28 Weeks...and GROWING!

I am posting again and its only been like 5 days, shocker! hehe However, I realized I have not taken a belly picture for awhile now and decided that today I was going to. So the past couple of days I have been finding myself making several comments about how big my belly is getting to Cory, and he politely responds to my repetitiveness with a cute smile and a nod saying "yes you are getting bigger." I don't know why but all of a sudden all I notice is my growing tummy. I notice it when I stand, when I sit, and especially when I am trying to sleep! So here are a few pictures I snapped of my baby bump large and round, poking out for the world to see! I am in love with it nonetheless because of the wonderful miracle inside whom we are patiently awaiting his arrival!

This is a close-up and if you look real close you can see my little man pushing out his hand making a lumpy bump. Do you see it? haha just kidding! This is just me dreaming of all the cute baby stuff I wish I could get! :)

Birthday wishes and a trip to Chicago!

Me on my 23rd birthday! Don't you just love the amazing wrapping job my wonderful husband did? Complete with balloons on every gift! hehe I sure do love him! Cory was very sneaky this year with my presents because he knows how big of a peeker i am, so I didn't know anything about what he got me. He did a great job on making the day special for me! The best present I got this year though was finding out that we are having a BOY!!! The day before my birthday I had a very long awaited ultrasound scheduled to finally know pink or blue, and now we know we are definitely going BLUE! We are both so excited and this will be the first grandson on my side of the family! I can't wait to meet our little man and I already have so much love for him! Also, I got another big present this year that was a trip home to see my little brother before he leaves for his mission! So, bright and early the next morning after my b-day I flew out to Chicago and had such a great time with my parents and brother! For the ten days I was there we went to a Cubs game, Red Robin for birthday burgers, celebrated my brother's 20th b-day, spent time with family, and of course of baby shopping!!! I had such a fun time with my mom going to tons of garage sales where we were able to find some great deals! The greatest part of the whole trip though was when I got to go to the temple with my brother for his first time! What a wonderful experience it is to be with the ones you love most in the most perfect place on earth. Thank you Cory, Mom, and Dad for allowing me to do this trip!
