Hi blog friends!
Once again I haven’t posted in ummm forever! Things are going really well with the A family. You can blame my blogging hiatus on stupid end of the fiscal year close out at work (yes, I said stupid, and yes I know I am not nine!) and being tired 24/7! I seriously don’t remember being this tired with Cecilia during my first trimester. Maybe it’s because I am a momma of one and I am pregnant that I am extra tired!
I am almost officially done with my first trimester! (YAY!) The baby looks great, I have had two ultrasounds so far and I heard the heartbeat on the Doppler at my appointment on Tuesday. The baby’s heartbeat was a strong 160! I go for my next ultrasound next Wednesday, which happens to be my birthday (YAY!!! I love my birthday, every single year, even though this next year will be the last year of twenties…). I don’t think we’ll be able to determine the sex then (I’ll be 13 weeks 4 days) so we will have to wait until August to see if we will be blessed with another sweet girl or a gorgeous baby boy.
July is a huge month for us. We are going away this weekend camping. Yes, I said camping. For those of you who know me well, know that I don’t camp. But friends of ours have a camper that they keep down to the Delaware beaches for the summer. It is supposedly a very nice camper, but I am still reluctant about the whole thing. I like hotels and resorts. I like having a whirlpool tub to soak in after a long day and a nice huge comfy king bed with Egyptian cotton sheets and a down comforter on vacation. Not a camper. Daniel promises me it won’t be as bad as I am imagining. So we’ll see. Stay tuned for my tweets and pictures on a Instagram this weekend…………
Next week is my birthday! Yes, my birthday!! Ahh! I think I already told you that, but I have to tell you again. I really don’t have any plans except I know my momma is cooking me my favorite dinner (a family tradition) of her famous Maryland crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, cajum squash and zucchini and corn on the cob. Oh and I am getting my very first IPhone next week! Bye bye stupid Droid!
The following week we are going on our family vacation. We originally had planned to go to Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. But Daniel talked me into changing our reservations to somewhere closer. A 12 hour drive would turn into a 16 hour drive with Cecilia and I having to go to the bathroom every 2 hours. And I need to save my vacation time at work for my maternity leave so we decided to take a mini – five day vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia. Both Daniel and I love Williamsburg, we went there for our six month dating anniversary and have went back quite a few times ever since. Ci is at the perfect age for Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, she loves riding rides. We are also taking my cousin’s daughter, Kacie, who is 14 so Daniel will have a roller coaster riding partner since I won’t be able to ride anything.
The day we return from Williamsburg, the 21st, I will be attending the Sugarland concert at the Delaware State Fair. I love Sugarland. It will be the 4th time I have seen them in concert. I saw them open for Kenny Chesney twice and I saw them at the fair one other time. On the 25th, we’ll be going back to the fair to see Miranda Lambert perform. Opening for Miranda is her band The Pistol Annie’s. I am REALLY looking forward to this concert. I love Miranda’s music and I like that she is a real size and not size 2 like a lot of other performers out there today and that girl can sing!
Also this month? The start of my favorite reality show, Big Brother AND the Bachelorette Finale. I cheated and I read who Emily picked, but I still want to watch the drama unfold!I hope everyone had safe 4th and I promise to post all about our “camping” excursion next week.
