Kick Counts and Cuteness!!

Well I started doing my kick counts and the doc said to make sure I was counting at least 10 kicks (or rolls or punches) in a 2 hour period. Well our little guy is so active, I can count 1o movements usually withing a 20-30 minute period and sometimes less. He has grown very very active in a past few weeks. I love it!!

We went to the doctor last friday for our Fetal Echocardiogram and everything looked great! We are so thankful for this news!
We tried to get some good shots of our little man but as usual he displayed his daddys mannerisms and was very camera shy! He kept his hands in his face the entire time. We got a couple side shots and one face shot that is not in this shot you can definately see he is starting to fill out, looks like some chubby cheeks!! There is nothing cuter than cheek chub in my opinion!!
Covering his little face!

Look at those cheeks!!

If the old wives tale is true...all this hair may be whats causing all this heartburn!!

Look at those precious little toes!

29 Weeks

We have officially begun counting down!! Lots to do before our little man arrives!!
This week Parker is the size of a squash! He is continuing to grow and is finally putting on some baby fat in there!!

Thing have been going good here. I have been feeling great other than not sleeping well. I just cannot seem to get comfy on my matter what I do!
The weather here in PA is beautiful this time of year, we have had our a/c off for almost 2 weeks now. It in the 70s during the day and 40s and 50s at night. I am loving it!!! All of the trees are starting to change color and it is beautiful driving up in the mountains.
We have definately been taking advantage of the weather enjoying long walks and taking Miss Bella to the dog park a few times a week. She has been quite spoiled lately...I think I am preparing for the guilt I will feel once Parker arrives!!

I heart all things personalized!!

I am a huge fan of almost anything personalized! I guess its just the southern girl in me and all that time spent at Swoozies!!
I would really love love love to have my own monogram machine!!
(Wayne if your reading this...hint hint!)

Here are a few of pics of the personalized items Parker has so far!

I found this on Etsy. Obviously the one I got doesn't say "Jack", this was just a good photo of it!

Another Etsy purchase!!

This is a gift from my cousin Brittney!! I Love it!!

These are a gift from my cousin Liz...can we say great minds think alike! Love them!

We also have some Texas Tech gear on its way!! Have to have the little man ready to watch the last month of college football with his daddy!!

Oh how I miss you!

So far this pregnancy there has been nothing that I have really craved. I hear someone talk about something and it sounds good, so I want it...but no real cravings.
That is except for sushi. I think about it often. How much I miss it, what I am going to get the first time I eat it again, you get the idea.
So until we meet again...I will live vicariously through those who can still enjoy your company!
