I'm just one week shy...

...of being 3 months pregnant!

I am 11 weeks along right now, due September 22nd and just as perfectly delighted as can be. We are so excited to be parents. I had my first doctors appointment two weeks ago and here is the picture from the ultrasound. At that point our little 'button' was only the size of a grape. Oh, but it was absolutely amazing to see him (that's what we've been calling it). Right when the ultrasound came up he waved his little hand. Mason and I both got teary eyed. We loved how it looks like he's just leaning back and relaxing. What an amazing, exciting, magical, and spiritual experience all at the same time.

I have been so lucky. I haven't been sick at all. The only time I feel queasy is if my stomach gets empty. That's easy enough to solve. Smells are a little rough as well. My pants don't fit anymore. Well I can wear them unsnapped but I have already found a couple maternity pants that I wear. They are just so comfy! I am loving being pregnant. It's such an amazing development that takes place in my body. I am just in awe at how fast the baby develops. I have just barely started showing. I still think I'm just at the chubby looking stage. But it's so fun day-dreaming about that sweet little baby that is going to be in our lives in a short/long 6 months!

So of course to celebrate Mason created a masterpiece for breakfast one morning. I love that boy so much. He is going to be the cutest daddy in the world. He is so protective of the baby already. He is always asking me if I am eating healthy. We are both so lucky to have him... whether it's daddy or hubby.

I LOVE IT!!! I've been wondering when you guys were gonna go for it, but I certainly wasn't going to ask. I'll try not to be too bitter that you're not sick, though. LOVE the pancake. Any name ideas yet?

And was it weird eating your young, even if it was in pancake form?

replica louis vuitton will also be used as a tool for attracting others as the color of the replica handbags captures the attention of every eye. The louis vuitton bags , wallets and other accessories are easily available in this pattern and they are a way of grasping the attention of others around you. When you carry any such lv made on this pattern, you would be taken as a fashion icon.
