Baby Rushing 22 weeks!


Hey guys! I know its been awhile since I last posted but I took a month off to focus on myself and my new marriage. August was a rough month for me but I am back now after a much needed break and look forward to posting every week again. I hope everyone is doing good.

A few things happened since I last update. I got married to the love of my life and father of my child, we had a gender reveal party with our close friends/family and we even started organizing the nursery (which still needs to be painted and is nowhere near finished.)

It feels like yesterday when we found out we were expecting a beautiful baby girl, due January 7th, 2018. I couldn't believe my eyes when we finally knew the gender of our sweet baby. Denon and I had a gender reveal party at 16 weeks and we were so completely overwhelmed with excitement. We didn't care what we were having we just wanted her to be healthy. A month and a half later, here we are at 22 weeks and one day. Words cant begin to express how excited I am. I have been going absolutely crazy! Every baby I come across, my heart just melts. Every little dress I see at the department stores, I cant help but buy. I used to be so scared about her arrival and so afraid to go through labor pains but now I cant help but look past all of that and get to the end when she's in my arms at last.

I felt her kick for the first time when I was 18 weeks. I was sitting at work and I kept feeling these tiny little kicks and at first I thought they were muscle spasms in my stomach but they kept happening so I looked into it and what do you know? Other mams said they felt the same thing as well when they felt their little ones moving. I texted Denon the second I was sure it was her in there making these little movements and kicks and he was in shock the second he got home and put his hand on my stomach. It was the sweetest moment.

Ever since then, she hasn't stopped moving! She is a very active baby! Soon after the kicking started, we went in for our second ultrasound. It was absolutely insane how much she was moving around on the monitor. I honestly fell so in love the second I got to see her little ears and long limbs. She already has so much character. She is definately going to keep her daddy and I on our toes, that's for sure. 

Dream big photo was painted by me. 

Sweet girl of mine, we love you to the moon and back already. I am so excited to become a mother to you and to give you the world. You came at the most perfect time and i'll never be able to thank your daddy enough for gifting me the most beautiful gift ever. January couldn't get here any sooner.


P.S. Any unique or beautiful girl name suggestions? I am so stuck on names. I have a list of my own but I want to make sure I'm not overlooking any other ones. We aren't going to name her until she's born either so Id like to go in with a list of names that I really like. The naming process is SOOOO HARD! How do people do it?!
Happy Labor Day <3

  8. Congrats on making this so far. I remember being like that before my daughter came. And I didn't really care about the sex either. I just wanted her to be happy and healthy. but it truth I would have loved her no matter what.
