Here is a little picture book version of our weekend... (a lot to catch up on!)
I didn't get a picture of this, but on Wednesday
Thursday my sister got in town and we made it an El Porton night! I know I crave it sometimes, but when you live a thousand miles away I can only imagine! It was a lot of fun and I stayed up until after 1:00 a.m. talking with my sister & mom!! I. cannot. hang. anymore. Ha! I was hurting when the clock struck midnight, but I knew I didn't get these moments very often so I toughed it out. Let's just say I felt almost hung over on Sat. after my "late night". Haha! Hopefully it's just pregnancy and not that I'm getting old, ha.
Friday we had a lunch date at Thyme Bistro - I love this little place! It's right around the corner from my house and the patio is perfect for a nice quiet lunch or dinner.
Friday night was BBQ night at the Hemphill's. Patio time at the parentals never fails for a fun time! My mom and sis said they had a few things to give me and Chris for baby Grayson so to come over a little early. Well we arrived and there was no "few things" about it - they had me a dadgum mini shower! Ha! They way out did themselves!! Grayson got so much cute stuff!! :)
Momma & Daddy!
and my other favorite;)
Saturday we went to Mr. Hudson Miller's 1st birthday party! The weather was beautiful and it was great to see some good friends! And most of all mister Hudson looked as precious as ever:) Saturday night we had a relaxing night and watched the Grizzlies game at my parents. We made a pallet like old times and cuddled ourselves to sleep! It was great!
Sunday was of course Easter and Chris & I got to host our first Easter Sunday!! We went to church with my family and then headed to our house for some good grub & good company! Chris tried out a fried turkey in his oil less fryer I bought him for Christmas. It turned out yummy, but was so huge it took forever to cook... so we demeated (word?) him as much as we could and then stuck him back on to cook while we ate. Next time we will start that big bird a lot earlier. A little different than our little chicken we usually cook! All in all the meal was wonderful and I think I pulled it off with the help of my mom & mother-in-law!
And yes, Meg & Dave are the reigning egg toss champs!!
I'm 23 weeks!
How Far Along: 22/23 weeks
Size of baby: The size of a spaghetti squash/ jicama …11 ½ inches long, about 1 lb.
Maternity Clothes: Mostly pants and some tops
Gender: IT’S A BOY!!!!!!!
Movement: He has been moving a lot more! I feel more continuous movement instead of just kicks here and there!
Sleep: Sleep is good, can’t complain. I miss being able to sleep in on the weekends. My body is waking me up earlier than I’d like- but I guess I should get used to that :)
What I miss: Nothing really
Cravings: Coke Icees and Ice Cream (Yes, the Easter bunny knew my guilty pleasure:) )Symptoms: Just feeling larger – I know, I know everyone says “just wait…” it’s just a major change in the abdominal region I’m adjusting too ha, but can’t complain!
Best Moment this week: Week 22- FINALLY having my sister here to rub on Grayson!! He loves Aunt Uerster already! Week 23- Of course seeing our little angel on the ultrasound! I just love him;)
As I enjoy this beautiful weather today, I can't help but think of all the people that lost so much and even loved ones in the horrible tornadoes this week! :( My prayers are with you all! TGI(almost)F!!! Hope the Grizzlies win tomorrow!! :) Love you all bunches!!
