Getting Huge!

I'm almost 26 weeks! We took these pictures yesterday, so I'm actually only 25.5 it really matters! I keep growing, so baby must be doing well! I have my monthly OB appt this Wednesday, and hopefully my flu shots as well. Schools around here have been closing because more than 25% of their kids are out sick...and I coach at a high school!! I'm trying to not get too worried, but I'm making sure to wash my hands like crazy and keep germs off me :-)

Steven and I had a crazy weekend. I spend Friday and Saturday in Nashville at a volleyball tournament, and Steven worked all day Saturday from home. Yesterday we had a nice day together though, the sun was actually out for the first time in 2 weeks! We went to church, organized the bonus "man" room...which I invaded with my scrapbooking stuff because my craft room is now a nursery...cleaned out the garage, and I actually cooked a real meal for dinner for the first time in a while!

Steven's commander gets back this week, so hopefully he'll be able to focus on his XO job and not both his and the CO's. Maybe that will mean less work for him in the evenings...I sure hope so!
Have a great week!

Birthday Fun!

I have some of the best friends around! For my birthday we went to our favorite sushi restaurant, Kohana, on Wednesday night. The food was delicious and the company was great! We always order about 8 different rolls and pass them around...yum...just writing about it makes me hungry...but that's pretty normal these days! Thanks ladies for your generosity and such a sweet celebration! Love you guys!

Family, Fun and Fondue!

Another great weekend to put in the books! Mom and Dad came down on Friday night and we had such a fun weekend. Saturday started with a delicious breakfast (thanks to Erin's cream cheese croissant good!) then the men went Truck shopping while Mom and I hit the stores as well. Steven's mom gave us this beautiful cradle that all of her kids slept in as infants, and my mom is going to make some bedding for it. We shopped and found some beautiful eyelet to make it classic and pretty...we can't wait to see the finished result!
After shopping, we loaded up, went to Nashville to check out a few more car dealerships, then hit the Melting Pot for dinner. That is one of our favorite's fondue...and it is a treat! Mom and Dad loved it and hopefully we can make it a yearly tradition when they come to visit!
Sunday we went to early church and then they hit the road for Ft. Wayne. It went by so quickly, but we had a great time. Thanks for making the trip!

The Melting you can tell by our empty plates...dinner was delicious!
Mom and Dad...couldn't get a pic without dad blinking, so here's the best one! :-)

23 weeks pregnant!

Labor Day Festivities

We had a wonderful and restful weekend at the cabin this past weekend. The cabin was even more beautiful than we imagined and the company was fantastic! I didn't get many girlfriends are much better photographers than I am, so I'm waiting to copy all of their photos. Until are just a few!

The men before their mountain bike excursion...wish i had a picture of them all sweaty and smelly when they returned! They went to Sallee (sp) which is some famous biking park and had a great time!

The girls! This was just before we went to the Cirque de Chine show in Pigeon Forge.

Steven and Sofia. We both had a fun playing with the kids, they were so good all weekend!

22 Weeks

I'm 22 weeks...5 1/2 months already!! Feeling great! I had an OB appt. yesterday and I actually measured 1 cm larger than average. Also, I've FINALLY started to feel the little man hasn't been a whole lot, but he's definitely in there. I guess he's just going to be laid back, like his dad! :-)

We've had an insane couple weeks. I've been swamped with work, and volleyball. Steven's new job has kept him crazy busy...waking up at 3:00am, working til 6:00 at least, then coming home and working until 10:00pm or later at home! He's been in the field and trying to keep his Company organized and working. We need a vacation!

Good think we're taking one...starting in less than 24 hours!! We're going to the Smoky Mountains/Gatlinburg this weekend to stay in a chalet/cabin with 4 other couples. Here's a link to the place we're looks amazing and with 5 couples, it's pretty cheap!! The guys are going to this famous mountain biking place and us girls are going to hit the outlet malls! We're also all going to a Cirque show on Saturday afternoon in Gatlinburg, and just planning on taking it easy, playing games, and relaxing with great friends. We cannot wait!
