Done Baking 38 weeks

Well, at least I feel like I'm "done", but mother nature obviously doesn't think so. Miss Dannika has not made her debut into the world yet. The days and weeks are getting so loooong. The nights are restless, and poor Nick doesn't get any sleep either cause of me. I have to pee like every 5 minutes, and I can feel her wiggling inside of me in the very lower part of my pelvis. It's totally weird. At my 37 week check up, my doctor said she was head down and let me feel her little butt at the top of my tummy. We are getting ready to move into our new home next week, and I am just hoping that she stays inside of me until the move is complete, and I can set up her nursery! I am SOO excited to finally have a house that Nick and I can call our own. We started packing up our little apartment, and it's still a little bittersweet. I mean afterall, this was OUR first home, and in the short year we've lived here, we've created a lot of memories in it. We went to Best Buy yesterday and bought a brand new stainless steel fridge and a frontloading washer/dryer set. It was 3600 bucks for all of that!!!! I am still excited though, cause it's OUR appliances. The photos from Melissa Lyn Photography came in, and they turned out GREAT. I am posting the slideshow at the end of might make you cry! I can't wait till the infant photoshoot when Dannika is born. 

Here is the link to our maternity shoot

Oh, and lastly...cause I want Dannika to read this when she is older...

Rest In Peace....

weeks 34 and 35

Ok. I know I suck at keeping up with this thing, but the whole being pregnant thing has been sucking. I've had a pretty good pregnancy up until now. The last month is kicking my ass...heartburn, indigestion, sleepless nights, constipation (ok, I'm sure you didn't care to read that last one...). This month has also been dragging by. I swear it feels like the longest month of my life! Miss Dannika has figured out how to kick my ribs constantly and squirm around on my bladder. It makes me feel like I have to pee constantly...even though I don't have to. My mom is coming out here on July 7th. I don't know how I feel about that. Everyone keeps telling me that she'll drive me crazy...which I'm sure she will. I can only take her in small doses...sorry mom...I love ya to death still. Other than that, I have a professional maternity photo session tomorrow on San Clemente Beach with Melissa Lyn Photography. Her portraits are GORGEOUS, and I am absolutely thrilled about it! I've also already booked her for a newborn session as well. 600 BUCKS!!!! Pictures are priceless though, so I'm trying not to think about what i am spending on them. For other big news, Nick and I went into escrow last week on a condo in San Juan Capistrano. It's absolutely gorgeous. Maplewood floors, crown molding, granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, bathrooms with designer tile, updated stainless steel appliances...2 car garage...It is absolutely EXACTLY what we have been looking for, for the past 5 months or so. As long as everything goes good with escrow, we should close on the 30th and be able to move in before the baby gets here...that is as long as she doesn't decide to come into the world early. So, there's my update. See...told ya nothing toooooo interesting has happened!
