Sweet Baby Reese

We had a great time today see Reese. I took my gestational diabetes test before these he was very active and didnt want to move his hands from his face. In fact, towards the end I started to get light-headed and he began to cover his face with his hands like, "no more pics, my mommy doesnt feel good". It was really cute, but I felt AWFUL! I am not a sugar-lover and drinking all that glucose really got to me.
Anyway, he is weighing at 2 pounds, 14 ounces and is about a week ahead than scheduled. He has a big head and is just a healthy boy! He is taking every ounce of food from me these days as I am so hungry and eat all the time....yet I have only gained 16 pounds. Doctor wants me to gain about 10 more so we are good to go!! He is perfect in everyway and it is funny hearing all ready, "he looks like Allen" or "Lindsay, he has your mouth"....etc. I will say that to me, he looks JUST like Allen, but my mom says that he looks like me. I love it! I just want him to be here sooo bad!!!
Well, we leave for Gulf Shores, AL with Allen's family. I am very excited to relax for the week with my hubby and sweet girl. Hopefully, we will get good sun as well. We will be returning on Aug. 1st. Please pray for safe travels and whatnot. Thank goodness Ginny is awesome in the car, it is an 11 hour drive!
God Bless!

New Beginnings

Well, this is our first of many "bloggings". Since we are constantly on the go and so many new things are happening in our lives, we thought that this would be a great way to keep people updated!

Ginny is growing to be a sweet, strong, little lady. Everyday we learn something new. Last night, she learned 3 new songs! She loves to sing. We are experts at "This Little Light of Mine", "The Wheels on the Bus" and "Let it Be", yes, the Beatles song! She loves it and it is pretty easy to learn. After our hour session of music last night, she gave me a HUGE HUG, without me asking for one, and said, "I love you, Mommy". Those are the moments I will never forget. Ginny cherishes alone time with us and honestly, it is the best couple minutes, hours of my life. She has been so understanding that "the weather is too HOT for Mommy and Baby Reese", so we enjoy fun activities inside. Ginny is very excited about Baby Reese. She has started playing with her dolls more and practicing feeding, holding and all those fun new Big Sister things. Her favorite thing right now is "Angelina Ballerina" and from the time she wakes up to the time she goes to bed, she is a ballerina. It is just too cute~

Allen is such a great hubby. He is so wonderful about knowing when "Ginny needs Daddy time" and when "Mommy needs ALONE time". I am normally so active that being pregnant, in the summer has been hard for me with an active almost 3 year old! He is doing great with Stryker...he is now a Rep. and is busy busy! He really enjoys it though, in this is never a dull moment! He painted Reese's room and helps with soooo much....sometimes I forget to let him know how much he means to me, he does SOOO MUCH and I am Blessed!

I am feeling great...huge, but great! I am 28 weeks today (7 months) and ready for him to come out! I just need to get his room ready and have my Baby Showers and all will be just great! He is constantly on the move and I am starting to see limbs pushing from within. Greatest feeling ever, but really does hurt! :( I think Reese is going to be just like his and a little rebel. Okay, so maybe he gets that rebellious, stubborn side from me. But, whatever he is....i love him so much already!

Friday we have a 4D ultrasound and I will be sure and post all of the pics of him. Supposedly, we will be able to see just what he looks like! I am so excited! Our appt. is at 9:45am and I am sure that we will arrive early just out of excitement!

I hope to post an entry a day on here...or once Reese comes, maybe once a week depending on how busy I am with two kiddos.

God is awesome and we are so blessed. I am excited that we are able to share our blessings with you on this "blog". My passion is photography, or at least I am starting to dabble in the this is a perfect way to share with you!
