Thanksgiving Weekend

Mommy and Daddy had the absoulte BEST Thanksgiving weekend!  We started the holiday break celebrating our Anniversary!  Mommy and Daddy have been together for 5 years now!  Time has really flown by and we couldn't be happier with what we have been blessed with in those 5 years.  Thursday we celebrated Thanksgiving.  Its crazy to think that next Thanksgiving dinner you will be here and get to eat the yummy turkey!  Mommy and Daddy went to Grandpa & Grandma Cook's first, your cousin Ashari and Aunt Kailea were in town from Minnesota.  It was fun to visit with them, Ashari is going to be 1 soon which means the two of you will be a little over a year a part in age.  Here's Mommy and Daddy playing with your cousin.

After our visit we stopped by Nannie's for dinner then headed out for Black Friday shopping.  We got you some cute things of course and Mommy was pooped by time we got home at 1:30am!  Friday morning we woke up and headed to your 3d sonogram! (see that post)
Satruday we met up with Aunt Keke and Ryan for lunch.  We ate mexican, Mommy's fave!  Aunt Keke brought you a cute Northwest bib.  Northwest is where Mommy and Daddy went to college and met eachother.  You are so loved by so many people!

Saturday night we got to watch your cousin Ashari.  It was so fun and definitely gave us an idea of what it will be like we you're here, little sleep but worth it! =)
Here's Daddy playing with your cousin in their jammies!  Daddy was so good with cousin Ashari, he's going to be the BEST daddy!!!

3d Sonogram

This morningMommy and Daddy met up with Nannie and Grandpa at Belly Images for your 3d sonogram.  A 3d sonogram is so much different than the one we got when we found out you were a girl, although that one was amazing too, this one we got to actually SEE your beautiful face!
It was so unreal to see you on that screen, you look like the perfect combination of Mommy and Daddy.  You did so many funny things during the sonogram; stuck your tongue out, opened your little eyes, waved to us, smiled at us and made such cute little expressions! It was amazing to see you, Mommy and Nannie cried at the sight of you and Daddy and Grandpa just smiled!  You are so beautiful, of course Mommy is biased but you're perfect already and I cannot wait to see you in person in 12 weeks!
Here are some pictures of you from the sonogram.

27 weeks

Here's Mommy at 27 weeks pregnant!  You are getting bigger by the hour it seems, you are around 15 inches — more than a foot long!  You weigh just over two pounds.
You might even recognize Mommy's voice by now.  Mommy is starting to really feel a lot of pressure in her lower tummy and my legs are starting to hurt sometimes.  I also think we are starting to need more sleep again like we did in the first trimester.  Oh well, only 3 months left!

This week mommy is 26 weeks pregnant with you! Time is sure flying.  Next week is already Thanksgiving and before we know it, Christmas will be here, New Year's, Valentine's Day and then YOU!!!!  That will be the best day of all!!  It is so hard to believe that at this time next year Mommy will officially be, a Mommy!  I cannot wait to teach you things and love on you!  Mommy made an appointment next Friday, November 30 for a 3D sonogram, that is when Daddy and I will see your pretty little face inside Mommy's tummy.  I am SOOO excited!  Here's Mommy at 26 weeks.
PS-- check out my scarf.  I got it for my birthday from my friends at school!

Baby Shower Meeting & Registry

This morning Mommy, Nannie and Aunt Nancy met to talk about your Baby Shower.  We decided on a pink and zebra theme.  It was so much fun meeting with them and planning this day, I cannot wait to celebrate your upcoming arrival in a couple of months!  After the meeting Mommy picked up Daddy and we went to register for you.  Boy was there a lot for us to do!! Luckily Mommy's friend Amanda sent her a cool check off list that helped a lot.  It was a little stressful planning on what we need for you when you aren't here yet, but it was SUPER exciting at the same time.  Daddy took a couple pictures of Mommy signing up for your registry at Babies R Us.

My little jumping bean at 25 Weeks

Mommy is 25 weeks today, and if you cannot tell from the picture you are getting BIG!  You move around and kick all the time now.  You love it when Mommy teaches reading at school around 10:30, you move around while I am reading to the kids and while I am teaching reading groups too.  You also love it when Daddy comes home and hangs out with Mommy before bed.  You move a lot after dinner time when Daddy is talking to you and Mommy is relaxed.  We even saw you moving from the outside of Mommy's belly.
