hi everyone! my goodness has the time flown by. I feel like the summer got away from me. no bike ride :( but at least we had plenty of popsicles :) so this is us at 24 weeks. I'm now at 25 weeks and my legs are starting to cramp. it's so much fun. * insert humor :) * we just recently had our friendly visit at the doctor and yep, this is me 10 pounds since the start of the pregnancy. It feels so weird to get on that scale and see 10+. I can gain that in a decade :) But this is all part of this chapter & my life right now and I'm happy to report everything looks promising for rafael and myself. he's been kicking around and now i can see him both kick and punch at the same time. my little crazy ninja. :) Also a big thanks to my bella band that lets me still wear my skinny jeans. I love this product and even though they are not paying me i'm telling you this is the best maternity investment ever. and less than $20! I have not purchased any maternity clothes yet but this bellaband is a life saver :) i can see using this around that time of the month later :) hehee.
In preparation for our baby shower mr.handsome and i visited the big box store for babies over the weekend and WOW how overwhelming! it was our first time and i promise you i tried with all my might. i wimped out at like aisle 24. i got hungry and thirsty and oh so done with the question "do we really need this?". mr.handsome saved the day. we exited and went for an early lunch ( mexican carne asada fries :) hahaaa! if any of you have any suggestions on the ONE thing you think we REALLY cannot live without please let me know. I just can't go looking through 100 aisles of stuff again. And i certainly trust your advice :)
