26 Weeks

How far along? In the picture I am 25 weeks but as of today I am 26 weeks almost 27, in 2 days!!

Total weight gain: Um... right around 10-12 pounds!! I hope thats not a lot. I feel like it is but I keep telling myself that is healthy for the baby.

Maternity clothes? Yep I am wearing them more and more as the weeks go on.

Sleep: I am getting some so I guess I have figured out how to rotate my body through the night. If I wake up on my back it is sore so I roll over to my side. When I lay on my left side her feet are there, so she kicks and basically walks on my side hahah so cute and fun to feel!!

Stretch marks? I am still clear from them!

Miss Anything? Being able to wear all my none prego clothes. High heels, jeans, and skirts.

Best moment this week: Having my birthday with her in my tummy!! I am offically 24!

Movement: She moves a ton but I feel like she moves the most when I am in the bath or in bed. She loves when I lay down I guess. :)

Gender: Our little Princess

Food cravings: I have been eating a lot of fruit!! It sounds so good all the time. Just juicy, fresh, and sweet!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Being out in the hot sun with out drinking enough water. Also if I am not eating enough, like at work when it gets busy it is hard to eat enough so I can tell I am not 100%.

Labor Signs: I don't think anything!

Symptoms: My ribs are getting super sore! I have a problem rib on my left side before I was even pregnant and now having her in their it gets beyond tender!!!

Belly Button in or out? Starting to poke out more and more haha. I love it.

Wedding rings on or off? I still wear it every day. And it will fit I think the whole time!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Depends on who you ask haha!! I feel like I have a lot of moods that I get into through out the day.

Husband this week: He has loved feeling all her flips and kicks!! He gets super excited knowing that he is going to have a baby girl.. yet at the same time very protective!!

Looking forward to: Getting my long Dr. Appointment over with this coming Tuesday!! The one where they check to see if you have diabetes or anything else... I am nervous for it and just want it done.

Baby Size: Head of Lettuce,  Average size: 13.6-14.8 inches, 1.5-2.2 lb.

Names: Blakelee Marie Bland

Rose Gardens

Thanksgiving Point has there super pretty Rose Gardens right now!! So on June 23rd us girls went to walk around and see all the amazing flowers.
The whole walk around is beautiful!!! Lots of fun bridges, ponds, and plants to enjoy, as well as flowers.
I love flowers so much. It was so much fun to search for some of the most pretty ones. I found lots of Yellow and White flowers so I took many pictures of them so that I can frame them and hang them in Blakelee's room since those are the colors we decided on.
Our little model!! She is just the mose adorable little girl I have ever seen!!
25 weeks here!! Time sure needs to slow down. We have lots to do and not enough time to do it.
It was such a great day walking around the garden. There were some parts that reminded us of the movie Secert Garden! Beautiful!!!

Meg & Beau's Party

On June 19th we had a baby shower for Megan and little Beau. We never were able to throw her a shower before Beau was born so we decided that once everything had settled down a bit that we would throw a Get to Know Beau Shower. Debbie did such an amazing job getting everything ready and hosting such a fun night. The food was so yummy!! There was salad, rolls, beans, fruit, and desserts. As the guests came Meg opened all the fun gifts. She got some super cute clothes, blankets, toys, and much more.
All the Bland Girls loving Beau!
My fruit platter. I attempted to make a baby in a cradle. I saw this awesome idea off pinterest and thought I would give it a shot.
What a great night, we love the new addition to our family!! Little Beau is loved more then ever!!
