IT'S A GIRL!'s about time!! YEA! We finally found out that our newest addition will be a lil' baby GIRL!! Her name is going to be Zoee Ambrielle and we are so excited that we now can add pink and purple to the things that we purchase for her. At our latest sonogram, she didn't have any problems this time opening up her legs to give us a sneak peak. Mike and I have been busy working on her nursery. We are excited because we are doing most of the artsy fartsy stuff ourselves. I will definitely post pictures as soon as we get it completed. Might be a little while though because of Mike's busy schedule. But we can't wait for it to be completed and for our bundle of joy to get here. She's been moving around a whole lot and she's quite the active lil' booger. I wish all of you a very Merry X-Mas and hope that you ring in the New Year with a bang!

To Buy or Not to Buy..that is the question???

I forgot to add this to my previous post...But yesterday, Mike and I decided to go and do a little walking we decided to go and look around at the mall. Because I am getting a bigger belly and don't really fit into my old jeans..I've been harping on Mike that I need some new ones. But I was a little leary because I'm plus size..wondering how jeans would fit me in the maternity section. So we ventured into Motherhood Maternity and I just went and picked out my size on the racks in all different kinds of washes.
As I approached the dressing rooms...I heard a girl and her husband in the next stall. She was just griping and bawling right there in the stall. I felt so bad for her. You could tell she was really upset about how things weren't fitting. At that moment, I got a little scared, too! I was like..oh, no! If they aren't fitting her..then I'm sure they aren't going to look good on me either. So I sucked it up and entered the dressing room. As I was holding them up to put them on..I started cracking up..cause you know they have that belly band built into them. Mike was sitting outside of the dressing room awaiting for me to come out and model as usual...ha ha! I put on the very first pair and I was hooked. OH MY GOSH!! I mean..I can't tell you how good they looked and felt. I never would of thought that jeans could fit me so well. I mean they fit in all the right places..hips..bottom..legs..belly, length! Needless to say I was very proud to open up that curtain and do my runway walk right there in Motherhood Maternity for Mike and God knows who else. He was just cracking up cause I was strutting my stuff all over the store. LOL No telling what people were thinking walking by outside in the mall. And I had the clerk just rolling. The girl in the next stall had finally come out and she wasn't very big at all. You could tell she was definitely farther along then I was. But she hadn't quite embraced getting bigger and what all that entails. I most moms would probably agree..there is so much that you go through with your changing gets kind of ridiculous..but then I think of how long I've wanted to have a baby..this is the least of my problems. I don't care if my body becomes warped or not..which I'm sure I'm in store for even more scarier moments..but I'm looking forward to it. I cannot wait to hold my baby in my arms and have the satisfaction of knowing that Mike and I created something so miraculous and wonderful. So...yes, I did buy the jeans in the store..and I'm ready to wear them proudly! HA HA! Thought I'd share a funny moment with ya! Hope you are smiling!
