Of course no matter what we have we will be super excited, as long as they are healthy and happy. But not matter what Girls just have cuter stuff all around. I just found a new Etsy (all handmade) site I love!http://www.etsy.com/shop/CelesteandCompany She makes these Adorable handmade little headbands, which... are they NOT just the cutest thing in the entire world?
A site I follow is doing a giveaway for one so I especially wanted to post this because I get an extra entry! YAY! :)
10 1/2 more weeks till we find out if we can buy pink or blue, Yeah I think thinking we will find out, waiting will just be too hard!

9 Week Updates

Today I am (supposedly) 9 weeks and 1 day pregnant. At nine weeks they say your baby is the size of a grape, though if you look at my belly lately, it sure looks like something a lot bigger than a little grape is hanging out in there! The "tail" is supposed to be completely gone this week which is fun that baby is starting to look more like baby!
So far I am still feeling really good, super tired all the time, but trying to power through that. Get up in the morning, work all day, go home, try to get some sort of a work out in, pick up the house, make dinner, spend a little time with Luke before I head up to bed way earlier than him, maybe read for 10 minutes before falling asleep so I have energy for tomorrow!

Saturday morning I woke up at 5 am with the sudden urge I needed to throw up! Luke was sleeping on the couch because I hadn't slept well the past 3 nights he was giving me the whole bed (and no snoring!) He ran up and helped me as best he could and we both thought, here it goes, full fledged morning sickness has arrived. I laid back down and this continued about every 15 minutes, it was awful!
We finally called the on call doctor around 11 or 12, we started getting worried since I had NOTHING and NO fluids in my system. She gave me some home remedies but told me to come to the hospital if it persisted or if cramping started because that would mean the baby was getting too dehydrated.
Finally around 3:00 I fell asleep and kept a few tablespoons of Pedilyte down.

Looks like it was nothing but the nasty ol stomach flu, sucks, and gross yes, however THANK GOODNESS it was not morning sickness I would experience everyday!

I am sure I lost some weight with this, and at the doctor last week I was actual down a pound and a half from my previous appt about 6 months ago, But this belly bulge has me convinced, there is definitely something cookin in there!

How I told...


I found out I was expecting on a Wednesday right after work, after freaking out from excitement for a minute and a long phone call to a friend confirming what I saw was indeed correct I began to think about how to tell Luke, I had thought up a few situations in my head but decided to let Boomer do the talking, he is our first born! ;) So I quickly made him this shirt, then I decided I would need to get this memory on film! But Luke would know something right away if I was standing there with a video camera when he walked in the door so I strategically placed it hidden and had some mail for him to look at on our kitchen table. I will have to post this video, cute! Luke was very excited and mostly speechless but I don't think I will ever forget that amazing look in his face, happy and scared shitless!

My girlfriends and I had plans to go to the Melting Pot (one of our FAVORITE restaurants) for a girls night out so it only seemed appropriate to tell them all there, together and all in person. I had cards made up with Boomers picture that said "mommy and daddy are excited because I'm going to be a big brother, Baby Wilson coming Sept 2010" They all opened them together and there were screams, tears, and cheers! It was such a fun memorable night!


It was so tough to keep this from my family, especially my mom, she is one of my best friends and I tell her EVERYTHING! We were going to dinner for my moms birthday and I knew I would have to tell them then, my mom had already been with me and I opted out of the usual glass of wine so I knew she would get the hint if I was not drinking on her birthday. We were on the phone for a long time the day before dinner and I just couldn't keep it in any longer I blurted it out! She was thrilled, the next night I told the rest of them. My sister could not be happier, her little boy turns one this Friday! I had them all open appropriate clothing, my dad was confused at first, I think he thought his was for Bennett!

Two Pink Lines!

Yup that's right! Luke and I are expecting our first little miracle, we are both so overwhelmed with happiness, love, & excitement! Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will be 9 weeks along, we found out right around 4 weeks and kept it a secret for a little while. We had our first doctor appointment this past Wednesday and saw our little bean and its heartbeat, it was so special for both of us and made it such a more "real" experience. I absolutely LOVE my doctor, and she spent the next hour with me talking about everything and answering any questions I had etc...

Answers to the first questions everyone asks me:
Officially Due date is: Sept 27th 2010
So far I am feeling great, I am tired a lot, but feeling great!
My pants are a little snug but I will fit in them for as long as I can.
We are not 100% sure yet if we are going to find out the sex, that appt is at 20 weeks so we have a while.

Hard Times

My family is very strong but has been going through many hard times lately. My uncle who has had many problems in the past, not sure of exact age but around 45, with two young sons Has been in the hospital for over 2 weeks now and we are not sure if he is getting out if ever. They have not given many exact statements but are not really giving him much hope or much time. The next step is for him to be moved to Hospice, It is very hard to watch our family go through this and watch and worry. This has been the hardest part for me because my grandparents and mom all feel so helpless.
Just wanted to update on a struggle that has been hard to deal with. I have not been to see him yet, I know I need to I just have not yet.
Hoping for the best.

The Elliptical

Last weekend Luke and I went out and bought an elliptical, with the winter weather, and the hot summers we needed something to help us stay in shape while we are indoors. I don't really like gyms, I would rather just be at home and if it is nice out I usually take Boomer for a walk.
Luke said "Okay now we both have no excuses!"
However it took us a week to go pick it up, then since Sunday it sat in our garage. Last night Luke carried it in and downstairs piece by piece and started assembling. We are hoping to have it finished by tonight... So My question is a week and a half later we still have not used it, think this will really be the motivation we were hoping it would?

**This is a pic of the model we got, I am excited bc it has ipod and laptop hookups!

A moment to look at the simple things:

Some Blogger friends of mine have been doing posts on the simple things in life that they are grateful for. When starting to compile my list I noticed something upsetting most the things in my list are things I take for granted all too often, Sometimes we need to do a little rearranging on our priority list!



My List

- Luke having made me my favorite tea for me in the morning for my way to work

- A favorite song on the radio or a song I danced to at our wedding

- Tulips

- Our home: The smells, the pictures, the little touches we did together ourselves, everything about our home and being there makes me happy

- my friends + reply to all

- being pool side, drink in hand...icing on the cake

- Sunday Fundays

- Having a dog that get SO excited that you are going to take him for a little walk that he runs around the house wild just at the mere sound of the "W" word

THE MAMA TEST

I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter. She picked up something off of the ground and started toput it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.



'Why?' my daughter asked.

'Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, And probably has germs,' I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, '

Mama, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.'

I was thinking quickly and replied, 'All moms know this stuff... It's on the Mama Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mama.'

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.

'Oh.....I get it!' she beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the dad.'



'Exactly,' I replied with a big smile on my face.

Praying for Mrs Wilson

In this picture is Luke's grandma, yesterday she had a heart attack and has not yet woken up. We don't know much but it is not looking good, They live in a little town about 8 hours away in Kansas where Luke was born. His dad headed there last night so we are just waiting for more news to come before we pack our bags. Please keep is family and grandmother in your thoughts and prayers. She is the coolest lady, so full of energy and if you didn't know any better you would think she was a 30 year old! Which I think is why it is so crazy to me this is happening.
