from some Baby Website saying that to be a good mom there were 10 things I needed to know/do.

One of them was about a snot sucker. I always thought the little booger bulb was the only way to go.

Yes I am blogging about a snot sucker. I am officially a mommy to be.

Well apparently the email said there was a new better way. Technology invented in Italy.

Either way... Ty came home to a teary-eyed pregnant wife thinking she was going to be a terrible mother because she couldn't do Step 1 of the 10 steps. I didn't even get to the other steps.

Ty calmly cleared things up for me by saying there was no way we were purchasing that thing and that I would never have to do that! I felt prety silly for letting it freak me out! ha! Hormones!

Even our mothers agreed that I would never have to do this. The $2 bulbs work just fine!

Anyway, if one of you has this or thinks it's great well you can try to convince me otherwise, but it still freaks me out.

My new growing Belly...

Well ok upon many requests I'll start posting my new and growing belly! I LOVE it! Although I still think it's growing at a crazy fast pace!

Here's what I've documented thus far:

Weeks 6-9

Week 10

 Baby Blob at 10 weeks

Can't see Baby? How about now:

We couldn't see a baby so our friends in Italy (Luis & Melissa) drew this for us! They even drew a heart around the white blob that was the heart beating! Thanks guys! We love you!!
Week 11 (Can you see the energy returning)

Week 12 (3 months)

Baby T at nearly 13 Weeks (3 months & 1 week)

Week 13

I guess not much has changed to the naked eye, but to me it feels like it grows everyday! (I guess that's the point huh?!) :-)

We had another ultra sound last week. Baby is healthy & we saw him/her hiccup. It was amazing how it went from looking like a blob to looking like a baby so fast! The Dr. took the time to show us everything! Fingers, toes, spine, face, femur, ribs, etc. It was really fun and we also heard the heart beat for the first time! It sounded like du-dum-du-dum-du-dum-hiccup ha!

We find out if Baby T is a boy or a girl on November 5th! We'll share the news with everyone on November 6th. Unless like my mom & Marlene you are so impatient that you try to call the Dr. and ACT like me! I don't think the Dr. is going to fall for..."um Hi I forgot if my baby was a girl or a boy." but apparently we will see if he does or not!

1st Trimester exhaustion & sickness is coming to an end. I feel better and better everyday! I think I'm nearly back to my old bouncy self. Well until 9pm when I can't keep my eyes open to sing goodnight to Caby with Ty. I'll try to post his new hit songs! He is already such a great Daddy!

Oh and don't forget to vote whether you think Baby T ("Caby") is a boy or a girl! The poll is on the right side of this page!

3 Down 1 to go!

We are SO excited to have found out on Saturday that our friends Sarah & Richard are having a Baby Boy! Gabriel John!

We can't wait to meet him!

Here's a few pics from the Gender Reveal party and a link to their blog if you want to see the video!

I LOVE Gender Reveal Parties! They are so so much fun! Although the anticipation of waiting a week to find out was TORTURE!!!

Here's the AMAZING cake made by the Mom-2B Sarah herself!

We had no idea....

I was on Team Pink with my good friend Evelyn Grace!

Mommy & Daddy to be getting ready to cut the cake & reveal to all if it's a pink baby or a blue baby!

And... it was BLUE!!!!!!

YAY for Blue Babies!!!

Happy glowing Mommy 2B! Congrats to you both! We can't wait to meet your bundle of joy! We are so very excited for you guys!

Gabriel John...we await your arrival!

And in case you didn't see that the CAKE was BLUE...

HA! Now vote on the right side of the page --> on whether you think WE will have a BOY or a GIRL! Our big reveal will be November 6th! (The poll will therefore close BEFORE we go to the Dr. as I am SURE I will slip and tell someone otherwise!)
