I have to start this post by posting a pic of this sweet boy that we babysat last week for my parents. He is so good, but for some reason whenever he comes to stay with us, Dewey thinks it's ok for him to be bad. I think he just gets excited and doesn't know what to do with all of his energy. ha!
On Friday night, Hunter had a friend in town and he stayed the night with us. We went out to eat at a trendy little place near our house and walked around after. Before we knew it, it was already 11:00 p.m., which for me is laaate! By the time we got home and settled, it was almost 1:00 am before I was asleep. I was soooo tired on Saturday. It would have been nice if I didn't have anything to do and could have lounged around all day, but nope. We had a fun-filled night ahead of us!
Saturday night we went to see Aerosmith! There were about 18 of us and my Dad got us a suite and a limo. We were fancy for the night. ha! We had so much fun!
Yesterday, I did lay around all day to try to catch up on some sleep, but I feel even more tired today. I should have called in to work tired. ha!
So I decided to do the weekly update post, mostly for me to be able to look back on because I'm sure a lot of this stuff will be forgotten. I am two weeks behind, this is the 12 week post, but I'm actually 14 weeks. I will catch up soon.
I have no picture that I like this week, so you get a lime :)

How Far Along:12 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 2 lbs.
Size of Baby:Our little nugget is about the size of a lime
Maternity Clothes:My mom took me shopping for some staple things since my clothes are getting a tiny bit too tight. I have been wearing my regular clothes still with the bella band, but I have a feeling that won't last very long.
Gender:We will find out in Sept.!
Movement: None yet
Sleep:I haven't been sleeping as well as I normally do. I have been having crazy dreams lately that have been waking me up.
What I miss:Feeling normal
Cravings:This week, I was craving Chick-Fil-A. I felt like I would choke someone for some waffle fries!
Other crazy symptoms: Nothing really crazy. I have been feeling pretty sick since about week 6. Morning sickness that lasts all day. Not. Fun. I just try to be thankful that there is a little miracle inside me and not whine too much. It's really hard though ;)
Best Moment this week: Hearing the Nugget's heartbeat and feeling good enough to make it to the gym once!
I have been keeping a secret. It's been hard not to spill the beans. In January, our family will be growing by two little feet.

We are so excited and a little scared! ha! It's crazy how this little baby has already changed our lives so much. We started going through our things to make room and things that we never thought that we would get rid of don't even get a second thought. It's so weird.
That's one of the reasons that I have been so bad about blogging lately. I have wanted to shout from the rooftops! So just in case I slipped, I just stayed away from all social media. ha!
Yep, we are going to be parents and Dewey is going to be a big brother. No turning back now, here we go!
So, a few weekends ago I broke down and watched "Call of the Wildman" with the Turtle Man. It was actually pretty funny, that guy cracks me up. He caught all kinds of animals with his bare hands...crazy. What I did not notice is that Dewey was sitting next to me taking notes on how to catch critters with his bare hands.
We don't live in the country, but you might be fooled with all of the wildlife in our backyard. A few weeks ago Dewey found a bunny nest. I noticed that he had his nose almost buried in the ground sniffing something and then all of the sudden he jumped back and a tiny baby bunny came out of the hole making a screeching sound like I have never heard before. After that incident, I guarded the nest every time I let Dewey outside so that he couldn't get to it.
A few weeks went by and I thought that it would be safe to let Dewey roam free without me watching over the bunnies, he had really stopped paying attention to them. I was only looking away for a second when I heard Dewey scuffle around and saw that he had this little baby cornered.
Isn't he cute? He was about the size of a mouse!
It was awful, Dewey was trying to catch the bunny just like Turtle Man. Luckily, I got over there in time to scoop Dewey up and save the bunny. Now Dewey sits at the backdoor all day and night watching for bunnies.
That boy cray. Moral of the story, Dewey watches too much TV. ha!
I’m just an average southern-bred girl. Conservative, opinionated, sassy, wife, daughter, sister, friend. I love anything girly. I was born and raised in Texas and there is no place that I would rather be. It’s true what they say, everything is bigger (and better) in Texas! I enjoy photography and scrapbooking, that is when I don’t have 8 million other things going on. My husband and have been married for 5 years and we are actually quite perfect for each other. We have a furry baby named Dewey, and we love him to pieces. I really enjoy cooking and I have a new obsession with kitchen gadgets! I am currently an event planner for a community of over 4,000 homes. It keeps me busy to say the least! I hope that this blog helps our friends and family keep up with what’s going on in our world!
