3 Years & Counting!


Today is our 3 year wedding anniversary!





It's so weird...It doesn't seem like it's been that long! HaHa!




38 Weeks!

As of yesterday I was 38 weeks! I am at full term now and am soooo ready for our little lady to come out! I am feeling ginormous and cannot wait to be normal size again! Some stupid 16 year old girl that was bagging our groceries at the store asked me if I was having twins, and when I told her no she looked shocked and said, "really...there's only one in there?!" I wanted to slap her! I have only gained 28 1/2 lbs which is nothing compared to my 52lbs that I gained with Bella, but man...I feel like I am carrying a 50lb baby because it's all in my belly. I'm thinking she might be a tall baby!

I had my 38 week check up today and am a little over 1cm dilated. So...things are progressing just not fast enough! LOL! I still have a little less than two weeks until my due date. She could come earlier if she wants though...I'm just sayin'! HaHa!

Bella's Princess Makeover!

On Saturday we went to the mall for some shoppin' and they were doing princess makeovers at the toy store. Of course...Miss Bella had to have one! So she was Cinderella for the day. So Adorable!

Then we decided to go out to the Japanese Grill again for dinner. Yumm!

37 Weeks!

baby growth
I cannot believe that our little girl could arrive any day now! I am 37 weeks pregnant today which is so exciting! She is moving around like crazy, especially when I have braxton hicks contractions which is annoying actually. It feels like my uterus is being shrink wrapped and then she kicks the crap out of me. So uncomfortable! I have been having alot more heartburn too which kind of sucks! There is an old wives tale that if you have a ton of heartburn then your baby will have alot of hair...Weird! We'll see I guess! 3 weeks til my due date. I hope it goes by fast!

Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar

On Saturday Robby decided to take Bella and I out to dinner which was a ton of fun! We went to a Japanese grill where they cook all of the food at your table. It's so fun when the cooks do tricks n stuff. I was jealous of the table next to us! Their cook was awesome! He was tossing food in the air n having the people catch shrimp in their mouths! Ours made an onion volcano...which was cool, but that was it! The food was really good though! Miss Bella thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread! HaHa!

Robby's Graduation

Robby graduated from his 2 week Warrior Leadership Course (WLC) on wednesday and finally got to come home. Yay! He is officially an NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer) now! I was pretty impressed that out of all of those soldiers Bella knew exactly which one was her daddy! So Cute!

Here is Robby saying the creed during his graduation ceremony. He is the third one(on the right)

This is a video of Robby receiving his diploma. He is the fifth one to be called.

36 Week Check Up!

I had my 36 week check up today! Our baby girl is in position ( head down)! I am dilated to 1 cm, which is exciting! Although, I kinda wish the doctor had said that I was like 4 cm! HaHa! I'm ready to get this show on the road!

I have been having some mild contractions lately, but the doctor said, "who cares! If you go in to labor...you go into labor." I really hope that that lady doesn't deliver our baby! She was kind of weird and a little bit rude! I guess at the end of this week I will be considered full term so having contractions is ok at this point. At least things are progressing! Less than 4 weeks until my due date! Hooray!

It's All Gone!

I was in a bit of a random mood today i guess you could say! Out of nowhere I decided to chop 14 inches off my hair! Yikes! I'm guessing that it's a pregnancy thing because the last time I lopped my hair off was was when I was pregnant with Bella! HaHa! It's not exactly what I wanted, but I haven't cried yet which is always good! I think that I'm just being a little bit picky, but i want it to look the way I told her. So I'm pretty sure that I'll be going back tomorrow to have it fixed! Feels good to change it up a bit! Robby is going to freak out! HaHa!

35 weeks...35 days to go!

Well yesterday marked my 35th week being pregnant! Only 35 days to go...If she's on time that is! I would have loved nothing more than to max and relax all day long! I have been so tired lately! I am in desperate need of a spa day! Ha ha!

Unfortunately, instead of getting some much needed rest, I spent 9 hrs in the emergency room last night! Fun Fun! Poor Miss Bella had gotten a fever of 105 at about 9:00pm, so off we went to the hospital. Poor thing! She was so miserable! I waited in that stupid waiting room for 41/2 hrs before they called us back for her to be examined! Which is awesome if you are pregnant and want to have the legs, ankles, and feet of a 600 lb woman! I swelled up like a balloon! Ridiculous! They couldn't bring her fever down with just medicine so they gave her an IV! I wanted to cry! It was so sad, but she was a trooper. The doctors took blood & urine, ran a ton of labs, gave her chest x-rays...the whole nine yards! Finally at 6:30 this morning they concluded that she has Bronchitis! So Weird...She hasn't coughed once!

Rock The Fort '08

On Saturday night I decided to take Miss Bella to Rock the Fort '08. It was a blast! There was a concert and all of the nachos and watermelon sno-cones we could handle! At the end of the night they had a big fireworks show. It was definitely Bella's favorite part of the evening! I video taped it with Bella being hillarious in the background but she got a hold of my video camera and deleted it :o(

I still managed to get one of her dancing with her spiffy 3D glasses though!
