Baby Tabor Update :)

According to my last ultrasound at 19 weeks, today I am 32 weeks and 5 days. However my midwife sent me to have another ultrasound today to check on the size of the baby, according to today's ultrasound I am 34 weeks and 4 days, which would make my due date March 8th, instead of the 20th... She also measured about 5 lbs. 4 oz. The ultrasound tech said either my due date is wrong, or I will have a very big baby. The midwife gets the results of the ultrasound by the end of the day, and I'm anxious to know if she will be changing my due date or not! My next appt. is not until my 36 week appt, and from there I go every week, however, if the most recent ultrasound is correct I will be almost 38 weeks along then! I told Weston regardless if they change my due date or not, I want to be prepared and have everything ready just in case... Also, we were told that she is in a breech position, traverse breech... I'm terrified of a c-section, but I'm not worried about it yet, I think she still has plenty of time to move head down!   Here are a few pictures of baby girl :)

Feeling BLESSED!!

I was so overwhelmed with things yesterday, and allowing them all to get to me. Those of you that know me, know I am a control freak. I like to be in control, it's who I am, it's also one of my biggest downfalls. When I decided to move to Georgia I had to downsize and get rid of a lot of things, so a lot of baby things went into a yard sale. I kept the many tubs of clothing that I had, and I kept the crib, but the mattress was in rough shape so out it went. This pregnancy was not planned, I was not ready, but obviously God had other things in mind. This was a really hard year for us financially, Weston made a whopping $24,000.00 last year... love that Army pay :) But God always managed to pull us through when we got in a tough spot. We had planned to use a small chunk of our tax return to buy the necessary baby things that we would need. But yesterday I just had anxiety about how we had nothing ready for this baby, and there's a possibility that Weston could deploy any time... and I keep feeling like this baby is coming early (watch I will be way overdue :), I just let the stress of it all really get to me. So I posted on facebook about how Baby Tabor is due in 8 weeks and we have nothing ready for her, and I was overwhelmed by the generosity and love that people were showing me! I had people messaging me offering to ship me things, people that I barely know offering to give me baby things that are in storage that they no longer need, people messaging me and asking me to register so that they can send me something. I was really caught off guard... for one, that was not the intentions of my post whatsoever, I was just stressed out about it and letting the world know, and two a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders because so many people offered to give us things, and an amazing friend of mine is throwing me a baby sprinkle :) it really helps us out financially knowing that we won't have to buy everything! I love helping people out when they are in need, and I can't wait to turn around and pay it forward!

Daddy/Daughter Dates

Valentine's Day is coming up soon!!  :) Ama LOVES Valentine's Day, she loves all holidays, but there's always something special about Valentine's Day. Last year we decorated the house and had a fancy dinner, the girls had so much fun helping with that. This year we are doing something different, but something I want to start doing a lot more often. Their Daddy is taking them out on one on one dates... I think the relationship between a Daddy and daughter is SO important, it's one thing if your mother tells you how beautiful and special you are, but to hear it from your Daddy it takes on a whole new meaning, it's special to us girls. The plan is the first night Weston will take Amariah out on a date... she will pick out one of her dresses and we will do her hair and I can't wait to share in her excitement :) Abigail's turn will be the second night, not really sure how Abi will react, I know she will be excited though...

Here are a couple of pictures of Weston and his two princesses... Have an amazing day!!
