27 down, only 13 to go!

As of today, 8 November 2011, I am 27 weeks and 4 days along!! I can't believe how fast it's flown by! I am so blessed to have this little wonder growing inside me! I tell Blair all the time that I can't wait to meet her, but that I want her to gestate as long as she needs! Here are some pics of the "baby bump." I finally feel as though I look pregnant instead of just fat!! Haha!

Stylin' and Profilin'

 So, Belle isn't even here yet and she already has some stylish clothes, picked out mainly by her Daddy, who has pretty good taste himself!!

The only thing I picked out in this picture is the sunglasses! I think the leopard print vest is for a 4 year old, but Daddy just had to have it for his Belle!!
Here are the three outfits Blair ordered for Belle not long after he found out we were expecting a girl.  The one on the left back is hardcore cold weather gear. I think Blair forgot that we were moving to Turkey for a minute! The dark brown outfit Blair bought because it has ears, so that Belle can be his "mini-Bear!!"

I love these little outfits! Especially the one with the huge monkey on the bottom!!
As of yesterday, I entered my third trimester!! Looking back, I can't believe how quickly time has flown by! It feels like just yesterday I was living with near constant stomach aches and nausea. Now, I mainly deal with heartburn! (This little one had best be born with a head full of hair, I tell you what!) Only three more months and we'll get to meet our little bundle of joy! And I can't wait!!

So, so much news

So it's been officially a year since I last wrote on this blog...so much has happened since then!! Let me see if I can give you a quick update on our lives...

|In January, I took a couple of Master's courses in hopes of pursuing a degree in Family Nurse Practitioner. Unfortunately, I did not get accepted to the program. However, God works in mysterious ways. After switching to the Adult ICU from the Neonatal ICU, Blair came home and told me we had orders to move...to Turkey!! While coming to terms with the idea of uprooting our lives and moving around the world, we found out that we are going to have a baby in February! So, a lot of things have gone on in a short time.

At the moment, Blair and I are in route to our new adventure. We left our lives in North Dakota on Sunday night at about 11:30 p.m. to drive to Minneapolis, MN to drop off Blair's vehicle to be shipped to my parents in Louisiana. After about a 5 hour nap, we left Minneapolis to drive down to St. Louis, MO to leave my car to be shipped to Turkey. When we finally got all that settled, we went back to the hotel and crashed!! We arrived into Baltimore, MD today around 3 p.m. and without anything pressing on our agenda, finally, we have been relaxing in the very nice hotel that the military set us up in.

Now, I'm sure your all curious about the baby news! Don't worry I didn't forget! Currently I am 26 weeks and 5 days along. So far, everything looks great. No complications or concerns at the moment; which I am so thankful for seeing as how I will have to deliver in Turkey!! At 21 weeks, we had our gender ultrasound and found out that we will have a little baby GIRL!! We are so excited and can't wait to meet her! We have the stuff ready for her room, now we just need the room! I am so excited to set up her room in preparation for her arrival!

So that is our lives in a nutshell. What's going on in your life? Any news I should know about?
