All Things Baby and a Happy Birthday to Me!

Why is it that.. when you are pregnant, everything turns baby? It's just too much fun to talk about babies, baby names, look at baby clothes... and blogging is the last thing on your mind!! I am 20 weeks and 1 day today! I am just over my halfway mark. It seems to be going by so fast. But is also seems like I am not growing anymore. I have an 18 week picture.. but my 19 week is still on my camera.. and my 20 week must be taken today!

3/28/10 exactly 18 weeks

I turned 26.. and had the most amazing birthday. Sam was sooo sweet (as always), my parents, siblings and friends all went way over the top. Sam even ordered me the most beautiful birthday cake from a gourmet lil cupcake shop. It was pound cake with cream cheese frosting. Mmm!

Alabama is absolutely beautiful this time of year. The weather has been between 70 and 80 for the last month or so. We have enjoyed spending some wonderful time together.. but are anxious for Sam to finally start flight school. It will be sad to see our super mellow days go... maybe even a little more sad for me! He starts tomorrow... so it will be no time before I am posting about his first flight! Yay!!

Our little one has been a wild swimmer, dancer, and kicker. I am not sure what she is doing in my belly but I feel her all day long. I felt her for the first time at about 15/16 weeks. So It has been weeks of feeling her flutter and I LOVE it! It makes it so much more fun. The days where she is calm I get worried and so I poke her.. Sam tells me I am not allowed to poke her cause she is probably sleeping.. but I can't help it.

I have been busy working, doing my graphic design classes, trying to get walks and jogs in most days, and well... growing a baby. Sam is memorizing and studying, working out, and spending time with me when he can.
