We are so getting this...

Love it!

We are off to Newport Beach this weekend for the wedding of two fellow Cal Poly alums.

Have a good weekend!

I Passed!

Good news, I passed my glucose test and don't have gestational diabetes! This is very exciting because I can't imagine cutting out anything and everything that's yummy (klondike bars, sour strings, marshmallows, cookies, chocolate...)

We heard the baby's heartbeat yesterday at our doctor's appointment and it was very loud. I just read on thebump.com that Mike might even be able to hear the heartbeat by putting his ear to my belly. How cool is that??

The baby is growing (as is my stomach!) and is now as big as an eggplant.
We are going to a rock concert in the park tonight. It has been hot and gorgeous out in the burbs all week. Fingers crossed that this summer weather is here to stay (especially since I don't really own any pants that fit.)

Baby Brennan

I spent last weekend in Portland celebrating my good friend Katy's BIG 30. We had a blast exploring the city, eating, checking out breweries (no, I didn't partake!) and shopping. Since I couldn't participate in one of Portland's favorite pastimes (beer drinking), I took advantage of the second best thing (tax free shopping)! I bought my diaper bag/birthday present. And yes, I know my birthday is not until September, but I just wanted to make things as easy as possible for Mike.

One of the higlights of the trip was hanging out with Katy's three month old son, Brennan. He was one of the best babies I have ever been around. He posed for pictures, barely cried and was just all around a super sweet boy. On top of which, did I mention how totally adorable he is? My fingers are triple crossed that our little baby is as much of an angel as Baby Dude's future BFF, Baby Brennan.

Six Months

In honor of hitting the six month mark, I have decided to post a couple of belly pics.


As my stomach grows I have become more and more obsessed with the scale. I have never really been that weight obsessed, but there is something fascinating (ok, who am I kidding - petrifying!) about seeing the numbers tick upward every time I weigh myself. I am getting dangerously close to a number that I have never seen before - even after my college Euro-binge. I guess that's what happens when you eat a whole bag of Mother's Animal cookies. But really, how good are they? And I thought I was never going to be able to have them again with the whole going out of business fiasco.

I should probably apologize in advance to my friend Wren who has asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding come August. I promise, I will stop eating cookies. Ok, no I don't....

He's getting bigger...

Danielle's been feeling the baby kick for quite some time, but Monday night was a first for me. I put my hand on her growing belly and felt quite a few big movements! It was pretty amazing. I cannot believe that we are less than 4 months away from meeting this little guy. We're getting closer to being ready for him, and Danielle has a new idea for the nursery every day. I told her that she can decorate the room any way she wants as I really don't want to be too involved in this. If she was ever deciding between two options to get for the nursery, and wanted my opinion, she doesn't need to ask. My preference will always be the cheaper one!
