SIX MONTHS!! Can you believe it? It almost doesn’t seem real! I can’t believe in less than 4 short months, our little bundle of joy will enter our lives. We’re so excited and blessed. I know that sounds super cheesy but I feel so lucky to be carrying our little girl and cannot wait for her to meet everyone. I feel like this week has been crazy busy. We came back from our babymoon and have been busy, busy, busy. I really wish I could dedicate more time to baby prep. I feel like I’ve been seriously neglecting prepping the nursery and if I push it off any longer, the baby will only have a crib (pending it’s arrival date *please don’t be late*).
We got to do a lot of fun things this week. First, we had an ultrasound appointment so we got to see our baby girl on the big screen again. She was kind of difficult but we finally got the shots we needed. She was a little smiley on the U/S which was adorable. It was kind of like she knew she was being a little bratty and she thought she was being funny. Here’s a couple shots from the U/S. Her little nose is my favorite.
Our second fun thing we did this week was explore our stroller. I put it all together and tested it out around Tyson. We wanted something inside to show him a baby would soon fill that spot. I remembered my dad brought me home some little Asian dolls from one of his Navy tours when I was a little girl so I pulled it out of storage and we strapped her in. We took her around the house, introducing her to Tyson to try and get him accustomed to how he should behave around the carrier/stroller. We also put her in the high chair for fun. lol

Baby Bump Shot:
I’m currently obsessed with taking pictures of the bump. I’m not sure why something sparked in me this week. Maybe it’s because she’s been moving and I’m feeling more connected but I literally couldn’t stop talking selfies… here’s a couple for your enjoyment.
