26 weeks!

         Yay 26 weeks! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! As you can see it looks like I ate way too much.

    Matt and I are finally getting settled into our new house. We only have a few more boxes in the garage to unpack!! It's exhausting to move when you have a little extra weight in the midsection. Plus I'm not used to having to walk up and down stairs a million times...something I'm going to have to get used to that's for sure!

See Ya Later Alligator...



     This week we say goodbye to our Lake Charles home, and hello Houston! This has been the longest we have lived in any one location. 3 whole years! A lot has happened in the past 3 years, but I'm excited to be moving on! This house has been great and Buddy LOVED his huge back yard.

 We loved the swamp landscapes here and the way the sunset reflected off the water. We will not be sad to leave the alligators! Matt also started a new hobby of fishing while we lived here, he hates when I go with him because I'm always concerned that he takes too long to take the fish off the hooks and throw them back into the water! I can't see them suffer! :)

     We also tried to experience as much of this unique culture in Louisiana as we could. We took several trips to New Orleans. We also tried as much of the crazy food here as we could,  boudin, gumbo, red beans and rice, crawfish, jambalaya, and etouffee. My favorite of course were the beignets at Cafe du Monde.

     And most importantly, Matt and I would not be expecting our first child without the help of Dr. Storment and all his staff! We had to travel the 90 miles to Lafayette LA many many times. But it was all worth it! I think the IVF experience and success is what I will remember most about living in Louisiana.

22/23 weeks!

So I've been slacking a little bit on the updates! Sorry! The past couple of weeks have been busy! I traveled back home last weekend for Mike and Laura's wedding in Columbus OH. It was beautiful! It was also wonderful to see the Pesci's again! I have so many wonderful memories growing up with Lisa and Laura.

Well next week is the big move! We are very excited to get settled in the new house. I've been feeling great and baby girl is moving more and more and those kicks are getting really strong! Here is another belly picture...
