Baby Progress

Today we went to the hospital for our 12 week (although by the time we made the appointment I was really 13 weeks) nuchal translucency test, aka downs syndrome test. I was a little nervous, I'm not going to lie. I've been praying since we found out we were expecting for a healthy baby. I'm happy to report the test went great and we got to see the little one for a long time! Our little baby is already a stubborn one! (Hm, where did it get that?) It refused to move around so the technician could get the correct measurements she needed. I rolled all around, coughed, we pressed on my belly but nothing could make the little one budge! It was just too comfy I guess :)

(Some of the pictures she took were 4D which was so cool to see!)

The only thing the little one kept doing was covering it's eyes with it's hands! It was sooo cute! It didn't like all the pushing and prodding we were doing! Hehe :)

(This is my favorite of all the pictures we got today! SO cute)

Kid Clothes

I'm in trouble! I always thought if we have a girl then we will have no money because of all the cute girl clothes, but THANKFULLY they have totally stepped up their game on the boy clothes front as well. But that still means I'm in trouble, because we will be broke now regardless..... (Kyle don't read this post!)

If we do have a boy, he will definitely have an outfit like this!

oh boy, here we go!

Lucky Magazine Article

I'm so excited to share with you that I was featured in Lucky magazine this month in the September issue! I got to do a hair styling tutorial and photo shoot with them back in the Spring, but wasn't sure when the article would actually run. Much to my pleasant surprise, I opened right up to it at the drugstore a couple weeks ago when I was just 'checking for good measure'! I've done a couple hairstyling tutorials in the past for some other magazines, but this was my first article with a photo shoot involved. Although I was a nervous wreck, the shoot was ultimately so much fun! :)

Here's a few of the pics from the issue!

Belly Updates

Ok, so there really isn't too much to show yet being as I've only gained a whopping two pounds, but I've had some people asking how much my belly has grown, so I thought I'd post a few snapshots!

I randomly ended up having the same shirt on today as I did when I took my first pictures, so maybe I should wear it in all of my belly shots from here on out! Although it really is not the cutest, it is my favorite workout top though :)

So this is on my birthday, July 1. The day after we found out we were expecting. (I was about 5 weeks along)

And this is today, at 12 weeks! (Ok, I just realized it sort of looks like Roxy has her head in my butt! Obviously she does not!)

How about you? If you have had a baby or are pregnant, when did you feel like you really started to show?

A New Addition...

No, I'm not talking about a new piece of furniture or artwork, and not even talking about a new puppy, this addition has legs, but just not four of them.....

That's right... We're having a BABY!!!!!!

We couldn't be more excited!!!

I'm 11 weeks and this has been the hardest secret to keep! (Honestly, I haven't been that great at keeping it, pretty much everyone else knows except you! But don't worry, you've joined the club now)
I have thankfully been feeling really great, not sick at all, just super tired ALL THE TIME! Which explains my serious lack of posting on the blog as of late. (Sorry)
We have had so much fun already watching the little rascal get bigger and bigger every time we go to the doctor. Two weeks ago it was just this little blob:

and now you can actually see it's little arms and legs and fingers and toes! I just can't get over how much it has grown and developed in two short weeks! It makes me so excited for our next visit in a month, I know we'll be blown away!
'It' was moving all around and wiggling all over the place! Kyle said his mom always told him he was the most active baby when she was pregnant so we might be in for a baby just like Daddy! Thankfully NYC has lots of great parks to run around in!! :)

So here we go! Our little family of three is rapidly becoming a family of four! (That's right, Roxy IS included in the head count! She is our firstborn after all!)

Wallpaper Inspiration

I'm not sure if I could handle this bright of wallpaper in my bedroom, but isn't is just beautiful?! I think it could make an awesome addition to a powder room, dining room, or even a fun playful way to brighten up a laundry room! It'd definitely make me want to do laundry more often!
