29 weeks and 3 days …

 ….11 weeks to go (74 days to go) … whew whew whew!! This pregnancy is going by fast!! I got brave and decided to post a BELLY belly pic!! Probably won’t do that again! HA!!!

Two friends have had their babies in the last few days!! Kate and baby boy Braxton and Shamika and baby girl Savannah!! Cousin Gina with Meredith is next then our neighbor Donna with Coral! We hope Coral stays put till her daddy Justin gets back from work! He works 2 weeks on 2 weeks off as a boat captain in the Gulf!! Justin put Billy on notice that if something happens before he gets home he wants a full police escort to the Naval Base where Donna is delivering hahaha!!! Billy prays Coral stays put!!!

SOOOOOOOOO … I knew that your body would CHANGE with pregnancy but good lord. I have the hairiest belly!! Looks like peach fuzz allllllll over!! I hate it! Billy thinks it’s hilarious especially after I put lotion on it for the stretch marks – it sticks straight up! HA … not so cute!!! And these legs hardly ever get shaved anymore --- it’s super hard to breathe when bending down to reach them!! Poor Billy has to put up with a very hairy woman these days!! At least the underarms are being taken care of!! Everything pops on me now when I ROLL out of bed or stand up from the couch/chair/car/restaurant … not too much different from the non-pregnant me, just a tad louder these days!!

As far as I am concerned that nursery is done!! There are a few things I’d like to put on the walls (shelves and maybe a painting) but if that doesn’t get done --- I am A-OK with it!! We still need a few bigger items (we are waiting after the next shower before we go purchase tho ha!!) and we will be set!! Billy has done an awesome job in that nursery! Putting together all the furniture and painting!! He’s not much for sifting thru all the items (and selfishly I like that too :) I like doing all of that).

Billy has roughly 6 months (I THINK) until he is off probation with the police. He has been doing amazing!!! It’s so cool to read the emails he receives from his lieutenant or sergeant or just to hear other officers who have been on awhile speak so highly of him!!! He’s doing a great job and he LOVES it!! Always looking for trouble hahaha!!

On Saturday we are going to have some maternity photos taken (hopefully if no rain) at the beach and maybe other places around the city! I’m superrrr excited about this! Our friend Sheila does photography as a hobby and she is just amazing!! I can’t wait to share them!! Fingers crossed for the weather!

Have a wonderful week – will post more pics when they arrive :)

My Baby Boy is spoiled ...

There is no doubt that our son (whoa that sounds awesome to say :) ) is a loved lil guy before he even arrives!! Our trip back home for showers were amazing!! We got sooo many goodies - took us 3 hours to separate and figure out where to put things in his room on Wednesday! But we had a fun time doing it! Few reality checks ... few tears (mainly mine) and a few things being thrown because I couldn't figure them out --- but all is well!! A few pictures from the shower –

The cute cake :)

My dad won the "measure the belly" game! He measured his to guess!! HA

We got some cute things - but I do love this picture frame from Aunt Sandy and Unk John

Leigh, Me, Mandy, Haggan, Jayme and Maegan (we didn't take the pic soon enough and missed Brandy and kiddos)

Mae and Jay out for Dad's birthday at Osaka's

Me and the Billy

Billy Sr and Faye

What we brought home with us (my folks still have some ha)

No 3D pics this past week like we had hoped! Instead of the one leg in the way – both were up there along with a hand!! He will have to get over this shyness of having his photo taken! Does he not know his mother is Annierazzi!! SOOOO – we are going to try to go back on Monday (that is if he moves head down) for more pics or in the next 2 weeks! **Maybe with a massage thrown in**. The lady is super nice for allowing us to come back so many times and not charge us again!!!!

I am 28 weeks (that’s freakin 7 months!!!!) now and I feel like I just took the test haha!! I have some very busy months ahead of me at work and I pray all continues to go well for me! I have been having some soreness with walking but nothing to drastic … maybe it will continue that way!!!

Hope you all are doing fantastical!! ONLY 12 weeks to go!!!

Going home this weekend for baby showers! YAY!!!!

He is licking his leg in this one :)

We think he will def favor Billy :)


Our lil precious!!

14 weeks to go ...

26 weeks down ...

It seems like a few days ago I took those (5) tests! Now we have 14 weeks to go till Landon gets here!! I'm not stressed at all in the my personal life with this ... but my work life ... whew. I'm due April 10th - my 5 week summer program will start 2nd/3rd week in June. I'm not ready to deal with 7a-8p days for 5 days straight again!! But we are very happy that we will have some family down here after Landon gets here to help out and that we have found some of the greatest friends to help us out during the summer with both of our crazy work schedules!

Jan. 11th is our next doc appt and then we start going every 2 weeks!! YAY!! Also on the 11th we are going to get our 3D photos taken of baby Landon. Hope he cooperates and gives us some good photos to take home to family when we head back for our showers on the 16th.

New Year's Eve was interesting! Drinking water and having people come around asking "what drink do you want" and having to constantly say "OHHH it's ok I'm just having water!!". Granted it was nice to not have such a large bar bill when we left the pub!! A few times Billy would go to the bar and lil drunk gals would discover (via his friend) he was a cop and OHHHH MYYYYY GOOOSSSHHHHHHHH they would just LOVE that and hug and hang all over him - he would give me this "HELP ME" look and I would just grin from ear to ear ... he would then point out "my pregnant wife over there" and they would come talk to me like we were best friends!!! It was really quiet entertaining (for me at least).
We have a few more BIG items that we need to get for Landon's room before it will LOOK cleaner!! Right now there is so much stuff just laying around here and there that it looks like we don't care! Still haven't found a dresser we like!! I guess being picky is about to end with this! We will be getting the crib sometime after the first of the year. Billy's grandmother, Mimi, buys each great-grandchild their first crib! We are super thankful for that and can't wait for her to meet her third great-grandson!!
It's been very awesome to feel Landon moving and at times seeing him move, not much but little bumps show up!! Apollo will sometimes lay his head on my stomach and sleep and when he sleeps he snores and this snoring sure does get Landon moving around!! I can see Apollo's head moving up and down when Landon kicks! It's really funny!
We are going back to Arkansas on the 16th for baby showers! It's going to be a fast and very tiring trip for the both of us! We have to fly out on the 16th (poor Billy couldn't get the 15th off) and we are renting a car to come back home on the 18th! Whatever we can't fit my Dad will be brining down when Landon gets here! My mom is ready to book her flight two weeks ago! :) She is on freakin cloud 9 and ready to be a grandma, Omi. Dad's pretty excited about becoming a grandpa too!! I can see the trips starting to form in my Dad's head right now!!!
Hopefully the next post we will have some 3D pics of our little boy to show off!!!!
