Christmas 2012

Christmas 2012
 The dogs were very curious about what was in their stocking
After J and I opened presents from each other we headed over to the Parks' house for breakfast and gifts with J's side of the family.
Later in the afternoon we headed to the Nicholson's house for Christmas with my side of the family.
 The aftermath...we prefer to clean up at the end rather than while everyone opens presents.
Merry Christmas!

J turns 30!

On 12-12-12 my man turned 30!  Now I can say that I am not longer older than him because we are finally BOTH thirty.  We had a big dinner at the Parks' house to celebrate the occasion.
Lorelai did not have such a great evening because somehow she got left outside alone in the rain while we ate dinner.
 J got a new rain jacket.  The first one his mom bought was too small but she didn't realize that until she got home.  She forgot to take the original jacket back so just bought a second one with plans of returning the too small one.  Come to find out it was just the right size for Jeremy so he got an early Christmas present.

 Happy Birthday my love!

Baby reveal party

So by now I'm sure that everyone knows the gender of Baby Parks, but for the sake of the blog I've got a lot of back-tracking to do.  
We went in for our 16 week appointment and were able to find out the gender of little Baby Parks.  We had the nurse write the gender on a card and seal it up.  I then took the card to Publix and had the bakery make a cake with either blue or pink icing in the middle.  The next night we had a gender reveal party at the Parks' house so everyone could find out at the same time.
We had our family choose pink or blue to wear for their guess at what we were having.  Kristin and Aimée were the only ones on Team Pink.
After dinner it was finally time to cut the cake and find out!
 It's a BOY!
Then, of course, it was non-stop texting and Facebook posting for the rest of the evening.

Bad blog!

So I apparently messed my blog up pretty bad.
This is why you don't try to figure out computer things yourself when the husband is not home.  Hopefully I'll be able to get some of it fixed, but it won't be this week...crazy busy December schedule.  
Sorry guys for the ugliness.

16 weeks

I finally felt as if my little bump was picture worthy...although it was the end of the day so maybe its still more of a food baby than Baby Parks.

How far along:  16 weeks
Total weight gained/lost:  Gained 6-7 lbs
Maternity clothes:  The Bella Band has been a wonderful thing because I can still wear my regular jeans, but I did purchase a pair of preggo jeans the other day because they were on sale for $21
Stretch marks: nope
Sleep:  The same...except for the extra trips to the bathroom
Best moment of the week:  We hopefully will find out if Baby Parks is a girl or boy on Friday
Movement:  I think Baby Parks is still too small for me to feel anything
Cravings:  Not really...but I never turn down pizza
Gender: ??
Labor signs:  nope
Belly button in/out:  in
What I miss:  cold deli sandwiches
What I am looking forward to:  the gender reveal party on Friday!
