There is a human growing inside of me

How many of you have been pregnant ... regardless of how long ago? 
It is so surreal, honestly. That is the only way I can think to explain it. If you seriously stop and think about it for a minute, there is a human being growing inside of my belly ... in near 6 weeks I will be holding him in my arms - knowing he was just inside me.... ummm Sur-Real!

I know it has been some time since I have had a chance to update everyone, but here's the low-down:

2 weeks ago, Hubby and I bought our very first house!!! We are so excited and things have just been a whirlwind! We moved in for a full week, and almost another full week later we finally got a great portion of boxes unpacked - thanks to my Mom & Jerry!! There's still so much to do but we actually live in a house that is ours! Sometimes we have to keep reminding ourselves that we are not just on vacation and won't ever be returning to our rental!

That being said, now it's time for an update on BABY! He is wonderful! I have my last bi-weekly appointment this coming Thursday, and then we go weekly!! As per my due date (2/24), I am 34 weeks today, however I am 35 weeks Wednesday based on his measurements since about at least 20 weeks! The last 30 weeks have just flown by and I can't believe it's almost done!! I could use another 3-4 good weeks to settle everything but we are pretty ready for our baby boy to join us!
Soon I will have the nursery all set up, then I can share all the details and also share all about my baby showers, yep I had more than 1, technically more than 2!!
Before I go, I just want to say, also, how extremely wonderful my husband has been!! He had to move our whole apartment, with some help from friends , while I just directed :) and he has been so great in getting anything we (I) need (want) for the baby!

Ohh and don't miss out on the GreenPath Baby banner I have added to the right side of the blog!! GBP is such an amazing local company - I get my cloth diapers, wipes, balms, etc from there! Watch for more reviews about Vanessa and GreenPath Baby!!

That's all for now, I think! Until next time, which will be much sooner than the last time! :)



  1. You and Ty are very blessed and I could not be happier for you both! Jerry and I were so happy to help you unpack. Thanks for asking us to be a part of this wonderful event in your lives. You are my shining star and deserve so much! Can't wait to meet my grandson! Jerry and I love you!

  2. Woman have super powers. We grow people inside of us. Then we make food for those people!
