{The Sweetest Heartbeat}

Today was a great day. Today I heard my dear baby's heartbeat for the very first time. I cannot put into words the happiness that overflowed inside of me when I heard that thump, thump.

Everything with the baby is going well. I cannot wait to meet the little bean, June cannot come some enough.

Baby, I love you

A Mother's Love

Last night I was talking to Einstein about the new baby. He is still having a hard time adjusting, which is normal. With the husband working now, both Einstein and I are adjusting to not having him around as much--it's hard, for the both of us. So, of course, Einstein has been giving a bit of hard time...talking back and all that good stuff. Well, last night I told Einsteing that the baby could hear him talking, and the baby could sense, when he is saying not so nice things. Einstein was in shock. "Can the baby understand what I am saying?" he asked.

"No, but the baby can sense that what you're is not nice. When the baby is born, you don't want the baby to not want to be around you, do you?" I answered.

After a few minutes of deep thought, he came over to me and placed his hand on my stomach and said, "Baby, I love you. It's me Shane."

I just about burst into tears.

{Number 6: Get Pregnant!}

I know I've been MIA as of late and I feel so horrible (literally) about it. I've missed you guys. But I have a good reason and another thing to cross of my list.

6. Get pregnant

sorry, the picture is a little fuzzy, but here's my little bean

Yes, it's true...I've got a bun in the oven! The husband, Einstein and I are so excited. I'm a bit nervous too...I'm won't be as nervous once I feel this little bean kick. I am due in late spring, aww a spring bean!

This pregnancy and is completely different than my first; hopefully that means the baby will be a girl! The nausea has gotten better, but my aversion to food is still the same. My love for mac and cheese is no more. I'm really craving cheeseburgers, but trying to not give in to them too much. Cheeseburgers and steak are my current faves...thankfully steak can be expensive, otherwise I would be buying it every week. I'm still stuck in the sleepy stage, but it's getting better. I'm getting my energy back, little by little. I am hoping to start exercising again tonight after work.

So, now the secrets please bear with me, if I'm not as consistent in my posting. But know this I am thinking of you always.
