Wow this pregnancy has really started flying. I'm so sorry for posting the name and then basically leaving my blog un-attended for a long period it wasn't intentional life just took a turn for the crazy. Thanks for all your comments regarding Lil Miss's name we love it and we know she might have some mis-pronunciation and we're ok with that. We fall more in love with our little Carys every day :) We've had some sweet moments in the last couple of weeks including Mr. A getting to feel our little girl move for the first time that was a sweet moment I won't ever forget. He talks to her every night with his hand on my belly and one night he was talking and I felt her move but didn't think he could yet but his eyes got really wide and he looked at me and said "she kicked me"! It was very special. She has fallen into a pretty recognizable pattern of movement in that she is mainly still during the day and then around 11PM she thinks it's time for a dance party.
I can't even begin to fathom that Thanksgiving is so close it's like I blinked and my beloved October was over. I can't believe we only have one more full week after this one and the following one is Thanksgiving week. Mr. A and I are hosting this year and I am so excited about that. It's been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to host my very own Thanksgiving Dinner in my home and this year I get to fulfill that! So as you can imagine the Mr. and I are busy bees preparing our home this week we've been focusing on cleaning out and organizing our fridge and pantry in preparation for the shopping to come.
In other news our baby girl's nursery is starting to come together in my head. We've decided on a sweet pink and green color scheme with cherry blossoms and birdies as a sort of unofficial theme. We're excited to go start our registry this weekend. I'm also busily planning my bestie's baby shower that is set for December 04th. We're doing a winter wonderland theme with sweet pink, silver, and white colors. I'll be sure and post pics the more details I get pulled together. I can't wait to throw her shower she is such a blessing to me and I really want to give her a shower to remember.
Ok this is sort of a hodge podge post and it'll probably be more of the same in the coming weeks but I promise to not leave the blog completely un-attended for an entire week at a time again. I wish I was a better blogger but sometimes life just takes over.
