14 weeks and 1 day

We had our second doctor appointment today. Our baby was not being very cooperative for the photo shoot though. Our doctor kept shaking my belly trying to get the baby to move around but the baby was not interested. As you can see in the first picture we got a beautiful picture of the spine and everything looks good there! Absolutely amazing to me how much has changed in the last 4 weeks. Our baby was just chillin' on it's head with it's hand up covering it's head. We did get a side of the face picture that confirmed the nose bone and eye socket formation is good. The heartbeat was 154 today. Our doctor got a good angle between the legs and nothing is protruding in formation yet so too early for us to know any details with the sex yet but that is just fine with us! We are just thankful that our baby is growing so big and healthy! Thank y'all for all your thoughts and prayers! We appreciate each one of your support so much and it means so much to us that we can share this experience with y'all! Sending all our love~G and J

Cute little butt picture with feet up in the air- how cute is that?!

This is the best angle he could get for the face.

Good times with Good Friends

This weekend we had good quality time with good friends! Summer and Augie had a wedding to go to this weekend and they came up early to see us on Friday! It was so great getting to see them and we got to show them our house and the big city we live in! (We loved getting to catch up with y'all and are already looking forward to next time- we love y'all so much!) On Saturday we participated in March of Dimes. It was a beautiful morning for the walk and a great turn out. We did a small road trip for dinner Saturday with friends. There is a Bar-B-Q place that one of our friends said was so good so she took us to a small town north of us to check it out. The Smoke Shack is the only thing in the town and it is amazing! I had a BBQ Beef sandwhich and Justin had a combination plate with sausage and the brisket. The sausage had jalepenos inside and it was so yummy- made Justin break a sweat or two! It was delish and totally going back the next BBQ craving! Thanks Ritz's plus one for a great time Saturday it was a lot of fun! We hope everyone had a great weekend and is enjoying this beautiful weather as much as we are! Sending all our love~G and J

second trimester

We are now entering the second trimester we are 13 weeks tomorrow! Right now our baby is the size of a peach! I just get this wave of sheer happiness just thinking about the miracle that is taking place! It is so amazing that I am growing our baby in my belly! This morning getting dressed for church I put on a skirt and it was pretty snug around the waist, I am starting to get a little pudgier in the belly. The message this morning in church was to appreciate the hard times as well as the good since God is there for all of it and it is all his plan for us. This message really hit home with me with all of my infertility this past year and the struggle to actually conceive. God is amazing and we are so thankful for this blessing! We hope everyone has a great week ahead! Sending all our love~G and J

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Easter! We had such a fun weekend with my mom! She got to come up on Thursday and spend a long weekend with us having fun shopping, cooking, watching movies, walks with the dogs, and grilling enjoying the nice weather. I love getting to spend time with her and as soon as she has to leave I start counting down to the next time we get to see each other. She is not only my mom but my best friend. Her and Justin both were great to me this weekend putting up with my crazy uncontrollable pregnancy moodiness and extreme fatigue! We got to eat yummy Mexican food finally today to celebrate Easter- we gave up Mexican food for Lent this year since it is our favorite. We had our doubts about me making it the entire time since being newly pregnant with cravings but I made it!
We do want to thank y'all for all the congratulatory wishes when announcing our pregnancy! It really means a lot to us both to celebrate our excitement with y'all and we appreciate everyone being so supportive! We love y'all so much!! Happy Easter!! xoxo~G and J
