25 Weeks

Hello friends in Blogland!

Sharing some photos of Wren's 25 week belly shot. I think she looks absolutely gorgeous and I grow to love her and our babies everyday. I tell her all the time what an amazing, strong baby-maker she is, because I will tell you -- being pregnant is not for sissies!

We have been working hard around the house completing projects before the little birds arrive. Last week we bought a mini-fridge for the nursery. After putting it there, we decided it completely throws off the fung shui of the room. So now we have to rethink placement of it, and might have to hide it in the closet. Another favorite purchase is a new coffee maker -- not just any coffee maker, a BREW STATION :) I adore coffee and our old machine has been down the past few weeks. Needless to say, I have been enjoying my mornings at home the past few days!





These pictures were taken last night before our date. We always have date night on Thursdays or Fridays. We both look forward to it so much. With our opposite work schedules, it's so nice to have an evening of just us to sit down and talk about our week. Last night, we went to a new favorite little restaurant the next town over, a small, eclectic, organic/hippie, vibrant university town. This is sort of an "anything goes" town. So we strolled threw the streets holding hands in our own little world. When all of the sudden we hear "Hey there mommies!!!!!" Across the street, I see an old friend coming out of a class waving us down. It was a very cool moment :)  Just to hear the word "mommies" coming out of someone else's mouth -- it puts everything into perspective. We enjoyed an outstanding dinner with great conversation! With breakups seeming to surround us (both real and virtual friends), we realize we need to enjoy these moments and work hard to keep them.

Wishing you all a great weekend!

  2. You two are going to be great moms. I love the mini fridge idea! I tried to convience my sister to add it to her nursery which is next to the kitchen in our apartment. So she declined but when we move the nursery upstairs she's definitely going the mini fridge route! Wren looks AMAZING by the way!

  3. Yes, a mini fridge. The nursery is upstairs. This way we can store breast milk in there instead of having to run up and downstairs all the time. And store midnight snacks for mommies too :)

  5. What an adorable baby belly!!!! I think the mini-fridge is a great idea! Btw, LM might have been missing his WV hat in this year's picture, BUT he was proudly sporting his WVU jersey today ;)

  6. 1. Wren looks beautiful, and so so happy. 2. I love that you've already established date nights. 3. This post brought much joy, as there's nothing I love more on the planet than a devoted marriage. Way to inspire. R.

  7. Looking great! Fun to be called mommies (and to be able to be out and open). Keep growing those babies!
