Changes

It’s been quite a while since we found out the news that Russell and I are expecting. It’s been such a happy and stressful experience since day one! I’ve been keeping a journal for Baby of all our experiences, first kicks, morning sickness and when it finally went away! but I thought it would be nice to have something I can share with friends and family especially since I no longer have Facebook. 

Well there are so many things about being pregnant I never expected What to Expect When Your Expecting prepared me for some things but the other more gross and personal things I had no clue were normal. Let’s just say Preparation H wipes are my new favorite thing! (Thank you Jessica for the introduction!) Anyways lately Baby has been moving sooooo much, it’s the most amazing feeling an assurance that he is well and strong. His favorite time to kick is right when it’s time for bed and early in the morning when my bladder is full! I have finally been able to go most of the night without getting up to pee five times it’s nice especially since it’s been getting colder at night and the walk to the potty feels so long on the cold tile! 

My baby bean at 4weeks 5 days!

 

9weeks 3days! He was moving so much already! 

12 weeks!

20weeks 4days! It’s a BOY!!!

20weeks 4days baby foot!

It’s so disappointing to see this number so high, I being one of these unemployed women have found it especially hard to find a job. When will this end?!

Russell Thomas Alvord, you alone are everything I’ve wanted, you make me happy beyond measure, you love me unconditional, you care for me the way no one else can, you challenge me to be better, you know best what will make me smile and your always there when I’m hurt by the judgement of others. You know just how to make things better when I’m hurting and I promise to be this much and more back to you because I love you with every piece of my being. Even when times are hard I know in the end it will always be worth it. You are worth it.  <3

Just my observation

He doesn’t know how to love her…

LoVe

Love is something all my life I have longed to receive and longed to give. The end of this amazing yet difficult and draining relationship has been nothing but amazing. I realize now how much love I have to give and how much love I was giving. It’s nice now to be able to give that love to myself. If that makes sense? Just what I happen to be pondering this morning.

I think you’re cute and you make me laugh,

You put a smile on my face when I’m feeling sad.

Hugs and kisses are what I want to give you,

I want to spend my life forever with, Guess who?

I like you, I love you, you’re special to me,

And in my heart you’ll always be.

I’ll treasure you always, forever and more,

You are the one that I truly adore.
