Lots of changes...

The month of December brought a lot of changes in my life. Not only am I still growing baby Jett, but I'm no longer working. I was laid off at the beginning of the month. It was quite a blow, I never saw it coming, and the way my employers did it was very dissappointing, I lost a lot of respect for them. So, I was eight months pregnant, laid off, with my insurance to run out 2 weeks before my due date...

But it turns out it was a blessing in disguise. I got over the blow to my pride, we got set up on Davids insurance, and I've been collecting unemployment. Bella has really enjoyed me staying home with her, and being able to take it easy in this third trimester has been wonderful!

Also, we found out that my husbands grandma died unexpectedly, with the funeral a week before Christmas. So, we traveled to New Mexico for the funeral, and were able to stay with my in laws for the holiday. Traveling this far into the pregnancy was a little scary, but after talking with our doctor, and taking precautions, we decided to go ahead and take a chance. It was a great Christmas, spending it in NM with my awesome family. The weather and the baby cooperated, and now we're safely back in Vegas, anxiously awaiting our new arrival.

We were able to complete getting all the baby stuff we need, and now I feel as ready as possible for Jett to get here. Check out my ticker, he could come any time now!

3D Ultrasound!

We went and did the 3D ultrasound and got some really cute pictures of our little Jett!
Look at his adorable chubby cheeks!

This one, he almost looks like he's smiling!!

I may be a little biased, being the mom, :) but I think he's pretty cute!!
So... Do you think he looks like me or David??
We just a little while longer now!! I can't wait to meet my new little love.

My husband is Awesome!

I know that there are waaay too many of these "my spouse is so wonderful" posts, but I really do feel the need to brag about my guy. He's kind of a guys-guy, which means I really have to keep my eyes open for his more "sensitive" moments. LOL!

He really has been so considerate of me lately, maybe this pregnancy thing isn't so bad. He rubs my back when it hurts, and has been so sweet to me. He is so excited to be a dad, and we've been talking about what kind of parents we want to be to our kid. I feel really blessed to have a husband who I know is going to be a great dad to our kids, and so on the same page as me with our parenting styles.

I know we're not perfect, but I love him just the way he is. I'd marry him again in a second. I know we have a huge adventure ahead of us, but there's no one else I'd rather do this with. I can't believe its November already, and our little guy will be here in January! Where has the time gone?? (Time out to breathe into a paper bag)

Here's his awesome Halloween costume! (Don't mind the mess in the background)

Yeah, he's awesome.

Weepy & Pathetic...

I just watched one of my favorite movies ever, The Holiday, and I'm finding that nearly every time I watch it, I relate to a different character in the movie. This time, I am relating to Graham, the Jude Law character. When Amanda is confessing that she never cries, Graham tells her he cries all the time, at commercials, a good book, a hallmark card... Anything and everything sets him off. I know that's not the direct quote, but you get the gist. Do you see where I'm going with this? I have become so weepy! Seeing movies, commercials, blogs, my eyes tear up, and I sniffle, and cry my little tears about nothing. I saw the movie "Life as we know it" with Josh Duhamel,(wiping my drool) and Katherine Heigl, and maybe there was 12 minutes throughout the whole movie that I wasn't wiping moisture off my face... The person sitting next to me was getting super annoyed with my weeping. And then I went to Time out for Women this past weekend, needless to say, anyone who's ever been knows to bring tissues. And the first time I saw one of those St Judes cancer commercials, with the little bald kids, I was nearly inconsolable, David was hugging me, trying to comfort me, and I was balling, "I hope our kid comes out healthy"... I'm a huge bawl baby.

And now for the pathetic part of the blog... (Yes, I did read the top paragraph)
I had another Doctors appt yesterday, I'm now at 28 weeks! This appointment was not the most fun, I had to do my glucose test, and get a shot. The glucose one is super fun, I had to fast for 12 hours before, and then drink a yucky sugary drink, wait an hour, and then have my blood drawn. Yay for needles! NOT. And at the same appointment, I had to get a shot to counteract my negative blood type, and I thought adults could get their shots in the arm?? But no, this one went in a different spot altogether. Lets just say I sat on a pillow for the rest of the day. So I was feeling yucky from the glucose stuff, got a shot in an unmentionable place, and got my blood taken. It was not a fun doctors appointment. Hopefully I will get the results from my test today, and hopefully I pass so that I don't have to go on any diets or other weird things. So yeah, I'm pretty pathetic. And don't get me started on weight... As I'm writing this, my kid is kicking me in the ribs. :-)

Getting ready for the Baaaabbyy...

My cute crib has been sitting in the babys room in pieces for the past few months... And there were reasons for that, we were cleaning the carpet, getting the room ready, and I just hadn't got to put to crib together. But this weekend, I had the time, and energy, and we put the crib up. I got it before I knew I was having a boy, but I think that the white looks really cute with the bedding I picked out.

This isn't the greatest quality picture, as it was taken with the cell phone, but here is our current baby in the crib. She wasn't all that pleased to be in there. Haha! Love the brown and blue polka dots though!! Poor Bella.

It was a fun weekend, hanging out with my husband and getting stuff together for the baby. In less than 3 months, we're going to have our lives turned upside down with our new little guy.

Can't wait to meet him!

Nothing to blog about...

While this week has been full of excitement and drama, none if it has really been my drama, so there's not a whole lot I can blog about. So while I don't have anything to blog, about here's some random robin thoughts.

David and I went and registered for baby stuff. I was so proud, he made it almost halfway through the store before he was "done." I added the rest online. It was like the blind leading the blind... "Do we need this?" "What kind of bottles??" "How many pacifiers?" I let him hold the gun, and do the scanning, but I had to go in and delete some of the pink girly stuff he scanned. I'm pretty sure he knows we're having a boy...
Molly and I finished the baby shower invites, and she mailed them the other day. But don't ask her about them, its a sensitive subject, and "she's over it." I think they're super cute tho.
We made milkshakes the other night, and coined the term "leche de shakques". Respect the new word. We used a half gallon of chocolate ice cream, and shared that between the two of us. I got sick, Moe didn't.
Davids car is taking forever getting fixed, and he's driving a toyota crapolla, I mean corolla, as a rental car. Refer the the DMV blogpost.
My husband & I worked out in the yard most of last weekend playing with a weedwacker, with my six and half month pregnant tummy. I'm training my little guy to do yardwork.
My little man is getting so big and active, I can feel him moving around so much in there. Its such a neat feeling, I can't wait to meet him. Sometimes he moves to the side, and my stomach gets all hard and lopsided, and he kicks and punches to move out of his weird position. He's a funny kid, and already I know he's got a personality.
This weekend, I don't really have any definite plans. Maybe we'll finally put the crib together and start washing some of the baby clothes we've gotten.
Had a psuedo-terrorist attack on the building I work at. Exciting stuff.

So yeah, I have nothing to blog about today. Happy reading.

Our little guy is already a football fan!!

David likes these so much, he wants them to be part of the baby's coming home from the hospital outfit! Baby stuff is so cute! BTW, Molly is already starting to plan the baby shower for November 13, so if you don't think I have your address, send it to me or Moe.

It could only happen to us... Adventures at the DMV

David and I decided to spend some quality time with each other, so we headed down to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
We go in, get our number and see that they're 100 numbers away from ours, and go back out to the car to wait and watch a movie. We're sitting there, minding our own business, looking cute (haha, moe) and suddenly our car jerks violently, to the front, and then to the back. Me, being the blonde pregnant brain that I am, thinks maybe someone sat on our car, or there's an earthquake?? But David, my knight in shining armor, immediately realizes what has just happened, and chases after the car that just smashed into our bumper.

The driver of the other car, who "didn't realize that he hit us" was booking it to the end of the parking lot, trying his darndest to get away. Let me just reiterate here -- we were in the DMV parking lot!! Where people go to aquire licences to operate their vehicles! So the guy comes back, and we politely try to swap insurance info with him. For those of you that know us well, David and I can get a little "fiesty" sometimes, when the situation calls for it... But in this instance, we were calm, polite, didn't even raise our voices. But this crazy driver of the other car is cussing us out, speaking a tirade in another language, just crazy pissed off. I remember David even saying "You're mad because you hit us?? Really?" So while this crazy person is screaming at my husband, I guess he didn't want to give us his insurance info, I remember that there's a security guard at the door of the DMV, and usually he looks pretty bored. I go in, explain the situation, and the guard comes out to help, and the crazy person is screaming at the guard as well. By this time, David is on the phone with the cops, and they can hear the guy throwing a fit and ask, is that him yelling in the back, and David said that he was screaming at his pregnant wife. So they sent the cops over.

Cops come, make the guy give us his info, and we all live happily ever after. Since we were at the Henderson DMV, and the Henderson cops are bored, they sent 2 cop cars over, and asked us if the guy was violent, hit or pushed us, but he didn't, so they didn't get to arrest him. We were wondering if maybe he didn't have insurance, thats why he was throwing a fit, but apparently he did. Its pretty scary who's out there sharing the roads (and parking lots) with us. All that just to renew a licence.

Pop goes the Belly Button

My "innie" has become an "outie". Nuf said, right? Like, who wants to hear about what my tummy is turning into. But it has officially popped. Just thought you'd like to know. My sweet always nice younger sister was horrified when I showed her, she was literally grossed out, and so I'm not about to post pictures of my darling tummy with its cute belly button. Thanks Molly, for saving me lots of online mockery.

Maternity Pants
I finally went out this weekend and bought my first pair of maternity pants. As I am now 6 months prego, its about time, but I was hesitant. I think in my head, caving and actually buying the pants that fit meant that I was accepting that I am getting fat. I've been using my always helpful BellaBand, as I haven't been able to button my pants for a while now.

While I was hesitant to buy the pants, actually, they are super comfortable!! I am amazed at how comfy they are. I should have caved earlier. These are the best pants in the world. I'm thinking I may wear them when I'm not even pregnant. Events like Thanksgiving and/or going to a buffet take on a whole new meaning! I'm recommending these pants to all you people that have to unbutton their pants after big meals, you know who you are! I think there was an episode of Simpsons where Homer was wearing Marge's maternity pants. I understand the humor so much more now! Like I said, maternity pants are awesome.

Blogging is Jawesome!

So I've managed to put off creating a blog for this long, despite lots of pressure from friends and family members. But my answer has always been that I'm not interesting enough to have a blog. But as a friend pointed out to me recently, I am married, and pregnant, so there must be something interesting going on in my life. I caved and asked my sister to set up my blog. As she was in a generous mood at the time, she happily complied, and here we are.

As I said, I am pregnant, so here is a picture of my 22 week baby belly. My son is practicing Karate in there.

As it is, my pants no longer fit, and its getting a little harder to move around. But, on the plus side, I am no longer puking my guts out every day! Yay for not throwing up!

This is my baby Bella, she is a 4lb yorkie. She really is the coolest/best dog ever and I love her. I'm not really a mushy person, but I get mushy when I talk to my dog. Sorry, but I am that person. You know, the person that has a doggy purse, where she sometimes goes with me on errands. No, I'm not Paris Hilton, my dog is waaaay cuter than hers.

And this is me and my handsome husband on our wedding day. We got sealed in the St George temple on June 7, 2008 and have been happily married since. This is my happily ever after. So now, we're expecting our first kid, a son to make his appearance sometime in January. So yeah, other than that, nothing really very interesting happening in my life.
