Kailee's First Halloween

As we all know, Halloween was last night, this was kidlet's first Halloween.  She was Batgirl and she was adorable! She went with me to work and met a few co-workers and when it was all said and done she left with a quite few new fans.  Thinking back to my childhood Halloween was fun, but it was typically cold, one year we even had snow.  Here though, the weather was warm and sunny and Kailee for a two month old seemed to enjoy herself.

We didn't pass out candy this year, but I did brave the lines at K-Mart to buy some for us to munch on.  Next year we plan to actually take Kailee trick or treating as she be a year old by then and while we don't want the candy so much we do want the experience.

It's amazing all the firsts one can experience with their child, first holidays, first haircuts, first words, being a parent while at times is exhausting it's also an incredible experience that I'm happy to have.

Woot! I'm now on bi-weekly appointments and Father's Day

Rather than weekly, what a relief!  My blood pressure was back to normal when we went in for my last appointment, so glad that it was.  I've been a nervous wreck all week worrying about it.  

Also, Happy Early Father's Day to my husband, an expectant Dad :) and to all the Dad's out there!  I miss my own Dad, he passed away in 2002 and he was awesome, so his sorely missed, especially during Father's Day.  I wish he could be here to see his granddaughter grow up and to see his daughter and son-in-law become parents.  I believe he's watching out for my little family.

Have a great weekend everybody!

It's a girl :)

We now have the gender, it's a girl!  We're very excited :) We have a name and a 3-D ultrasound this coming Saturday.  Baby is healthy and so far I'm healthy as well, I have the glucose test on Friday and I'm not particularly looking forward to that, but once it's done I'll be relieved.  Nursery is looking much better, I do need to get a few more decorations and such, but we have until September so I think it'll be okay lol.

20 weeks pregnant and Happy Easter!

I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant now!  The Geek and I are very excited, we have an ultrasound on Tuesday and we're hoping to find out the gender then too.  Jason (Geek) painted the nursery, just missing the baseboards and we're going to put in a ceiling fan too.  The furniture we will get in May, at least some of it, that we will do Mother's Day weekend.  It's somewhat surreal this whole family thing lol!

Hope everyone has an awesome Easter and a great weekend!

Baby Berger's Heartbeat Sound Clip and Quote

Baby Berger's Heartbeat Sound Clip and Quote

We heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time today! It really hit home, this is really, I'm really pregnant! Can't stop smiling!

Well this Redneck is.....

PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!  Yep, it's official, 10 weeks and counting :)  Haven't been able to announce it until now, we waited until we saw the heartbeat.  The Geek is ecstatic and incredibly understanding, couldn't ask for a better partner in this journey.  Morning sickness has been my constant companion but it seems to be easing somewhat which I'm quite happy about it.  

So yeah, we're pregnant ladies and gents!

The Redneck has resolutions! Yes, that right, resolutions, now listen up....

Because here they are:

1) Lose weight.  Everyone moan and groan now, sigh, hang your head, I know, I know typical resolution.  However, since hubby and I have been working on this since 2008 well, you know, we're getting there.

2)  Talk to my family more often.  With the aid of Skype I think this will be accomplished.

3)  Try to move up at work.  Currently working on this.

4) Stop and breathe!  Take a moment to just enjoy my husband, God, family, friends, or just the fact that the idiot who cut me off in traffic and went speeding past is now on the side of the road explaining to the nice officer where he was going in such a hurry.

5) Start a family.  Yes, we're trying, let's just leave it at that.

6)  Figure out what my husband does for a living, seriously, I have no idea, okay, I'm joking, but joking aside I would like to show my husband more often that I appreciate all of his hard work so that we can have a home and a vehicle and food on the table.

7) Spend more time with friends because you honestly don't know what tomorrow will bring.

8) Don't let someone's rude/nasty/petty comment ruin my day, I chose my mood, I chose my attitude, I chose my reaction, and I chose not to let you ruin my day.

9) Learn to accept a compliment without turning the same color as a tomato and ducking my head, or at least stop ducking my head.

10) Bake something for my husband and not burn down the house, I'll get back to you on that one.

11) Exercise at least 4 times a week.

12) Spend time with hubby more, date nights are in order.

13) Make a bucket list and try to check something off.

14) Finish the baby blanket that is taking years to complete.  And the scarf that I just started.  Maybe I should have finished the blanket first.

15) Be thankful for each and every day that I have on this Earth.

16) Smile at a complete stranger for absolutely no reason as much as possible.  Either they'll think I'm insane or it will brighten their day.
