Pregnancy...yes, it is a wonderful thing, and I am so grateful to be pregnant! But is definitely not all glamour and glow! :) That glow you hear of, that's probably the excess oil which creates the extra zits that Dustin so lovingly calls my 'braille' on my forehead, lol! I have found that I am sleeping a LOT more. I can easily clock in 12 hour sleeping shifts. I could do that before once in a while too but now it seems a more frequent thing. I told Dustin I felt like all I did this past weekend at the cabin was sleep, it was kind of true :) But sometimes sleeping is the only thing that cures the nausea, and my justification is that after the baby I won't get to sleep like this so I am livin' it up right now!! :)

It's crazy how attached I have become to the baby in the last few weeks. I talk to it and beg for it to move so I can feel, lol. I know it's still early, and I am sure my little rascal is moving all the time, just can't yet feel it!! :) :) In 14 days we find out! Yes, my friends, this is a countdown and I am starting it now! Only 2 weeks!!!! YAY!

We couldn't find our camera for our super fun cabin trip, but sufficeth to say I am sure I can squander a few pics from other friends. We had a great time. We roasted smores, played games, sang, and so much more. It was my first trip to the cabin and I loved it! We had a few issues arise with everything but we managed to stay alive :) :). Thank you friends for spending a great weekend with us!

Will write more later! I am trying to update you guys more! :)

A little obsessed am I...

So, I have been scouting 'etsy', which I have only recently discovered. Really I've been looking for cute and unique baby items, and I found these hats, which I am totally buying for my little one. The maker calls them Mini Monkeys! Since our little one is coming in the winter time, they seem about right...babies need hats, okay?! :-D You can get them with little bows on them for girls too, haha.

Apparently, Dustin thinks these are the ugliest things he has ever seen...I guess I am going to have to try and convince him, lol.

The price tag is a little hefty but I think they are just too cute :)

Next funny one, this lady makes these little terry cloth 'monsters' on onesies...they are too cute! I'm thinking more for a little boy, but yeah...username nissalisa

Okay, 15 weeks and more to share :)


Okay, so I was a bit embarrassed but I figured I would catalog my 'belly' pics so someday I could look back and see them :) I have lost 8 lbs since becoming pregnant, more or less not because I'm eating less but because even still a bit of it comes right back up after it's been eaten. Yes, the bane of my existence right now is that I still have morning sickness! :( But it's alright! I look at it as a blessing that the hormones causing this are helping my little one to grow!

SO here is the fun part...

We get to find out if we are having a little boy or girl on June 10th. That means you are free to take a gander at it, because the results will be posted in 2 and a half weeks! If you believe the old wives tales, I kind of have mixed results. The baby's heart rate was 171 at the last checkup, I don't know if I am carrying high or low (I don't think I look pregnant yet), The chinese gender chart and my basic intuition says boy. But we will see what is right on June 10th!! :) So please, feel free to guess just for the fun of it and we will post results soon!!

In the meanwhile, what we are up to...

We are both enjoying the changing weather of Boise, it is looking more and more beautiful every day. The only downside is yard work but this is a blessing that we have a beautiful yard in which to tend to! I am busy getting ready to greet a new bunch of 3 year olds as this is the time at work when we lose those turning 4 and gain a new class! It's always a bittersweet thing, as I become quite attached, almost a second mom, to some of those little ones, but I guess it's time for them to spread their wings and fly! :) Dustin is just being his usual busy self but promises that he will post Peru pics SOON!!!!

So...the question of the week my friends is...

Happy Mother's Day!

Dustin's mom, Sandy :)
My mom, Wendy :)

So I thought I'd take a moment and write a little homage to my mommies :) on this Mother's Day! This is the first Mother's Day where I too can technically consider myself a mother, though my little pumpkin is only like 4 inches long, lol! 
I am so grateful, first, to my own mother who taught me good morals and taught me compassion for others and how to serve. I hope I can be half the mother she was :)
I am grateful, second, to my wonderful mother-in-law who raised such a wonderful son who is so good to me and takes good care of me and our family.

To mothers everywhere, you are the heroines of the world :)

I can't wait to stay at home with my little ones and make being a mother my career too!

I have the best husband ever :)

So I wanted to pay tribute to my wonderful hubby, who has been so good to me for my pregnancy! My nausea is THANK HEAVENS (!!!!!!) going away now a little bit at a time, but a lot of days it's particularly hard to bear in the evening around dinner time, so a lot of times Dustin will drive and get me something to eat and let me relax on the couch!

WELL, the other day I was feeling particularly sick and felt that the only thing I could tolerate was a baked potato. Also, I had been mentioning to him some of my biggest cravings, the biggest lately (and I had been mentioning it quite a bit) was...

Well, he was gone awhile and I wasn't sure why, but when he got to the house he not only had the potato but also a whole bag of dried cherries and blueberries for me!! :-D AND he had gotten me a chocolate covered berry tart from Fred Meyers too (which is sinfully good)! 

THANK YOU BABY for putting up with me and being sooo good to me!
