My diaper bag! It is the Vera Bradley Java Blue Baby Bag, and I am in L.O.V.E!!!
Words cannot express how much I love Maddox. When I think about how God has chosen me to be his mom, I just want to bawl my eyes out because I know I have been truly blessed! I have enjoyed my last three doctor’s appointments because I have gotten to see him each time! I love seeing how much he’s grown since the last visit. Just thought I would post his cute profile pic! =)
I know I say this each time, but I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone by! I cannot believe I am 22 weeks already! I am feeling pretty good, except for some round ligament pain, and I am starting to get tired again. It is probably because I have a basketball strapped to my belly! Ha! I am looking forward to my monthly doctor’s visit on Tuesday. We have another ultrasound to view his heart only, because the radiologist did not get good enough pictures in my doctor’s opinion. She doesn’t think anything is wrong and his heart rate is always excellent, but she wants to get better views just to make sure. Hopefully, Maddox will pose for the camera! :)
How Far Along: 22 weeks 2 days
Total Weight Gain/Loss: will find out Tuesday at my doctor’s appointment
Maternity Clothes: I love my pants, but I am also loving dresses and skirts right now!
Best Moment this week: Feeling Maddox move A LOT! I think he is doing flips or something in there! He is very active after I’ve been on my feet a while and then decide to sit down…he thinks it’s time to play then! Wade gets to feel him kick pretty much every night.
Gender: It’s a boy! Maddox Wade!
Movement: yes, and it is amazing!
Food Craving: pasta, fruit
What I miss: cold turkey sandwiches and sleeping on my stomach!
Sleep: Wish I could get more of it! I am constantly waking up and catching myself sleeping on my back or going to potty!
What I am looking forward to: seeing Maddox on Tuesday!
Belly Button: it’s about to pop!
Symptoms: round ligament pain and cramps in both legs! ugh!
Last Sunday, my cousin Kelleye, had her baby boy Liam. We went to New Orleans to visit with them yesterday, but I was only able to get one picture because I held him pretty much the whole time. He was so precious and so tiny, and I can’t wait to hold Maddox in my arms!
Baby Liam. I just love him so much! He has the prettiest blue eyes.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We sure did, but it was a very busy one! This past Friday was my half day to work, so Wade picked me up to celebrate my birthday (the big 25!), and he said we could do whatever I wanted. Boy, is he regretting he said that! A lot of friends have been asking if I had registered yet, so I told Wade I wanted to go to Babies R Us and register, and he reluctantly agreed. First of all, registering is not me…at all. I hated to do our wedding registry, so I was not looking forward to registering again. We walked in, and suddenly I became so excited! Looking at all the little boy clothes that I would love to see Maddox in was just awesome! We have been blessed immensely with the gifts we have received so far for our baby. It seems even more real now that we have his stroller, crib and play yard already bought off our registry, and we can’t be more excited about his arrival!
Friday night we went to the LSU/AR baseball game, and we got our butts kicked, but we still had a good time! Saturday, we watched The Bounty Hunter with Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, and we were kinda disappointed. I guess we had high expectations because of the previews, and I am a HUGE Gerard Butler fan, but this movie didn’t do it for me. After the movie, we went to Longhorn Steakhouse for an early dinner. We ordered the shrimp and lobster dip which was FABULOUS! The appetizer was actually the best part of our meal! Wade ordered the ribeye which was not seasoned well at all, and I ordered grilled chicken with a stuffed mushroom and loaded baked potato. The chicken reminded me of a turkey breast with turkey gravy at Thanksgiving…way too much Sage in the gravy! Not to mention, my potato was cold! All in all, I had a great birthday, and I cannot wait to celebrate it next year because I will be a Mommy! :)
Hope everyone is having a good weekend! Last weekend, I did not get to do my 19th week post because I went back home and stayed the weekend with my parents so my mom, sisters and myself could do a little shopping! I cannot believe that I am 20 weeks…wow…the time has flown by, and I only hope the second half goes by just as fast if not faster! I can’t wait to meet my little monkey! I am starting to gain weight. I think I’ve gained a few pounds since my appointment last week. I guess this is because food actually tastes good now, and the sight of it doesn’t make me sick anymore! Here are a few pics of what Maddox has in his closet so far!
Maddox’s Easter outfit for next year! I couldn’t resist…each piece was 60% off!
I love plaid shorts/pants! I think they look so cute on little boys! I think Wade has a pair just like these!
My sister, Casey and her husband, Jared, bought Maddox these cute baseball onesies! Jared is the assistant coach for ULM baseball so I have a feeling Maddox will be getting a lot of baseball and ULM clothes!
