Almost 35 Weeks, 30th birthday, and 4 year Anniversary!

     So I apologize for being so horrible at keeping up with new posts on our family blog!  I have been so busy trying to get things arranged for my long term sub who is starting off the school year for me and trying to rest in the AC as much as possible during this hot summer.  I will be 35 weeks on Friday.  Here are some ultrasound pictures of our precious little one!

Baby's big foot that I will be kissing a lot :-*

       A couple of weeks ago we had some maternity pictures taken by my sweet friend, Christy Marini.  We went to my Aunt Ginger's house and used her beautiful backyard for our photo shoot.  Here are my 3 favorites!

Ryan and I were playing around with the camera at our house before the real photoshoot.  My husband is actually a pretty good photographer!

This is one of my absolute favorites!

I just love when he gives me forehead kisses <3

      On another note, Ryan and I are celebrating our 4 year anniversary tomorrow as well as my 30th birthday.  We are going to spend some quality time together and have dinner at the Cotton Grill here in downtown Lexington.  I am so thankful for the years that we have spent together and I can't wait to grow old with this amazing man.  He brings so much joy to my life everyday and is going to make such an amazing daddy.  I love you sugar!

Spring Break Is On the Way!

So I LOVE my job. I enjoy seeing my kids everyday and I have such a sweet, amazing group this year. With that being said, I am soooo ready for Spring Break. I need it. The kids need it. We all need it! By this point in the year they start getting a little tired of each other and the endless amount of tattling ensues. I am counting down the days. I think I have 9 days of school until 10 days off. I have so many plans over break as well. We will go with my parents to church on Easter Sunday and then head to Sumter to have dinner with my in-laws and husband's side of the family. Monday I have a dentist appointment. Wednesday is our 22 week ultrasound and pre-natal appointment. Friday we are taking our nephew, Jack, to see Toy Story 3 on Ice and keeping him for the night. Somewhere in there we are going to finish registering for the rest of the baby stuff we need. So . . . I am looking forward to Spring Break, even if it is going to be extremely busy! I will post the 22 week Ultrasound picture and some belly pics soon. I keep forgetting my camera at school. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend :-)

We're Pregnant! 17 weeks

So I realize it has been almost a year since I have posted anything on our family blog! That is just pitiful :-( Haha! Since we have lots of family and friends who live out of town, I decided I better get on top of these posts to keep everyone updated. Thanks to Facebook, most of you already know that we are expecting our first child in August. Our due date is August 17th. We are VERY excited, happy, terrified, etc. I guess all the basic emotions that most first time parents feel. I am currently 17 weeks so officially in my 2nd trimester and feeling great. My 1st trimester wasn't too bad either. I had some waves of nausea and fatigue, but that is about it. I think teaching 22 six-year-olds contributes to the fatigue, but I was literally a walking zombie for most of my 1st trimester. Thank goodness I have a hubby who is a good cook and helps around the house because I am spent by the time I get home in the afternoons. We had our first Ultrasound in January at about 10 weeks. Everything looked great and the heartbeat was really strong. We decided that we want to be surprised and we aren't going to find out the sex until we deliver. It is so funny how much that drives family and friends crazy! I read somewhere that only 30 percent of expectant parents keep the sex a surprise. Well we are in that 30 percent! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law didn't find out the sex of their boys until they were born and it was so fun hearing everyone's guesses and watching all of the excitement. My students keep saying they think I'm having a boy. I guess we will see in August. I will post some belly pictures soon. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
