Missing her Daddy!!

Just wanted to give everyone an update on Daddy Rob. He has graduated Basic Training and has now moved on to Tech School. I have to say I have one amazing husband that still makes me feel loved even thousands of miles away. I am having a hard time being away this long, but I know God has HUGE plans and it will all be worth it. Being away has made me appreciate our relationship so much more. I am elated that our love is this strong after five years and I pray it will continue to grow stronger.

Rob is very involved with our baby girl. Although he is not here for the ultrasounds, he has jumped in head first in all the planning. Rob designed what her room would look like and has been very involved with her name and anything we register for or buy. I think he is going to make an amazing father to our little girl.

We skype every Saturday and talk every night. Rob is doing great in school and can't wait to be done and be back with his family.

We are hopefully 1-2 weeks away from knowing where we will be stationed. We are both very anxious about that and are ready to start planning!!!

16 weeks!!

I stole this from another friends blog, but I love it. Hope you enjoy it too!!


How Far Along: 16 weeks 1 day

Baby's Size: Avocado (~4.5 inches)

Symptoms: Tired in the evenings but don't need naps. Round ligament pain when I cough and sneeze when stretched out. Hungry.

Sleep: Sleeping better.  Crazy dreams (as usual). Trying not to toss and turn. 

Maternity Clothes
: Love the pants with the elastic band that goes up over your belly. The ones that go below my belly hurt. I bought a pair of yoga pants yesterday and I think I might live in them!!                                                                                      

Best moment this week: Creating a registry with my mom. I can not believe this is real. I actually have a beautiful healthy baby growing inside of me.

Food Cravings: No real cravings but sweets, carbs and anything sour are what sound good to me. ( I know I know all the bad stuff!!)

Gender: GIRL!!!! Rob and I are both so excited!!!! Rob has already dreamed up her serene lavender paradise of a room and I am indulging in watching him get excited about our princess to come.

Movement: Felt her move for the first time!! What an amazing feeling. Its actually a really strange feeling. I have felt her two nights in a row. I am in heaven!

What I miss: Being able to wear all the clothes in my closet. However I love being pregnant and showing off the baby bump!

Milestones: Finding out we are having a little girl and feeling her move. Both amazing things.
