Emotions are running HIgh

As I talked about in the previous post we are getting closer and closer to Lola being here as each day passes. The emotions that are all running through my body/mind have started to sink in more and more as she gets closer to being here. This past week has been a little rough, I worked a ton, got sick, and am getting the "I am ready for this to be over already" feeling more. I haven't like being pregnant much because feeling crappy everyday isn't ideal for 9 months straight. But then when you feel that little foot kick it just makes you smile and your heart melt.
Although I am very nervous about giving birth, it will be something that I will remember for the rest of my life. That first time I get to hold her is going to be worth all the 9 months that I have felt crappy.
For me I am a VERY emotional person and I don't hide those emotions well. The thing that makes me cry instantly is the thought of having her here in my arms. I am suddenly going to be responsible for a precious princess and I get to care for her everyday! There is nothing like the bond between a mother and her daughter. SHE IS GOING TO BE PERFECT!
I was truly inspired by the documentary " The Business of Being Born" I think every pregnant woman should watch this video (If you have Netflix it is on there). It's not only very informative but also inspiring and YES I cried..I am sure you will too!

Anxious And Nervous As It Gets Closer

So we have made it to 26 weeks!
Things have been a little stressful lately and I haven't had time to blog about this precious baby girl and it makes me sad. I have been working around little kids the past few weeks in childcare and they got me sick boo :( (It was bound to happen right..).
Lola has been one active little baby growing and kicking like crazy! The contractions have started and I can feel her body when I do have one. It is kind of a weird feeling but so cool! The closer it gets to delivery the more nervous and anxious I get. There are so many emotions.. becoming a mommy, taking on the responsibility of a baby, nerves about delivering<-- this is prob the one that freaks me out the most.. and just the change in our lives that we are going to be experiencing through this journey of raising a family. But I am sure everything will be just fine when she is finally here..

A Bunch Of Happenings..

This was one of the best weekends I have had in such a long time! I had the luxury of going home to AZ to visit for a few days and have my baby shower and do some maternity pics..

I want to take this time to say my thanks to my mother, sister, sister-in-law, and mother in law for making my baby shower just absolutely fabulous!! I couldn't have been more pleased at how everything turned out. Lola got soo many great presents and I can't wait until she can wear all the sweet one-z's and bibs everyone decorated for her.

OH and I almost forgot we did decorate Lola's bathroom finally and I am in love! All that is left to do is put up some decor on the walls.

Alexa Storey made this one-z so darling!!
Miss Izzy Silva made this sweet bib
Butterfly bathroom
All the stinkin cute clothes all everyone got for her THANKS GUYS!

22 weeks & 1 day

Holy Cow.. time has gotten away from me! I am now 22 weeks and only have 18 to go.
Daddy has been drawing up his plans for all of Lola's furniture: he is going to build her a tall dresser, a long short dresser that will be half changing table, and hopefully a small toy cubby!
She is going to love love it all once its finished.
Over the past few weeks I have painted her 3 picture frames the color of a darker pastel purple color. I also have painted a glass jar and put her name on it. I want to make it her little Pennies for Lola piggy bank. So here are some pictures to leave you with and a 22 week belly picture.
