You know your getting big when:

Several comments that I heard over the holiday weekend:

1.) I think it's time to go to plan B on that jacket. The zipper looks like it is pulling apart.
(Dad at lunch)

2.) I think that shirt shrunk a little since the last time you wore it.
(Scott with a huge stupid smile on his face while he played video games and I was dusting)

3.) Look at her belly hanging out! Well... it's got to come out sometime.
(Paula and Lindsay discussing my belly at Lay-Z-Boy like I wasn't even in the room)

Cucumber Christmas

Merry Christmas!

I know it's officially Christmas Eve but I don't plan on being on the computer until next week so I want to wish everyone that I won't see a Safe and Merry Christmas.

This is the last year for just Scott and I to be waking up by ourselves on Christmas. I love Scott dearly but I can't wait to have little Miss Cami in our lives. I know that it will make this time of year even more special.

Miss Cami is the size of a Cucumber this week. We are 26 weeks along. I was telling my Best Friend Laura that instead of just feeling little kicks or rolls I'm starting to fill a little bit of drag from her feet or hands for a couple of seconds. It's really neat but also very alien.

Again, Merry Christmas!!!

Pop goes the Rutabaga

In one week my stomach has seriously popped. I can't even try to suck it in anymore. I'm feeling super fat and not very happy about my appearance. I feel like I should be smaller than what I am but I just keep trying to remind myself that all women carry babies different and that the most important thing is that I've got a healthy baby growing in my tummy. It's hard to accept the weight gain since I've been on a diet for the last 3+ years but it is what it is. So today, I put on my most fitted top and I'm trying to embrace the belly. Oh, Miss Cami is a Rutabaga this week. I forgot to post it earlier for all of you who are following along in my babies growth as a veggy.

OMG... just got a call from Scott and he got his promotion!!!!!!! We are so excited for Daddy. It couldn't have come at a better time. We love you Scott. Congratulations!

Where is my Sofa Mama

Poor Hector!

We bought new living room furniture on 11/11. I know it was 11/11 because I bought it to celebrate that we are going to have a girl. Our old furniture was too big for the room so I down sized to two Lay-Z-boys recliners and a sofa to make room for all of the baby things. Well, the recliners were in stock so we got them right away. A couple days after I bought the furniture I listed my old on craigslist and sold it within a week. So, since the middle of Nov. we have had only two recliners. Well, Hector was a sofa boy. He liked to curl up with you under a blanket or sit on the top of the sofa and look out the window. He can't sit on my lap anymore because he ends up sitting on my belly. (Uncomfortable!) So, he's left with Scott or the empty chair. We are all so ready for the sofa. Only another 8 weeks to go!!!!

6 months

Here is Cami's current photo. Our appointment went really well yesterday. Her heart is looking perfect. She was not in the mood to get her picture taken yesterday. She kept putting her hands in front of her face and turning away from the camera. Bridget, our ultrasound tech, said that she thinks we are going to have a handful! I said "I know, I'm going to have to be on her all the time." Scott laughed and said "I'll tell her to be good until her mother leaves and then she can do what she wants." Scott's a softy!

We couldn't get her length because she was balled up most of the time but she does weigh-in at 1.7 pounds. We are preparing for a big girl. They did bump my due date to 4/2/09 which is what I thought it should be from the start. So, today is the start of our 6th month!!

Mango Mama

Cami is the size of a Mango this week! We go and see Dr. Campbell and Dr. Steele on Wednesday. We are getting an ultrasound at Dr. Campbell's to make sure Cami's heart is developing on schedule. So, hopefually we'll have some great pictures to show you all on Thursday.

Scott and I were lazy bums this weekend. It felt good to stay inside were it was warm and watch the big fat snowflakes fall. I did make cookies and wash the towels yesterday but that was the extent of my energy for Sunday. Now, we'll have to clean during the week. This isn't so bad because when the weekend shows up everything is done.

Happy Birthday Tom and David!

Today is my dads 60th Birthday and my father-in-law Davids 54th Birthday. Just a few word to say about each of these great men.

Daddy- I've always been sweet on my dad. He has taught me so many things in life. I think the biggest lesson he has ever tough me is to be honest. From an early age my dad could always tell if I was lying or not. All he would have to do is give me the Look or say "Stacey Weller" in the dad voice and I would cough up the goods. He has always been supportive, encouraging and someone I want to make proud. I hope I'm doing a good job. I can't wait for you to hold your first Granddaughter. I Love you!

David- My father-in-law is also a strong man. He puts everyone first. You don't even have to call him when you need extra help.. he just seem to be there ready to go. I've watched Scott and his Dads relationship grow stronger as the years go by and this make me smile because Scott is going to be a great father because of David. We love you!

It's funny that these two men were born on the same day. I guess there really is something special about Dec. 4th!
