Friday Frenzy

I meant to post this on Friday but I forgot to hit 'publish'... isn't that the story of my life?
  • The latest and greatest 3D sonogram from yesterday's appointment:
Nathan thinks he/she looks like me... and they told us it's sporting some hair! The blob on the left is the placenta which the nugget was happily snuggled up to the entire time. The sonographer even took a cowbell, yes a freaking COWBELL, and banged it against my belly to get it to move. The babe did a little moving and shaking but stayed nestled in there making this the best shot she could get. It's already sooo stubborn; just like dad.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies. Can't get enough of them. I follow the recipe on the back of the Nestle bag and add 1 packet of Jell-O Vanilla Pudding to the dry ingredients (Ms. Kristin gave me that tip and I definitely thinks it makes them especially moist). They are dee-lish. And I wonder why I've gained so much weight. Whoopsie.
  • Baby Names. We have a list going and there are definitely a couple of names we really like but I feel like we should keep looking. There are just soooo many names out there it's giving me anxiety.

One moment please

I have a confession. Even though we already got married I still like looking at wedding blogs. I'm a sucker for a good wedding and love seeing how each wedding can be so perfectly different and special to each and every bride. The photos are usually stunning as well.

There are so many times at weddings where you may not have seen it for yourself but the photographer captures it seamlessly and that moment moves you to tears or makes you laugh. Well, I found a website that shares those perfect moments.

Here's a little "About Us" from Moment Junkie

Moment Junkie is a blog devoted to showcasing the best in contemporary wedding photojournalism, with a focus on moments between people that are timeless, heartbreaking, hilarious, or all of the above. We love gorgeous portraits and well-planned details, but so often we’ve found that the photos we hold most dear — the ones we would give anything to hold onto — are those that encapsulate a memorable moment or remind us of how we felt as much as they show us how we looked. So we’re here to tell those stories, with submissions from some of the best working photographers around today.

This makes me sooooo happy. xo

One shot wonder

Yeah, I've been off in my own world the past several months. Sorry. I miss blogging though. I miss taking pictures too. I've started approximately 50 blogposts but haven't pushed 'Publish' on any of them for some odd reason. A lot has happened since I left off... Biggest news: I'm pregnant. Let's just say we had a really good time at our wedding. Sure, this little nugget wasn't planned but we knew we wanted to start a family sooner than later so we just happened to start RIGHT AWAY. Wham. Bam. Thank you, Ma'am.

I won't bore you with the details but I was sick the first trimester (hence the last post being about going to the ER with hives... oh, we knew I was preggo but didn't know if the babe was the culprit - luckily haven't had them since), second trimester breezed by with getting fat and here we are nearly 7 weeks away from meeting our sweet little one.

Is it a boy or a girl? Beats me. We decided to wait and see. I think we are leaning towards boy.  It's pretty surreal thinking there might be a tiny penis and a set of balls inside of me. Yeah, I went there.  

Only 18 weeks here but I just love it's little profile.
