More Baseball Fun

Yesterday my Mom and I made a last minute decision to drive to OKC to see the Red Raiders play OU.  Sadly, we lost 3-1, but it was a fun, quick trip...and I always love seeing my "big" little brother!




My souvenir from the game was this lovely bruise on my shoulder.  I've been going to baseball games for many years and I have never ever been hit by a foul ball.  Let me tell you....it does not feel good.  I'm just thankful it didn't hit my head, face or my baby belly.


On our way home we stopped in Norman for a little shopping at some really cute stores and had dinner at an awesome restaurant called Seven 47!  If you are ever passing through the area, I highly recommend it!

The day was finished off by a beautiful Texas sunset!

Belly Updates- 15 Weeks

15weeks, 2 days

Notice that I am not standing in front of our fire place this week.  That is because....I'm in TEXAS!!!!  It was a really long week of travel, but I had the best travel buddies!  1 friend and 2 precious doggies! We managed to make it in 3 days...even though we hit snow storms, hail, hard rain and had a blowout.  We ate way too much fast food, listened to Mommywood by Tori Spelling and chatted a lot!  
Is this not the cutest thing ever!  Dixie is such a little snuggler and would try to cuddle Titus the whole way!

After a short one day stay in A-town, the family jumped in the car and drove 5 hours west to watch Texas Tech play their final home series against OSU!  We saw the Saturday game and they won big and it was a great time!!!  I think Baby P enjoyed his/her first baseball game.  Trey said that the baby brought the team luck!  
15 weeks, 3 days

And now for the belly updates:
How far along: As of today 15 weeks, 5 days
Size of baby: Avocado (4-5 inches)
Cravings:  Anything and everything!  Mostly mexican food now that I am in TX!  
Symptoms: Heartburn...pretty sure I am going to give birth to a dragon!
Movement:  I "think" I feel it move ever once in a while...maybe once a day.  Could still be my imagination.
Gender prediction:  Boy
Milestones:  First roadtrip and first baseball game!  Big week for Baby P!

Random Thoughts

-I currently have 10 books on being pregnant and/or parenting!  They are all overwhelming and I have yet to make it beyond chapter 1 in any of them!  Except...Jenny McCarthy's book, Belly Laughs, I read that cover to cover in one night!

-I'm dying to know whether we are having a girl or a boy!  We still have 6 weeks to wait!!!  Ultimately we just want a healthy baby, but if given a choice...I would pick and girl and Mark would pick a boy!  We will be happy either way!

-I'm feeling chubbier by the day!  Most of the weight is on my belly, but I already see my face getting rounder.

-The Name Game!!!!  We totally thought we had picked our #1Boy and #1 Girl name.  Now I'm starting to get lukewarm on both of them and looking for new names...

Belly Updates- 13 weeks

How far along:  13 weeks, 2 days
Size of Baby:  We are moving right along in the produce section!  Baby is now a lemon.  (approx. 3 1/2 in.)
Maternity clothes:  Same as last week...still wearing normal shirts, but maternity pants.
Cravings:  Strawberries are my new thing!  
Symptoms:  No changes really.  I'm still taking daily naps!
Movement:   I still can't feel it, but I'm sure it is wiggling around in there.
Gender Prediction:  Last night I had another baby dream and it was a boy.  That is 2 boy dreams and 1 girl.  Chinese gender predictor says boy on one and girl on the other.  I think it is a 50% chance it is a boy and 50% chance it is a girl! :)
Milestones:  Made it to the 2nd Trimester!!!!  And...we got to hear the heartbeat last week for the first time.  We had seen it on ultrasounds, but that was our first time to hear it.  It was 152 bpm.

Flower Birthday Cake

I made this bright, simple cake for a friend's daughter last week.  The inside was a white cake that was extra doctored up!  It was the first time I had tried the recipe and I think it turned out delicious!  I will be making this flavor in the future for sure!
