Merry Christmas--8 months

Today Mommy is 8 months pregnant with you and so thankful to have had a happy and healthy 8 months carrying you!  It is SO hard to believe that in 8 weeks or less you will be here, in our arms!!  Daddy and I have really been enjoying our break from work preparing for you!  Daddy painted your room a bright pretty yellow yesterday morning!  I love the color and know you will too.
You have already started to get gifts for Christmas, Nani and Grandpa Phil got you your snugabunny swing, it was all set up when we went to visit them and it's perfect.  Aunt Nancy and Uncle Joe got you a VERY cute stuffed monkey and Aunt Megan's familiy got you a zebra sleeper!  Mommy and Daddy of course got you clothes, a couple little toys and a pink organizer for your room. 
Here's Mommy at 32 weeks pregnant with you.

What a way to start Winter Break...

Boy do I have a story for you...
  Tuesday night around 10 Mommy started not feeling very well.  From that time until Wednesday morning Mommy was sick throwing up every hour and wasn't able to keep anything down, not even water! After calling the Dr, Mommy was told to head in to labor and delivery to check on you and to make sure Mommy wasn't dehydrated.  Daddy stayed home from work to take care of Mommy so he drove us to the hospital.  Mommy got all checked in and hooked up to a monitor and gave blood to check for dehydration.  The monitor showed that Mommy was having small contractions and the blood test showed that I was really dehydrated.  Luckily the nurses and Mommy's Dr. were very quick to get me started on IV fluids and some tummy medicine to help with my nausea.  After 1 bag of fluids Mommy was feeling better and the contractions were gone but the tests showed we were still dehydrated so needless to say we were at the hospital til almost 7 Wednesday night and had 2 more IV bags of fluid!  What a long day!
Daddy, Nani and I were so stressed waiting all day at the hospital hoping I would get better and praying that you were ok in there although Mommy was so sick.
Luckily Mommy and you are fine and almost fully recovered, almost eating normal foods again and trying to catch up on rest, but that was NOT the way Mommy wanted to start her winter vacation.

31 weeks

Mommy is 31 weeks pregnant with you!  Time is going by slowly now days, you are getting so big sometimes you hurt Mommy, especially when you move up really close to Mommy's ribs.  Your kicks aren't as strong lately either, its more like a hard roll that you are doing in there.  We are gearing up for Christmas this week, getting ready to spend some time with family and Mommy is going to do some much needing relaxing!  Hopefully I will get some things done in your room as well these next couple of weeks.

Baby Bump Photo Shoot Today

Today Daddy's friend from work took some pictures of me, Daddy and you. ;) Well kinda of you, more like Mommy's big baby bump.  It was very surreal for Mommy and Daddy because the last time we got photos taken from someone it was when we got married a year and a half ago, and then next time we take pictures like that YOU will be actually in them!!!! Mommy and Daddy are so anxious to see the pictures and cannot wait to show them to you one day!
I love you!

29 weeks...already?!

Time sure has been flying lately.  Daddy and I keep saying we can't believe we are getting ready for your arrival; setting up your room, buying you clothes (LOTS of clothes), and reading about your fun developments in Mommy's tummy!  You have truly been such a blessing for us and we cannot even begin to tell you how much we love you!  It is so much fun to feel you moving all around and you make Daddy and I laugh because when he sings to you, you kick Mommy so hard. I think it's because you don't like Daddy's song choices (he's been making up his own songs) but Daddy thinks your kicking out of excitement! =)
Mommy and Daddy have their first Baby Care class next Tuesday night.  We will get to learn all about how to take care of you once you're here!  I cannot believe your due date is less that 11 weeks away!  Mommy cannot wait to see your beautiful face and hold you in her arms!!!
I love you more than words, my precious Baby Girl!
