5 years and more in love than ever!

Instead of buying one of those $5 cards that eventually goes in the trash, I decided to make a electronic memory that would last a lot longer.

My sweet husband. When we met over 7 years ago, I would have never thought we would be where we are today. I knew within a few weeks that I wanted to marry you. I'm so blessed and thankful you decided you wanted to put up with me too. I look back and remember the long distance, the weekly letters I looked forward to receiving, the surprise of my life when you actually moved to Florida, and the fairytale moment when you swept me off my feet and asked me to be your bride. I wish our wedding would have lasted forever as it was one of the best days of my life. Now 5 years after we said I Do I am more in love with you than ever before. We have gone through our fair share of troubles, but you have been there by my side through every second of financial, educational, infertility, and every health struggle we have had. We have always said from the moment we met we would put God first in everything we do and that is what has made us come out stronger through it all. I am absolutely honored to have gone through multiple moves and career changes with you. I love that you are a man of God a man of integrity, Sweet, sensitive, compassionate, strong, loyal, and honest. I not only love the husband you are but the father you are to our daughter and daughter on the way. Adaleigh is so lucky to have a daddy that is as hands on and involved as you are. My heart lights up every time I hear you ask her for a kiss or a hug or hear you tell her how beautiful she is or how much you love her. I can not wait to meet our new daughter in August and share the new experiences as a family of 4 together. Thank you for loving me All OF ME the way I am and I can not wait to see what the next 50+ years hold for us.

29 week update!

How Far Along: 29 weeks

Baby's Size: Butternut Squash- ~17 inches (head to foot) just under 3 lbs.
Symptoms: Feeling good!  Braxton hicks contractions on and off. Hot as heck this summer!
Sleep: Still sleeping good except with no covers because I'm always hot now. Waking up a few times to use the bathroom. Rolling around a lot to find a comfortable position.
Total Weight Gain: about 8lbs.
Belly Size: I feel smaller this time although I feel like it has gotten much bigger this week. I have a lot of people still telling me I'm small for 29 weeks although I don't feel small at all.
Maternity Clothes: I'm in shorts and tanks every day almost unless I get lucky and can just wear a bating suit. This mama is hot all the time.
Food Cravings: Sweets Chocolate
Gender: Girl
Movement: Still a lot of movement. She feels transverse or breech although she is swimming a lot still I think. I have a Dr apt on Monday so hopefully we will know more about her position then.  
What I miss: This pregnancy I am chasing my 16 month old around so I don't get to just relax when I want to. Sometimes I wish I could just have one weekend to myself to do nothing!
 What I'm Looking Forward to this Week: Doctor's Appointment.
