20 Weeks and HALF WAY THERE!

July 21, 2010

It’s really unbelievable…in only 20 weeks from now we’ll be holding a little boy in our arms. That’s insane!


I’m feeling great and loving being pregnant. I’m at a much more productive place than I was when I was feeling so sick and exhausted all the time. I’m feeling SO MUCH movement now!! I love it! Over the last month, it’s progressed from “flutters” to flip flops. Now Brandon and feel our little guy through my stomach, and if we sit there and stare, we can see my belly flinch when he kicks. Such a miracle…


Some of you know this, but Brandon and I made a decision that our first way of putting our marriage before this kid would be to finish decorating our bedroom and get it exactly the way we want it BEFORE we buy anything for the nursery. We just believe that it’s biblical AND best for all members of a family when the marriage is the first priority within a home. I know it’ll be really hard to keep this going once he’s here, but it’s our main goal.

So…long story short, our bedroom is coming along nicely. Maybe I’ll post some of our DIY projects if I get a chance. This is our new bed, and it’s (drumroll) a KING!:


So, here it is…the 19 weeks belly shot:


Yep…he’s growing!


In the last several weeks we’ve had several exciting happenings…


The girls in our Bible study planned a getaway to Tucson to hang out and get some good down time together. We try to plan something fun to do every time someone new is pregnant. It was a great time…(you ladies are awesome!)



Brandon and I made last minute plans to go to México with a good friend of his from college and her husband. They so generously allowed us to crash in their 2-bedroom condo on the beach in Cabo San Lucas. It was an absolutely wonderful 5 days of nothing but good food, sun, and beautiful views!





A couple weekends ago we went up to the cabin with my family to get some much needed yard work done. It was gorgeous! While it was 115º in Phoenix, it was about 88º and sprinkling in Christopher Creek…

That’s all folks!
