The letters for Cole's room made by Aunt Tanya and Aunt Tammy!
My awesome cake that my sister had made!
We also had our maternity pictures taken by the amazing Allison Duckworth from Elven Thirty Six Images. If you need any family portraits, baby photos, maternity photos, etc., she is the one to go to! I love the pictures and I cannot wait to be able to share them on here once I receive my CD! I also ordered our Christmas cards through Allison, and they look wonderful. I cannot wait to mail them out!

With me being preggers, I was so tired this year! Booo..... but at least I dressed up, and I had a fun time with this costume. We had a great time! We ended up spending the night at Trevor's parents house on Saturday night after the party because the party was in Wylie, and Garland is SO much closer than Lewsiville. So on Sunday we woke up and I chatted with my Mother-In-Law Vera for a while, and then headed over to my parents house to spend the day with them. Trevor went to play Frisbee golf with his brother Trent. Then we both headed home to watch the Cowboys vs. Eagles game- and.... the Cowboys lost big time. Fail. That brings us to today, the actual day of Halloween! It's Monday, so we are at work, yay, but tonight I will be handing out candy to all of the little costumed children in my neighborhood. So cute!! I hope everyone has a very Happy Halloween! be safe and don't eat too much candy!

The drapes for the windows- so cute!!!
The inside of the crib bumper (I am not doing the star fitted sheet, but a solid red one)
The personalized quilt that will also have Cole's name on it. LOVE!
I personally love all of the colors in this bedding set. It will give me so much leeway to decorate with whatever color I choose, and there are so many choices it's mind boggling! I am trying really hard not to create a theme, but I saw some sailboat decor that was super adorable, so I may incorporate that with other cute things to complete the room. I am so bad at decorating, I need to start watching HGTV!
In other news, it seems that I hit week 22 and my belly just exploded! It went from looking like I was getting really pudgy to HELLO PREGNANT! Kind of loving my belly (which I did not think would happen) and the fact that Cole is a very active baby. I have already been woken up at night by all of his movement, and I cannot help but sit there with my hands on my belly and laugh with complete joy. I feel so blessed! I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather! Until next time....

The on;y thing that was a surprise at my appointment was that my placenta is pretty close to my cervix, and for those of you who have been pregnant before know, this is not a good thing for natural labor. So, if my placenta does not move up or if it covers the cervix completely by the time I go into labor, then I will have to have a C-section. I really wanted to have this baby with natural labor (and when I say natural I mean with an epidural for sure!). But I have heard from many others that a C-section is the way to go as well, I just do not want to have surgery! Ouch! Other than that I am feeling great! Love the 2nd trimester!
Planning the nursery has also been in full swing. I finally found colors that I love, and my mom and I are going tonight to look for fabrics for the bedding. My mom and me will be making the bedding (I thought it would be a fun project together!), and I will definitely be learning how to sew during this project. We are also going tonight to get the car seat and stroller that I want because Babies R Us is having a great Trade-in Deal right now. If you trade in a stroller, crib, car seat, bouncer, etc. then you get 25% off an item, and you can do this with multiple items! So we are literally using the cribs that we had as babies to trade in. So excited! I wanted to take the items home, but my mo told me that I would not get to take them home because that is what they are buying for the baby gift, and I have to wait until my baby shower. Boo! I wanted to mess around with it, but I guess I will have to wait!
Getting even more excited to meet my Cole, and I cannot wait for these next 20 weeks to fly by!! Talk to you all later! ;)
