5 months and some fun!

A while back I had reached out to an old Young Life friend of mine because she is a photographer and I absolutely LOVE her photos.  I knew right away that I wanted her to do our maternity photos so I contacted her basically right after we found out we were pregs.  She told me to contact her a month away from the 7 month mark to make an appointment for a photo session.  Well, yesterday I was sitting at work realizing this Thursday I will be 6 months!!!  Then it dawned on me, HOLY CRAP I am a month away from 7 months!  Which then means I am only 2-3 months away from holding Liam in my arms.  HOLY CRAP!  Where has the time gone?!?!  Seriously?!  Anyways, we are both so excited that we are coming into the home stretch....well, we still have a few weeks for to go.

It's been busy the last few weeks.  We went to San Francisco for Fleet Week in the beginning of October, celebrated our two year anniversary!!, got to see our cousins that live in Germany, and now have my sister and beautiful niece staying with us {see pictures below}.  I realize that I haven't posted in a couple weeks but now you know why! 

Here's my little update...enjoy!

 How far along? 23 Weeks

Total weight gain: 12 lbs

Maternity clothes? Have some, still wearing my regular clothes mostly though.  Here is a funny story about this though.  So I bought this super cute J Crew cheetah belt and was totally excited for it.  I even had to explain to the hubs why it was expensive "It's real leather and don't worry it will last for months!" Well, this past Saturday we were out in LA and I had to sneeze really bad right?  We were sitting in the car, (I was wearing the awesome belt) and all of the sudden, I sneezed and pop!  the belt snapped in half!! Clear down the middle!  I was so upset but we both couldn't stop laughing it was ridiculous!  So even if I am not in maternity clothes, I am definitely getting bigger....Guess, I will stick to the target belts while I am pregnant!

Stretch marks? No

Sleep: so sleepy but sleeping well throughout the night

Best moment this week: The hubs and FIL started building Liam’s crib! Yay!

Miss Anything? Being able to eat/drink anything I want

Movement: He sure likes to move around in there

Food cravings: nothing in particular, but I did enjoy a fun sized snickers bar the other day…..

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope…all clear!

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: Nope…still got a while for those!

Symptoms: Just sleepy and my body aches a little more than normal

Belly Button in or out? IN

Wedding rings on or off? ON J

Workouts? Sticking to my runs and walks and I feel good.  I have been running the hills behind our house more, well more like walk-run, but nevertheless, I feel better on the days I do it.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and emotional

Looking forward to: LIAM!
