This past week, Daniel and I celebrated 4 years of marriage (August 5, 2005). I can't believe how fast time has gone by. I love Daniel more and more each year and this past year has been the best, thanks to Miss Alexis! After celebrating our anniversary, we are looking forward to spending our 5th year of marriage as a family of three. I am married to an amazing man, and I am very lucky to have him. I feel so blessed that God has provided me with such a wonderful family. I can't wait to see our new addition!
My mom stopped by the day before our anniversary and brought us some flowers and a gift. She also showed us a very special gift for Alexis! She had planned on waiting until the baby shower, but decided she couldn't wait another minute. My mom picked up crocheting during my pregnancy and she started off with a blanket (made big enough for the whole family, instead of a newborn, hahaha) and a baby hat (that's big enough for Shaq's head, not joking). Her special gift to Alexis was a crocheted dress, hat, and booties. And to my amazement, they were perfect!!! Just the right size! They were absolutely beautiful and I am so proud of my mom for her hard work. She had some help from one of our very talented relatives (who taught her how to crochet). Alexis will look adorable in this outfit! Thanks Mommy! I love you!
I am now 32 weeks and Alexis is growing bigger and bigger. Everything looked fine at my last doctor's appointment and the doctor said that he believes Alexis is already head down. Hopefully she stays head down. She is moving a lot and I am still loving every moment of my pregnancy. Even the pressure on my bladder and baby elbows in my side. I am also having a lot of Braxton-Hicks contractions (non-painful practice contractions). It's crazy how hard my stomach can get. Here is a pic of my belly. Hopefully I wont be ginormous by the time I deliver. Enjoy!!!
