Flashback: music memories

Mandi, this post is for you. This song was on an old Dawson's creek soundtrack that my mom fell in love with and me and Mandi listened to constantly- but only 1 song: Life's a Bitch, by Shooter. It was probably 10 years ago we heard this song, we were in our last years of gradeschool, as we were obsessed with Jelly Stone Park, which was a local campground in our hometown. We went there almost every week for dances and cute boys, oh the good times. This song was always playing in the car that summer. So here's the video hope you enjoy it! Although it has more of a sentimental value than anything.

So does this bring back any memories for you?

a new addition...

So as you can see I have not been on the blog world for a while. But I promise to blog more now! I have some news! Phil and I are going to have a new addition to the family :) and no it's not any kittens or puppies, we are having a baby.

So as I go through the stages of pregnancy I will keep you all updated, and hoping (since being a new mom) you will have some tips for me! 

To this day I am 12 weeks 3 days pregnant. I am due on Christmas eve, I am undecided how I feel about that, I'm not looking forward to being in the hospital on the most wonderful days of the year! However, it would be the best Christmas present ever!

This is my child thus far:

Baby's face is looking more human as his eyes have moved to the front of his head and his ears are in place. Hooray! Other amazing fetal highlights this week:

Your baby is able to swallow this week and practices on the amniotic fluid he or she floats in. (And you thought baby food was kind of nasty!) And in case you're wondering how your kid can breathe in all that fluid, here's your answer: Fetuses get oxygen from the blood pumped into their bodies by the placenta and don't breathe with their lungs. Mystery solved!

On a side note, Phil and I have been butting heads on trying to decide baby names, so any suggestions would definitely be helpful, I'm looking for something somewhat unique-but not so unique you can hardly pronounce it.

Well that's all for today, but every week I will keep you posted, and like I said any suggestions or tips would be helpful!!!
