From Unreal to Real

I have I told you lately that I {we} are having a baby??  I think I forgot to tell myself, because until we saw this on Monday, I think I didn't believe it, and it wasn't even close to real.

But now it seems that ever since I saw that cute little profile it's made it more real.  And I guess finding out that we are having a BOY {I still don't think I'm ready for another Battle Boy in my life} makes it that much MORE of a reality.

I have now taken to Google and have been getting ideas to decorate the baby's room -- that once was an office that never got finished.  I like to think that I purposefully didn't finish it, because deep down inside I just KNEW that it was for something bigger and better.  {I love it when I'm right} 

I know Baby Boy Battle doesn't come for another 5 months, but I can't help getting started.  I say that now, but I just know that soon it will be 2 months until the big day and nothing will have been done.  Because let's face it, I still have no energy and somehow fell like I run a marathon EVERYDAY.  When in fact, I sit at my desk all day at work and then go home and sit on my couch all night.  {I'm anxiously waiting for that nesting thing to kick in}

Speaking of kicking...when does that start??  I know I've seen the baby, and heard the heartbeat, and know the sex, but let's feel some action already.  I really just want this to start, especially seeing some kicks on the outside, so that Husbo can share in the fun.  I don't think it's fair that he didn't get to throw up with me for 11 weeks, or feel fat and bloated, or feel like he hasn't slept in weeks {when in fact he got 10 hours of sleep the night before} or had to get up in the middle of the night to pee 5 get the point.  It would just be nice to feel something in there for once.  

I'm sure I'll keep you updated.  And apologize for this turning into a pregnancy blog.  Because that's what it is going to be for the next 5 months.  Because that is the only exciting think going on in my life.  But to be honest, that's about the only excitement I can take. 

I'm off to find a place to sneak off to at work so that I can take a nap. 

Have a happy Thursday. 


  1. How exciting! Congratulations on your little boy on the way and enjoy your quick nap! :)

  2. How fun! It is so exciting to have a little one. I started feeling my babies around week 16, so you should start feeling little bums every now and then. Congrats girl!

  3. So Cute! All the other stuff will come, just be thankful that you have a bundle of joy growing inside of you! So many wish for that for so long... soon enough I'm sure baby battle will be kicking your ribs and you'll want him out, lol. xo
