Almost Halfway and New Favorite Author

Hi guys!!!! How are you?? I am looking forward to another relaxing weekend. My husband has golf plans and I have plans to start working on the baby registry. We have done quite a bit of research and talked to a bunch of friends that have babies and I think we have a pretty good idea of what brands of what items we want. I plan to go pretty minimal and add more as we need because I just don’t want a bunch of baby stuff laying around my house (especially if we don’t need it). Everyone we know that already has kiddos tells us to just get the basics because you won’t end up using everything – every baby is different. So that is the plan. Happy to share our top must-have items with yall (that have been suggested to us) once I get my list pulled together. πŸ™‚

Last week marked 18 weeks, which means we are almost to the halfway point! This is so crazy to me because I felt like the first few months went by SOOO slowly and now they have started passing by pretty quickly. I can remember being so anxious to get to 12 weeks so we could tell people, then just get to the new year, then just get to the halfway mark… and here we are.. almost there! We have our next baby appointment in about a week, which is the big anatomy scan and some tests so hoping all goes well!! Jon gets to go to that appointment with me too, which always makes it more fun! Hoping for some cute pictures because my last ultrasound, the baby was hiding and we couldn’t get a good picture. πŸ˜‰

I made him wear the sticker out in public. πŸ™‚

How cute is this note and book my mother-in-law sent us. She is so sentimental and keeps everything and sent this book of baby names that were popular when she was pregnant with my husband!! She also sent us my husband’s baby blanket… so precious!! We do have a few names picked out for boys and for girls that we love and agree on, but haven’t completely narrowed it down to one for each quite yet. I honestly think I will want to see/meet the baby before we make a final name decision. I don’t think I will share our name choices until the baby is born, but I will say, I love family/meaningful names and my husband does too. πŸ™‚

I got in quite a few long walks with the pups and the other night there was the prettiest sunset on our way back home. Oh, I am also just loving the weather here lately. It has been in the 70s and sunny all week, which just puts me in a good mood. How is the weather where you are? Do you have snow?

Little Tito. Yall, this puppy has so much personality. He is a little ball of fun and energy. He and Riley sleep inside my pregnancy pillow with me every night. LOL. It is quite the ordeal the 5 times I have to get up to pee every night and they both moan and groan when I move them.

Have yall read any good books lately? I just finished this one by Colleen Hoover and it was fantastic. Just so so good. I read her book Verity last year, which was also amazing. I loved this book so much I ordered 4 more of hers and they arrived this week so I know what I will be doing this weekend. :).

Tell me what you have planned for the weekend!! I’m hoping for some productivity with the baby registry, lots of reading and a few long walks and bike rides!!!! Hope yall have the best weekend!!!!
